I B IMiBiFi «l mf Tremont Also on Same Card With 5,000 Aqueduct Race WILLIAM WOODWARD— Who has had four members of his Belair Stud victorious in the Dwyer, will have Tip-Toe as a representative in todays renewal of the famed Aqueduct prize. Princequillo, Tip-Toe and Vincentive in Route Event — Splendid Supporting Program AQUEDUCT, L. I., N. Y.. June 18.— The Dwyer and the Tremont, two of the Queens County Jockey Clubs most coveted summer annuals, decorate the week-ends competition at Aqueduct. A well-balanced field of 11 is named overnight for the 5,000 added Dwyer of a mile and a quarter and, on paper, this array of fugitives from Count Fleet makes for a singularly wide-open betting race and one that may develop an interesting if insignificant contest. The group passing through the entry box for the Dwyer represent so little deviation from the norm in their capabilities that none has earned an impost of more than 110 pounds by the conditions of the stake. For instance, there is a widespread lack of certainty whether Boone Hall Stables Princequillo, Greentrees Famous Victory, Ben Whitakers Pops Pick and Belair Studs Tip-Toe shall be the "tote" favorite. And nobody would be much surprised were the winner to come from among W. L. Branns Vincentive, King Ranchs Eye for Eye. Glen Riddles Strategic, Foxcatchers Fairy Manhurst, Mrs. Henry Finchs Modest Lad, Beverly Bogerts Deseronto and W-L Ranchs Bill Sickle, who complete the field. If all these evenly-matched band accept, the victor will have amassed the faintly incongruous sum of 0,350 net. In the light of the ancient turf adage, better spectacles are presented in the absence of stand-out performers or big "name" horses. r This Dwyer should be something to remember. When neither Deseronto nor Modest Lad were withdrawn from todays Goshawk Purse, it became apparent that the actual starting I field hardly can number more than i nine. I Lucky Draw in Juvenile Stake The Tremont, conversely, has attracted . small field of an unexpectedly promised j five two-year-old colts and geldings in a skirmish over five and one-half furlongs ] for a prize of ,000 added, and these include George D. Wideners Lucky Draw, ] hero of the Youthful and Juvenile, who appears , a solid favorite. LMcky Draw carries top weight of 122 pounds and essays | to spot from five to fourteen to such promising i kindergarteners as Joe Browns Rav-enala, Longchamps Grant Rice, Victor ] Emanuels Surrogate and Mill Rivers Captains Aide. The Jack High gelding has i trained famously, however, and it is conceivable that he holds a class edge over | this group which is not to be counterbalanced i by the difference in weights imposed ] in the Tremonts conditions. If the Dwyer field is extraordinarily 1 lacking in a quality commensurate with the 1 stakes prestige, there will be quite a 1 lot of class present in other of the weekends events. For instance, there is the I ,000 added Fayette Handicap, at seven J furlongs, which has attracted Boysy, Pictor, t Apache. Bright,Willie, Ariel Lad and 1942s sprint king, Doublrab, not to mention the Genie Handicap, a run of a mile and a 1 furlong for grade "B" performers, which i is endowed with ,500 and drew a quintet comprising Vagrancy, 1942 turf queen; Don ] Bingo, upset winner of the fabled Suburban I Handicap; Bolingbroke, holder of the Continued on Page Thirty-Two I I 1 ! . | | j I | DwyerandTremont At Aqueduct Today Eleven Seek Famous 5,000 Route Fixture — Lucky Draw Tops Five in Juvenile Race Continued from Page One American mile and one-half time record; Trierarch, and Lochinvar. The tweedy Chase and Hunt set will be out in full force to witness the second in the series of United Hunts Steeplechase Handicaps over an exacting route of "about two miles and a half." There are 10 familiar entertainers through the infield in this affair, including the erstwhile championship contender Ossabaw, who has retrograded to some degree, but still is exciting to watch. The Queens County Jockey Clubs secretariat may point out accurately, as a point of pardonable pride, that only one of the afternoons eight contests attaches the claiming clause and that half of the offerings either are started directly before the stands or provide two runs by these structures, being at distances beyond one mile. Despite the sad estate to which the Dwyer has fallen this summer, so far as it concerns its importance in the 1943 scheme of racing, there is something of interest on this program for those who may be interested by a promise of zestful thoroughbred sport in any of its various phases. An attendance of more than 30,000 is confidently expected with a fair weather break and more New York "tote" records may go by the boards. Princequillo Won Last Outing Most of the Dwyer field have been beating one another. Princequillo qualified by defeating the older Bolingbroke recently. Back at Belmont, Tip-Toe whipped Pops Pick and in his latest sally Vincentive was inches off Slide Rule in the Peter Pan while heading Famous Victory. The last named was since a beaten favorite at Aqueduct. Modest Lad is a winner at the Queens County Jockey Club meeting. Fairy Man- hurst and Deseronto have been in futile pursuit of Count Fleet and either might improve sharply in this company. In brief, one may explore the records and work tabs on this field for hours without arriving at any clear conception of the racers form and it simply must remain for the running of the stake itself to unscramble the maze of evidence both for and against the entrants.
