July 03, 1961
What do you do at the race track after your bet is down? At New York's Aqueduct the answer is easy. You look at the new 35-foot-long mural by Artist Peb (Pierre E. Bellocq) and bet your friends they can't identify the 80-odd turf enthusiasts caricatured in it. In a fair book, a correctly identified Leonard Jerome, a founder of U.S. racing, should pay about 90 to 1.
