Andrews, and all exhibition peop> concerned with the Fall Race Meet, will be looking to the skies more than occasional- ly beginning Friday and ending Sept. 22, two weeks from Satur- day. It was 78 above Wednesday afternoon when Andrews began his star gazing out of his of- fice window at the Exhibition Pavilion. "If this just holds (meaning the beautiful weather) we should have a dandy said Andrews. "Everything is falling into place he added. This year's meet, the third under the total directorship of the local exhibition people, kicks off Friday with a seven- race card and will run through until the 22 of Sept., the run- ning of the Marion Williams Memorial Handicap. 'We have some very good horses on hand for this year's stated Andrews. Actual- ly, the Lethbridge meet is a combination of racing talent 'rom four circuits, including ;he popular Western Canada Racing Circuit." Andrews makes n o bones about the fact the weather is ;he key to any success the ocals hope to have this time around. If the weather holds a new record could be establish- ed in the 12 day mutuel handle. In the 1971 the meet realized over while last year fell below the magic 000 mark because of bad weather. Another break for the locals was the decision by the Calgary Exhibition Board to build a new grandstand. The Calgary Fall Race Meet will not be held so a good many horses from Cal- gary and Edmonton are expect- ed to give local racing buffs excellent action. The Lethbridge meet is run completely on a local basis and Andrews would like nothing better than to see the show go and go big. "We have a lot of people who work very hard" says An- drews. "The only reimburse- ment they meet is a receive is if the success, they have with her husband, tablish the Fall done their job well." The Marion Williams feature is the big one of the meet and according to Andrews, Lee Wil- liams will be on hand and be hopes to win the purse, the largest of the 12-day event. Marion Williams, the late wife of Lee Williams, together helped es- Race Meet some 13 years back. "Mrs. Williams was very well thought of here in local racing circles" said Andrews, :his feature race is a big thing." One other highlight of the meet will be a Stars- of Yester- day race. Not much has been released regarding the names of horses and riders for this race but it is known that old 'avorites will be back on the track once more. night Cranham of Toronto was' eighth BEST BET SAME AFFAIR 8th RACE LONG SHOT PIXIE BELL 4th RACE POST TIME P.M. i and it enabled her to pick up a among eight finalists 455.76 Tafoer indoor rodeo Friday The Taber Civic Centre will be the site of the Kinsmen door rodeo this Friday and Saturday.
