Girls in the stretch MARYLANDERS may remember a teen-age Julie Krone riding to some of her earliest victories at Pimlico in the 1980s, honing her gift for "getting a horse to do something easy." The retired jockey will get her due when she becomes the first female inducted into the Racing Hall of Fame in August. Ms. Krone, all of 4 feet 10.5 inches and maybe 100 pounds, was no lightweight in contest. She thundered into the inside with determination and became the most successful female jockey in history, winning 3,543 races.

Julie Krone remembers the winners. And there have been 3,543 winners, far more than for any other female jockey in history.But she cherishes the moments when fans, especially girls, tug on her silks and look with wide, sparkling eyes and say: "Julie Krone, I'm the leading scorer on my co-ed soccer team because of you.

Jose Santos only wanted to go after Julie Krone.There were winners, losers and angry jockeys yesterday at Saratoga.Furiously, undefeated in three starts on the turf, upset Star of Cozzene by a length in the nine-furlong Baruch to earn revenge for stablemate Lure, who has lost two straight to his rival.In doing so, he may have had an assist from the Krone-ridden Royal Mountain Inn, who had Star of Cozzene and Santos in tight quarters through much of the stretch run and appeared to bump with him several times.

Craig Perret looks like a man on a mission.At 39, he's on the brink of middle age and has certainly reached the time when most athletes have passed their peak.But Perret has never ridden better. His confidence and poise, much in evidence yesterday at the Maryland Million, had virtually gone unnoticed nationally until at the ripe old age of 36, he won the 1987 Belmont Stakes with Bet Twice.Up to that point, he was just another rider in New Jersey. Now he's one of the most sought-after stakes jockeys in the nation.
