REFLECTIONS By NELSON DUNSTAN Continued from Page Fifty-Two old fillies in July, he may decide to take e a chance against the colts at Pawtucket. A A A — Just when it looked as if the two-year-olds - were shaping their division, Jet Master r met defeat and on Wednesday Cigar Maid was out of the money in the Astoria Stakes, i, a five-horse race that was won by the e Brae Burn Farms Star-Enfin, a hardhitting filly by the young stallion, Star r Pilot. It has been noticeable this year that t owners of promising two-year-old colts and i fillies have been reluctant to enter them i in early stakes, especially in New York. :. Tomorrow the Hyde Park Stakes for members - of this division at Arlington Park, :, near Chicago, will be run, and on Monday 7 Delaware Park will stage the Dover Stakes, ;, which is for two-year-olds at five and a half furlongs. With Jet Master on the sidelines, - this event will probably attract The e Pimpernel and Pintor, the latter being the e youngster who scored over Jet Master in i the Tremont Stakes at Aqueduct. While e the Hyde Park in the West and the Dover r in the East should bring some clarification l in the juvenile ranks, it is this writers s opinion that racing has yet to see the best t members of the baby ranks in action. By Y the time the Hopeful Stakes rolls around i in the fall, the two-year-old division probably - win have taken on an entirely new v complexion.
