Six-Day Meet Joins With Rodeo., Chuckwagons Thoroughbreds Highlight Exhibition The mollo, although not wide- ly publicized, of the Lethbndge and District Exhibition Board, has long been "we plan lo have a bigger and better show each and every year." Lethbridge's exhibition people have a long winning streak and after a quick chat Friday with manager Andy Andrews they plan to extend their good for- tunes with an outstanding 1970 show. Four days of chucfcwagon races and three days of profes- sional rodeo would seem to be enough to satisfy anyone's ex- hibition appetite. But the offi- cials of (lie Letlibridge Exhibi- tion have gone one better. For the first time in the his- tory of the Lelhbridgc Exhibi- tion and Eodeo thoroughbred racing will be staged each day with a full stale of races on the daily card. Commencing Monday after- noon, July 20 at two o'clock and running through the Saturday, eight races will be run off. Andrews was more than ex- cited, about the upcoming race meet and feels it could be one of the main attractions of the six day show. A race meet Isn't new lo Lethbndge and district but this year's exhibition meet will bring to Lethbrldge a full slate of new horses, jockeys and trainers. Lethbridge officials have join- ed forces with Montana and will bring the horses to Letlibridge direct from Shelby when they, finish a meet there. According to Andrews horses will be coining from Montana, Washington, Idaho, N e v a da, California and the Dakota's. Plans are for belter than 300 horses to take part and accom- modations have been made for them. New stables and a new jockey's quarters are just two of the preparations the locals have made with regards to the meet. Much of Andrews' enthusiasm stems' from the fact that at Great Falls, where the same horses rah recently, the pari- muluel handle was up 30 per cent due, a great deal, to the quality of the horses. While the races are expected to hold the attention in the afternoon, chuckwagon racing and rodeo will share the lime- light in the From Monday tlirough and including Thursday the chuck- wagons will race at Thurs- day evening at eight the rodeo takes over for tliree nights. Time for the rodeo P'riday and Saturday is seven o'clock. With the race meet and the Whoop Up Days celebrations just a week away The Leth- bridge Herald, as a service lo its readers lo familiarize them with some of the horses that will be running here, commenc- ing Monday and carrying on through next week the results of the races from Helena and Shelby will be published daily.
