Preakness Preakness Field Field of of 14 14 Seen Seen Likely; Likely; Tinkalero Tinkalero Victress Victress in in Colonial Colonial Prep Prep Gets Home Length Before Betty Linn Favored Dandy Blitzen Runs Fifth as Monaco Filly Boosts Her Stock at Garden State By WILLIAM C. PHILLIPS GARDEN STATE PARK, Camden, N. J., May 11. — Triple M. Farms Tinkalero bolstered her stock for the 5,000 added Colonial Handicap at 6 furlongs here this Saturday when she won todays featured Barrington Purse in 1:11% to equal the best time of the meeting regishtered Saturday by Intentionally. Expertly ridden by her regular rider, Arthur Sherman, the four-year-old daughter of Bolero — Miss Tinka drew clear under a strong hand ride and bested C. S. Handelmans Betty Linn by a length. The latter found room along the inside and closed well to finish a length in front of Anthon P. Bovellos Battle Hill, who led Alfred T. Taylors Miss Orestes by the same margin. The summerlike-day- crowd of 18,920 made Tinkalero second choice to B. A. Darios Dandy Blitzen and she paid .60. The latter defeated Tinkalero when the pah* made their last start three weeks ago in the John Alden Handicap at Suffolk Downs. Tinkalero finished fourth and it was the first time she had failed to place in the money in 10 starts this year. Winner Carries 121 Impost The winning filly, owned by John J. Monaco, of Chicago, carried 121 pounds today, one less than her Colonial assignment and three less than will be required of Mrs. Josephine Bay Pauls Idun if she accepts her highweight honors. Betty Linn carried 116 today, three more than will be required of her Saturday, while Battle Hill will drop seven pounds from her 116 carried today. Dandy Blitzen carried equal weight with Tinkalero and will get one pound off. Joe Culmone hustled Battle Hill to outpace Tinkalero after the start and Sherman wisely steadied his mount behind her and with a clear margin over the others. The leader carried Tinkalero slightly wide as the latter smoothly raced to the front in the uppe/ stretch and Sherman continued pressure to hold Betty Linn safe. Dandy Blitzen had been well placed outside the leaders for the stretch drive but lacked a response. As a comparison of time, it required Maurice H. Robineaus Counter Spy 1:12 to capture the Wynnefield Purse run as the seventh race. The four-year-old Spy Song colt was strongly handled by Robert E. Corle to rally between rivals and outfinish Brookfield Farms* Ideology by a head, with George W. Parkers Sand Boy only another head behind. The winner, who was claimed for 5,000 in Florida recently, carried 110 pounds and he paid .60. The Daily Double paid 79.40, the largest posted, when Elaine Roberts Rogerio insistently wore down rivals from the outside in the second race and won the 6 furlongs dash under apprentice James Bennett by a half-length. Harriet Robinsons Singer; also an outsider in the betting, was second and Robert Robertsons favored Monetary was a close third. Rogerio, trained by ex-jockey Porter Roberts, is a five-year-old English import who had not won a race in two years and he piad 0.20 straight. Jumping Hook Farms Spooky Cadet was ridden out by Wm. M. Cook to a five-length in the opener and he paid 3.60. i
