Unbeaten Cancel Seeks Third Score Nine Juveniles Go In Downs Feature Thomsons Homebred Filly Has Spring Broker, Hello Swifty, Omar H. as Foes By Staff Correspondent CHURCHILL DOWNS, Louisville, Ky., May 4. — Thompsons Homebred, Cancel, heads a field of nine two-year-olds, representing but eight interests, for tomorrows featured Jet Pilot Purse, an allowance test at 5 furlongs. This daughter of Dark Star from Stamp Album at present enjoys an unblemished record of two victories in as many starts and looms a solid choice to extend this skein. Arrayed against this flashy filly will be T. Alie Grissoms Spring Broker, I. C. McMahans Hillsvale, E. F. Morans Omar H., Ralph C. Wilson, Jr.s Hello Swifty. Wilson and Hull, Jr.s Colonel O. M., C. C. DeRouens Cons Boy and the H. H. "Doc" Mundy and Mrs. Jack Carnes entry of Dickie Don and Old Story. Broke Maiden at Keeneland Cancel started her racing career less than a month ago when she met maidens at Keeneland and bounced to a two-length victory in :50%, at the about 4 furlongs distance over a "slow" strip. The miss was on her field all the way that damp afternoon and ably demonstrated that even better things were in sight. It was just six days later that she appeared on the track for her next victory and this time demonstrated she was a versatile miss in that she was allowed to drop back at the start, come wide into the stretch and run down the leaders with a big rush to win going away. The track was again "slow" for this second effort and the stepped the about J 2 -mile distance in :50?5, while defeating allowance company in the Hart-land Purse. W. D. Lucas, who has been astride the miss in both her races to date, will again be in the saddle tomorrow while attempting to maintain a perfect record. Spring Broker appears to be in a somewhat better position to emerge victorious than he was at last asking when he finished fourth to Chuckabuck in the Lafayette Stakes at Keeneland. This entire son of Moneybroker broke last from the barrier in the stake test to remain in that position through the opening quarter mile and then close with a surging rush through the stretch to gain a piece of the 5,875 purse. Certainly the added distance of the Jet Pilot would help this "Tennessee" Wright-trained colt as he has always done the majority of his running at the end so that the extra furlong would be of great benefit. Hillsvale can hardly be left out in this i field as the Haltal colt won his debut last i month at Keeneland when he defeated j ,500 maidens by over five lengths at the j about 4 furlongs distance. The colt relied V entirely on speed that afternoon as he i swept to the fore with the opening of the I starting gate and just coasted along with S his lengthy advantage to reach the end in :51, over a "slow" track. Now the question becomes for Hillsvale in that can he handle some of this more seasoned company who may not have to rely entirely upon speed alone. Of others Cons Boy and Hello Swiftly would rate serious consideration as the former won three in succession before finishing fourth over a "sloppy" track at Keeneland while Hello Swiftly won her last race at Gulf stream Park. All the re- I mainder have won during their short I career all of which should add considerable zest to the event.
