After running 10th, beaten by 10 3/4 lengths, as the Derby favorite, Hansel easily disposed of four rivals from Churchill Downs and three others.

Hansel, the seven-length winner of the Preakness, will run in the Belmont Stakes June 8, trainer Frank Brothers said Wednesday. Brothers' decision to ship Hansel to New York will set up a showdown with Strike The Gold, who won the Kentucky Derby before running sixth in the Preakness. Hansel had been as big a dud in the Derby as Strike The Gold was in the Preakness, finishing 10th as the favorite at Churchill Downs.

Owner Gary Tanaka, trainer Ben Cecil and jockey Gary Stevens teamed for a memorable holiday Saturday at Hollywood Park. Two races after Magellan scored a 5-1 upset in the $150,000 American Handicap, the three were a winning combination again as 19-10 favorite Squeak outbattled Sixy Saint in the final yards to win the $300,000 Beverly Hills Handicap. "Not bad," Cecil said. "I thought they both had very good shots. I was more confident with Magellan than Squeak.

REMARKS: On a Belmont Stakes weekend when trainer Wayne Lukas wouldn't let Gary Stevens forget his unfortunate ride aboard Farma Way in a $500,000 race--"It has to go down in history as one of the world's worst rides," he said--another conditioner, LeRoy Jolley, applauded Jerry Bailey's rides on Hansel in the Belmont and Meadow Star in the Mother Goose.

In the starting gate, Strike The Gold was not cooperating. His head was down. He bucked once. "It looked like he got mad," said Jerry Bailey, who was sitting on Hansel, the horse in the stall to the right of Strike The Gold. This was on Saturday at Churchill Downs, seconds before the start of the 117th Kentucky Derby. "It's always loud at the Derby," said Chris Antley, who was trying to keep Strike The Gold composed. "He reared up, but it wasn't so bad."
