Royal Duke, Little Step Head Danvers Line-Up Among Eight Three-Year-Olds Named for Suffolk Downs Dash SUFFOLK DOWNS, East Boston, Mass., June 27. — A pair of allowance events, either of which could easily be used as a weekend feature, adorn tomorrows card at Suffolk Downs. The first of the features is styled exclusively for sophomores at six furlongs and has been named the Danvers. It will be run as the fifth event on the eight-race card. Eight of the better three-year-olds have been named to contest the Danvers. Following the Danvers will be a mile and a sixteenth event for older horses with six competent -middle-distance thoroughbreds entered. That race has been titled the Peabody. M. L. Fallons Royal Duke and Murlogg Farms Little Step head the line-up in the sprint. Those two finished third and second respectively last Saturday behind Mrs. Sam Orrs U. S. Navy in a thrilling contest. Each carried an impost of 114 pounds on Saturday, the same poundage they are slated to tote tomorrow. For Royal Duke, it was his first outing in some time, while the Murlogg colt has been campaigned more regularly. Little Step was a length and a half ahead of his rival at the end of that race, but the improvement expected from Royal Duke tomorrow should bring them on closer together in the Danvers. The remainder of the three-year-old line-up consists of Crewhall, Marymigirl, Queens Taste, Dydamic, Mestiza and In Taste. With the exception of Dydamic, who is making his first local start, all of the Danvers field have appeared under silks locally and off their recent form, a thriller should be on tap. The longer of the features brings together Double M Farms Lambent, who deadheated with Abstract last Saturday in the Faneuil Hall Handicap, Anthony Ca-taldos Tilenny. Mrs. True Davis, Jr.s De Luxe, A. B. Christophers Curruhuinca, Ralph Lowes Regal, and J. Poulos Great Shuffle. That sextet represents many winning races in recent years. Tilenny and j Regal will probably overshadow their rivals should an "off" track prevail, but regardless - of the condition of the racing strip, not one of the contenders can be eliminated. Predictions from the local weather r bureau are for showers.
