Jones, Louisville, Ky.-UP)-The 78th I Kentucky Derby looked very much j like some Derbies of other years today with the combination of a Calumet-owned horse, trainer Ben Jones and jockey Eddie Arcaro playing the familiar favorite's role. The combine moved front and center f o r - t h e S100.000 ad-".ed run around Churchill Downs Saturday wlien Hill Gail took wings yesterday and fairly flew over a mile to smash the track record in the Derby Trial. With Arcaro merely flicking his whip in Hi!! Gail's lace, the big 1 son of Bull Lea reeled off the mile in 1:36.6 to clip one-Iifth second off the track standard and leave eight other derby eligible* far up the track. The closest, Mrs. Gordon Guiberson's California-owned Arroz, was five lengths back. And some 42 lengths back came no less a well- rated candidate than Alfred Van- derb.ilt's temperamental Cousin- blowing his last chance to prove his right to be in the Derby post parade. · As a result of the prep the odds on Hill Gail dropped to P-5 today and he may go to the post at even shorter odds. Derby fans, especially those from the Blue Grass country, like nothing better than to pour their money into th? mu- tuel machines on a horse owned by Mrs. Warren Wright's Calumet Farm, trained by Jones and ridden by the big-nosed Italian from New York with a magic touch. Four times in the last 11 years the devil-red silks of Calumet Farm, built on a baking powder fortune, have been carried home first in America's most famous horse race. They were Whirlaway (1941),'Pensive U8:4). Citation (1948) and Ponder (1343). And each time the winner was saddled by Plain Ben out of Farnell, Mo. In addition Jones tightened the saddle girth on Lav.-rin in 1938 for a total of five Derby triumphs. That's a record for trainers. Twice Arcaro has been up on a Calumet winner (Citation a n d Whirlaway) and to these two he ' adds Lawrin and Hoop Jr. (1945) for a mark never matched by a / jockey. In f a c t the combination of Jopes and Arcaro has never been beaten in a Kentucky Derby.

' The hard-throwing, 22-year-old lefthander, three weeks out of the Army, made his first major league start in 19 months yesterday, and proceeded to tame the Chicago Cubs with a smooth seven-hit performance. 8-2. Manager Eddie Sawyer couldn't hide his pleasure. He said Simmons was able to finish at his own pace after th« Phils treated him to a 4-1 lead. In the, season's first head-on collision of East and, the favored B r o o k l y n ' Dodgers strengthened their grlo on the National League lead by turning back the St. Louis Cardinals on the masterful clutch pitching of Preacher Roe, 4-1. The Dodgers thus Increased their lead to a full game and a half ov?r Chicago, beaten by the Phils, and the Cincinnati Keds. who fell victim to the N?w York Giants at Cincinnati. 2-1. · Maglie, a 23-game winner lor -the senior league champions in 1951, limited the Reds to three hits in outdueling Cincinnati's gangling Ewell Blackwell, and he also accounted for the winning run when he singled Alvin Dark home in the ninth. Blackwell pitched a good four-hitter.
