Before an opening day crowd of some southern Alberta bettors Kipling the show with foui' wins in the eight-race card. It was, to say the least, a his- tory making performance as horse racing, of the thorough- bred variety, has never been staged with the exhibition and stampede in Lcthbridge. It was a first for Lethbridge and a day Kipling will long re- member. Kipling got off on the right foot in the first race and miss- ed riding in the money hi only the third race. His biggest win of the day came hi tlie featured seventh race, the High Society Handi- mp as ho rode Croft Lake to victory in record time. Owncc and trained by Matt Lytle o Santa Rita, Montana, Croft Lake covered the seven furlongs in one minute 25 and two fifths seconds and knocked two fifths of a second' from the old record set in 1966 by Hare Photo.

Evan- shen caught three passes for 121 Wood threw 39 times and completed 14 for 238 yards. Flanker Billy Cooper caught our for 75 yards. The rain-soaked field was a u n n e r's nightmare. Ottawa managed only 79 yards on the ground while Alouettes were teld to 30. Ottawa fullback Jim Mankins arried 11 times for 30 yards, lach quarterback had two in- erceptions. MacMillan missed all three of is field goal attempts while Guindon was good on two of i four tries. I Alouettes were penalized 20 I Croft Lake paid to win, 4.30 to place and a show ticket was worth 3.50. Kipling guided Magna Ed to victory in the first and com- bined with Flume in the second for a daily double, 81 bet- tors held a ticket on the dou- ble combination. Irish Colonel, with Elijah Bourne in the saddle and Bern- gale, ridden by Norm Jewell, paid 28 bettors for tho exactor. Kipling shared in the quinel- la spotlight as he rode Timid Tammy to victory in the eighth race. Timid Tammy was follow- ed by Two Cents, ridden by Bob Lewis and (lie combination paid to 121 ticket holders It was Quiet Ride in the fourth that gave Kipling his oth- er sin. All told, besides his four firsts, Kipling earned a third finish in two other races.
