Blytheville Golf Team Wins One Match But Loses Second By LEO H. PKTERSKN .Vailed Press Sports Editor LOUISVILLE, Ky,, May 6. (UPI — Anault, the chestnut charger from £i*p In the heart of Texas, became lh* solid choice of thc hardboots todsy to win next Saturday's run-1 nine of the Preakness with the iune remarkable ease with which he gained an eight-length triumph In the Kentucky Derby.

Bold Venture,, who sired the itretch-running colt on the famous King Ranch in Klngsvlllc, Tex., Went on to win the 936 Preakness alter upsetting thc highly-favored Brevity In the Kentucky Derby. There was plenty of reason to believe, however, thai Assault might be called upon to put' on a faster performance In Baltimore than he did here. It was agreed that he got all the best of the racing luck in the slow muddy loam at Churchill Downs in a big field of 7 starters. The favored Lord Boswcll. star of the three entries of Mrs. Elizabeth (Arden) Graham, was blocked as Jockey Eddie Arcaro look him Into the upper turn, and couldn't make up the lost ground In the stretch. Hampden, who closed with a rush to finish third, might have done better had not rookie jockey Job Dean Jessop miscalculated the of the race and pulled up his horse. The railbirds thought that he was mining fast on both Assault and the second place Spy Song when Jessop eased him.

Those regarded as certain starters • re Assault, Lord Boswcll, Knock- dcrwn, Rippey and Hampdcn, with the other three, Alainond. Wee Admiral, and Marine Victory, somewhat doubtful starters. The time for this year's Derby, 2:06.3, was slow but not bad considering the muddy track which had been pelted with rain for the bel- ter part of a week. The fact that Assault won the Wood on a lightning fast track was expected to dispel any dojibts that he was strictly a mudder who might not be able to.go as well on dry footing. ... Owner Richard J.
