Last and Only in Feature at Cicero Faces Seven Foes In Lord Boswell Truman Again Gets Mount; Snoozie Considered Major Threat in Route Engagement SPORTSMANS PARK, Cicero, 111., May 7. — Last and Only, a stretch-running gelding which appears to improve with each engagement, makes his fourth start at Sportsmans Park Wednesday afternoon •when he faces seven others in the ,000 Lord Boswell Purse, a one and one-sixteenth miles test which will be the seventh race on a nine-race program. Owned by Morris Pinto of Houston and trained by William W. Morrow, Last and Only racked up his only Sportsmans Park victory last Saturday, defeating Doc Moorman in a one-mile event. At the same time, Last and Only registered a victory for jockey Jerry Truman, who will be astride the gelding again. Two days earlier, Last and Only finished second to Snoozie in the one-mile Elmhurst Purse. Unplaced in Last In his initial start at the meeting, Last and Only was out of the money in a race won by King Bebe, which captured last Saturdays 5,000 Nash Memorial. Before coming to the local scene, Last and Only scored a victory at Keeneland when jockey Willie Hartack brought him home in a seven-furlong affair. The son of Quick Reward was the 9-to-5 favorite in the race. Snoozie, owned by W. B. Simpson and B. H. Wise, and winner over Last and Only in the Elmhurst Purse* last Thursday, is considered as one of the major threats in the field. Snoozie, in three attempts at the meeting, was not out of the money. He was third in his last effort, second in his second start, and a winner in his latest. The son of Double Jay will be ridden by Jack Fieselman. Harold H. Rendlemans Shoot Man and M. B. Armers Reclaim both finished out of the money in the Elmhurst. Horace J. Wises Next Page, which is coupled with Snoozie as an entry, started only once at the meeting. Others in the race are Mrs. W. J. Nolan and Mrs. C. F. Stones Beau Carvel, Ray Westons Happy Lad and E. V. Laindaches Jims Whim. Jims Whim is a first starter at the meeting, but won two races at New Orleans, while Happy Lady was third behind Dr. Joe Kay and Akboy in his latest effort. Beau Carvel is a non-winner at the meeting.
