Night Shadow Gets 120-Pound Impost Rated on Top for La Salle Renewal, With Stablemate, Icangetit, Assigned 112 STICKNEY, 111., June 13.— W. R. Dahl-strom, racing secretary and handicapper for the Lincoln Fields Jockey Club, today announced weights for the ,000 added La Salle Handicap, which will be decided over a mile and three-sixteenths at Hawthorne on Saturday. With her impost of 120 pounds. Mrs. Robert McGarveys Night Shadow is topweighted for the week-end feature, but she is in seven pounds under the scale, while the three-year-old Icangetit owned by Leon Tikulski, is only two under scale with his impost of 112 pounds. Since Robert McGarvey trains both of them, they will perform as ?.n entry in the La Salle and undoubtedly will rule the favorites. Second high in the actual weights is the Brolite Farms Challenge Me, with 115 pounds, the Happy Hour Farms recently acquired Devalue was assigned 114, and the Swanee River Stables Corydon, 113. Bracketed with Icangetit under 112 pounds are the older Bolos Choice, who is to represent Hyman Friedberg, and Take Wing, the hope of Mrs. Clyde Troutt. Eleven horses are eligible for the La Salle and all except one of them, Colonel Read, are expected to be actual starters. Colonel Read has been shipped to Louisville. Bolos Choice Works Mile Several candidates for the La Salle were seen in private trials this morning. Bolos Choice, working over the Hawthorne track, breezed a mile in 1:471s, while Latent, owned by James Sands, breezed the same distance over the half-mile Sportsmans Park course in 1:53 Vs. Icangetit stepped three furlongs, also at Sportsmans Park, in :3835. The La Salle may top the best program of the Lincoln Fields meeting, for on the same bill is the Woodlawn Handicap in which some of the more proficient sprinters will meet over six and one-half furlongs. Nominations for this race close tomorrow and secretary Dahlstrom looks for a heavy subscription list. Among +he nominees may be Harriet Sue, who last week won the Steger Handicap for the Friedberg stable. She stepped a handy three-quarters of a mile at Hawthorne this morning in 1:15. The complete list of weights for the La Salle follows: Night Shadow 120 Challenge Me 115 Devalue 114 Corydon 113 Take Wing 112 Bolos Choice 112 Icangetit 112 Good Bid 110 Latent 108 Colonel Read 106 Amalka 105
