t ! Bold Venture Goes Lame and Retires I 2 I NEW YORK, N. Y., May 25. Morton L. Schwartz Bold Ven- J I ture, winner of the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, ! states that the son of St. Germans will not be seen under silks again j this year. Max Hirsch, who developed the son of St. Germans and j J Possible, for Mr. Schwartz, reported today that the colt had bowed a tendon and had to be thrown out of training. I Before his Kentucky Derby victory Bold Venture was winner of j an overnight race at Jamaica, so that he is forced into retirement j unbeaten this season in his three starts. With that overnight victory I and his Kentucky Derby and Preakness triumphs, his earnings were j 5,800. It is a particularly severe calamity at this time by reason of the prominence of this colt for the Belmont Stakes, to be run at Belmont Park June 6. After his defeat of Brevity in the Kentucky Derby and Granville in the Preakness he took his proud place at j the top, and the running of the Withers Saturday, which went to J White Cockade, with Brevity again beaten and Red Rain another ! possibility more soundly beaten, Bold Venture was generally con- sidered, by long odds, best of all the Belmont probables. Bold Venture was on the track in the morning and breezed j along for an easy six furlongs in company with Malbrouk, stepping j it in 1:15. After having been returned to the stable, it was found I i he had bowed a tendon of the off foreleg. j . 4
