For the first time since 1980, trainer D. Wayne Lukas won't have an entry in the Kentucky Derby.Lukas, who has won the last two Derbys and seven of the last eight Triple Crown races, said yesterday he will be just a spectator for the 123rd Kentucky Derby on May 3."It serves no purpose for me to try and be in the race. I think there are times in a trainer's life -- mine included -- when I wanted to be in the race. That's long past. I've been in 16 of them," he said.Lukas nominated 23 3-year-olds for the Derby.

Trainer Ron Cartwright goes for his sixth Maryland stakes win of the year today, running Miss Slewpy in the $75,000 Carousel Stakes nine days after the 3-year-old filly scored her first added-money victory in the Anne Arundel Handicap.The Carousel Stakes is too good a race to pass up, a Grade III event with a large purse that has drawn only a six-horse field, even if it means Miss Slewpy will face older and more experienced opposition for the first time after only a short rest."There really is nothing else for her to run in right now and I don't think it will hurt her," Cartwright said.

ARCADIA, Calif. -- Maybe it wasn't business that took Kent Desormeaux to Belmont Park on Saturday. Maybe he was just showing his fellow Santa Anita jockeys a little mercy.Desormeaux missed two Santa Anita stakes that afternoon, and those are the only stakes he didn't win in the opening, six-day week of the Oak Tree Racing Association season.Yesterday, the 22-year-old jockey ran his stakes record to 4-for-4 by whipping Gray Slewpy to a neck victory over 25-1 Trick Me in the Ancient Title Breeders' Cup Handicap, which featured four Breeders' Cup Sprint hopefuls.

King T. Leatherbury's illness cost Nick Bassford about $500. But Leatherbury's instincts provided Bassford with about $36,000.So, on balance, Bassford wasn't complaining.Leatherbury is the trainer of the 4-year-old filly Julie's Brilliance, who prevailed in yesterday's $60,000 Conniver Stakes at Laurel Park. Julie's Brilliance stuck her nose in front of Miss Slewpy, pulling an upset and producing a winning mutuel payoff of $26.20.4 The winner's long-shot status was well founded.Julie's Brilliance, with three lifetime victories, was facing stakes-winning foes, including Miss Slewpy, who had won eight of 11 lifetime starts, and Up An Eighth, who ran second in the Grade III $200,000 Barbara Fritchie Handicap last month.
