A year ago, when Barbara Jo Rubin agreed to compete in the first Lady's Legends race at Pimlico Race Course, she discovered how uncomfortable it can be to ride a horse when you haven't done it in 40 years. Afterward, not knowing if there would be another Legends race, which raised $100,000 for the Susan G. Komen cancer fund, she decided to keep training horses and stay in shape. If there was going to be a race, she'd be ready. But the best laid plans, as they say . . .

Trevor McCarthy has ridden 171 winners in his young career, but none more exciting than scoring with Chi Chi's Pride in Thursday's third race at Laurel Park. At the break, the 4-year-old gelding bumped with Carnbrea'sdestiny, causing McCarthy to lose his irons and forcing him to ride the entire race with his feet out of the stirrups. At the top of the stretch, Chi's Chi Pride was fifth but rallied between rivals and got up at the wire to beat Carnbrea'sdestiny by a nose. The horse, trained by John Salzman Jr., paid $10.80.
