Retired from his 31-year job near Toronto on an assembly line, Littlemore learned long ago how to bide his time. He did it successfully at Treasure Island, even as much of his big lead withered away until he hit a winner in the last race to clinch the $800,000 first prize in the $2.97 million National Horseplayers Championship.
