In August 1901, a match race was held at Ocean Springs between two of the fastest catboats on the Mississippi coast.  The Davis Brothers, owned by Clement Bellande was pitted against the Royal Flush, owned by Orey Young (1868-1938).  Local merchants had put up a cash prize of $700 for the race, and the afternoon that the event was held was declared a general holiday.  The Royal Flush won by two minutes and one second.  It avenged an earlier loss to the Davis Brothers at the 1901 Biloxi Regatta in the Third Class Fleet (16-19 foot boats).  Orey Young once said that, "the Royal Flush, if loaded with all the prize money she has won, would certainly sink".
