Charging fillies and mares head for home in $156,500 Delaware Handicap as 16 to 1 long shot Flower Bowl (fifth from left), makes ready for the stretch drive and victory (see page 42).

A sad tail it was when 12-year-old Robert Ditrapani steered his homemade racer across a stray dog's extremity and the finish line to win the annual Soap Box Derby at Washington, D.C.

Big finish is scored by Driver Billy Haughton (right) as Belle Acton and Bachelor Hanover, whom he also trains, come in one-two in the $71,500 Messenger Stake for pacers at Westbury, N.Y.

Victory grins are exchanged by the Kellys, Jack Jr. (left) and Jack Sr., after younger Kelly won single scull semifinal race during the Olympic Rowing Trials at Syracuse, N.Y. (see page 35).
