JOSEPH EITINGER — Owner of Jet Master. ► — ; - Jet Master, Jampot and Three Others Go in Delaware Sprint Marlboro Farm Colt Coming* Off Second in Wilmington; Rival Was Choice in Jersey By PALMER HEAGERTY Staff Correspondent DELAWARE PARK, Stanton, Del., June 9.— Marlboro Stud Farms Jet Master tangles- with Max Kahlbaums Jampol and three other capable campaigners tomorrow afternoon in the featured Manor Purse. Others in this six-furlong speed trial are Mrs. Chester A. Lyons Penocc, Charles Rufis Admiral Cherry and Walter M. Jeffords Loyal Legion. Jet Master, while he hasnt attained his two-year-old form this season, still pos- sesses a world of speed, as evidenced by his | good second behind Tea-Maker in the opening day Wilmington Handicap. The Jet Pilot three-year-old boasts but a single victory in five starts this season, but his record is a satisfactory one, with the Wil-j mington his best effort. He figures to at-j tract the bulk of support in the Manor and j shapes up as the likely winner. He is eligible for the Leonard Richards here, but 1 must be regarded as a doubtful starter, in , view of the nine-furlong distance of that fixture. Probable Richards Candidate A probable starter in the Richards, as well as this Saturdays Kent, is Jampol; the Thumbs Up gelding who was one of i last years bargain claims at ,000. During his sophomore campaign he was second in a division of the Flamingo, the Chesapeake and the Preakness. He was a beaten choice in his most recent venture, finishing sixth behind King Jolie and others on a sloppy track in Garden States Jersey " Stakes. Admiral Cherry, like Jet Master and Jampol, is a three-year-old, which gives that age division a shade in the Manor. Admiral Cherry won his first two starts this year, then was unsuccessful in a bit better company in his next two starts. His most recent try was in the Dixiana Purse in Kentucky, in which he was a trailer behind Cold Command and Hill Gail. Prior to that he was about a length and a half behind Sub Fleet at six furlongs. Periocc still seeks a victory after four starts this year, all of which saw him racing commendably. He was twice second and twice third finishing in the latter spot behind Two Rainbows and Puppet just the other day over a good track. His good early speed may find him in the thick of contention for at least the early stages of the Manor. Loyal Legion, a Halcyon eight-year-old, has fared poorly in two starts this season, trailing in a Laurel race and finishing 12 lengths behind Senator Joe here last week. He raced only five times last year, all of them over this track. He won three of those engagements and, if able to return to that form, he could surprise.
