Give Pimlico Call To Singing Beauty Jack the Great and Penocc Entry Test Pistorio Filly In Armed Services Purse PIMLICO. Baltimore, Md., May 12.— Wednesday will be Armed Services Day at Pimlico as racing resumes at the Maryland Jockey Club following a "dark" day on Tuesday. Top offering on a well-balanced program will be the ,500 Armed Services Purse, which matches seven sprinters at the six-furlong distance. Heading the field is Mrs. Samuel M. Pistorios Singing Beauty, one of four shifty sprinters currently being conditioned by trainer J. Bowes Bond. This four-year-old daughter of The Rhymer will be seeking her initial 1953 victory, but she boasts a pair of good seconds in as many appearances. She finished in the place position behind Sweet Vermouth when beaten a nose in 1:11% at Bowie, then was shipped to Garden State, at which point she bowed by less than a length to Bobs Betty in 1:12% over a sloppy track. She is to enjoy the saddle services of Nick Shuk. who has enjoyed his usual success in Maryland this spring. Others Named for Feature Set to compete against Singing Beauty are the following: Walter A. Edgars Jack the Great and Mrs. Chester A. Lyons Penocc, who will race coupled as trainer Frank Bdnsals entry; George A. Sacks Rare Knave, H. W. Shaffers Avacado, Mrs. C. O. Schweitzers Radical and Mrs. F. J. Vollmers My Nell. Jack the Great has raced but twice this spring and Penocc just once, and neither has been able to earn brackets, though their efforts have been satisfactory. Jack the Great was recently four lengths behind Brazen Brat in 1:11% and prior to that was about the same distance in back of Dark Peter at Bowie in 1:11%. Penocc. who earned a portion of the purse in 20 of his 21 starts last year, launched his current campaign here last week and was fourth behind War Age over a sloppy track. Radical, My Nell and Avacado were also-rans in the race won by Brazen Brat last week, finishing fifth, sixth and seventh as named. Radical and My Nell were making their second starts of the year, while the effort was the first of the semester for Avacado. The latter, a daughter of Hampden, won five of 11 starts last year while campaigning largely on the minor track circuit. Rare Knave, a son of Knave High, has not raced since Bowie, where he was held scoreless but turned in a couple of promising efforts. In his last appearance he was less than five lengths behind Brook-fields Iswas when that fellow equaled the seven-furlong track record of 1:2345.
