Sickletoy-Water Color Entry May Rule Favorite in Thistle Down Sprint Test I Carry 121 and 116 Pounds, Respectively; Eight Named For Cleveland News Cap NORTH RANDALL, Ohio, June 1.— jWhile the ,000 valued Cleveland News | Handicap heads tomorrows racing program to be presented by Thistle Down officials at Randall Park the ,500 prized Hollenden Hotel Handicap has attracted a field that for ability and color steals the spotlight. Rice and Goshens versatile Sickletoy, hero of the opening day feature, tops the aggregation of 10 pitted in the Hollenden, and for this six furlongs run he has been imposted with 121 pounds. This should not be too much for him to carry since he is to perform at the sprint distance and then, too, he is to have a running-mate in Water Color, more times than not quite an advantage. If Water Color, who is to tote 116 pounds, can run the pace into the ground, so to speak, then it should not be too much to ask of the Sickle offspring to come along and take major honors. However, plans, no doubt, call for the same strategy from the Mrs. J. L. Chesney entry of Play Hands and Royat. The latter just missed turning the trick single hand-edly against Sickletoy the last time they met. On that occasion there was a five pounds advantage in favor of the Chesney representative. Tomorrow the difference is seven pounds in his favor. Remaining entrants are Miss V. Peetz Ganada and Mrs. W. A. Yarberrys Just Beans, both in with 108 pounds; F. P. Aimes Sassy Patricia, who has lately been working well, and D. Jardons Miss Advice, each in with 106 pounds; D. B. Carpenters Youroff at 105 pounds, and Warner and Hathaways Leaping Moose, in with 114 pounds. The eight named for the Cleveland News, an exclusive three-year-old test at six furlongs, includes two past winners here in Braden and Johns Coolite, imposted with 117 pounds and the 118-pound topweighted Cy Dart, who races for James W. Brown. Others named are Hygros Beauty, Sticker, Lady Garry, Epison, Major Jimmy and Tommy T.
