Carrswold Purse Engages Six Routers at Fairmount Lancaster Lady Accorded Edge Over King Bebe on Off Track By C. A. LINDEMAN Staff Correspondent FAIRMOUNT PARK, Collinsville, Ill-June 8. Middle distance horses will vie in the Wednesday night featured event, the Carrswold Purse, which brings together a small but well matched field of second flight allowance runners at a mile and one-sixteenth for a ,600 purse. Although only six routers are slated to contest the issue this race should provide a battle the entire distance. Coming back from a game effort against the best route runners of the meeting is Lady Lancaster who, although she didnt finish in the first four was a real serious threat in the early stages of the Memorial Day Handicap. This game five-year-old daughter of Quick Reward carried the silks of her owner W. Tabbytite to an impressive victory the week previous to her defeat to win the Highland Purse at a mile and one-sixteenth against horses of her own class. In that winning effort she took command after the first half and being best lasted to hold a length and one-half margin over her closest rival Galway Boy over a slow racing strip. With the recent rains she will in all probability again race over an "off track tomorrow night. King Bebe, from the stable of H. H. Rendleman -who finished fourth in his latest outing here in the Memorial Day Handicap, looms as the second top threat in the Carrswold event. This three-year-old son of Prince Sador has been racing against the best here at this meeting and is the winner of a three-quarters sprint earlier in the meeting. King Bebe comes from behind in most of his races and at tomorrows distance of a mile and one-sixteenth may prove a decisive factor. Mrs. Sam Orrs Dr. Rees is making his first start since the Memorial Day Handicap and taking his best races into consideration he has to be given a good chance at part of the ,600 purse offered in the main event. The Orr five year-old horse will have the tracks leading rider Tommy Osment in the saddle which should move him up somewhat. Making up the rest of the field in the Carrswold are Spicy Belle, Castle Bell TT -1 TD Activity at both the new track Cahokia Downs and here at Fairmount was high over the week end with many stables checking in for the long summer season of racing which between the two tracks embraces 130 nights.
