Then Challenger began eating up that two-length lead as they swept Into the north. Johnny saw something then that made his heart leap. Beggar's Ride had gone into the turn too fast: he Rusty was limping a little as the was swinging wide toward'the to be all right. Johnny noticed the tight line of his lips, the pain in hts eyes. Nystrom's hand was on Johnny's shoulder, and it tightened at the sound of the shot. * • • 'T'HE Futurity was run two dnys later, and Challenger was as ready as she'd ever be. His workouts had been impressive. Rusty, despite a still sprained ankle, was conficjetit. There'd be S20.000 in this one, a big bite out of the debt. Nystrorn told Johnny. "Don't put a dime on this one. With two-year- olds, you can't tell. Challenger's got the pole, and that's a big advantage in these short grinds, bu! don't bet a penny." ft was a six-furlong contest. It would start near the south turn to permit a front-of-the-stands finish. Johnny 4»cnt down to stand next to the rail, near the boves. It was a dull and mu^gy day; the track was heavy from last night's spasmodic showers. Today would be the test, Johnny decided. If he won, he felt it would be an indication of the season's luck. There was no valid reason for it; there would be bigger and belter races later in the season. But it would be an encouraging start. There was some commotion a*, the starting gate. Among the young ones there was always confusion. Then, for one momcnl, all was calm. Challenger had the pole, but he didn't get the jump. A Kovalt entry, Baggar's Ride, who fiankc-d Challenger, shot from the sale lo an early half length toad. It was two full Icnslhs in Die backstrcu-h and Beggar's Ride was on Hie rail, moving smoothly, matching Challenger stride tor stride, m.iir.tam- rode the rail. Challenger under control and driving. It was in the bag. Beguar's Ride was coming down toward the groove aRnin under Tod's urging. But there was still plenty of room for Rusty. Nothinq happened. Rusty didn't drive for the hole. The Kovalt entry came down again, along the •ail. and Tod's bat was swinging now. Dazedly. Johnny watched llie straining Challenger follow Beggar's Ride home. Rusty had not only failed to take advantage of the hole; he'd actually pulled Challenger on the turn. Johnny went over to the stable and found N'ystrom already there. The trainer's eyes were hard. Rusty came in, handing Challenger over to one of the swipes. The boy trembling. lie was .•lose to tears. JOHNNY remembered then that •' it was tlie same place Rusty had taken a spill, two days before. It was the same spot that cost them a colt. He said, "Was it because of the spill. Rusty?" The jock nodded, his eyes searching Johnny's face. Then'he was looking at the ground. "I— lost my nerve. There isn't anything you can say or do'll make me feel any worse than I do now. 1 didn't have the stuff when it counted . . ." iN'ystrorn said. "Nobody got to you, with the long green?~Kid. you pullet) that horse!" Rusty looked up defiantly. "Nobody got to me. I was yellow " There was misery in his voice. Johnny said quietly. "It's all richt. Musty. We can't win >ir. all. Vott aren't ihe first good buy vfho's had a jinx." (To Be Continued) Television- Ton ite, Tomorrow WMCT, Memphis.
