. w j Nine Useful Three-Year-Olds Seek St. Clair Claiming Purse Blue Point-Blemish Entry Engages Rule-One, Nice Tint And Night Parade at Detroit DETROIT, Mich., June 20.— The St. Clair Claiming Purse, at six furlongs for three-year-olds, is the top attraction on a well-balanced program slated for presentation tomorrow at this Wolverine state racing grounds. The St. Clair attracted nine of the more useful members of the three-year-old division and shapes up as an interesting feature. Along with the St. Clair, horses from the same age bracket are to meef in the mile and 70 yards seventh race and this middle distance test appears one of the best supporting numbers. President E. E. Dale Shaffers daughter, Miss Candace, and his son, Charles B., more familiarly known as "Tiger," are to have representatives in the St. Clair. H. H. "Pete" Battle will saddle Blue Point for Miss Candace, while "Tigers" silks are to be carried in the sprint by Blemish. Jockey Darrell Madden, leading reinsman at the current meeting, is to have the mount on one of the members of the Battle-conditioned entry. Forrest to Saddle Pair Dennis J. Gleeson, of Louisville, Ky., is to send Rule-One to the post in the head-liner, and Henry Forrest will put the tack on his own Night Parade and Nice Tint, who he trains for the partnership of Pol-land and Harkins. Others named for the St. Clair are Marion H. VanBergs hard-hitting Humphrey, Mrs. George C. Whites Flashy Kay, Ivan D. Peats improved Money Lender, and George A. Sacks Jo-field. Blue Point and Blemish make up a formidable duo and both have trained unusually well for their engagements. The pair worked together this morning; completing half-mile drills in :48% handily. Blue Point ran third in her last outing at Churchill Downs, while Blemish was beaten off in a six-furlong start at the Derby oval. Rule-One, who is to be handled in the St. Clair by young Sherman Armstrong, looked good here last week when she trounced 11 other three-year-olds in a three - quarters mile overnight event. Among those following the Gleeson miss to the wire were Grandmas Day, Arpege, Impeller, Mad Again, Little Danny and Bona Eternal. Mrs. Norman Hernandez New Orleans- , owned Final Edition, winner in his most recent engagement, heads the field for the seventh race. Final Edition will have the saddle services of Armstrong and he is the overnight favorite against Coin Flip, Ten Gallon Hat, Senator Guy, Whacker Pride, Airtroop and Grand Evening. Mrs. Arthur Brents Kingarvie, victor in the 1946 Kings Plate, is to meet 10 other good sprinters in the three-quarters mile fifth race. Ted Johnson, who rode the Brent stakes winner into second place be- j hind Alschol here on June 8, is to be up again on Kingarvie tomorrow and his I mount may be the choice in the dash.
