GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas — Gary Stevens, who won the Kentucky Derby aboard Silver Charm, earned the $100,000 National All-Star Jockey Championship without winning a race Friday night, taking a second and two thirds in his four rides.

Stevens earned $25,000 with his 14-point finish. Chris McCarron, who had a winner and a fourth-place finisher, came in second with 12 points behind the jockey he upset in the Belmont Stakes to keep Silver Charm from winning the Triple Crown.

Ronald Ardoin, Jerry Bailey, Pat Day and Mike Smith shared third with nine points each. Eddie Delahoussaye, Kent Desormeaux and Marlon St. Julien scored seven points each and Shane Sellers had six. Laffit Pincay Jr. and Jorge Velasquez were shut out.
