While Winnipeg and Calgary battle for respectability, the Roughriders will be at home to Edmonton Eskimos in what cculd be a scrap for first place.

However, nothing has damp- ened the interest in the sport and the popularity of thorough- bred racing in southern Alberta has continued to increase. The 1973 Fall Race Meet, one of the mainstays of southern sporting will get under way Ms coming Thursday a t Whoop-Up Downs for a 12-day stay. Meet director Andy Andrews, quietly confident of the biggest year yet in the brief three-year history of the Lethbridge Exhi- bition backed meet, indicates all is ready to go for the event. The only thing lacking is the sound of "They're off and run- ning." While the format Is fee same as in past years, one change has been made in the daily post time. Since taking over the bulk of the work involved in staging a race meet from the Southern Alberta Racing Association three years back, the locals have tried very hard to make things better for the race goers. This time around post time weekdays will be four o'clock. 'It will give the eight-to-five working people a chance to get out for three or four said Andrews. Post time Satur- day's will remain at two o'clock. Eight races will be run off daily with possible expansion to a nine-race card on one or two occasions. The highlight of the meet will be the running of the Marion Williams Memorial Handicap Saturday, Sept. 22, the final day of the meet. The race, with a first prize purse is held each year in honor of the late Mrs. Wil- liams, who along with her hus- band Lee Williams, was instru- mental in bringing racing to Lethbridge in 1981. Andrews is expecting over 400 horses for the meet, many of which will have just wrapped up the Western Canada Racing Association season in Edmon- ton Tuesday, Horses from various parts of Montana, Idaho, North Dakota and points in Rocky Mountain Racing Circuit will join Cana- dian mounts from Alberta, Sas- katchewan and Manitoba. Andrews is optimistic regard- ing a banner year for the locals. Since taking over three years back the turnstiles have been kept busy. In 1971. year one of i the Exhibition's sponsorship, a record was wagered as Race the weatherman gave his full co-operation. Last year the loc- als appeared headed for another record year when foul weather took its toll. Still, bettors spent just over One of the reasons for An- drews' optimism is the fact that racing in Calgary will not inter- fere with local action. There is no fall meet in Calgary this year as renovations are being made to the grandstand leaving Lethbridge ail alone with rac- ing daily. To compiment the fine array of horse talent will be some of the leading jockeys in Western Canada including Ewayne Wise- man who led the way at the Fall Race Meet last year with 24 victories. Also expected back {is Barbara Suitor, who battled I Wiseman all the way for top honors last year and Karen Campbell. This year's meet could very well be the best local racing fans have ever seen. Local offi- cials have worked very hard. It is now up to the hay-burners and bettors to take of the work. Fight lasted two minutes o sweat for Foreman TOKYO (AP) George Fore- man's battering punches took only two minutes today to reaf- firm his hold on the world heavyweight boxing title, but controversy flared over whether the real knockout punch came with challenger Joe (King) Ro- man sitting on the floor. "That did it. I was groggy when I got Roman said about a right-hand punch to the head he took after being floored at of the first round of the scheduled 15-round fight. He went down again 20 sec- onds later, took an eight-count, and then was knocked out by a vicious right uppercut to the jaw at the two-minute mark.

QUINELLA: (33.80 PHILADELPHIA The Philly fight crowd came to sea a closed-circuit tele- vision viewing of a champion- ship bout in Tokyo Friday- night, but the live action in the preliminaries was a hard act to follow. For a match that ended in no decision, welterweights Bobby Haymon and William Walson provided plenty of en- tertainment. Haymon, from Cleveland, took the count sprawled across the ringside press table after tripping Wal- son. a local boxer who slipped to the cam as in the sixth round under a barrage of punches Haymon hit the table head first as he sailed through the ropes, and was carried out of the Spectrum on a s'retcher. Reports on his condition were not immediately available. Haymon was successful in pressing Watson in the first tuo rounds, but then Watson floored Haymon twice in the third with left hooks. Kaymon w.o on the verge of a knock out when the bell rang to end the third. Ha3inon returned to take command in the fourth and fifth, but the sixth-round in- cident resulted in one of the few double knockdowns in his- tory. The fight was one of four preliminaries on the card prior to the closed circuit broadcast from Tokyo of the heavyweight championship fight between champion George Foreman and Puerto Rican challenger Joe (King) Roman. Foreman, who had backed Ro- man to the ropes and had thrown a flurry of punches, was following through on a punch when he hit Eoman on the way down. "It was not a Edson said, adding "I am sure it was not intentional." The referee called the fight a "100-per-cent mismatch." WAVED TO CORNER Edson ruled that the knock- down was not official and waved Foreman to a neutral corner for about 10 seconds to let Roman get up. Roman's camp planned to file a protest to world and Japanese boxing officials. "It a double said trainer Al Eraverman. "He pushed Joe down and hit him on the floor.1' Roman's manager. Bill Daly, told reporters: "If we hadn't jumped up and yelled, he would still be hitting him on the floor." As for Edson's explanation that Foreman was following through on a punch, Braverman replied: "No way." Foreman said he was sure it was not a foul. "It was one of those things." the champion said. COMES OUT BOBBING Roman. No. 9 contender In both the World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association ratings, came out bobbing, weaving and jabbing but never landed an effective punch. Foreman hurt him first with three slamming rights to the body, although Rorran said afterward "They didn't hurt me Foreman quickly over- powered Roman with looping body shots that slowed the chal- lenger down. Roman was hurt when he arose from the second knockdown and dropped in a heap when hit with the final blow.
