Martha's Vineyard -- OF ALL THE celebrities I have ever seen on this celebrity-blighted island, no one has ever created the excitement caused by Princess Diana. She is not only the talk of Martha's Vineyard, but also whenever I speak to the mainland, people want every morsel of information I can give them.I had the most unbelievable experience when I spotted her one morning walking down Main Street in Vineyard Haven with some friends. At first I couldn't believe my eyes, so I started pinching myself until it hurt.

Nowhere in sight coming around the turn for home, Vineyard Haven, the youngest horse in the Grade I, $300,000 Frank J. De Francis Memorial Dash, found space along the rail and charged for the wire under the urging of jockey Alan Garcia. Coming down the sloppy front straight, the 3-year-old passed Fleet Valid and then nosed ahead of Laurel Park-based Ravalo for a half-length victory. "Midway round that turn, I didn't think we had any horse left," said Vineyard Haven's assistant trainer, Rick Mettee, who was handling the Godolphin Racing-owned horse for trainer Saeed bin Suroor.
