A male resident of the District collected the $195,617.10 Double Triple pool yesterday when Barely A Curve, Sailor's Turn and Debby's Sister ran 1-2-3 in the fifth race at Laurel, the second part of the exotic wager.
Gunner Zeus, Scarlet Hobeau and Bashful Boy, numbers 2-11-7, respectively, were the top three finishers in the third race.
The unidentified man, who wagered $180, said he goes to the track regularly. The Double Triple had not been hit since Laurel Race Course opened 14 racing days ago . . .
Jockey Donald Miller Jr. is unhappy with a 10-day suspension he received Tuesday.
Calling it "a matter of principle," Miller said he is appealing to the Maryland Racing Commission the decision of the racing stewards, who usually hand out seven-day suspensions.
Miller was suspended after his mount, Masked Ballet, ran into another filly, Beryl Betty, in Sunday's second race at Laurel.
"A 10-day suspension" said Miller, 24, "suggests that I put another rider at risk through carelessness, a mark I do not ever want on my record." . . .
Rollodka, the 7-to-5 favorite ridden by Alberto Delgado, edged away from Duxun Limited in the final yards to win yesterday's feature race at Laurel by a half-length.
The son of Rollicking paid $4.80 after running the 1 1/16 miles over a firm turf course in 1.39 4/5 . . .
Saturday's Massachusetts Handicap at Suffolk Downs in East Boston will not be simulcast to Laurel because Massachusetts law allows for betting on incoming but not outgoing races.
The race will feature Maryland-based Broad Brush and Skip Trial, one of the nation's leading handicap performers.
