Abstract (Document Summary)

[Chris McCarron] could be on the favorite, Dehere, in the Juvenile and a possible favorite, Paseana, in the Distaff, and has chances on several other mounts. But he will have less of a chance on Miner's Mark in the Classic, and just as McCarron disputed this analysis ("He started on the outside and on the turn in his last race {which he won at Belmont}, so I don't think the outside post will hurt him as much as people say"), the trainer of Miner's Mark, Shug McGaughey, strolled by while his champion grass horse, Lure, was about to work out.

[Clive Brittain] is the trainer of Sayyedati, an English horse who is listed at 15-1 in the Sprint. Sayyedati (ahhh, how should we put this?) seems to have a few strikes against her, beginning with the starting bell (European horses don't hear bells when they start races) and going on and on and on. Sayyedati will be racing in America for the first time, on dirt for the first time, at 6 furlongs for the first time in a year, and perhaps most of all, she is a little girl going against the big boys, a filly against colts.

Still, Brittain was smiling. "I always thought we'd be over here with her but going on the turf," said Brittain, "but Sheik {Maktoum bin Rashid al} Maktoum decided to go for the Sprint." And since the sheik is the man with the money, not to mention the ruler of Dubai, Brittain began readying his filly for the Sprint.
