Reports From Foreign Racing Centers Italy Oaks Proves Easy For Beatrice Adams AdamsBy By DESMOND McGOWAN McGOWANOur Our Rome Correspondent CorrespondentROME ROME Leading from start to finish the Razza DormelloOlgiatas threeyearold bay filly Beatrice Adams won the 8500 Italian Oaks in the rec ¬ ord time of 216 The previous best time for this 11 furlong race was the 218 set up by the same stables Theodorica in 1955 Beatrice Adams won by a length from her sta blemate Carboncina with the Razza del Sol dos Dadea who started favorite three lengths farther back in third place and six lengths ahead of the fourth horse Mantova Stables Rebeghina in a field of six The race needs little descrip ¬ tion for Beatrice Adams dominated from the start and as they came into the stretch she was three lengths clear of Dadea with Carboncina and Rebeghina best placed of the others Any hopes that Beatrice Adams would come back to her field soon were dis ¬ pelled and Parravani went for his whip on Dadea fully two lengths from home The big Soldo filly ran on gamely but could produce no extra burst of speed and she was passed in the last 150 yards by Car ¬ boncina who was running on strongly to finish within a length of Beatrice Adams who was eased near the wire wireIt It was a great compliment to twoyear old form that the first three in the juve ¬ nile ratings Pier Capponi Beatrice Adams and Peveron have won the Emanuele Filiberto Oaks and 2000 Guineas respectively and it is unfortu ¬ nate that neither Pier Capponi nor Bea ¬ trice Adams will run in the Derby The Oaks winner is a bad traveler and she is so nervous that she has to have a sheep in her stall to keep her company By the Epsom Derby winner and disappoint ¬ ing sire Pearl Diver she comes from the same female line that has given us Botti ¬ celli Barbara Sirani and Braque her dam Balestrina Torbido being a half sister to the famous broodmare Buonamica BuonamicaDadea Dadea must be given another chance and we hope there is no truth in the rumors after the race that she would forego her engagement in the Derby Undoubtedly she was beaten by a topclass filly and she might have finished closer to the winner had she not tried to match her for speed in the initial stages Naturally it all depends on how she eats up after the Oaks and if Federico Regoli decides to send her to Rome we think she might trouble some of the colts coltsThis This is our last chance of writing about the Derby to be run on May 15 Stable plans and final acceptors are not known at the time of writing but from what we have been able to glean the field will number about a dozen and probable run ¬ ners and riders are the Razza Dormello Olgiatas Tiepolo E Camici and Vla minck C Castaldi the Razza del Soldos Dadea and Filogep the Razza Ticinos Sedan G Bonvini and Oviedo P Maz zoni Matova Stables Peveron S Paci fici Bleu Stables Kabul O Fancera the Jlazza di Rozzanos Zandonai I Gab brielli the Razza di Polis Algaiola G Bugattella the Razza Ciampinos Cianipiiio no boy and Avv Franco Forms Mulinello B Agriforni Doubt ¬ ful acceptors are Saturno II Arnaud Pecos and Macon but such is the attrac ¬ tion to have a runner in the Derby that the record field of 14 might be surpassed surpassedPicking Picking the winner is not an easy task and selection is narrowed down to Tiepolo Peveron Sedan Filogeo and Dadea The unbeaten Tiepolo has impressed everyone who has seen him this year and he has won over the distance While there is no line of form to connect him with the other four the actual fact that he is preferred to Malhoa speaks volumes and we expect to see him start favorite Sedan was the unlucky horse in the Emanuele Filiberto and many thought he would haye been close to Pier Capponi had he not been shut in behind Filogeo and Minia in the straight ¬ away Coming from a heavy betting stable the market should be a good indication as to how strongly he is fancied and we will be very much surprised if this game little allquality colt is not concerned with the finish finishSupremely Supremely confident are Gino Manto vani and Saverio Pacific that the 2000 Guineas winner Peveron will not be Oi J ffil 1 t JJl J Hj 6JJ A I beaten ana there is ample justification for this belief jn the easy fashion in which he won the first of the colts classics A colt with great scope Peveron was not fully wound up on Guineas day and will be considerably more fit on May 15 The rainy spell seems to have finished but should the going be heavy on the day Peverons chances would be greatly en ¬ hanced nd we wouldnt look anywhere else for the winner On any sort of going however he is the horse they all have to fear fearWe We have not altogether lost faith in Filogeo but his running in the Emanuele Filiberto indicated lie either lacks courage or he is a onepacer His habit of turning his head when under pressure is not one we like but we dont condemn a horse on one bad performance and we are prepared to see him run a good race if the pace is strong enough to give his undoubted stay ¬ ing qualities a chance to pay off We have already dealt with Dadea in describing her race in theOaks and there should be no great danger from the 1000 Guineas winner Algaiola who was tried out over 11 furlongs during the week in the Premio Minerva but could only scramble home to win by a nose from the moderate Tema who was receiv ¬ ing five pounds In summing up we think the probable winner might be the classically bred Tiepolo and that he would have most to fear from Peveron and Sedan
