Serena's Song, running unchallenged after turning for home, completed the 1 1/8 miles in 1 minute, 48 2/5 seconds, only one-fifth of a second off the stakes record for the distance.

The great Serena's Song had everything her way in the Grade III, $200,000 Pimlico Distaff yesterday and broke a three-race losing streak with a 1 1/2 -length score over Shoop.With only three rivals to contest, the Eclipse Award winner immediately seized the lead and held off all challenges while running 1 1/8 miles in a respectable 1 minute, 49 3/5 seconds."She handled everything fine," said jockey Gary Stevens. "She's a complete professional and coming back into her own now. There's no reason that she can't come back to her best form."

Eclipse Award winner Serena's Song, the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes champion last year, and Mecke, the favorite in the Grade II $200,000 Early Times Dixie, headline a star-studded field on today's Preakness undercard.Serena's Song has drawn only four rivals to test her in the first big race of the afternoon (fourth on the card), the Grade III $200,000 Pimlico Distaff at 1 1/8 miles.Despite a three-race losing streak, she figures to be a short-priced choice for trainer D. Wayne Lukas, particularly after her easy victory in the 1995 Black-Eyed Susan over the same Pimlico track.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Brian Mayberry trains a filly named Urbane.But he's walking around Churchill Downs this week sporting a cap that reads, "Serena's Song."The rival fillies were scheduled to meet again tomorrow in the $300,000 Kentucky Oaks.Except D. Wayne Lukas, trainer of Serena's Song, decided to tread where few, except him, have tread before: He's running Serena's Song against the boys in the Kentucky Derby.Lukas is sacrificing an easier spot against female competition for "a chance at immortality."

NEW YORK -- Serena's Song, the filly star of the D. Wayne Lukas barn, will give her next performance en route to the filly championship when she runs today as the prohibitive favorite in the Coaching Club American Oaks at Belmont Park.She has won seven straight races against fillies, a streak that was interrupted when she ran 16th against the colts in the Kentucky Derby.But two weeks later, Serena's Song bounced back from that defeat to win the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes at Pimlico by nine lengths, and three weeks after that to capture the Mother Goose Stakes at Belmont by three lengths.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Need a rooting interest in the Kentucky Derby today? A smart pick on which to wager your nickels? Here are the six essential questions to ask while surfing the 19-horse ,, field:* Imported or domestic? This is by far the most international Derby ever, with more than a third of the field either bred or based outside the United States. Jumron and In Character were bred in England, and Citadeed and Eltish are based there. Talkin Man and Knockadoon were bred in Canada. Ski Country is based in Japan.

Serena's Song, the filly who took on the boys nine days ago in the Kentucky Derby, is headed to Pimlico Race Course.But she won't be running Saturday in the Preakness Stakes.Instead, her owner, Robert Lewis of Newport Beach, Calif., confirmed yesterday what had been rumored at the track for the past couple of days -- Serena's Song will start Friday at Pimlico in the $200,000 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes, which is restricted to 3-year-old fillies.Serena's Song, who set some of the quickest early fractions in Derby history and led until the top of the stretch, also will have a new jockey: Gary Stevens, who won the Kentucky Derby on Thunder Gulch.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- There's no such phrase as "horse shortage" at this year's Kentucky Derby.A field of 19 3-year-olds, three more than the recent 10-year average of 16 starters, appears fairly certain to be entered Thursday for the 121st running of the race.It's an eclectic group: one filly (Serena's Song), a horse from Japan (Ski Captain), a Canadian champion (Talkin Man), a pair of English-breds (Jumron, In Character) and not a single U.S.-hyped superhero, although Serena's Song, the lone female, heightens interest and star quality.

First Baltimore, then Del Mar.That's the schedule for Canadian trainer David Bell, who livens up today's opener at Pimlico Race Course with the entry of John Franks' Brook of Knowledge in the Park Heights Handicap.The chestnut filly is so overpowering that she looks like a colt. But she'll need that strength to overhaul the speedy frontrunners this afternoon in the $50,000 5-furlong grass dash.Especially tough could be Peter Angelos' Cormorant's Flight, who looks like she finally might be rounding into winning form for her most recent trainer, Bill Donovan.

Wayne Lukas considered the least likely of his three starters to win, stormed to the front at the top of the stretch at Churchill Downs and with another quarter of a mile to go, held off all comers in the fastest Derby in 10 years.Lukas watched as Serena's Song, the filly that he trains and was the lone female in the 19-horse field, wilted and finished 16th after setting a quick early pace that left her exhausted.
