1 minute read

> Bold Lad: a three-length victory in the Mowlee Purse; at Aqueduct. Fully recovered from the painful “splints” (tumorlike growths) on his forelegs that had kept him out of action since last October, Wheatley Stable’s six-time stakes winner sped six furlongs in 1 min., 10 2/5 sec., stamped himself as a strong contender for May’s Kentucky Derby.

> Yale’s Don Schollander, 18: the 200-yd. freestyle in the national A.A.U. men’s swimming championships at New Haven: in an American record time of 1 min. 41.7 sec., to continue his winning ways after collecting four gold medals at the Tokyo Olympics. Another teenager, Greg Buckingham, upset Veteran Roy Saari in the 400-yd. individual medley, but Saari consoled himself with a first in the 1,650-yd. freestyle.

> Oxford: a four-length victory over Cambridge in the 111th Dark Blue-Light Blue crew race down the Thames, stroking the 41-mile course in 18 min. 7 sec. Powered by four sturdy Yanks, all former Yalemen studying at Oxford, the Darks opened up two lengths after the first mile, pulled steadily away for their 49th win.
