HARLEM NATIONAL ENTRIES. One hundred and thirteen of the best handicap horses in the country are entered in the Harlem National Handicap, the 0,000 stake which will be run for the first time on June 6. The list of eligibles to the race, which the club hopes to make one of the great turf fixtures of the country, was made public "Wednesday by Secretary Nathan-son. In addition to the good material of the west, which, from the value of the stake was expected to be listed for this event, there are several of the high class horses from the east. Standard Bearer, Blues and Lord Badge are the principal ones nominated by eastern owners. Standard Bearer is owned by Henry T. Oxnard, the sugar magnate and is nominated for the Derby. His entry in the National and Clark Stakes may be regarded as indicating that the horse will be a starter in the Derby, as both these Harlem stakes are run just before the -great Washington-Park race. Blues is owned by Frank Farrell and the present intention is to race the great son of Sir Dixon Bonnie Blue IL during June and July on the Chicago tracks. Lord Badge is owned by W. L. Oliver, an eastern man who formerly raced in Chicago. The entries to the Harlem National show a larger number of three-year-olds than was to have been expected for a stake run so early in the season. Forty-four of the 113 entries, or more than one-third of the total number are those of three-year-olds; thirty-six are of four-year-olds and thirty-two are of five-year-olds and upward. Among the three-year-olds are Claude, Savable, High Chancellor, Gilfain, which as a two-year-old "beat McChesney in an .all-aged race, Skilful, Bardolph Sinner Simon, Gregor K., Topsoil, Witfull and others that are American Derby entries. One of the crack three-year-olds that is not a Derby entry is Epicure, which has raced on the coast this winter and shown to be a colt of good quality. Among the four-year-olds there are Corrigan, Burns and Waterhouses sterling son of Sain Ada Reese; Abe Frank and Aladdin, G. C. Bennetts oft-time stake winners; Bessie Spahr, Fred Cooks speedy mare; Terra Firma, Wyeth, Runnels; Red Comyn, P. Dunnes English horse; McChesney, the pride of the west and rival of the great Hermis; Lucien Appleby, that remarkable campaigner of last season; Jordan, Allan-a-Dale, T. C. McDowells grand specimen of a race horse; Owenton, Hoodwink and Belles Commoner, reported to have come into their present age in superior form; Esherin, Otis, Old Hutch, Glen Water and Inventor. Among those in the older division are Sidney Lucas, American Derby winner of 1900; Golden Wishes, an English importation; The Lady, Flying Torpedo, Favonius, Mo-narka. Six Shooter, The Conqueror IL, Hernando and Water Cure.
