Riva Ridge was time in ;57 1-5. "I lost a penny by one-fifth of a .second but I don't mind," Mrs. Tweedy said. "It was more important that he worked free and loose and seemed to enjoy running again. In his workout last Friday he seemed to be tense," she said. Laurin, who had to ease up with Secretariat when the colt Tweedy, and his trainer, Lucien came down with a virus after Laurin, were undecided wheth- being defeated early in August er or not to commit Secretariat in the Whitney Stakes at to the race in light of his recent Saratoga, predicted a fast illness that interrupted his running of Saturday's race, training. But the son of Bold "It will be a fast running Ruler brought satisfied smiles race. There will be no first half to their faces with a sensational in :48, I'll tell you that.

"This was the first time we asked him for speed. We were bringing him along slowly because he did not want to knock him out and put him right back to where he was after he got sick. We called on him for speed today for the first time and he really had it," the jockey said. Eight horses have been invited to start in the Marlboro Cup. Three others. Cougar 2nd and Kennedy Road, both trained by Charlie Whittingham, and Key To The Mint, conditioned by Elliott Burch, also worked out five furlongs Wednesday.
