PAGE B8 [ ~pJrit of JEFFERSON and FARMER'S ADVOCATE Wc:~nesday, September 18, 2013 I SPORTS/LEGALS j I By BOB MADISON The time was ripe for heroes. World War II was just a few years in the background. America was feeling good about itself and found things to be proud about in nearly all walks of life. The early 1950s were being shaped to a real extent by television. The new medium gave the growing population the national and world news they wanted as well as like- able entertainers and even weekends full of sports like football, baseball and boxing. Television sets had small screens, usual- ly about 12 inches in scope.Every program was broadcast in black and white. News commentators became famous. Ed Sulli- van, a variety show host, and Milton Berle, a comedian, were as well known as pres- idents Harry Truman and Dwight Eisen- hewer. Boxers Sugar Ray Robinson and Rocky Marciano were wildly popular. And then there was a massive grey race horse that came to the screen with an un- beaten record. He was nearly white in color, making it easy to follow him as he plowed from behind and through the ranks. His name was Native Dancer and he won his nine races as a 2-year-old. Amer- ica's ego and psyche were moved by win- ning, moved by consistent success. Native Dancer Was owned by one of the Native Dancer won 21 of his 22 career starts. country's most affluent businessmen, Al- fred Vanderbilt. His usual jockey was a high school dropout from the Cajun bayous of Louisiana. His everyday groom was easy to find and easy to quote if spice were needed for a story or article. Native Dancer won. And he did it with a engulf-the-field style that saw him drop behind and then TBGREATS.COM He lost in the Kentucky Derby. use his rarely seen 29-foot stride to cascade through the stretch to reach the finish line before any horse. Those little televisions called for the au- dience to huddle close and lean forward to get within four feet of the screen. Na- tive Dancer and jockey Eric Guerin would settle the matter in the same powerful way American settled World War H. Quickly given the nickname "The Grey Ghost," Native Dancer came to the 1953 Kentucky Derby with his unbeaten record still intact. He had been the betting favorite in every race he had been entered. He was favored again in the Kentucky Derby. All across the country, people waiting for a sporting event tuned their televisions to the Kentucky Derby. Whether it be fate, or racing luck or jock- ey Guerin's bad decisions, Native Dancer lost for the only time in his 22 career races. He was bumped once in the nm to the first tuna. During the running of the race, he was bumped again on the backstretch. Twice, Guerin had to "take up" or pull back to keep Native Dancer from clipping heels with another horse.And then the rider forced his way along the tail instead of go- ing to the outside like Native Dancer was accustomed to doing. In mid-stretch, longshot Dark Star had a four-length lead that would be lessened with every giant stride Native Dancer took. At the wire, the grey's late-running effort fell short by a head and Dark Star's fans could collect over $51 for every $2 win- ning ticket they had. After the Kentucky Derby, Native Danc- er's record showed nine wins and a second in his 10 lifetime races. When he was re- tired midway through his four-year-old campaign, his lifetime record would show him with 21 wins and a second in his 22 races. In 1953, the weekly magazine "TV Guide" named Ed Sullivan, Arthur God- frey and Native Dancer as the three biggest television stars of the year. " In 1954,/~me magazine had the big gi~y on its cover. He had become the first thor- oughbred icon of the ever-expanding tele- vision age. While Native Dancer didn't abuse his regular attendees, he once bit off the finger of a stranger he didn't recognize as a friend. Trainer Wdliam Winfrey did his best work with the nearly perfect grey at owner Van- derbilt's Sagamore Farm in Maryland. ' After three wins at age four, plans were in order to send him to France for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. But another foot problem in a rarely interrupted line of in- juries scuttled that idea and Native Dancer was retired. His record as a sire is a star-studded one with 43 of his progeny being slakes win- ners. His grandson, Mr. Prospector, sired many champions himself. So did Raise A Native. Shenanigans was the mother of Ruffian and Kauai King won both the Ken- tucky Derby and Preakness in 1966. Native Dancer had teen a thoroughbred hero in what could be termed ' Fhe Golden Age of Thoroughbred Racing" because of the emergence of television. By BOB MADISON side.

There were two sacks, four hurries and two blocked kicks. The WVIAC vot- ers placed him on the league's first-team when Shepherd had won the championship. In 2011, Hayes recorded 37 tackles, including 16 for lost yardage and six sacks. He blocked two kicks. Following the completion of the 2011 sea- son, Hayes was named to the AII-WVIAC second team. Off the field, he was named to several all-academic teams and carded 3.56 grade point average while majoring in fitness and ex- ercise science. He is a three-year starter and like Franklin has remained healthy and been able to start ev- ery game. Hayes is one of the team's four captains this season. Franklin played at Long Reach (Md.) High and Hayes went to high school at Park View in Ster- ling Park, Va. Few teams try running straight at the Shepherd defense. When they do, the usual efforts involve traps, draws, quarterback op- tions and pitch sweeps. Running inside between the Shepherd ends hasn't been productive dur- ing the regular season for years and years. When the Rams drew nation- al attention by slamming 7th- ranked Shippensburg, 33-0, the Red Raiders were left to rub their heads over the meager 32 rushing yards they had managed. Last week, where Shepherd handled Fairmont, The Fighting Falcons couldn't solve the Shep- herd defensive front, either. One is a four-year starter and the other is a three-year starter. They both have become reliable and have more able to stay away from injuries, building long streaks of consecutiqe starts. Franklin & Hayes. Trusted and productive. WVU FROM PAGE B3 ton College. Not a pleasant thought if you just lost to West Virginia at par- tially fdled Ravens Stadium and just might see the 2013 ACC race from the bottom rung. Again. As for the Mountaineers, the reminders of last year's 5-0 start and then the crash and burn for five straight Big 12 games will be simmering away as the fans drive back to their hotel or return to Morgantown or Summit Point. The 3:30 p.m. game will not be sold out. The ticket prices are unreasonable. The only tickets besides those in the 500 level at the upper rim of the stadium or those in the end zones that cost less than $125 are a few $85 seats near field level on the goal lines. This is not a product worth $125 a seat even if "these schools re- cruit the same areas, these players know each other from high school and this rivalry between boundary states goes back a long way." legals' I RECEIPTS Interest Income TOTAL RECEIPTS BALANCE 6/30/13 BAI~ANCE 7/1/12 RECEIPTS Confiscated Property Contributions from Other Entities Interest Income Miscellaneous Revenue Reimbursements TOTAL RECEIPTS DISBURSEMENTS Alissa Meeks Best Buy Bob Mitchell Bruce's Tow Service Ronnie Kems Charles Town Auto Wash Charles Town Police Department Fresh Cut Flowers Hospice of the Panhandle Martins OTL Tactical Shenandoah Valley Water Shirley Slebodnick Sprint St. Jude Wal-Mart Payments Less Than $50 TOTAL DISBURSEMENTS BALANCE 6/30/13 CITY OF CHARLES BALANCE 7/1/12 RECEIPTS Rents Capital Lease Revenue Interest Income TOTAL RECEIPTS DISBURSEMENTS BB&T Central Elevator Inspection Charles Town Board of Parks & Rec Commercial Insurance Evan Greenfield First Charles Town Group, lnc Harm Electric Harry Weller JC Ehrlich Company Kone, Inc.
