Whoop-Up Downs track heavy from rain Front Desk wins Long feature By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor There were no real mudders at the second day of the 1973 Fall Race Meet at Whoop-Up Downs Saturday. The track, made heavy from over night and morning rains, caused times to be well over past performances. Front Desk, the tote-board favorite, won the featured Long and Long Insurance trophy blanket in a time just short of walking over the seven furlong distance. With jockey Graham Nibblet in the irons Front Desk went out at a weight of 121 pounds and all of it appeared to be lead. Front Desk, owned by the Golden Heart Stables of Calgary and trained by Mrs. Fred Miller, bested the field of six horses in one minute. 37 and three-fifth seconds. Nibblet took the favorite to the front early in the race and coasted to victory over second place Country Cutup with Vern Watson in the saddle. Alvin McCauley. who rode two winners opening day. came up with two more Satur- day. He won the first race aboard Sure Speed and then survived a photo finish in the fifth race on Gay Stitch. In winning the first race McCauley and his mount com- bined with Big Bambi. ridden by Ivan Clark, for a payoff. the third race, a combina- tion' of Chine's Annie, with Larry Wiseman up and Miss Tom tops field AKRON. Ohio Weiskopf pulled away from Jack Nicklaus in the stretch drive and scored a three- stroke victory with a final- round fifi Sunday in the World Series of golf. Weiskopf had a two-round total of 137. three under par on the 7.180-yard Firestone Country Club course. He collected for this title that like his British Open triumph is considered an unofficial event by the professional Golfers Association. Still, it was his sixth victory of the season-unequalled this year on the pro tour-- and pushed his total money winnings for the season to Of that, is of- ficial. Nicklaus, winner of five titles this season twas tied with Weiskopf with only five holes to play, but started slipping. The event brings together the game's Big Four winners the American and British Open champions, the Masters winner and the PGA national titleholder. Nicklaus had a 60 and was tied at 140 with Johnny Miller, who closed with a 67. Each won Tommy Aaron, the Masters champion, was never in it. He closed with a 73-149 and won as the last man. Generally, it was a two-man struggle between Weiskopt and Nicklaus, who shared the first-day lead with lacklustre 71s. Weiskopf bogeyed the first hole on the final round, then made eagle three on the second, reaching the green with a one-iron second shol and canning a 22-foot putt. Nicklaus missed a 2'2-foot birdie putt on the first hole, then bogeyed the fourth and fifth, missing the green to the right on each one. Then he began a string of seven con- secutive threes, five of them birdies. had the momentum. From that point on I thought I could Nicklaus said. He had pulled even when the string ended and retained a share of the top spot when both he and Weiskopf bogeyed the 13lh hole. ON A WONDERFUL. LIKE CH BLIMEY WHEN YOU PRINK TO 'ON WELL VOU ARE AN1 ON YOUNG- YOU FEEL, THAT'S AGE Admits being the best Court takes it all FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (AP) Margaret Court shyly ad- mitted Saturday that she's the best woman tennis player ever to take to the court. "My record must show she said softly, almost in embarrassment, after her 7-6. 5-7, 6-2 triumph over another Australian, Evonne Goolagong, in the United States Open championship final. "I guess I must think it within said the Australian mother when pressed for an answer, "Otherwise I wouldn't have the drive that I do. I think I have a gift and I enjoy using it and showing others how to do it." Mrs. Court now has 24 ma- jor titles to her credit: 11 Australian, five French, three Wimbledons and now five U.S. Opens. In 1970 she became only the second woman in the history of the sport to win all four ma- jor championships in a single year. The late Maureen Con- nolly did it in 1953. FAMILY AFFAIR Mrs. Court, who travels the. world circuit with her husband, Barry, and their 18- month-old son, Daniel, succeeded Billie Jean King as the U.S. Open champion only weeks after surpassing Mrs. King's single-season money record. With her singles prize Saturday, her earnings for the year to date total more than Mrs. King's 1971 record by more Illness claims Boa ST. CATHARINES. Ont. (CP) Gil Boa. one of Canada's alltime great marksmen, is dead of a brain hemorrhage. A member of five Canadian Olympic rifle teams, he died Friday night at the age of 49. He was half of the only Cana- dian father-son team ever to win the top-ranking King's Prixc at Bisley. England, and he held a string of other cham- pionships in a long shooting career. He won the King's Prize as the top Commonwealth marksman at Bisley in 1951, and three year's later he won the Governor-General's Prize at the Dominion of Canada Ri- fle Association meet. In 1954 he won the gold medal for small-bore rifles at ihe world championships at Caracas. Venezuela, and in 19fiK he also took the small- bore gold medal at the Com- mon wealth Games in Jamaica. than In addition to winning several national titles this year, including the Australian and French, Mrs. Court took 13 of the 16 women's pro tournaments she entered, good for in pay che- ques. Despite her successes, she has received a minimum of publicity compared with the outspoken Mrs. King. "It doesn't bother she said. "About the only thing Billie Jean and I have in com- mon is tennis. "I'm not outspoken like she is or seek publicity like she does and I'm not a women's libber. DISAGREES Mrs. King disagreed. "What else would you call someone whose husband travels everywhere with her and doesn't have a Mrs. King asked. But Barry Court is a world- class yachtsman and wealthy in his own right. "If he couldn't be with said Margaret. "I'd quit ten- nis tomorrow." And at age 31, the question of when she plans to quit haunts her at every stop on the tennis tour.
