May 8, 1961: I was rooting hard for old John  Longden on Saturday. You knew it was his last long ride around Churchill Downs. John has won races under all kinds of conditions, including three at Jamaica one day when there was a guy somewhere in the crowd who had threatened to kill him with a high-power rifle. But you knew John and Four-and-Twenty couldn't make it.
