When Leger Cat finished fourth in the Shoemaker Handicap on April 25, it was the first time the 7-year-old had finished worse than second in seven starts on the Hollywood Park turf course. The slump didn't last long for Leger Cat, who is owned by Ed Allred and Hollywood Park chairman R.D. Hubbard. Leger Cat scored his sixth victory in eight Inglewood starts by defeating Rainbow Corner by a head in the $163,200 John Henry Handicap on Sunday.

And talk about self-serving. Wednesday night's announcement could also be construed as manipulating the news. "It was a way to get the word out to 40 million viewers," NBC spokesman Ed Markey said. Turner's CNN made the same announcement almost simultaneously.

Whether or not Charismatic wins the Triple Crown in the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, ABC will be prepared. It is giving the race Super Bowl-type coverage and will have 37 cameras at the track.
