 Looking Back

This month in mid-atlantic thoroughbred history! For Looking Back archives click here.

A portion of New York Herald Tribune sports section was reprinted, courtesy of the editors, after Alfred Vanderbilt won the Babylon Handicap at Aqueduct with Newsweekly, giving the owner his first New York stakes win in six years. It was another “brilliant and witty column”  by the legendary “Red” Smith, who noted that Vanderbilt “bought a case of champagne which was delivered to the press box with a card reading: ‘Compliments of Newsweekly.’ Correspondents for daily newspapers consumed it unblushingly.”

  • Calumet Farm’s undefeated Bewitch remained on the list of 151 2-year-old fillies still eligible for the $25,000 Selima Stakes to be run at Laurel. The daughter of Bull Lea had five stakes on her record of seven straight triumphs. Other owners keeping their fillies eligible were William Woodward, master of Belair Stud, who offered the trophy; Walter P. Chrysler; and C.V. Whitney.
