George D. Widener Stable To Race 10 Head at Camden CAMDEN, N. J., June 13.— George D. Widener, master of nearby Erdenheim Farm, Pennsylvanias foremost thoroughbred breeding establishment, will have 10 horses quartered at Garden State Park during the 50-day meeting which opens Friday, July 13. Last year this sportsman accounted for the 5,000 Jersey Handicap with the clever three-year-olds Lucky Draw, while Frere Jacques was a good winner under his banner at this point. Mrs. George Widener had a smart filly at the local track last season in the homebred Night Class, a daughter of Rhodes Scholar who won her only two starts here. Recently a winner in brisk company at Belmont Park, her first major chance of the Garden State session will be the 0,000 Colonial Handicap, a six-furlong jaunt for fillies and mares. Frere Jacques, another 1945 Belmont Park winner, also will be back, but Lucky Draw will be an absentee, having been retired for the season. As usual, there are some likely newcomers in the George Widener collection. Concerning these, more will be heard later.
