The Streator Purse, a six-furlong sprint conditioned for three-year-olds which never have won two races, is billed as the feature event on Thursdays interesting program at Lincoln Fields. This race had such attraction for owners and trainers of qualified horses that 18 were named through the entry box this morning. In the draw for the 12 post positions, six of the entrants, of course, were relegated to the "also eligible" list and none of these will start unless there are withdrawals among the first 12.
