Associated Press Sports Writer Many wedding presents are stored away and forgotten, but Mrs. Peter Duchin has one that moves around and makes headlines. The present is Mr. Right, and last Saturday he got big print by moving \ l k miles to win the Santa Anita Handicap and top money of $100,000. Mr. Right was presented to Mrs. Duchin by breeder George Zuaderer when she married the New York society musician. And the 5-yearold struck some mighty happy notes for Mrs. Duchin in 1966 and last year by winning four stakes, but Saturday^ was his biggest beat. It also was sweet music to his backersj who got a mutuel return of $41. 80, $22.60 and $14. Miguel Yanez sent Mr. Right to the front as the field of 15 turned tor home in the $145,000 race, and he drove to a two« length victory over another longshot, Jungle Road, who ov« ertook thtrd-place Ala Ram. Favored Tobin Bronze was never a factor, finishing ninth, 11 lengths behind the winner. The time was 2:04 3-5, second slowest In the 31-year history of the race, but the track was officially called slow. The slowest time was 2:05 2-5 by Thumbs Up In 1945, Bobby Brocato also won in 2:04 3-5 in 19 56.

(AP) ~ The Stn Francisco Giants have ev* erythlfig fort consistency. Mtnifgf Herman Franks and club officials are trying this thai tap with If several key performers, mainly Willie Mtys and Juan Marichal, had bean available til list season, says Franks, the Giants could have won the Na* tlonal League pennant instead of finishing second 10% games behind St. Louis* The Giants held third most of June, slipped to fifth in July, and stayed in second or third through August* Under the direction of physiotherapist Bert Gustafson, the Giants have worked hard, running three miles a day while In Case Grande. They didn't get down to serious baseball until arriving In Phoenix to begin the Cactus League schedule. "They Joked they were going to take up a collection to send me home," said Gustafson, who is 55 but looks 40, "but several told me It helped* "Strength and stamina have much to do with injuries* Unlike most athletes, baseball players use bursts of strength — running, hitting and throwing — and then they cool off* The muscles get stiff and tear." Muscle pulls could be lessened by beginning spring training running without cleats and not on grass, says Gustafson. What's good for Carl Yas- trzemski is good for the Giants, said Gustafson, so the Giants spent $5,000 Installing a small gym at Candelstick Park. Yas- trzemski attributed the Improvement in his performance to strenuous physical conditioning In the off season* Mays, who had his poorest season last year since joining the Giants in 1951, says he's "ready to go," and feels like playing "10 more years." Mays, who will be 37 May 6, hit .263 with 22 homers and 70 runs batted In while playing 141 games. The center fielder, whose 564 career homers Is topped only by Babe Ruth's 714, Ch'en he was hospitalized ;: with the^fluytor a week in July, a month in which he hit only one homer. Marichal, 29, reported on time this spring and says he is ready to regain the form which helped him win at least 20 games for four straight years. Last season he reported late, pitched only once after straining a hamstring muscle on Aug. 4 and finished 14-10. Jim Davenport, 34, wltti back and leg ailments, played 124 games and hit .275. He worked with Gustafson before spring training began and is apparently recovered. Davenport, who played with Mays and 1967 Cy Young Award winner Mike McCormlck on the first Giant team in San Francisco in 1958, has taken over third with Jim Ray Hart moving to left field. The return of Davenport to third and the acquisition of Ron Hunt gives the Giants better defense in the infield, says Franks. And Hart, who hit .289 with 26 homers and 99 RBL likes left better.

Even his decision to retire apparently was prompted by Berry's concern that Injuries, which limited his 1967 play to six games, would affect his performance in the future. "I don't think it would be right of m« to try to continue playing when I don't feel I could give the team the kind of season it has a right to expect," the 35- year-old split end said Sunday. Berry, who overcame physical limitations through dedication and study, caught 631 passes for 9,275 yards and 68 touchdowns during his 13-year NFL career.

Surging from three strokes behind to tie Dickinson In a dramatic stretch run, Welskopf, blew it with a closing pair of bogeys and his 40-year-old foe walked away with the $20,000 top prize. "1 hate a finish like that," said a dead-panned Dickinson, "but rve got the check in my pocket." The dramatic last-round duel, starting with the two men in a deadlock, was so tense that Weiskopf posted five bogeys and dlcklnson three bogeys and a double bogey. U was the worst round of the tournament for both of them. Dickinson wound up with a par 72 for a 13-under-par 275. Welskopf took a 74 for 276. Welskopf, who missed a 10- foot putt at the I8lh that would have thrown the match Into a sudden-death playoff, had the satisfaction of taking over the lead In the 1968 money-winning race. His $12,000 check ran Ids bankroll to $52,546 and shoved him ahead of Canadian George Knudson, who failed to survive the 36-hole cut here following consecutive victories at Phoenix and Tucson.
