Homewood, 111., May 5. — Tudor Era and Lincoln Road, two "first citizens" of what should be one of the strongest contingents of stakes horses in the history of Illinois spring racing, already are bedded down at Washington Park awaiting Balmoral Jockey Clubs opening on May 18. Mrs. Herbert Herffs grass-loving Tudor Era, whose lifetime bankroll already exceeds 50,000 and whose record of stakes triumphs includes last winters Hialeah Turf Cup in Florida, heads a formidable group of 50 horses under the direction of trainer- Arnold Winick at the Homewood course. Sunny Blue Farms Lincoln Road, absent from the races since last years Stars and Stripes Handicap at Washington Park, was among 14 horses quartered at Washington Park under supervision of trainer Vic J. Sovinski. Lincoln Road, best remembered as Tim Tarns shadow in last years three-year-old classics, finished second to the ill-fated Calumet sophomore in the Florida Derby, Kentucky Derby and Preakness and won the 1958 Jersey Stakes at Garden State in 10 starts, earning 23,735.

Among ready-to-run Bishop runners are Bernburgoo, who crashed turf headlines last year with a thumping victory over Round Table in the Wright Memorial at Arlington, and the Anna. 111., horsemans current stars, Petes Folly and the ex-claimer, Hare Raising. Sea Hymn, Ebony Pearl, Safe Message, Brown Hackle and Liberal Art also are among the Bishop brigade.
