* Route Stars Battle .up. . . ^^^ ^ In Tiirf .•tJLJL. • JL »W.JL JL Soflday, April H, 1981 O The AflZOM ftfipnMIc X Moon, Try It Duel By toUSHAN LAZOV1CII There'll be plenty of questions answered at Turf Paradise this afternoon when the field goes postward in today s sixth running of the $7,500*dded Turf Paradise Handicap—the big race for the big horses. 1 Ji« e d 1 "*? 1 r £ u , te st ? rs on the grounds have entered the 1 l/16-mlle handicap which climaxes the season for the older The rich purse will gross $8,350. HERE ARE some of the questions which turf fans have been asking since the nominations for the big event were made and the entries were taken to determine the field: 1. Can Mr. Vale successfully carry the leaden impost of 130 pounds to his fifth consecutive victory against the best distance runners in the Southwest? 2. Will Little Moon Steal such a-blg lead tfifJt the others 'woiv't be able to overcome him in the stretch? 3. Is Try It the same horse he was when he won this race in year's $7,500-added Arizona Downs Handicap at this same time of year? 4. Are there any If the others who are capable of upsetting the top trio listed above? MR. VALE, a galloping grey which ran off three, impressive wins 'here, including the important one In the Downs 'Cap earlier this season, will be asked to carry the heaviest impost ever assigned to a horse here. After leaving here, Mr. Vale went to Sunland Park where he humbled the best there to run his streak to four straight. He was running then for his new owner, L. R. French Jr. of Odessa, Tex., who thought enough of the well- bred son 'A Royal Vale-Santa Stefana to pay $25,000 for him. With his regular jockey, Joe Sherman, returning to do the saddle honors, Mr. Vale came into his own here and definitely likes the track. He's already won $12,742 this season and his chances of carrying 130 pounds to victory appear good. , FRANK BROPHY'S L i t tie Moon, which will run as a strong entry with Fred , Hersig's 'Miss Seven, has flashed the form which made him the winningest Arizona- <* »' '""« "I* «* that trainer Lyman Rollins has him razor sharp. Little Moon get's a 10-pound concession from Mr. Vale and that's a lot when you consider their capabilities. Bradley Rollins, who assumed the new role of a husband yesterday, will ride the 7- year-old son of Magnificent Moonshine. * Pretty Mrs. D. R. Thompson's Try It romped home an easy winner In his last start here, winning by 2 lengths and indicating he's plenty fit to test this field. TRY IT WAS one of the top handicap horse's in the Rocky Mountain circuit last season .and picked up checks totaling $23,695 to prove he could run. The distance is his forte and he's a fiill brother to Cornhusker, which won a $100,000-added Santa Anita Handicap. Jockey Sonny Ray Williams makes up most of Try It's 122-pound package. Little Moon and Try It have not faced Mr. Vale.this season. The others have and wish they hadn't. The possibility of an upset by one of the others seems remote but anything can happen in a horse race. Miss Seven adds a strong hand to the entry's chances, herself a highly capable performer as well as the co-holder of the track's one mile record. OF THE OTHERS, the Estate of W. J. Lewis Jr.'s Vic Mon and Ray Seeley's Net Man appear to be the best. , __ Completing the field , are the Paul Oliver trained entry of Bill Luke's Wear And Tear and Bogle Farm's Bang's Victory, R. S. Flinn's Martial Rule, and Horace Thompson's Spinney. .Regardless of the outcome, the racfl shapes up as one of the finest distance affairs in the track's history. First post is 1:30 with a! 10-race program awaiting the fans. SURE TRY IT—Sandy Sams posed with Mrs. D. R. Thompson's Try It, one of the chief threats in today's $7,500-added Turf Paradise Handicap-the richest race of the meeting for the handicap stars.
