In a prep for the $120,000 Cane Futurity, Castleton Farm's RACE TIME ($3.60) paced a mile in 2:01[1/5] for Stanley Dancer to win a $10,000 invitational at Yonkers. Cold Front was second and the Jug winner. Vicar Hanover, closed well to be third.
At Harrisburg, Pa. the offspring of Adios, as usual, topped the annual Standardbred sales. A colt, EFFRAT HANOVER, brought $65,000 on the bid of Cleo Young of Timmonsville, S.C., and BON-JOUR HANOVER, a full sister to the champion pacer, Bret Hanover, was purchased for $50,000 by Stanley Dancer.
HOCKEY—DETROIT extended its unbeaten streak to eight games by stopping the Rangers 3-1 and the Canadiens 2-1 to break a three-way tie for the lead. MONTREAL and TORONTO fell three points back in second place. They played to a 2-2 tie with each other, and then the Canadiens dropped two and the Maple Leafs one. CHICAGO climbed into a fourth-place tie with NEW YORK after a 2-1 victory over the Rangers (the Black Hawks scored their goals in a 25-sccond spurt) and a 3-1 decision over Montreal. The Rangers lost two in a row before defeating Toronto 1-0, as Jacques Plante replaced the injured Marcel Paille and recorded his 62nd NHL shutout. BOSTON won its second game of the season, a 3-2 upset of the Black Hawks.
HORSE RACING—At Garden State, Bold Ruler's game daughter, QUEEN EMPRESS ($4), was headed at the quarter pole, but fought back to take the $188,090 Gardenia by a neck for Wheatley Stable. Her rival for season's honors, Marshua, finished second.
Losers at Aqueduct might have eased the pain with Jockey John Ruane, who piloted George Widener's STEEPLE JILL ($13.30) to a 3�-length victory in the $59,100 Ladies' Handicap. Dupage Lady (88 to 1) was second, and Miss Cavandish fifth.
Jacnot Stable's unbeaten HEMPEN ($5.60), under a strong ride by Bobby Ussery, defeated Hail to All by a half length in the first division of the prep for The Garden State. In the second division Ford Stable's Royal Gunner was disqualified from first, and Mrs. Mary Hecht's SADAIR ($5), with Manuel Ycaza up, was declared the winner.
HORSE SHOW—In the National at Madison Square Garden, 16-year-old RANDI STUART of Tulsa won the Good Hands title with 20-year-old Storm Cloud. JIM KOHN, 18, of San Francisco took the hunter-seat medal and almost won the Maclay trophy as well. He finished second to 17-year-old LANE SCHULZ of Wilton, Conn., while Louisville's JULIANNE SCHMUTZ gained the championship ribbon in the saddle-scat class.
TENNIS—In the international championships in Buenos Aires, San Antonio's CHUCK McKINLEY defeated Manuel Santana in the men's singles when the Spaniard withdrew with an ankle injury. NANCY RICHEY of Dallas upset Maria Bueno 4-6, 6-2, 6-4 in the women's singles.
