An instant later, the Argentine-bred Tuqui II also broke his left front leg and went down as a third horse, Yvetot, crashed into him. Both Autobiography and Tuqui had to be destroyed. Belmonte was taken to Arcadia Methodist Hospital for x-rays to determine his injuries. Alvaro Pineda, aboard Tuqui, and Frank Oivares, riding Yvetot, were unhurt. Yvetot was walked back to his stable. Long shot Queen's Hustler, ahead of those involved in the accidents, went on to win the IV2 mile test in 2 minutes, 27 1-5 seconds, bettering the track record of 2:28 2-5 set in 1946. This distance, however, seldom is run on the dirt track here and wouldn't have been this time except for recent heavy rains which left the grass track too soft for the competition.

And Clarke could well become the all-time expansion points leader tonight as ,the Flyers visit St. Louis in one of. three scheduled games. The other two contests have New York Islanders playing host to Pittsburgh Penguins, while Boston Bruins are in Vancouver against the Canucks. SECOND CHOICE A second-round draft choice by the Flyers in the 1969 amateur draft, Clarke now is second in the individual scoring race, the highest position attained by a player from an expansion club this late in any season. His 52 assists ties the mark for a player from a post-1967 team, a mark set in 1969-70 by Tom Williams of Minnesota North Stars and equalled by Jude Drouin of the same club in 1970-71. But the all-time record for assists appears out of reach for any player this season. Boston defenceman Bobby Orr holds the record of 102, set in 1970-71, and he is the current leader with 54. � TRIO TIED Orr has 71 points, placing Mm in a three-way tie for 10th place in the current scoring race. Centre Phil Esposito of the Bruins continues to lead all scorers with 90 points, including 37 goals which ties him with Mickey Redmond of Detroit Reel Wings for the lead in that department. Another centre, Stan Mikita of Chicago Black Hawks, out with a foot injury, has slipped to third place with 77 points, only two more than another Philadelphia centre - Rick MacLeish. MacLeish has 36 goals and is tied with right winger Ken Hodge of Boston for the lead in power-play goals-each with 14. The 36 goals scored by MacLeish is a record for any Philadelphia player.

The three have a combined goals-against average of 2.27 compared to the 2.44 average recorded by their nearest rivals-New York Rangers. Philadelphia continues to accumulate, penalty minutes at a record rate. With 17 games left to play, the Flyers have 1,239 minutes, an average of 20.3 per game. The record is held by Vancouver with l,37l minutes ill the 1970-71. season. Sinatra will play HARTFORD (AP) - Frank Sinatra has agreed to play in the Greater Hartford Open golf tournament Labor Day weekend, says Sinatra's friend and tournament sponsor, entertainer Sammy Davis Jr. "I talked Sinatra into coming out of retirement and he's going to play," Davis said Monday at a news conference to promote the $200,000 tournament, now known as the Sammy Davis Jr.-Greater Hartford Open. The tournament's purse will be boosted from the original $135,000 by a $65,000 contribution from the Highway Safety Foundation, a private, nonprofit group working to reduce traffic deaths. Davis, the foundation's entertainment chairman, said he became involved in the tournament as a way to promote traffic safety. "I lost my eyejn a car accident," he said, "and I've tried to commit myself to highway safety." Davis said the event is the first Professional Golf Association tournament to be named after a black.man. Filion is in a slump Atkinson looks good as ever NEW YORK (CP) - In his prime, Ted Atkinson was known as The Slasher when he booted home winners-before he switched from mutuels to mu-tiiate. Now 57, Atkinson has a little less hair and a few more creases in his face, but otherwise he hasn't changed much from the days when he was the top jockey in the New York area. Back trouble forced him to quit in 1959, after riding 3,795 winners on racetracks across tho continent. ,Born in Toronto, he left for the United States when he was three. He was the first jockey to win $1 million in pm-se money and took the U.S. riding championship in 1944 and 1946. Dapper and glib, Atkinson now keeps busy investing in the stock market and serves as chief steward for the Illinois Thoroughbred Racing Association. At 117 pounds, he's only a dozen or so pounds over the weight he held low in the saddle when he led the jockeys for 11 of his 16 years on the New York circuit. Atkinson still retains his tack-room flair for colorful jackets. And he flashes a 2%-karat dia- mond on his finger that is a family heirloom. But his wife says he has mellowed a bit. He still gets a lot of letters from young people wanting to become jockeys, but more of them now are coming from girls. "There's nothing wrong with women being jockeys," he says. "Horses are like people and some of them respond to the soft touch of a woman's hand." Supporters of Herv Filion have not been chasing many bets since tlie champion harness-racing driver from Angers, Que., returned from vacation this month. Filion is in a slump, but he hasn't given up. Nor have his loyal fans. At Yonkers Raceway, the 33-year-old Filion has only nine winners in 72 starts while two other Quebecers continue to head the standing. Lucien Fontaine of Pointe aux Trembles is running away with the winter championship, winning 49 of 228 starts. Norm Dau-plaise of Drummondville is second with 37 winners in 205 starts, Fontaine excels with catch (substitute) drives. Dauplaise has had his own horses ready for the winter meeting. New pact Quarterback Ron Lancaster grins Monday at a new� conference in Regina at which it was announced he had agreed to a new two-year contract with Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Western Football Conference.
