Horse Sense. .'.
THE SUBJECT of horses comes up
almost daily in our lives. Either
someone is saying "that's a horse of a
different color" or "that's a horse on
you" or just plain "my wife nags
me." But each year, as spring wends
its weary way into summer, the
genus equus takes on a special sig-
nificance-the Kentucky Derby raises
its snout.
No one has ever, more than
twice daily that is, accused us of
dodging either a divorcee or a
debateable issue - particularly
the former. But Derby dope, 1940
variety, will be discussed more
fully in a later column; this one
will be devoted to Professor Cor-
ner--on the intimate inside. If
you can't answer any of these

questions, run, don't walk, to your
nearest drug store and buy Vol.
III of Aristotle's Metaphysics.
1. When a railbird says "a horse has
been declared" does that gentleman
mean he told customs officials he was
importing the animal? If not, what?
2. Is a "maiden race" one in which
six girls run and the winner marries
Col. Matt Winn? If not, what?
3. A "sweepstakes" is a race where-
in the winner wins all the other
horses. If not, what?
4. A "claiming" race is one where-
in every owner claims his horse can
win and after the race claims he
should have won. If not, what?
5. An "overnight" race is one which
starts at 11 p.m. and ends early the
next morning. If not, what?
6. What horse won the first Ken-
tucky Derby?

7. In what year?
8. What horse won the 1939 Derby?
Who was second and third?
9. Has any jockey ever ridden four
Derby winners?
10. The Derby distance is now a
mile and a quarter. Was it ever
thus? More?\ Less?
11. The correct Louisville pro-
nunciation of "Derby" is like Al
Smith's hat or like the English
lord's.
12. A filly (female for horse) has
never won the Derby.
Of course, we could continue
for an interminable length of
time with these questions but we
don't think you can answer half
of them. Allot eight for each
question and a score of 75 or over
puts you in the upper brackets,
50 or over in the middle and un-
der 50 in our class,
Here are the answers:
1. Declared means "scratched"-
any resemblance to fleas is purely
coincidental.
2. A maiden race is one in which
the entered horses, have never, in
any country, won a race on the "flat."
Match races and private sweepstakes
are excluded, however.
3. A sweepstakes is a race publicly
declared open to all complying with
its conditions, to be fulfilled before a
given time.
4. A claiming race is one in which
every horse running therein may be
claimed by owners who have started
a horse at that meeting.
5. An overnight race is one for
which entries close on the day pre-
ceding.
6. Aristides.
7. 1875,
8. Johnstown, Challedon andi
Heather Broom in that order.
9. No. Isaac Murphy and Earl
Sande each had a leg up on three.
10. It was a mile-and-a-half from
1875 to 1895..
11. Al Smith wins this time.
12. Regret won in 1915.

and Dennis walked. Walt Siera bunt-
ed to Ruehle whose throw to third
was too late to catch Grady, and the
bases were loaded.
At this point catcher George
Harms let one of Barry's pitches elude
him, Grady scoring. Barry, who
didn't appear to have his usual stuff
yesterday, recovered sufficieitiy to
fan the next two batters, but Joe
Borovich walloped a line single to
center and two more runs were in.
Oxley followed with another hit
to center field and Heffernan with
his second hit of the day to make the
score, 5-1. Barry forced Shada to
pop out and retired for the afternoon.
Mickey Stoddard took over the
mound duties next and was a bit
more successful. Mickey was touched
for two hits and an unearned run in
the three innings he worked. Lyle
Bond followed Stoddard and turned
in two scoreless innings, while Tom-
my Netherton, Colorado senior mak-
ing his first appearance in the Var-
sity lineup, yielded the final Normal
run in the ninth.
In the meantime, Michigan had
scored once in the fifth on a two-
bagger by Steppon and a single by
Trosko, and again in the seventh when
Bud Chamberlain singled and Oxley
muffed Ruehle's long fly to left field.
George Ruehle's batting appeared
to be the only bright spot in the
Wolverine defeat. The blonde first-
baseman, who hadn't been doing so
well at the plate previously, banged
out three singles and a double to lead
the batters for the day.
