Veenemans filly, Woodlawn, checked in from Belmont, where she turned in a fine effort to finish third in the Coaching Club American Oaks. If Woodlawn is to compete in another stake at this meeting, she will be required to face older fillies and mares. Two such events are on the agenda, the Modesty, to be run on the grass July 10, and Arlington Matron, to be decided July 24. Lori-El, winner of the Coronet Stakes- at the Balmoral meeting, is back after having spent several weeks in the East. Trainer Jimmy Jones and jockey Willie Hartack came in from Delaware Park, where Hartack rode and Jones saddled-Princess Turia for her score in the New Castle Handicap. Hartack will journey to Delaware this week to again pilot The Princess in a stake. Trainers Howard Hoffman and Phil Colucci and jockeys Ralph Borgemenke, Ray Camp and Kenr neth Church were returnees from Ohio: trainer Arthur Mettz from New York, and owner-trainer Mike Soto from Delaware. Irish-Bred Joins Thompson String Aside -from Lori-El, Soto brought Moose Sign, Get for Home, Ronnies Jet and the two-year-old Little Bun • from the East. . . . Trainer Larry Thompson received the three-year-old Irish-bred colt, Disco Volante, from overseas. The sophomore was recently purchased by Thompson through The Curragh Bloodstock Agency. . . . Trainer Charlie Parke has announced that John Heckmann, who is battling with Willie Hartack for the riding leadership at this-meeting, would have the mount of Fred Hoopers Alhambra in Wednesdays Primer and would ride the same owners Greke Game in the Laurance Armour Memorial Saturday. . . . Trainer Bob Cramer stated he would send D. E. Lovemans two-year-old filly, Maraja, to ThistleDown to run in a juvenile stake at that course Saturday. . . . Tex Sutton, who is in the employ of Ralph Lowe, got in from Lexington and will take Combound and Ponders Girl, owned by Lowe, to River Downs. In winning the Myrtlewood Handicap here Saturday, Hasty House Farms six-year-old Sea O Erin boosted his earnings over the 00,000 mark. It was the nineteenth victory for the son of Shannon n. and his first in 10 starts this year. Sea O Erin, the stables hardest-working thoroughbred in recent years, was making his eighty-third start. About 10 years ago, Hasty House had two horses who topped Sea O Erins mark as far as races were concerned. Inseparable started 133 times and Seaward went postward on 116 pccasions. The Myrtlewood was the second four-horse race to be staged at Arlington in one week. This was due to a change in track conditions in midafternoon. Good Gesture, owner by Jack R. Johnston and the Blossom Stable, pulled up lame following the event, but still managed to beat out Munchausen for third place. Although the attendance Saturday showed. an increase of over 1,000 over last year, money was scarcer and the pari-mutuel handle was well over 00,000 less. Burrs Fine Probably a Record ■ The fine of ,500, assessed jockey Charlie Burr wvas one of the largest, if not the largest, ever imposed on a rider on the American turf., However, if Charlie could win any of the stakes coming up, he could be even. When he returns to the saddle July 3, he will have lost 19,days- of action. . . . During the Burr hearing, it was brought out that but eight jockey valets are being used here, instead of the 12 employed at Balmoral. This was evidently done in order to enable the men to make a airly decent living. Their wages come from the jockeys, who pay them for a winning mount and for a losing mount. The money goes into a pool and is equally divided. Saturday, the pool would have amounted to 60, making each man receive 0, which is little enough for the work they do. In any race with over eight starters, some of the men have to double up. Their fee last year was for a winner and for a loser, but we understand the Jockeys Guild brought about the reduction. Trainer Doug Davis came in from Ohio to saddle Bernburgoo in Mondays featured Assault Purse. Jockey John Adams has-been engaged to ride william S. Millers Rellim S.
