The Arlington Million at Arlington Park today features Grade I turf winners from around the world. But the owners and trainer of a hard-trying horse from Maryland hope to upset one of the toughest field of turf runners assembled in this country in years. Mr O'Brien, a Pimlico-based, Irish-bred gelding with Howard County owners, will break from the inside in a 13-horse field that showcases six Group I or Grade I winners from the United States, Canada, Great Britain and Germany. Mr O'Brien and another Maryland-based horse, Kicken Kris, stabled at Fair Hill, are 8-1 in the morning line for the race northwest of Chicago.

ARCADIA, Calif. - This being California and this being the Breeders' Cup, it's appropriate that stars are prominent. And the most prominent star in this Hollywood racing firmament is a jockey. Gary Stevens, a Hall of Fame jockey, played the role of George Woolf, a steely old-time rider, in the movie Seabiscuit. In that world, Stevens the actor proved a natural on the big screen with his booming confidence, keen intelligence and movie-star looks. In the real world, Stevens the jockey thought he was going to die two months ago in a freakish spill at Arlington Park.

In his stakes debut, he again won impressively, cruising to a three-length victory under Julie Krone in the $119,600 Red Smith Handicap. It appears that this horse is going to be a major factor in the turf division.

McKEE CITY, N.J. -- The climb of Ops Smile up the ladder of top turf horses slipped a few rungs yesterday in the $400,000 Caesars International Handicap at Atlantic City Race Course.Maryland-bred, -trained and -owned, Ops Smile finished last in a field of four in the 1 3/16-mile turf race that highlighted opening day at this summer track 13 miles west of Atlantic City. His chances were compromised by the small field and lack of early speed. Ops Smile needs a quick pace up front to set up his potent late charge.
