WAITSBURG - Cautious bettors who stick to place and show tickets could have struck it rich Sunday at the Waitsburg Days of Real Sport pari-mutuel horses races.

If, that is, they handicapped Handsome Lover to run second in the day's sixth race, a field of eight Thoroughbreds leaving the gates in a 6 1/2-furlong $2,500 claiming race.

Handsome Lover, with J. Luis Torres in the irons, followed Timely Brush to the finish line and returned a whopping $100.40 on a $2 place risk and $32.60 to show.

Timely Brush, with Hugo Herrera up, paid $9 to win, $5.40 to place and $5.80 to show. Nikeela Black rode Millers Charm to third and returned $5.80 on a show wager.

Obviously, it was a rewarding race for the smart exotic bettors as well.

Timely Brush and Handsome Lover paid $200.60 on the exacta and $205.40 on the quinella. And those smart enough to include Millers Charm in a trifecta ticket took home $1,412.40.

Nothing else came close to the sixth race Sunday in terms of pari-mutuel return as bettors pushed a modest $26,715 through the windows on a 10-race card. By comparison, Saturday's handle for eight races was $29,195.

The meet's total handle amounted to $55,910.

Black rode Kimz Hucklebery to first place in the Quarter Horse Futurity at 300 yards and Connie Doll was aboard Gassan Royal in a victory run in the Thoroughbred Queen's Derby at a mile and a sixth.

For Doll, it was her third victory of the day and her seventh of the two-day meet, tops among jockies.

Black rode three winners Sunday after being shut out on Saturday. Torres, Herrera and Joe Crispin turned in one winning ride each day.
