Kings Hope Given Call for Cheboygan Carries 105 Pounds Today at Detroit While Vying With Bully Boy, Seven Others By DON FAIR Staff Correspondent DETROIT, Mich., June 29.— Mrs. Frederick Sharpes Kings Hope, crack three-year-old son of King Cole and Solita, heads a field of nine shifty thoroughbreds scheduled to clash here tomorrow in the six-furlong Cheboygan Purse, top attraction on an unusually strong nine-race half -holiday program. The Sharpe colt, victor in six stakes during his juvenile campaign, gets in the Cheboygan with 105 pounds, including the apprentice allowance for young Gerald Champagne. Kings Hope has raced smartly in his local engagements, finishing second to Carl Grahams Fancy Flyer in the recently decided mile and one-sixteenth Hamtramck Purse and beat the Graham stallion a neck in the Michigan Mile on June 9. Theodore D. Buhls Bee Lee Tee, third in the latter offering, will try Kings Hope again tomorrow and he will shoulder 114 pounds in the headline sprint. White to Saddle Entry Henry Forrest will send Traveler, 109, and Old Tom, 109, postward in the Cheboygan and the Grace Kosiba Stable is to rely on Is There, 105 pounds; Mrs. Otto C. Neumanns The Farm silks are to be carried in the dash by the hard-hitting Bully Boy, 117, and Mr. and Mrs. Joe Gunther, of New Orleans, are placing their hopes on Tiger Matt, 104 pounds and the only other member of the three-year-old division Continued on Page Six Kings Hope Given Call For Detroits Cheboygan Lightly Imposted While Meeting Bully Boy, Traveler, Six Others Continued from Page One slated to start. George C. White, prominent Tennessee turfman, is to saddle Mrs. George Shwab, Jr.s Vixen Rose, 109, and Mrs. Whites Dixie Flyer, pegged at 100 pounds, for their engagements in the Cheboygan. While Kings Hope presently rules a staunch favorite, the Sharpe star will have to be at his best to turn back Bully Boy, Bee Lee Tee, and the two members of the Forrest entry, Traveler and Old Tom. Bee Lee Tee is to have the saddle services of the capable Chuck Headley, Darrell Madden will be astride Bully Boy while youthful Sherman Armstrong and apprentice Johnny Phillips may draw mounts on the Forrest entrants. Bully Boy is a triple winner at the current meeting. The Farm representative beat a shifty field in his last local appearance, downing Old Tom by a nose margin at the end of the three-quarters mile Copper and Brass Purse. Previous to that conquest, Bully Boy annexed the Anniversary Handicap and the Sault Ste. Marie Purse. Bee Lee Tee, a visitor to the winners circle in Hialeah during his winter campaign, turned in an unusually sharp per formance here on May 30 in capturing the Col. F. M. Alger Memorial Purse, stepping that three-quarters mile in 1:11% and turning back Suffki, Traveler, Bully Boy, and Our Request, among others. The Buhl gelding has been a keen contender in all of his Motor City outings and he is quite capable of handling his Cheboygan burden. Although Traveler was beaten in the Alger, the Forrest star rates a splendid chance for major honors in the Saturday feature. Traveler also was the impressive victor in two Oaklawn Park six -fur long allowance events, skipping the distance on both occasions in a commendable 1:10 to establish a new track record in the Paramount Purse and then equal it in the Marquette Purse. In his initial triumph at the Hot Springs course, Traveler turned back such classy rivals as Cacamo, Bullish and Mr. Dink, among others. Chief supporting number is the six-furlong Royal Oak Claiming Purse for which 10 three-year-olds are entered. Miss Can-dace B. Shaffer, daughter of the Michigan Racing Association president, is to be represented in the secondary attraction by Blue Point, who will be ridden by jockey Madden. Mrs. White will send out Flashy Kay while the Forrest and Terrell Brothers entry, Inky Racer and Cajac, also holds a strong chance. Others in the Royal Oak are Jacob Shers Our Yonkela, William Zakoors Impeller, Andrews and Zakoors Ar-pege, Kosiba Stables Skyraiding, Mrs. H. Rahaims Abes Choice, and Ivan D. Peats locally-owned Money Lender, who has been showing improved form.
