— — . T Titien II. Seeks His Second Triumph in Amaganselt Hurdle ; t French-Bred Asked to Carry , 162 Pounds to Stunts 149 And 142 for Silver Bridge AQUEDUCT, L. I., N. Y., June 27. — Jumpers occupy the Aqueduct spotlight tomorrow, eight hurdlers having been named for the eighth running of the ,500 Ama-gansett at about a mile and three-quarters. 5. This test is named for the crack steeplechaser who raced for the late Thomas Hitchcock and for Rigan McKinney in the early 1930s. Tomorrows field is headed by A. Edward Masters Titien II., a French h h five-year-old who is probably the most versatile - jumper of recent years and who will 11 probably be the favorite despite his impost st of 162 pounds, 14 more than he carried d successfully last year. Titien n. broke his own hurdle record at it tomorrows distance with 158 pounds up at it Belmont Park on June 4. The son of Tornado "- then was schooled once over the big fences and with that brief preparation sent it out for the Meadow Brook Steeplechase ie Handicap at about two and a half miles -s and scored rather cleverly over an experienced i- field. Titien H. has also won on the te flat in allowance company, both on grass s and skinned courses. The familiar Albert rt Foot is expected to ride, unless an engagement at Delaware Park makes him unavailable. I- Trainer Ramon Bueno said a couple le of days ago that Titien II. would only start ft in the Amagansett if the track was at its best. The infield course is soft at this writing. b- Hyvania Coupled With Stunts The French star will be oposed by Mrs. S; Ogden Phipps Look Around, G. H. "Pete" ;" Bostwicks Stunts and Mrs. Bostwicks s Hyvania, who will race as an entry; San-ford 1_ Stud Farms Fulton, Sanset Farms Silver Bridge, Margaret S. Kirkpatricks ■ New Rule and W. B. Cocks Swiggle. ■ Stunts, who has 149 pounds to carry to-| 3~ morrow, was a beaten favorite here last st week, almost pulling Jim Smileys arms out ., of their sockets for a mile while racing lS very rank, then bobbling badly and finishing far behind Fulton and Hyvania. If he le l has steadied down a little, Stunts has the le C speed to win this race. The former handi-g i- cap star on the flat won his only other race ;e - over the hurdles with ease, o Hyvania has also won over the hurdles, !S- 3- but was beaten five lengths by Fulton at d level weights last week and without appar- r" - ent excuse. He gets seven pounds tomorrow, w e, which should bring them a bit closer at the le finish. U Look Around, the third member of the ie d Bostwick-trained entry, is a 10-year-old Id with brilliant races in his past, but was a a - soundly beaten fifth in the Mandingham m - Handicap on June 18, finishing almost five ve. y lengths back of Hyvania, who was himself :" i- third behind Jam and Quiet. Swiggle, Sil-k ver Bridge and New Rule finished seventh, n ?1 eighth and ninth in this race, the latter e two tiring after a mile of the mile and 10- il three-quarters. it _ , ... _ / IS Sophomores in Pierette Purse g The Amagansett will be the fifth event n* ;s on the eight-race program and is followed by the Pierette Purse for three-year-old is fillies at six furlongs.
