Even-money favorite Paynter, who took second in last month's Belmont Stakes, ran away down the stretch to win Sunday's $1 million Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park in Oceanport, N.J. The victory, in 1 minute, 48.87 seconds, is the third in a row for Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert and sixth overall in the 1 1/8-mile, Grade I stakes. Ridden by Rafael Bejarano for the first time, Paynter stumbled at the start and was forced to follow 2-1 second pick Gemologist around the first turn and into the backstretch before taking the lead around the final turn for a 3 3/4-length win over Nonios, followed by Stealcase, Handsome Mike, Dullahan and Gemologist.

OCEANPORT, N.J. -- Before the Preakness Stakes, trainer Elliott Walden said he didn't want to run Victory Gallop, who had finished second in the Kentucky Derby, against Coronado's Quest.In fact, the day that trainer Shug McGaughey declared that Coronado's Quest would run, Walden responded by saying that Victory Gallop would not. Only after top contenders Indian Charlie and Halory Hunter dropped out -- and Victory Gallop flashed a readiness to race -- did Walden enter the bay colt.But then, the day before the Preakness, Coronado's Quest bruised a foot and was scratched.

While Gone With the Wind is not his favorite film, Sun movie critic Chris Kaltenbach wrote in 1998 that Hattie McDaniel, who was the first African-American actor to win an Academy Award, "brought dignity to her Oscar-winning role as Mammy." McDaniel - who was a veteran of more than 300 films made between 1931 and her death in 1952 but received screen credit for only about 80 of them - specialized in portraying domestics. Writer Patrick Giles described McDaniel in GWTW as a "proud character, stubbornly demanding what's right even from those she's supposed to be bowing to."

OCEANPORT, N.J. - The real War Emblem returned to the track yesterday. With Medaglia d'Oro dominating the Jim Dandy Stakes three hours away at Saratoga and no legitimate speed horse around to challenge his pace, War Emblem raced away from four rivals and became the first Kentucky Derby winner to capture the $1 million Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park. On the lead from the break after an unnerving moment in the gate, War Emblem justified his 3-10 odds and covered the 1 1/8 miles in 1 minute, 48 1/5 seconds to add another prestigious victory to a 3-year-old resume that includes wins in the Illinois and Kentucky derbies, and the Preakness.

ELMONT, N.Y. - The sporting world hasn't seen the last, or maybe even the best, of Afleet Alex, says Tim Ritchey, his trainer. The morning after Afleet Alex's overpowering victory in the Belmont Stakes, Ritchey said the colt would likely race Aug. 7 in the Haskell Invitational Handicap at Monmouth Park. Afleet Alex might also compete Aug. 27 in the Travers Stakes at Saratoga, the trainer said. What's more, Ritchey said, the 3-year-old Afleet Alex would race next year, assuming he stays healthy and sound.
