- , settled Secretariat finally blows up Associated Press LOUISVILLE, Ky. - A stormy five - year - old controversy surrounding the winner of the 1968 Kentucky Derby has died quietly as the deadline passed for further appeal of a ruling that denied the gold winner's trophy to first - place finisher Dancer's Image. "It's a settled issue," Bob Gorham, resident manager of Churchill Downs, said Thursday. Gorham said the old winner's trophy will be engraved and presented to Mrs. Gene M a r k e y 's Calumet Farm, owner of second - place finisher Forward Pass, as soon as some paperwork is finished.

The deadline passed this week for further court appeals by Peter Fuller, owner of first - place finisher Dancer's Image, "I think it's a closed book," Stuart Lampe, one of Fuller's attorneys said Thursday. "We fought a long, hard batte ... He Fuller lost and he's a good loser and that's it." Earlier, attorneys for Fuller, a Boston automobile dealer, had indicated Fuller. planned a further appeal to the Kentucky, Court of Appeals of a recent ruling by Franklin Circuit Court. The circuit court dismissed Fuller's appeal of a Kentucky Racing Commission ruling that awarded the $5,000 Derby gold trophy to Mrs. Markey. The controversy over the 1968 racing classic began after it was discovered that the Fuller colt ran while under the influence of the drug phenylbutazone, an analgesic forbidden for use in races under Kentucky racing rules.
