Sabaean, who started off in 1951 with five straight wins, has been post-ward four times at this meeting and earned one second place, that to Roman Bath in the Crete Handicap. Kosadus, winner of the Inaugural Handicap, was fifth in the Mister Morgan-Inseparable race; Mr. Fox finished third to Circus Clown and Provocative, and Owens Cuts is an Irish-bred, who is expected to improve.
