(AP) Dancer's Image's owner Peter Fuller and trainer Lou Cavalaris have left Louisville. But the hearing in the disqualification of the gray colt as Kentucky Derby winner continues at Churchill Downs today. "We'll be back Wednesday REVISED SCENE morning," Fuller said as he prepared to board a plane for Baltimore after testifying in the first day of the stewards' hearing Monday. The owner and trainer said they were asked by the stewards to attend a session Wednesday, perhaps to offer more testimony. Today, however, the two were to supervise a workout for Dancer's Image, now in training for the Preakness this Saturday. At the first day of the hearing, which lasted 11% hours, eight or wore witnesses offered testimony or evidence. However, no one divulged what transpired at the closed session, which .was cloaked by tight security. The hearing is intended to determine who is to blame for the appearance of phenylbut'azone in the colt's system after the running of the.Derby May 4. Cavalaris' reputation is at staSe, plus he could be suspended from handling Fuller's string. In addition,. Fuller says he won't run Dancer's Image in the Preakness if Cavalaris cant saddle him. j* * * Fuller already has lost the $122,600 Derby purse because of the drug incident. The money presumably will be awarded to Calumet Farm's Forward Pass. However, any distribution of the purse awaits an order from the stewards, which will be issued only after completion of the hearing. Besides Fuller, trainer Cavalaris and two members of Fuller's stable staff gave testimony. Also before the stewards Monday were Dr. Alex Harthill, in whose barn Dancer's Image was quartered before the Derby; Doug Davis, who had his racing string in the next barn, . and two. representatives of the drug testing firm that found phenylbutazone in the colt's urine. THIS SCENE is typical of the action which will be taking place in the summer months in the Osceola area. Basketball will be but one of a number of indoor and outdoor act- ivities available to the young people of the community under the directorship of Al Marques and the South Mississippi County YMCA.
