■ — — ■ i . ■ ——,■■- i — Polynesian and Pavot Both Named for 5,000 Jersey CAMDEN, N. J., June 19. — Polynesian, winner of the Withers and Preakness, is one of three leading colts nominated for the 5,000 Jersey, one of the major numbers slated for decision at Garden State Park during the 50-day meeting which opens on Friday, July 13. His presence means the local interest in the stake will run much higher than heretofore, as the son of Unbreakable and Black Polly is Philadelphia-owned, being the property of Mrs. P. A. B. Widener, daughter-in-law of the late Joseph E. Widener, internationally famed as a sportsman and art collector. Pavot, the Jersey-bred colt who dominated the two-year-old field in 1944 with eight victories in as many starts, seven of them in stakes, is another Jersey hopeful. Horsemen agree that he has not shown his true form in two 1945 appearances, both of which resulted in defeats.
