Normrich Fancied Today In Beulah Park Offering Baby Might Looms Chief Rival Of Hicks Campaigner in Dash By HUGH J. McGUIRE Staff Correspondent BEULAH PARK, Grove City, Ohio, May 20.— The mid-week program arranged by racing secretary - Gene Bury is fairly well up to, standard although the intermittent downpours that visited the track have reduced the number of entrants in several of the contests. Despite this handicap, Bury was able to program three of the eight races at one mile or farther but the best field is assembled in the six furlongs of the seventh race which is titled the Blue Ribbon. In the headliner a limit field of 10 has been named with two additional horses on the "also •eligible" list. The race is fashioned for rivals carrying claiming tags of ,500 and here it may be that Normrich from the stable of Mr. and Mrs. J.. Hicks will find himself nicely placed. The son of Ambrose Light was unplaced in his latest outing here but was matched with ,300 opponents on that occasion and the competition in the Blue Ribbon might be more to his liking. - Mr. and Mrs. E. H. ODaniel will be represented by the hard-hitting Baby Might who finished a creditable second in heavy going at last asking. Obviously fit just now and facing the likelihood of racing over a track that will not be fast, Baby Might looms as the one to prove most troublesome. A. B. Corbins Mahamed was a surprise third when lightly regarded in his latest outing against ,500 opponents in muddy going and any improvement over that effort would find him .right at hand. Cousin Betty, from the stable of W. Alexander, was a recent winner here to attest present fitness but is stepping up a little in quality of competition. V. L. Guessfords Prewitt set the early pace in his latest outing but faltered and might last long enough to earn a portion of this purse.
