Seven Oppose War Bam in Berkshire If jSignal Code Chief Foe of Bonner Colt Futurity Eligibies Hudgens, War Antique, Trenton Sand, Calicut in Allowance Event ARLINGTON PARK, Arlington Heights. * 111., June 27. — Sprinters carrying claiming . tags of ,000 provide the best offering on the off-day program at this course tomor-! row as the handicap and stakes stars re-! main on the sidelines in preparation for : engagements later in the week. Two-year-1 olds running five and a half furlongs under j allowance conditions meet in the Sarajevo Purse as the best of the supporting ! races. Eight fair older sprinters are named for the feature, titled the Berkshire. Mrs. H. P. ! Bonners hard-hitting four-year-old, Mr. j Bam, may carry the bulk of public support j in the headliner on the strength of his tally at this course last Saturday. He is a [ rather consistent sort with five victories to his credit last year, and he finished | close up on several other occasions. He is 5 stepping up a little in claiming price class. 1 but is right on edge just now and should " give a good account of himself. r Adams to Ride J The stiffest sort of competition can be 1 expected from J. P. Keezeks Signal Code. His recent races have been quite good and he will have the saddle services of Johnny Jf Adams. He may find this distance to his liking and the competition within the * scope of his top effort. Mrs. S. Smiths J Wellsab is the lightweight of the field - under 103 pounds and may make his presence felt. Others in the field are E. B. Carpenters Bashful Sun, Valley View Farms Haberdashery, May Well Acres Unique Reward, Paul Kelleys Master Mind, and Reverie Knoll Farms Mahplay. The Sarajevo is confined to colts and geldings and in the group of seven are four who have been named to the Arlington and Washington futurities although they cannot be rated with the leading contenders for those features. The four are Reverie Knolls War Antique, Mrs. Emil Denemarks Hudgens, Louis L. Haggins Calicut, and Mrs. C. W. Jones Trenton Sand. Hudgens should show to advantage over his rivals in the Sarajevo. This youngster was an ,000 purchase at the Keeneland yearling sales and he has done a great deal to justify his selection. A return to his best races would find him leading home these rivals. War Antique, winner of his s latest venture by a narrow margin, is obviously fit and should make his presence jj felt against this type of competition. ■ Glance, from the stable of Mrs. Jake ° Lowenstein, was graduated from the ranks 0 of the non-winners in his latest outing a and must be accorded a chance to give a r good account of himself again. •• Commanding some attention in the dash * is Brown Hotels Old Fiddle, whose third J? at last asking compels consideration for s his chances here.
