Lincoln Handicap Lures 18 Eligibles Good Bid, Colonel Read, Darien and Take Wing in ,000 Closing-Day Event STICKNEY, 111., June 18.— H. E. Jacobys Good Bid. winner last Saturday of the La Salle Handicap, and 17 other three-year-olds and older horses have been made eligible for the ,000 Lincoln Handicap which will feature the Lincoln Fields Jockey Clubs last program at Hawthorne this Saturday. The La Salle was a test of a mile and three-sixteenths while the Lincoln will be decided over a mile and one-quarter and it represents the last of six stakes the Lincoln Fields management offered this spring. Good Bid, who favored the muddy track which prevailed last Saturday, literally ran away with the La Salle, taking a big lead early in the race and keeping it, and since he came out of that engagement little the worse for wear he promises to be a powerful contender for first honors this week-end. Also standing out prominently among the Lincoln nominations which racing secretary W. R. Dahlstrom announced today are Mrs. Clyde Troutts Take Wing, who was second in La Salle, and Hyman Fried-bergs Bolos Choice, who was third. The Happy Hour Farms Devalue and Mrs. Janet Hoaglins Amalka were the only other starters in the La Salle and they, too, have been made eligible for Lincoln Fields final feature. Arrivals From Kentucky Two other interesting entries are the Indian Rocks Stables Darien and Bonds Mill Stables Colonel Read, who arrived in Chicago over the week-end from Louisville. Colonel Read is no stranger here, for he was shipped here several weeks ago for the Steger Handicap in which he ran fourth to Harriet Sue, Espino Gold and Icangetit. Some of the other candidates for the Lincoln are the Brolite Farms Challenge Me, Swanee River Stables Corydon. Jim Sands Latent and C. H. Durschs Twixt.
