A bay colt by Smoke Glacken who broke his sire's Timonium workout record by two-fifths of a second was purchased for $320,000 yesterday, topping Fasig-Tipton Midlantic's 2-year-olds-in-training sale. The New York-bred horse went to Richard Violette on behalf of Klaravich Stable. The colt worked three furlongs in 33 1/5 to bring the third-highest price ever at this sale. Gross from the sale increased nearly $500,000 to $9,805,300, largely because 40 more horses were sold this year. The average price was down almost 10 percent; median price was $20,000.

NEW ORLEANS -- Smoke Glacken's road to the Kentucky Derby ended yesterday at the Fair Grounds in New Orleans.The headstrong colt from Maryland finished a gutsy third in the $400,000 Louisiana Derby. But the distance of 1 1/16 miles pushed the speedy son of Two Punch to the limits of his stamina.He sprang to the front and zipped to a three-length lead down the backstretch. Then he charged gamely down the Fair Grounds' long homestretch, only to be passed near the wire by the fast-closing Crypto Star and Stop Watch.

The closers came flying at Absolutely Queenie yesterday, but none could catch her.As a result, the 35-1 long shot captured the $75,000 All Brandy Stakes with a front-running performance over 1 1/8 miles on the turf.It was an exhilarating maiden ride on the filly for jockey Robby Albarado."I had never ridden her before, so I let her break on her own," said Albarado. "She didn't break as well as I would have liked, but she went to the lead on her own. She relaxed comfortably down the backstretch and when I asked her to slow it down, she rated kindly."

Age was no barrier to Smoke Glacken yesterday at Laurel Park.In his first test against older horses, the nation's premier 3-year-old sprinter led from start to finish and won the eighth running of the Grade II, $300,000 De Francis Memorial Dash by 1 1/2 lengths.The 2-5 favorite thus stamped another credential onto his claim for an Eclipse Award as Sprinter of the Year.Withdrawn from Triple Crown consideration because he wasn't prepared for distance running, Smoke Glacken may now be pointed toward the Breeders' Cup sprint; he would have to be supplemented into the race.
