ELMONT, N.Y. - As Lemon Drop Kid rolled through one big race after another, Jinny Vance kept her opinion mostly to herself.

His record is tough to beat, and if he doesn't get Horse of the Year, heads are going to roll."

Gregg McCarron returned to the track yesterday for the first time since retiring as a jockey April 22 and didn't exactly receive a hero's welcome at Laurel Race Course.He was teased about his weight (up a few pounds to 116), his suit and tie and nearly everything else.McCarron didn't expect a garden party in his new role as interim manager of the jockey room, but he hoped the guys would cut him a little slack. He still is fighting withdrawal pains from an outstanding 24-year career in which he won 2,403 races and his mounts earned $27,273,949.
