Spinning Top Vies With Six in Naiad Surprise Winner of Pimlicos Black-Eyed Susan Concedes Rivals of Her Sex Weight AQUEDUCT, L. I., N. Y„ June 25.— A fsix-furlong dash for three-year-old fillies, styled the Naiad Purse, is the feature attraction on tomorrows off-day program at-Aqueduct. John S. Phipps* Spinning Top, surprise winner of the Black-Eyed Susan rStakes at Pimlico, is the topweight in this dash with 120 pounds, most of which will be Bennie Green, and she may be the pub-elic choice. However, Belair Studs La Perouse, who beat Spinning Top three and ,a half lengths in an earlier dash at Belmont Park when conceding four pounds, is * fin tomorrows race with 115. La Perouse came back with a bad race, but was pitted against good colts at a mile and a sixteenth, and that effort can probably be disregarded. Jess Higley will ride. t Jim Fitzsimmons is also saddling Ogden Phipps His Duchess in this dash, and that filly has drawn the number 1 stall and Ted 1 Atkinson may be able to break her on the lead and go on to an upset triumph. Countess Jane on Comeback Trail Leroy Hetzels Countess Jane, who won f the Rosedale and Fashion Stakes last year, is slated to start a comeback in the Naiad -after a long spell on the sidelines. The Count Fleet filly has been training cleverly aand was at her best when fresh last season. Bill Boland will ride at 115 pounds. The Naiaid field is completed by T. F. Whites Miss Weesie, 120; Patrick Torinos Bethsabe and Ben F. Whitakers Tiny Request, 115 pounds each. Miss Weesie appears to have lost her from, following a series of sparkling races with a dull effort vat Belmont Park and another at "Mammoth." Bethsabe comes from a winning ace, but was carrying a ,000 claiming tag for a mile and a furlong, andhardly seems well placed here. Tiny Request has been on the sidelines since May 2, when she finished unplaced at Jamaica. The oddity of optional claiming races, •which have made their appearance here this season, is pointed up by the seventh race tomorrow. This is a conventional claimer and Stephen Messanas Hoplite doesnt appear too badly placed in it with *a 0,000 tag. This same veteran comes from two winning races in optional claim- ers in which he was permitted to- run against ,500 competition with no risk of being haltered at the cost of a mere thre- * pound penalty.
