Saturday At the Races Wins Arlington s Riihest Race CHICAGO — — C. R. Mac Stable's California bred T. V, Lark, a 30-1 shot, Saturday won the $212,000 Arlington Futurity, richest race ever held in Illinois, by a neck in Arlington Park. The two-year-old colt, winner of only one race in six previous starts, was a mutuel field horse along with three others in the stampede of 20 juveniles for the winner's chunk of $150,312. T. V. Lark, owned by C. R. MacCoy of Paramount, Calif., scored by a neck over favored Edgehill Farm's Baliy Ache. T. A. Grissom's Luruilah was third a nose away and Farm To Market, owned by R. W. Wilson and Mrs. T. P. Hull Jr. was fourth one and one-quarter lengths behind. T. V. Lark, coming from the outside under the urging of jockey Alex Maese, covered the six furlongs in 1:12 2/5. The son of Indian Hemp-Miss Larksfly, by Heeifly pAid his backers in the crowd of 26,846 $68. $17 and $7. Bally Ache, ridden by Samuel Boulmetis, returned $4.40 and $3.20 while Larullah, with John Heckman aboard, paid $6.40. Won One Other T. V. Lark, whose only other victory was in a three-furlong maiden race at Santa Anita last March, picked up one of the largest winning checks ever presented. It was topped only by the award at Garden State In New Jersey which last year grossed nearly $300,000 with a net of $175,000. Until now. T. V. Lark had won only a total of $11,500. Second prize was worth $30,000. third $20,000 and fourth, $10,000. Jockey Maese said, "11 Creary, scored by three-quarters of a length over the Brookmeade Stable's favored Sword Dancer, only three-year-old in the field of 10 handicap performers. Sword Dancer was closing with a rush at the finish although carrying top weight of 124 pounds. Babu started in the 1 3/16 mile race with a feathery 112 pounds in the saddle. Mrs. Tilyou Christopher's Amerigo finished third, beaten by a head for second money by the on-rushing Sword Dancer. Amerigo carried 117 pounds and had to withstand a foul claim before the result was made official. Foul Disallowed Eric Guerin, riding Alfred Vanderbilfs Village Idiot, claimed Amerigo, with Howard Grant up, interfered with his mount at the head of the stretch. The movies, however, failed to show a foul. Babu was coupled as an en try with inside tract and paid $47.80, $10.80 and $6.30. Sword Dancer, even money favorite, returned $3.00 and $2.70. and Amerigo $4.60 to .show. Babu was timed in 1:56 2/5 on a fast track, compared with the course record of 1:54 4/5 set by Walt, a three-year-old, in the Dwyer last Saturday. Babu went around horses coming into the home stretch and took the lead, while Shoemaker came through a hole with the Dancer. But Willie couldn't quite make the grade with the favorite. Bald Eagle, who had won the Suburban Handicap, was fourth followed by Greek Star, Village Idiot, Oh Johnny, Inside Tract, Nivrag and Warhead.

Aparicio Keeps Chisox Rolling CHICAGO —ifP)— Luis Aparicio, the little bandit from Maraciabo, Venezuela, has Chicago White Sox rivals cursing with admiration. The 25-year-old shortstop, the solid center of Chicago's well knit defense, is keeping the Sox in contention for the American League pennant not only with his fielding but also his superb base-running. Luis has been the American League's top base stealer since breaking in the majors in 1956. As a rookie he had 21 stolen thought we were dead on thejof Scottish-Meridian out of stretch turn. T. V. Lark broke j real good and we were laying third coming to the quarter pole. Then ail at once he backed up on me in fifth place and I just about gave up. Then {worth $72,545. 1 got him clear when we straightened out and he set sail." Bally Ache's jockey, Boulmetis, said "We were laying second and everything seemed perfect when we took the lead real nice on the turn. He just got beat, that's all."

Luis not only goes but he usually gets there. He has been caught stealing only eight times and three of these involved the tough attempts at third base or home plate. Frank Lane, general manager of Cleveland, recently said "when you walk Aparicio it's like giving him a two-base hit." No Peer in Field In the field, Luis has no peer in either league.

Rich- ROYAL NATIVE TAKES MONMOUTH OAKS UPSET OCEANPORT, N.J. — iJV) — Royal Native, purchased by Perne L. Grissom for $40,000 last spring, came through with a surprise front-running two and three-quarter length victory Saturday in the $50,000 Added Monmouth Oaks as Silver Spoon ran third. C. V. Whitney's Silver Spoon, winner of five stakes on the west coast, disappointed for the second time in eastern races for three-year-old fillies when she wound up beaten by two and one-half lengths for second money by Mrs. M. Kein's Indian Maid. Previously, Silver Spoon had finished second in the Delaware Oaks. "She was sharp as a tack," said jockey Joe Culmone after sending Royal Native over the !>/« miles in 1:50 3/5 under 113 pounds. Indian Maid carried 117 and Silver Spoon 121. Royal Native, a daughter of Royal Charger-Native Girl who wai third in back of Silver Spoon and Indian Maid in an allowance race last week, had won only two of her previous eight starts this year. But she was in the money in four others. For her first stakes victory, Royai Native paid $15.50 and $13 .20. Indian Maid returned $7 .20 to place. There was no show betting in the six-horse field. Geechee Lou was fourth, Secret Valley fifth and Sword Woman, a Canadian invader, last. The victory was worth $35,150. BABU SCORES UPSET OVER SWORD DANCER NEW YORK — Chilean-bred Babu ended racing at 56-year old Jamaica race track Saturday with a stunning upset vie tory over Sword Dancer in the $113,300 Brooklyn Handicap before a roaring, sweltering crowd of 34,521. A lot of thrilling races have been seen at this old track and Sword Dancer's late stretch charge in a futile effort to catch Babu must rate with the most exciting of all. Babu, owned by William C. Tartee and ridden by, Conn Mc TWENTYONE GUNS HAC IT IN THE STRETCH DEL MAR, Calif. — Twentyone Guns, under the whip of George Taniguchi, staged a fierce stretch drive Saturday and won Ae $21,950 San Diego Handicap over a mile and one sixteenth at Del Mar. A. G. Vanderbilfs Find was second by three-quarters of a lengths and Solid Fleet was third. Twentyone Guns, carrying 115 pounds, was timed at 1:42. The winner paid $17.80, $4.00 and $2.80. Find returned $2.40 and $2.20 and Solid Fleet $2.80. Twentyone Guns, flying the silks of Mr. and Mrs. J. Eyraud, was outrun until turning Into the stretch. Then, Taniguchi took him wide and whipped him to the wire. Find, high-weighted at 121, was always in striking distance, but couldn't match Twentyone Guns' spirited rally in the sprint to the wire. Others in the race for three- year-olds and up, in order of finish, were R, S. Lesage's Coronat, Mrs. A. W. Ryan's Alibi Blue, Royal Clove, I Step and Coup De Vent.

But even for Los Angeles— where a man with two heads might not be considered cc centric unless he wore only one hat—this game presents some curious aspects. It's unusual, of course, for a .second all-star game to be played at all. Ordinarily, this is a once-a-year production. But that's hardly the most peculiar feature of this game. For ono. thing, it's being played at 4 oclock in the afternoon (6 p.m. central daylight time). Up to now. the British are the only people who have ever scheduled anything for 4 oclock in the afternoon, and the best excuse they can find is hoisting tea cups. in Strange Park For another thing, the game has not overwhelmed the local population — although it's the first all-star game in west coast history and many American League stars will be mak ing their first appearance here. In addition, many big city newspapers • which normally .send writers to the all-star game will not be represented Monday. Then, of course, there is the scene of the exercise. The game will be played in the strangest park in the big leagues — maybe in all ba.se ball. But, whatever the odd angles — and there's a sound reason for nearly every one of them — the game will count as part of the all-star scries that be gan 26 years ago. And it should make a pile of money for the players' pension fund. The American Leaguers, who lost the first 1959 all-star game 5-4 at Pitt.sburgh, still lead in the series, 15 games to 11. But their manager, Casey Stengel of the Yankees, has had terrible luck running all-star teams. Casey has won only three games, lost twice that many. Fred Haney of Milwuu- the National League naturally has resulted in a lot of cheap home runs. But — and this Is something that happens in nearly every game — a lot of good solid line drives that might be doubles anyplace else are reduced to singles here. The reason is that thoy are knocked down by the screen far short of the tli.s tance they normally would carry. Stengel announced a couple of last-minute lineup changes. B o b b y Richardson. New York Yankees inficldcr, was named to replace his ailing teammate. G i I McDougald. Tony Kubek. Yank infieldor- outfielder, was selected to Inkcj Harvey Kuenn's place.

Television is another big reason this game is not likely to break the all-star attendance record of 69,831, set at Cleveland in 19.15. Los Angeles will not be blacked out and this will be the first — and probably the last — baseball game ever televised from the Coliseum and shown locally. Big TV Audience The 4 oclock starting time, .incidentally, was chosen so the game will pick up the big evening television audience in the East.
