Charles Hatton THE JUDGES STAND By Charles Hatton Whirly Departs Soon for Chi Ocean Wave Gallops Steadily Wright String WellBalanced Occupy Performs to Workouts NEW YORK N Y June 8 8Plain Plain Ben Jones wKb transformed Whirlaway from an extremely high strung colt into the worlds most solvent race horse will arrive at the Toddling Town with Mr Longtail within about a week according to present plans Whirlaway has apparently thrown off his slight indisposition of the weekend The affable Missourian expected to have him resume his training on the Belmont surface by the time you read this However there do not appear to be any events in Aqueducts book in which Blenheim ns extraordinarily durable son might start previous to his expedition to the Homewood prairie Opulent opportunities in a veritable horn of plenty abundance await Whirlaway at Chicago where Ben Lindheimer increased the Stars and Stripes Arlington and Washington Park Handicaps to 50000 added apiece In addition Warren Wrights famed Devils red may be represented at the combined WashingtonArlington seasons by Ocean Wave in the Classic and American Derby each endowed with 50000 and by those formidable sisters MarKell and Nellie L in the plethora of filly and mare stakes seven in num ¬ ber ranging attractively in added value from 5000 to 10000 It is an exceptionally wellbalanced string stringOcean Ocean Wave fired for a splint while mending from the injury that precluded his accepting for the Kentucky Derby has essayed no fast work since opening up the morning of that 75000 May Day classic But Jones observes He never was thrown out of training completely and has been going under saddle I can know more about his Classic prospects when he commences breezing Probably that will be after his arrival at the Chicago course courseNellie Nellie L heroine of the Kentucky Oaks and Acorn and MarKell who defeated Vagrancy then corroborated the evidence of that showy performance by capturing the Top Flight comprise a fascinating pair They like distance races Jones observed MarKell may be a bit quicker thart Nellie L because she has four good legs under her You know the threeyearold filly did not get a very good start in life in that respect respectIt It develops this twain now have a juvenile brother by Blenheim II Nellie Flag at Calumet Farm He also was shortchanged by an unkind fate when he was foaled unsound but may it is earnestly hoped outgrow this sufficiently to join the horses in training later on As Jones recalls it Nellie Flag now has a yearling filly by Bull Lea at Wrights handsomely appointed Calumet Whether or not Ocean Wave can recover his best form is something which must await time to answer Soft footing is this photogenic chestnuts forte it would seem He improved in such going to capture the Blue Grass Stakes and the Derby Trial TrialIt It has always seemed to TIS that a good deal of the credit for Whirlaways rise to the highest earnings brackets is owing to the skill of the expansive Misspurian who trains him Only for a monumental patience and applied psyciiology Whirlaway might readily have developed the characteristics of a mustang It should surprise nobody were he to zoom his earnings beyond 600000 before snow flies He was training forwardly previous to his attack of indigestion indigestionDetroit Detroit proposes to initiate its spic and span new steeplechase course on June 29 according to advices received by the NSHAs Freddy Parks proficient racing secretary handicapper of the colorful hedge phase of the turf sport in the Empire State Willie duPont who is perhaps Americas foremost authority in such matters con ¬ cocted the specifications for the Detroit Fair Grounds course That is a recommen ¬ dation to steeplechase men Perhaps the Michigan track will lure some of the large quantity of hedgehoppers who have provided such zestful entertainment thus far in the New York season during the lapse in this phase of competition here when Empire Citys transplanted meeting is in progress The Queens County Jockey Club will contribute a total of 7775 more to alleviating the stress of the times to the American thoroughbred breeding industry during its 18day summer season Associations in other sectors have manifested a degree of encouraging interest in this highly necessary program of assistance to bloodstock breeders It is understood Ben Lindheimer the sagacious manager of Chicagos Arlington and Washington Park meetings is pondering a two per cent premium to breeders Were this rate adopted nationally and we think it should be some 200000 would be spreadamong the thoroughbred nurseries this year w wNow Now is the time for racing to take definite action on this economic proposition for to procrastinate would create an extremely dangerous situation For weeks now the gossips have amused themselves by assuming a knowing expression and hinting rather broadly that Count Fleet is developing osselets The exray photos show the bony structure and tendons of his underpinning to be as clean as the proverbial whistle It is just that The Count has unusual bone So much indeed it seems to have created illusions of extraneous growth among clinically minded observers observersThe The filling in his wrenched ankle is responding steadily to trainer Don Camerons ministering and all trace of this mishap will have disappeared within a few days No decision has been reached as to precisely when the brown wonder will journey to Washington Park incidentally He will receive some of his prep for the coveted Arlington classic at Belmont Park ParkJohn John Marsch is the proud owner of another swift juvenile this wartime turf season of 1943 in Occupations brother Occupy a son of Bull Dog Miss Bunting Occupy you may recall was mentioned in this pillar of whimsy and stuff during the Churchill Downs meeting as having outworked other Kentucky kindergarteners He earned his racing diploma by an emphatic seven lengths in his debut Saturday at Lincoln Fields FieldsOccupy Occupy will endeavor to emulate his brother in the Arlington and Wash ¬ ington Park versions of the Futurities He is strikingly like Occupation as to conformation It will be recalled rather vividly by New York racegoers the brother and sister Whichone and Mother Goose captured memorable renewals of the Belmont Futurity so there is a precedent for Occupy
