Welch is teamed with Pens iveJrayp, red To Win Belmont And Triple Title BALTIMORE, May 15 (U.P.)— Pensive, the shiny chestnut colt which took the Kentucky Derby and the Prcakness, Is a favorite to win the triple crown for three- year-olds. Tlie triple crown goes to the horse who wins the Kentucky Derby, the Prcakness and the Belmout slakes. Pensive is two up and one tv) go. If the Calumet Faun C olt wins (he Belmont he'll go dow;i as tlic .seventh thoroughbred In turf history (o win all three. And he'll be following a great horse, Count Fleet, who swept the grounds last year. When Jockey Conn McCrcary brought Pensive nn In (he stretch to a four-length victory in the Derby they called It lucky. True, marvels. They expect a clean hard fought battle In which the one making the least mistakes returns winner. Big Hoys Tangle In sharp contrast the Wclch-S/a- bo is due to be just as interesting and exciting, They likely will substitute the rock and sock method for the scientific. Tlie one with tlie most power and ability to absorb punishment should finish on top. \ Mix the two styles together and yon have what probably is in store during the tag feature. Despite their lack of weight In comparison with Ihcir foes, Wisbar .and Belkas arc strong and powerful and capable of dealing with the bigger boys. They substitute speed and skill for weight ".lid power and the substitution has iroven rjuite adequate in the past. The card gets under way promptly and probably will—on this show. Hacked lo back with four stars, it is expected to develop into n colorful combination of science and skill and modern display of ring warfare that may prove tops. There seems to 1» little to choose either between the two contending pairs in the preliminaries, or tlie lag teams. They are almost equally divided as to weight and experience. While interest is unusually keen over the tag match, the preliminary matches may steal the show for action.
