• Lincoln Handicap Has 15 Nominees Volcanic, Dr. Ole Nelson, Pur Sang, Seaward and Ruhe Named for Route Feature HAWTHORNE, Cicero, HI., June 9. — Three former winners of the Hawthorne Gold Cup, a winner of the Peabody Memorial and two horses who have won stakes at the current meeting, are among the 15 nominees for the mile and a quarter Lincoln Handicap, final feature event of the successful 1952 Lincoln Fields season, which comes to a close here at Hawthorne next Saturday. The forthcoming week-end renewal of this Lincoln Fields fixture on closing day will be its twenty-fifth running since the race was inaugurated in 1926. Walmac Farms Volcanic, M. A. and Roy Saffirs Dr. Ole Nelson and Hasty House Farms Seaward won the Hawthorne Gold Cup in 1949, 1950, and 1951, respectively. Reuben Kowals Pur Sang took the twenty-third running of the Peabody Memorial in 1951. Mikel Farms False won the Crete-Handicap, first stake race of the current meeting on opening day. Hasty House Farms Ruhe captured the inaugural running of the Narcissus Handicap here on May 31. All of them are among the nominees for the 0,000 Lincoln Handicap. Hasty House Farm, owned by Mr. and Mrs. Allie Reuben, of Toledo, Ohio, also nominated Inseparable, who has carried their colors to numerous important victories. Also listed in the subscriptions to the Lincoln are N. G. Bouchards Can Locate and Fair Appraisal, Mrs. Herbert Herffs Screemin Jack, B. W. Landys Plunger, E. C. Roths Challcote, Mrs. G. C. White and E. W. Thomas Our Request, Sam E. Wilson, Jr.s, Air Mail, and G. R. Wynhoffs Able Sirte. The 1951 Peabody Memorial winner, Pur Sang, earned new laurels last Saturday when he beat the sensational Sickles Image at Detroit. He finished more than two lengths ahead of the filly in the six-furlong Ypsilanti Rotary Club Purse, then worked out seven-eighths in 1:24% as an additional tightener for his forthcoming engagement in the Lincoln Handicap. He carried 120 pounds to the fillys 121. First Win for Stable The Narcissus Handicap was Ruhes first victory for Hasty House Farm since he was purchased from Mrs. Emil Denemark some weeks ago. His stablemate. Seaward, finished second, his best performance in two starts here this season. He previously won the Ben Ali and Clark Handicaps in Ken- tucky and the Republic Handicap at Havana, Cuba, this year. Seaward needs only ,500 to push his total earnings past the 00,000 mark. Inseparable has passed that goal, with 02,505 to his credit. Perhaps the most improved horses named for the Lincoln Handicap are the erstwhile selling platers, Can Locate and Able Sirte. The former, a five-year-old gelding by On Location, out of Cansting, by Sting, has won seven races this season, the same number he won last year. He has moved up steadily in class. As late as March 21 he was claimed for ,000 at Lincoln Downs. He not only won that one, but also his next two starts, which were in allowance races, winning each by three lengths. He took another race at the Rhode Island track before coming west. Arriving, at Sportsmans Park, he won another allowance race on May 3. His first start at the current Lincoln Fields meeting resulted in an eight-length victory. He finished third in his next start on May 21. Then, on May 26, he started in the one and one-eighth miles Technician Purse here to be claimed for ,000, and M. H. VanBerg lost him for that amount to his present owner, N. G. Bouchard. For those who believe in omens, the presence of Pur Sang and Our Request among the Lincoln Handicap nominees may have some significance. Both are now in Detroit, from whence came Biddy Jane and Sweet Patootie to finish one-two in last Saturdays Miss America Stakes. Our Request, one of the two mares named for the Lincoln, concluded her 1951 campaign with a victory over Ruhe at Churchill Downs last fall. She has started only twice this year, finishing second to Gay Hunter at Detroit on June 4.
