46 OREELEV (Colo.) TRIBUNE Wtd...May25.1877 Cuufhen In 'satisfactory' condition after Beimont track NEW YOHK (UPI) - Sieve Cauthen, hopitalized with an assortment of broken bones, is described as in "satisfactory" condition but will be kept in the hospital until the end of this week. The 17-year-old apprentice, who came out the worst of any jockey as a result of a three- horse spill at Beimont Park Monday, is still wrapped in gauze and plaster with frac- Tribune tures of his right arm. a rib, two fingers on his right hand and a deep laceration above his right eye. At first, it was thought he would be released a day or two after the accident but a Long Island Jewish Hospital spokesman said the jockey would have to remain until at least Friday. On Tuesday, Cauthen saw his mother, who flew from her home in Walton, Ky., as well as his guardian, Linda Taliaferro. and his agent. Lennie Goodman. More than a dozen newsmen at the hospital were not allowed to see the young racing sensation, who leads the nation with 273 winners this year. Cauthen, who also suffered a slight concussion, was riding Bay Streak in the fourth race when the horse broke his leg and buckled, sending the 93- pound jockey hurtling to the track. Jorge Velasquez, aboard Volney, rammed into Cauthen, causing Velasquez to tumble. Low Return, ridden by Pat Day, then careened into the fallen horses, catapulting Day to the ground. Day was unhurt, but Velasquez and Cauthen were 'rushed to the hospital, where doctors treated Velasquez for a broken ankle and then released him with a cast. Both Volney and Bay Streak had to be destroyed. Cauthen was treated immediately for his broken rib, which was bandaged, and arm, which was placed in a cast. Fifteen stitches were applied to close a gash in his hand and 10 more stitches were needed to close another gash above his eye, X- rays Tuesday revealed he also sustained frnelures of the third and fourth fingers on his right hand and splints were applied. Caulhen will be out of action for at least six weeks, thereby losing any chance at riding in the Beimont Stakes June 11. There were broad hints that Cauthen would have been named to ride Hun Dusty Run -- second in the Prcakness and third in the Kentucky Derby in the Beimont. Velasquez, who rode Iron Constitution first to an upset victory over Cormorant in the Withers Stakes and then guided the 30-1 longshot to an impressive second to Seattle Slew in the Preakness, is expected to choose between Iron Constitution or Sanhedrin - third in the Kentucky Derby - for the Ilelmont, in spite of the likelihood that he still will be wearing a cast on his ankle. Sports pages Ramsey finds little right with Blazer film performance By ALEX SACHARE AP Sports Writer PHILADELPHIA CAP) - It was not Jack Ramsay's favorite picture, certainly no "Gone With the Wind." The coach of the Portland Trail Blazers had just gone over the game films of Sunday's 107-101 loss to Phila- delphia in the opener of the National Basketball Association championship playoffs, and his review was something less than a rave. . "It's hard to win a game where you make 34 turnovers -- our average is about 17," said Ramsay. "We gave them fast break opportunities. We didn't run our offense effectively. We didn't pass the ball crisply. We didn't come to meet the ball with authority. We didn't have steals from our guards in the backcourt." On and on, Ramsay ticked off the things the Blazers did wrong before finally stumbling onto a silver lining, of sorts. Fort Lupton youth to enter marathon FORT LUPTON, Colo. (UPI) - Sean Hartley, 8, could ride to school in a bus. But the youngster has hopes of being "a good runner" someday, so he picks up his books and runs the 15-mile roundtrip distance every day. "I don't know why I like to run, but I do," the second grade student said. "I want to be a good runner someday. I like to run. It's fun." Sean will be the youngest person ever entered in this Sunday's Mile High Marathon, a grueling 26-mile, 385-yard annual race. Andhis father, Chris, thinks the youngster has "an awful good chance of finishing high." Sean hadn't always planned to be a runner. His first race, a little over two months ago, came about by chance. "I took my other son, D. J., to run in a three- mile race and Sean said he wanted to run, too," Hartley said. "I told him he couldn't run that far but he insisted, so I let him. He not only finished, he was among the top placers." After that, Hartley let the boy Join the Mile High Roadruhners, a distance running club, and the youngster has been training seriously ever since. "He runs 15 miles every day, to school and back, and runs real long one day a week," Hartley said. "He just seems to get better and better all the time." Last week, Sean entered the Half-a : Marathon Race at Horsetooth Reservoir near Fort Collins. "He only weighs 50 pounds and the 50-mile- an-hour winds blew him off the road twice," Hartley said. "But he got back on, passed up five adults and finished ahead of seven grownups." Last Wednesday, the boy ran 26% miles as a workout and finished within a few seconds of the world's record for his age group at that distance. Sunday, he ran in a 10,000-meter handicap race against adults ano\a computer saidhe finished second. "I took him out Saturday for a six-mile run and when he was finished I told him he'd have to run more than four times that far in the marathon," Hartley said. "He just looked at me and said, "That's a piece of cake, Dad.'" D.J., 14, also had planned to enter the marathon race but developed tendonitis two weeks ago and was forced to drop out. "The doctors told him not to run for four weeks, but every day he goes out to meet Sean on his way home from school and run the last mile with him," Hartley said. "We give him hell for it, but it doesn't do any good. They just like to run." FREE AIR CONDITIONER, A'475'VAIUE PLUS FREE INSTALLATION! If you buy a new 1977 Saab between Now and May 31, 1977.

AT BOB MARKIEY IMPORTS 353-3311 GREELEY 3805 W. 10th St. SAAB "The fact that we can play as ineffectively as we did and still be in the game at the end should show something," he suggested. Indeed, the only Portland player who really played up to par in the opener of the best-of- seven series was Bill Walton, who had 28 points and 20 rebounds. Power forward Maurice Lucas fouled out and was never a dominating force; Bob Gross fouled out chasing after Julius Erving, and starting guards Lionel Hollins and Johnny Davis combined for just 13 points. "Our game is not predicated on one man playing well," said . Ramsay after running the Blazers through a practice session Tuesday. "All five have to play well." Did he feel Portland had played at 90 per cent of its potential? "Oh, no, by no means," he . replied. "We played way below that, if we had played 90 per cent, we'd have won by 15.'-' Ramsay said if the Blazers are to even the series by winning Game Two Thursday night, they'll have to contain the Sixers' big guns -- Julius Erving, Doug Collins and · George McGinnis. He included McGinnis in that- group even though the muscular forward has been in the throes.of a dismal slump during'the playoffs, contributing just eight points -on 3-for-12 shooting -- and two rebounds Sunday. What about the strategic wrinkle put in by Philadelphia Coach Gene Shue of having center Caldwell Jones bring the ball upcourt? That seemed to neutralize the defensive pres^ sure in the backcourl which was so much a -factor in the . Blazers' semifinal sweep of Los Angeles. But Ramsay disagreed. · · "The fact that they bring up the ball with somebody other · than their guards really doesn't affect how we're going to play defense," he said. "Our defense is predicated on stopping their running game and making them play half-court offense. If they're goirig to bring the ball up with a big player, that's not a factor because it means they're going to have to start their offense even higher." Shue, however, says he expects the Blazers to make some moves to counteract Jones'role as playmaker. Both clubs resumed workouts Tuesday after a day's rest and will practice again today. The Sixers' practice will be closed, as were the two sessions last week when Shue put in the Jones maneuver. Short Stuff A benefit exhibition volleyball match featuring the Denver Comets pro team will be played at 7 p.m. Thursday at Poudre High School in Fort Collins to raise funds for Kayomi Hasegawa, an all- Northern Conference player as a junior last year, who was severely injured in an auto accident. Her parents still live in Japan. Walt her changes mind about taking Indy spot INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) Salt Walther thought about the other-guy and decided he'd watch the Indianapolis 500 from the sidelines. Walther Tuesday said he would not replace Bill Puterbaugh as the driver of a car Walther's father bought for that purpose. "I know how I would feel if I had to give up my only chance at the 500 and I guess it's this reason as much as any other that helped me to make up my mind," -Walther said in a statement issued through the Walmotor Racing operation at the Speedway. Walther, who was in West- Chester County, N.Y., said he urged his father, George Walther, and his brother, Jeffrey, to reinstate. Puterbaugh as driver. The elder Walther Monday purchased the car Piiterbaugh was to drive and planned to put Salt Walther, who had failed to qualify a machine for the 500, in the driver's seat. A spokesman for Wolmotor and Day ton-Walther Corp. said Puterbaugh agreed to drive. The decision to retain Puterbaugh apparently would mean that the car would revert to the 28th starting spot after being shifted to 33rd. Walther's decision followed a flurry of reaction from other members of the racing fraternity after the purchase .was disclosed.' That sale, however, will remain valid and Wolmotor and Foreman Industries, Inc. would continue as new sponsor-owners of the car originally entered by Lee Elkins Enterprises. Puterbaugh, who said he was contemplating legal action, said the experience was the "most nerve-racking of my life." He added . however, "I think I But he said he felt Walther's dcscrve the S P° 1 - l fcel e decision to reject the ride his same . wa ' he does ~ thal ! father bought "makes him a should be the one to drive the gentleman." race car."
