ELMONT, N.Y. - The South American-bred Lido Palace leaped into the forefront of horses in North America yesterday with a determined victory in the $500,000 Woodward Stakes at Belmont Park. But the Chilean-bred 4-year-old, racing for the fourth time in this country, did little to fill American racing's need for a star to replace Point Given, retired recently with a tendon injury. Lido Palace will probably not race in the United States again this year. That means he would miss the $4 million Breeders' Cup Classic, this country's late-season jewel for crowning champions.

The Heisman Trophy competition is a three-man race - just as it's been all season. Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart of Southern California will be back in New York on Saturday, along with Texas quarterback Vince Young, when the Heisman Trophy is awarded. The Downtown Athletic Club, which hands out college football's most prestigious individual award, invited yesterday only those three players to the presentation ceremony. Last season, five players attended the Heisman ceremony, and Leinart won it. Since 1999, either four or five finalists have been invited to New York.

LAUREL -- Jim McKay anchors "Wide World of Sports" today from Gulfstream Park, where the Donn Handicap will be run.It is just the sort of television coverage Barry Weisbord, founder of the American Championship Racing Series, envisioned when he started the string of races a year ago.The principal story centers on a couple of last season's glamour 3-year-olds. One is Strike the Gold, who hasn't won a race since last year's Kentucky Derby.The other is Fly So Free, a beaten Derby choice, who hasn't been out since finishing fourth in the Breeders' Cup Classic.
