Turf Paradise: Camacho wins in wire job


Camacho, ridden by Glen Corbett, went immediately to the lead and was never headed, winning the $50,000 Paradise Mile Handicap by 1 3/4 lengths. Camacho ran the mile on turf in 1:36.57 and paid $12.60.

R. Baggio, the 8-5 favorite, finished second by a head but was placed third for interfering with third-place finisher Milk Wood entering the stretch.
