Clockers Tab 200 Horses At Lincoln, Washington Future Romance, Mauverneen and Scrabble Drill for Miss America LINCOLN FIELDS, Crete, 111., June 8. Clockers reported the training moves of 152 horses over the "good" track at Lincoln Fields this morning. Probably an equal number were on the track at various times to indulge in nothing more strenuous than slow gallops. The latter, of course, received scant attention from Bill Cunningham and Charlie Billups, the men with the watches. Over at Washington Park, Johnnie Beech clocked 61 which worked or breezed. Among the 152 whose moves were worthy of note were several two-year-old fillies engaged in next Saturdays 5,000 Miss America Stakes. These included Emil Dene-marks good Illinois-bred Future Romance. The daughter of Futuramatic her sire is still in training breezed five-eighths in 1:05. Mauverneen, owned by Dr. R. C. Austin, of Dayton, Ohio, worked three-eighths handily in :36. Mrs. Thelma Otts Blue Vezzano and E. L. Friedbergs Scrabble .each stepped a half, the latter in :51, the former a bit faster in :51 flat. At Washington Park Fred W. Hoopers stakes winning filly, Fierce, breezed five-eighths in 1:02 in preparation for the Miss America. The daughter of Pry Fierceness, winner of three races, including the Gulfstream Juvenile Stakes, was accompanied by the five-year-old Olympic, but the filly outran her older English-bred stable-mate, which took a full second more to cover the distance. Olympic is a prospective candidate for the 0,000 Lincoln Handicap here on June 19. At Lincoln Fields, the good three-year-old filly Jenjay, owned by Lewis J. Tutt, of Lexington, Ky., breezed three-eighths in :36. Walmac Farms Hasseyampa made his first appearance since finishing second to Sea O Erin in the recent Peabody Memorial and breezed three furlongs in :37. H. G. Bockman, who has been bringing his Happy Go Lucky along slowly, let the brown stallion step five-eighths in 1:03. Happy Go Lucky is a nominee for the Lincoln Handicap. One who attracted considerable attention was the two-year-old colt, Beau Busher, who stepped a half in :48 at Washington Park. This son of Mr. Busher Late Date, brought here recently by trainer T. D. "Pinky" Grimes, was a sensation in California earlier in the year.
