He took only his personal belongings from the big house, and Hie picture of his mother. There were no portraits of his dad, only a few snap shots. But Johnny had that picture in his heart He totd Nystrom about his conference willi Goodhue, and the trainer said worriedly. "A stable .takes money. Johnny, an awful tot ,ol money." Johnny nodded, "1 probably won't have a stable like this long. But I'll have a stable. Even if it's only a one horse stable." Nystrom smiled. "You're a Hamilton, all ngh'l." he said. They held the spring sales two days later. There were no black foals in this group; two years in a row Gain had had sired that rarest ot the thoroughbreds, and the bidding nad been lively each lime. Adonis they had kept The other of the unusual pair had gone to a southern buyer Gooiihue was at the sale, acting as rashier The orices were high it was a moneyed year. Johnny said. "That should lake some of the pressure ofT." Goodhne looke-d at him squarely "AH ric.hl It's like this. Your dad signed some notes. He borrowed money from friends. Some body bought up those notes al a account, f've learned His alter nry was in to see me.'* "Somebody In a hurry for hi money?" Goodhue nodded. M A man namec Kovalt. Roger Kovall." Johnny tned* to read the law yer's eyes. He asked, "How mucl time hav* 1?." "They were due today. I got tree months' extension out of. im." Three months,** Johnny mused loud. "And how much will I ave to raise by then?" Goodhue expelled his breath lowly. "Nearly $100,000." PHREE months . f . Well, Johnny had Bella, who had been a sen- alion as a two-year-old. He had he unpredictable Adonis. They'd ick up a couple of claimers the icxt three months, and lose ouplo, but there wasn't that kind f money in claimers. He had •iclla—and Adonis. , . . He also hat! the greatest Jocey, for his money, in the country A boy named Tod Lacey. If any- jody could bring Adonis home in he Atwaler Stakes, it was Tod Je'd been with the Hamilton stages six seasons. He came to see ohnny that afternoon, at the cot- age. Tod looked unhappy. "You enow, Mr. Hamilton, my contrac' with your dad was up last week ,nd you didn't say nothing about— M Don't worry," Johnny fnler rupted. "We'll fix that up righ away." "I wish you'd told me that be 'ore,* 1 the jock said uncomfortably 'You see, there was no option o anything, and I thought—" Johnny felt a coldness grip him and his voice was rough. "You'v signed up with someone else?" The jock nodded miserably "With Mr. Kovalt yesterday after noon." It was almost funny. This man whom Johnny had never seen, wa seemingly determined to block h every move. Johnny fought fo control He said, "It's all righ Tod. I should have taken car* o you sooner." Tod gulped. "I'd like to quit hi right now. Mr. Hamilton. But th racing commission would have my roke, and selling out." Johnny wok his head and turned nway. He sat there, after Tod had left, icling the anger grow in him, ating this, mysterious Kovalt, inally he went out, climbed into ie convertible and drove off. KovaH Enterprises was in a airly large suite, in the Bradford lock, on the second floor. There •ere two girls and a young man the outer <^I5ce. One of the iris, n condescending blonde, said Ir. Kovalt wasn't busy just at the oment, but just what was the nn- ure of Johnny's business with im? "It's about some notes," Johnny vaded. "Some money I owe him.'* The blonde smiled and showed im in. LIE was slim, this Kovalt, with a sun In inn tnti, with beautifully ailored clothes and perfect, white eeth. He looked 30. but was prob- bly older. The white teeth shone n the confident smile with which ie greeted Johnny. "1 was rather xpecting you," he said, and held Dut his hand. Johnny ignored iL "I didn't come to "pay you any money. 1 me to ask some questions." Kovalt seemed not to notice the ury in Johnny's voice, or the denial of the handshake. He waved Tohnny to a chair. Seating himself, Kovalt said pleasantly, "I hop'e the questions won't prove too embarrassing. Is t another extension you want?" Johnny shook his head. "I was just wondering why you were in my hair. Why can't you find somo- aody else to haunt for awhile?" Roger Kovalt studied his nails "Try to be rational, Mr Hamilton. I haven't» any idea what you're talking aboiit." 'You know what I'm talking About, Mr. Kovalt." "Do I?" Johnny's hands clenched and he leaned forward in his chair "Even before I knew it, you knew the estate was in a bad way. You tried to hire my trainer, you did hire my best boy. Vou bought up dad's notes at a discount, and now you're screaming: for your money, bo you rt>nsider yotir actions rational?"
