Jacobs, who died Feb. 13, re- ceived all the credit Saturday when Personality, a colt he adored, won the Preak- ness at Pimlico by a neck over fast-closing My Dad George. "He did achieve son John Jacobs said, showing tears. "He bred him. In fact, he bred Personality's sire and dam, we raced both of his grand dams, and we even bred one of this colt's great-grand- dams. So this line goes back four generations." Ilirsch saddled Personality only once, when lie finished nin'h in his only 1969 start. But from the beginnig he was high on the son of Hail to Reason and predicted Personality would be the best in the Jacobs' stable. Personality's dam, Affection- IS THIS ALL MINE? Cliff Stroh swept'oll the honors at the First Chance golf tourna- ment held on weekend at Henderson Lake. Ai well os winning tourney honors he alia won the) hone race Sunday afternoon. Stroh Sweeps Honors In First Chance Event By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer No one knows for sure who told Cliff Stroh that the first chance was his last chance. A lot of golfers would like to know who it was. The 1970 First Chance golf tournament wrapped up at Hen- derson Lake Golf Club Monday afternoon and the prize list read like a Cliff Stroh appreciation day. The only tiling Stroh didn't win was the set of golf shoes the women's section of the Lake Course raffled off. "My caddy had a lot to do with said Stroh after it was all over. Caddy or no caddy, when it was all over it was all Stroh. The popular shotmaker from the Lake Course had things his own way over the three days of golf action. Slroh didn't let on it was his weekend in the qualifying round Saturday as he fired a 79 but it was following this round that things began to happen. His opening round of 79 gave Stroh a berth in the horse race and that marked the beginning of the end. Consistency was the word as Stroh fought off challenge after challenge and carted home hon- ors in the 54-hole medal play tournament. After Ms qualifying round Stroh came up with another round of 79 and then stormed home with a 74 Monday to win the CHEC Radio trophy. Stroh had 'earlier won the horse race Sunday afternoon. If the champion had trouble with any one golfer it had to be Fred Kalicum. Also of Hender- son Lake. No matter where Stroh toned it was Kalicum giving chase. Kalicum played Hie role of bridesmaid as he was second to Stroh in the horse race as well as the championship flight. Stroh's 153 total was seven better than Kalicum's while Eay Rhoades, an Edmonton shotmak- NORSRIDGE MARINE SERVICENTRE 1252 3rd Avenue North Ithbridge, Alberta Phone 327-6960 Now Is the time to bring In your lawnmowers, boats and for Irtuu A ipring tune up or repairs.

He lias won five of 11 starts this year, and the won Saturday raised his career earn- ings to Personality's jockey Eddie Belmonte, in his first Preakness start, took Che lead from Silent Screen in the stretch of the 1 3- 16 mile race and then barely held off the late bid of My Dad had finished five lengths behind winner Dust Commander in the Derby. Dust Commander finished ninth and Sunday trainer Don Combs reported a filling in the colt's left front ankle, the same injury that occurred after the Kentucky Derby. He said Dust Commander wil not run in the Belmont June 6, the third jewel in U.S. thorough- bred racing's Triple Crown. Dust Commander will be watched for a few days and 'we'll talk to our own Combs said. "They'll probably pin fire him for an indication of an osselet on the left front leg down around the Combs said. An osselet is a bony growth, a formation caused by calcium deposits. My Dad George probably will start in the 1% mile Bemont. Jockey John Eotz said he thought that distance was "defi- nitely out of the question" for Silent Screen, who faded in the late stages of both the Derby and the Preakness. Jacobs hasn't made up his mind yet about the Belmont for Personality and stablemate High Echelon, who finished fourth in the Preakness. So far, his plans call only for the Jersey Derby on May 30, noting the Belmont is too far ahead. 'Horses make your plans for Jacobs said. 'They make the decisions." Hungary Unhappy With Choice VIENNA (AP) A top Hun- garian sports official and publi- cist has fired a massive br'oad- side against the International Olympic Committee over its choice of Montreal as site of the 1976 Summer Games, rejecting Moscow. Sandor Bares, general mana- ger of the Hungarian news agency MTT and vice-president of the European Soccer Associa- tion, charged the IOC was moti- vated by political purposes. Bares said in an article in the Budapest newspaper Magyar Hirlap: "If we study the chances of the two cities from the sports point Of view then even a child would vote for Moscow, since sports life in the Soviet Union cannot be compared with sports in Canada; the fact that never- theless they voted in favor of Montreal, can only result from political reasons. And if the In- ternational Olympic Committee cannot free itself from political prejudices, then it is not suited to manage this supreme event of noble and humane aims." Minor Ball Bruce Olsen was the winning pitcher and had a perfect day at the plate, hitting two home runs and two singles, as the Tigers took a 14-10 Norcrest Farm League victory from the Bobcats. Jim Johnson chipped in with three singles for the winners against losing pitcher Frank Kogler while Barry Bunyan added a home run.
