It seems more than a coincidence that Hall of Fame trainer Charlie Whittingham and his handsome bay, Numerous, are only a few stalls removed from Rodney Rash and long shot Powis Castle in the Preakness barn.For 11 years, the old man from Sierra Madre, Calif., and the farm boy from Woodbine were linked in life like an entry -- the legendary horseman and his prodigal son."Rodney turned up at Santa Anita when he was 15, and talked my foreman into giving him a job as a hot walker," Whittingham said.

Milton Higgins was headed back to the paddock after the General George Stakes yesterday, sure that his horse, Who Wouldn't, was a loser.The gritty gelding swept to the outside of stylish front-runner Storm Tower in the long stretch at Laurel Park and caught him at the wire.

New Jersey-based trainer Ned Allard invaded Laurel Park with another of his speedy 3-year-olds yesterday and won the $34,650 Horatius Stakes with Gilbert Campbell's Dakota's Trick.The son of sprint sire Clever Trick was expected to vie for the early lead with John Alecci's Carolina Blues. But jockey Rick Wilson said Dakota's Trick was "looking around" when the gate opened and got off to a poor start."I just said, 'Aw, shucks,' when I saw that happen," Allard said.Carolina Blues opened an uncontested three-length lead, but was overtaken by a rallying Dakota's Trick in the last sixteenth of a mile.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Despite his 12th-place Kentucky Derby finish, Holy Bull could rebound and become the favorite to win the May 21 Preakness at Pimlico Race Course.Clem Florio, Pimlico oddsmaker, said that he feels the result of Saturday's 120th Derby, won in the slop by Go For Gin at 9.10-1 odds, is "not conclusive because of the conditions. If Holy Bull works well between now and the Preakness, I'm willing to give him one more shot."Florio envisions making Holy Bull, the 2.20-1 Derby favorite, a lukewarm Preakness choice at 5-2, although he failed to make the lead in the Derby and was beaten by 18 1/4 lengths.
