Shows starts Thursday evening Top rodeo names will be here By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Writer The Lethbridge Whoop-Up Days rodeo will feature many of the top names in both from Canada and the United States. Many of the current leaders in the 1974 race for world titles have paid their entry fees as have numerous past and present Canadian and world champions. There are 38 saddle bronc riders entered including Mel the 1972 world and Canadian champion. Hyland has also entered the calf rop- ing and the bareback bronc riding. Tom Mr. Color in Canadian entered not only the saddle bronc event but the steer wrestling and calf roping as well. Bobby formerly of Texas and now of Granum and ranked in the top 10 in the world saddle bronc has entered as has. reigning Canadian saddle bronc king Jerry Sinclair of Lloydminster. Brian making a run at the world bull riding championship and winner of the Calgary Stampede bull riding title has entered in both the bull riding and the saddle bronc events. Among the other big names entered in the saddle event are National Finals veterans Ivan Daines of Innisfail and Bobby Berger of Oklahoma. Reg Kesler's bucking among the best in the will give these top hands a real test. Two of the most promising rides in the saddle event seem to be the contests between Brian Claypool on The Spaniard and young Jim Kelts' effort astride the 1971 world champion bucking Rodeo News. Judging the rodeo events will be two of Canada's top both on the in- jury Dale Rose and Doug Flanagan. Rose was expected to enter the bull riding after his first go round win at Calgary but he was injured after his final ride in Calgary and had to draw out of the Lethbridge show.

Of the wagered a great portion of it was riding on the talents of Bourne. Bourne made his presence felt in the first race as he guided Buster Kid to victory. Combined with Papparatus the which apparently has replaced the daily was worth to 123 ticket holders. Dunham got in Bourne's way as he went for three straight as she won the second race abroad Sharon H. Bourne was right back in the winner's .circle in the third and fourth races. He won the third with Ice Alley as he just edged Little Beck at the finish line. The two paid a quinella. The fourth race saw Bourne bring Compelling's Last home ahead of the pack. Majestic with Howard Boggs and Kum ridden by Mark paid in the third quin- ella of the day. The exactor was worth as Brilliant Request finished just ahead of Mister Bountiful.
