The stage was set for the featured seventh race and ev- eryone, some one-sixteenth duel of six horses. They got a duel alright, but from just two horses. But what a duel it was. Irving Simpson'has found winning at Whoop-Up a little hard to come by. Things, how- ever, should get easier after Thursday's featured event. Simpson gave a solid account of himself as a rider as he took Hole Card to the front early, led by two lengths as the field of six passed the grand- stand for the second time and then fought off a brilliant chal- lenge by Whirlagale with Gerry Nibblet in the saddle. Hole Card, owned and trained by Jack Boren of Vernal, Utah, covered the distance in one mi- nute, fifty and four-fifth ends, a fraction faster than Whiriagale. In winning the Hi-Way 52! Mae Jones in the second. Nibblet's third triumph of the day came in the fourth race as he guided Crowfoot Joe home ahead of the pack. He closed out the day with a win aboard Miss Rouser in the eighth race. A photo was needed to decide the winner in the eighth race as well and this tune Nibblet was (he winner. Thursday's crowd poured 845 through the pari-mutaal windows. Jockey Yves Baril was in- jured in the fourth race when he fell from Victory Circle after the two year old horse had jumped the infleld fence head- ing into the last turn.

Abbie, a veteran of Nations Finals competition, clung to the back of the twisting, dip- ping bull for eight seconds earning the top ride of the ro- deo thus far. Two other bull tamers, Lee Wackier of Lethhridge and Gary Hunt of Williams Lake B.C. wer-3 well behind Abbie with 64 points apiece. An Aus- tralian cowboy, Fete Dolan was next in line with -a mark of 63. The early leader in the sad d'e bronc riding is a Highwood, Montana cowboy, Cleve Loney Loney got himself in perfec rhythm with a bronc Red Cloud and picked up 70 points for his effort. Second place is split betweei John Gratton of Edmonton an Mel Hyland, 1972 world and Canadian bronc riding king Both men earned 69. points Current leader in the Canadian standings, Jerry Sinclair, was fourth with 66 points.

Two more cowboys, David Cramps am Mark Twogood were tied in fourth and fifth with 60 points. An unexpected highlight oi lite rodeo was the hilarious an- tics of the clowns. Earl Doering, Mickey Bag- nell and Duane Rechart, par- icularly with their Dr. Ben Krazy act, had the 3.000 plus spectators laughing and clap- ling along with the fun. The men in the timed events had nothing but trouble. The best anyone could do in he calf roping was a run of 15.8 turned in by Cochrane's Barry Edge. Dick Aldoff, a jetbbridge roper, was next in me with a slow time of 194.

At 2-years old Canadian whisky is pale, harsh, unmatured and around 12 is darker and beginning to take on a heavy 'woody' taste, In between this time, it becomes golden, mellow, smooth and full-bodied. In our opinion OFC is the prime Canadian whisky. That's why OFC is only 8 years old. The prime time for taste, try it.
