At Bowie One Best Bet — LA MOR TE — In the Fifth Race. Well maldnd fields will parade to the post in lite arkus events at Prince Georges Park today. Two allowance races and one handicap arc to be decided. Nine fit racers are entered in the Flash Handicap, which will be run as the fourth race. They will he asked to race over the five and one-half furlongs distance. The fifth race, named the Prospect Purse, brings the smallest field of the day to the post, only-five being entered. This race calls for a contest over the one and one-sixteenth miles distance under allowance conditions. The other allowance race is fashioned for two-year-olds. Most of the starters in this con-i test will be making their first start, only four of them having been seen under colors. SIORT— RAPID THAN SIT— GLACIAL. Two-year-olds will make up the field for the Cadet Purse, which is to be run as the first race. They are to race a half mile, under allowance conditions. SPORT, though unable to get out of the maiden ranks while racing at the Fair Grounds, turned in some creditable efforts. On these races we are looking for her to leave the non-winners ranks today. RAPID TRANSIT also bad a winler campaign at Tijuana and, as he is ■ seasoned colt, we expect him to furnish the most opposition. On her two races to date GLACIAL has to be given the call over the other starters which will be making their debut. FHAMKK ROCK— SON A MI— COM MISSION KK I A HILL. The second race brings to the post a large field of platers to try conclusions over the six and on:-half furlongs distance. For the winner we are taking the mare FRANCV ROOK. She won her share of races last year and. from the speed she has been showing in her morning trials, gets the preference over this field. SON AMI is a consistent plater and he has to be given a good chance for some part of the purse against this sort of a field. COM All SSI ON KR CAHILL is a fit racer, for he had a winter campaign over the Havana track. Taking a line on his races there, he figures best of the rest of the field for the show money. MOI.L1F ELIZABETH— JT NIK-PROMPTER. Twenty maiden three-year-olds arc entered in the third race, which calls for a sprint over the three-quarters distance. MOLLIS ELIZABETH may be the one to leave the maiden ranks. Her workouts would indicate that she is ready for one of her best races and, taking a line on her one race here last fall, she appears to like this track. J UN IK looms as the most dangerous contender. She raced well while at Jefferson Park and, should the track turn to other than fast, her chance of winning would be greatly improved. PROMPTER* which races under the colors of A. J. Joyner, has been training u* II, and the dockers say he is ready to give a good account of himself the first time out. POL Y— SEN ATOIl ■ O ■ R I S— ROSI N A NTE. The Flash Handicap has attracted thirteen horses from the handicap division to show their wares over the five and one half furlongs. POLY, which raced with marked success last year, holds an edge over the band that will oppose him. He is asked to shoulder top weight, but we doubt if this will prevent him winning over the short distance. A race in his best style should find him heme the winner. SENATOR NORRIS was a good sprinter last year. He has be?n training to the satisfaction of bis trainer, If. G. Bcdwell, and we look for him *o -*ive a good account of himself here. ROSIXANTK. on her Fair Grounds races, has to be given a chance for some part of the pay off. LIEUTENANT II. has been turning in some fast trials and may bear watching. LA MO RTF.— 1 LY HAWK— PRICKLY HEAT. H. G. Redweirs LA MORTE seems to stand out from the small field which will hook up in the fifth number. We are taking him for the best bet of the day, for he has but to show some of his old-time form to be able to lead this field to the wire. FLY HAWK may be the one to follow LA MORTE home. He raced to good advantage during the winter months and, though he has had a rather stiff campaign, we look for him to give LA MORTE the most argument. PRICKLY I1KAT gets the call for the short end of the pane. He also raced during the winter months and this should be to his advantage over the rest of the field. SLEEPY TIME— MOROCCO— BLlE FLAG. In the sixth race we are taking SLEEPY TIME as the probable winner. He rounded into his best form while racing over the New i Orleans tracks, in his last two races there he was returned the winner on both occasions and, in inning those races, he met some of the best of bis division. He shipped well from the South and Ma workouts here would indicate that he has lost none of his speed. MOROCCO, from the Sanola Stock Farm Stable, is looked upon to furnish the contention. He is a fit horse and acCMM ready for one of his good races. BLUE FLAT; did not take to the going in his last race at New Orleans, but with the track more to his liking today, we look for him to be among the placed horses of the contest. KANDI IT— JIST FOLKS— GRAND BEY. The last race f the day looks like a good spot for KANDUIT to turn in a winning effort. The mare will be making her first start of the year, but we look for her to score, for she hf.s been working satisfactorily and a race to her best form should be good enough to beat this band. J LST FOLKS is a rather consistent sort of plater and, should he be ready for one of his best races, will be hard to keep out of the picture. GRAND BEY has to be given a good chance to upset the figures for, taking a line on his last race at Jefferson Park, which was a good win, he has to be considered a strong contender in this field.
