Icangetit May Go in Steger Handicap;, I List Twenty-One Nominations for Stake e 1 i I • 1 1 ! r j - e | I j _ I ; g - e f n - n in a I ;t - d 5 - - o g II d j j of j j h 11 y - 1. il y .- it n ie of f ;r y, Tikulski Three-Year -Old • VV/7/ Pass Up Engagement In Derby This Week-End STICKNEY, 111., June 5.— Leon Tikulskis Icangetit definitely is out of the Kentucky Derby, it was announced here this morning, and if the track is fast he will make his next start of the season in the ,000 added Steger Handicap which headlines the Lin-j coin Fields Jockey Clubs program at Haw-f thorne on Saturday. He is one of 21 horses made eligible for the week-end sprint of six and a half furlongs and is almost cer-y tain to be one of the favorites. In his one and only start of the year the Tikulski colt won the six-furlong La Grange Handicap from a field that included a number of older horses. Had trainer Rob- ert McGarvey been able to get a distance race under the son of Stagehand following that sprint, Icangetit might have been sent to Louisville for the Derby, but now with- out the advantage of that additional prep-t aration he will remain here. Later he will 1 be pointed for the Arlington Classic and the American Derby. The Tikulski forces are well represented in the Steger, for Holdall, winner of, the Inaugural Handicap, and Bolus also have been nominated along with Icangetit. A. S. Higgins* Quizzle, hero of the Crete and Francis S. Peabody Memorial Hand- icaps, continues to stand out as the horse to beat in Saturdays stake. He is unbeaten in four engagements this year and his recent training indicates he is holding his excellent form. Some of the other leading candidates for the Steger are Mrs. Emil Denemarks Sig-if nals Bloke and Fire Dust, Mrs. Edward McCuans Wise Moss, Mrs. Frank Nugents Espino Gold, Hyman Friedbergs Harriet Sue, and the Swanee River Stables Cory-g don. Harriet Sue and Wise Moss failed to im-t press in the Kenilworth Handicap on Mon-n day, but their connections look for more complimentary performances from them this week-end. Occupys name stands out conspicuously on the list of Steger nominations, but plans for the John Marsch colt have been ! changed and he is not to be shipped here ! from Louisville at this time. The complete list of nominations for Sat-n urdays sprint follows: Brolite Farm, Chal-te lenge Me and Full Cry; Mrs. E. Denemark, Fire Dust and Signals Bloke; H. Fried-k berg, Harriet Sue; A. S. Higgins, Quizzle; Hilltop Stock Farm, Topnard; H. E. Ja- r coby, Good Bid; H. L. King. Bolo Tie; J. A. j Kroeck, Juke Box; John Marsch, Occupy; Mrs. E. McCuan, Wise Moss; Mrs. F. Null j gent, Espino Gold; Ruth Sidell, Burgoo j Maid; S. D. Sidell, St. Jock; Swanee River Stable, Bosage and Corydon; L. Tikulski, i, Bolus, Holdall and Icangetit; J. Trent, t, Colonel Read.
