For Pat Day, his first winning trip in the Washington D.C. International yesterday was pure paradise.Riding with extreme confidence and never picking up his stick, the Midwest jockey, who turned 41 two days ago, let Horse of the Year candidate Paradise Creek gallop along off the pace for the first mile in the 1 1/4 -mile grass classic at Laurel Park.Then, in a seemingly effortless move in the stretch, the 5-year-old horse extended his stride and drew off to a 5 1/2 -length win over Redcall, the pace-setting Maryland-bred whose owner,C.

The latest turf duel between Lure and Paradise Creek was on the marquee for the $150,000 Early Times Dixie Stakes at Pimlico Race Course yesterday, but a late scratch commanded all the attention.When local trainer Dick Small pulled Dancing Douglas from the race several hours before post time, leaving a five-horse field, it meant that the $1 million bonus awarded to the horse with the highest point total in the three-race Early Times series had been negated.According to the rules, the bonus is awarded only if the three races draw at least six entries.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Pat Day was scurrying to the jockeys' quarters after riding his third winner on the day's card at Churchill Downs.It was the day before the Breeders' Cup and the competition was nondescript, but the results spoke for themselves.Day dominated the action at Churchill Downs, just as he does most days at what Kentuckians refer to as "The Big Oval."Breeders' Cup XI shouldn't be any different.In the past decade, Day has won 20 riding titles at Churchill Downs. He definitely has the home-court advantage today when the stakes are much higher on the $10 million championship card.

David Smaga will be trying to upset North America's best grass horse, Paradise Creek, tomorrow with an ex-French steeplechaser in the Washington D.C. International.Paradise Creek is such a prohibitive favorite that when the nine-horse field was drawn yesterday at Laurel Race Course, track oddsmaker Clem Florio made him the 2-5 favorite, the kind of price reserved for a champion.Even Smaga is realistic about the International's probable outcome."Second chance," is how he summed up the shot of his 7-year-old horse, Marildo.

Zoman, who upset favored Sillery in the 1992 Washington D.C. International, might be a surprise entry in Saturday's 43rd renewal of the Grade I turf stakes.Seven horses have been pre-entered for the $600,000 race -- Paradise Creek, Binary Light, Turk Passer, Maryland Moon and Astudillo from the United States, Beneficial from England and Marildo from France.But Laurel management reserves the right to invite two horses to the race. Over the weekend, the track issued an invitation to Prince Fahd Salman, the owner of Zoman, and is considering issuing another invitation to Howard County horseman C. Oliver Goldsmith for his horse, Redcall, winner of the recent Damascus Handicap at Pimlico.

Bill Mott is giving Maryland a second chance.Had Paradise Creek been awarded a $1 million bonus for sweeping the Early Times Turf Triple this spring, today's odds-on favorite to win the Washington D.C. International at Laurel Park easily would have been the richest thoroughbred in training at this point of 1994, having earned about $200,000 more than Holy Bull, current leader with $2,095,000 in winnings.And Mott, his trainer, would be $1 million ahead of national leader D. Wayne Lukas in winning purses instead of trailing him in second place by about $70,000.

Seven horses that are either stabled in Maryland or have made their last starts in some of the state's big races are scheduled to run in Breeders' Cup XI on Nov. 5 at Churchill Downs.The latest horse added to the list is Laurel Dash winner Soviet Problem. The filly was not nominated to the Breeders' Cup program as a foal by her California owners, John Harris and Don Valpredo. That means they will have to supplement her at a cost of $120,000 to start in the $1 million Breeders' Cup Sprint.

A half mile through the Gallorette Handicap yesterday, Mystic Dance was holding a 15-length lead and looking like a horse who would steal the 43rd running of the $100,000 stakes at Pimlico.But the pacesetter tired and the remainder of the six-horse field bypassed her completely with Tribulation rallying strongest to prevail by two lengths over Mckaymackenna.Tribulation, ridden by Jean-Luc Samyn, drew clear under a hand ride to finish in 1 minute, 41 3/5 seconds, equaling La Reine Elaine's 1985 stakes record for 1 1/16 miles on the grass.
