And if he runs at, a winter track, ie is almost certain to tail off be- ore the big summer season is too ar along. • Citation, Whirlaway and Alsab vcre exceptions proving the rule, and they stuck like Mickey "Mantle. . The Preakness, two weeks after the Derby, is at a mile-and-three- out as his handler . attmpted to take a short cut to the Run for he Roses in '88. There is a long list of these, ...'.:',.. .",-, .Behave Yourself, Gallahadion and Jet Pilot, 'the iront runner, accomplished nothing worthwhile after bouncing down in front at Churchill Downs. Morvich never won again. Black Gold 'went wrong that season, and the story-book -horse set the style for winter horses in J_,ouisville: 'Plying .Ebony.-and Lawrin retired at the end of'the season. The Derby was -Bubbling Over's last race. Clyde Van ! Dusen brake down after the Derby- Burgoo King and Bold Venture broke down after the Preakness. Broker's Tip broke down in the Preakness. A bad leg sent Hoop Jr. to the farm after the Preakness. The tremendously-fast Johnstown started whistling during the running of the Arlington Classic. Count Fleet twisted his ankle during the running of the Belmont Sox Slug Yanks 13 -] Ajt Fenw?|; Phils Top Brooks sixteenths. The Withers Mile at Belmont Park, May 26, originally was a Jghtener for the Belmont Stakes at' a mile-and-a-half the true Derby distance, June 16. The English Derby coincides with the Belmont Stakes, so long ago racing men agreed that mid-June was the time to ask a three-year- old for his maximum effort. Then the sturdier fellows would on to the Lawrence Realization in late September. Stressing the Derby toll is the fact that there 'have been only eight Triple Crown winners .in 32 years —Sir 'Barton, .: Gallant Fox, Omaha, War Admiral, Whirlaway, Count Fleet, Assault and Citation. A frightul number of bright prospects have broken down in their trainers' efforts to get them to the julep journey so quickly and in unfavorable weather. I remember Pete Coyne complaining about .having to hurry Chance Sun, the Belniont Futurity winner of '34. 'The son of Chance Shot didn't make it, nor go inywhere else. I recall, old Alex Gordon moan- ng about having to hustle his favorite Coldstream, named after the 'amous Stud of that name, in '36. Stakes, had to be retired.
