' ' " ' · - - _ ' NEW-YORK (AP) ~ A race at one mile between Buckpas- ser, holder of the world recorid, and Dr. Fager, fastest 3-year- old horse ever to travel the distance in New York, was a possibility today. . The chance of such a meeting became likely when Johnny Nerud, trainer of Dr. Fager, announced the flashy colt from W.L. McKnight's Tartan Stable would hot .be a starter in next S a t u r d a y 's $150,00b-added Preakness at Pimlico. Nerud said he was thinking of the Jersey 'Derby or the Metropolitan Handicap for his star's next | by," said Nerud "But it is nice to sit back and to contemplate that you have two, ways to go for a rich purse on one day*" In the Jersey Derby, Dr. Fager would carry 126 pounds, the same as all the others. In winning the Withers, with Brauu'o Baeza in the saddle, Dr. Fager ripped off the one mile in 1:33 4-5, only one-fifth of a second off the track record held by several older horses. Buckpas- ser, 1966 Horse of the Year and winner of $1,237,174 with a string of 14 hung up the world standard of 1:35 4-5 last year at Arlington Park. Buckpasser's last race was Dec. 31 at Santa Anita. A quarter-crack, which also kept him out of such rich 3-year-old races in 1966 as the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes, placed him on .the sidelines again. But he has been working sensationally. His latest time trial was a sizzling 57 4-5 seconds for five-eighths of a mile last Saturday with six furlongs i-5 eased up. Also pointing for the race is Pretense, handicap star of the Santa Anita and Gulfstream Park meetings, with owner Mrs, Elizabeth Tippett awaiting the weights before making a definite decision. In addition to Dr. Fager, Tu- miga of the Withers field will by-pass the Preakness with the latter slated to make his next start in the Jersey Derby. But Hail to Reason, who finished third, will leave Tuesday for Pimlico with Walter Blum slated 'to ride him Saturday. ... __,_tf ; ikhe · Jersey Derby iletropolitan are $100,00 ev«ts with the former a'!%mite" stake exclusively fpr 3- year-olds and the latter a one- mile event open to all ages. The Jeraey : Derby will:be raced at Garden 'State'Park and the Metropolitan at Aqueduct, both on Memorial 'Day May 30. ' . Much depends on the weights assigned by Tommy Trotter* Aqueduct'"Handicapper, "May" 25. "My horse gets 14 pounds by scale*" said Nerud as ,he enthused over Dr. 4 Fager's six- length victory over, -pi^yiously unbeaten Tumiga ! ih:last JJatur- Here's what happened in other feature races'last Saturday: Garden State Park--Stupendous, stablemate of Buck- passer, finished first in the ^S,525 Camden Handicap but was disqualified and placed third with Amberoid, stablemate of Tumiga, moving into the top spot. Pimlico--War Censor carried top , weight of 125 pounds to a four length victory in the 1% miles of the turf of the $59,600 Dixie Handicap. Sportsman Park--Royal Mai- abar came from far back for a 1'A length triumph in the $68,950 Illinois Derby. Hollywood Park--Dr. Roy E, sidelined since last summer by an ankle injury, whipped nine other 3-year-olds in thhe $28,450 Debonair Stakes. SPORTS CALENDAR TUCSON'S MOST COMPLETE!

Speedway (1 Block East of Swan) s car f -Benz grown-ups Mercedes-Benz 230SL Shies among the world's great sports . caiJ Nfiorfcmagazine describes road"holding Ss "uncanny." Yet the230SL doesn't thunder, rattle, ride like an ox- c^rt or look like a rocket ship. It's a civilized two-seater built for normal adults/ hot acrobats. Read how the 230SL delivers all the pleasures of sports car driving--and none of the privations. M ANY driving enthusiasts feel the urge to own a sports ear-but don't like to suffer their usual hardships and handicaps. A solution is ajt hand: the Mercedes-Benz 230SL. "In place of colossal maximum speed and breathtaking acceleration, the magic of this .' car lies instead in its refinement, comfort and - superb road behavior," reports Autocar. You ciui Have your cake andeatit, top.The ·..] 230SL is iujpici^ely livable. And it tuns rings i its sports par competition. your passenger in normal tones. The major reason: a 6-cylinder, single overhead camshaft engine, with fuel injection replacing carburetors and hours of patient handwork to ensure running smoothness. For example, pistons are machined to tolerances of .019 of a millimeter. Every engine is bench-tested for over an hour. Superb stopping power However vigorously you drive it, the 230SL cannot outrun its magnificent brakes. Mercedes-Benz 230SL Roadster cockpit is designed for normal adults, not acrobats. Comfort is so complete that driver and passenger have separate heater and ventilation controls. because it uses no nuts and bolts. After hand filing and buffing, this body is submerged in a ' 52-ton primer vat where every crevice gets a protective coating. After the primer coat-is · baked on, 24 pounds of permanent undercoating seals the underside. Engine, drive train and suspension are rubber cushioned to quell vibration. No wonder the car pounds over brutal surfaces without tremors, rattles ; o r jolts. " · ; . · · In fact, the 230SL thrives on rough going. Competition driver Eugen Boehringer under- i must be a limit, but on aJtifif road we never found it? --Motor road test - The 230SL vaults from zero to 60 mph in 10 seconds. It reaches its peak only at 125 mph. But its most startling trait is its leechlike readability. . . ' ; · Even a quick inspection shows why. 'The car stands a!mere yard and a half high. Yet it straddles the road with a track five feet wide. Tires seem to bulge out from the body sides. Note: These aren't ordinary tires, but radial- ply design, specifically tailored to the car's speed, weight and handlingfriitSi \ All four wheels are Iinke4 to a fully,independent suspension system, first proved on a world-championship Mercedes-Benz racing machine. This skillful engineering has eliminated any trace of a harsh "sports car ride" -as Autocar discovered: "When being really hurtled along, the 230SL sits down on the road beautifully, sweeping over bumps and undulations with the minimum of vertical movement and no sensation at all of wheels patteringup and down." No bone-jarring jolts; this is a civilized sports car-and with a wheelbase of less than 8 feet, an agile one. The 230SL nips and darts through dense city traffic like a whippet in a herd of buffalo. No frazzled nerves On the open road, the 230SL replaces the raucous bellow of most sports cars with a soothing hum. You can actually converse with The 230SL even quashes that ancient complaint about sports car trunk space., A carpeted alcove behind the seats holds large parcels or small children. The trunk carries 12 cubic feet of luggage. Note: Power steering and a 4-speed, automatic transmission are two of the few extra- cost options offered for the 230SL. If you spend much time in city traffic, they considerably ease the burdens of driving. . . .. Autocar comments on their effectiveness: "We have never tried a more successful power steering, and the automatic transmission is also among the best in our experience." . Three cars in one \ You can choose from three 230SL models: the soft-top Roadster, at $6262*; the hardtop Coupe; at $6420*; and the Roadster/Coupe, which gives you both tops, at $6665*. "The detachable hardtop is so beautifully engineered that it doesn't look as though should come off at all," comments Motor.

Up front are 9.9-inch disc brakes. Finned, 9.05-inch turbo-cooled drums act on the rear wheels. A gentle power assist transmits pedal pressure to these brakes-softly enoUgh' to avoid sudden lurching stops, strongly enough to deliver instant response. A reassuring fact: Road Track magazine has been testing all kinds of cars for almost 20 years. The 230SL holds the record for fast stopping times. Strong and silent type Many sports cars are intended as playthings-and built accordingly. The 230SL is meant to endure for years without showing its age. Heavy gauge steel body panels are welded into a single, solid structure that can't rattle scored the point. He slammed his 230SL over some of Europe's worst back roads in the Liege-Sofia-Liege Rally and he won. Bring your wife Take your wife on a test drive in the 230SL. She'll be hard put to find drawbacks. For example, your passenger enjoys more forward legroom than in a Rolls-Royce. Seats. are firmly upholstered, contoured chairs--not skimpy "buckets." You are sealed against wind gusts and cold with roll-up side windows and one of the tightest-fitting convertible tops ever devised. Dual heater and ventilation controls let you select whatever interior climate you want, while your passenger does the same. A word on safety Mercedes-Benz has received widespread publicity about its safety engineering achievements over the past several years. Work continues to make Mercedes-Benz cars even safer, both in avoiding trouble, and in protecting you if trouble should occur. For sane drivers, Mercedes-Benz cars can help reduce the hazards of driving--without dulling its pleasures. But however well engineered it may be, no car can entirely defend against the show-off, the drunkard, or the neurotic bent on self- destruction. Safety depends on you, too. Drive it today The only way to fully appreciate this remarkable machine is to drive it. Come in soon for a thorough test run in . the 230SL-the sports car for grown-ups. Optional steel hardtop turns the 230SL into a snug, closed car. Bill Edel Motors, Inc. 2019 N. Stone Ave. Tucson, Arizona Please send me the free Mercedes-Benz European Delivery Information Kit.
