The day Ruth Warrington Lee interviewed Kellisa Byrd in her office at the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel, she got seasick watching the young welfare mom bounce and rock in her chair. If Kellisa was going to make it past her first job interview, Ruth would have to do something about that bounce. Ruth's job at the luxury Marriott property is to coach people who have never held a job into a career in the hotel industry. Her first step is to size up the candidate, a task she handles with straight talk, prying questions and instinct.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- After 23 straight victories in which she overcame sickness, travel and poor post positions, Sanabelle Island ran into an obstacle yesterday she couldn't overcome: traffic.The 3-year-old Maryland-bred pacing filly lost for the first time when she became trapped inside and behind horses and -- frantically searching for running room -- finished third in the prestigious Mistletoe Shalee Stakes at the Meadowlands.A victory would have matched the streak of the outstanding pacing mare Handle With Care, who won 24 in a row at the beginning of her career in 1973 and 1974.

Sanabelle Island, the 3-year-old Maryland-bred pacer who has never lost, seeks win No. 23 tonight at the Meadowlands in New Jersey.Trained and ridden by Steve Warrington at his farm on the Eastern Shore, Sanabelle Island is a filly on the verge of history. She is two victories shy of matching the pacing filly record of 24 straight wins.She won No. 22 a week ago at Rosecroft Raceway in Prince George's County. It was her first race in 28 days after contracting a respiratory virus.Warrington was concerned about her conditioning, but her mile time of 1 minute, 53 2/5 seconds was a personal best.
