RECORDS SHOW THAT MORVICH
NEVER RELISHED LONG RACES
Had Owner Block Never Sent Runnymede Colt Far
ther Than Six Furlongs He Might Still Have Been
Undefeated?Generally Outbroke the Opposition.
By LEONARD W. COLLINS.
MANY and diversified explanation* have been offered by racing
experts and near-experts for the complete failure of Benjamin
Block's Morvich as>a three-year-old. Strange as it may seem
no two wholly agree as to just why Morvich failed to come up to ex
Undefeated in eleven starts as a juvenile the son of Runnymede
Hymir was proclaimed as being destined to become a far greater
super-horse uian the incomparable Han ?' War. Instead, he became
th* biggest "bust" in the history of American turfdom.
As the Block colt was adding^
victory upon victory to his un
tarnished string of conquests,
throughout the 1121 campaign,
there were then even some who
could not be convinced that the
great two-year old would carry on.
Their argument was that his blood
strains Indicated that he could
never hope to race over a dis
tance of ground under any and all
His sire, Runnymede. whs only
a fair sprinter, while his dam,
Hymir. had never set any worlds
afire throughout her route perfor
mances. Why then should the turf
world put so much In store for
Morvich when his very breeding
conclusively bespoke that he did
not come from a distance running
family. Yet, his complete failure
to carry on over a distance of
ground Is still the talk of turf
A close analysis of every race
In which the son of Runnymede
participated reveals some very In
teresting facts and information.
These are set forth in numerical
and chronological order as the
writer found them In the charts:
1. In his eleven starts, ss a
juvenile. Morvich was called upon
hut once to negotiate a route at a
distance greater than six furlongs.
2. Upon that ono occasion ? the
Plmllco Futurity?he reeled off the
mile in 1.42 over a fast track.
The time, while not ao bad. was
not so good.
3. In only one race of his first
eleven starts was he ever out
broken with the rise of the gate.
This Is significant In Itself.
4. Only once did he have to come
from behind to win. This was in
the Plmllco Futurity. He caught
the two leaders after they had all
but collapsed In the stretch run.
Did stamina, or speed, win that
5. In the Kentucky Derby, his
first start as a three-year-old, he
again outbroke his opposition and
lpd to the finish. His time for
the mile and n quarter was
2:04 3-5. The record Is 2*0.
6. His next start was in the Carl
ton Stakes, at Aqueduct. In that
race Morvich met a horse who
could otttbmik him and 1)eat him
to the first quarter pole. Whisk
away was the one. And wh^n
Whiskaway failed to crack at his
challenge what was the result?
Morvich was beaten eight lengths.
7?After The race James Rowe.
the veteran trainer for Harry
Payne Whitney, is credited with
saying: "Give me a thoroughbre.I
which can outbreak Morvich and
outrun him to the half and I'll
beat him every time."
8?Then cam 1 the Kentucky Spe
cial. The tu.i world looked for
Morvich to regain part of his lost
laurels. Rowe again started Whisk
away against Morvich In the
Special. Morvich slightly outbroke
the Whitney standard bearer but
at the first quarter Whlskaway
was but a half length behind. The
quarter had been run to -22 4-5.
ON EVEN TERMS.
9?At the half Whiskaway had
pullfd up on even terms with the
Rlock colt and was looking him
In the eye. The first half mile had
heen run in .46 1-5. equaling the
world's record made by Donau. at
Santa Anita, in 1909. and Amon
at Juarez. In 1911. And there was
still three-quarters of a mile to go.
10?At the five-eighths Whisk
away had dropped his nose down
in front of Morvlch's and the Run
nymede colt was beaten. Rowe
was right. Whiskaway had outrun
the son of Morvich In record time
for the first five-eighths. Again
Morvich was through.
From this It does not take any
undue stretch of the Imagination
to picture Morvich as one of the
jreatest sprinters the sport has ever
known. He conclusively proved
that in eleven of his thirteen starts.
And he Just as conclusively proved
in . two of thnee starts that he
does not relish racing over a dis
tance of ground.
Had Block kept the Runnymede
colt In events which did not carry
him beyond six furlongs Morvich
might still have been undefeated,
hut American turf followers are
loathe to -ecognize an equine
champion who can not go over
any track at any distance. Therein
lies Man o' War's great popularity.
Six furlongs, a mile, a mile and a
quarter or a mile and five-eighths
was not too far for him. And he
made new records the farther he
Sure of Starting
At Tia Juana
NEW YORK, Dec. 29?
Willis Sharpe Kilmer,
the Binghamton turfman,
has practically assured
friends that he will send
America's greatest gelding,
Exterminator, to Tia Juana
to compete in the Coffroth
and Tia Juana handicaps,
which have added values of
$30,000 and $10,000. Kil
mer is anxious that Exter
minator top the money-win
ning figures of Man o' War,
the aged fgelding being but
a matter of $6,000 from the
record. Victory in either
one of these stakes would
place Exterminator's total
winnings well beyond that
of Man o' War.
