Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta JO 1HE UIHBRIDGC HERALD Saturday, Decomhci 1J, 19X0 Jmjge reverses decision. Dancer's Image reinstated Fuller waited over two years for money LONG BATTLE WINS DERBY Peter Fuller owner of Dancer's Image, points to a win- ner's circle pholo during a press conference Friday in Boston, after a Kentucky Circuil judge's, decision that his colt should be declared the svinner of the 1963 Kentucky Derby, Fuller said, "it is wonderful to win after all this time and after spending a fabulous am- ount of money in legal costs when you know you were right all along." Fuller will re- ceive the Derby purse of with accru ed interest. Leads by one stroke Blocker passes Sanders FREEPORT, Grand Bahama (AP) Chris Blocker, a big, slow-taking, hard-hitting Texan, had one laconic comment after taking the second round lead in the Bahamas Islands] open golf tournament. "I got it going pretty good and made some putts" Blocker said Friday after matching the Taber exhibition hockey cancelled There will be no more West- ern Canada Hockey League ex- hibition action in Taber. Announcement was made to- day that due to dwindling at- tendance and a lack of interest among Taber and district fans, the remaining five games of the original 12-game schedule have been cancelled. Season ticket holders will have their money refunded for the final five games. The first game in Taber's new sports complex between Flln Flon Bombers and Cal- gary Centennials in late Sep- tember attracted nearly fans. Since then, however, interest has lagged considerably with only 100 fans on hand last Sat- urday for a game between Re- gina and the Centennials. Swift Current and Calgary were scheduled to meet Mori- day night. In making the cancellation announcement, officials said it has become a losing proposi- tion and with an obvious lack of interest, the decision was made to call off the remaining five games.

Blocker's six-under-par effort lifted him to a one stroke ad- vantage over wisecracking Doug Sanders, a non-winner since 1967. Sanders, who set the course record Thursday, slipped to a 70 and commented: "It's amazing how much more tired you can get just hitting that ball four times more than you did the day before." Lurking just off the pace was the formidable figure of Arnold Palmer, the game's ail-time leading money winner who still is seeking his first individual title of the year. PALMER HAS 69 Palmer had a 69 and was alone in third at 137. Handy Wolf was at 138 and was followed by a trio at former Masters' champion Gay Brewer, Bob Erickson and John Jacobs. Lee Trevino, attempting to defend his spot as the No. 1 money winner, had a 70 for 143, well back. PGA champion Dave Stock- Ion, a winner this sea- son, failed to make the cut 1'or tlie final two rounds, shooting a pair of 77s for 154. It took a score of MS lo make it. Four Canadians also failed to make the cut. WUE flomenuik of Winnipeg had a and just missed. Others were Ken Ful- ton, Montreal, 77 for 145; Bob Kern, Toronto, 74 for 155, and Gary Ptchford, Toronto, 76 for 153. Palmer had five birdies, four of them on putts under four feet, missed one from three feet, one from eight and three times inside of 12, He made the turn in 33, but took a six on the 12th when lie hit his tee shot un- playable. I "That 33 fas just about as bad as I could have done from j where I hit he said. "If I'd I made some putts I could have j shot anything. But I am not dis- couraged. I still want to win j and still think T can win." FRANKFORT, Ky. 1068, Peter Fuller's Dancer's Image sped lo an apparent 114- length victory in Ihe Kentucky Derby. But Fuller, a Boston business- man, had to wait more than two years before his horse, which was disqualified because of the presence of an illegal medica- tion in his urinalysis, was awarded first-place money. Dancer's Image was awarded (he prize Friday in a ruling here "by Franklin Circuit Court Judge Henry Meigs, who held there was insufficient evidence to deny Fuller's colt the win- ner's purse. "I'm awfully said Fuller. "As a mailer of fact, I'm thrilled. It means the full recovery of the purse and inter- est. It means the Kentucky Derby Cup, and it means that my horse is tlie undisputed win- ner of the Derby and shares th e glory with nobody but himself." However, Meigs' ruling may be the first step in what could be a long progression of court decisions. COMMISSION TO MEET The Kentucky racing commis- sion, which Upheld Churchill Downs stewards and decreed Jan. 6, 1969 that the urinalysis showed the presence of phenyl- butazone, will meet Wednesda y afternoon at its offices in Lex- ington, Ky., to determine whether to appeal tlie Franklin Circuit Court ruling. Meigs ruled that tests on which the commission chemist, Kenneth Smith, based his find- ing were "inadequate and con- tradictory." Tlie judge said the purre, which now amounts to because of interest, should be distributed lo the original orde r of Image, Mrs. Gene Markey's Forward Pass, Franeie's Hat and T. V. Com- mercial. Meigs also stated E'uller should recover the costs in- curred in his effort to receive the winner's Fuller says amount to "We'll get a little money said Fuller, "but it ain't the money it's the principle. "I thought we would win the case all along but knowledgea- ble people who supposedly knew said the odds were greatly against our winning it. GOOD RESULTS "I feel very strongly that a great deal of good has come out of the Fuller continued. "I know that there have been at least nine changes in the Kentucky racing laws directly attributable to the Dancer's Image case. There's no question that it's better to test the horses than it is not to test all of the horses. Security should be what security is supposed to be Mrs. Markey, owner of Calu- met Farm at Lexington, was unavailable for comment. The commission had awarded the first-place purse, of to Forward Pass after Dancer's Image was disqualified. A spokesman at Calumet Farm said, "Mrs. Markey is re- covering from a broken shoul- der sustained in a fall and Mrs. Markey is recuperating from an operation. "I don't think they want to talk about it. Anyway, they're in New York." Jockey Bobby Ussery, who rode Dancer's Image in the 94th Run for the Roses, said from Tropical Park in Florida that he wasn't surprised with the rul- ing. "Naturally, I'm he said. "My guess is that I'll he gelling i t (his money) nay day now." Both Ussery and trainer Lou Cavalaris Jr. would get 10 per cent of the purse. JUDGE COMMENTS In his ruling Moigs said, "It is undeniably apparent from the record that misunderstanding, misconception and mischance have attended every unraveling thread of this case since Ken- neth Smith retired to his labora- tory Saturday evening following the 1863 Derby." But the judge absolved every- one administering the racing act of any fraud or misconduct. He said the stewards perhaps had a right to consider Smith's report "absolutely conclusive of the issue" at first because of his qualifications and long experi- ence. "When, however, that report was challenged and the commis- sioners were cast in their quasi- judicial, roles, they became ob- ligated lo lay aside any precon- ception and to determine the matter upon competent evi- dence duly adduced to an adver- sary Meigs con- cluded. Legal entanglements appar- ently have confused the public about payoffs hi the disputed Derby. Nearly worth of tickets on Dancer's Image ha- ven't been cashed. However, the mutual payoffs haven't been changed since the official sign went up May 4, 1908. At Toronto, Cavalaris fined and suspended in 1968, said Fri- day the vindication by the courts was "a very nice Christ- mas makes me feel very good." It meant about plus interest. "Peter Fuller certainly stuck lo his said Cavalaris. "I owe whatever I get out of this to him. Two-and-a-half years is a long time. It represents a lot of trips to Kentucky. A lot of effort went into this." Rangers regain share of top spot Egers blasts two past Smith STOP SAVE SERVICE 139 13th St. N.

TO 3 P.M. 7 DAYS A WEEK By IAN MacLAINB Canadian Press Staff Writer Jack Egers' blazing shol earned him the nickname Smo- key, but until Friday night he hadn't scorched many National Hockey League goalies. Then the Now York winger blazed two shots by goaltender Gary Smith less than five min- utes apart in the thu-d period and powered the Bangers to a 2-1 victory over California Golden Seals. Egers, born in Sudbury, Ont. and the Central Hockey League's rookie of the year in 1968-69 was CHL scoring cham- pion last year with 42 goals and 48 assists. He gave every indi- cation Fridaj? night he's on the way to complete recovery from a mid-November head injury that kept him out of action for nearly two weeks. In the only other game Friday night, St. Louis Blues nipped Pittsburgh Penguins 3-2 with all tlie scoring packed into about five minutes of tiie second pe- riod at St. Louis. Tonight, Pittsburgh returns home against Minnesota North Stars, Los Angeles Kings are at Montreal, Toronto Maple Leafs entertain the West Division- leading Chicago Black Hawks, Boston Bruins visit Philadelphia Flyers, Buffalo Sabres are in Detroit against the Red Wings and California moves up the coast against Vancouver Can- ucks. LEAFS VISIT SABRES The five scheduled games Sunday have Toronto at Buffalo, Los Angeles in New York, De- troit in Boston, Minnesota at Chicago and St. Louis moving over the Philadelphia. Egers, 21, an 'amateur draft choice of the Rangers in 1966, had an auspicious debut in the big leagues last year, scoring three goals in six scheduled games, then adding three more in the Rangers' playoff loss to Boston Bruins. His bullet-like drives that eluded Boston's Gerry Cheevers prompted the goaltender to pre- dict: "That guy can score 50 goals with a shot like that." But fame was fleeting for the sis-foot-one, 175-pramder. and his output Friday night doubled his production for the season. The victory moved the Rangers into a first-place tie in the NHL's East division with the Bruins. At St. Louis, tlie Penguins opened and closed the scoring outburst midway into the game, but the hometown Blues were quick to respond with three of their own, Tim Ecclestone's sixth of tlie year being the win- ner while giving St. Louis a 3-1 lead. SUSPEND WALTON Toronto Maple Leals, mean- while, placed centre Mike Wal- ton on the suspended list for failing to show up at a Friday workout. Walton, who had not been with the Leafs since Dec. 2, was said to be under medical treat- ment. However, general mana- ger Jim Gregory in announcing the suspension said Walton had been declared medically fit lo rejoin the club. Gregory said Walton had been given clearance Lo return by both tlie Leafs' physician, Dr. Hugh Smythe, and the player's own doctor "who said there was no reason why Walton could not play." Walton's lawyer, Alan Eagle- son, said he was shocked by tlie suspension and charged Dr. Smythe with a breach of faith. He said further discussion of Walton's case had been post- poned until early next week at the urging of Dr. Smythe, brother of Maple Leaf president Stafford Smythe. Walton's friends have said the player is depressed, emotionally and mentally upset. They say tlie pressure, building for some time, reached a climax after Toronto's 7-0 win over Los An- geles Dec. 2. Several persons dose to Wal- ton say one doctor has advised him to abandon Iwckey entirely, but if he continues to play then it should be with a team other than Toronto. PLANS APPEAL Eagleson said Friday he would appeal the suspension to NHL president Clarence Camp- bell. He said any suggestion that Walton's own doctor ap- proved tlie player's return to the team "is wrong and will come out in the appeal with Mr. Campbell." He said that at a meeting Monday of himself, Walton, Gregory and Dr. Smythe, the doctor had suggested that "we adjourn for a week to 10 days in deference to what he suggested was Mike's unsettled condi- tion." Walton had scored three goals and 10 assists in 23 games with SUSPENDED Alike Wal- (on, 25-year-old centre from Kirkland Lake, Out., was pended by Toronto M p e Leals of tlie National Hockey League for refusing to report for practise Friday.

Bruce Quick and C h u c Haughton slapped in the othe two Canucks markers. For the Totems, Theo DeGroot Michael McLean and Liveo Pa van managed singletons in i losing cause. Tlie Maple Leafs came ui with three third period goals t stop the Jets 5-4 in Bantam A action.

He had brooded on several occasions for riding the bench and said three weeks ago he expected to be traded. It's not the first time Walton .has clashed with Leaf execu- tives. He was suspended in (he 1968-69 season by then-general manager and coach, Punch Im- lach, but was re-instated a week later after meeting with Imlach. Last season he was suspended for three games and fined by the league after shoving referee Neil Smith during a game in Oakland. ST. LOUIS 3 PITTSBURGH J First Period No scoring.
