Cascanuez and Jet Pilot King Philip Top Weights Assign Doubtful Pair 122 for Gansett Middle Distance Test By J. N. LYON Staff Correspondent NARRAGANSETT PARK, Pawtucket, R. I., June 14 —Weights for the 5,000 added, mile and one-sixteenth, King Phillip Handicap, for three-year-olds and older, were released here today by Racing Secretary M. C. "Ty" Shea. A representative field of 21 middle distance stars were weighted for the nineteenth running of the stake which is to be contested on Saturday, June 18. Equally weighted at 122 pounds, and heading the imposing list of nominees, were the Charfran Stables Cascanuez and Maine Chance Farms Jet Action. Wheatley Stables Full Flight followed directly behind the top pair with an impost of 120 pounds which proved to be just two more than Irving Gushens Soldier Son had been assigned. From the top quartet the assignments drop to the 116 pounds that Brown Booter, coupled with Cascanuez as the Charfran Stable entry, will lift, to the low impost of 105 that Max Kahlbaums Black Coffee will be asked to pack. Cascanuez, currently in Chicago, has not been officially declared from the event but barring a hurried air trip from the Midwest the appearance of this Argentine-bred in the King Phillip would seem impossible. The complete list of nominations and weight assignments follow: Horse. Wt. Cascanuez 122 Jet Action 122 Full Flight 120 Soldier Son 118 Brown Booter 116 Larry Ellis 116 AmynBey 115 Black Metal 115 News Again 115 Parnassus 115 Isle of Bond - .114, Horse. Wt.
