Irish Wit Well Regarded In Wilke Purse at Beulah Sir Fanar Also Making Seasonal Bow atTrack in Mid-DistanceTest By HUGH J. McGUIRE Staff Correspondent BEULAH PARK, Grove City, Ohio, May 15. — A sprint of six furlongs for four-year- . olds and older carrying claiming tags of ,000, is given top billing on tomorrows program here. Titled the R. Wilke Purse, the headliner attracted eight rivals who „ hold the promise of providing a keenly fought tussle when they meet in the seventh race. Another contest that shapes up interestingly despite the presence of only six opponents is the mile and a sixteenth sixth race. The eighth and final race of the day is at one mile. In the feature Mrs. L. Goldmans Irish Wit appears nicely placed. The sdh of Challedon has not been seen under silks at this meeting but dockers report him ready for a winning performance and his best effort could find him leading home his rivals in the Wilke. Another who is making his seasonal debut here is J. Hein-leins Sir Fanar, a capable sort when fit, and he should give a good account of himself. The field is completed by D. and R. Bart-letts Wise Dough, C. H. Youngs Whirl Off, E. F. Lovelaces Roaming Oscar, Mrs. V. L. Guessfords Mr. Micawber, Mrs. J. F. Dalys French Navy and J. E. Meyers Monomoy. The seventh race should provide an interesting meeting between F. J. Wilsons Woodmore, a recent winner over this course and. J. Englishs Waurika, who was a good second here the other day. This pair might find stiff competition from Al Smithas Duskys First, who was withdrawn from a race because of heavy track conditions to wait for placing such as this.
