(AMD coufina j«wt SATURDAY, MAY 8, 193 Mil til IS fiX RIDDLE Would Be Second Filly Winner; Sees Discovery Second,' Cavalcade 3rd BY MAX KlDDl.E NBA S»tvke Turi WriWr LOUISVILLE, May 6.—It Is time for all good — and bad — Derby prognostic lors to step In, so to speak, and wet their feet. Despite Hie coldness of the water, this observer plunges right off the deep end and comes up with a mouthful — Mata Karl first; Discovery «cond; Cavalcade third. There's lite winner, ladles and gentlemen, free, grails and for nothing. Charles T. Fisher's loin boy, Mala Hari. She can run like Top Flight, and asks no favors from the gentlemen In tlic party. She Is reported to be merely a front runner, and we know all about her unpredictable temper. JJut any Derby candidate Is on un predlclable quantity at best, nn should Mala Harl get out in front .with racing on her mind, she'll run off. : and hide from the rest. \ c * * * ' Sir Tbomas, you say? Well, give him consideration'in the mud. But on a fast track, remember Uie excessive miles of training lie's had In preparation, and his 11 straight failures last year. -Discovery? . Here's a ground burner, certainty, but don't forget his penchant for getting Into trouble — and making -It. Should he start swerving, or boring In, he won't be first at the wire. Too many bent on racing for monkey shines. Cavalcade? Now here's one thai might really. get fresh with ou: little ladv, especially since his rto- or.d-equallng win In the recen Shenandoah Purse at Havre d Grace. .Possibly, If- you combine Derb facts with fancy, you will come, a near ..a winning prediction as yo would by any other method Hunches have been known to pu )h chips by the thousands, an fancy, permits a wide latitude. - example: PlltS BETID I BridfM.
