« t—rr HARRY TROTSEK — Sent out the veteran sprinter Porters Broom to register a ■ popular victory on yesterdays Lincoln Fields program. Eight Sophomores in Sun Beau Purse « Eternal Moon Is Topweight at 117 . Cowdin Stakes Winner and * Stuyvesant Were Bang-Up Foes in Last Engagements HAWTHORNE, Cicero, HI., May 20.— The mid-week program at Hawthorne is made up of nine events, including triple features, making it an outstanding card for the current Lincoln Fields meeting, now in progress in its second week. There is also much worth while to the features. Two of the races are fashioned for three-year-olds, while the other one is for two-year-old colts and geldings. Both of the three-year-old events are to be run at six furlongs. The Lady Broadcast Purse is for fillies exclusively, and attracted eleven. The top feature, however, is the Sun Beau Purse, for which eight were entered. Four nominees for Lincoln Fields most important annual event, the Peabody Memorial Stakes, which will be run on Decoration Day, May 30, are named. The Peabody candidates to be seen in the Sun Beau Purse are Emerald Hill Stables Eternal Moon, Red Top Farms Charger, Mrs. Emil Denemarks Stuyvesant, and Mrs. Sayde Smiths Our Beauty. Completing the field will be M. H. VanBergs McGrathiana, and the fillies Pines of Rome, Fancy Step and Bella Figura, owned by P. A. B. Wide-ner, HI., H. G. Bockman, and Brownell Combs, respectively. Pines of Rome and Bella Figura will run coupled as an entry. Won Cowdin Last Year Eternal Moon, who was winner of last years Cowdin, Stuyvesant and Our Beauty all started in the Blackwood Purse on opening day at this meeting, May 12. Stuyvesant appeared to have that race won until the last stride when he was beaten a nose by Pak. Eternal Moon was third. Both Stuyvesant and Our Beauty have won this season, the latter accounting for two at the New Orleans Fair Grounds, while Stuyvesant won at Churchill Downs in April. Red Charger has started in five this year. He was beaten a nose by Alls Fair in an allowance race at Santa Anita, then finished second to Whither .in the Los Feliz Stakes at the California track. McGrathiana was a good winner last year. He was purchased by VanBerg in mid-season from Tom B. Young, who bought the colt out of the yearling sales of 1950, and who thought enough of him to name him after the famous farm of his equally famous father, the late Milton Young, one of the outstanding American breeders of all time, owner of the great sire, Hanover, and breeder of another great sire, Broomstick, among the many horses at McGrathiana. The farm, incidentally, was established by H. P. McGrg,th, who won the first Kentucky Derby in 185 with the little .red horse, Aristides. Of the three fillies in the Sun Beau Purse, Fancy Step is the only winner this season. She won two in a row at New Orleans. Bella Figura, a daughter of Count Fleet, out of Myrtlewoods brilliant daughter, Miss Dogwood, has not started this season, but was one of the better juvenile fillies last year, when she won three of seven starts. Pines Qf Rome, by Roman, out of Seven Pines, by Haste, therefore a half-sister to Misty Isle, finished second in two of her three starts this year. She was beaten by Espy at Keeneland and by Tis Joev at Churchill Downs. The vll fillies in the Lady Broadcast Purse are Lexbrook Stables Nante Glo, T. and W. Stewarts My Henny, Joseph Simons Hopeido, H. J. Houghs Princess Ann, Ray Freearks Saxon Charm, W. J. Schmidts Hedgebill, F. and J. Bogdans Not Rushing, Mrs. Louis J.
