Sport: Dollar Derby

Neck & neck down the stretch last week, battling to be the year's top money-winning racing-stable owner, came two beauty specialists: Cosmetician Elizabeth Arden and Movieman Louis B. Mayer. Arden's Star Pilot won the Belmont Futurity and $52,940. Mayer's Busher won the Hollywood Derby and $40,470 (to become the alltime tenth best moneywinner*). The dollar derby between the stables stood: Mayer $452,605, Arden $444,855.

* Top ten: Whirlaway, $561,161; Seabiscuit, $437,730; Sun Beau, $376,744; Alsab, $350,015; Equipoise, $338,610; Challedon, $334,660; Phar Lap, $332,350; Gallant Fox, $328,165; Shut Out, $317,507; Busher, $316,590.
