With western stables stronger than they ever have been, intersectional rivalry this year at Arlington Park promises to be keener than ever, believes Charles A. McCulloch, chairman of the board of directors of the Arlington Park Jockey Club. In discussing the prospects, chairman McCulloch, who has seen much racing in all parts of the country this year, said: "A great many of the better thoroughbreds now are just hitting their best stride and as they are to assemble at Arlington to share in a purse and stakes distribution of 00,000, Chicago racing enthusiasts may look forward to some very interesting racing. "Owners and trainers of the prominent eastern stables have assured me they will send their best horses after victory in the important Arlington Stakes, but Im afraid they will find the western establishments more able than ever to give them a good fight," Mr. McCulloch concluded. Leading stables of the country, with their trainers, that will be represented at Arlington Park include: Owner. Trainer. F. M. Alger, Jr G. S. Preece Belair Stud Jas. Fitzsimmons Bomar Stable R. E. Potts E. R. Bradley Wm. Hurley E. R. Bradley H. J. Thompson Brentwood Stable A. Frost Brookmeade Stable R. A. Smith Calumet Farm B. B. Williams Coldstream Stud A. B.

Jones All of these owners and many others have horses eligible for the six important stakes on the Arlington program, the most famous of which is the 0,000 added Classic and the most valuable the 0,000 Arlington Futurity. These events and the Stars and Stripes Handicap, Arlington Handicap, Arlington Lassie Stakes and Hyde Park Stakes are expected to bring together the outstanding members of the various divisions and ridden by the nations crack jockeys. The Classic, as it has done so frequently in the past, should establish the three-year-old championship, as it will bring together Omaha and the contenders developed during the past month. It marks Omahas first engagement of the season in the Middle West and his appearance with his leading rivals may result in a new attendance record being set at Chicagos largest track. With their eligibility lists including the names of nearly all of the outstanding older horses in the country as well as the better three-year-olds, the Stars and Stripes and Arlington Handicaps promise brilliant contests. Each of these events possesses an added value of 0,000. In addition to the Arlington Futurity, two-year-olds have splendid opportunities to earn big money in the Hyde Park and Lassie Stakes. The former will be worth about 0,000, and the Lassie, which is solely for fillies, will provide the winner with the major share of a 5,000 purse. A —
