Oyster K. Likely Choice In Grove City at Ascot Meets Woodmore Again in Mile And Sixteenth Allowance Test By W. A. CRUSE Staff Correspondent ASCOT PARK, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, June 21. — Once again racing secretary B. ■ H. Held, has resorted to carding a substitute race in case one of the scheduled eight t races for Monday fails to hold up. However, ■ the smallest field of the original I group is the seventh which has eight drawn into it and they appear a group that can handle any sort of race track. • The substitute race on the other hand has J 16 drawn into it, and they are of the ,250 I claiming specie. The Grove City, an allowance test for four-year-olds and older horses at a one s mile and one-sixteenth mile setting, is the feature attraction. It is the seventh and i thus is the event with the lightest field. Mr. and Mrs. C. Rogers Oyster K. will j definitely find many friends in the wagering. The Oyster Bay gelding was a length victor over a similar group in the fifth race on June 13. F. J. Wilsons Woodmore was second to him in that race and is named again to match strides in this affair. " _ Time for the one and one-sixteenth miles was 1.47%, and while Oyster K. was s a length the best of Woodmore, the latter in turn was six lengths in front of Mrs. J. E. Coxs All for One. The competition for r the major portion of the ,000 purse will 1 undoubtedly rest between the two. Others in the field include Mr. and Mrs. ;. P. Maxwells Oklahoma Kid, J. Bogdans s Bubchas Boy, E. F. Lovelaces The Shacks, i, the Lick Run Stables Ah Oui, and E. D. i. McBrides Panadero. Bubchas Boy will be going postward the e first time in the interest of J. Bogdan as s he was claimed from T. McCarty In the e r 1 ;. s i, i. e s e third race last Friday. The Halcyon boy gelding turned in an extremely fine race to run second to Virginia McKenneys Scotsun. Although his rider, Jockey D. Pinks taff lodged a claim of foul against Craig who was up on Scotsun, it was not allowed. A bit more racing luck could help him considerably in this group, and the added distance could be well suited to a victory.
