AP Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Nine 3- year-olds were entered today to oppose unbeaten Seattle Slew's bid to win the Triple Crown with a victory in the Belmont Stakes Saturday. When the entries were taken today, there were three more horses in the field than had been expected. Seattle Slew, once again, will be ridden by Jean Cruguet from the No. 6 post for the 114- mile classic. If he wins, he will become the first unbeaten Triple Crown winner in history. Five colts who already have been beaten by the Slew in the Kentucky Derby or Preakness, or both, also were entered. They are Mrs. Robert E. Lehmann's Run Dusty Run, the No. 1 post, Sandy Hawley; John Galbreath's Sanhedrin, No. B, Jorge Velasquez; Harry Mangurian Jr.'s Iron Constitution, No. 2, Angel Cordero Jr.; Luis Navas' Sir Sir, No. 5, Gustavo Avila, and Mr. and Mrs. John Campo's Hey Hey J.P., No. 3, no rider. Completing the field are Meadow Stable's Spirit Level, No. 10, Antonio Graell; Elaine Brodsky's Leading Scorer, No. 7, no rider; Elmendorf's Make Amends, No. 4, Ron Turcotte, and John L. Grear's Mr. Red Wing, No. 9, Jacinto Vasquez. With nine starters, the 109th Belmont will be worth $183,800, with $110,230 to the winner. Although make Amends is owned by Elmendorf, he will run as an entry with Hey Hey J.P. because Campo trains both colts and has an ownership interest in Hey Hey J.P. The CBS telecast of the 109th running of the 114-mile classic will be from 5-6 p.m. Cruguet, who has been aboard Seattle Slew for all eight of his victories, has known major disappointments in his career. In 1971 he was headed for the Derby as the rider of Hoist the Flag, the early favorite to win that famed race. But while working out for the Gotham Stakes, a Derby prep, Hoist the Flag broke a leg and never raced again, although he was saved for stud. In 1972 Cruguet was riding San San, a top 3-year-old French filly who was headed for the renewed Prix de 1'Arc de Triomphe. A week before the Arc, Cruguet was injured in a spill involving another horse and had to watch as the filly won the Arc. And even in this year of success, Cruguet has been hard hit by criticism from various quarters for his handling of Seattle Slew. But- that criticism in recent weeks has tailed off to a whisper. DENVER -- Monty Henson, one of the -two reigning world champion saddle bronc riders, and the season's leading winner in the event, suffered a broken leg while competing at the Fort Smith, Ark., rodeo, which ended June 4. The 23-year-old cowboy from Mesquite, Texas, had his right foot slip out of the stirrup at the sound of the whistle, and he hit the ground . awkwardly, breaking his right fibula. Doctors in Dallas, Texas, said Henson would probably be out of competition ten to 12 weeks -- "which means more like eight," Henson predicted. Henson said he hoped to be able to ride by the time of the Cheyenne, Wyo., Frontier Days rodeo, set for July 23-31. Henson leads Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association saddle bronc riders this season with $13,399 in winnings. First-place winners at the Fort Smith rodeo included Phil Sublett of San Augustine, Texas, $1,958 in steer wrestling; Roy Cooper of Durant, Okla., $1,393 in calf roping; Barney Brehmer of Peterson, la.,$1,492 in bull riding; Paul Mayo of Farmers Branch, Texas, $1,249 in bareback riding; and a tie in saddle bronc riding between three-time world champ Bill Smith of Cody, Wyo., and Mike O'Neill of Granbury, Texas, each winning more than $600. Another major rodeo, winding up Sunday, was' at Santa Maria, Calif. Winners included Joe Alexander of Cora, Wyo., $686 in bareback riding; John Growney of Red Bluff, Calif., $706 in bull riding; Gene Erickson of Kingman, Ariz., $727 in saddle bronc; Ed Hirdes of Turlock, Calif., $1,127 in calf roping; Russ Dolven of Wickenburg, Ariz., and Rodney Towe of Hilmar, Calif., $620 and $434'respectively in steer wrestling; Larry Goss of Canby, Ore., and Jerold Camarillo.of Oakdale, Calif., $1,339 each in team roping.
