Determine, Imbros Need Rest Very Soon Molter HOLLYWOOD PARK, Inglewood, Calif., June 16. "Both Determine and Imbros will have had racing aplenty by the time the current meeting ends, and it is my firm belief that they then will need and deserve a rest," said Bill Mol-ter, trainer of Andy Crevolins very successful stable, here today. "Determine goes in the Westerner, and that probably will be his last race for some months, as hell likely be weighted out of the Gold Cup," Molter continued. "These horses have been hard campaigned. Determine has never been let up on since he went in training as a yearling, and Imbros had only a short respite following Del Mar last year. "Horses are not steel machines; they are flesh and blood and must be treated as such if the stable hopes to realize their full potential over a period of years. Talk of a trip to Chicago for Determine is out, so far as I am concerned." Molter says he expects to rest his pair of bright stars after the Hollywood Park meet, but by way of preparing them for next winter at Santa Anita.
