Horses chasing a spot in the Kentucky Derby this year must, for the first time, compile points (instead of graded earnings) by finishing in the top four in a series of races chosen by the staff at Churchill Downs. The revised qualification rules are meant to make it easier for the common fan to follow the Derby trail. So let's keep this simple: the hunt really began last week, with the first two races worth a total of 85 points (50-20-10-5). Previous races had only been worth 17 (10-4-2-1)

The annual guessing game known as "Who's going to win the Derby?" hit full stride over the weekend with no clear favorite emerging after a couple of Kentucky Derby preps in Florida and California. Over the next two months, some clear favorites likely will emerge. But there's one thing to remember: The favorite rarely wins on the first Saturday in May. Scat Daddy rallied late and beat Stormello by the smallest of margins to win the Fountain of Youth Stakes at Gulfstream Park in South Florida.

Maryland horses will be allowed to race at Aqueduct Racetrack in New York beginning March 18, according to Maryland trainers Mike Trombetta and Dale Capuano, both of whom could run horses there in major stakes races that day. Both Trombetta and Capuano said they had discussions with Dr. Anthony Verderosa, the chief examining veterinarian for the New York Racing Association, yesterday and were told they could enter their horses. Maryland horses stabled at Pimlico Race Course, Laurel Park and the Bowie Training Center have not been allowed to race outside the state since early January when the equine herpes Type 1 virus first appeared here.

Monarchos catapulted past Point Given in the Kentucky Derby rankings last weekend with a spectacular performance in the Florida Derby. Today, Point Given will try to keep pace in California. If Point Given dominates the San Felipe Stakes at Santa Anita Park as emphatically as Monarchos dominated the Florida Derby, the battle for supremacy on the road to the Kentucky Derby will turn into a battle of East vs. West. For Point Given, runner-up in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile, the San Felipe marks his 2001 debut.

NEW YORK -- Keyed Entry returned from his morning workout at Belmont Park yesterday morning fit and apparently enjoying the cool air and warm sunshine washing over his dark bay coat. Once in his stall, he ate and acknowledged visitors by letting them pet his nose and rub his chin. The atmosphere surrounding the fact that he would be saddling up today at Aqueduct Race Track as the early-line second favorite, taking on 10 other horses in the Gotham Stakes - a Grade III, $200,000 prep race for the Kentucky Derby - seemed not to bother the precocious 3-year-old.

Mike Luzzi blurted out the whole story after dismounting Don Six in the $200,000 General George Handicap yesterday at Laurel Park: "That was a good horse race." Indeed it was. Don Six, perhaps the fastest six-furlong horse in the country, led every stride of the seven-furlong race - except the last one. Saratoga County, who never lost sight of Don Six despite trailing by five lengths, prevailed by a nose in a thrilling finish. Scott Lake, trainer of Don Six, joined his jockey in celebration of the race as a sporting spectacle.
