HAVILAND, Kan. -- Steve Arnold is driving the yellow Hummer in circles around a Kiowa County wheat field, towing an 18-foot-wide metal detector. For an hour, nothing but silence. Finally, the detector whines, and Arnold slams the brakes. "That is so good," he says. Arnold jumps out, pinpoints the location with a smaller detector and starts digging. The renowned meteorite hunter is hoping for a big score. He has had three false hits today, unearthing a bit of barbed wire, a fragment of a plow, a squashed Dr Pepper can. "What's the definition of insanity?"

Yesterday's feature race at Pimlico wasn't a stakes race, but it was chock full of stakes-caliber horses. Five-year-old Crafty Guy, who was once a promising juvenile, recaptured the spirit of his youth with a gate-to-wire victory in the $38,000 optional/allowance. Apprentice jockey Eric Camacho bolted to the lead with the chestnut son of Crafty Prospector, kept him focused on business down the backstretch and then turned back several crack sprinters to secure the win. Crafty Guy completed the six furlongs in 1 minute, 11.22 seconds and beat Cherokee's Boy by just a neck.

LAUREL -- The offspring of Mr. Prospector have long been noted for speed and precocity. So when Manlove triumphed in the Congressional Handicap yesterday at Laurel Race Course, it was with a style seldom associated with his superstar sire.The 4-year-old colt came from so far back that announcer Dave Rodman briefly lost sight of him in the early stages of the 1 1/4 -mile Congressional. But at the finish, Manlove was keenly in focus. He swept past his eight rivals to win by nearly two lengths over Valley Crossing, with Midas another three lengths back.

Reluctantly, but knowing he had to do what was right, Claiborne Farm owner Seth Hancock ordered the death of Mr. Prospector, one of America's greatest thoroughbred sires."It was old age, pure and simple," Claiborne assistant farm manager Gus Koch said yesterday from Lexington, Ky. "He had a long life and he just wore out."

JAMESTOWN, Calif. -- For John Evans, who makes most of his living putting up drywall not far from this old mining outpost in the Sierra foothills, the secret of finding gold lies in seizing nature's fleeting clues.After 20 years of trying, Evans has yet to hit the mother lode. But he and hundreds of other weekend prospectors say the record rains that fell on California in the winter may provide them with the clues of a lifetime.He has been joined by serious miners and first-timers who are flocking to the rivers and streams of this area, about 100 miles east of San Francisco, on the theory that erosion may have revealed rich deposits.

ONE OF THE largest providers of home mortgage money in the country is about to deploy a new, high-tech early warning tool designed to keep thousands of borrowers who have fallen behind on loan repayments out of foreclosure.Freddie Mac, the congressionally chartered owner of approximately 7 million home mortgages, has developed an electronic system that spots borrowers who are statistically most likely to end up in foreclosure.Analyzing 70 to 80 "borrower characteristics" from each loan file, the system flags high-risk consumers very early in the default cycle -- as little as 16 days after the homeowner misses a mortgage payment.

The 20-1 Wallenda crossed under the wire a short nose in front of John Franks' Saintly Prospector, who had a head on heavily favored Canadian Triple Crown winner Peteski. Then it was another head back to fourth-place Kissin Kris, also owned by Franks.
