Sports in Brief Garden C.ity Telepriim Saturday. Miivemb«T 2C>. \<)~7 By The Associated Press SOCCER TEHRAN, Iran — Forward Gafour Jehani scored in the 44th minute of play to give Trainer To Sue Race Group NEW YORK (AP) — Belmont race track trainer Jack B. Morgan said he would file a $125,000 suit today against the New York Racing Association and its acting president, James Heffernan. The suit, seeking $25,000 in compensatory damages and $100,000 punitive damages, alleges that "the NYRA willfully denied Morgan access lo the stable area although at the time it did this he was duly licensed by the (state) Racing and Wagering Board ..." "When the attorney general and the racing board lifted their bar against Morgan," Morgan's lawyers said, "the NYRA continued it, claiming il was a private organization." The NYRA, under court orders, has lifted its suspension of Morgan. Morgan's attorney said the trainer would go to the racetrack today to see whether Lebon, one of the horses involved in a switch and subsequent huge betting payoff — the other was Cinzano — was the same horse he saw win the race on Sept. 23, paying odds of 57-1. This action comes just a day after Ihe return to Belmont of Dr. Mark Gerard, the veterinarian accused in the horse switch scandal. Dr. Gerard is accused of switching the two Uruguayan thoroughbreds, the stakes- winning Cinzano for the look- alike Lebon, a lesser horse. Cinzano was a horse imported by Gerard and Lebon was owned by Morgan. When the horse supposed to be Lebon won, it reportedly resulted in a $78,000 belling payoff for the veterinarian. Gerard had reported that Cinzano, purchased from him by Joseph Taub and insured for $150,000, suffered a head injury at Gerard's Mut- . tontown, N.Y., farm and was deslroyed lasl June 12. The insurance money, he said, was paid lo Taub. Evans' 31 Keys Cats In Opener MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — A late-game barage by a veteran and a newcomer pulled Kansas State from the reaches of defeat in the season-opener as the defending Big Eight champions downed Northern Illinois, 7674. The veteran Mike Evans erupted for 23 second-half points and a freshman from Brooklyn, Rolando Blackman, added 11 more to carry the Wildcats through the nip-and- tuck second half. Together, the pair scored all but two of the team's 36 second-half points. For Evans, the high-scoring senior guard, the game total of 31 points was to be expected. But for Blackman, who came off the bench for another Brooklyn native, Curtis Redding, who slipped into foul trouble, it was a pleasant shock. "I was very happy with my performance," said the 6-foot- 6 forward who managed 15 tolal points and eight rebounds. "It gave me a lot of confidence. I know I can perform when the game is on the line, when we're under pressure." While Blackman's play pleased Coach Jack Hartman, the Huskies shooting performance against the Wildcat zone defense came as a shock. "With Northern Illinois shooting the way they were shooting, it was no surprise that it was the type of ballgame it was. If they keep shooting like they did tonight they are going to win a lot of basketball games." Huskies Coach John McDougal said it was the newcomers to his offense that surprised the 'Cats. "Last year we had no peripheral offense, and therefore a zone defense gave us trouble," McDougal said. "That is what we reckoned with when we did our recruitng last year."
