Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 8, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX ,THE LETHBRIDGB IJAILY HERALD WEDNESDAY, JULY 8, 1914 Used for First Time at Fair Races Yesterday-Bet- ter Than the Books-Three Running Races and One Harness Event The pari-mutuel betting 15S5.00 on a single S6.00 ticket in the was introduced to Lethbridge patrons yesterday afternoon tor the first timo. Tie usual opening day attendance obtained, and the betting talent was limited, so whether the mutuels received a fair test or not is a question. The mutuels do not give occasion for the same amount of excitement the books and to one used to-playing the latter they pro- bably seem a trifle slow; but there is one thing certain, the man who takes a flier on a race is more satisfied after he has tried and lost on the mut- uels than he is inclined to be after having lost under the book-making system: he knows that the operators are not getting all the money, and he is keeping it in local circulation. There was probably not a bettor yesterday who didn't leave the track satisfied that he- had got a better run lor his money off the pari-mnt- uels'than he had ever-received oil the old system of wagering. The pari-niutuel system of betting is solving the race-track problem and placing the game on a higher plane than eiex. it was, and is bringing horse-racing back. to many of the tracks where it once flourished, but killed through the knavery that too often accompanies the old-time methods of betting. The pari-mut- -uel is the most approved system of betting, and that is being conceded everywhere by everyon who knows from experience. There were only two machines in operation yesterday, and machines, respectively, and they both were for first place money. The op- erators had two other machines for and but these _were not brought into acquisition because of ,the limited number of horses in the races, and the dearth of money., in sight for betting. The pari-mutuel system, in a nut- Ehell, means that all the money forms one. pool, and is divided equally am- ong the tickets representing the win- ning horse in the race, 10 per cent, be- ing deducted bv the which is the- only remuneration they receive. What They Paid In the second race a well-known Lethbridge-ite held the only tic- ket put up- on Amore, and he pulled down something like S85.00. on his 55.00 investment- That was the fin- est haul of the afternoon. La Mona in one heat of the first race paid on 'every 52.00 ticket, and 512.50 on every ticket. Amora, as previously stated, paid first heat of the second and in the second heat 59.00 on each ticket, and on each 15.00 ticket 51B.OO. Ethel Sampson paid on every 52.00 ticket in the third race. There were uo tickets bought. In the fourth race Brouibi should have paid its backers SS.OO for each ticket, and ?22.0Q tor'every. 55.00 ticket Took Six Heats There was but one harness event on: the cards, tie 3.15 pace or 2.10 trot. La, Mona captured first money, beating Ed. Karnach to it in six times out -It was a tight race, with Glen. C. making a bid for' first honors.' La Mona took the first two heats, and was chased -hard by Gien (X, who land- ed 'second, and then beat La Mona in the third La Mona, suffering a mishap just after the start, getting crowded by. Ed.. Karnach's sulky and breaking things up for himself mom- entarily, and also EH. Karnach. With this advantage. Glen C. travelled in the lead and came under the "wire first, but he had to go some. Ed. Kar- nach. -was getting stronger, as the race grew old, and copped the nest two heats in clean fashion, tleing up witij :La Mona', and forcing a sixth heat, and two-horse battle for the money. La Mona got the advantage at the start, and acquired a slight lead and held it until the back stretch was reached in the .last half, when Ed. Karnach drew up and stood good to challenge the leader, but big En. broke just as he was making good, and bis Waterloo came to pcss there and lien. La Mona got first money, Ed. Kamach second and Glen C. third. Hal Mac was distanced in the first heat and Lady Goo Goo in the second. TheiRunners 'in the half-mile uony, there was only one horse'in the race. That was Amora. Madge Horton had a look-in in the first heat, but it was only be- cause Amora let her. in the second heat Amora got away badly and was jostled at the first turn, but he got out of the pocket he "was in in the back stretch, gathered speed and was out in front on the home- stretch and won by a length in a hard drive, with the others close on. Madge Horton and Fry split second and third money. Six horses started. j Five-Eighths Dash Ethel Sampson was the pick of the bnnch in the five-eighths run, and showed her class by coming up from behind and winning in a gallop. Le- due was second, two lengths behind, and was trailed by Lady S. Tango "was Fourth.. Kii a hatjiuK I Tuscan went down in a heap at tho last turn, when tha horse was going picking up ground.
