Ida C. in First Start e Of Fairmount Meeting * Pruett Miss Is Dropping Down J In Class in Normandy Purse h By C. A. LINDEMAN Staff Correspondent FAIRMOUNT PARK, Collinsville, 111., June 3.— Seven top flight sprinters will match strides in the Normandy Purse, a six-furlong dash for three-year-olds and older which will serve as the feature for tomorrow ights card of eight events. This sprint affair brings out such speedsters as Ida C, InClass, Golden City, Leo P. McL., Danny G., Evidence and Mr. Dink. Making her first start of the meeting will be the good race mare Ida C. from the stable of Mrs. T. M. Pruett who will most likely rule the public choice at post time. This daughter of Ladysman or Roman and out of the good mare Crystal Maze, has turned in several good works since she was shipped here this spring .and comes here with two good races at the recent Sportsmans Park meeting. It is apparent that she has not as yet reached her peak form but taking her best race into consideration last year when she defeated such top sprinters as Delta Eagle and Flaming Bush in a six-furlong dash at Hawthorne last fall in the good time of 1:12% over a track labeled muddy she outclasses a field of this type. Ida C. has been running with a better class of sprinters than she is meeting tomorrow as her recent races show most of the time she runs where the claiming price is ,000 or better. Her best race of her last two runs at the Cicero half-mile oval was when she finished third to Best Doings and March Proudly in a ,000 claiming event at seven furlongs. Getting in the Normandy with a light impost of 106 she is bound to, be a real tough proposition. Coming back after a rather dull performance last time out here at Fairmount is In Class from the racing stable of C. J. Hohmer. In Class may have a good excuse as he was forced to race on the far outside the entire distance. The four-year-old son of War Dog comes to this meeting with a good record having been returned the winner of a seven-furlong dash at Sportsmans Park in the good time for a half mile oval of 1:30%. In Class drops three pounds off his last race here and with the benefit of a race here under his belt he may regain his best form. The Silver Creek Stables Danny G., appears to be the best of the remainder that will contest the issue in the feature. Danny G., showed a lot of early foot in his one and only start at this meeting and is bound to improve off the effort. Since that defeat Danny G., has turned in a good workout of :48 for a half mile in handy fashion. His stable regards him as a real threat in the Normany Purse event. Others who will test their speed in the main attraction are: Golden City which races in the interest of Mr. and Mrs. H. T. Triplett, Leo P. McL., owned by J. Hejna and who made a real showing for most of the trip in the Decoration Day Handicap; Evidence from the .stable of C. Milroy and Mr. Dink owned by E. H. Moody. Best ot the other seven races carded is the seventh event a route affair which brings together eight distance performers to battle it out over the mile and furlong distance. This band of routers which includes Nictor, Reminisce, May First, Bai-longo, Joggins, Mr. Choo Choo, Potentate II. and Leavenworth all race where the claiming price is ,250 or less.
