Dandy G. Out for Repeat Score in Fairmount Dash Barbie B. Likely to Provide Silver Creek Ace With Most Opposition By C. A. UNDEMAN Staff Correspondent FAIRMOUNT PARK, Collinsville, 11*.., June 15.— Racing secretary Jack Klucina has again assembled an outstanding weekday card of nine races to start off the fourth full week of racing here at the Fairmount Park tomorrow night. Headlining the card will be the Signal Hill Purse, a six-furlong dash for three-year-olds and older horses that normally race where the price tag is ,500. Dandy G., who carried the silks of the Silver Creek Farm to an impressive win last out here when he romped home an easy victor by five lengths in 1:11 for the six furlongs, rates a slight edge here. Dandy G. is blessed with plenty of early foot and his opposition of six sprinters will have to do some running to catch him. The Silver Creek sprinter opened up by four lengths in the first quarter in his last winning effort and widened as he pleased. His weight for this test will be 117, four over that which he carried when he turned back Changeaway and Boutonniere. Offering the most opposition to Dandy G. in all probability will be A. P. Hensleys Barbie B.f also a winner last time out over this racing strip. Barbie B. is also known as a fast breaker. His last race shows him well in front of his field from start to finish with a length and three-quarters margin left at the finish over Irish Wit and Taos Cross. The six furlongs were run in 1:11%, with Barbie B. having 106 pounds up. In the Signal Hill, Barbie B. will only pick up one additional pound. Fancy Food, racing in the interests of D. H. McLean, showed, good early foot in his last out here in a six-furlong sprint against some of the better short distance runners and finished third. Although not too close up, he still turned in a good effort. The race was run in 1:11 with Harry-Lou the winner. The McLean sprinter drops seven pounds off that defeat and with 110 up for this race he should fare well. " The field, for the Signal Hill is completed by Ky. Beauty, owned by T. McCarty; Double Barrel, from the stable of Mrs. C. Greene, Boutonniere, owned by H. H. Haag and the newcomer to the Fairmount Park races, Sutters Luck, winner of two races at the Fort Miami track last May from the stable of H. "W. Kennedy.
