I., June 26.— With E. R. Bradleys Black Helen, heroine of the American Derby, and A. G. Vanderbilts Discovery, holder of two worlds racing record, pointed towards the second running of the Narra-gansett Special, Walter E. OHara, managing director of the Rhode Island course, is confident that the value of the important stake will be 0,000. The conditions of the Special call for 5,-000 in added money and "another 5,000, all to go to the winner, will be added by tha Narragansett Racing . Association, if there are among the starters two or more horses which are winners in 1935 of either the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness, the Belmont, the American Derby, or the Arlington Classic." Four of these races have been run, Belair Studs Omaha winning the first three named, and Black Helen taking the American Derby in Chicago last Saturday. Racing secretary Pat Horgan is expecting definite word from E. R. Bradley within a few days. Unofficial advices from the West assure him that the Black Toney filly will surely invade New England. George Tappen, chief assistant to trainer Jim Fitz-I simmons, of the Belair Stud, states that present plans by William Woodward will send Omaha up from New York, while A. G. Vanderbilt names Discovery as a certain starter, barring training accidents. Last year Discovery set a new worlds record of 1:55 for a mile and three-sixteenths in the running of the Rhode Island Handi-i cap at Narragansett, and last Saturday set a new worlds mark of 1:48% in winning the mile and a furlong Brooklyn Handicap at Aqueduct. Roman Soldier, beaten favorite in the American Derby, is expected to be a supple- mentary entry in the Special, announced OHara today. The Sachsenmaier and Reuter colt will attempt to redeem himself for his defeats in the Florida and the Washington Dcrbys at the heels of Black Helen, and the clash between this pair will be one of the highlights of the rich Narragansett prize. The full list of nominations, which closed May 27 with twenty-seven, is: F. M. Alger, Jr.s Azucar, winner of the 00,000 Santa Anita Handicap; Mrs. Walter E. OHaras Howard and New Deal, Belair Studs Omaha and Faireno, leading three year-old of 1932; A. C. Bostwicks Mate, redoubtable contemporary of Equipoise and Twenty Grand; the Brookmeade Stables Cavalcade, king of the 1934 three-year-olds; Mrs. F. A.
