► — : . Gallant-Man, Bold Ruler Work Lightly Limited Activity on Sloppy New York Strips; Polamby Goes Six Panels in 1 :12% By Staff Correspondent JAMAICA, L. I.. N. Y.. May 5.— Heavy rains and sloppy tracks curtailed training activity over the "week end at Belmont Park and Jamajca but several clever trials were posted despite the miserable conditions. Early today at the Belmont main course, where the "dogs" were up, Wheatley Stables Bold Ruler and his arch rival Ralph Lowes Gallant Man, were out for drills. Bold Ruler breezed an easy mile in 1:45, stepping the initial 4 furlongs in :5l and three-quarters in 1:18, while Gallant Man made an impressive physical appearance while breezing a half mile in :50 hard held. Ned W. Brents Polamby, successful at Belmont last season in the Astarita Stakes, caught the attention of dockers and work watchers when she whirled six furlongs through the , wet going in 1:12*5 handily. Polamby, a three-year-old homebred daughter of Ambiorix, pointing for a possible Acorn Stakes start, worked the first 3 furlongs in :3445, passed the half in :46% and was permitted to gallop out to seven-eighths mile in 1:26, turning in one of the top moves of the day., Prep for Withers Walter M. Jeffords Candace and Piano Jim, prepping for their Withers engagements, worked a mile together in 1:41%, spinning along quite handily the entire trip. The Jeffords, colts were not asked for anything in the way of high speed, their works being, most satisfactory to trainer Oscar White. Ogden Phipps* Harmonizing and Green-tree Stables Cohoes were given 7-furlong breezes, the former completed his task in 1:28% while the Greentree colt was clocked in 1:28. The training strip atv Belmont was not too busy during the work period. Mrs. Charles Ulrick Bays Idun, only filly named for the Withers breezed three-quarters mile in 1:15 while Cain Hoy Stables Red God, who returned to the* races with a well-deserved victory last week, breezed a like route in 1:13%. Nelson B. Hunts Master Boing and Oh Johnny, from the Mrs. Wallace Gilroy barn, preparing fc- the Grey Lag Handicap, each breezed eight furlongs. Oh Johnny moved along in a sprightly 1:41 while Master Boing. an outstanding grass course performer, required 1:45. At Jamaica and around the "dogs," Mrs. Jan Burkes Field of Honor, a Grey Lag nominee, worked a half mile in :47and handily from the gate. McGurck Stables Lucie Manette and Joe W. Browns Fanciful Miss, whose next major engagements are the Distaff Handicap, were sent six furlongs. Lucie Manette handled the sloppy going nicely and was timed in 1:13% from the gate while Fanciful Miss, who passed the Bed o Roses last week end, stepped along in 1:16%.
