f«9» D«4--INDEPENDENT l "« *«**· tM ' Tt ""« * * * * · ' LEADER PICK FADES Ranger Knight Scores Upset By MAC McGUIRE In one of the biggest up* sets of the current Western Harness Racing Association spring season. Ranger Knight held off Surprise News to score a head victory in taking the $12,500 Spring Sophomore Pace at Santa Anita Wednesday, while the topheavy 2-5 choice, Leader Pick, finished third. A crowd of 7,884 spectators watched Leader Pick grab the lead going around the first turn and the Ciena Abbe colt set a blistering pace, with fractions of 30 seconds for the first quarter Harness Handicap By ROY BETZ and 1:00^ for tha half. He was still In the lead enter- Ing the ttretch and for a moment It appeared that he might hold off Ranger Knight However, the early pace weakened Leader Pick near the wire and Ranger Knight pulled in front, with Surprise News closing fast, almost taking It and missing by only a head. The winning time was a good 2:02 with the last quarter In 29 seconds. Jim Dennis, the leading driver of the meeting with 17 victories In 17 days of racing, was expected to add to his total with Leader Pick, but instead. Jimmy Cruise moved a notch closer to the lead when he registered his 14th winner behind Scotch Signal ($9.80) in the third race. IHU«5D*T, »MIU 5-HTH D»r Of »D»Y MKTINO Cleer. Fell. fw»t rtlM.JI f.

The reason, I discover, is a wrenched back suffered dur ng the Palm Springs Classic. It forced him from the tour for more than a month. He returned to play in the recent Pcnsacola and 51 Petersburg opens, but failed to survive the 36- hole cut in each event. And even prior to Palm Springs, the classy San Franciscan had not played well. Last year, he earned $25,572 n 27 tournaments, but failed . . -Vm M Iro" »!«.»« fllort.

By DAVE TAYLOR At the risk of beating a dead horse, let's so around again In the big arena of pin pelting as a spectator sport. ·While back, midst all the moaning and groaning over tho resounding flop of the National Cowling League, all hands had just about arrived at the conclusion that chances of making boivling a big au dicncc attraction were just a shade darker than bleak. Sponges full of blood, s w e a t and I-toId-you-so's were flopping into the ring like quitting time at a car wash, and the general atti lude from all quarters was "We Give Up! ! !" * · · · SEEMED like a pretty sen' sible Idea then when every' one was on the verge of losing his shirt, but the dust having settled, we need another look to decide whether bowling just hasn't got it for the crowds, or whether the NBL folded for other reasons. On that score, the Apri issue of Popular Dowling Magazine features an article by Jerry Levin which states about 10 reasons for the steady collapse of the NBL, all adding up to mismanage mcnt and not enough cash for promotion. » · e.

TevmeTient at to score a single victory and has yet to qualify for the Las Vegas Tournament of Cham pions. So the Venturi mystery deepens. How can a golfer with as much promise and ability as Ken not attain his pronounced ambition of be coming a true champion and winning the Big Ones--the Masters and U.S. Open? The pros have one answer. They voted him one of the three worst players under pressure In a recent poll. That may contain a germ of truth, but It Is hard to buy for anyone who watched him win at Los Angeles, Palm Springs and Pebble Beach In 1958, 59 and 60, Some Insist his trouble stems back to his Infamous :lowup as an amateur in the I95G Masters when he kissed away the title with an SO on the final round. Yet, hasn't he won 10 pro tournaments since then? I have always been a Vcn turi booster, and refuse to desert him now. Logic die atcs the choice of Arnold Palmer to win the Masters this week, but sentiment swings this PARticular vote to Ken Vcnturi. icvtn vttrs *i t» tixrtuivt cm«dt of J.fU AM 4.231 far trxir two MC**rtnct Utt wttk * * * * EVEN MORE TO tti* Doinf.
