High Voltage Meets 10 in Gazelle HIGH VOLTAGE WINNING THE DELAWARE OAKS Wheatley Stables three-year-old filly queen, who is entered in Mondays Gazelle Stakes at Aqueduct, is pictured leading Hen Party by a neck in the 9,625 Delaware Oaks on June 18. Eddie Arcaro was the winning rider. Rich Romance was third, a half length off the runner-up. The race was run in 1:50. Caustic Is Paired With Filly Queen . Sometime Thing, Two Stars And Bless Pat Are Threats In 0,700 Distaff Event By BOB HORWOOD Stafj Correspondent AQUEDUCT L. I., N. Y., June 25. Champions, or potential champions, of four divisions are slated to appear in stakes events at Aqueduct during the next seven racing days. Wheatley Stables High Voltage, reigning queen of the nations three-year-old fillies, heads a field of 11 of her age and sex in Mondays Gazelle Stakes, at a mile and a sixteenth. King Ranchs High Gun and, probably, his chief rival in the handicap division, William Helis, Jr.s, Helioscope, are to clash in the seven-furlong Carter Handicap the following Monday, July 4. Next SaturdayT Belair Studs Nashua, Eastern three-year-old champion is slated to parade in the Dwyer Stakes at a mile and a quarter. On Wednesday, juvenile fillies are to meet at five and a half furlongs in the Astoria Stakes, and while no standout junior misses have appeared as yet, Mi-. Fitz has said that High Voltages sister Mrgneto is his best two-year-old and the filly may justify this opinion in the mid-week fixture. High Voltage, who has won the Acorn, Black-Eyed Susan, Coaching Club American Oaks and Delaware Oaks this year, is asked to carry 121 pounds in Mondays Gazelle, conceding eight pounds to all of her rivals "except Alfred G. Vanderbilts Sometime Thing, who gets in with 117. Eddie Arcaro is flying back from Ohio to ride High Voltage, who will be coupled" with Ogden Phipps Caustic. Ted Atkinson will ride this daughter of Menow, who has won her last three starts and would have many supporters if she were running on her own. Entry Looms Short-Priced Favorite The entry looms a short-priced favorite, with this department preferring the chances of Caustic at the weights. High Voltage had all she could do to neck Hen Party in last weeks Delaware Oaks, an effort which followed a decisive defeat by older horses in the Top Flight Handicap and it may be that the gray daughter of Ambiorix has "had it" for the present. Hen Party, however, had suffered very poor racing luck in her three starts before the Delaware Oaks and is eligible to extend any filly. Sometime Thing, who will be ridden by Eric Guerin, went out of her age division and took the worst of the weights in the seven-furlong Distaff Handicap here last Monday, finishing a fairly close fourth behind the consistent Oil Painting. Her earlier races were mostly good, occasionally brilliant. The chief dangers to Mr. Fitz pair appear to be Rear-Admiral Howard A. Flani-gansTwo Stars and Pin Oak Farms Bless Pat, while Miss Eleanora Sears Soya II. may be the "dark horse" of the Gazelle. Two Stars comes from an impressive victory over the "vastly improved Misty Morn at Aqueduct, while Bless Pat was an easy winner of her last at Belmont Park. - Both fillies wen at seven furlongs in style suggesting that they wont-be troubled by the added distance. Paul Bailey will ride 3 Two Stars, while Hedley John Woodhouse - will be on Eless Pat. r Soya II. is a French filly who came to this country with the best credentials ever imported by a juvenile from that country, having won the Prix Robert Papin, one of 7 the most important juvenile stakes ,in 7 France. In her only local start, the hand-! some daughter of Sayani turned in an ex-, cellent race to be third to Blue Banner and Fantine Busher and she has been training 1 impressively for Jimmy Smith since that 1 debut. No rider has yet been named for .. Soya II.. or for C. V. Whitneys Minnie j Mobcher, who has hot been seen since iier Continued on Page Twelve High Voltage and Ten Others Entered in Gazelle Monday Continued from Page Seven poor race in the Acorn Stakes, but who has also been training well. The Gazelle field is completed by Louis Lee Haggin TXs Smart Devil, Arnold Hangers Rico Romance, C. T. Chenerys Man-otick and Mrs. G. L. strikers Elenem. Smart Devil and Rico Romance were un-nlflppd behind High Voltage in the Dela- ware Oaks, in which Smart Devil set the early pace for her stablemate, Hen Party. Elenem and Manotick finished in that order behind Searching at a mile and a sixteenth last Tuesday and Caustic has already given six pounds and a beating to that filly. If all 11 go postward in the Gazelle, the stake will gross 0,700 and net the winner 1,650. A victory would push High Voltages earnings over the 00,000 onark, she having already won 90,195.
