Hradley did not believe that Clyde Van'Diisen belonged in the same event with Blue Larkspur. The famous gambler safd that the son of Man o' War was too small to carry Derby weight, and (hot lie lacked speed and endurance. If the boss was willing to bet that way, »o were the boys at Idle Hour Farm. The play was heaviest on Blue Larkspur, but Clyde Van Duscn was mighty well liked In and around Lexington.

John Randolph bet his southern c.slnie against a trip to Europe. Tlie great races between Ten Brocck and Mollin McCarthy, and Ten Broeck against Parole and Tom Ochlltrec saw immense private fortunes wagered on the results. Congress adjourned to see Pare'" repel Ten Broeck and Tom Ochiltree. "Bet-a-Million" Gates made the largest, known wager when he took more than million from British bookmakers on Royal Hush. John A. Drake took a million from American and British bookmakers in the early days of this century. Pat McCarren beat New York bookmakers for $300,000 in 1002. Hiley Gramum ran up a stake to S100.CCO and had it all on Lord Dimraven's Desmond when that steed ran out. Michael F. Dwyer wagered $180,COO on a race and lost it on a fluke.
