Baltimore Md May 9 Mary ¬ land racegoers may see 1952s champion threeyearold filly in action on the Old Hilltop this weekend when Calumets Kentucky Oaks winner Real Delight meets J W Browns Acorn heroine Parading Lady in a small but classy field of five jiamed for the 20000 BlackEyed Susan These two are demonstrably the best of the division East and West this spring Opposing them are Edgar Zantkers En Fleur Puckety Farms FagaLa and F Eugene Dixon Jrs Dinewisely but if any of this venturesome trio is successful it probably will surprise most of the audience audienceReal Real Delights showy form and the com ¬ bination of Calumet Ben Jones and Eddie Arcaro who last weekend captured the Derby Oaks and Debutante in 48 hours is expected to find the daughter of Bull Lea a staunch

RaceContinued Continued from Pag One Oneher her lone defeat Parading Lady is rated by no less an authority than John B Camp ¬ bell as the smartest of the eastern fillies and in the Acorn came from far back in an unwieldly field to take the honors The dusky daughter of the Australian cham pian Bernborough impresses as one who will get the mile and a furlong of the BlackEyed Susan comfortably enough It must remain for the race to determine if she fillyThe has more class than the western filly The BlackEyed Susan is a revival of the Pimlico Oaks under a new more Apropos and original name that of the state flower It is a sort of filly division of the Preak ¬ ness and was added to the roster of the Maryland Jockey Clubs stakes last spring when it was decided at a mile and three sixtenths and was captured by Discreet Maj Gen Milton A Reckord this year reduced it to a mile and a furlong doubled its 10000 added value and the result is a race of perhaps more significance than any previous threeyearold filly stake this season since it brings together the most accomplished members of the age and sex for the first time Under the terms of the race each of the entrants carries 121 pounds If all the quintet start the winner will receive a net purse of 16500 with 4000 to the runnerup 2000 third and 1000 fourth fourthReal Real Delight also is engaged in the Coaching Club American Oaks on May 24 at Belmont and may emulate her stable mate Wistful who now has the distinction of being the only winner of the Fillies Triple Crown She is more clever than Wistful though she did not win the Ken ¬ tucky Oaks as easily The track was fast and the weather delightful when entries were taken though the forecastls for scat ¬ tered showers this evening Parading Lady runs in any going but there is no mud form on Real Delight up to now nowReal Real Delight and FagaLa had pipe openers for the race this morning and the former indicated she brought her speed along from Louisville by the facile fashion in which she aired a half in 49 FagaLa went over the same distance in 52 breez ¬ ing No rider has been named for FagaLa but Carroll Bierman will handle En Fleur with George Hettinger on Dinewisely and the familiar James Hardinbrook Oh Parad ¬ ing Lady The New Orleansowned filly has won six of 10 starts this season taking a second and two thirds with the Acorn her most distinguished performance She beat En Fleur in the Belmont event The latter is best recommended by a convincing tally in an allowance race back at Hialeah Dinewisely was second to the older Roman Miss in the Black Helen and FagaLa was a winner at Gulfstream Park The small field tends toward a well run raceand one in which post positions are of little con ¬ sequence sequenceRacing Racing secretary Charles McLennan has surrounded the filly Preakness with a supporting card of overnighters that prom ¬ ise additional entertainment and luncheon reservations suggest a large weakend at tendance if the weather
