Y., June 16.— Six middle-distance horses, headed by Lazy P Ranchs Out Point with 122 pounds, have been named to dispute the featured ,500 Brighton Beach Handicap at Aqueduct tomorrow. This is a classified event at a mile and a furlong. Only one jockey was listed to ride in the. feature, Al Widman having been named for Abe Levinsons High Bracket, who gets in with 113 pounds. Out Point, who won the Yankee Handicap last year and ranked just below the better sophomores, has finished second in his two starts at Belmont Park this year. After chasing High Dive home for his seasonal debut, he finished a neck behind the much-improved Golden Gloves in a fast mile and a sixteenth. Out Point was conceding 10 pounds to his rival and was gaining rapidly at the finish. Samuel A. Pecks Guard of Honor, who gets in with 109 tomorrow, finished a length and a half back of Out Point on June 9, receiving five pounds less than he gets tomorrow. The others in the Brighton Beach are C. B. Bonns Blue Hills, 118; T. G. Bensons Mostest, 116, and Phantom Farms Nullify, 114. Blue Hills, a former stakes horse, has shown little this spring and was soundly beaten by Mostest last out. The latter finished third to Dart By and Big If in the role of beaten favorite on Saturday. Nullify comes off a fair race at one mile in which he finished fourth behind Uncle Miltie, Saxony and Mighty Quest, beaten less than three lengths for all the money. Nullify encountered a bit of trouble near the finish of that event and may do better. Several two-year-olds with potential stakes class have been named for the Juni per Valley Purse, the fourth event. Eight of the 10 youngsters named for the dash are eligible to the Tremont Stakes on June 25.

Dave Gorman has been named for both of "Mr. Fitz " colts, and has won with both of them.
