P (he declared that the Mexican prob

I "A club In New York has offered
Ritchie $12,600 for his end of a ten

Carey has bettered this fiimrc by

top the offer of the Vernon promoter,'

R.-terence wa.s niado not long ago to
the fact that the veteran mare. Aunt
Polly, after having figured as the
leading money w inner of her age i
since 1907. had finally been retired
from racing. Another evergre-n r:i -cer.
one year older than Aunt Polly
that had been taking similar honors
In his class during the same period
in which Aunt Polly had been dlstin
gnlahing herself, is likewise miss
ing from the list of active racers.
This is the roan gelding Bill May-1
ham, whose final appearance under
colors took place last year, when he
was 14 -year-old
Bill Mayham. like Aunt Polly, raced
In the far west, where he had the
reputation of being one of the faateal
horses for a short distance ever sad- j
died for a race. It mattered not what I
kind of company Bill Mayham was
meeting, he would generally be sift-1
ing out In fron. In the early part of
his races Generally, too. ha failed to
stay beyond the shortest sprinting
distances. But he certainly was a
fast horse as far as ho could go. and
win a race occasionally
A story appeared In print last year,
when Bill Mayham was still in active
training, of an attempted killing with
the old gelding that went wrong at
Winnipeg In 1904.
Bill Mayham was a 7-year-old at
the time and his owner regarded him
as the fastest horse In the world tie
shipped him to Winnipeg, where some
good hursca were rnHi'.L- at the time,
including those belonging to the
Mackenzie stable.
"The Rocky Mountain Wonder," as!
he was called, did not make his ap-1
pearancc until near the close of the
meeting. He was owned in North
Yakima, Wash , and had been racing
through the northwestern states for'
several seasons At Seattle he had
won a half mile raee In 47 hoi.i
and three and one-half furlongs in
41 seconds Hl6 people ruin
cret of their belief that It was wast
Ing time for any other horse to run
against him. and If any man lost his j
i money betting against him it was his
own fault. In these flays they sold
pools in town the nlgbt before th
races, and the citizens of North Ya
klma wont to the front as soon as the
opportunltj opened.
They made the roan first choice and
bought every pool on him till they
had put $40,000 into the box. Next
day at the track tho took 3 to 6 for
the rest of their money, and consid
ered themselves lucky to gel on at
any price.
Maybe they would have been right
if nothing had happened to Bill, but
something did happen, as unfortu
nately is frequently the case when a
man has his money down. Bill spread
his foot on the granite-hard track
during the running of the race and
finished a distant third to Alzora and I
Versifier, with half a dozezn othi-rs I
behind him He pulled up so lame;
that until the nature of the mishap!
was discovered it looked as If he
would never start again.
Bill Mayham career is the answer
to the silly statement that "a thor-!
onghbrad'l racing days are over at 4
yearn." Persons eager to say nasty J
things about racing are little concern
ed about the truth, as one fair-minded
writer pointed out in referring to
Bill Mayham's record, it would not'
suit their purpose.
Bill Mayham Is a roan gelding by
The Hero-Katie Wewekus. His sire
was bred by J. C. Smith of Tronto.
