Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE UTHMIDGK HIRALD Monday, July 16, 1979 Fm just thinking Balcony Girl, the horse, has a problem. She would just as soon have Elizabeth Kramps, of Holland, give her a brush down as run for the money. But Balcony Girl, of the Krause Wheatland Stables, will be in the run for the money sometime during this week as the Whoop-Up Days Race Meet is staged. The meet got under way this after- noon at Finishes second in Manitoba Derby" Royal Chocolate started late WINNIPEG (CP) Zaca Spirit, a gamble, charged from the starting gate to set the pace, then held off a late challenge from Queen's Plate winner Royal Chocolate to win the 25th running of the Manitoba Derby at As- aniboia Downs Sunday. The dark brown colt earned for Bo-Teak Farms of Toronto with a winning time of 2-5 in Canada's second- richest pace for native three- year-olds. Royal Chocolate, who finished three lengths back in second place, netted owner Staf- ford of Toronto and show finisher Impressive Lady, the only filly in the 11-horse fieW, won for J. M. Brun- ton of Toronto. Other horses in order of fin- ish: Wing Span, winner last week of the Derby prep, the St. James-Assiniboia Handi- cap; Tara Road; Albert the Consort; Fabiusand; Singing Spirit; Merging Fire; Royal lad; and Queen's Splendour. Richard Grubb, the 24-year- old jockey who guided Zaca Spirit to the win, said later: "I expected to be on the lead with him. WENT FULL OUT "He liked the track today and has good speed. When you have speed on a three-quarter mile track, you have to take advan- tage of it" For trainer C. F. Chapman, the win was especially sweet. 'Tve had a few and winners but this is the -first winner." Zaca Spirit paid 15.20 to win, 5.60 to place and 3.30 to show. Royal Chocolate paid 4.60 and 2.50 while Impressive Lady paid 2 JO to show. A crowd of wagered for the day. Jockey Ted Colangdo, who rode Royal Chocolate, said he, didnt' think Zaca Spirit would l win the race and was more con- cerned about Impressive Lady. He said he expected Zaca Spirit to take the early lead but thought Royal Chocolate should have finished out front. But Royal Chocolate stuck in the middle of the pack until the clubhouse turn and failed to move until too late. Beman triumphs appears healthy ROBINSON, 111. (AP) Deane Beman, noted for his brain rather than his brawn in six years.on the PGA tourna- ment tour, says in winning the Shrine-Robinson golf open he has completed his con- valescence. Beman, who underwent a delicate arm operation earlier in the year, said that he now feels as if he is playing solid golf again and "that feeling well is really more rewarding to me than winning a tourna- ment." The former amateur cham- pion, who left a successful in- surance business in Washington, D.C., to join the pros at the age of 29. flashed a closing 67 Sun- day to take the first prize by one stroke. Beman totaled 271, 13-under par on the Crawford County Country Club course. Bunky Henry, who went broke after winning only at the Hawaiian Open earlier this entire earnings for the took a month off from the tour to find a spon- sor, shared second place with Bob Dickson. Dickson, winner of the San Diego Open this spring, and Henry pocketed each for second place. Both made a final charge, closing with five-under-par 66s to card tournament totals of 272. Henry included an eagle three on the 12th and a birdie two on the 18th in his finish. Dickson birdied four out of fve holes, starting with the llth, in his bid. Chuck Courtney earned fourth place, shooting 69 for 273, Larry Hinson with 67 was fifth at 274, and George Archer, 68, and rookie Pro Andy North, 70, shared sixth at 275. Veteran Dick Rhyan of In- dianapolis, who was in the 54- hole lead with Beman and Courtney at 204, wound up with 77. "He couldn't handle this race said Colangelo. "I just couldn't get him going until the end of the backstretch. "He started charging in the home stretch and may have come up the winner if we had another furlong to go, but in the early going he seemed to have trouble digging into the hard track." Grubb said it was Impressive Lady, not Royal Chocolate, that had him worried during the race. "Coming off the back side I could hear the filly coming up. Then once I shook her off and she wasn't getting to me, I 'we'll make it from here.' "I had to pick him up and get into it the last part of the race, but other than that, I had no problems." Tara Road, co-entered by Stafford Farms with Royal Chocolate, was outrun early. He moved up after a half but fin- ished evenly in the middle of the pack.
