On America's birthday, Independence Day, the Fourth of July, the winner of Monday's first race at Hollywood Park was a horse called Star of America, a 6-year-old gelding out of a grand old nag named--we kid you not--America's Birthday. No, he did not pay $17.76 to win. No, no one stuck a feather in his cap and called him Macaroni. No, his rider did not spot a lantern in an Inglewood church steeple.

Scratches and complaints at Longacres Racetrack have ebbed dramatically, three days after several jockeys withdrew from riding for one day to protest what they said were dangerous conditions at the rain-soaked track. The protesting jockeys Thursday included some of the premier riders at Longacres: Vicky Aragon, Gary Boulanger, Frank Gonsalves, James Corral and Tim Camargo. Frustrated trainers also scratched 21 horses from Thursday's nine races after a thunderstorm drenched the track.

Steppin Early, a lightly raced 4-year-old, rushed to the lead soon after the start and beat Many Passes by three-quarters of a length in Thursday's $36,000 allowance feature for fillies and mares at Santa Anita. It was Steppin Early's second victory in three career starts and provided jockey Patrick Valenzuela with his third winning ride of the day. Valenzuela also took both halves of the daily double with Miracle Mystery ($13.40) and Sobreviviente ($12.20).

Until this June, Conquering Hero had run 29 races, all on grass. Then in his second start on dirt, at Los Alamitos in August, he won the $100,000 Orange County Handicap, and now he's one of the horses to beat in Sunday's $150,000 Pomona Invitational Handicap at Fairplex Park. Sunday marks the close of the 18-day Los Angeles County Fair meeting at Fairplex.

Gary Stevens broke his right elbow and four other jockeys escaped serious injury in a horrifying five-horse spill during the first race Wednesday at Hollywood Park. The nation's top money-winning rider in 1990, Stevens is expected to be out of racing for three to four weeks, according to Dr. Robert Kerlan. Stevens was thrown when his mount, Rotation Speed, broke down while battling for the lead on the far turn.

On paper, Sunday's $167,900 Del Mar Oaks looked as if it could be won by nearly any of the 12 entrants. On the track, the meeting's prime race for 3-year-old fillies turned into a one-horse race. Recipient of a picture-perfect trip, despite the bulky field, Slew Of Pearls made 8-1 seem like a gift, beating 10-1 shot Adorable Emilie by nearly two lengths in 1:49 4/5 for the 1 1/8 miles on turf.

Looking solely at the earnings of the seven horses entered in Wednesday's $75,000-added Debonair Stakes for 3-year-old colts at Hollywood Park, it was difficult not to spot the anomaly. Six of the horses had a total of $369,082 in lifetime winnings. A seventh had $821,459. Not surprisingly, this prompted a question among the 23,099 fans who showed up on the opening day of the track's spring-summer meeting. What was Success Express doing in such comparatively lowly company?

They presented a large, well-decorated cake to Eddie Delahoussaye in the jockeys' room at Hollywod Park just prior to Sunday's feature race. "Congratulations, Eddie," read the iced lettering on the top, a reference to Delahoussaye's victory the day before in the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico. They could just as easily have presented the same cake to him after the $200,000-added Mervyn LeRoy Handicap, because once again it was Delahoussaye in the winner's circle.
