River Downs to Present Interesting Card Monday Limit Group Slated to Parade Postward in Top Sprint Event RIVER DOWNS, Cincinnati, Ohio, June 4. — Mondays eight-race card will usher in the second full week of racing at this plant and the events on the agenda for the second week are equally as interesting as those which have already passed. Racing secretary Larry Bogenschutz has arranged a varied card for Monday with the distances of the events changing "considerably from the usual group of sprints which greeted the fans Monday. Though the seventh event is customarily the feature spot on the eight-race cards, a maiden two-year-old affair for fillies bears the title on the overnight as the Myrtlewood and is programed as the sixth. It is difficult to predict the performances of the juveniles and while the remaining seven events embrace the platers the seventh race appears to be the best of the lot. The test is four-year olds and older horses and there are 15 in all eligible to meet starter Carl Burns at the six-furlongs chute. The conditions call for those which have not won since April 14th, with maidens allowed three pounds extra and there are a few which have had an outing- or two .over this course and showed some promise. J. J. Gayins Botafogp, for qnef finished a bahg-uq second to ?vy« F. ScotVs Sambouk in the sixth race here last Wednesday. Beaten but a neck, the 11-year-old Oakland horse was the victim of some poor racing luck. Coming out of the final elbow of the stretch turn he was blocked in behind a wall of horses. Nearing the furlong marker, apprentice Arthur Salem saw an opening and with alert handling was getting to the winner at the end. A return to that performance, with a bit of racing luck, should make this well-seasoned campaigner a dangerous foe in this field Monday. S. B. Davids Head Draftsman was in the wake of that field to run fourth but like Botafogo also ran into some bad luck leaving the gate when he was bounced around a bit. In the early part, the Footsaver offspring had trouble gaining best stride but once clear showed a strong late effort through the stretch. Others to round out the field include Mrs. A. R. Finlaysons Whit-suntide, which finished a worthy second to Fischer and Fruchtmans Wrangler in the last encounter; Princess Seven, Take All, Sea Sweet, Frame Work,, Hot Pilot, Gray Desert, Four Down, A Plus. Tonys Trouble and Gilded Right. The trio on the also eligible list are Head Draftsman, Pachita and Cuff Link.
