HALLANDALE, Fla. -- This time last year the sporting world knew nothing of Charismatic. He was an obscure former claimer out of favor in the high-profile barn of D. Wayne Lukas. As sports fans now know, Charismatic won the Kentucky Derby at odds of 31-1 and then the Preakness at 8-1. He lost the Triple Crown after breaking a leg in the Belmont. He survived, retired and was voted 1999 Horse of the Year. So, go ahead: Pick the winner of Kentucky Derby 2000 on this blissful Florida morning.

She fell in love with ballet as a child, as many young girls do, and Susan Savage didn't lack for promise. She learned her first plies and pirouettes at a feeder school for the Royal Academy of Dance in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. But when she turned 13, her family pulled up roots and moved to West Texas, a part of the world known more for football than for fouettes en tournant (spins with a sideway kick). "Not exactly a hotbed for my life's passion," she says. Fifty years later, Savage got a chance to return to the pastime she never got out of her system.

If racing to the Kentucky Derby is like progressing through school, Coronado's Quest graduated to the next grade yesterday in the $200,000 Fountain of Youth Stakes at Gulfstream Park.Owned by Stuart S. Janney III, the colt behaved reasonably well before the race and performed reasonably well during the 1 1/16-mile race. He didn't win. Lil's Lad did. But he finished second, and that brought smiles to Janney and Shug McGaughey, the trainer."I was very pleased," said Janney, who lives in Butler in Baltimore County.

HALLANDALE, Fla. -- The first major confrontation leading to the Kentucky Derby and Preakness took shape yesterday when trainers entered 11 promising 3-year-olds in the Fountain of Youth Stakes tomorrow at Gulfstream Park. The stakes isn't the first of the year for 3-year-olds, but it's the first that showcases so many contenders for Triple Crown races. History will determine the Fountain of Youth's place in the defining picture of the spring classics. But history already reveals that its place is significant.

In the next race, A P Valentine, an even more highly regarded colt owned by Rick Pitino, former basketball coach of the Kentucky Wildcats and Boston Celtics, finished third in a stakes-quality allowance race. The two colts and their high-profile owners highlighted what many regard as the first significant stop on the road to the Kentucky Derby.

HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. -- Scat Daddy sat comfortably off Adore the Gold's hip in third place for most of yesterday's Grade I, $1 million Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park. But when jockey Edgar Prado gave him the sign to go, the sleek, dark brown colt moved smoothly into overdrive, pulling away for a 1 1/4 -length victory over the closing Notional. Trainer Todd Pletcher - in Dubai, where he had five horses running - watched Scat Daddy with confident eyes on a fuzzy television with delayed audio.

It was only a few weeks ago that Johns Hopkins freshman midfielder Michael Kimmel sat in his dorm room with roommate and fellow rookie Steven Boyle, dreaming about the possibilities that seem so modest now. "I remember us talking before the season about how it would be really cool to get in a game every once in a while, maybe if we have a big lead," Kimmel said. "If we were lucky, maybe one of us would score a goal or have an assist." Four games into the season, the freshman duo that Blue Jays coach Dave Pietramala has dubbed "Jekyll and Hyde" is way ahead of schedule.

When soy burst onto the Western food scene in the early 1990s, the possibilities for the bean seemed boundless. The protein-packed legume had potential to prevent breast cancer, increase bone mass and alleviate hot flashes. It seemed to lower cholesterol, and thus to help prevent heart disease. Millions of dollars were poured into research, and technologists plopped soy into every food imaginable. They ground it into burgers, hot dogs and sausages. Tofurky was born. They processed it into cheese, milk and ice cream.

Two years ago, Richard Casey was feeling his age. At 48, he was tired, gaining weight and suffering from a growing number of aches and pains. On top of that, his libido had decreased. "I could see the distance between my 40s and my 20s," he says. "As I looked ahead, it was all downhill. That's depressing." Looking for relief, he found a Chicago doctor named Paul Savage, who focuses on adjusting hormone levels in older patients. Savage modified Casey's diet and workout, and prescribed several hormones, including human growth hormone.

MIAMI -- The working title of Elsie Rose's next book was "Everyone Must Have A Dream." Then she and her husband Harold, an 88-year-old trainer of thoroughbreds, found one. His name is Hal's Hope, a leading contender in the $200,000 Fountain of Youth Stakes, a high-caliber race for prospective Triple Crown horses Saturday at Gulfstream Park. Harold J. Rose bred, nurtured, developed and trains Hal's Hope. He even named the 3-year-old colt after himself. "Hal's Hope," Rose said yesterday at his barn at Calder Race Course near Gulfstream.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. -- Why do we do the things we do? Why do you do what you do, and why do I do what I do? I love these types of questions. That's how you get to the core of a person, deciphering the motive. The successful ones, it seems, have found something they like doing. Their passion is their work. But there's a whole class above them, men and women who find unprecedented success. They seem to be motivated by something very different - fear. Here in South Florida, Penn State is preparing to take on Florida State in tomorrow night's Orange Bowl.

HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. - With the top three contenders nursing injuries or illness, the Florida Derby appeared likely to attract a mere handful of horses. But yesterday, after two of the big three dropped out, the field swelled to nine as trainers looked to take advantage of the dearth of established talent in one of the marquee races leading to the Kentucky Derby. The $1 million Florida Derby will take place Saturday at Gulfstream Park here in South Florida. Nick Zito, who trains the top two entrants, said he understands the rush to the entry box. "I don't blame those guys for being in there," Zito said.
