THE RUN FOR THE MONEY

A dozen of the country's top 2-year-olds battle for history's richest turf prize and a handsome chestnut long shot named Prince John is the big surprise

As the field of 12 Thoroughbred 2-year-olds broke from the post in the Garden State last Saturday they had a mile and a sixteenth to go for racing's richest purse: $282,370, with $157,918.50 as the winner's share. The early leaders were the Futurity winner, Nail (post position 1), Polly's Jet (4) and Bold Bazooka (2). Meanwhile a 24-1 shot named Prince John (3) lay fourth as its field swept up the backstretch. At the eighth pole Prince John startled the 45,000 spectators by taking the lead. Fighting off the challenges of Career Boy (8) and Needles (6), Prince John hung on to win by a nose. Triumphant Owner Max Gluck praised Trainer Walter Kelley. Kelley praised Jockey Angel Valenzuela, who turned the usual loser's phrase into the crack of the week: "I had no excuses."
