Pollard and Harkins Filly Won ♦ [ Eight ■ Times During ■ Thirteen Starts Last Year as Juvenile DETROIT, Mich., June 21.— The Mich-igan Racing Associations currently suc-,n cessful 1952 season is approaching the i half-way mark with attendance and totali-it satoj figures showing a decided increase ! over those for a corresponding period last year. President E. E. Dale Shaffer, execute five vice-president George Haggarty, and 1 general manager Robert Leavitt are unanimous in the opinion that the last half of ■ the 56-day Detroit race course meeting will J produce good sport and that crowds and 1 attendant mutuel play will continue to 1 show a marked uptrend. The Monday program at the local racing grounds will be headlined by the six-furlong Saginaw Purse and seven speedy three-W * year-olds are scheduled to meet in the 5 sprint. Henry Forrest will saddle an entry T for the headliner, namely, Pollard and Haras kins Ever Bright, 117, and his own Culler-;n " ton, 114 pounds. Others named for the i dash are Grace Kosibas Happy Omen, 105; R. A. Paracheks Thistle War, 110; Marion I H. VanBergs McGrathiana, 119; Mrs. Do-a0 lores Sukundos Night Again, 105, and Mrs. George C. Whites Little Donor, 110 pounds. : The Saginaw undoubtedly will develop into an unusually interesting sprint offering and the early choice for the Monday attraction is the Forrest-conditioned entry. Ever Bright, a handsome daughter of Sun Again and Still Blue, by Blue Larkspur, was victorious in eight of 13 engagements 5 during her juvenile campaign, registering I triumphs in the Jeanne dArc Stakes and the James H. Connor Memorial Stakes. Although she failed to display her best I form thus far this year, her recent works s are such that the Pollard and Harkins miss s rates a royal chance to visit the winners s ring after her Saginaw effort. While Ever Bright appears the best of the Forrest-conditioned representatives, Cullerton, a gelded son of Sun Again and i Blue Velvet, is a noted "off" track racer r and he may take some beating should the e footing be off Monday for the Saginaw. • Cullertons best performance here thus far r was a sharp second to In A Spin on May y 24 in the one mile Livonia Purse, which a was contested on a heavy track. Such useful - performers as Wisenheimer, Our Re-| - quest, Gay Hunter and Miss Bobbin were e in the band following In A Spin and Cul-% - lerton home in the Livonia. Happy Omen, who raced fairly well in a. Florida, is to make his local seasonal debut t in the Saginaw; McGrathiana, victor in a four 1951 outings, will be trying for his s initial success this year in the Monday y sprint, while Thistle War rates an out- - side chance should he race to top form. Little Donor has shown improvement in a recent trials and Night Again, a Sun n Again-sired filly, hasnt been out since e May 9 on which day she took a thorough h trimming in a six and one-half furlongs ;s overnight event at Churchill Downs. Perhaps the best supporting number on n the Monday bill is the five furlongs fourth in which 13 youngsters are slated to meet. t. _ ; e ] y J - i i - i k ! s d . F. f.

Sweet Reward, Sgt. Abe and Sun Idol Boy look good in the third; Andy Joe, Buss Up and Lilac are expected to go well in the seventh, while Balmoral, Well Met and Tramore Bay appear well-placed the Monday finale.
