Tom Powell, Houston, Texas, racing enthusiast, suffered quite a blow when his good two-year-old, Mister Carter, was destroyed at Washington Park this morning. The colt, a son of Destino Carter Girl, by Plowshare, suffered a broken left front sessamoid while working over the Homewood course the cl :er morning and was humanely destroyed by Dr. Albert Galen. Mister Carter was bred bj Mr. and Mrs.Powell and seemed to have a promising future. He won his J very first race, which was a maiden affair, at the Fair Course, New I Orleans, January 2, then came back with a fourth in the Dun- J can. Kenner Stakes, which was taken by i Spanish Charge, a running mate. He then ; finished third in the Hialeah Juvenile and, j shipped to Kentucky, took a purse race at Keeneland. Mister Carter made an auspicious debut here in winning a division of the Joliet Stakes and at the time of his accident was pointing for the juvenile added money races at the coming Arlington Park meeting. The colt was insured. AAA Harry Trotsek, the travelling trainer, will likely remain in the Chicago area for a few days at least. He has given Logan "Pee-Wee" Fisher a leave of absence to visit his home in Louisville, and has Ruhe and Sea O Erin and Mister Black among his most likely starters in Saturdays Lincoln Handicap. Trotsek trains the trio for Hasty House Farm. It is probable that Johnny Adams, the stable rider, will be aboard Mister Black in the 0,000 race and that Job Jessop will have the mount on Ruhe, and that Benny Green will come in from the East to ride Sea O Erin. Green, in his only previous appearance here this season, rode Pomace to victory for Hasty House in the La Salle Handicap. AAA A merry battle is being carried on for the jockey honors here.

AAA Two years ago high hopes wereheld for two runners who were unplaced in a maiden race here Tuesday. They are Prince Mike, a son of the great race mare, Twilight Tear, and Our Love, a filly who brought 6,000 at the Keeneland yearling sales. Prince Mike, in his first appearance as a two-year-old, carried the silks of Calumet Stable, but they soon culled him out. He is a good looking fellow and well bred, but does not seem capable of doing much running. The winner of the race was Ridge-fleet, who was a ,000 yearling purchase. Vorhees Arab, who was the favorite and finished second, cost ,400. It was the sixteenth start for Our Love, a three-year-old, while Prince Mike, a four-year-old went postwarcl six times last season and a number of times in 1952.
