Twenty-two horse tracks, including Pimlico and Laurel Park, announced their intention yesterday to withdraw from the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, the sport's so-called league office. The 12 mid-Atlantic tracks and the seven owned by Frank Stronach's Magna Entertainment Corp., including Gulfstream Park and Santa Anita Park, joined the mass defection. Formed nearly three years ago to unify the sport and increase its popularity, the NTRA has a membership that extends beyond racetracks and includes owners, breeders, sales companies and others.

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.

The beauty of traveling along the Triple Crown trail is that its secrets are revealed one by one.Last weekend, most of the top 3-year-olds in Florida popped out of the shadows for the Fountain of Youth Stakes at Gulfstream Park. Today, a few other Kentucky Derby contenders make cameo appearances in allowance races at the South Florida track.And tomorrow, two of the top contenders in California, including one highly touted filly, compete in the San Rafael Stakes at Santa Anita Park. The performance of the filly, Honest Lady, will begin answering the question: Just how good are these fillies who keep running faster than the males?

A full brother of ill-fated 2006 Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro finished second in a race at Gulfstream Park in his second start of the year. Lentenor finished a half-length behind winner Doubles Partner in Wednesday's 1 1/8-mile race on the turf course at the Hallandale Beach, Fla., track. The race drew a field of 11 3-year-olds. Like Barbaro, who broke down in the Preakness, the 3-year-old Lentenor is owned by Gretchen and Roy Jackson and trained by Michael Matz . Matz had said that a strong performance in Wednesday's race could put Lentenor in position to run next month in the Florida Derby, a Kentucky Derby prep.

The majority owner of Maryland's two thoroughbred tracks has agreed to a deal that would transfer all of its racing assets, including Laurel Park and Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, to its chairman and chief executive Frank Stronach. In exchange, Stronach will give up control of Ontario-based MI Developments, according to the agreement announced late Monday. Stronach currently controls 57 percent of the real estate company's voting power. The restructuring means the racing operations would become a separate entity with assets including Santa Anita Park and Golden Gate Fields, both in California; Gulfstream Park in Florida and horse racing technology firm AmTote International, the Hunt Valley-based electronic bet-processing company.

HALLANDALE, Fla. -- The 10 horses in the $200,000 Fountain of Youth Stakes today at Gulfstream Park illustrate the problem. The field is so competitive that identifying the favorite might be as difficult as selecting the winner.And this is just one race in February. How can anybody be expected to pick the winner of the Kentucky Derby now -- 10 weeks before the race May 1 at Churchill Downs?The answer: Nobody can be expected to do it.That is presumably why one bettor Thursday at Lone Star Park in Texas put down $10,000 on "the field" in the inaugural Kentucky Derby Future Wager.
