LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Jimmy Croll leaned against a wall outside Barn 41 at Churchill Downs yesterday, recalling how trainer Morris Dixon had fed Polynesian nearly a dozen ears of field corn just a few hours before the horse won the 1945 Preakness Stakes.That might be considered sort of a heavy diet these days, especially when equine athletes feast on scientifically balanced rations and are drawn like greyhounds before a race.Croll was 24 at the time, galloping a couple of sets of horses for free for "Pop" Dixon in Kennett Square, Pa. He would finish at Dixon's farm and then head off to classes in veterinary medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, which he quit after a couple of years to pursue a career training thoroughbreds.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- On a day when one of his closest clients was being buried with his racing colors in Kansas, trainer Ron McAnally's emotions rose and fell all afternoon at Hollywood Park.For the family of Frank Whitham, killed in the crash of his private plane Wednesday, McAnally was at least happy that Ibero, one of Whitham's stakes winners, was able to win yesterday's seventh race. That emotion had not yet subsided a race later when McAnally saddled Valiant Nature for the biggest upset in the history of the Hollywood Futurity.

HALLANDALE, Fla. -- This must be the season for delayed debuts on the road to the Kentucky Derby: first Dehere, the juvenile champion of last year, and now Brocco, the horse that outran him in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile.Brocco was supposed to make his first start of 1994 in the San Rafael Stakes at Santa Anita on March 6. But his trainer, Randy Winick, reports that the colt's training has been delayed by rain and by some tightness. He still could make the San Rafael, but a more likely target now is the San Felipe Stakes two weeks later.
