THE MICHIGAN DAILY
. . . by Dick Lewis
NATIVE DANCERS have been known to bump and grind on'the is-
land of Java in Indonesia, in colorful bistros in New York's Green-
wich Village, and even at sideshows in the Ringling Brothers touring
circus. In sports circles though, there's one Native Dancer that's
caught the fancy of most turf fans all over the nation. This one's a
smooth-running, unbeaten three-year-old colt, currently rated as the
top choice in Saturday's Kentucky Derby.
When the Dancer; as he is affectionately called by the two dollar
bettors, strides to the post at colorful Churchill Downs for the 79th
renewal of the Derby, he'll have behind him a string of eleven suc-
cesses, including nine in a row as a two-year-old. During the 1952
campaign, Alf Vanderbilt's homebred amassed earnings of $230,495,
setting a new all-time high for a juvenile. Easy victories in the Youth-
ful, Flash, Saratoga Special, Grand Union Hotel, Hopeful, Belmont
Futurity and East View Stakes gained the oddly-named colt recog-
nition as Horse of the Year in two of racing's three major polls.
Following a warmup score in the $30,000 Gotham Stakes a
4 couple of weeks back, Native Dancer ran his string to eleven with
a breezing 41 length verdict over five rivals in the $100,000
Wood Memorial at Jamaica in New York City. That convincing
effort made the Dancer, even money prospect in the Derby Future
Book, a probable odds-on favorite when the strains of "My Old
Kentucky Home" waft among the thousands who make the an-
nual pilgrimage to the Louisville track.
Despite a forecast of rain by some Yankee weatherman, prospects
are for a crowd of better than 100,000 lovers of the sport to jam the
Blue Grass country and view first-hand the mile and a quarter
grind. Those who can't make it will be stationed at television sets
(millions of 'em) and movie theaters around the country.

Triple Crown Hopeful...
WHY ALL THIS CONFUSION over a horse race? The boys in the
know will tell you that this is the first leg on the three-year-old
championship, the other two legs being the Preakness and Belmont
Stakes. Few horses in turf history have completed the coveted triple,
but Vanderbilt's color-bearer looks like the best bet in years and thus
is getting the attention of even the most conservative critics.

Lost in all the fanfare for the Dancer are 13 other equine
standouts currently listed as starters under the standard 126
pound impost. Foremost of these is Mrs. Gordon Guiberson's Cor-
respondent, a fleet West Coast invader who has the added advan-
tage of steady Eddie Arcaro in the saddle. Arcaro has run off with
the Derby on five different occasions, more than any other
jockey, his last winner being Hill Gail in the 78th renewal. With
Arcaro up a week ago, Correspondent defeated five other Derby
eligibles in Keeneland's Blue Grass Stakes, clipping a fifth of a
second off Coaltown's track record in the process.
Royal Bay Gem, Chesapeake Stakes winner at Maryland earlier
this year, closed fast in Tuesday's Derby Trial but finished fourth
to a rank outsider, Cain Hoy Stable's Dark Star. That took a little
glitter off Royal Bay Gem, but at the same time vaulted Dark Star
near the top of the list of contenders. Dark Star's triumph over
the mile Derby Trial route was only 3/5 of a second off the track
record established by Hill Gail last year, and gave the New York im-
port $11,650 of the gross purse.

Count Fleet gelding has a good many supporters on the basis of three
wins in seven starts last year, good enough to pull down $72,146 in
purses. His best racing has come in Kentucky, where he annexed
1952 versions of the Breeders' Futurity at Keeneland and the Ken-
tucky Jockey Club Stakes at Churchill Downs.
The dark bay colt Invigorator, a Saxon Stable entry, also showed
promise in 1952 with scores in the Babylon and Cowdin at Aqueduct,
as did Mrs. Ada Rice's Mr. Paradise, a $105,860 winner, mostly on!
the basis of his lone stakes score in the Washington Park Futurity.
Other probable starters include Money Broker, Spy Defense,
Ace Destroyer, Hit the Spot, Curragh King, and Ram O'War.
Vanderbilt's Social Outcast, a stablemate to the Dancer and fourth
in the Wood Memorial, might also reach the post.
That's the lineup for this year's Derby, to be run the day after
tomorrow in the heart of the mint julep country. Long-striding Na-
tive Dancer remains the choice. How would you pick them?
