Headed by the gray champion, Native Dancer, the list of 69 nominees for the 5,000 added" Hawthorne Gold Cup was announced today by Robert F. Carey, managing director of the historic West Side track where the important mile and a quarter autumn fixture will be renewed on October 16. That will be the final day of the 34-day meeting at Hawthorne, where many important improvements are being made this summer in the physical aspects of the plant. The nomination of Native Dancer was made particularly significant by reports from the East that the recent injury to Alfred Vanderbilts great gray four-year-old was a stone bruise, the nature of which is expected to respond to treatment and rest, with prospects that -he colt will be back in training before long. Just what course Vanderbilt and trainer Bill Winfrey will pursue with Native Dancer is still to be determined, but it is altogether conceivable that the great son of Polynesian will again be at his best when the date of the Hawthorne Gold Cup rolls around, and that he will keep his engagement at Chicagos historic track.
