I., June 16.— Narragansett Park, scrubbed and polished like a June graduate, in preparation for its summer meeting which opens on Monday, June 30, and runs through 24 racing days to July 26, takes the first step toward assembling an all-star cast with the opening of the spacious stable area for the reception of horses yesterday morning. ■ Carefully selected from more than 3,000 applicants, 1,200 horses have been assigned stall space. Reservation cards have already been mailed to many of the preferred stables and racing secretary Ty Shea will be on hand over the week-end to screen and approve the remainder. While the top stables currently racing at Suffolk Downs will move over en bloc, a sizeable group of invaders is due from Garden State and Delaware Park to stimulate competition. Due to arrive from Delaware within the next few days is the powerful public stable of Henry S. Clark, who trains 17 horses for various owners, including Winlochan Stable, Craigwood Mrs. H. S. Clark. Included in this stable, Bruce S. Campbell and batch are the sharp campaigners, Adopt, The Slip, Palatial Appetite. Midyear and several well regarded 2-year-olds.
