ability to pick up fields with belated but powerful rushes Kingmaker comes up to the Grey Lag after a welldeserved triumph in the Ex ¬ celsior Handicap He drops two pounds from his Excelsior burden and the manner in which he scored in the April 29 feature indicated that he is razor sharp f6rran other fine effort effortThe The Happy Hill Farm gelding trimmed trimmedThird Third Brother by slightly more than a alength length in the Excelsior but the Chenery stalwart gave a good performance and may take some beating in the Grey Lag Third Brother will be in quest of his first major success since

stallion a homebred son of Poised and Join the Fleet posted a foursixtwo record dur ¬ ing his 1957 campaign and the presence of youthful but efficient William Peake in the saddle certainly will afford him good handling handlingOh Oh Johnny won the Gotham during the current meeting and finished fourth in the Lincoln Special while Admiral Vee cap ¬ tured the Paumonok but failed to stay in the Excelsior and was soundlytrounced Oligarchy has drawn an unfavorable Grey Lag post position number thirteen but he has the speed to draw clear and it must be remembered that he annexed the 100000 Widener and the 25000 Laurel earlier in the season seasonKingmaker Kingmaker of course captured the Grey Lag last year and Find was the victor in 1953 beating a crack field The Vanderbilt star also was but a head back of Nashua in the 1956 renewal and he currently is ninth oh the list o alltime money winners He has won four stakes over the local oval but his rider jockey Arcaro is still looking for his first Grey Lag winning trip tripSeveral Several good supporting races are listed for decision on the Saturday closingday program and Jamaica officials prepared today to entertain a nearrecord crowd crowdThe The New York racing scene will of course shift to beautiful Belmont on Mon ¬ day and the 1958 renewal of the important Withers Stakes is to headline an attractive 1 inaugural day card
