The Joliet annually is the first stake race in Illinois for juveniles. The distance is five furlongs. Twenty-four hours in advance it appears that more than a dozen of the 36 nominees would be named through the entry box" tomorrow morning. Stake winners eligible "make this running shape up as one of the best renewals of the event, to say nothing of the good maidens and promising non-starters who are among the nominees. Among, the latter contingent is" Mrs. E. E. Dale Shaffers Fiddle, a highly regarded colt by Roman out of Fairday. Numbered among the probable starters are the stakes winners Mighty Moment and Happy Carrier, the former owned and trained by Milton Resseguet, the latter owned by W. H. Venneman and trained by R. A. Mattingly. Mighty Moment won on January 1. He followed up that victory by winning one division of the Proteus Stakes at New Orleans in February. Happy Carrier won one division of the Lafayette Stakes at Keeneland. Happy Carrier is likely to have the Heliopolis colt, Dean Cavy, as a running mate. Other winners among the prospective starters for the Joliet include Mrs. M. G. Bockmans Prince Marque; Chiles and Kislins Speedrite; D. J. Gleesons Down Yonder; Mrs. Harry Trotseks Lead Pad.
