Laurel-based Include may have encountered breathing problems in the Iselin Handicap on Sunday at Monmouth Park in New Jersey, trainer Bud Delp said yesterday. Delp said Include, who finished sixth as the heavy favorite, may have displaced his soft palate during the race, cutting off his air and compromising his chances. The trainer said he would monitor the situation before deciding how to treat the problem or scheduling Include's next race. "Something obviously happened; he didn't run his race," Delp said.

BENSALEM, Pa. -- Undefeated and wildly popular, Smarty Jones was the Big Brown of his day - the last horse before Big Brown to enter the Belmont Stakes with a shot at horse racing's Triple Crown. Four years later, John Servis, who trained Smarty Jones, is still attached to that chestnut colt and those fleeting weeks when Smarty was anointed racing's next star. Servis, who collects Smarty memorabilia and visits the retired horse each year, knows better than anyone that the risk of aspiring to greatness is that you might fall tantalizingly short.

Jerry Bailey said if he hadn't stopped drinking, he'd be dead, in jail or in an insane asylum. "Those are the three most likely scenarios for somebody who can't put the bottle down," he said. Bailey said he stopped drinking Jan. 15, 1989. His career improved dramatically almost immediately, and he became not only a great jockey, but one of the greatest of all time. He'll be at Pimlico today riding in the Hilltop Breeders' Cup Stakes and signing copies of his recently released autobiography, Against The Odds: Riding for My Life.

Wayne Lukas unexpectedly chose that race over the Friday's Kentucky Oaks for fillies.

The start was rough, but the finish was just right for Two Item Limit. Despite being jostled leaving the gate, the filly proved again that a mile and an eighth is just her cup of tea, drawing off yesterday in the Grade II, $200,000 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes, the female equivalent of the Preakness. Two Item Limit bested runner-up Indy Glory by two lengths with Tap Dance, the slight favorite, running third. "I know at best you're supposed to race clear, but I got in behind Tap Dance and let her carry me as long as she could," said winning jockey Richard Migliore.

The longest winning streak in Triple Crown history ended yesterday for D. Wayne Lukas, not with a whimper, but a controversy of his own making.The streak spanned three years, four horses and six Triple Crown races. When Lukas' run to glory finally ended where it started, in the Preakness, the country's hottest trainer was left to contemplate his place in history."I've had a hell of a run, better than anybody in the country, and I appreciate that," Lukas said after his three-horse entry failed to win the Preakness.

GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas - The 21st Breeders' Cup concluded Saturday at Lone Star Park with a spectacular performance by Ghostzapper - a horse unknown outside racing circles. The bay colt, 4 years old and suitably named for Halloween exploits, led every step of the $4 million Breeders' Cup Classic to win by three lengths in a record time of 1 minute, 59.02 seconds for 1 1/4 miles. No previous winner of the Classic, North America's richest race, had run faster - not Sunday Silence, not Alysheba, not Cigar.

In the early morning hours in an almost deserted Pimlico grandstand yesterday, trainer Nick Zito touched a monitor and up flashed the 1996 Preakness. There was Zito-trained Louis Quatorze speeding to the front, fending off a challenge from the great Skip Away at the head of the stretch and drawing off to win easily in 1:53 2/5 to equal Tank's Prospect's record time. "I like to see it once a year," said Zito, one of only two trainers to break the Bob Baffert-D. Wayne Lukas domination of the Preakness since 1994.

NEW YORK - Jerry Bailey has learned a thing or two in winning five Eclipse awards as North America's top jockey, four Dubai World Cups, 12 Breeders' Cup races and two Kentucky Derbys. "You can never have too many," Bailey said. He was referring to potential Derby mounts, the pot at the end of every jockey's rainbow. Bailey has already lost two this year, perhaps the top two: Siphonic and Repent, both to ankle injuries. Repent is to undergo surgery Monday for removal of a bone chip after carrying Bailey to a disappointing, second-place finish last week in the Illinois Derby.

The big horse ran his race. Forget the puzzling fifth-place performance in the Kentucky Derby. Forget his second straight post position on the extreme outside. Forget his unruly behavior Friday morning at the stakes barn when Point Given reared on his hind legs and gave everyone a thrill and a tingle. Trainer Bob Baffert said then, "It's his way of telling us he's feeling good, ready to roll." And forget the fooling around the chestnut colt did in the Preakness stretch, gandering into the grandstand and making it difficult for jockey Gary Stevens to change leads.

Richard Migliore, Allied Forces: "I wouldn't say he couldn't handle dirt, but he didn't handle this dirt. I don't think he got a real good hold of the track."Chris McCarron, Cavonnier: "It's not really appropriate to use the track as an excuse. Everybody has to run on it. But it was apparent to me that my horse was struggling and having trouble handling the track. He had to be encouraged much earlier in the race than ever, and that's not him. I don't know if it was the off track or he bounced off several good races."

For Include, the race presents an entree into the highest level of American racing. For Albert the Great, the race presents a chance to stay there. The Pimlico Special offers a showdown between these two as well as a challenge by four other horses running for $750,000 today at Pimlico Race Course. Albert the Great is the 4-5 morning-line favorite, Include the 3-1 second choice. Grover G. "Bud" Delp, trainer of Include, and Robert E. Meyerhoff, the colt's breeder and owner, have been pointing to this race since last fall.

There is speed on the rail, on the far outside and in the center of the pack. The overwhelming favorite, Kentucky Derby winner Fusaichi Pegasus, and the second choice, Red Bullet, are right where they want to be. So, the 125th Preakness should provide an intriguing race after the post position draw was executed yesterday at the ESPN Zone. With only eight horses and a quarter mile of ground to the first turn, the Preakness draw usually lacks the drama of the Kentucky Derby, where a cavalry charge for position frequently occurs in a crowded field.
