Maxiekin Tops Eight In Highland Handicap Rousher Mare Out After Third Straight Fairmount Win Today COLLINSVILLE. 111., June 18.— With two of the three six-furlong handicaps presented each Saturday of the Fairmount Park meeting in her bag, Maxiekin, Sol Roushers consistent daughter of Jacopo, will go after her third tomorrow when she opposes seven others in the Highland Handicap. The Inaugural Handicap went to Sales Talk and the past two Saturdays witnessed the Rousher mare wearing down the leaders during the run through the stretch to garner the major award. She is equally at home on an "off" as well as a dry track, for she splashed her way to her initial triumph and last Saturday her victorious effort was over a fast track. Naturally, with such a fine record, established at the expense of five of her tomorrows opponents. Maxiekin will shoulder the top impost of 114 pounds. Tom B. Youngs Doorman and E. B. McAtees Leslie Jarvis will make their local seasons bow in the Highland, the former under 104 pounds, and Leslie Jarvis gets in under the minimum assignment of 100 pounds. John Greeners Clarksville, who finished second to Sales Talk in the Inaugural, was unplaced the following Saturday and second to Maxiekin in the Annapolis of last week, and Mrs. James Chesneys Franks Boy will carry 108 pounds each. Franks Boy was fourth in the Annapolis and in that effort carried 110 pounds, while Clarksville shouldered the same burden he will have up tomorrow. Miss Ethel will tote less poundage than she did last Saturday. In the Annapolis she was the high weight of 112 pounds and instead of conceding two pounds to Maxiekin tomorrow she will receive seven pounds from her. Bashful Duck Goes in Headliner A victim of interference last Saturday, Mrs. Janet Hoaglins Bashful Duck will be making his second start in nearly two years and he gets in under 106 pounds. He earned 108 pounds last week and that race should put him ready for his best effort. He is coupled with Doorman. Gold Mike, who was third in the Annapolis, has the same assignment of 104 pounds. Supporting the Highland Handicap is the Florissant Purse, a run of one mile and 70 yards and for which a field of eight was j named. All of the contestants will get in under a feather, the top assignment being 102 pounds and it will be carried by Meet-sum, Sun Pharos, Doubtful and Jim Pat. Miss Militant and Hard Lu. coupled as C. Williamson entry, will shoulder 101 pounds each. I Lov Bridges burden will be 99 pounds, and Carbonate will get in under 92 pounds. A. S. Higgins Sun Pharos was the runner-up to Khaygram in an allowance race at the same distance last Saturday, and Miss Militant third. Jim Pat was unplaced. Humes and Sparrows Doubtful contested the Annapolis, and Carbonate was defeated by Be Calm and Miss Advice in a six-furlong sprint the same day. Winner of two races here, Hard Lu has confined her racing to the low claiming division and it will be Meetsums first effort in some time. Seven three-year-olds, including the winners Wishihadagal and Miss Marfa, will run one mile and 70 yards in the third j event and eleven lowly platers comprise the I field for the seventh race. The other num- i bers attracted overflowing fields.
