mLM Monmouth Memos By FRED GALIANI - Big Buzz Oyer Unusual Ruling Garden State Had One in 1945 Delaney Anent Del Brier Farm MONMOUTH PARK, Oceanport, N. J., June 15. — The big buzz around the track this morning was a discussion about the unusual ruling which occurred at Suffolk Downs on Saturday. In a race there, Time for Speed and Greek Stadium finished in a dead-heat to win, but the stewards disqualified the latter for interfering with Rose Beauty. In their official placing, they moved Rose Beau£y up in the dead-heat to win with Time for Speed and placed Greek Stadium third, all of which got the horsemen talking and arguments flying. A majority of them shought that Rose Beauty should have been second, rather than moved into a dead-heat with Time for Speed, but there were others who were equally insistent that the ruling was correct. And the incident also prompted Horace Wade to remark incisively, "What does that do to the time of the horse? Rose Beauty, who was beaten a length and a half, now moves into first, but the time of the winning race was not what she ran it in." When asked what they would do in such a case as happened at Suffolk, the stewards wisely countered with, "Well cross that bridge when we come to it." The unique ruling recalled another odd instance in the case of disqualification and a dead-heat that sent yours truly to the record books, and, after some research, revealed the following: On August 7, 1945, at Garden State Park, the first race finish was Lilson, Worries and a dead-heat for third between Attune and Counsellor. Lilson was disqualified by the stewards and placed second, then Worries was thrown out and placed third. Now when they came to the dead-heat, the stewards dissolved it, placing Attune, who had been bothered, in first place. But what happened to Counsellor, who also finished third and had in no way intcrf erred with any horses to effect the outcome of the result? He wound up out of the money! After the dissolution of the dead-heat, Counsellor was. placed fourth and off the board. Believe it or not.
