It was 25 years ago that the lightly regarded Onion upset Secretariat in Saratoga's Whitney Handicap. Trainer Allen Jerkens and jockey Jacinto Vasquez, who engineered that shocker, may do some reminiscing this weekend at the upstate New York track, Jerkens trying to win another Whitney with another longshot Saturday and Vasquez in town for his induction into the Racing Hall of Fame on Monday.

The Angel Penna-trained entry of Montubio and Mi Selecto ran 1-2 in Saturday's $403,300 Brooklyn Handicap at Belmont Park, although investigation of a foul claim prompted stewards to switch the order of finish. Mi Selecto, ridden by Jerry Bailey, finished the 1 1/2 miles a head in front of Montubio, with Jacinto Vasquez in the saddle.

To hear jockey Jacinto Vasquez tell it, all Smile had to do to win the Breeders' Cup Sprint was get out of the gate standing up. "I have to worry about him coming out of the gate too fast," Vasquez said. "If he comes out too fast he lands on his head. Today he came out on his feet." Vasquez certainly needed that little intricacy of horse racing--running with his feet rather than his head--considering he was facing heavily favored Groovy.

At the gap in the fence at Belmont Park, there's a man assigned by the race track to identify the horses before they work out in the mornings. The other day, jockey Jacinto Vasquez came to the gap with a horse and the man asked: "Who's this?" "Forego," Vasquez deadpanned, using the name of the three-time Horse of the Year that he rode to some major victories in the mid-1970s. Drollery has always been one of Vasquez's calling cards.
