Moments after winning the $60,000 Conniver Stakes with recent acquisition Brush Over, trainer Dale Capuano rushed from the winner's circle to the paddock.Capuano's haste wasn't because he had a horse entered in Laurel Park's final race; it was because he wanted to look at the nine readying for the finale."On to the next one," said Capuano. "It's what I do."Similar attention in the paddock prompted him to claim Brush Over about four months ago for $25,000. Since entering Capuano's barn for owner Donald H. Mensh, Brush Over has won five of six races.

The Sun's contention that Gov. Martin O'Malley's "embarrassing and silly attempt to put a positive spin on lackluster job reports" is not indicative, as former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. contends, of the "administrations failure to foster job growth" is correct ("Ehrlich on the attack," Sept. 28). I am sure that Governor O'Malley has done everything in his power to foster job growth, especially in this election year. Unfortunately, one of the best ways to foster job growth in Maryland is to promote and retain businesses in Maryland, at which Governor O'Malley has been a dismal failure.
