RECORD BREAKER DISCOVERY REACHES DETROIT i * NEXT START SATURDAY ♦ Brooklyn Handicap Winner to Go in 5,000 Detroit Challenge Cup. * Head Play and Vanderbilt Colt to Vie for Favoritism of Small but Classy Field. • DETROIT, Mich., June 24.— Discovery arrived at Detroit this morning. None the worse from his world record breaking journey that carried him to victory over King Saxon and Omaha in the Brooklyn Handicap Saturday, and a speedy trip that tarted from Belmont Park yesterday, the son of Display is here waiting for the 5,000 added Detroit Challenge Cup, which will be decided Saturday. Only a stable pony and his regular groom i accompanied the Alfred Gwynne Vander- i bilt star from New York, but assistant train- j er E. G. Shaffer was on hand to supervise | the unloading of him. Shaffer came from Chicago, where he supervised the loading of Cold Shoulder at Washington Park for his transfer to New York. Mrs. Silas B. Masons Head Play breezed five-eighths in 1:00*5 Sunday morning. He is in the pink of condition and with the assurance of only a small field for the gallop at one mile and three-sixteenths, he is almost certain to be the favorite or equal choice with Discovery. ROMAN SOLDIER OUT. There appears little chance of Sachsen-maier and Reuters Roman Soldier filling hi3 engagement. According to word received from Chicago, the son of Cohort came out of the American Derby in a bad way and will be on the shelf for ten days or more. With no word received regarding E. R. Bradleys Bazaar, J. M. Austins Mr. Khayyam, Frank Carreauds Time Supply and Roman Soldier eliminated, it appears that only a small field will be under colors. Alex Wilson was well satisfied with Az-ucars effort in the Pontchartrain Handicap. He is going along slowly with the Santa Anita Handicap winner, and he believes he will be at his best for the race. Although the management received word this morning that Cavalcade probably would not be here to fill his engagement, Clarence E. Lehr, president of the Detroit Racing Association, held out hopes that the leading three-year-old of 1934 would be shipped from the East. The Cup race was arranged by Messrs. Alger, Vanderbilt and Mrs. Sloane, and it is believed that the former Detroiter would have her charge here, unless it was impossible to get him ready for the trying journey.
