Dale Shaffers Colt Coming to Arlington for Primer Continued from Page One for Arlington Park late tomorrow after- i noon. Fiddle is engaged for the Primer Stakes and several other juvenile fixtures, while Sweet Patootie is expected to make her initial appearance at the northside Chicago track in the Polly anna Stakes. [ Jockey Johnson is to handle both the Shaffer youngsters in their important Arlington , engagements. j Fiddle left the stalls on top when starter John Morrissey effected a "line break" in the Old Glory, but Good Times went right , with the Shaffer colt, reaching the front | over the ultimate victor after three-sixteenths mile. During the run to the stretch, , the leading pair completely dominated the | running and, when Good Times chucked it , at the turn, Fiddle drew clear. Full Circle then came from third position to nip the faltering Good Times for place honors, while Roman Jean wound up three lengths I off the Buhl gelding, saving fourth money. Adler and Nanes* Athlete, aged son of Bold Irishman and Mountain Pass, who boasts a touch of class, raced to a popular decision in the mile and one -sixteenth third race under a well-judged ride from i the youthful apprentice Ray Spencer, i Athlete came from well back during the last quarter mile to nip Shangrila Stables 1 Miss Kazoo by a half length, while Ivan j D. Peats Atoka Lad earned third slightly more than a length farther back. J. S. Farros Glangolly finished fourth in a | field of eight ordinary middle distance platers contesting the race. Athlete, successful in five engagements last year, registered his second 1952 tri- j umph after stepping along in a creditable 1:47% and he was the 11 to 10 choice in i the speculation. I Hustling Lois Cook, who is in a hot contest with Tommy Barrow for riding honors at the current meeting, piloted D. R. Laughters Robins Blue to a surprising verdict over 10 other ordinary platers in the six furlongs opener. Robins Blue paid 3.00 after stepping to the final marker with a neck margin over S. Cabaniss hard-charg- ing The Farmer, who was but a nose before Mrs. M. J. Hoydics Little Zac, choice for j the sprint. Frank J. Grand, Sr.s Marse Robert, pacemaker until near the last six- | teenth pole, lasted to salvage fourth money. Robins Blue, a four-year-old daughter j of Kings Blue, completed the three-quar- t ters mile trip in 1:13. 3 Mrs. M. Holubeshens Dollys Image, a j homebred Okapi-sired mare, was a three j lengths victress in the six furlongs second race. Assuming command under Alfred j Popara soon after the break, the Holube- j shen representative stuck diligently to her x task and zipped to the wire with a three lengths margin on her nearest rival, L. J Wells favored Jean the Joker. C. F. Wagners Sherriff Hill was along in time to j take the show award while E. B. McAtees j Kibby F. turned in a good performance to j .save fourth in the field of a dozen starters. Dollys Image, who was making her in- j itial 1952 start, was clocked in l:122/5 and j she was held at 53 to 10 in the straight j wagering. Coupled in the Daily Double j with Robins Blue, she was good for a 93.80 pay-off in the special pool. j
