Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta July M, THI UTHMIMI HWAID 7 Quite a contrast from dusty, dry infield Rodeo sees muddy close By GARRY ALLISON Herald 8UH Writer The 78th edition of the Whoop- Up Days rodeo drew to a ssggy conclusion Saturd a y night as the long-needed rain turned the once dusty infield into slippery, muddy mess. The rain started in the midst of the barrel racing and con- tinued through tba final sec. tions of the saddle bronc and buH riding as well as the steer wrestling. Saturday's performance saw champions named in all the events as well as the choosing of an all around and hard luck cowboy. Dale "tapper" Trpttier, four time Canadian bareback bronc riding champion, strengthened his lead ta this year's title race as he won the championship Last day victory Summer in Rome, ridden by Herbie Ollive romps across the finish line ahead of Gallant Lou (8) with Mary McGhie in the saddle. The victory was the only one of the six-day Whoop-Up Days Race Meet for the four-year old colt owned by T. A. Pratt of Slettler. Whoop-Up Race Meet sees wagered Crow's Mile closes in style Nine-year-old Crow's M3e knocked two-fifths of a second off the track record at Whoop- Up Downs Saturday in win- ning the featured race as the 1973 meet came to close. Under jockey Howard Boggs, Crow's Mile covered the sev- en furlongs in 1-5 to break the record set last fall by Speedy Crow's Mile, owned and teamed by Tom Rycroft of Tee- pee Creek, Alta., defeated three former feature-race win- ners in setting the record. Cumloops, which set the ear- ly pace, Hope You Hurry and Cardinals first, hitters sparkle By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS That thing about the leader at fiie all-star break? Forget it. The whole National League East Division is one big mess of teams to beat, and no two teams know it better than the highflying st. Louis Cardinals and nosediving Chicago Cubs. New York Mete ere dead last, but just 7% games out of first. The Cards, who started the season as though they'd spend it ra the basement, have won seven of their last 10 games. And the Cubs, who a few weeks ago seemed to have the flag wrapped up, have dropped nine of their last 10. St. .Louis took possession of first place Sunday with a three- run rally in the eighth inning for a 54 victory over the West Division leader, Los Angeles Dodgers, while the Cubs fell victim to a three-run rally in the 13th inning that gave San Francisco Giants a 4-1 triumph. In the rest of the National League Sunday, Pittsburgh Pi- rates swept a doubleheader from San Diego Padres. 3-1 and 13-7, Phildelphia Phillies took two from Atlanta Braves. 6-5, and 5-1. Cincinnati Reds blanked Montreal Expos 6-0 and the Mete downed Houston As- tros 3-2. The Cards ran up an 8-5 score over Los Angeles Saturday while the Cubs were dropping a 3-1 game to the Giants. Else- where, Philadelphia over- powered Atlanta 8-4 despite the 700th career home run by Braves' slugger Hank Aaron, New York trimmed Houston 5-3, Cincinnati stopped Montreal 6-4 and the San Diego-Pittsburgh game was rained out With OK teams taking a break far Tuesday night's all- star game at Kansas City, the schedule doesn't resume until Thursday. City, site of Tuesday's e. had its eboard out of whack during the weekend, so a trio of Ameri- can League all-stars took dras- tic action to bring attention to themselves Sunday. Otis belted a two-out three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth Inning, rallying Kansas City Royals to a vic- tory over Milwaukee Brewers. Jackson slugged two homers in Oakland A's 5-2 triumph over Cleveland Indians. Robinson drove in five runs with a homer and two singles in Baltimore Orioles 8-2 victory over California Angels. Elsewhere, Mmoesota Twins battered Boston Red Sox 10-7, Rangers edged Detroit Tigers 4-3 and New York Yan- kees and Chicago White Sox split a pair of games, Chicago taking the first 4-2 and New York the second In Saturday's action, Oakland beat Cleveland 5-2, Boston edged. Minnesota 3-2, Texas nipped Detroit 4-3, Kansas City downed Milwaukee 5-i, Balti- more defeated California 5-3, and the Chicago-New York game was rained out. The teams are idle until Thursday with the exception of the all-star game at Kansas City. HIT 'A GOOD PITCH' "I got a good pitch and I hit said Otis. "It was a high fastball. It wasn't a strike." But there's more to Otis's in- creased home run production. A look at the Kansas City lineup reveals that John Mayberry, who also has 20 homers, bats fourth, one spot behind Otis. "They want to get Amos out so they pitch to said manager Jack McKeon. "They don't want to pitch to May- berry." The only American Leaguer with more homers than Otis and Mayberry is Jackson. Jackson tot out on a chance for a three-day vacation be- cause be has 23 homers and 81 RBT. "I could we tin rest, but I want to play in the game." said Jackson, whose two liouuws and four RBI provided Ken Hota- man with bis ISth victory. For most of tins season, Balti- more's Robinson has been a walking advertisement for pla- toon baseball. But the no-hit part of the famous food-field no-hit-oombination may no longer apply to Robinson. STAMPEDE WRESTLING EXHIBITION PAVILION TONIGHT! P.M.

QUII here and took home Trottier marked a 73 Satur- day night on Sun Up, putting him into the lead, one point ahead of former Australian Doug Flannigan and another ex- Canadian champion, Jim Clif- ford. The pair both had marks of 72. Hard riding Bob Hartel of Stratbmore was alone in fourth with a 68. The highest marked ride of the rodeo was tuned in by bull rider Hank Abbie on tbe open- ing night's show. Hank, oi Bumsey, Alberta, had a great 80 point ride on a Kesler bull called Twirley and easily won the championship worth Reigning Canadian bull riding king, John Dodds of Moring- side, was second with a 73. Medicine Hat's Pat Page clung to the back of bis bull for a n while young Kelvin Fox of Cardston earned a 67 in fourth place. Bart Brower, -a red-headed bronc rider from Chase, B.C., pocketed in the saddle bronc riding as his 73 point ride on Hard Twist proved to be the top one in his event. A pair of bronc riders, Steve Loney of Great Falls and John Gratton of Edmonton, shared second and third -with identical 70 point rides. Present world and Canadian saddle bronc king, Mel Hyland of Surrey, B.C. was alone in fourth with a 69. The all around title went to Canadian and world renowned cowboy, Kenny McLean. Kenny could only place eighth in the bronc riding and seventh in tbe dogging but the be earn- ed was more than any other cowboy entered in both a -rid- ing and timed event. The calf roping, while it lack- ed any super-fast times, prov- ed to be a fairly close race for the top four spots. J. W. (Jim) Campbell of Delacour, Alberta tied for the championship Saturday night when be matched the Friday run Gerald Reber turned in. Joth men recorded times of 11.5 seconds and pocketed 1823. Bob Busk of Gainsborough, Sask. was close to the leaders with 11.9 while Ted Brantner of Rantbam was fourth with 12.9, licked up in Saturday morn- ng's slack. The steer wrestlers never did manage to put things together and only four doggers finished with times under 10 seconds. Unfortunately the top two times were run off hi the Sat- urday morning slack and the people who 'took in the three performance show missed them.

Newell Bros, took the final heat of the Whoop-Up Days meet, outdistancing the Jack Curzon and Ray McCulough teams. BEHIND THE CHUTES The chuekwagons and chariots took far too long to run off each night... Bill West's char- iot was the best of the meet... Jim Marsh, woo traded off with Arnold Haraga in the steer wrestling and ended up dogging in the mud and missed his steer, was named the hard luck cowboy... Jim also miss- ed his calf.. Saturday's final performance was much better than Friday's lack lustre per- formance 20 steer wrest- lers, 28 calf ropers and 16 buH riders were run off in the slack Saturday morning... only eight of the 30 steer wrestlers who performed in front of the grand- stand crowds were able to re- cord a time Shawn Davis and Bobby Steiner, both world ranked cowboys who were ad. vertised to compete in the ro- deo, failed to appear Most of Saturday night's mige crowd stayed on through the rain if the portable bleachers were put back in the infield the testants and their families would have some place to sit other than along the fences in front of the chutes.
