to the front at the start of the Delaware Valley while Hubcap was in close attendance right from the break Talent Show was third under a patient ride by Lester while Plion broke almost last and was in the ruck ruckIve Ive Got Rhythm continued to maintain his lead to the turn and around it with Hubcap still pushing him while Plion finally was taken to the outside and started to make up ground Talent Show hugged his rail position and was just biding his time until they hit the stretch stretchAs As they came around the turn for home Ive Got Rhythm started to waver and Lester had his choice of trying to go either in or out of the leader He decided on the former course and as the choice didnt come in got room on the rail Slipping through he quickly took command and at the eighth pole was a length in front of the favorite favoritePlion Plion in the meantime had come around horses on the extreme outside and was clos ¬ ing under Culmones lefthanded and loop ¬ ing style of whipping But he was not able to make up enough territory on the leaders and had to be content with third money while Talent Show went on to defeat Ive Got Rhythm RhythmHoward Howard Grant who rode Ive Got Rhythm said My horse is still a little green He tried to change stride and at ¬ tempted to go out a few times If he hadnt have been green the winner would not have been able to go through on the rail and I feel sure that he would have outgamed I him himCulmone Culmone who handled Plion remarked Pliori didnt break too well and I think the dirt bothered him a little When he got to the outside he was able to run his best but he had toto much to make up upTalent Talent Show earned 118 pounds under the conditions of the stake the same as Ive Got Rhythm while Plion had 124 124The The Betzy Ross Trial which was a good workout for Idun had but three horses in it as Fall Wind and Percussion were with ¬ drawn Erb hit Idun a few times coming out of the gate to keep her up with Del ¬ nita and once the champ was there had her under a tight hold Going into the far turn Erb loosed a bit of his rein and Idun went to the front quickly Midway of the run Erb looked over his right shoulder saw nothing in any form of a menace de ¬ velop and made the final bend bendAs As he came into the stretch Erb took another look this time over his left shoul ¬ der since his ostensible opposition was still on the curve then making one brisk shake of his wiiip alongside of Iduns head let her roll to the finish on her own ownIdun Idun paid 220 but actually was seven cents to the dollar in the betting calcula ¬ tions The minimum return in the state is 10 cents to the dollar Citation returned the same amount when he won the Jers3y Stakts hi 1948 1948After After the race trainer Sherrill Ward said I cant make any decision as to whether I will keep Idun here or what her next engagement will be until I get back to the barn and see how she comes out of the race The filly is eligible to the Betsy Ross Stakes for which this was a trial next Saturday SaturdayMrs Mrs Bay was succint Naturally I am very thrilled She is just tops
