Expect Chasers at Delaware DELAWARE PARK, Del., June 5. The close of Belmont Park on Saturday, June 12, will see the start of heavy thoroughbred shipments from the Long Island course to Delaware Park. The majority of the invaders will be made up of the steeplechase brigade, with four stakes events here as the chief lures. The infield sport gets under way on June 21 when the 0,000 added Tom Roby Stakes will be renewed. A schedule of overnight jumping races also is in prospect, governed more or less by the owners response to the daily tests. In previous seasons many of the overnight steeplechase tests were cancelled due to the lack of entries and on numerous occasions the stakes numbers were permitted to go post-ward with small fields parading postward.
