Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta -Soturdoy, Saplember 8, 1973 THE IETHBRIDGF HERAld JJ3 Seven races Friday Suitor wins a pair as race meet opens By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor The sun may not have shone on the opening day of the 1973 Fall Race Meet at Whoop-Up Downs but somebody, as the saying goes, likes Barbara Suitor. Suitor, women's favorite and the cause of a great deal of embarrassment to male joc- keys, slipped past the field early in the featured race Fri- day and then staved off a strong challenge from Take One Step ridden by Ivan Clark. In a photo, however. Suitor and her mount All Chard, were clear winners. All Chard, owned and train- ed by Fred Sensible of Cal- gary, paid to win as he covered the one mile and one eighth distance in two minutes, one and one-fifth seconds. The victory earned Scheible the winner's share of the purse as well as the Valley Feeders trophy blanket. For Suitor it marked her sec- ond straight win of the after- noon. She rode the first half of the S53.50 exactor of Hope You Hurry to Jake's Jewel in the fifth. Kake's Jewel was ridden by Larry Wiseman. Alvin McCauley, who won top jockey honors in the 1971 meet, started the day with two wins in the first three races. He guided Tiz-A-Puff home ahead of the pack in the first race and then was atop Rag- By Willie Ketchum MONDAY'S SELECTIONS FIRST RACE S500 claiming for 4 year olds and up About Five Furlongs Hula Man Wayward Sun Array Mary Fancy Last Trust Tedlee Caribou Trail lit go today 122 kno'vs the way 122 will push 116 good horse could be not this time cculd be IT? 122 119 SECOND RACE claiming for 4 year olds and up Seven Furlongs Lady's Trip Msu Class Busier Kid Flmtstone JaKe's Jewel Little Deer 117 117 119 119 111 122 my choice can do it will try not this time watch this could be THIRD RACE claiming for 3 year olds About Five Furlongs Jusf Affair Lady Whirl-a-go Pointed Indian Meganser Look Out Snoozy Vix Lady Winter Field Wynscope 122 122 122 122 111 114 119 119 knows hew will be close will be looking don't know watch out nn need1: a race could be an upset FOURTH RACE claiming for 4 year olds and up About Five Furlongs Monday Morn Pixlo Erllo Mister Rideabout Ta Tayet Grey Cup Star Rcsrfved Speed 122 116 122 111 119 114 class horse set the pace v.'ill make them run will 4e m there no! today in fast company FIFTH RACE claiming for 4 year olds and up Seven Furiongs Wimple Street Smart Bet Fleeting Bar Barb's Luck Restless Willow Lustrous Star 118 122 117 112 119 119 m> choice ccUd be gccd competition COL Id be watch out his turn SIXTH RACE claiming for 3 year olds and up Ssven Furlongs Blue Twst Callege Count Blue Mustango Save Speed Win-M-Grin 121 I'kes the front 124 will push '21 will be tough 121 could be upset 121 able to run SEVENTH RACE claiming for 3 year olds and up Seven Furlongs Glib Big Edge Hope You Hurry Tame Prince Color Me Lucky Miss Easter Day 115 M9 116 12-: 116 116 watch him will be in they's better needs a rcce could r-e upset not today EIGHTH RACE S500 claiming for 4 year olds and up About Five Furlongs j Rain Taurus Old Fort Star Swip Jet Courier Carbon County Missy Way Brush Dexter Boy 122 has what it takes 122 likes out front 122 good horse 122 could be there 119 nor loday 122 could be upset 117 has a chance 119 could be rough POST TIME p.m. BEST BET 7th Race LONG SHOT CARIBOU TRAIL 1st Race CANADA'S NO. 1 LOADER BOBCAT Loads Unloads Hauls Lift] Shovels if 4 wheel drive ir 4 models 500 Ib. to Ib. ir Rent with or without operator if Contract prices available PHONE 328-4765 AUTHORIZED DISTRIBUTOR C and J EQUIPMENT RENTALS 1410 2nd Ave. S., Lethbridge Independent Order of Foresters Bowling League 9 September Nth -9 p.m. DOWNTOWN BOWLADROME 3 GAMES Phone; ROBIN WHEELDON 327.8056 LOUISE OBER 328-2241 DOWNTOWN BOWLADROME 328-7122 Curling to start in Octobe GET YOUR TEAMS READY Phone: LLOYD CAREFOOT 328-1327 ED OBER 328-3216 time Robert as he won the third.

He found the kind of good sira. he was looking for Friday night when his Kansas City Chiefs grounded out a 16-7 vic- tory over St. Louis Cardinals in their National Football League exhibition game. "I'm real pleased with this one." Strain said. 'The last three years we've lost our last pre-season game and then the opener of the regular season. I hope this reverses a In the other NFL action, De- troit Lions crushed New Eng- land Patriots 34-21 and Los An- gelas Rams rolled over San Francisco !49ers 32-10. Jeff Kinney. a second-year runner from Nebraska, burst over left guard to score s Land- ing up midway through the third period to tie the game for the Chiefs and Jan Stenerud fol- lowed up with three field goals to give them the win. The passing of Len Dawson, the 38-year-old veteran quarter- back, helped the Chiefs turn the game around after a listless first half that left them trailing 7-0 at halftime. Greg Landry was told he'd start the NFL season at quar- terback two weeks ago by new Detroit head coach Don McCafferty and Friday night he celebrated. Landry did everything but play defence as he passed for three touchdowns and ran for another in the Lions' victory. He finished with 15 completions in 20 passing attempts for 275 yards. Sam Cunningham scored all three New England touchdowns. Safety man Dave Elmendorf picked off three passss, return- ing one 72 yards for a touch- HANNA BIGNS JACKSONVILLE, Fla.

By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Writer It was Oscar Walters' night, at the Taber Indoor Rodeo Fri- day. a newlywed cowboy from Lethbridge, found him- self in the lead in two events and sitting in third spot in an- other after the opening perfor- mance of the two-day show. He stuck to the back of a bull named Tar Baby for the high marking of 76 points and than dropped his steer in 4.8 seconds to take the early lead in the steer wrestling as well. He also spurred out a 64 in the saddle bronc riding, good for third spot. Knotted in second place in the bull riding were two young riders, Phil Van Cleave of j Taber and Joey Masnyk of Coaldale. Both boys earned 72 points for their efforts atop the bulls. Second spot in the steer wrestling is held by Abe Andreas of Taber with a time of 4.9 seconds. Third place in the extremely tight race is held by Lethbridge's Allan Jones with a 5.9 while Brian Mande- ville, also of Lethbridge is next in line with a 6.3 timing.

(AP) "everybody looks at Ali like he is super human but I think he has deteriorated like a natural man." Eddie Futch, manager of Ken Norton said Friday. Muhammad Ali is a 12-5 fa- vorite to win Monday night's scheduled 12-round fight at The Forum and avenge his broken- jaw loss to Norton last March 31. But Futch is quietly confident that Norton will win "because I think I know how Ali can be beaten and I think I have the fighter who can carry out the plan." Futch, who wouldn't discuss his battle plan, also was in Joe Frazier's corner the night Fra- zier handed Ali the only other dersat of his pro career. "I wouldn't be surprised if Ken stops said Futch. "He's the kind of puncher who can take a man out. I don't think Ali can stick and dance for seven or eight rounds like he could four or five years ago. When you're 31, you act like 31." "Ali definitely has problems and I think Ali knows it." At a rule meeting presided over by Bob Turley, chairman of the California State Athletic Commission, Angelo Dundee, Ali's trainer, asked that the ac- cidental butting rule be waived. However, Futch said he fa- vored the rule. points for a commanding lead.

Under California rules, if the referee sees an accidental butt occur and decides the butted man cannot continue, the butted man wins if he is ahead at the time or the fight is declared a technical draw if the butted man is behind. The fight is a draw if the butt occurs in the first round. Turley also said the three- knockdown rule was waived and that if a man is down, the count would continue when the bell rang ending a the last round. The fighters will wear 10- ounee gloves made in Mexico. The weigh-in will be held Sun- day instead of the day of the fight. Turley noted that since there is no weight-limit for heavyweights, there was no need to wait until Monday for the weigh-in.
