I AMERICAN WINS THE EB0R HANDICAP Race Rock, an American-bred horse, won the ,373 Ebor Handicap at York August 27 in a fine field of nine. Race Rock is seven years old and is by Rock Sand Anna Russell, by Russell Anna Garth, by King Eric, and was bred at Major Belmonts Nursery Stud. Sir Walter Gilbey owns Race Rock and bought him to lead Paper Money in his work for the Epsom Derby. The Ebor finish was a desperate one, and Race Itock won by a short head, the mile, and three-quarters in 3:03 3.
