LOUISVILLE-Ponder, doughty
son of a former derby winner,
came flying in the final furlong
today to win the 75th Kentucky
Derby going away as a great crowd
of over 90,000 roared its amazed
disbelief.
So far back a half-mile from
home that he appeared hopelessly
beaten, the Calumet Farm's beauty
turned it on as the field of 14
entered the long stretch at
Churchill Downs and made the
favored Olympia and all the rest
look like they were standing still.
Forty yards from the finish the
dark brown son of Pensive flashed
past Greentree Stable's Capot, his
last rival for the $91,600 prize,
and went under the wire three full
lengths to the good.

LOS ANGELES-Mel Patton of
the University of Southern Cali-
fornia bettered the world record
for the 220 yard dash today with a
sprint of 20.2 seconds, shortly af-
ter he ran the fastest 100 yards in
history, unofficially.
Officials at the dual meet be-
tween USC and UCLA held on the
UCLA track, said they would cer-
tify th'"'220-yard performance and
apply for acceptance of the mark.
Patton 45 minutes earlier ran
the 100 yards dash in 9.1 seconds
with a 6.5 miles per hour wind
behind his back.
The wind gauge for the 220,
however, registered 3.3 miles per
hour which is under the 4.473
allowable.
