Derby Day Outcome Highly Pleasing, Corum Reports | !t; RCHILL DOWNS, Louisville, Kfl May 8.— "We are all very happy ovei*the outcome of Derby day," said president Bill Corum today. "We had a fine race, a greater crowd by some 8,000 persons than were here last year. The pari-mutuel play was the third largest in the history of the race." The man who succeeded the late Col. Matt J. Winn as head of the historic Louisville plant and the countrys most famous race added, "We probably would have had even more people here had It not rained in practically every other place in the country. We were unlucky in that respect, but we were fortunate that it did not rain on the Derby. "We are deeply appreciative of the way in which the press and radio treated the seventy-sixth Derby, both in the advance stories, and the coverage of the race."
