Judge of the. show will be the famous trainer, Preston Burch, while Nelson Dunstan will again be back as honorary steward. Dr. J. M. Lees reports the arrival at his Solar Farm of three-quarter sister to Spartan Valor. The filly is by Attention, out of the Oaks winner Flying Lil, who is a half-sister to Arisbi. . . Amory L. Haskell, president of Monmouth Park and the United Hunts, flew to Chicago today where he will serve as honorary steward tomorrow for the third running of the Arlington Hurdle Purse, the lone jumping event of the season at the Chicago track. The Hurdle Purse winds up the Midwest Hunt circuit for the season. Haskell will be met at the Airport in the Windy City by Frank Warton of the Illinois Racing Board. . .During the first nine days .of the meeting, the combination of 2 and 4 won the Double three times, all of which makes clerk of scales Al Bonagura a little downhearted. His license plate is number 24, but he has eschewed betting for some time. Have just received the program for the recent New England Turf Writers Dinner last week-end at Suffolk Downs from Gerry Sullivan, president of the outfit. Patterned after a track program, it contains the list of many New England racing figures, with some highly amusing comments on the breeding, age, color, owner and trainer lines, all of which are apt descriptions* of each person. The old saw about imitation being the sincerest form of flattery is proved again, for a number of organizations here requested a copy of the program, planning to adopt it for their affairs. Dont write to me for copies, ask Gerry Sullivan at Suffolk Downs. The Skeeter Club made their annual junket to the track yesterday and were entertained at a buffet luncheon in the parterre section before the races. . .Mrs. Frank Ortell, wife of the turf writer, and Mrs. Donna Kratz, partner in the Crowley-Jones Camera Company, made their annual visit. . .Young Robert Levy will send his Shevlin Stakes winner, Hueso, to Arlington Park for the Warren Wright Stakes next week and will bring the colt back here for the Lamplighter of July 11. Jack Rae, assistant to trainer Bill Mitchell of the J. L. McKnight stable, reports that his stepson, Ralph Long, won the and the Consolation Derby with Mello Jean. Both Mitchell and Rae came to the thoroughbred sport from the Greyhound ranks and last year, Mitchell was the leading trainee on the New Jersey Circuit. . .Bull, the seven-year-old son of Bull Dog — Gino Patty, who was barred from racing because of his savagery, was destroyed at J. L. Mc-Knights Wayside, N. J., farm. The horse savaged Four Notrump last week, and a couple of years ago bit an outrider severely in the post parade. Although he was a stud, McKnight decided to have him destroyed rather than sell him, in which case he might have wound up racing at some small track and continue his brutal ways. Halliwell Hobbs, the veteran thespian who is a regular at the New York tracks, made his first visit to Monmouth. He convulsed the waiters in the dining room when one of them remarked to him that "Stevens food was the best in the world, next to my mother-in-laws." Whereupon the very British Mr. Hobbs, turned to his companions and in Oxfordian tones said: "Dig that crazy waiter." . . . Chris Wood, Continued on Page Forty-Three Monmouth Memos By FRED GALIANI Continued from Page Five Jr., director of hurdle racing, will be at Delaware Park tomorrow for the Georgetown Steeplechase Handicap, where he, will contact owners and trainers of hurdle horses concerning plans to race their charges at Monmouth when the jump season; opens on July 14. There are two stakes f or the hurdlers, the Midsummer and the. National Maiden.. . .Nate Gladstone, a member of secretary John Turners staff, left for Cleveland to attend the funeral of his aunt, Mrs. Sarah Yoselo-vitz, 82, who died yesterday. Gladstone and five brothers and sisters were raised by Mrs. Yoselovitz after their mother died. Nate will be back at his job- here Saturday. Sam Lewin, manager of the Carolyn K Stable, who is more familiarly known as "The Genuis," came up with a good one in the stables Bit o Whiz yesterday, which paid 3.20. Sam, the Memphis Engleberg of New Jersey, is a top-flight handicapper and his figures are sought by many a horse player, but a lot of them wouldnt take his rating on Bit o Whiz, much to their regret. Lewin, who deserted a law career for action on the turf, has built the Carolyn K Stable into one of the top outfits on the circuit and his claims of horses like Hi Billee and The Eagle, both of whom earned plenty of checks, were a few of his most recent astute moves. His fame has even spread to England, where turf writer Clive Graham, who met him at Laurel last year for the International, mentions him in his English racing column.
