Their origin is unknown. 1. "Nuggets uf Knowledge"— Gco W. Slimpson. AT hmch with some of the other owners at the club house, Jnhnny learned that the Stakes would be run. The purse, in a stake race, is a total of all the entry tees plus what money the track management misjlit care to add.

"Break her r.irh-; trv to get the jump," Johnny told Rusty. "Maytie she can hold the pace. It's a bad day to go around." That's the way riti.sly tried to play it.

He smiled. "I'm glad you could save something. I knew your dad; 1 knew him well. This isn'l a pleasant task, but it's my job—(or the time being." "He isn't taking Adonis?" Johnny asked hopefully. The man shook his head. "Not after what he learned about the colt." Then he smiled again. There's just an off-chance you may have put one over. Adonis looks fine (o me.
