Jimmy Stone is not averse to cashing a bet. In 1984 at Del Mar, Stone and Ed Friendly raced a 2-year-old named Edjim in partnership, and with a two-day pick-six carry-over, they singled their winning colt with five others that won and collected something like $106,000. "You would have thought somebody had given Jimmy another oil well," Friendly said. Stone, a Louisiana oil driller, still has the picture of Edjim's victory at Del Mar. It hangs on one of his bathroom walls in New Orleans.

John Manuel and Jimmy Stone scored on a fielder's choice by Jon Horwitz in the ninth inning to give Glendale College an 8-7 victory over Moorpark in a Western State Conference interdivisional baseball game on Thursday at Moorpark. Horwitz, who beat the throw for what would have been an inning-ending double play at first base, had three hits and scored a run to help Glendale (20-3, 11-2 in conference play) win its sixth consecutive game.

Rio Mesa High used superior depth in field events to defeat host Hueneme, 73-54, in a Pacific View League boys' track and field opener on Thursday.

Junior Chris Davis won the shotput in 46-4 and the discus in 138-2 for Rio Mesa (3-0).

The teams combined for eight home runs, three doubles and a triple, so it figured somebody would clobber one over the fence to decide the see-saw baseball battle between Citrus and Glendale colleges Thursday at Stengel Field. Not exactly. It took a chopper through a drawn-in infield by designated hitter Tom Rochin in the bottom of the eighth inning to score two runs and give Glendale a 13-12 victory in a 3 1/2-hour Western State Conference Southern Division game.

Good omens, bad omens, Arthur B. Hancock III has a million of them. Sunday Silence, according to Hancock, might not have swept the 1989 Triple Crown because the colt's owner saw only two moths, not three, on a top-floor window at the World Trade Center in New York the night before the Belmont Stakes. Sunday Silence, Hancock suggests, might have won the Kentucky Derby that year because he found a penny--minted in 1982--on the backstretch at Churchill Downs a couple of days before the race.

Signs, signs, everywhere signs. Even before the baseball season started, back during fall and winter league games, Glendale College was sending clear messages about its potential. "Once I saw the team, I knew we were going to be good," shortstop Jimmy Stone said. "We barely lost any games in the fall." The Vaqueros have barely lost any games this season.

The electricity in today's amateur baseball draft will come from a plentiful supply of power pitchers, most from the high school ranks. As for local talent, the draft is battery-powered, as in the most highly regarded pitcher-catcher combination in 20 years. Tyler Adamczyk and Mike Nickeas of Westlake High will probably be the first two high school players taken from the region. Not since Jeff Wetherby and Phil Lombardi of Kennedy in 1981 has a local battery possessed as much pro potential.

The obsession to win a Kentucky Derby routinely produces horsemen with greenbacks in hand, but the race before the race--the search to buy a Derby contender--has been especially lively and pricey this time around. To the saw that money is no object can be added the dictum that money has no meaning. It wasn't enough that Sheik Mohammed, the crown prince of Dubai, spent almost $10 million to buy two American horses for an all-out attack on the Derby.
