Black Black Eyed Eyed Susan Susan Brings Brings Out Out Eight; Eight; Mr. Mr. Jr. Jr. Governors Governors Cap Cap Highweight Highweight Seeks Third Victory Over Cicero Course Lowrance Colorbearer Totes 118 Pounds Today; Sir Tribal Entered in Supporting Event By C. A. LINDEMAN Staff Correspondent SPORTSMANS PARK, Cicero, 111., May 12. — Everett Lowrances Mr. Jr., who is seeking his third victory of the current meeting, has been assigned the high weight of 118 pounds in the 1959 running of the ,500 Governors Handicap, a six and one-half furlongs speed test. In weighting Mr. Jr., Racing Secretary John C. Daniel has asked him to conceded four pounds to the Joe-Anna Stables Quick Master. The flashy field of three-year-olds numbers eight for this annual fixture here. Mr. Jr., one of the most consistent performers of the meeting, has scored two times out of his three starts. The three-year-old son of Everett Jr. and Black Beauty won two six-furlong dashes in succession the first two times out at this meet-k. ing; the first time he suffered defeat being when he ran second to the top -flight sophomore, Contrane. Even in that defeat, the Lowrance sprinter was gaining at every stride. Thus far this year, the Lowrance color-bearer has started 12 times and was returned the winner six times. With the manner in which this field is weighted, Mr. Jr. should rule a slight favorite, but he has by no means any the best of it. His recent races over this five-eighths mile track have shown him going his strongest in the final stages at six furlongs, which would indicate that he will go on with just as much stretch-running ability. Chambers to Ride Wayne Chambers will have the mount on Mr. Jr. for this test. The Joe-Anna Stables Quick Master with 1 Impounds comes to the Wednesday feature with an outstanding record, having won one of his two starts here. Quick Master, a fleet son of Quick Reward and Miss Cindy Sue, hasnt been able to display his best as yet due to the fact that; both of his outings have been over off-going. Although Quick Master is not as fast from the gate as Mr. Jr., he can show speed in the stretch. W. J. Schmidts Quick Wit, who finished third to Coltrane and Mr. Jr. in her last start here in the Midwestern Handicap, is by no means outclassed in this fleet field j of printers. In her last race, she was closing steadily on her male rivals through the final stages of the six-furlbngs. The added sixteenth may be advantageous to this daughter of Shannon n. I Competing the field of eight entrants in the Governors are Don E. Becks Kumsha, Mrs. Carl Greenes Spring. Fire, Poker Player, making his first start of the meeting and who comes to this face with four victories this year and races in the silks of William Hal Bishop; Stone Heart and One W. j j Co-featured on the nine-race card for Wednesday will be the eighth event, which brings together nine top-flight, claiming-type milers. This event is headed by Sir Tribal, who is entered in the optional claiming event for 0,000. The Charles Fritz-owned eight-year-old, gray gelding has started twice at this meeting, against the best of the handicap performers. In his last race, he was a strongly closing third to Bishops Light and The Great Man. Among others slated to match strides with Sir Tribal are Retobaco II., Statistical and the Bishop entry of Grannys First and Four Cycle.
