(UPI) — Lucky Debonair, the Kentucky Derby winner, turned up wiUi a swollen ankle at Pimlico today but nevertheless was entered in Saturday's $150,000 added Preakness Stakes along with eight oLiier horses. Lucky Debonair scraped the back of his right rear ankle in a gallop Wednesday and this morning the ankle "filled". "It's a superficial tiling and he probably will be over it in a few days, but I am entering him because the swellmg may go down by tomorrow morning," trainer Frank Catrone said. Also named for the second of the triple crown classics were Dapper Dan, Tom Rolfe, Native Charger, Swift Ruler, Hail To All, Selari, Flag Raiser and Needles Count. Flag Raiser, the speed horse in the field, few the inside post position. In stall number two was Swift Ruler followed by Nedles Coimt, Native Charger, Selari, Tom Rolfe, Lucky Debonair, Dapper Dan and Hail To All on the outside. With nine starters the 90th running of the Preakness will be worth a total of ?180,000, the third richest with a winner's purse of $128,100. Willie Shoemaker again rides Lucky Debonair just as he did in the Kentucky Derby. The other jockeys were all set, too, with Ismael Valenzuela on Dapper Dan, Ron Turcotte on Tom Rolfe, Johnny Sellers replacing Manny Ycaza on Hail To All, Johnny Rotz on Native Charger, Bobby Ussery on Flag Raiser, Ken KnajJp on Swift Ruler, and Jacinto Vazquez on Needles' Count. "Lucky Debonair is as good now as he ever was," said Catrone who, as a jockey back in 1929, finished ninth in the Preakness aboard a horse called Leucite. But who can really tell how a horse feels. If you could you would be a rich man. But Lucky Debonair has breezed good over this track and he is ready. I would like to have more time between the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness but that's the way they run them and you make the best of it," he added. Once again Shoemaker will be on his own. What's the sense of giving instructions? You can't tell ahead of time how a race will shape up. Suppose your horse has trouble leaving the gate— what happens to instructions then?" Catrone asked. OLD FAITHFUL—Camilo Pascual was the mainstay of the old Washington Senators pitching staff and he has been the prime starter for the Minnesota Twins since the franchise shifted in 1961. He's off to another fine start this season. Sports Briefs VIKINGS SIGN FOUR MINNEAPOLIS - ST. PAUL (UPI) —Defensive ends Car! Eller and Jim Marshall and kicking specialists Bobby Walden and Fred Cox signed Wednesday with the Minnesota Vikings for the 1965 National Football League season. EAGLES INK TWO PHILADELPHIA fUPl)-Vet- cran lineman Dave Graham and Riley Gunnels have signed with the Philadelphia Eagles for the 1965 season. Practices picking up at Indianapolis INDIAN.A.P0L1S, Ind. (UPD- Traffic and speeds continued to pick up at the Speedway with just two days of practice left before the start of qualifications for the May 31 500-mile race. Former world road racing champion Jim Clark, of Duns, Scotland, appeared to have more than one strong challenger for the pole position in Saturday's first time trials. For the third straight day Wednesday, someone other than Clark and his rear-engined Lotus-Ford grabbed off top speed honors for the day. Clark turned a lap at an unofficial 156.904 miles per hour early in the day but it wasn't good enough when the usual last-minute practice rush began just be fore closing time. Veteran Don Branson, Champaign, 111., and rookie Mario Andrelti, Nazareth, Pa., turned in identical unofficial speeds of 157.6 m.p.h. in rear - engined. Ford-powered cars. By United Press International The Cmcinnati fans who stuffed the AU-Star baUot boxes in 1957 for eight of their favorites, hardly could be blamed for trying the same thing tills season. Nine Cincinnati Reds are batting over .300 currently and sev en have driven in 10 or more runs. Two other Reds' regulars are hitting .280 or better for the best hitting team in the majors. Gordy Coleman, the National League's leading hitter, tops the list with a .381 mark. Coleman had two hits and a run batted in Wednesday night, Deron Johnson (.308) had two doubles and a single and Tommy Harper (.305) slugged a double and a triple as the second-place Reds trimmed Philadelphia 4-3. Los Angeles, the NL leader, edged Houston 4-2, Milwaukee beat Pittsburgh 5-4, Chicago drubbed San Francisco 7-3 and New York upset St. Louis 2-1. AL Action In the American League, Minnesota topped Los Angeles 4-3, Chicago swept a doubleheader from Kansas City 7-4 and 6-4, Boston blanked New York 2-0, Baltimore stopped Cleveland 4-2 and Detroit beat Washington 5-2. With the Reds hitting .287 as a team. Manager Dick Sisler has been able to "play" with his pitchmg staff. Wednesday night, Sisler sent Jim O'Toole to the bullpen to loosen up for his scheduled starting assignment Saturday. But starter Sammy EUis got in trouble in the eighth and Sisler related: "I saw Jim in the bullpen, and 1 figured it would be a good work out for him, so brought him in. He was loosening up for Saturday but I thought the situation was such that I needed him." First In Two Years It was the first time O'Toole had relieved in almost two years, and he struck out two men and got Richie Allen to hit into a bases-loaded force play in the ninth inning to save the win. "I can do anything," was O'Toole's comment afterward. Sisler said O'Toole stiU would start Saturday despite his "workout." Don Drysdale scattered six hits en route to his fifth victory in seven decisions and Ron Fairly drove in the decisive runs with a bases loaded single in the third inning off loser Don Nottebart (0-2). Jim Lefebvre hit his third home run for the Dodgers and Walt Bond hit his first for the Astros. Fehpe Alou hit a two-run homer in a three-run seventh- inning rally for the Braves lo snap a 2-2 deadlock. The Pirates rallied for two runs in the ninth but Billy O'Dell, in relief of winner Denny Lemaster, retired the final two batters with two men on base. Tom Butters was the losing hurler. Marichal Takes Loss Ron Santo hit a two-run homer m the third and the Cubs scored two nms in each of the eighth and ninth innings to send Juan Marichal down to his third loss in eight decisions. Starter Cal Koonce went 7 1-3 innings and Ted Abemathy preserved Koonce's third win witli two-hit relief work. Jack Fisher pitched a five- hitter and Bobby Klaus drove in the winning run with a sev- ength inning double for the Mcts against loser Curt Simmons. Ken Boyer accounted for the only St. Louis run with his third home run in the top of the seventh. HOP, SKIP AND GRUNT—Robert Beamon. a Long Island. N.Y., high school junior, gives his all for his specialty, the hop, skip and jump. Beamon holds the national schoolboy record of 49 feet, ;five inches. CHECKING THE MERCHANDISE—"Weeb Ewbank, coach of the New York Jets, has a diep interest in the young man exercising with the leg weigh s. It's Joe Namath who signed with the Jets for $400,000 and is testing his knee following an operation iigned last winter. Close race seen in annual Big Eight meet LINCOLN, Neb. (UPI) — The 37th annual Big Eight track and field championships are expected to present a close race for team honors tlvis weekend. Preliminaries will begin at 3 p.m. Friday at Nebraska's Memorial Stadium. The broad jump finals will be held the first day. All other finals are set for Saturday. Kansas University, featuring a balanced attack, is favored to successfully defend its crown. Bob Net«-aska, Missouri, Colorado and Oklalioma are considered strong challengers. The Art of Sliding in Three Different Movements Finley as stubborn as his mule CHICAGO (UPI)-Charies 0. Finley's Missouri mule mascot for his Kansas City Athletics won't be permitted in Chicago White Sox park for tonight's twi-night doubleheader, but his presence will be known. Finley planned to show the mule, Charlie 0., in a leased parking lot across the street from the ball park. He hired six models lo carry picket signs. He also hired a si.x-piece band. "We've got amplifiers, so they'll hear the music in the park," he said. Just in case some of the fans in the park, (and there'll prob ably be plenty outside watching the mule), don't know who's responsible, Finley has hired two airplanes lo circle the park after dark, each equipped with lights to display signs. They will say, in order:, "Charlie 0. Says Hello," "Sox 0'='™''only team to deny KC mascot," i Cleveland "Sox Unfair to Missouri mules," l^^^t^"" "Sox Unfair To Animals," "Sox!New Vork Unfair To Chariie 0.," "Chariiel^^ashmgton Joe Pepitone of the New York Yankees slides safely into third base and takes time out for a look. . . . i . . .

John Galbrealh of Pittsburgh and John Fetzer of Detroit, the two men who are screening ali candidates for the job, have not spoken to any of them and no one has the "inside track." according lo the latest word. Ford Frick's term expires Fetzer and Galbrealh are due to get together shortly. This meeting between them may come off sometime next month, after which a meeting among all the owners of both leagiies will be called. That meeting could take place around AU- Star time in mid-July. Cronin "All Set" A recent report had it that Cronin was "all set" as the Oct. 31 and to give you an idea^ne.xt commissioner and that of how things are going, a sug-i Yankee general manager Ralph gestion has been made IhatlHouk would be named his sue- Warren Giles, Joe Cronin and • cesser as American League Phil Piton of the minors should | president. ship and Houk has been too busy wrestling with problems pertaining lo the Yankees to have much time for anything else. Some new names have been thrown into the hat for the conimissionership. CBS is sup posed to be pushing Gen Eosey O'Donnell and another group is reported to be supporting Stan (The Man) Musial. Every day someone else "gets a call," as they say at the race track, and things have reached such a pass that a number of ballplayers now are even booming Bo BeUnsky for the job. Bo, however, hasn't candi-leach league, date or not. I else still has Actually, there has been little or no change since the owners met in Clearwater, Fla., the last week in March to hand over the names of their candidates to Galbrealh and Fetzer. Shea The Favorite If there is any such thing as a "favorite" for the job, it still would have to be William Shea, the New York attorney who helped bring back a National League franchise to that city. The only reason he could he called a favorite is because a few clubowners seem to like him and none have voiced any serious objection to him. But when you bear in mind that the man who will be elected new commissioner will require seven out of 10 votes from Shea or anyone a long, long way to go. There is, of course, no official "hne" on any of the so- called candidates. The closest thing to it might be: WiUiams Shea, on the upgrade, 10-1; Joe Cronin, good early foot, 15-1; Judge Robert Cannon, might surprise, 20-1; Sen. Phil Hart, nothing recently, 30-1; Kenneth Keatmg, hard ly the one, 40-1; Hank Greenberg, could surprise, 40-1; Gen. Rosey O'Donnell, not much of a factor, 50-1; Sen. Robert Kennedy, needs more racing, 60-1; Ralph Houk, chances appear slim, 75-1; Stan Musial, sentimental choice only, 100-1; A.B. (Happy) Chandler, someone's kidding, no line. Work to begin soon on Belmont park NEW YORK (UPI) — Construction on the §30.7 million new Belmont park is to tiegin in about three months, but the track won't be open for business until spring, 1968. John W. Galbrealh, trustee of the New York Racing Association, made the announcement Wednesday. Vfhtn the original Belmont was torn down in 1963, officials expected the new track to be ready before the end of next year. The news was unwelcome to horsemen because it will mean that except for one month at Saratoga (August) all the flat racing in New York state will be done at Aqueduct until new Belmont opens.
