Miami Dolphins Coach Tony Sparano said Wednesday that Jason Taylor isn't expected to take part in any team activities through training camp and signaled the team is ready to move on without the six-time Pro Bowl defensive end. The revelation came less than 24 hours after Taylor finished second to Kristi Yamaguchi in the finals of "Dancing With the Stars" in Los Angeles. "I'm glad we know this. We've gotten the information, and that's important," Sparano said after a voluntary mini-camp.

Leariva, a 44-1 shot ridden by Edgar Prado, passed the field from the extreme outside and won the $750,000 International on Saturday in a 1-2-3 French finish. Leariva, a 4-year-old filly who had finished in the money in only one of her last five races, was 11th in the 13-horse field before going outside at the top of the stretch on the soft turf at Laurel Race Course. She became the fifth filly to win the 40-year-old International and paid $90.60, a record for the event.

Edgar Prado, the jockey aboard Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro when the colt broke down because of a shattered hind leg in the Preakness Stakes, said Wednesday he was "heartbroken" and spent much of the last few days crying. "I have never ridden a horse that broke down that was as special as Barbaro," Prado told reporters at Belmont Park in Elmont, N.Y., where he returned to the saddle after two days off.

Edgar Prado had ridden in 41 Breeders' Cup races before he won the Juvenile Fillies with Folklore at Belmont Park. "I just try to find the right horses to ride in the Breeders' Cup," said Prado, who has won more than 5,000 races in his career. "I got the job done this year. I hope there will be many more." Before Saturday, Prado's Breeders' Cup mounts had earned $2.6 million, which ranked him 23rd on the money list. His frustrations included four second-place finishes.

Sense Of Style, considered by some to be the best 2-year-old filly in the country, will make her first start around two turns in today's $400,000 Alcibiades at Keeneland. The daughter of Thunder Gulch will be favored against 10 foes in the Grade II at 1 1/16 miles. The Alcibiades is one of two graded stakes -- along with the $250,000 Phoenix Breeders' Cup at six furlongs -- on the opening-day card.

The camp of Funny Cide, the Kentucky Derby winner, appears to fear Peace Rules' jockey, Edgar Prado, more than Peace Rules himself in the 128th running of the Preakness today at Pimlico. "There's no question that Prado moves Peace Rules up," Robin Smullen, trainer Barclay Tagg's assistant, said this week at Funny Cide's barn at Belmont Park.

Smarty Jones lost his bid for the Triple Crown not because he didn't "settle," as trainer John Servis complained, but because Birdstone sat out the Preakness and was fresher, jockey Edgar Prado positioned Birdstone to overtake Smarty and jockey Stewart Elliott in the final 70 yards, and veteran trainer Nick Zito knows Belmont better than his counterpart. In fact, Smarty Jones did actually settle, but it was for second. Dan Anzel Los Angeles The Times' horse racing expert, Bob Mieszerski, keeps me reminded why the only horses I'll risk money on are going up, down and around on a merry-go-round.

Cayster sat well back of the pace before moving out at the three-quarter mark Tuesday to win the $100,000 New Jersey Sires Stakes Championship for 3-year-old trotting fillies at the Meadowlands.

The winner paid $4.80, $3 and $2.40; Miss Baltic paid $3.20 and $2.80, and Hi Po Monami paid $3.20.
