But- May Not Be a Great Horse
Dancer Can Perform Miracles
With Those Pari-Mutuel Odds
By th« Associated Press
BALTIMORE, May 25.—Rac
ing fans can go on arguing
whether Native Dancer is great,
good or just the best of a poor
crop, but there's no question the
gray colt has color and a public
following that can really do
tricks with the odds board.
Never has a horse caused such
a distortion of betting as The
Dancer did in the 77th Preak
ness Saturday at Pimlico.
There was $696,639 bet on the
seven horses and $546,663 of it
was on Alfred G. Vanderbilt's
winner. Moreover, while they put
$185,705 on him to win and $79,-
382 for second, bettors poured
in an amazing $281,576 on him
for third.
This was outsmarting the rac
ing laws of Maryland. The
State guarantees 10 cents on the
dollar, and The Dancer didn’t
figure to be much over that to
win. He wasn’t, paying only
$2.40 for first and 20 cents less
in the next two spots. Pimlico
had to fork over $46,012 of its
own money to make the mini
mum payoff.
So great was the public faith
in Native Dancer that the next
lowest win price was 11.20 to 1
on Royal Bay Gem. And this
disparity despite the fact that
Native Dancer had been beaten
three weeks before in the Ken
tucky Derby by Dark Star, one
of his competitors in the Preak
The public made Dark Star
their third choice at 11.30 to 1
and he finished fifth.
Some observers still weren't
fully sold on Native Dancer’s
greatness after Saturday's race.
Their reluctance was due to his
failure to win by any more than
a long neck over Jamie K., the

Bandit, Stinker Share Honors
In Bridle Trails Series Opener
By Bruce Fales, Jr.
A week ago, Joan Ostrow was
ill at Doctors’ Hospital. Today
with her all-around performer.
Bandit, she is leading a large
entry for the Earl of Harewood
Vase, emblematic of the private
ly-owned championship in the
Washington Bridle Trails series.
The Bandit-Ostrow combina
tion scored 12 points at the Bri
dle Trails first member show of
the season yesterday at the
Equitation Field in Rock Creek
Park. Runner-up was Steward
R Carter’s Rory, ridden by Peg
gy Wright. Plagued by bad
surprisingly strong finisher who
had won only three of 19 pre
vious races, many of which were
against mediocre competition.
These folks want to wait for
the Belmont stakes, final event
of the Triple Crown, on June
13 when Jamie K, and his jockey,
Eddie Arcaro, will have another
, chance.
Both Trainer Bill Winfrey and
Vanderbilt felt that Native
Dancer had run a stronger race
in the derby, in which he suf
fered his only defeat in 14
starts. If so, the colt at least
proved he could still beat the
best of his three-year-old com
petitors on an off-day. For he
showed he could knock down the
early speed horses, such as Dark
Star and Tahitian King, and
then hold off such late comers
as Jamie K and Royal Bay Gem.
Prunier Wins Feature

Bill Prunier of Silver Spring
won the feature stock car race

day, his second straight and

Speeds in Qualifying
Point to New Record
In Indianapolis 'soo'
By Ihe Associated Press
Barring bad weather or wrecks
that slow the pace, the winner
of next Saturday’s 37th annual
500-mile auto race should put
a new speed record in the In
dianapolis Speedway books.
The 33 starters averaged al
most a mile-an-hour faster than
last year’s record-smashing field
in qualifications that ended yes
Only nine of last year’s start
ers made over 136 miles an hour
in the 10-mile time trials. Nine
teen of this year’s field bettered
that speed. The overall average
is 136.435, compared with last
year’s 135.504.
Troy Ruttman, out with an
injury this year, set a record
average of 128.992 for the 500
miles last year.
Vukovich Is Man to Beat.
Bill Vukovich of Fresno, Calif.,
who qualified May 17, won the
SI,OOO extra prize for the top
speed of 138.392.
Most speedway fans rate
Vukovich as the man to beat
in this year’s race, since he led
most of the 1952 grind until his
steering gear failed. He’ll start
in the No. 1 spot.
Bill Holland, the 1949 winner,
came back Sunday after two
years’ absence and qualified the
Crawford Special as 137.868. It
was the best time of the day and
he would have gone faster if his
pit crew hadn’t begged him to
slow down.
The 45-year-old Holland has
a first and three seconds to his
credit for four Indianapolis
starts. The American Automo
bile Association suspended him
before the 1951 race for compet
ing in an unsanctioned race and
reinstated him last winter.
Two Minor Accidents.
There were only two accidents
in Sunday’s 62 qualifying runs
and nobody was hurt.
Len Duncan of Philadelphia
hit the concrete retaining wall
coming out of the northwest
turn and wrecked the Central
Excavating Special. Frank Armi,
Hanford, Calif., spun into the
infield in the Morris Special.

individual student,” he says. I
And now he has decided to make !
it his full-time job.
Reno’s 10-year stay at Blair
began in 1943 when he was
named baseball coach at the
school. He was attending night
classes at GW at the time, play
ing guard on the Colonial’s
freshman eleven, and for the
varsity in his sophomore year.
He transferred to Maryland in
,1944 and played on the football
squad coached by Doc Spears.
That winter he assumed charge
of Blair’s basketball team.
When Blair’s first football
team was organized in 1945, Con
tinetti quit the Terrapins to ac-
I cept the coaching job. In eight
years his teams won 30 games,
lost 33 and tied two. Blair elev- j
ens dominated the series with,
Bethesda-Chevy Chase, their
arch-rival, winning five, losing
two and tying one.
Continetti is married and is
the father of two boys and a girl, j
The position he vacates at
i Blair, where the enrollment of
1,600 is growing, is certain to at
tract a flock of applicants. With
a new $500,000 gym scheduled for
t completion next year, Blair
5 seems to be one of .the riper

Murphy Outrolls Moulton
To Retain Duckpin Title
Fred Murphy still is the area’s
match-game duckpin champion.
Murphy, who early in the season
set an all-time District record
with a league set of 523, retained
his title last night at Colonial
Village. His victim in the final
was Jack Moulton, beaten four
games to three.
Thus the annual tournament,
which started with a field of 29
stars, wound up in a battle of ;
bowling alley managers, Murphy
of the Queen Pin and Moulton of i
the Bladensburg lanes.
In the finals, Murphy averaged i
127-5 and Moulton 126-6.
In the semifinals, Murphy de- •
! seated a surprise performer in
Frank Aquino, 4-2, Aquino, a
statistician of the Census Bu
