t .1 THE POST-STAK, GLENS FALLS, N.Y, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 1963 20 Tartan's Dr. Fager Wins iUnited Nations Handicap I ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) f i- Tartan Stable's Dr. Fager staked a strong claim for Horse I if the Year honors Wednesday I -as he won the $100,000 United Nations Handicap in his first 1 race on the grass. I J Proving trainer Johnny Ner- ; ud's contention that a great j jhorse can win on any footing, j Dr. Fager ate up the turf as he V Von by a neck in a driving fin- J 4sh over Ada L. Rice's Advoca- . Jor, a 30-1 shot in the field of -nine handicap horses. Sent off a 4-5 favorite by a ; .crowd of 16,557, Dr. Fager nev- ! er was worse than second in the rmile and three sixteenths race as he earned the $65,000 first money for owner W. L. Mc- 'Knight of Minneapolis, Minn. 4he 4-year-old son of Rough'N : Bowling Today At Pine Lanes Intercity, 6:45 p.m. Four Quarters vs. T & T, 13-14 -15-16 B & C vs. Gold Shade, 17-18 Abbott's Corner Grill vs. Aim-co, 19-20 Danny's Pink Step Inn vs. Unknowns, 21-22 Tumble returned $3.60, $3.20 and $2.60. In winning his sixth In seven starts this year, Dr. Fager carried top weight of 134 pounds, giving away 22 pounds to Advo cator, 16 to Fort Marcy who finished third, and 16 to Tobin Bronze, the Australian champion who woundup fourth. Jockey Braulio Baeza had Dr. Fager in front on the hedge as the field swung around the first turn. It was evident that the grass underfooting would be no problem for the brown colt whose dame, Aspidistra, is known for her turf running sons. He was pursued by Advocator with jockey Lafitt Pincay Jr., and Tobin Bronze, handled by the veteran Walter Blum. Pincay shoved Advocator In front midway through the back- stretch with Dr. Fager holding second, two lengths ahead of To bin Bronze. However, Baeza moved again with Dr. Fager as the field came around the final turn and regained a slight lead on the 5-year-old. Tobin Bronze was unable to make up any ground on the top pair. With three-sixteenths of a mile to go, Advocator inched in front, but Dr. Fager, holding the hedge, surged ahead and effectively blocked the late charging Fort Marcy ridden by Jorge Velasquez. Fort Marcy, the 1967 grass champion made a strong rush, but couldn't get through. He took third, a length and a quarter behind Advocator and the same margin ahead of the tiring Robin Bronze. Advocator returned $17 and $7 while Fort Marcy, the second choice at 3-1, paid $2.60 to show. Advocator earned $20,000 for second and Fort Marcy $10,000 and Tobin Bronze $5,000 of the $100,000 purse. The winner ran the mile and three sixteenths in 1:55 1-5. This was Dr. Fager's 17th win in 20 career starts and boosted his earnings to $965,952. Trainer Nerud said he would wait and see how his horse came out of the race before deciding whether to run him in the Woodward Sept 28 at Belmont, or consider the Washington, D.C. International at Laurel Nov. 11. Nerud said rumors were premature that he would retire the durable thoroughbred, recently syndicated for $3 million.
