ATTENTION VACATION MOTORISTS Don't Start Your Vacation Trip Without A RADIATOPx FLUSH he record he set at the 1969 By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer The curtain rang down on the Whoop-Up Days race meet Saturday afternoon and all were in full agreement; t h e show was worthy of a return engagement. Thoroughbred racing was held for the first time this this year in conjunction with the regular exhibition. Local officials had second thoughts about how successful it may be but as it came to a close Sat- urday all their worries and misgivings were over. In the six-day meet, capped off with a pari-mutuel handle Saturday, southern Al- berta bettors poured through the turnstiles, an av- erage of better than daily. While the success of the six- day venture gained most of the spotlight it was jockey perry Kipling who was the out- standing individual. In six days of riding, Hie tal- ented young jockey chalked up 18 wins, including too on Sat- urday, to best Ron Leonard for top honors as jockey of the week. Leonard came up with 11 wins. A track record fell Saturday to complete a week that had a little bit of everything a suc- cessful race meet must have. Kelsey Dancer, ridden by Lee Hanson in the second race, barely let the people get set- tled in their seats as he cross- ed the finish line in :34.2 sec- onds. His time set a new mark for three furlongs as it better- ed the old mark of :35.3 set by Hadason in the fall race meet Sept. 1967. Kelsey Dancer, which pan on the nose, combiner with Banquet Knight in the finish assured him of the team Mc- jaren ride for the rest of the 970 season. It was his first 'he did a very good job pulling out ot my slipstream we were going down the straight." L o t h a r Motschenbacher of Beverly Hills, Calif.' was third n a McLaren 8B; Bob Brown of New York Oty fourth in a Mc- and Dave Causey of ?armel, Ind., fifth in a Lola T163. Roger McCaig of Calgary was he only one of six Canadians to 'inish. He brought his McLaren 8C home in eighth place. George Eaton of Toronto, driving a BRM retired on the 25th lap when a wheel bearing caught fire. Motschenbacher now is in iird place in the standings with 27 points, Brown fourth with 23' and Gethin is tied with Jackie Oliver of England for fifth. Both have 15 points but Oliver wrecked his car at St. Jovite, Que., in the second race this year. Eaton and Richard Alt- wood of England, who did not race here, are tied in sixth place with 12 points each. HANDS STILL HEALING Hulme's victory was made even more satisfying by the fact he did it despite hands that had not fully recovered from burns suffered while practising for the Indianapolis 500. "For once I could go hard ah1 the he said. He was surprised Motschen- bacher did not challenge the team McLaren lead. "I thought he would give us a much harder run than lie did; that Lothar might catch us." Hulme's car ran a 430-cubic- inch Chevrolet aluminum engine and Gethin 465-inch. Hulme elected to go with the smaller engine for reliability. "As the load came off, the car got quicker. The 430-inch engine will do 200 miles easily. It was absolutely perfect all the way. I didn't take any risks." He was asked whether he had discussed any strategy with Gethin and was planning any for the next race, the Buckeye in Ohio Aug. 23. WH1.1 first for a Daily Double which delighted 56 ticket hold ers. Barbara Suitor rode Ban quet Knight. Kelsey Dancer is owned anhth race. Saturday's feature race, the seventh, was .won by Ryslo with Jewell in tack. Ryslo, owned by Garry Marks of Lomond and trained by Stan Marks, stormed past Typical Blue in the stretch and paid for a win ticket. Place money was while a show ticket was worth In winning the seventh race Ryslo won for Ms owner the Whoop-Up Downs Claiming Handicap. AT THE TRACK Bar- bara Suitor finished the six day meet with tour wins She was in the money a num- ber of other times Jockey Ron Leonard threw a tantrum, firing his whip to the ground' and his saddle, after he claim- ed foul against Jockey Gerry Kipling in the sixth race His antics didn't help any as Kipling was found clear of any charges More horses will be needed next year Some of live horses ran too often this time around Whoop-Up Downs will be quiet until Sep- tember when the Fall Race meet takes over for nine days.
