« ♦ Fourteen in Wayne At Detroit Today Field of Mature Sprinters Includes Nice Tint, Byronic Evelyn L, Winners Last Out DETROIT, Mich., June 7. — The current Michigan racing season continues to show increased attendance and mutuel figures over those of last year and the sport will go into its fifteenth day Monday at this modern Detroit race course. The best attraction on the eight race program is the Wayne, sixth event on the card which will match a capacity field of sprinters, four-year-olds and older, at six furlongs. Included in the list of 14 entrants for the Wayne are three recent visitors to the local winners ring; Pollard and Harkins Nice Tint, Shangrila Stables Byronic, and Greenacres Stock Farms Evelyn L. Henry Forrest, popular Kentucky turfman and presently the nations leading trainer, will saddle Nice Tint and Evelyn L. for their Wayne engagements. Byronic, a five-year-old daughter of Boss Hoss, will, of course, be sent postward by C. P. Sowers, who has so successfully handled the thoroughbreds in Leon Slavins Shangrila unit. Andrews and Zakoors The Peer and Jerry Lynchs Andy Handy also scored over fair fields of sprinters during their current MRA campaigns and they are expected to go well in the Wayne. Others named for the Monday headliner are Adler and Zakoors Homing Pigeon, John Harts Convicted, Myron Smiths Royce, Bernice Irvins Diamond Lane, and D. R. Laughters Little Danny. Also G. Zakoors Broad Cross, who will race coupled with The Peer; F. E. Arnolds Mister Perfect, Arthur Roses Mival, and Mrs. J. H. Woodcocks Ohio-owned speedy Sir Walter R. Won Divisions of Alpena Byronic and Evelyn L. earned their recent triumphs in divisions of the Alpena Purse, the former mare stepping three-quarters mile in 1:11% to whip Little Xs, Duke Boswell, The Peer and Rose Bed, among .others. Evelyn Li was clocked in 1 : 12, the five-year-old Half Crown-sired mare defeating Diamond Lane, Little Danny, Andy Handy, Mival, Convicted, Homing Pigeon and others of that class to annex her section of the Alpena Purse. Although the Wayne is undoubtedly the most interesting race on the Monday bill, racing secretary Charles McLennan arranged several other supporting numbers that possess promise of good sport. Two-year-olds are slated to meet in the five-eighths mile second and the G and G Stables Alie-Ed, Torrance C. Melroses Cattaragus, and E. K. Thomas Triple Flight appear well placed in the juvenile dash, which is to bring together a full field of youngsters. Three-year-olds are to meet in three-quarters mile fifth and the one mile eighth while the fourth at one mile and 70 yards will bring together seven useful middle distance performers. E. H. Moodys fashionably-bred Riot is the overnight choice for the latter offering and he will clash with the Jerry McCarthy and J. Adler entry, Mattie Giri and Carambra, also Aim, Hot Chocolate, Bimover and Storm Ridden.
