Hooligan at the jump-off, looking all legs and speed, with Lady I.iick trailing him by a length into the first turn. Almost neck and neck at (he fln- iili, stride for stride, they swept past the boxes. Johnny was up, and shouting, but so was everybody else. He couldn't tell, [rom (his angle. He couldn't be sure who had won, as they swept past ' the wire. It was, the loud speaker announced, a photo finish. Resniis would 'be announced as soon as available. H was only a mailer of minutes, but it seemed like hours lo .lohnny. Then the numbers went up. The olher owner coughed. He said, "You'll accept a check?" "With pleasure," Johnny answered. They left .'or California the and of the week. Adonis was shaping up. The colt's hoof was completely well now. They planned just one race for him before the Pioneer. H rained the night before Ihe tightener. It wasn't a heavy ram, but it was steady, and the track would be far from dry. The rain had stopped by morning, and when Johnny got out lo the track, he saw they were drying it out. This was accomplished by a strange looking contraption he'd never seen in use before. It was rmiijhly the size of a steam roller, but instead of Ihc mair.molh front wheel, there was extended in its place > huge and red hot steel plate, carried some few inches above the track's surface This plate w* kepi hot by Ihe jets of flame that played on it from above. There would be no mud test for Adonis here. The fourth wat a m jie race for three-,yc3r-oltU, and there were important colts and nllies entered. Sinbad, a Kovalt colt, would be running in the Pioneer. Johnny briefed RusSy on Adonis. Then he wenl out front lo hold his thumbs. H was no race for anybody with a weak heuit. There wcro loo many good horses in it, including a sleeper named Holiday. ... JJUT Adonis made his bid. He seemed lo be Hying, a jet Hash, leaping ahead in a powerful spurt of speed; going on lo win by two clean lerigllis. Sinbad was second. Back at the stable, Husly said. "Two carrots for thai one, huh, Mr. Hamilton?" Johnny nodded. "And $500 extra for Rusly Sloan." With the money from. Ihe Pioneer, he could buy up some promising foals. With Ihe preslige from winning it, he could jack up the prices on his own spring crop. Perhaps, he thought, he could get Challenger back, and Bella and Melody. Bui he knew thai Kovail would never part wilh those horses. Not thai he needed them, bul it would put > rival back In the field. The morning of the Pioneer Handicap was a hot one, and It climaxed a period of hot days. The strip was getting harder every day, and Johnny remembered Adonis' weakness. The colt had cracked a hoot at Alwater on just such a track. They gave him rope work, and ran him very little. Husly spent all his available time with the colt. This hot morning, the jockey looked unhappy. "If he remembers Atvvater, this track might scare him." Johnny was almost afraid lo go and watch this one. Ten furlongs for the finest three-year-olds In the game. With a jockey only a year out of the apprentice class with an unpredictable colt and a M-jear-old ownw-traiiwf. u didn't look much like a winning combination in a grind » rugged a* this one. The big names w«re there. F.legy ind Sinbad, I.ady Caroline and Warrior; impressive horses from wealthy stables, stables that didn't need success on the tracks to maintain themselves; hobby rta- bles. In the bo* next to Johnny's. >n owner said, "I thought Kovalt got that colt of yours, boy. H« got lh« rest, didn't he?" Jotmny nodded. "Just about." "It's a man'i job. running • slable these days," Ihe owner went on. "I surely was sorry lo hear abonl your dad." He paused. "You plan to sell that Adonis?" 'Adonis will never be for salt." And Johnny held his thumbs is h« said it. If lie wasn't a man by now, k« never would be. All quiet, Ihe, and then th« expelled breath ss th« webbing lifted. " Jgl-EGY (altered. Sinbad moved by. The Kovalt horse was running second now. looking like Ihe lojjical choice to beal the I.ady From the fifth spot, Adonis began to move up. Even seeing il, H was thai h»rd to believe. Adonis swept past t.ady Caroline as though she were hitched to a post, and he was crowding Sinbad a good half furlong from the wire. Sinbad ran his heart ovil In that sprint, bul il wasn't nearly enough; it looked almost like h« had quit. The sighl of Adonis, coming back to the winner'i circle. w«s something Johnny would renumber all his life. Rusty's face was glowing, and his eyes were wet. He said. "I'm going to rub him down myself Mr. Hamilton. U'i no job for a swipe." Johnny said, "You're going lo be the boss around hero lor a while. Rusly. I'm takng a plant home." "Trouble?" Rusty asked. Johnny shook hl« head, "I'm going lo get some questions answered." (T> Bt WMCT, Memphift.
