Jockey Blown From Horse 104th Way To Lose Money By HARRY GRAYSON NEA Sports Editor New York—(NEA)—When False Hope lived up to his name at Bay Meadows the other afternoon, throwing Johnny Longden and trying to clear the fence, there-were 103 ways for the best horse to lose. . •.,.-..'•• ••• There he was until they pulled him off—a horse riding a rail.. Until False Hope found -this new method of destroying par-mutuel tickets, turf sages contended there were 102 ways for the favorite to blow the duke. A thoroughbred perfectly fit in the paddock can develop a .fever going to the post. He can be left at the post. He can stumble at the start, be knocked off stride,: go to his knees, fall. He can a shoe. The saddle cloth can slip. He, can bear out on a turn, run into a iblind switch when a hole closes and have to be taken up. He can "bleed," bow a tendon, pop an osselet, break a leig or step in a. hole and twist an ankle." Famous jockeys have let up or pulled up, mistaking another, post for the pi-oper finish. Graybeards speaking from sad experience argued that there were 301 ways for a.runner to blow the top prize when Trainer Bob Collins found- another.-new. formula.-for^doing it at Gulfsti-eam.Park the other day Lone Sentry turned, into the stretch three .lengths ahead. At this point Apprentice Leonard Jacquez reached bade with- ; 'his whip to remind the sprinter that Ihe straightaway still lay ahead. The sudden movement aggravated an old injury suffered during World War II. The b9y threw his shoulder out of joint, was not only unable to help Lone Sentry in the drive, but actually was lucky to hang on at all with his one good arm, finishing second. With another New York racing season launced at Jamaica, the boys were recalling the many ex- k-aordinary ways hoss players have helped themselves to, go broke. Horace Wade, the racing secretary and tub thumper, topped them all. "A few years ago., on a a raw afternteon at Roekinghain SPark, a 4-5 favorite, Singing Slave, lee by four lengths at the head of the sLretc.h with Warren Yarberry rid- ng as close as a horseman on! a tatue," relate^ Wade. "Past the tands the filly twinkled, with the est of the field floundering behind her. Some of her supporters aced for the cashiers' windows.'It iure looked like a pay day for hem. As far as they were concerned the race was finished. "Only a miracle could beat Sing- ng Slave, and you're right, it hap- >ened. With four lengths to spare ind no more jumps to travel, a lurricane, shunted up the coastline "rom Florida, vented its fury 6n Rockingham Park. "Singing Slave reeled from the mpact, then battled on determinedly, but she did it alone. ."Before 10,000 pairs of unbelieving eyes, the heavy wind lifted Back From Florida Jockey Yarberry completely out:of the saddle, turning him end over •nd in the infield." Why don't more horse players cut their throats?

Young Lou Rossini made them last, night at a banquet honoring him as coach of tfte year in a poll of .Philadelphia, basketball writers. Rossini, who led Columbia through a 22-game, unbeaten regular season; says the emphasis should, be.taken off the "win complex." The 29-year-old coach also recommends setting up uniform academic standards' throughout the country. Rossini says, "We can't have various conferences working along different lines." Even as Rossini made his suggestion, New York District Attorney, Frank Hogan had his men searching for three men involved in the recent scandal. Hogan identified, a fourth suspect. He is William Ri vlin, who already has served a prison term for the same offense. Rivlin was convicted of trying to "fix a game in January of 1949. The plan fell through when George Washington's Pave Shapiro, in cooperation with detectives set a trap for Rivlin and' three other men.
