MURPHY ARLINGTON PARK, Arlington Heights, 111., June 16. — The St. Charles Purse, an allowance race at six furlongs, will be featured here tomorrow with a field of 10 scheduled to go to the post. Mon-Pharo is topweighted in the affair with 115 pounds and the others, with the exception of Joe Graves only horse in the field with the apprentice allowance and Two Rainbows, all have 113. Two Rainbows, to be ridden by Eddie Arcaro, will have 112. and Joe Graves 110. Several of the St. Charles contestants were starters during the recent Lincoln Fields meeting, among them being Steak Bone, Screemin Jack, Dr. Ole Nelson and Joe Graves. The latter was beaten off in the Edward J. Fleming Memorial Handicap, while Dr. Ole Nelson was also badly trimmed when performing in slightly better company. Screeming Jack had good early speed in his last venture. Steak Bone could be the one to beat in the event. The son of Bull Dog, who is owned by John McShane, made his first start in some time in his prior outing and put up a valiant battle until the final stages of the race. That was a six-furlong dash known as the Sir Barton Purse, and Bloody Step was the winner, with Roman Bath finishing second. Steak Bone landed home in advance of such as Air Mail. Flya-. manita and Can Locate. Ran Fourth in Narcissus Dr. Ole Nelsons best was a fourth to Ruhe, Seaward and Andy B. W. in the Narcissus Handicap. Mon-Pharo was made favorite in his initial start at the Lincoln meeting, which was in the Flat Iron Purse, and he finished last in an eight-horse field, Cacomo being the winner. Screemin Jack was fourth in the same race. Making his first start of the current sea- son in the St. Charles will be Sabaean. who was winner of six races last year. The five- year-old gelding has started but once this year, being second to Light Broom at New Orleans Fair Grounds. Valquest finished second in his lone outing at Garden State. which was his first outing since the fall of 1950. Two Rainbows is another in from the East, the Brookmeade Stable filly having won her last out at Delaware Park. The latter earlier beat such as Penocc and Adopt at Pimlico. Others in the field are Nightmarish and Winning Fleet. The latter ran a few good races last year. A couple of other races on the bill are a trifle above the ordinary. They are the Geneva, a six-furlong allowance dash for three-year-olds, over the turf course, which will be run as the closing number. Elaine Ruth, withdrawn from Mondays Cleopatra Stakes, will be one of the starters in the Geneva, while British Isles, winner of a couple of turf races at Hawthorne, will be in the grass number. Wednesdays top line attraction will be the 5,000 added Primer Stakes, for two-year-olds at five and one-half furlongs. Over 40 have been nominated and a large field is expected. - % p J l , t , 1 i I ■ 1 [ , • ,
