WALLA WALLA - Easily A Smash Hit was all of that and more Sunday during the first running of the Dick Monahan Memorial Quarter Horse Allowance at the Walla Walla Fairgrounds.

The Mark Kaylor-trained Quarter Horse won the 250-yard dash with Ruben Camacho in the irons and paid all around as the two-day Walla Walla Spring Meet concluded with a 10-race card.

Easily A Smash Hit paid $14.60 to win, $8.80 to place and $3.20 to show. With Trash In The Air running second, the quinella wager returned $68.80 and an exacta risk was good for $145.20. And for those smart enough to put Eyes Okey third in a trifecta wager, the payoff was a day-best $302.40.

In Sunday's other featured race, the Queen's Derby for Thoroughbreds at a mile and an eighth, Connie Doll pushed Gassan Royal to the finish line first for a modest return of $6.60 to win, $3.60 to place and $2.40 to show.

All told, pari-mutuel wagerers pushed $34,409 through the windows Sunday, boosting the two-day total to $70,951.

Saturday's wager of $36,542 was highlighted by the last race of the day when a $2 trifecta wager on a 5-furlong Thoroughbred Claiming race returned a whopping $2,254.60.

Les Crime, with Hugo Herrera up, won the race and returned $17 to win, $8.40 to place and $3.80 to show. But the big surprise was Hollywood Brass, ridden by Ruben Camacho, who paid $40.40 for a $2 place ticket and &7.80 to show. Easter Sonny, the favorite, ran third and returned $3 to show.

The quinella returned $125.40 and the exacta $104.20.

Herrera rode three winners on Sunday, giving him four firsts for the two-day meet. Nikeela Black also rode four winners on the weekend, doing it just the opposite with three firsts during Saturday's nine-race card and just one win Sunday.

Terrance Birdrattler and Connie Doll produced three winners each for the weekend and Ashley Zacherle and Freddy Ibarra each won a pair of races.
