Harriet Sue to Compete ! At Hawthorne Tomorrow Woodlawn Handicap, Secondary Event, to Draw Steger Winner STICKNEY, 111., June 14.— Harriet Sue, Hyman Friedbergs winner of the Steger Handicap, is to try for another success at Hawthorne on Saturday. She is to take part in the Woodlawn Handicap which the Lincoln Fields Jockey Club will offer as the principal supporting attraction on a card headlined by the ,000 added La Salle Handicap, a run of a mile and three -sixteenths. Entries for the Woodlawn were being accepted today and Harriet Sues name was among the first to be accepted by racing secretary W. R. Dahlstrom. After two defeats here, the daughter of Bull Lea came back to score a decisive victory in the Steger which was decided over the same distance, six and one-half furlongs, over which Saturdays race will be contested. The Friedberg filly led from one end to the other and whipped a field that included Espino Gold, Icangetit, Quizzle, Colonel Read and Full Cry. That Harriet Sue is ready for Saturdays engagement she demonstrated when she recently worked six furlongs in 1:15. Two other interesting entries for the Woodlawn Handicap are Quizzle, owned by A. S. Higgins, and Espino Gold, who represents Mrs. Frank Nugent. These two runners thrilled Hawthorne patrons several weeks ago by finishing in a dead heat for first money in the Francis S. Peabody Memorial Handicap. Earlier Quizzle won the Crete Handicap. Meanwhile, a field of about nine is expected to compete in the La Salle Handicap. Of the 11 nominees one, Colonel Read, is definitely out and another, Challenge Me, is doubtful. Colonel Read has been shipped away and Challenge Me may not be suited by the distance of the stake and for that reason may be withdrawn. Several of the nominees for the La Salle were seen in training moves over a fast track here this morning. Mrs. Clyde Troutts Take Wing, who has been to the post only once before this year, breezed a mile in 1:4925 while the Swanee River Stables Corydoa stepped six furlongs in 1:16*5 and the Happy Hour Farms Devalue covered the same distance in 1:24. Some of the others expected to be in the La Salle are Mrs. Robert McGarveys Night Shadow, Leon Tikulskis Icangetit, Hyman Friedbergs Bolos Choice and H. E. Jacobys Good Bid.
