IRON LIEGE: KUDOS AND '58
Kudos to your fine magazine. Whatever honors Iron Liege, Hartack, Jones, et al., richly deserve, your selection of the Derby winner two years in advance was the highlight of the 1957 Derby.
Prospects for the remainder of the season are exciting. You can't count out Bold Ruler, or overlook the fast-improving Gallant Man and Round Table. Gen. Duke and Barbizon are definitely the class horses.
Are you retiring with your accolades or can we count on getting the '58 winner?
?Retire? Not on your fetlock. When the time comes, our neck will be farther out than Iron Liege's nose.—ED.
IRON LIEGE: OLD ACQUAINTANCE
Iron Liege may have appeared in your "dummy" issue wet behind the ears, but it certainly proves the editors were as dry as could be in their selection of the 1957 Kentucky Derby winner—back in 1954. How many of your "knew him when" staff had him backed up with a $2 bet on his nose?
Stuttgart, West Germany

IRON LIEGE: FROM THE OWNER'S MOUTH

IRON LIEGE: EXTRASENSORY CLOVER
Congratulations to you and your staff!
I'm in clover today and know the Calumet champ is too. Do you use a crystal ball?
