TUESDAY, MAY 16, 1967 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N PAGE 21 PREAKNESS STAKES Damascus Hides Out BALTIMORE (AP) -A television viewer in California Saturday will see more of Damascus racing in, the Preakness Stakes than regulars at Pimlico do all week. Trainer Frank Whiteley Jr. i s following the same seclusion plan with Damascus as he did with Tom Rolfe two years ago. He'll do his training at Laurel race course, 25 miles away, truck over a few hours before the $150,000-added race and be back home before dark. If Damascus can duplicate Tom Rolfe's 1965 performance, there will be no faulting Whiteley's system. Tom Rolfe sneaked in, ran off with the Preakness and went on to be voted best 3- year-old of the year. Damascus already has paralleled one Tom Rolfe performance by finishing third in the Kentucky Derby. He went off the betting favorite May 6, bui trailed John Galbreath's Prouc Clarion and Barbs Delight, both of whom also will tackle the 3-16 mile Preakness. Whiteley, who never uses two words when one will suffice or one when none will do, con firmed he has the same plans for Damascus as Tom Rolfe The brief telephone conversa tion: "Will you bring him over to Pimlico during the week?" "I doubt it very much." "How long before the race will you bring him on Saturday?" "Couldn't say that right now." "Are you going to work him out at Laurel?" "Ease him today or Wednesday." "Well, if he does the same as Tom Rolfe, you'll be all right." "If I'm lucky, yes." Whiteley did work out Tom :lolfe at Pimlico a couple of days before his Preakness victory. But he did so over under an assumed name. Not long after nailing down the Preakness first prize of $128 100, Tom Rolfe was in a truck headed back to Laurel. In the front seat holding a reproduction of the Woodlawn Vase, which has been-a racing trophy since 1860, on his lap was Whiteley. The trainer is a native of Maryland a real homebody While Damascus was born in Kentucky, the son of Swore Dancer and Kerala, he has oth- Maryland connections. He is owned partly by Mrs Thomas Bancroft, who lives near Sandy Spring, Md. It is no far from the town of Damascus The jockey silks are among the oldest and most famous in racing, the red polka dots on ; white background of the lat William Woodward Sr. He is ; former chairman of the Jocke., Club, overseer of horse racinj in the United States, and one proprietor of the famous Belai Stud Farm in southern Mary land. His 84-year-old widow is th other owner of Damascus. Bonanza Air Lines to LAS VEGAS from Phoenix Reservations: 624-7427 AUTOMATIC- T R A N S M I S S I O N .
