Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta J2 THE LETHBRIDGE Mpnday, June 4, 1973 Ouch! Arms and feet fly in all directions as Toronto Metros' Bruno Piias (right) comes to an abrupt stop bouncing off Miami Toros player Roberto Aguirre. Toros won the game 1-0 with a goal with three minutes left to play. The game was in the North American Soccer League. But others ivere ivrong before Secretariat predicted to win Triple Crown By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The people who handled the last Triple Crown winner 25 years ago think Secretariat is about to match the feat, but they have expected triples be- were wrong. Jimmy Jones, who trained Ci- tation in 1V48, and Eddie Ar- caro, who rode him, believe Secretariat should have little trouble winning next Saturday's Belmont Stakes to go with his Kentucky Derby and Preakness victories. "The further you go toward the Triple Crown, the weaker the competition Arcaro said. "There's nobody on the hori- zon to beat Jones echoed. Both Arcaro and Jones said there is no way to compare the two horses since so much has happened in racing during the quarter of a century that sepa- rates them. Both the former trainer and jockey predicted a Secretariat victory in the Belmont, but both said they had been fooled be- fore. "I thought that Canonero II was going to win it and I still think he would have if some- thing hadn't happened to him between the Preakness and the Arcaro said. "And I thought Majestic Prince would win too.'' Jones said Tim Tarn would have won tha crown, but he broke a sesamoid bone in the Belmont at the five-sixteenths pole. was a game horse he still finished second.'' Neither Arcaro nor Jones could supply a reason why four with Citation- won the crown in an eight-year span, then none for 25 years. Perhaps, Jones speculated, it is because there are more races today with big purses and all of the top flight horses don't end up in the same races. Jones said more horses presently are pointed for one or two legs of the Triple Crown and don't race in all three. Arcaro disagreed. "I think it's been about the same from the he said by teleohonj from his Miami apartment. But back to Secretariat and the test that stands be- tween the Meadow Stable color- bearer and the crown. "I said right after the Derby that he'd win the Triple Arcaro said. "I was one of those who "had thought he couldn't run a mile and a quar- ter, but after the Derby I de- cided he could run miles if he wanted to." Speaking by phone from Mon- mouth Park in Oceanport, N.J., where he is director of racing, Jonss called Secretariat "by far the best horse this year." "I was rather impressed with him in the Preakness, but now the question is how good the other horses that won't be answered until they race some more." What did the trainer tell Ar- caro on that afternoon in 1948 when he was shooting tor the Belmont and the crown with Ci- tation? "I just said I didn't see how anybody could beat this horse unless be fell Jones said. Evert came close Court owns French open PARIS CAP) Margaret Court of Australia won her fifth French open tennis champion- ship in 12 years Sunday, rally- ing for a 6-7, 7-6. 6-4 victory over 18-year-old Chris Evert of Fort Lauderdale. Fla. The triumph gave Mrs. Court, 30, two victories in her quest for a second Grand Slam. Ear- lier this year, she won the Aus- tralian title, with Wimbledon 3272111 IS THE NUMBER OF THE STUDENT MANPOWER CENTRE WHERE STUDENTS SHOULD REGISTER FOR EMPLOYMENT AND EMPLOYERS CAN HIRE STUDENTS. IT'S EASYI JUST CALL 327 2111 and Forest Hills still to be played. In men's quarter-final action. Adriano Panatta of Italy and Yugoslav KikM Pilic advanced to the semi-finals of the event. Panatta, with a fine display of volleying, beat Tom Okker of the Netherlands 6-3, 5-7. 6-3, 6-4, While Pilic eliminated Panatla's countryman, Paul Bertolucci 6- 3, 6-4. 3-6, 6-4. Panalta and Pilic will meet in one semi-final today, with Tom 1 Gorman of Seattle, Wash, anrl 1 Romanian Hie Nastase, quarter- i final victors Saturday, clashing 'in the other. 1 Miss Evert played brilliantly in winning the first set of her match with Mrs. Court. She I saved two set points and came from a 5-2 deficit to win the tic- breaker. However, Chris later faded as the more expsrienced Aussie turned on the pressure. Dicker, who Friday upset title favorite Stan Smith of Pasa- dena, Calif., led 3-0 in the fourth set but faltered as Pan- atta began to score with his best strokes. Mrs. Court earned for her triumph, which ended a string of 23 straight victories for Miss Evert, who took second prize money of The Aus- tralian previously won the French title in J962. 1864. 1969 and 1970. She won all four ma- jor tournaments for the Grand Slam in 1970. Evert, seeking her first major title, was the sentimental favorite of the crowd of Mrs. Court and Britain's Vir- ginia Wade won the women's doubles title beating Betty Stove of the Netherlands and Fran- coise Durr France 6-2, 6-3. John of Australia and Okker took the men's dou- bles championship. Tongue biter Kemper Open winner Tom Weiskopf of Columbus, Ohio bites his tongue as he watches his putt miss hole on 17th green Sunday. Weiskopf won the tournament with a 17-under partotal. Weiskopf hot, but cautious Canadians look good despite American win EDMONTON (CP) Fears that Canadian drivers would not be competitive in the Canadian challenge auto racing series vanished here Sunday although the race was won by an Ameri- can, Al Lader of Gresham, Ore. Lader drove to an easy vic- tory in the second race of the 1973 series for Formula B cars, finishing 22.3 seconds ahead of Gary Magwood of Toronto, but the remaining entrants from the United States had their hands full. A crash on the first turn of the second lap sent Scott MacK- enzie of Ottawa to hospital with a concussion and undetermined neck injuries. Wink Bancroft of Anaheim, Calif., two rows behind MacK- enzie in heavy traffic, said MacKenzie's Brabham BT 53 turned sideways in the corner and hit a retaining wall with its reai- wheel. He said the car was three feet in the air when it struck the wall. Mackenzie was reported in fair condition in hospital Sun- day night. JUMPS INTO LEAD Lader, who lost the pole posi- tion to veteran Craig Hill of Mississauga, Ont., Saturday during qualifying runs, took the lead immediately after the start Sunday. He retained it throughout the 300-mile event on the 2" 2-mile circuit, crossing the finish line in for an average speed of 97.819 miles an hour. Three of 11 U.S. entries in the field of 31 finished in the top 10. Hill had his troubles at the start and was shunted back to fourth position in the first lap. He said after the race that the two pace laps caused one of Ms spark plugs to foul. The 39-year-old charger came on during the next few laps to take second spot and was 11 seconds behind Lader when me- chanical trouble forced him out on the 29th lap. LOSES LEAD As he watched from Turn Four, the series points lead he gained while placing second to Lader last weekend at Van- couver in the series opener was taken by Magwood, whose March 73-B carried him to a to- tal of 43 points. John Powell of Ottawa finished fourth in a Brabham BT38 and has 32 points, one more than Hill. Americans are not eligible for points. Bill Brack of Toronto finished between Magwood and Powell in third place. Lader said before the race that he might not continue the series because of the high cost. After his win, however, he said he will continue at least until June 17, when the next event is scheduled at Sinair, Que. "If we do well there, we'll probably go on to the next he said. "We just take them one at a time.'' Lader grabbed the lead com- ing off the front straight and drove easily the rest of the way. Hill fought to within two seconds of the leader by the fourth lap but once he and La- der began lapping cars, the American drew farther away. CAGE STAR MARRIED NORTH PROVIDENCE, R.I.

N.C. (AP) Tom Weiskopf, winner of two of j his last three starts and second in the other, is one of the hot- test items on the pro golf tour right now. But he isn't shout- ing: ''Bring on Jack Nicklaus." not going to say 'I can beat Jack Nicklaus'." Weiskopf said after his relatively easy, three-stroke victory Sunday in ths Kemper Open golf tourna- ment. "But I'm not afraid of him. I'm not afraid of anyone. I feel that if I play at my best then I can win at any Weiskopf said. A week ago in Atlanta Nick- laus beat him by two strokes though Weiskopf scored well enough to win any previous At- lanta Classic. And Nicklaus was idle when Weiskopf won the Colonial Na- tional Invitation at Fort Worth a month ago. And he was idle again this week as Weiskopf romped home with a final-round 63 and a 271 total, 19 under par on the Quail Hollow l Country Club course, a record low for the tournament that Weiskopf now has won twice in three years. Lanny Wadkins, the runner- up, didn't get closer than two strokes in the muggy heat for Uie final round and finished A'ith a 69 and 274. Dave Hill. Lou Graham and Leonard Thompson were next at 277 with Cesar Sanudo, Art Wall, Ken Still, Mac McLcndon, Dan Sikes and John Lister of New Zealand bunched at 278. Ben Kern of Toronto had one .of his best-ever rounds on the 1 was worth Lee Trevino and Arnold Palmer finished well back. Tre- vino had a final-round 70 for 280 and Palmer tied for 34th at 284.
