Below is Klaus's suggestion to my problem, with a few minor alts. Thanks Jim for your help too, I guess the saying "there's more than one way to skin a cat" is true.

on mouseUp
  put clipboardData into tTitle
  put wordOffset("Prize", tTitle) into prizeoffset
  put word 1 to (prizeoffset-1) of tTitle into fld "Race title:"
