I - Cinda Seeking Third Regret Score Tries to Achieve Feat at Monmouth Faces Difficult Task With Brazen Brat and Lillal as Rivals in Six-Furlong Test By WILLIAM C. PHILLIPS f Staff Correspondent MONMOUTH PARK, Oceanport, N. J., June 18. — Jouett Shouses Cinda Saturday will attempt a remarkable feat. The five-year-old daughter of Occupy and Arden Lass is being pointed for her third straight triumph in the six-furlong Regret Handicap, and it appears that she will be a heavy-favorite to be successful. Cinda is co-weighted with Mrs. S.M.Pis-torios Brazen Brat under 124 pounds, with Warner L. Jones Lillal posted six pounds less, and the others ranging down to a light weight of 109 pounds. The prize is 5,000 added and eight fillies and mares are in the field. The Shouse miss has won her only two starts this year, one at Delaware Park, and her last over the local strip. She appears to be at the peak of her successful career, despite the fact that she retired from her campaign last season suffering from a bow. Her front legs were bandaged when she scored her triumph here, but she is carrying more flesh than she did winning the Regret last year, and the firm footing afforded by this exceptionally fast strip apparently is made to order for her to forget whatever infirmity that she may retain. Cinda won the Regret last year under a top package of 120 pounds, narrowly defeating H. P. Headleys Recover, with Brazen Brat finishing third while receiving a five-pound handicap. Four-Time Winner This Year Brazen Brat enjoyed her most sparkling season this spring, beating shifty members of both sexes in capturing four races, including the Rowe Memorial Handicap at Bowie. Lillal won the Colonial Handicap at Garden State by an impressive three length margin, and from this effort ranks more than a match for Brazen Brat. The latter gave her worst performance this season in the Colonial. She failed to show any of her usual speed and led only two horses to the wire, finishing 13th. Brazen Brat had no apparent excuse, but the showing was too poor to be credited very seriously. It- was proven quite- conclusively that Lillal is at her best in sprint races when Lillal is at her best in sprint races when Handicap at Belmont Park a week ago. She was nicely rated in this mile and a sixteenth fixture, but faltered in the drive and finished seventh. Jimmy Stout, who rode Cinda to her last victory and in the Regret last year, will be astride the mare again tomorrow. Ken Church, astride Lillal in her Colonial triumph, is being imported from Chicago for this race, while N. Shuk has been made for Brazen Brat. The adjudged trio are outstanding in class over their rivals, but the entire band is well qualified. Speed is the complement of nearly all, with the exception of William M. Wickhams Winning Stride, and a great deal will hinge upon the start. John L. McKnights Blue Rhymer gave Cinda a stout challenge the entire six furlongs here the other day, and she receives six pounds for the three-quarters of a length by which she was beaten. Cinda was the complete master of the situation at all times in this race, but weight is the great equalizer. Winning Stride finished a fourth with a late burst of speed, and it is not beyond reason that a stiffer early pace tmorrow might make way for her stretch rally to be more effective. Brookfield Farms I Salute and L.Het-zels Countess Jane are making their season debuts in this event. I Salute has been training well and is capable 6f an upset, but Countess Jane seems overmatched. Maine Chance Farms Incidentally has raced only twice this year, and her outing in the Betsy Ross at Garden State can be discounted as she received serious interference on the turn. In her other effort she raced well to finish third to Trisong and Open Sesame in the Prioress at Jamaica.
