Kow, it billy does. I had all tlie information on a three-year old named Aven- lie Lady. Her story would make the script writers of World of Disney (is il still call- ending, this five-year-old may never be back racing but it will surely be back. The story on Avenue Lady first, was brought to my atten- tion by exhibition manager Andy Andrews who, in turn, in- troduced ii'.o to Charles Murray of Picture Butte.

She became the main ait-ac- tion in Picture Butte until she was two years H would have been' at this time she would have run her first race. Murray, however, felt she wasn't strong enough so he tended to her another year, much to the delight, according to Murray, of Picture Eutte people.

Afler all, that's where Avenue Lady was horn. For Canadian Aixtic, her racing days are ended. But less than a week ago H was thought even she was needed. Canadian Arctic, owned by Dave Astley of Calgary and trained by Hobert (Pinky) MacDonald of Taber, ran her last race Thanksgiving Day as she broke her right hind leg in sbi places.

Crucial contest Sunday as Stamps meet Argos By THE CANADIAN PRESS Three Canadian Football League games are scheduled this wekcend in the two of them count for something and the third will just be ex- ercise. noughriders are Stamps are 4-C.

Both club's have three games re- Thc crucial one is Toronto al majning with two Montreal and two Toronto losses Calgary, with last year's Grey Cup winners and runners-up fighting to keep their 1972 play- off hopes alive in an inter- locking game Sunday. The other game which means something has a fired-up Sas- katchewan squad charging into Winnipeg Sunday for a shot, at the current co-holder of first place in the Western Confer- ence. And then there's tonight's game in Vancouver. Edmonton against British Columbia. A for the Lions means Van- couver fans mav hold off criti- cizing coach Eagle Keys quite KO much while a win for the first-place Eskimos will be jusl what Ray Jauch undoubtedly expects. Stampeder coach Jim Duncan looks forward to a make-or break weekend. "We're not out of it ant they're still he said of the Toronto-Calgary match "We're both in (here, hut we're hanging on by our toenails." Those Calgary toenails anc playoff hopes could be ciippet (his weekend by either anothe Stampeder loss or a Saskatchc wan win. The third-plac iving the A Is the final playoff jcrth. In Winnipeg, the Bombers will be trying to pull out of a wo-game losing streak. Sas- katchewan, fresh from a 24-14 vin over B.C. last Sunday, will >e looking for an upset. The Winnipeg defence, which couldn't contain Edmonton's game in a 24-15 Thanksgiving Day less, should strengthened with the return of linehackcr Mickey Doyle, who missed the 'last four games with knee trouble. Phil Win- nick, who filled in for Doyle, will shift to the outside, replac- ing Mike Kuhn, who broke his leg in the Edmonton game. In Vancouver tonight, Eskimo coach Jauch gets a chance to make it three for three this season against the down-and- out Leos. Keys and Co. get a chance to duplicate their giant- killing win against Winnipeg a couple weeks ago. Ex-Lion Tom Wilkinson con- tinues to spearhead Edmonton's attack. Jauch said Friday thai Non-import Mike lakes over for Highbaugh lonight. Highbaugh is now in! Edmonton where Jauch says he will sign him for a five-day trial.
