June 5. — Another mediocre Aqueduct-at-Belmont program is in prospect tomorrow, with the ,000 Williamsburgh Handicap, for class "D" three-year-olds at a mile and a sixteenth, being the richest offering. This afiair will be seventh on the program, while the normal feature spot is occupied by the ,500 Rockaway Purse at six furlongs This dash is also for class "D" horses. Only six have been named for the Williamsburgh. headed by First Pebble with 117 pounds. The Orange Stable colt has not been out since May 6, when he closed with a rush to win a mile test here that was run in the slow time of 1 : 41 over a fast track First Pebble will be opposed by Daralet, 115: Uncle Mac and Meltonian, 110 each-Gallavant. 106. and Prop Girl, 105. Of tnis group, Uncle Mac also won his last start at a mile, running the distance in 1:40 on a sloppy strip. Prop Girl has also won a mie test here, then finished fairly well in a sprint. Arcaro to Ride Daralet Daralet was a beaten choice last time out, finishing a fair third back of Jackamine and Colonial Rose and before that was second back of Manor Lad. He will probably oe the choice tomorrow with Eddie Arcaro n the saddle. Job Dean Jessop will ride Uncle Mac, while Johnny Adams has been assigned to First Pebble. There is no rider as yet for Prop Girl. No less than 19 have been entered over night for the Rockaway. The best of this overloaded field appear to be Harvard Square. Burning Dream, Comanche Peak. Bright Willie and Flying Tartar. Five of the 19 are on the eligible list, and among these are Republican and Bellwether who are not to be ignored if they break into the starting field. Maine Chance Farms War Fan, a half-sister to Lord Boswell and leading candidate for Saturdays Astoria Stakes, dazzled dockers this morning when she skipped five furlongs in :593/5, handily. William Helis Miss Kimo, another well-regarded Astoria candidate, went the same distance in 1 M%. while Foxcatcher Farms Sunmont was timed in 1:02. A large field of fillies is in prospect for Saturdays 0,000 test at five and a half furlongs, with at least a dozen, and possibly twice that number appearing likely to scamper down the Widener chute.
