I | | I i ! ! [Turbo Jet Heads Field In Handicap at Wheeling Vies With On the Ropes, Early Bull, Mo Supreme at 1 1/16 Miles By J. J. HAHN WHEELING DOWNS, Wheeling, W. Va., May 2. — P. L. Rices Turbo Jet, who rallied to finish in a dead heat for third in the feature race here last Saturday, will carry topweight of 116 pounds tomorrow and concede from one to nine pounds to seven rivals in the 1 1-16 miles Polish-American Political Association Handicap. Turbo Jet, a five-year-old gelded son of Menow — Dain£y, by Bimelech, who was bred by Shawnee Farm, has failed to win in six starts this year, but is still rated highly off his outing here last week. The feature, which is the eighth race on .the nine-race program, has also attracted the coupling of Mrs. B. B. Caseys On the Ropes, 115 and Mrs. Vivian Shaefers Baritone Bob 114; Mrs. J. Fergusons Mo Supreme, 115: Miljer and Jolleys Early Bull, 112; Mrs., P. W. Morris Fun n* Fancy, 111; J. Potrykus Palmer, 109 and A. Barrs Bulger and J. C. Bakers Yucca Flat at 107. The last named is on the also eligible list aad isnot likely to get into the race. I Early Bull, the handicap champion here i last season, comes into the race with a five-length victory in a claiming race behind him and the veteran gelding, who won 13 of 18 starts last season, may once again be getting back into top form. The win was only his first this season. Mo Supreme, who was second to Colonel Wilson in last weeks feature when he carried 112 pounds to Turbo Jets 109, is a strong candidate while On the Ropes, who has been unsuccessful in two starts here this season, is a veteran of better company on the New Jersey and Maryland circuits, and figures to improve. The best crowd of the meeting is anticipated tomorrow as racing secretary and handicapper Edward A. Miller has arranged a balanced card which achieved its purpose of getting the better horses named for the nine races. Colonel Wilson heads a field of. six in the 6/2 furlongs sixth race, the co-feature, which has also lured Calamity, Maine Averiue, Sea Rebel, Cathy Carson and Sun Night. Colonel Wilson has won two handicaps here this season. Post time is at 2:30 p.m. EDT. j I !
