cun JO in Delaware Valley Stakes Unbeaten Juvenile Filly Star Of 57 Has Four Foes Pion Backbone Top 29000 Event EventBy By WILLIAM C PHILLIPS PHILLIPSGARDEN GARDEN STATE PARK Camden N J May 9 Mrs C

Farms Delnita Harriett Robinsons Fall Wind King Ranchs Say So and Ronald Stables Percussion PercussionIt It was not immediately announced what pools would be open for wagering but it is almost certain that show wagering will be eliminated and perhaps the place pool due to the overwhelming stature of Idun Because of this fact the New Jersey Rac ¬ ing Commission authorized the running of nine events on Saturday instead of the usual eight eightFour Four Stakes Winners in Field FieldThe The Delaware Valley is expected to be a wideopen betting race with four of the contestants already stakes winners this year and almost every one of the 10 hav ¬ ing adequate recommendations to emerge the victor The sixth running of the stake will be worth 1888250 to the winner if all start less 325 of his own nomination and starter fees feesThe The track is extremely slow arid holding as this is written Friday afternoon and due to the thorough saturation caused by the recent seige of rain it is doubtful that it will be any better than good for Satur ¬ day and may still be slow Weather pre ¬ dictions are more heartening however and a crowd exceeding 40000 would not be surprising surprisingIdun Idun won all of her eight races last year including the rich Gardenia at this track to pass the earnings of Top Flight and es ¬ tablish a new moneywinning mark for a juvenile filly with earnings of 220955
