WEDNESDAY EVENING, MAY I, 1963 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N PAGE 45 FOR DERBY ·-- · - ^_ Coast Colts Shine LOUISVILLE, Ky.-- iff) -Thanks to a rookie trainer from a famed racing family and a weather-worn Arizona cowboy who shocks the sophisticated racing world with his simple training methods, C a l i f o r n i a will have i t s strongest Kentucky D e r b y representation in history Saturday. John Jacobs, a 28-year-old rookie, will send his sister Patrice's California-bred Bonjour, winner of Tuesday's Derby Triai, in the iy 4 mile Derby. The Arizona cowboy, Mish Tenney, will send out Rex Ellsworth's favored Candy Spots. Everybody knows what unbeaten Candy Spots can do, and Bonjour just adds a little icing to the cake. "Bonjour is greatly improved since Santa Anita," Jacobs said. "Early last winter he wasn't at his best but now he is." Jacobs, who has helped his father, Hirsch Jacobs, train since 1956, thinks his colt %vill have to be reckoned with. "He came out of the Trial in excellent shape and should be as ready as ever for the Derby," he said. "He ran in the Trial Just like we wanted --he did everything to perfection." Jockey Willie Shoemaker came from eight lengths off the pace to take the lead one- eighth mile from the finish in the mile trial. He won by three-quarters of a length over Gray Pet. On My Honor, another California colt, finished third in a field of eight Derby eligibles. The other California colt expected to start in the Derby, Royal Tower, passed up the Trial. Bonjour ran the distance in 1 minute, 36 2/5 seconds over a good track and returned $4.40 as the favorite. Tenney said last night he doesn't care how Candy Spots runs in the Derby, just so he has a lot left for the stretch run. "If this horse feels like running with the leaders, he can run with them," Tenney said, "If he wants to take his time, that's up to him. "The only thing we care about is having a lot of horse left when we hit the stretch." Tenney, who trained 1955 Derby winner Swaps, believes the best way to train a horse is the simplest way. While most trainers have their Derby eligibles 1 t r a i n i n g s c h e d u l e s clocked almost down to the minute, Tenney never knows for sure when Candy Spots will work out. "If he feels like training a little bit," Tenney said, "we train a little bit. If he doesn't, we just wait for another day when he does." Veteran horsemen on Derby row at Churchill Downs look on in astonishment when Tenney's grooms take care of Candy Spots when he returns from the track after a gallop. Most trainers carefully sponge their colts down, brushing them very carefully. Tenney just turns a water hose on Candy Spots and lets It go at that.
