SUCCESS OF OWEN TUDOR
(Rec. 9.30 a.m.) LONDON. June 18. The second wartime English Derby, which was run at Newmarket instead of at Epsom, attracted its usual worldwide interest, but the crowd, owing to transport difficulties, did not exceed
50,000 as compared with the peacetime half a million. Included in the twenty starters was Fah*y Prince, whose owner, Mr. F. T. Williams, is a prisoner
of war in Germany.
The following was the result:—
ENGLISH DERBY, £2000 and sweepstakes; for three-year-olds; 1£ miles. Mrs. Macdonald-Buchanan's br c
Owen Tudor, by Hyperion— . Mary Tudor, 9.0 H.H. Maharani Saheb of Kolhapur's br c Morogoro, by Felicitation — Moti Begum. 9.0 Sir William Jury's b c Firoze Din, by Fairway—La Voulzie, 9.0 ...
Twenty starters. Won by a length and a half, with third horse two lengths away. Winner trained by F. Darling, Beckhampton, Wilts.—U.P.A.
The success of Owen Tudor gave his trainer, Fred Darling, who is known as "The Derby Specialist," his seventh win in the classic since the Great War, his first win coming in 1922. Hyperion, sire of Owen Tudor, himself won the Derby in 1933, but Mary Tudor, dam of Owen Tudor, only raced once as a three-year-old, when she ran unplaced in the Cambridgeshire Stakes at Newmarket. Darling also trained the runner-up in this year's contest.— "Binocular."
