For Coronado's Quest, the pendulum may be swinging toward the Preakness.Even though his trainer, Shug McGaughey, and owner, Stuart S. Janney III, said yesterday they still haven't decided whether to run the colt Saturday in the second leg of the Triple Crown, signs are pointing Pimlico's way.One, McGaughey worked the colt six furlongs in the slop Friday at Belmont Park. What could that have been except a Preakness work?Two, while McGaughey was at Pimlico yesterday to saddle Draw for the Pimlico Special, he checked the lay of the land, perhaps considering saddling options for Coronado's Quest.

Concluding a career of searing disappointment and spectacular success, Coronado's Quest will run his final eight furlongs today in the $300,000 Cigar Mile at Aqueduct in New York.Named after the two-time Horse of the Year, the Cigar Mile will provide the stage for the last appeal of Coronado's Quest for this year's Eclipse Award as outstanding 3-year-old male. The voting will take place at year's end."I'm not going to get into analyzing that until after the race," said Stuart S. Janney III, a resident of Butler and majority owner of the flashy colt.

NEW YORK -- In the final race of an ofttimes brilliant career, Coronado's Quest finished fourth yesterday in the Cigar Mile at Aqueduct.The lackluster performance as the 4-5 favorite likely eliminated the chestnut colt from serious consideration for the Eclipse Award as outstanding 3-year-old male.Sir Bear, an unheralded 5-year-old gelding, wore down the leaders in the stretch and captured the Grade I, $300,000 stakes by a half length over Affirmed Success. Distorted Humor claimed third.Based at Calder Race Course in southern Florida, Sir Bear paid $19 to win. The exacta returned $80.50 and the trifecta $700.

"We're going in the Preakness."With those words, trainer Shug McGaughey ended days of speculation about whether Coronado's Quest would race in the state of his owner against the best 3-year-olds in the land.Speaking yesterday from his barn at Belmont Park, McGaughey said: "After a lot of days thinking about this, I just thought maybe it's the best place to go. His deportment's been great. I think and hope it will be down there."I think he figures very, very big in the race. I was sort of anxious to give it a try and see what happens.

Coronado's Quest begins his march to the Kentucky Derby today in the $100,000 Hutcheson Stakes at Gulfstream Park.Owned by Stuart S. Janney III, a resident of Butler in Baltimore County, the chestnut colt makes his 3-year-old debut in a race tarnished by the late defection of Lil's Lad. The fifth-ranked Kentucky Derby contender according to the Daily Racing Form, Lil's Lad will run instead in an allowance race today at Gulfstream Park.(Lil's Lad's race and the Hutcheson will be shown on ESPN in a broadcast beginning at 4: 30 p.m.)

Coronado's Quest perches atop "Derby Dozen" as precariously as a tufted titmouse clings to a pine tree during a hurricane.And the Forty Niner colt owned by Stuart S. Janney III and trained by Shug McGaughey will probably remain there, barring a training setback, until the Florida Derby on March 14 at Gulfstream Park. But then, Coronado's Quest must flash Kentucky Derby promise -- or fall by the waste-side as many of those wonderfully bred, high-priced, faltering 3-year-olds trained by D. Wayne Lukas.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The day was the richest in the history of horse racing. The race was supposed to be the greatest ever run.But when yesterday's race was over and darkness draped Churchill Downs, the day lay in tatters at the muddy feet of Skip Away. He had run his last. It was not nearly good enough.Awesome Again, who had run up five straight races against second-tier competition, defeated what was perhaps the strongest field ever assembled for a horse race, the $5.12 million Breeders' Cup Classic.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Coronado's Quest arrived about 6 a.m. yesterday after an all-night plane ride and van excursion from Belmont Park. The 3-year-old colt was the last of the Breeders' Cup Classic contenders to take up residence at Churchill Downs.His trainer, Shug McGaughey, said the decision to compete in the Classic was based on the fact that some 3-year-olds run the race of their lives late in the year, just as some older horses are tailing off.The perfect scenario for Coronado's Quest, he said, would be for Skip Away and Gentlemen to hook up early, and for Coronado's Quest to race at their heels, poised for one late run.Stuart S. Janney III , the Marylander who owns three-quarters of Coronado's Quest, visited the barn.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Royal Anthem, the probable favorite in the $2 million Breeders' Cup Turf, spent 20 minutes on the Churchill Downs track yesterday testing his new front shoes.He showed no sign of the lameness that threatened to knock him out of Saturday's race. Dr. Alex Harthill, a veterinarian, said the problem was a separation of the frog -- a V-shaped structure on the undersurface of the hoof -- from the rest of the hoof and not a shoe nail, as suspected."We're all smiles," Harthill said.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- "We have had a setback."With those words, the English trainer Henry Cecil sent shock waves through the Churchill Downs' backstretch yesterday. He trains Royal Anthem, the likely favorite in the $2 million Breeders' Cup Turf.The 3-year-old colt, a four-time winner in five starts, became lame in his left foreleg after Sunday's seven-furlong breeze on the turf course. The reason for his lameness was not immediately evident.But yesterday, a blacksmith removed his front shoes and replaced them with glue-ons.

OCEANPORT, N.J. -- The striking chestnut colt pranced into the paddock beneath the grand European fern leaf and American purple leaf beech trees. Like a new penny, his coat glistened in the sunlight of the Jersey shore.Eyes wide and alert, he glanced at a woman in a black dress outside the fence. He snapped his head back and looked straight ahead toward the oak saddling stall, into which he stepped willingly, stood quietly and after a few minutes exited peaceably.This was Coronado's Quest, the transformed version -- at least that's what the colt's trainer Shug McGaughey and owner Stuart S. Janney III hope.
