Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Thumloy, S.jHembtr 71, _ THl LTTHBRIDCE HMAID _ Friday opener for 12-day Fall show at Whoop-Up Doivns Race officials expecting biggest meet in history By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer It would appear that only poor weather conditions will prevent ttra Lethbridge Exhibi- tion from having its most suc- cessful Fall Race Meet In the 12-year history of the event. "We have more horses than ever, 12 racing days including three Saturdays and a holiday Monday as well as some of the top jockeys from western Can- ada and the north western United said one racing official. Add to this improved track conditions and it all boils down to the weather. "If we get In- dian Summer between now and Thanksgiving, look t'he of- meet will continue until Thanks- ficial added. The opens giving Day, Monday Oct. 9. 1972 Fall Race Meet ''We have 12 racing uireii.-, Friday afternoon, at slated Andy Andrews manager; Whoop-Up Downs with eight of the Exhibition. "There will races set for opening day. Post be three Saturdays and a big time daily is two o'clock. The day Thanksgiving Day." Officials of the meet have eliminated both Tuesday cards as well as Thursday, Sept. 28.' By doing so it is expected the meet will attract more belters than in past with the emphasis on weekend racing. The locals will need good crowds this year if they hope to better last year's banner ef- fort. "We only went nine days last added Andrews, "but they were big days. And don't forget we had a sweepstake last year as well." A BIG YEAR No one's forgetting 1971. It was the first year the Leth- bridge Exihbition people had taken over from the Western Canada Racing Association. "I think we can be proud of our first solo effort last beamed Andrews.

All he needs to win it is a little help from his friends. After his Baltimore Orioles absorbed a vital 9-1 and 4-0 doublehcader sweep at the hands of first-place Boston to tumble 214 games the Red Sox' pace Wednesday night, Weaver studied his Laseball schedule and discovered Boston spends the next four days play- ing second-place Detroit Tigers. Then the Baltimore boss of- fered his analysis. "I'll be rooting for my good friend Billy Mai-tin Thursday and revealed Weaver. "And I'll be rooting for my good friend Eddie Kasko Friday and Sunday. II my good friends win, we'll gel Boston three in a row and we'I be all even with three games to go." RIVALS BETTER OFF Managers Martin of the Ti gers and Kasko of the lied Sox are in infinitely better shape than Weaver today. Detroi trimmed Cleveland Indians 4- Wednesday night and are sec ond, one game behind the Sox with 12 to play compared ti Boston's 13. Weaver's Orioles are third, 2Vi behind, with only nin to play. Fourth place York, rained out at Milwaukee is 3Vi behind with 12 games re- ma ining. Elsewhere, Oakland Athletic reduced tiieir magic number i the West to seven by whippin Chicago Wiiite Sox 6-3, Min nesota Twins topped Texa Bangers 34 and Kansas Cit Royals defeated California An gels 9-2. Baltimore ran into two hi pitchers in Boston and Mart allin and Luis Tiant simply roved to be too much for the Holes. Pattin surrendered five hits n the opener and had an easy me of it when Boston scored even runs in the fourth inning. Carlton Fisk drove in three runs. The vie lory ran Pattin's ecord to 15-12 after a hor- endous 2-9 start. He is 13-3 ince June 12. Tiant, the veteran right- hander with the herky-jerky motion, improved his record to 13-5 with a four-hitter in the nightcap. He has won nine of his last 10. Evans contributed a triple and homer to the second game victory. Woody Fryman fired a six- hitter and drove in a pair of runs with a clutch single after Duke Sims, another National Bowling scores CAPRI BOWL HART TAXIDERMY FranV Bernhart 166, Harry Chap- man 381, Malt Bernharr 268 Vaughan 286 Ben Evanson 252, H.
