were essentially different from thoea of
either Grannaa or Smith; tha greateet dif
ference being, perhaps, that while they
were alwaya looking for "long ahota,"
Dwyer often took the short end.
It . haa been published repeatedly that he
onae bet fOO.000 against $10,000 on Joe Cou

figure at $40,000 to $8,000. The real figure

and his older brother, PhillpJ., two pros
perous butcher of Brooklyn, began their
turf career. They had for yeara fre
quented the race tracks In the neighbor
hood ot New York; that year they went
to tha Saratoga meeting. The younger
brother waa greatly taken with the black
cold Rhadamanthua, son of Imported
Leamington, and they bought the animal.
Rhadamanthua started under tha Dwyer
color on August 17, winning a purse ot
$600, and, of course, the "Racing Twin,;
th Dwyer afterward came to be
called, won much more than that la tha
betting ring. By the end of the aeaaon
they owned three horaa and at Its close
their profit were $17,006.
For aixteen yeara their partnerehip con
tinued. During the latter of those year
they were dominant. But they did not
agree In policy. Michael fought the book,
