These are the ancients Inseparable and Seaward, who came out of retirement this spring. Many still will wager they remain capable enough to win such a race as the Au Revoir. To all indications their stoutest rival will prove to be Samuel Tufanos Rush Prince, and indeed he may be the post favorite, though he is making his first appearance here in the Midlands. The son of Prince-quillo becomes the topweight of. the acceptances, with an inconsequential enough 112 pounds, two more than Seawards impost and three more than is required of Inseparable, who has 109. The others of the small field are Wall and Armers En Fleur, at 110 pounds; John Warrens Living Doll, with the same weight, and Rebel Stables Super Devil, under 106. Successful Homecoming Meet The Au Revoir points up a program of nine races, which will mark the termination of the most successful meeting in the checkered history of Crete sport. It is an interesting card, though the stake, coming as it does close on the heels of the Lincoln Handicap and just before the Arlington Continued on Page Fifty-Six DR. FRANK R. MENNE— Newly elected president of the National Association of State Racing Commissioners. Au Revoir Attracts Sextet at Lincoln Seaward, Inseparable Entry Competes With Rush Prince At One Mile Route Today Continued from Page One meet, has not drawn a large field. It nevertheless appears to have all the elements of a sharply contested mile. The new stands at Lincoln have made an immediate hit with turf goers in the area and, with any luck in the weather, general manager Pete ODonnell will be host to a sizable "getaway day" crowd. A break in the raging heat wave has seemed to benefit the meet these last several days. Rush Prince came to this area with his stablemate Wise Margin, who ran unplaced in last week-ends Lincoln Handicap, and he is reputed to have progressed satis f ac-torily in pointing for this engagement. He was on the course during training hours this morning and breezed three furlongs in .37 with impresive facility. Before his departure from the East, Rush Prince was third to Soldier Son and Algasir at Rockingham Park. Before that he was second to Larry Ellis, whom he was attempting to concede five pounds, in a mile and a sixteenth race at Suffolk Downs. And he was a winner at Gulf stream Park before moving north. Many fancy that if he can reproduce his form against -Larry Ellis he will be distinctly the one to beat in this mile. Pair of Nine-Year-Olds Seaward and Inseparable now are nine-year-olds. One might say this pair started the Reuben establishment on its high road to success, for they were the first, or among the first, of numerous purchases the Tole-. dans made when they transferred their interest from the show ring to the race course. It had been planned to pension these geldings, but they were so sound and "full of i beans" it was decided to return them to training in the spring. Inseparable has seemed to sulk on occasion, but showed at Churchill Downs he still can produce a smart run when the idea appeals to him. Seaward long has been a special favorite of the Reubenses and is reported doing well for trainer Trotsek with this engagement . in view. The long run out of the mile chute and the quarter mile homestretch would appear tailored to his measure. These three appear the contenders to most students of form, and it will probably come in the nature of a surprise if En Fleur, Living Doll or Super Devil carries off the final stake of the meeting. And, of course, were either of the Reuben performers so good as he once was, the others of the Au Revoir field would be hopelessly outclassed. The Au Revoir has a counterpart at Rockingham Park, where there is a feature of the same name, but this Lincoln version is new, only just being inaugurated at this , meeting.
