Goose Island Favorite In Double Section Pace Even Direct May Be Main Threat; Run Juvenile Stake After Program SPORTSMANS PARK, Cicero, 111., June 20. — Chicago Downs presents 10 races Thursday night at the Sportsmans Park trotting oval. Besides the regular nine-race card, a two-year-old stake event will be staged after the ninth race with six fillies going for ,308. There will be no betting on the 10th race. The sixth and ninth races for the divided ,500 sends eight fast class pacers to the post. W. L. Paisley of Western Springs will be banking on Goose Island, classy filly who has won six of her last 10 starts. Her first trip at Cicero was unsuccessful, but now that she has the turns down better, she is expected to go to the post the favorite. - Even Direct, good little four-year-old, could cause trouble, especially from the No. 1 post. Ben Ash seems the best dark horse since he has been in much deeper in his previous Cicero starts. With Pee Wee Welch in the sulky he should get handsome backing before post time. Harry Burrights Hunter Colleen has shown good speed without entering the winners circle. In the first trip, the Burright pacer goes from the No. 5 spot, where he should look better than in the finale when he has to come from the outside. Norman C. Towne, of Libertyville, 111., sends his Peaceful Guy out for his Cicero debut. A steady performer in 1950, he will be handled by Buck Minniear. Edgar Leonards Frisco D. Cash also has a chance to pick up a piece of the purse, but scores from the outside in both heats No. 6 and No. 7. The seventh race which is the third division, three trotters are out to better their already phenomenal streaks. Kaerl Worthy, under the able drives of Jake Mahoney, has won six of 10 starts. Now and then he breaks stride, but when he wants to go, its hard to beat him. Both Wayville and Bishop won their last starts, too. Olin Humphries pilots Bishop with Tom Beasley in the sulky for Wayville.
