San Francisco Examiner iAIIbasw track o without a F-8 Tuesday, February 4, 1986 picket penis - By Al Corona OF TIC tXAMINf P. STAFF ALBANY - With the threat of a labor dispute settled, Golden Gate Fields today opens its 40th season of ' thoroughbred racing. GGF, where picket lines have al-most become part of the opening ; rites during recent meetings, man- aged to avoid that fate this time I when last-minute sessions brought I contract agreement between the I track and its janitors and security guards. J Scheduled to run through June 22, the 100-day spring session will be I conducted on a Tuesday through ' Saturday format, with post time for the first of nine races 1 p.m. The Pacific Racing Association will control the GGF operation through May 4, before Tanforan takes over for the season's final 35 days. Kacing will switch to a Wednesday-through-Sunday format on May 30. Golden Gate also will serve as host for the highly successful inter-track wagering. Bay Meadows, the original host, will now join Cal Expo in Sacramento, Stockton, Santa Ko sa and the Fresno Fairgrounds as satellite TV outlets, where the GGF races will be shown and wagers can be made. Bay Meadows publicist Bob Wuerth yesterday credited inter-track wagering with being instrumental in the San Mateo track's financially successful season. For its 80-day program, which concluded yesterday, Bay Meadows attracted 1,002,301 patrons for an average of 12,529 daily, up 22.3 percent over last year. The total muluel handle of $198,604,313 was a new record for an 80 day meeting. The daily handle averaged $2,482,544. "Credit inter-track wagering for. making the difference," said Wuerth. "And you can also credit Bob Gunderson (Bay Meadows' president and general manager). He spearheaded the drive to make inter-track wagering a reality." What's more, Wuerth believes that inter-track betting has only scratched the surface. "In the first place," Wuerth pointed out, "traffic congestion was the main reason for the innovation. "Traveling up from the Pcninsu- la to Golden Gate Fields or from the North Bay to Bay Meadows has become Increasingly difficult because of the traffic. And it will probably get worse before it gets better. "Making it easier for these fans to bet and watch the races through satellite television has to be good for business. And remember, this meeting was the first ever. Improvements will be made." For one, a suggestion has been made by Gunderson that there be a slight reallocation of money generated by inter track betting to better reward the host track for its loss of live customers. As for the California lottery affecting betting at Bay Meadows, Wuerth admitted it was impossible to make an assessment. "We were up from last year," he said, "but that was with the Inter-track bet-ting. We don't know what would have happened without It." f But Wuerth doesn't believe the lottery will hurt the tracks that much. "Horse players are a different bi ecd of cal. They pride them-selves on being able pick a winner through study. Theirs is no numbers game as is the lottery. And, ; who knows? Once those lottery players realize they have a better chance of winning on the horses, they may switch their gambling habits." Bay Meadows won't be dark, long. Its winter quarter-horse meeting opens on Feb. 14 and runs through April 20. Kacing will be held four days a week, with Friday and Saturday night programs start ing at 6:45 and Sunday and Monday programs at 12:30 p.m. In the feature race of yesterday's final day at Bay Meadows, Aunt Stcl took the lead shortly Otter the start and successfully rcsiSl-' cd several challenges from L'Dctcjp-live to defeat the latter by three lengths in the Moment To Buy 'Cap.

The track planned to resume racing tomorrow. Honors for two Card MVPs .ASSOCIATED PRESS By Bill Luther SCrilPPS HOWARD Nt WS SERVICE CHAltlXMTK, N.C. - Willy T. Kibbs, the race driver who didn't make it at the Indianapolis 500, has redirected his attention to NASCA1L When he arrives, Itibbs may be the most outspoken driver to take to the high banks since Darrcll Wallrip. Beginning with the Atlanta 500 on March 16, four races into the Winston Cup season, Kibbs will be the new kid on the block. Actually, Kibbs is 30 years old. lie tomes from San Jose, Calif. A graduate of the Trans Am series, he will become the first black to run the Cup circuit since Wendell Scott in the mid-1970s. Kibbs says he is low-key, but he can be brash and frank. He can trade barbs with anyone. He is undoubtedly the first rookie driver to call a 9 a.m. press conference. He knows what it means to get the attention of a battery of racing writers. ' ' . Kibbs wore a brown business suit. He added a white headband and dark glasses, to look as much as he could like Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMa-' hon. Kibbs' headband said "NASCAR" in large letters. "That is as far as I'll go with names on the headband because 1 can't stand the fines," quipped Kibbs. Kibbs says he and Darrcll Wallrip (three-time Winston Cup champion and winningest driver in NASCAK for the past decade) arc from the same neighborhood. "By that, 1 mean I'm controversial, too," said Kibbs with an ear-to-car grin. Kibbs will be driving 15 races for DiGard Inc., the outfit Bobby Allison left eight months ago. Kibbs has no big-bucks sponsor. He figures he'll get one if he wins rookic-of-lhe-ycar honors. He has hopes the expertise which took him to the Trans Am driving title in 1985 will carry over into NASCAK's toughest division and earn first place in the rookie race, if not on a track. He believes 16 victories In 39 Trans Am races and 29 wins in 65 career starts gave him the necessary experience. "I'm disappointed we won't gel to debut at Daytona where all the corporate sponsors will be," said Kibbs. "But 1 want to be as competitive as possible when I drive the first race. We're building a new car (I'ontiac) and I'll get in all the practice 1 can at Atlanta and Talladega. I'll use all my energies this year in Winston Cup driving and not compete in any other races." t : ' ' , i ' f Willy T. Ribbs 'My personality has transcended my color.' Kibbs says the team will build a car to run Riverside and Watkins Glen road courses. Kibbs talked about being black. "Being a black driver means nothing in the way I feel about driving a race car. When you're out there racing, it doesn't matter what color you arc. My personality has transcended my color. You should be measured by what you do, not by your color." Kibbs realizes NASCAK is a new challenge. "NASCAK racing is different from any I've done. Thai's why 1 plan to practice as much as possible before Atlanta. 1 want to be prepared to go into the turns at Talladega at more than 200 miles an hour. Yes, 1 mean with cars all around, on both sides, in front and behind me." 1 : Kibbs said he has been received wll by Bill France and NASCAK. 5 "Bill France (NASCAK president) lias gone out of his way to help in the transition. There arc no personal or social problems." j Asked if boxing promoter Don Ki$g is involved in his NASCAK venture, Kibbs responded: "Absolutely not. Iln no role model. 1 set my own standard" Kibbs looks forward to rubbiflg shoulders with big names in this gamfi. "It has been said I'm an advocate $f contact racing. 1 look forward to nfn-ning against (Dale) Earnhardt and Wgl-trip. Any driver who is a champion knows his limits. No, I'm not going out there and run over people. But it's goSi-na be run rubbing sheet metal. f : "I've won twice as many races the last three years as any other driver. My winning percentage is second only to Mar.k Donahue. My record made it obvious I was a top candidate to go to the big UnSc (Winston Cup)," Kibbs said. "You have to go with the messages you gel in life. Things arc falling into place. 1 guess I've had a few breaks but . getting to where 1 am has not been eas'. , Dad nearly went broke. The last Ihiife ; he told me when I decided to race fei ' NASCAK was, 'You better win.' " Girardelli retakes overall lead in World Cup IXAMINfRNlWSStrtVICf S Defending champion Marc Girardelli of Luxembourg shot back to the lop of the men's overall World Cup ski standings today by winning a super-giant slalom race for his first victory of the season. Girardelli covered the 2227-meter (7,349 fool) course al Crans-Montana, Switzerland, in 1 minute, 47.34 seconds, beating runner-up Markus Wasmaier of West Germany by 12-hundrcdths of a second. The West German was limed in 1:47.46. Third in 1:47.64 was Swiss Peter Mueller, winner of the season's first Supcr-G 24 hours earlier on the same hill. He was 30 hundredths of a second back.

IIS Girardelli, 22, flawlessly negotiated a drop of 602 meters (1,987 feet) that featured bumps and a tricky series of bends just before the Piste Nalionalc course's finish. "1 was tense in the first Suer-G," he said. "Today 1 fell it was going belter, but I'm still amazed. J would easily have settled for something like fifth place." "It was a reward for five weeks of hard training, though 1 mainly practiced slalom and giant slalom," he said. Girardelli regained the lead in the overall World Cup standings with 167 points, three ahead of Mueller, who had moved lo the top after yesterday's race. "But I'm still far away from winning the Cup. We're only halfway through the season. 1 hope I'll be good in the remaining races." Mueller remained the leader in the Supcr-G specialty standings with 40 points ahead of Wasmeier, who has 35. It was Girardelli's J9lh victory in seven World Cup seasons and the third Super-G triumph of his career. Today again brought excellent conditions, brilliant sunshine making the course slightly softer than yesterday. The men's circuit next moves to France with a downhill in Morzinc set for Friday. Charvatova's first win P1ANCAVAI J A It aly - With a broad smile and an amazed expression, Olga Charvatova, a 23-ycar-old Czechoslovakia!! gym teacher, today celebrated her first-ever World Cup victory in a women's special slalom ski race.' "1 am so surprised," she conceded, after upsetting the favorite French, Austrian and Swiss skiers down the Sauc course. - j Only 12th after the first run, Charvatova skied the fastest second heat for a winning aggregate time ol 1 minute, 28.08 seconds. , World slalom champion I'crrinc Pclcn of Frande, who had been 84 hundredths of a second faster thn Charvatova in the 'first; heat, skied a too cautious second run and. finished runner-up, thrcc-hundredtjs of a second behind in 1:28.1 1. Despite the bitter disappointment for missing her I6lh Cup victory, she congratulated her Czechoslovak-an opponent, whose previous best result in the World Cup had been a third place in a downhill at Vcrbicr Jn 1984. . "J had not been training in slalom for two wccjjs and 1 am really amazed with today's enterprise," Charvatova said at the finish line. She clocked heat timesSf 44.40 and 43.68 seconds while Pclcn had 43.54 and 44.57. "Now 1 am confident to do well also on the hoilfc track," she added. 2 A special and a giant slalom are scheduled in Jasiia, Czechoslovakia, on Feb. 8 9. Bi igittc Oertli was the lop finisher of the powerful Swiss team, in third place with a time of 1:28.19. 1 Her veteran teammate, Erika Hess, a heavy favorite in the race, finished sixth, dropping two places frofli the first heat. However, she took over the lead in the overall Cim standings with 186 points, two ahead of teammate Maria Walliscr, a downhill specialist who did not start in the slalom here. The U.S. team had a poor showing. Beth Madsen 6f Aspen, Colo., was the lone American finisher in 24J3i and last place, 3.7 seconds behind Charvatova. J Fva Twardokens, from Squaw Valley, Calif., fell i the second run, while Tamara McKinney, a former World Cup overall champion, did not make the top 4t0 qualifying for the second heal.

Handle: tt,H7A2- iTja-!.;.; i COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio Slate head basketball coach Kldon Miller and the university readied a "compromise" yesterday that will pul an end lo Miller's 10-ycar tenure with the Buckeyes at the end of the current season. Miller met with OSU athletic director Kick Bay early yesterday morning to discuss the Buckeye men's basketball program, and the result was Miller stepping down. Bay, speaking at an afternoon press conference, said Miller had not resigned and had not been fired. "He came lo sec me this morning, lie simply said il was in the best interests of the program that wc begin to look for a new coach," Bay said. "But he said he was not going lo resign because he did not like the word 'resign' because of the connotation relating lo quilting. I told, him I was not going to fire him because 1 did not like the word 'fire.' ... So the compromise essentially was . . . that wc move ahead al the end of the season." Contacted after his team's practice yesterday, Miller refused to comment. Miller told his team of the decision before yesterday's workout. Ohio Slate is 109 this season, and Miller has been under increasing public pressure during a recent tail-spin. The Buckeyes have lost five of their last six games and eight of their last 12, including a 7065 loss Thursday against a Minnesota team decimated by the loss of three players charged with sexual assault and two others suspended from the team.
