* Earth Power ($4.40), racing beyond 4 1/2 furlongs for the first time in his eighth career start, romped to a 9 1/2-length victory in the $41,250 Potomac Handicap, a seven-furlong race for West Virginia-breds at Charles Town.

* With Perry Compton aboard, Getaway Holme ($3.40) pressed a slow early pace and assumed command into the stretch to capture the $30,450 Dowd Mile Handicap at Fonner Park.

A race earlier, Compton guided Burning Memories ($5.20) to a repeat victory in the $16,075 Runza Handicap at six furlongs.
