Jamaica Rounds Into Final Week Sids Gambol and Jutland Among Eight in Featured Fulton Sprint on Monday By DON FAIR JAMAICA. L. I., N. Y.. May 3.— The ,500 Fulton Purse, a 6 furlongs condition race for four-year-olds and up, will feature the Monday program as Jamaica goes into the final week of its spring meeting. Eight useful performers are slated to tangle in the Pulton, which shapes up as an interesting attraction. Under the Fulton allowances, A. J. Mes-lers Sids Gambol and Mrs. Arthur Whites Hastego are to carry equal top weight of 124 pounds. Joe W. Browns Mr. Al L., 121; Clearwater Stables Portersville, 120: M. Newtons Egotistical, 117; Mrs. Julie Mirons Jutland, 120; W. C. Partees Damocles, 108, and Greentree Stables Cohoes, 117 pounds, make up the probable Fulton starting band. Damocles is in with a five-pound apprentice allowance, while Cohoes gets a three-pound shade with youthful Johnny Ruane slated to handle the riding chore. Ray Broussard, leading rider at the Fair Grounds last winter, will handle Mr. Al 1m, Manuel Ycaza rides Sids Gambol, and Eddie Arcaro is engaged for Jutland. Ted Atkinson has calls on Portersville and Egotistical, apprentice Jackie Leonard will be astride Damocles and Bill Boland is named on Hastego. Cohoes, Portersville, Damocles, and Mr. Al L. are scheduled to make their Empire State seasonal debuts in the Monday dash. Cohoes has trained sharply for his initial engagement, Portersville failed to race to top form at? New Orleans, Mr. Al L. looked good "in several Crescent City starts while Damocles, a capable turf performer, met some of the best while in Florida. Whipped King Hairan Among Others Sids Gambol, a four-year-old Polynesian colt, annexed the three-quarters mile Farmingdale Purse here April 17, turning back such quick sprinters as Octagonal, King Hairan, and Decimal, among others. The Mesler stable representative, trained by H. Allen Jerkens, worked impressively for his Monday outing. Hastego, successful in his last two .races, is a capable sprinter on any type footing. The five-year-old Hasteville-sired gelding showed his heels to five speedy rivals here April 23, stepping 6 furlongs through sloppy going in a highly-creditable l:103/s. His margin over Amber Diver in the latter event was more than two lengths while Discard and King Hairan trailed in the field. Jutland and Egotistical also visited the local winners ring after trimming speedy company in their prior engagements. Jutland was sharp enough to whip Ambergris, One Stroke, and Bushers Fantasy, among others, while Egotistical defeated Bushers Idol. One Stroke, Octagonal, Gay Warrior, Golden East, and Ambergris. Two stakes are to be renewed here during the final week. The 5,000 Youthful, 5 furlongs for juvenile colts and geldings, will be decided Wednesday and the 0,000 Grey Lag, 1 1-8 miles for three-year-olds and up. is Jamaicas Saturday closing day headliner. The Youthful attracted a list of 52 nominees this spring and racing secretary-handicapper Jimmy .Kilroe expects a bulky field to contest the mid-week stakes. Included in the listr of 25 Grey Lag eligibles are such hard-hitting performers as Brookmeade Stables Oligarchy, Christopher T. Chenerys Third Brother, Happy j Hill Farms Kingmaker. Ethel D. Jacobs Paper Tiger and Promised Land. Also Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilts Find, Mrs. Wallace Gilroys stakes-winning Oh Johnny, King Ranchs Beam Rider, and Jack W. Schiffers General Arthur.
