R. I., June 5.— Six top- flight three-year-olds will clash at Narra- gansett Park tomorrow in the 0,000 War r Bond Invitation Purse. Not since the mem- - orable Alsab-Whirlaway match race has s there been such obvious interest among ? regular patrons and local turfmen as in a this six-furlong special. Track officials are e making preparations to entertain an un- - usually large mid-week assemblage. Colts s and geldings are to take up 115 pounds s each in the dash, while the lone filly, Mrs. Betty Froelichs Snow Maid, is to shoulder r 110 pounds. Mrs. Weston W. Adams Kewey Dee, vic-e - tor in the 1944 renewal of the Miles Standish ti Stakes and winner of an allowance race at t the local track this year, is expected to rule e choice over his five rivals in the feature. ;. Kewey Dee turned in a splendid perform-_ ance on May 23 when he defeated Joseph n Tuccis Nowadays by a short margin and d established a new Gansett track record of 1 :0423 for five and one-half furlongs. The Adams colt, a son of Okapi — Marys s Last, lowered the course mark after a bt-£; terly contested stretch duel involving Now-80 - adays and Beldine, the hope of R. B. Carlo - roll in the Wednesday headliner. With Bel-dine - and Nowadays under silks in the War ,r 4 r - s ? a e - s s r - ti t e ;. n d s - - - ,r ♦Bond Purse either may turn the tables on their former conqueror. Nowadays, however, cannot be counted out against Kewey Dee, and his recent outings are such that he may prove the horse to beat. William Norton stated this morning that his charge has trained well and that jockey Johnny Gilbert will be on hand to ride Nowadays. The Tucci star, beaten but a scant distance in his last duel with Kewey Dee, should be dangerous under such handling as he is sure to receive from the capable Gilbert. Beldine was third in the May 23 race, but, like Kewey Dee, he was making his first ap- pearance of the current season. Since then Beldine met some of the better-class older sprinters. In the Bristol Handicap on Me-;. morial Day he was making a game bid when bumped by Castleman and knocked out of contention. Beldine displayed high speed last September when winning the James H. Connors Memorial Stakes at Narragansett Park, where Kewey Dee finished fourth, with Snow Maid and Paper Mill toiling in the rear. Glen Felkners Paper Mill has made but one start this year. On that occasion he finished second to the seasoned Hammer-f Lock here on May 31 after cutting out the | early pace. That race undoubtedly served as a tightener for tomorrows contest. A. F. Walls Tiger Man and Snow Maid are hard-hitting stretch runners and may be well served by the fast pace that it bound to be set in the early stages of th« special.
