Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Monday, February 25, 1974 Secretariat must prove fertility PARIS, Ky. (AP) Secretariat, syndicated for more than any race horse in history, has until Aug. 1 to prove he can get 60 per cent or more of the mares bred to bu- rn foal or the syndicate folds, it was disclosed Sunday. Seth Hancock, president of Claibome Farm and syndicate manager, said that revised agreements were mailed this weekend to the 32 syndicate members and contained that provision. The members already have paid as a down pavment and another will be due April 1, Hancock said. If Secretariat gets 60 per cent or more mares in foal in his first year at stud, the syndicate stands, with each shareholder liable for a total of If Secretariat fails, the syndicate folds, but the agreement provides that any breeder whose mare is declared in foal must pay an additional stud fee. Hancock said the first two mares bred to Secretariat this year already have been de- clared in foal, but the third came up barren. The million Secretariat syndication came under question when a panel of veterinarians said they could not certify his fertility, as outlined in the syndicate agreement. Leeds United edged by Stoke City ending 29-game winning streak LONDON (AP) Stoke City toppled Leeds United 3-2 Saturday and ended Leeds' run of 29 games in the English League First Division without defeat. !t was the second time Leeds had lost in five days. They were tumbled out of the English FA Cup Tuesday by Second Division's Bristol City. Leeds crumbled against Stoke after taking a 2-0 lead early in the game. Leeds had already set an English League record for an unbeaten run from the start of the season. But they needed to survive one more game to equal Burnley's record of 30 straight league games without defeat. Geoff Hurst, former England World Cup star, set up the chance for Denis Smith to score minutes from the end. And Celtic closed on its ninth successive Scottish League title as Dixie Deans scored four goals in a 4-2 rout of Hibernian. Leeds were still eight points ahead of Liverpool, their nearest rivals, at the top of the standings and were siill NOW is the time to look at your asphalt require- ments for 1974.

(AP) Lee Tevino's little fuss with a national television network almost overshadowed Leonard Thompson's victory in the Jackie Gleason Inverrary golf tournament. Trevino, tied for the lead until he three-putted for bogeys on the last two holes Sunday, angrily charged television commentator Ray Scott with asking him to hold up a putt so the cameras could show it live on TV. Scott and Frank Chirkinian, producer-director for the CBS television crew that .covered the rich event, said it was a misunderstood joke. Thompson, meanwhile, was rejoicing in his first profes- sional victory following a final-round 68 and a 278 total, 10 under par. He donated of his purse to the Boys Clubs of America. Thompson of Luberton, N.C., beat Hale Irwin by one stroke. Irwin also had a closing 68, four under par, and a 279 total. A half-dozen players either led or shared the lead in the last round and Jack Nicklaus once came within two strokes of the top spot before Thompson clinched it with long; crucial putts for'pars on the last two holes. Julius Boros, 53, finished third with a final 67 and 280 to- tal. Ben Kern of London, Ont., fired a final-round 73 for a 295 total and earned Wilf Homenuik of Winnipeg, who had a 79 Sunday and 302, finished out of the money. Lanny Wadkins, Trevino, Nicklaus and Andy North were grouped at 281. Wadkins and Nicklaus each had seven- under-par 65s in the last round, North shot a 68 and Trevino, the defending champion, took a 69. Johnny Miller, winner of three titles and more than this season, managed a 68 but was well back at 288. He said he was taking-three weeks away from the tour to seek relief from a respiratory problem that has bothered him since last fall. runaway favorites to win the championship title. Leeds have 48 points from 30 games. Liverpool drew 0-0 at Newcastle and have 40 points from 29 games. Derby beat Norwich 4-2 at Norwich. The two teams are tied for third with 34 points from 30 games. A crowd of saw Leeds power to a 2-0 lead after 18 minutes and nobody would have given much for Stoke's chances at that point. First Billy Bremner, Leeds captain, scored with a controversial free-kick. Stoke claimed he took the kick before the referee had signalled. Then Allan Clarke sent a fine shot into the Stoke net after a move involving Peter Lorimer and Johnny Giles. A foul by Norman Hunter on John Mahoney led to the start of Stoke's recovery. Mike Pejic's free-kick was deflected .into the net. A tense battle developed with free-kicks on both sides. In the 33rd minute John Ritchie forced his way through the Leeds defence and pulled the ball back for Alan Hudson, the star Chelsea sold for to score his first goal for Stoke. At half-time the score was 2-2. Leeds came under heavy assault in the second half. They defended desperately and held out until the 73rd minute when Smith slid home the winning goal. "No doubt they were tired after after that tense Cup game last said Stoke manager Tony Waddington. "We expected that, and we went at them and threw everything into attack. "I'm sorry that magnificent unbeaten run by Leeds had to end. But this was a great day for us." Kevin Keegan set up a series of dangerous attacks and Liverpool dominated the game but could not finish their moves. Newcastle unimpressive. were Shutouts evade Gilles Gratton By IAN MacLAINE The CANADIAN PRESS Gilles Gratton hasn't had much prior experience, but he firmly believes that shutouts for him are going to be hard to come by. "There's no difference in an easy shutout or a t ugh shut- the 21-year-old Toronto Toros goaltender said Sunday night. "You still have to work hard." Gratton was giving a post- game review of his first ever shutout as a pro following the Toros' 2-0 win over New Eng- land to climb into a first place tie with the Whalers in the World Hockey Association's Eastern Division.

He shared a shutout with veteran Les Bin- kley earlier this season, but the closest Gratton can recall doing a solo effort was when Los Angeles scored on him with 10 minutes to go in the third period of a game last year. Rick Sentes' two third period goals broke up the scoreless game before a sellout house of at Toronto's Varsity Arena. "I missed a couple of real good chances in the second pe- riod, but it felt real good to get that first the young Toros left winger said. He credited his linemates with doing all the work. Guy Trottier and Wayne Carleton handled the corner work on both goals. Whalers will move BOSTON (AP) New England Whalers of the World Hockey Association announced today the club will move its franchise from Boston to Hartford, Conn., April 2. "We regret leaving the greater Boston Howard Baldwin, ciub president, said at a news conference. "However, quite candidly, the stockholders of the Whalers have lost considerable sums of money over the last two years."

"The most singular reason for the move is that we will be hi a brand new major league facility as the prime Baldwin said.
