Today; Carters Oats Fancied; By J. SWEENEY GRANT Staff Correspondent AK-SAR-BEN, Omaha, Nebr.. June 16.— j Capacity fields dominate tomorrows program at this Omaha track as the meeting swings into the fifth week of its scheduled 35 -day session. Principal offering on the agenda is the mile and 70 yards. Flying Farmers Purse, which will bring together 18 better-than-average platers. As in the majority of the featured events presented thus far during the meeting the winner of the nominal attraction could come from any quarter and the selection of a definite favorite would indeed be a difficult task. , Several score of agriculturists from seven nearby states, who maintain air-j planes for either business or pleasure, arej expected to fly in from their respective residences and be in attendance for to- morrows card. The "Flying Farmers Club" has attracted considerable attention in the midwestern sector. Under the claiming conditions of the Flying Farmers Purse, Roy Hodges Reno Unique, H. L. Conleys Pass Count, and William S. Clines Carters Oats, will be asked to shoulder equal top burdens of 121 pounds. Reno Unique will answer the bugle under a five-pound lighter assessment in- eluding the usual allowance for apprentice William S. Clines Carters Oats will be mainder of the group are S. Marcellus [Nickel, Bud Rays Yuma Chief, John H. Nail, Jr.s Turnback, J. W. Coopers Apron Face, Mrs. Earl H. Beezleys Hermione, Roy Nelsons My Suzy Belle, Carter and Morris Free Me, W. F. Hodges Angel Fair, James Herndons Miss Fenelon, W. L. Bushs Bus Mar, Marion Petschs Legend- aire, A. L. Pettys Forth Term, R. M. Specks Carlas Pride, Conn Jordans Sioux Pawn, and, Harry Stehrs MLady Sweep. Several Have Won at Meet Several of the contemplated starters in the feature have scored one or more victories thus far during the meeting. Carters Oats has been the most consistent member of the group with two successes. He, however, is embedded in the third position on the "also eligible" list and it is doubtful that he will be fortunate enough to draw ihto the race. Hermione and Reno Unique defeated clever fields in their latest outings and both are certain to command major respect in the wagering. The former bested slightly superior rivals than did Reno Unique. Listed among Hermiones victims were Forth Term, Legendaire, and Apron Face, all of who again will face him to-j morrow. Bus Mar, member of the Flying Farmers field, finished second to Reno Unique in a route race on last weeks card. Nickel, who finished second in his last start after being impeded continuously during the late stages of his engagements, could easily atone for that setback. He has the necessary speed to cope with his rivals. Pass Count has never been better and the [stretch run that he uncorked to attain his latest victory would seem to suggest that he would prove difficult to down in future starts. Forth Term and Miss Fenelon must always be regarded dangerous when matched against thoroughbreds of the calibre of tomorrows entrants. Turn Back and Yuma Chief have been known to up-1 set calculations on occasion. Free Me has visited the local winners circle and appears to have maintained winning form. Several others including Angel Fair and Carlas Pride could surprise should they come forth with their best efforts.
