    The Powder Puff Derby...a feature race held July 1 at Assiniboia Downs race track, Winnipeg Canada, with women competing as jockeys.

    Fifty-five hundred fans watch as Mrs. Eileen Blake rides her horse, Present Day, first past the post. Her husband, the horse's owner, collects the trophy. Mrs. Blake's prize: a blue-fox stole, presented by Mrs. E.F. Willis, wife of Manitoba's Lieutenant-Governor.
