Noureddin Heads Roster For Louisville Handicap Scheduled to Carry 119 Pounds Saturday at Churchill Downs By Staff Correspondent CHURCHILL DOWNS, Louisville, Ky., May 5. — Crabgrass Stables Noureddin heads a field of 21 older middle distance runners for Saturdays 22nd running of the 0,000 added Louisville Handicap at 1 1-16 miles. This four-year-old son of Noor, who finished third to Tim Tam in last years Kentucky Derby, was rated at 119 pounds by racing secretary-handicapper Allan "Doc" Lavin and is being asked to concede from three to 23 pounds to his opposition. Rated closest to Noureedin at 116 pounds is S. I. Crews fine development, cuvier boy, who not only won last weeks 21st renewal of the Churchill Downs Handicap but will also be going for his fourth victory in five attempts. The Hasty House Farm of Allie and Billie Reuben was the most liberal nominator with four. Their Sarcasmo is considered the most dangerous with an impost of 115, Troubadour II., 112; Ekaba, 111, and Alarullah, 107 pounds. Maine Chance Farm is represented with Jets Alibi, 112 pounds, but is considered highly doubtful as he is not in the area. R. F. McMahan Sr.s recent 3,500 claim, Styrunner, received 111 pounds mainly due his brilliant victory here yesterday with a one mile run in l:9fft while under 118 pounds. The Jacnot Stable of Jack Hogan has a pair of eligibles in Santiago, 110, and Glee-man, 109 pounds. W. J. Sprows Cardinal Sin was rated at 109 pounds, one above that which he lifted in winning last years renewal. Should the five-year-old son of Papa Redbird prove successful Saturday he would be the first to win this prize twice. Weights for the 0,000 Louisville Handicap, 1 1-16 miles, follow: Horse. Wt.
