The rubber-necked steers had the advantage last night with no less than 12 cowboys failing to pick up any time on their animals.

The battle lor equality con- tinued at Whoop-Up Downs Thursday afternoon as day number four of the Whoop-Up 3ays race meet went by the wards. The six-day race meet ends Saturday with a nine-race card set for a post time rather than the regular 2 p.m. start. It was an even split Thurs- day as (lie gals won four races; equal to the amount of victor- ies for their male counterparts. For the first time in the his- tory of thoroughbred racing in Lethbridge female jockeys earned first place money in four races, as Barbara Suitor chalked up tiiree and newcom- er Cindy Moore of Spokane rode one. Suitor had to share the vic- tory spotlight with leading jcc- key Delbert Rycroft as the young rider also chalked up three wins during the course of the afternoon. The bettors were out in full force, some strong, and wagered It was by far the biggest day of Suitor's career, as she rode both ends of the daily double as well as the featured seventh race. In the seventh race she brought Beat The Bull home a whisker ahead of Rycroft's mount, Sundance Chief. A photo showed Suitor the winner by a nose. Dexter Boy, third in the race, was also involved in the picture as he just missed edg ing Rycroft. With the win in the seventh race Suitor won the Fort Mac- lecd Auction Market purse of ?700 for her father Wendell Eresman of Arrowood, who also trained the winner. Suitor's other wins came aboard Feeling Giddy in the first race and Meo Class in the second. The daily double of the two was worth to 17 ticket holders. Thursday's dou- ble was somewhat short of the record pay on Wednesday when one ticket holder cashed in on Rycroft's wins were aboard Lloyd's Image, who combined with Twilight Mood in the third I for a quiiiella. He also brought Miss Warlcu home in front of Nerva in the fifth for a exactor and Bet Late in the eighth, combined with An- other Indian, paying a quinclla of TRACK Moore won the fourth race in an out- standing start to finish romp aboard Lenny Delbert Ry- croft was dumped from his first mount Thursday, High; Tenor, truti came back as strong as ever after catching his breath Max Gibb, of Lethbridge, had his horse, Sun- dance Chief In the seventh race, claimed by the original owner The smile on the Ex- hibition board officials' face! are getting wider and wider as the pari-mutuel figures continue to show an increase over last year.
