When he saddled Honor Grades for the Derby Trial, it was his first official starter.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- Excavate's odds in the Kentucky Derby future book crashed before some of the Las Vegas casinos learned how to spell his name.Probably because of a slip of the tongue by his trainer, Charlie Whittingham, the 2-year-old colt had been listed as "Excavator" by at least two Nevada race books.Minutes after Whittingham's Golden Pheasant had won this year's Arlington Million, the trainer was unexpectedly asked on national television about his Kentucky Derby prospects. Whittingham stumbled over the horse's name, it came out "Excavator," and that's the way it stayed in Las Vegas until recently.

Whadjathink, the Dick Duchossois-owned, Michael Whittingham-trained runner, is taking an unusual training route to the Preakness.He's being prepared for the race by working out on Pimlico's grass course.The big, handsome grandson of Seattle Slew has flat, shelly feet. The main track, which is currently on the fast, hard side, has been stinging his hoofs.So Whittingham elected yesterday to gallop him on the grass."It's nothing serious," Whittingham said. "I might put him back on the main track today."

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Charlie Whittingham is 83 years old and stuck in a serious slump.His horse, Corker, is a raw long shot given little chance of winning the Kentucky Derby tomorrow at Churchill Downs.So why is he making everyone else nervous?Why are they so scared of him?Because he is here.Even now, some 62 years after he took out his trainer's license in California, Whittingham intimidates the opposition at the Derby just by showing up.There is a reason. His horses almost always contend here, even when their chances appear negligible.

It seems more than a coincidence that Hall of Fame trainer Charlie Whittingham and his handsome bay, Numerous, are only a few stalls removed from Rodney Rash and long shot Powis Castle in the Preakness barn.For 11 years, the old man from Sierra Madre, Calif., and the farm boy from Woodbine were linked in life like an entry -- the legendary horseman and his prodigal son."Rodney turned up at Santa Anita when he was 15, and talked my foreman into giving him a job as a hot walker," Whittingham said.

Rodney Rash was 15 and stubborn when he left his family's dairy farm in Woodbine in Carroll County to go to Southern California to learn the horse-racing business.A friend gave him a list of five trainers to contact. At the bottom of the list was the name of a legend, Charlie Whittingham."A friend told me to not even bother going to Mr. Whittingham. He wouldn't even take me," Rash said. "So, of course, I went to Mr. Whittingham first. I just showed up at his doorstep. I got to his barn really early, 3:45 a.m. He showed up 15 minutes later, and I asked him for a job. He sized me up and said he didn't have any work for me. I started walking away when I ran into his old foreman, Mr. Ed Lambert.
