Nine Three-Year-Olds In Suffolk Turf Event Double Header II., Go Go Go And Seven Others Match Speed-By AVERY BROWN Staff Correspondent SUFFOLK DOWNS, East Boston. Mass., May 12. — Clear weather for the past four days has been just what the doctor ordered to put the turf course here at Suffolk Downs in tip-top condition and tomorrows feature will be run on the grass. Styled exclusively for three-year-olds, the ,000 allowance test at about a mile has been named the Algonquin. Nine mediocre soph-mores have been named overnight to contest, with E. A. Simpsons Sun Jeep and Henry Forrests Triumphant equally weighted at 120 pounds. The Algonquin should prove very interesting particularly because none of the contestants have ever performed over the grass course. Probably one of the three-year-olds, Green Dunes Farms Double Header n.. will be closely observed because of his English ancestory. A strapping colt by Big Game, imported from England, Double Header n. showed his best effort over a soft track at Bowie this past spring and that may serve as a warning as to his ability on the grass. Go Go Go, Montenegrin, Brooketta, Time for Speed, Four Night, and On Speck are the others in the Algonquin. The majority of the field have performed successfully on the main course either here or at other eastern tracks earlier this season. Supporting the grass feature will be a pair of allowance events listed as the fifth and eighth races. In the fifth, named the Brae Burn Purse, a full compliment of a dozen three-year-olds, plus two on the also eligible list, has been named to meet at six furlongs. The eighth race is to be called the Pine Brook Purse, completing the honoring of a trio of golf courses for which the races have been named, and that event is also for sophomores at six furlongs with eight slated to vie. Sandwiched in between the first sophomore feature and the grass race will be a high-priced claimer for older horses with such sprinters as In Taste, Seaflash, Happy Bound, Eabani, Special Nurse and Hadnt Orter entered. The four races mentioned loom as wide open affairs and should provide interesting contests for the mid-week patrons.
