FRIDAY, MAY 7, 1965. IRONWOOD DAilY GLOBE, IKONWOOD, MICHIGAN flEVIN 3 Races Could Produce Entries ForPreakness By ORLO ROBERTSON Associated Press Sports Writer Throughbred racing Saturday has definite Preakness overtones even though the second leg of the Triple Crown will not be raced until May 15 at Pimlico. Two $50,000-added races — the Withers at Aqueduct and the Illinois Derby at Sportsman's Park — and a $6,000 event at Pimlico could produce some of Kentucky Derby winner Lucky Debonair's opposition in the 90th Preakness. | Quality-wise the $6,000 race, ai 11-16-mile event styled the | Preakness Prep, figures to be; the most important of the three j S0 {t g re ens and sparse fairways Knicks Gamble by Picking Bill Promoters SflV Standings Bradley as Territorial Choice B 'T ' * ,', •"-"—» Bout to Be Held NEW YORK (AP) — "If we hadn't picked him and he decided to play and wound up with another club, I don't see how we could have kept our franchise." This was how Ned Irish, president of the New York Knickerbockers, explained his territorial pick of Princeton's Bill Bradley even though the brilliant basketball player had assured him he was by-passing a professional cage career for a Rhodes scholarship and an eventual law practice. Knudson Leads Colonial Event FORT WORTH, Tex. (AP) even though the field will be much smaller. It will mark the return to competition of Jacinto, who races in the Silks of William Haggin Perry but also is partly owned by A. B. Hancock and Robert Kleberg. Jacinto, who beat Lucky Debonair in the San Felipe at Santa Anita last winter and then ran second to the Kentucky Derby winner In the Santa Anita Derby, hasn't raced since promised more sub-par rounds today as Canadian champion George Knudson led a field of 72 top golfers into the second round of the $100,000 Colonial National Invitational Tournament. The Toronto pro shot a two- under-par 68 Thursday. One stroke behind in the race for the $20,000 top prize were five others, including Worth's Ben Hogan, a five-timer March 6. An injured ankle side-1 winner over the 7,132-yard lay- lined him as he was preparing out sometimes known as Hogan's Alley. The others were Johnny Pott, Gene Littler, Mike Souchak and Tommy Bolt. The extra-soft greens, which often stopped a low hooking approach shot dead in its tracks, gave the golfers a real break Thursday. "If they cut the greens and stopped watering them, you'd find the scores would be higher," Hogan said after his round. "This way they save the bad shots." Arnold Palmer, winner of the Illinois Derby as many as 14. j Tournament of Champions at for last month's Gotham at Aqueduct. Even though the speedy son of Bold Ruler-Cascade will carry top weight of 124 pounds, his opposition will be so small in number that the race likely will be a betless opposition. Only Uncle Willie M., winner of the Maryland Derby; Needles Count, and Tom Stone, each packing 116 pounds, are expected to oppose him. By contrast the one-mile Withers is expected to draw at least 11 3-year-olds and iVfe-mile "I felt we had to take the gamble." Irish said at the contusion of the National Basketball Association's annual draft of college seniors Thursday. "If we didn't, I know for a fact that several other clubs were eager to draft him. I realize the chances are almost nil that he'll ever turn pro but we could not afford to pass him up." The Knicks acquired the rights to several outstanding college stars, notably Dave Stallworth of Wichita and Dick Van Aradale of Indiana, but they gladly would have given up all 13 of their selections for one affirmative nod from the Princeton pride. It has been reported that Irish had offered Bradley $100,000 to sign a Knickerbocker contract. "I made him no definite offer," Irish said. "However, 1 made it plain to him there was no ceiling on what we were prepared to pay him." Bradley was one of the three territorial picks. The other clubs who exercised their territorial rights were Detroit, which picked Bill Buntin of Michigan, and Los Angeles, which selected Gail Goodr)ch of UCLA. Stallworth was New York's first-round choice. San Francisco, which finished last in the Western Division, had two first- round picks and chose Fred Hetzel of Davidson and Rick Barry of Miami, Fla. Other first-round choices were Jerry Sloan of Evansville by Baltimore: Bill Cunningham, North Carolina, by Phildel- phia; Jim Washington, Villanova, by St. Louis; Nate Bowman, Wichita, by Cincinnati; and Ollie Johnson, San Francisco, by Boston. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS National League W. L. Pet. G.B. 14 6 .700 — BOSTON (AP) — "We'll hold this heavyweight title fight May 25 if we have to hold it on a taarge in a Florida swamp." Fred Brooks voices a general sentiment of backers of the beleaguered Cassius Clay-Sonny Listen rematch: The bout will either be banned or blessed in a Boston courtroom today — or be whisked to another site without further delay. The fight, postponed by Clay's emergency hernia operation last November, is scheduled lor Boston Garden May 25. Suffolk County Dist. Atty Qarrett Byrne is seeking an injunction to block the fight. Judge Felix Forte will conduct hearings for the third straight day today. Clay and Listen were ordered to be present but by late Thursday night neither had been served a summons. The legal question is who is the actual promoter — Boston's! Sam Silverman as listed or In-i tercontinental Promotions Inc., an. out-of-state corporation not licensed in Massachusetts as Byrne's office charges? Intercontinental says it Is here to publicize, not promote. Brooks, head of Sportsvision which handles the closed-circuit television, says even if a move should cost them $500,000 in live gate "we'd be protecting the $4'/a million that closed-circuit TV will bring in." Los Angeles Cincinnati Houston Milwaukee . Chicago San Fran. .. Mafor League Flag Raiser is the best known of the Withers prospects. He set the pace for the first mile of the Kentucky Derby before finishing eighth. But before going to Kentucky he won three straight Aqueduct stakes at distances from seven furlongs to V/s miles. Isle of Greece, who has run well in California and Maryland but shown little in New York, likely will go with Flag Raiser as the trainer Hirsch Jacobs entry. Turn to Reason, another uirsch Jacobs - trained colt, heads the Illinois Derby field along with Tarra Hi, Adsum and Mike's Red. Las Vegas last week, had this to say about his opening round 73: "I wasn't real pleased, but also I didn't play real bad either.
