May 5.— Casting for the performers in the 83d and richest running of the 50,000 added Preakness a week from Saturday continued apace here today and to latest indications Brookmeade Stables Derby second. Sword Dancer, will be opposed by 11 others in the historic 1 3-16 miles. With Tomy Lees defection, it was learned that Hatskins and Sairs Louisiana Derby winner Master Palynch, is coming on from Washington Park for the second of Americas Triple Crown events. And that the Wood Memorial winner, Emil Dolces Manassa Mauler, will be here as a supplemental candidate. Master Palynch vans from the Chicago track Wednesday morning. Manassa Mauler shuttles here from Long Island. The probable field, with their probable riders, now begins with Sword Dancer Bill Boland and includes Mrs. Ben Cohens Pen Bolero Howard Grant, Mrs. Halina Braunsteins Royal Orbit Bill Harmatz , Robert S. Lytles Sundown n. no boy, Llangollen Farms Mosby no boy, C. T. Chenerys First Landing Eddie Arcaro, Briardale Farms Rico Tesio Maurice Ycaza, Elckam Stables Atoll Sam Boulmetis and Open View Karl Korte, C. B. Fischbachs Festival King Bill Carstens, Emil Dolces Manassa Mauler Roy Broussard* and Hatskins and Sairs Master Palynch, who is to be ridden by R. L. Stevenson. Sword Dancer is best known of a sextet of prospective starters already on the scene of the proud old Maryland Jockey Club classic. The others are Pen Bolero, Royal Orbit, Sundown II., Mosby and Rico Tesio. The Derby third, First Landing, generally considered the most formidable rival for Sword Dancer, who is rated no more than 7 to 5, is to van here from Belmont Park at a later date. Master Palynch, who bypassed the Churchill Downs event, worked six furlongs at Washington Park this morning. He was timed in :48%, l:14y5, 1:27, going on out a mile in 1:40% as a sort of reflex action. He proved during the first half of this trial he is no "whip horse," running Continued on Page Pour t ~~ — " mTm LEONARD D.

With a dozen starters, this Preakness would gross 91,800 and net its winner 39,300, unless of course the supplemented I Manassa Mauler, who antes up 0,000 to become eligible, should be successful. It is possible, the field will grow in size with the decision of Saturdays 6 furlongs 1 Delaware Valley at Garden State Park. • Crafty Skipper, Rare Rice, Intentionally, , Cedar Brook and Royal Anthem are Preakness . eligibles who may accept in that dash. • Also that the Preakness Prep here next ; Monday will occasion some additions or subtractions in the list of a dozen now regarded as more or less definite starters. ■ Royal Orbit Starts Monday Reggie Cornell plans to start Royal Orbit in Mondays 1 1-16 miles Prep, leaving his assistant, Pete Kozar, in charge of the i Royal Charger three-year-old when he ■ planed to California late Monday. Rico i Tesio, who arrived here from Louisville late Monday, has been placed in Karry Ko-danas care pending the. arrival of Joseph Piarulli from New York. i Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Persons Mosby was the only one of he resident candidates for the "run for the Black-eyed Susans" to work this morning. He was timed a handy six furlongs in 1:15, and is regarded as a possibility for the Preakness Prep. The Brookmeade board of strategy is pleased with the comfortable, ship Sword Dancer experienced from Louisville, and is bringing on the older Oligarchy from New York to fill an engagement in Saturdays 5,000 added Dixie Handicap. He has been assigned 116 pounds for this grass 1 3-16 miles and is to be ridden by Karl Korte, who is to ride Elckams Open View in the Preakness. Open Views stablemate, Atoll, J is looking for soft going Preakness day. Trainer Eddie Cox of Sundown II. reports the Briton is to have a dress rehearsal for the Preakness on Friday, in a 1 1-16 miles event for non-winners of three at any time. This son of Hyperion and Open I j Country, bred by Queen Elizabeth, made his last previous public appearance in the Tim Tarn Purse, preceding the Derby at Churchill Downs, and arrived at Pimlico early Monday, accompanying Royal Orbit here. Meantime, there is quite a race between Willie Shoemaker and Bill Boland to see who gets the ride on Sword Dancer. The stable is noncommital, except that trainer Elliott Burch was "satisfied with Bolands ride at Louisville." Also wooing Sword Dancer is Willie Hartack, who was unhorsed when Easy Spur developed an ankle in the Derby. Pre-Derby Comments Before the Derby, Shoemaker, who had won the Stepping Stone Purse astride Sword Dancer, was quoted as saying he "would give a million dollars to ride him in the Derby, but had to ride Tomy Lee," In the race itself, he shouted to Boland: "I hope you win it!" as Sword Dancer passed his mount Tomy Lee entering the stretch. Then, perhaps for Auld Lang Syne, he went out a trifle with Auld Alliances son, taking Sword Dancer with him. The rest is one of the most fascinating chapters in Derby history. Following the race, trainer Frank Childs of Tomy Lee estimated "Shoemaker could have won with either horse." Nobody has disagreed. Shoemaker and Boland are fast friends, it says here, but this morning. Shoe, from his California home, was making no bones about wanting to ride Mrs. Sloanes hard hitting little colt. Apparently he is more inclined to mix buisness and friendship than Boland was when he ; claimed foul at the Downs. Thus Sword Dancer momentarily has I volunteers to ride him in the Preakness. 1 This is one more than Boland counted dur-ing the stretch run in the Derby, and two more than the rules of racing, broad- i minded as their interpreters have sometimes seemed, will allow. Up to now there has been no indication that Boland will : be taken off Sword Dancer.
