ARCADIA, Calif. - Azeri, reigning Horse of the Year, will not compete in the Breeders' Cup Distaff on Saturday at Santa Anita Park and may be retired. The trainer, Laura de Seroux, had expressed concern about the 5-year-old mare after she refused to budge Friday morning after walking onto the track at San Luis Rey Downs, her training base in California. She later breezed six furlongs in a sizzling 1 minute, 10 1/5 seconds. "She walked this morning and is fine, but in my opinion, she should be retired," de Seroux said yesterday.

Six weeks ago when Social Retiree ran in the 1 1/2 -mile Riggs Handicap at Pimlico, he led at the eighth pole, then tired down the lane and finished sixth.Yesterday, in the $75,000 Fort McHenry Handicap at Laurel, the 6-year-old gelding had plenty of energy left at the finish.With jockey Walter Guerra rating him just off a blistering pace, Social Retiree overtook Square Cut to win by 1 1/2 lengths in 1 minute, 58 4/5 seconds, track record time for 1 1/4 miles over the turf course.The clocking eclipsed by three-fifths of a second the record time run by Storm On The Loose in 1986.

ELMONT, N.Y. - Barclay Tagg never stopped working through the Triple Crown. He wouldn't meet with reporters until 10:30 each morning, explaining that he had other horses besides Funny Cide to train, that he couldn't take time from them just because Funny Cide was going for the Triple Crown. Yesterday, with the Triple Crown trek over, Tagg spent his morning at Belmont Park's Barn 6 as usual - working. He couldn't understand how reporters could have any more questions for him, and he showed little tolerance for them.

Nothing has gone according to script in this Triple Crown season of 2003. From the best horses falling by the wayside to the surprise arrival yesterday of Funny Cide at Pimlico Race Course, the Kentucky Derby and its aftermath have been part fantasy and part science fiction. Will the Preakness today bring a return to normality? And what, exactly, after such bizarre goings on, would normality be? Funny Cide, surprise winner of the Kentucky Derby, arrived like a stealth fighter at about 1:45 p.m. on the Pimlico backside - the quiet section on the east side of the track, far from the hubbub of the stakes barn.

Funny Cide won't make the trip from New York to run today in the Pimlico Special. Barclay Tagg, his trainer, made the decision late yesterday afternoon after conferring with Jack Knowlton, managing partner of Sackatoga Stable, which owns Funny Cide. Winner of last year's Kentucky Derby and Preakness, Funny Cide has a respiratory condition that worsens in hot, humid weather, Tagg said. He said earlier this week that he wouldn't run Funny Cide in the Special if it was too hot. "Nobody wanted to run him more than I did," said Tagg, who trained in Maryland for three decades before relocating to New York.
