SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -- The news of Meadow Star's withdrawal from the 111th running of the nation's oldest race for 3-year-old fillies brightened Shug McGaughey's morning. "I was not disappointed," he said from behind a smile. Versailles Treaty brightened the trainer's afternoon.Trainer Leroy Jolley elected to scratch Meadow Star from the Alabama yesterday rather than run on a muddy track. And in the absence of the filly who has won 11 of 12 races against females, Versailles Treaty's stock soared at the betting windows.

ELMONT, N.Y. -- Providing a fitting conclusion to a memorable weekend, Meadow Star outfought Lite Light in a torrid stretch duel in the $200,000 Mother Goose Stakes at Belmont Park yesterday.Meadow Star won by a fraction of an inch over Lite Light after the pair went nose-to-nose through the long Belmont stretch. Meadow Star led on a slow pace before Lite Light, farthest outside, drew even at the quarter pole.As a crowd of 16,784 roared, Meadow Star appeared to have a visible margin one stride before the wire, but Lite Light gave a final gasp that rendered them virtually inseparable.

NEW YORK -- The reigning Queen of the Turf spent a relaxed day in her stall at Belmont Park yesterday as her owners plotted their next step.Having thrashed Meadow Star in Saturday's Coaching Club American Oaks at Belmont, Lite Light is likely to race fillies again, but not until the fall. At an informal news conference yesterday at Hollywood Park, owners M.C. Hammer and his family said Lite Light will rest for a spell and then prepare for races in September. She is scheduled to leave Belmont for her base at the northern California tracks tomorrow or Wednesday.

Lite Light will return to New York for a rematch against Meadow Star in the Coaching Club American Oaks July 6, but it's going to be hard to match their awesome duel in the Mother Goose Stakes at Belmont Park a week ago.Meadow Star won by about a half-inch, giving a fitting end to what the New York Racing Association rightfully called the year's best weekend of racing in the country.Unwarranted criticism of jockey Corey Nakatani, who rode Lite Light, will long be forgotten when the 1991 Mother Goose is included in a list of memorable races.

ELMONT, N.Y. -- "You better leave," LeRoy Jolley Jr. told a reporter. "You're making him nervous."LeRoy Jolley Sr. has never needed much stimulus to become uptight, but he has one. He is the trainer of Meadow Star, the 2-year-old filly who is the superstar of this Breeders' Cup if it has one.Meadow Star is also a light in the tunnel for perhaps thousands of single-parent families and abused children in the New York area. Owner Carl Icahn, who runs TWA among other things, has decreed that all Meadow Star's winnings go to the Children's Rescue Fund he founded.

Leroy Jolley has been down this road before. The veteran trainer likes to use the Wood Memorial as a prep for the Kentucky Derby, and twice it has paid off with a Derby victory.One of his winners was Genuine Risk, a filly who lost her unbeaten status with a third-place finish in the 1980 Wood. She then became the second of three fillies to win the Derby.Today, Jolley sends out another unbeaten filly in the $500,000 Wood, which will be simulcast to Pimlico Race Course and the Laurel intertrack outlet from Aqueduct in New York.

When M.C. Hammer showed up on the Belmont Park W backstretch Friday morning, he lent a little excitement to an otherwise mundane pre-Belmont week.The 27-year-old rap star and his entourage of about 10 mad their way from barn to barn, turning heads and drawing whoops. Hammer had his picture taken with Lite Light, Strike the Gold and even Meadow Star, but when asked to pose with Media Plan, he refused because the colt had not yet won for Oaktown Stable, the outfit owned by his family. "Got to win first," he said.

Lite Light will not run in the June 8 Belmont Stakes after all.The filly instead will run against her own kind, including Meadow Star, in the Mother Goose Stakes at Belmont Park the next day, one of her owners, Louis Burrell Jr., said yesterday from California.The decision sets up a potentially dramatic match among the nation's top two 3-year-old fillies.The size of the Belmont field, which should be the biggest in eight years, was a factor in causing Lite Light's owners to skip the Belmont, Burrell said.

Colts coach's agency gave collegians loansA sports agency headed by Indianapolis Colts head coach Ron Meyer and two other men lent more than $100,000 to eight football players while they still were in college, The Dallas Morning News reported yesterday.Under National Collegiate Athletic Association rules, the eight former collegians would have been ineligible to compete because they had signed deals with the agency.The transactions came to light in lawsuits filed by Meyer, Steve Endicott and Sherwood Blount Jr., operating as Athletic Associates Inc. of Dallas.

NEW YORK -- The agony of victory was chiseled into Scott Schulhofer's face as the 1991 Wood Memorial winner limped into the Aqueduct winner's circle and out of the Kentucky Derby picture. He did not feel well; his horse felt worse."Cahill Road just has so much heart, he just wouldn't give it up," a pained horse trainer said. "Some kind of racehorse."He was already paying his respects, not to the dead, but to the damaged.In a race so bedeviled with misfortune that the winning triple paid $666, Cahill Road rocketed to a three-length victory in yesterday's Wood Memorial at Aqueduct and then returned to the winner's circle lame with a career-threatening injury.

He is scheduled to work at Laurel next Wednesday."We will only go if we think we have a shot to do really well," said Ben Perkins Jr., the horse's trainer.
