Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Towday, July 3, 1973 THI UTKMIDOI MRA19 Royal Chocolate steals limelight No more obscurity for colt TORONTO (CP) Just four days ago, Royal Chocolate was just another horse in the Staf- ford Farms stable at Woodbine racetrack but now the colt could be the favorite for the July 15 Manitoba Derby in Win- nipeg. The sudden change of fortune is due to Boyal Chocolate's vic- tory Saturday in the Queen's Plate at Woodbine where a record crowd of included Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. Even though Royal Chocolate won a division of the Plate Trial Stakes June 23, the crowd gave him little consideration and sent him off, as a 23-1 long- shot in the premier event for Canadian-foaled three-year-olds. Owner Jack Stafford was a little incredulous himself. "I never thought we'd win that race, he said after he'd collected 50 sovereigns from the Queen. "I knew we would win only when we were five lengths ahead with only an eighth to go." At the Choco- late, -with Ted. Colangelo aboard, was 5% lengths up on Sinister Purpose, which finished second, and My Archie Bald, which was third. HANDSOME RETURN Royal Chocolate paid a hand- some and to bettors and to Stafford. It ran as an entry with Good Port, which finished 13th in the 17-horse field. Sinister Purpose paid and white My Archie Bald paid The betting pool was the largest in Plate history, ecl- ipsing record. Total last year's purse was a record couldn't go the Plate's IVi-mile distance. On the other hand, Royal Chocolate, who had won only one other stakes race in his ca- division of the Plate going away after being as far back as 10th. La Prevoyante and Impres- sive. Lady, which finished 10th carried 121 pounds as the only two fillies in the Plate. The boys carried 126 pounds.

Secretariat romps, wins by nine lengths YORK (AP) Secre- tariat was home awaiting his next performance today as his owner took care of his fan mail and his agent worked on a line of merchandise bearing his name and likeness. William Morris Agency, Inc., which handles many show busi- ness personalities, has teen ob- tained to merchandise the Triple Crown winner who won the Arlington In- vitational Saturday at Chicago's Arlington Park. Helen Twsedy, operator of Meadow Stable, said the agency was hired "because we want to havs some control over the quality" of the merchandise. Items which have been ap- proved so far, she said, include a poster, a statuette, a picture book and a medallion.

The effect that Secretariat has had on the public was clearly evident Saturday as a crowd of largest at Ar- lington Park in at last 20 years, cheered his-every move. It began with restrained ap- plause as Secretariat walked from the barn to the paddock and reached a roar as be raced through the stretch for a nine- length victory over My Gallant, with Our Native third and Blue Chip Dan last. "It was a said one fan, but everyone seemed satisfied. Secretariat failed to set a track record but without being pushed he ran tbe 1% miles in only one-fifth of a second off the track mark to win by nine lengths. Collegians form group CALGARY (CP) Represen- tatives from community and technical colleges across Can- ada Saturday formed tbe Cana- dian Colleges Athletic Associa- tion (CCAA) to promote sports at the college level. Don Stouffer, athletic direc- tor at Mount Royal College in Calgary and CCAA president, said the new group will paral- lel the Canadian Intercdlegi- ate Athletic Association, which governs uaivtyaJly sports.

Mrs. Stafford sat in the Turf dub later counting her sover- race is advertised as added plus a purse of 50 guineas, however, guineas are no longer minted. "What are these she asked a reporter. Told they were equivalent to one pound sterling, about each, but worth much more as collectors' items, she said: "Oh, it's nice to know that. Fll save them for my grand- cmTdren." The winning time of two min- utes, eight seconds was the slowest since 1923 when South Shore won Canada's top thor- oughbred race in Tbe track was listed as slow by tbe handicappers because of a rain shortly before post time. The heavy going was supposed to be an advantage to favorite La Prevoyante, but it didn't turn out that way. The filly started well and was challenging for tbe lead round-. Canada's eldest rodeo, watch- ed Medicine Hat cowboy Dale Rose walk off with the all around honors. Rose didn't win an event, but placed second in the bull rid- ing and third in the calf roping, earning more money than any- one eke and grabbing the ti- tle. Rocky Hubley of Fort St. John, B.C. was the bull riding champion as be hung on to his twisting torro for a ride of 73 points. Rose had a 70 point out- ing while Jim Freeman, Red Deer, was third with 69. Doug Mantler took the calf roping honors. The Lethbridge roper put the wraps on his ani- mal in 11.1 seconds beating Bob Wilson of Cardston by six tenths of a second. Rose was third with 12.1. Dale Christensen, a Carsland cowboy nsw to the professional won his second South- ern Alberta riding champion- ship in the bareback division. Date had earlier won the rig- ging event at Vulcan and his 72 point outing gave him the top honors at the Raymond show. Another newcomer, Brent Thompson, a British Columbia hand, was next in line with a 68 while Bob Kartell of Strath- more garnered 67 points. Both the saddle bronc title and the steer wrestling cham- pionship were shared by two jawbcys. Ben Hem of Bindloss and Lloyd Fowlie shared the steer wrestling crown as they both tntmght animals to an abrupt stop in five seconds flat. Ted Ely of Cardston was next in line, tossing his catch in 5.5 seconds. Carseland's Wayne Downey and Granum's Jack Dues split the winners share in the saddle bronc riding. Both boy's spur- red out 69 point rides atop their broncs and pocketed apiece for their troubles John Gratton of Edmonton was third with a ride of 68.
