Considering Satis' record, it was a bit surprising the 2-year-old, French-bred colt wasn't given more respect at the mutuel windows before Sunday's $112,800 Hoist The Flag Stakes at Hollywood Park. Granted, he had been competing at some of France's lesser tracks, but he had won four times on turf, equaling the total of the 11 other members of the field. Still, Satis was only the fifth choice at nearly 12-1 and paid $25.60 in winning the Grade III race before 18,101.

Favorites have won more than their share of California Thoroughbred Breeders' Assn. stakes, with a 57% success rate in Southern California. But Wine 'N Music, with Laffit Pincay Jr. aboard, bucked 6-1 odds Monday in winning the six-furlong, $75,000 CTBA Stakes for 2-year-old fillies. Wine 'N Music caught Shanestar by a nose at the wire and was timed in 1:11. Don B's Princess, the 5-2 favorite ridden by Kent Desormeaux, finished third.

The prices on the 9,083 yearlings sold at public auction in the United States during 1988 ranged from $3.5 million to $100. The average horse brought $31,250. Cool Gold Mood was anything but average. He was one of 13 horses who sold for $100 in 1988, and actually he wasn't sold at all. When Cool Gold Mood was led into the sales ring, no one at Keeneland bid for him. The agency that consigned the horse bought him back for $100.

There were many reasons why Jean-Laurent Andreani's racing operation went on the rocks. It didn't help that the French-born owner-breeder paid $250,000 for a yearling estimated by his breeders to be worth less than 10% of that. The story was told here Wednesday when Never Round, the colt Andreani bought, finished last in a division of Del Mar's opening-day feature, the Oceanside Stakes.

New York racing authorities have dredged up a five-day suspension that Santos owed them from last year and ordered him to serve the time Aug. 1-5.
