Irish Derby and Mother Goose Winners

Yesterday, the Irish Derby was run at the usual distance of one and one-half miles.  Jack Hobbs, who finished behind Golden Horn in the Epsom Derby, liked the turf at the Curragh better than Epsom.  Jack Hobbs won the race by 5 lengths, with Storm the Stars another 5 1/2 lengths back, and Giovanni Canaletto winning third by a half-length.
   The 1 and 1/16 mile Mother Goose Stakes at Belmont Park, yesterday, the chestnut filly named Include Betty won by a margin of 3 and 1/4 lengths.  Wonder Gal nosed out Chide for second.
