Jose Amy, once among the most promising jockeys in the country, won't be riding in any of the eight Breeders' Cup races, or any of the other races on the card, Saturday at Belmont Park. Amy will be here, wistfully thinking about what might have been. Because Amy held horses, keeping them from winning, when he was an upstart jockey from Puerto Rico in 1974 and 1975, he lost his New York license in 1980 and in effect was banned from riding in the continental U.S. for almost 24 years.

Eric Guerin and Con Errico died Sunday. They were retired jockeys and spent their final years in Florida. The rest of their lives were markedly different. Guerin, a product of backwater Louisiana, won a Kentucky Derby and 2,711 other races, and in 1972 he was elected to the Racing Hall of Fame. Brooklyn-born Consolato Errico got his start eight years later than Guerin, riding in his first race at 24, and he finished with slightly more than 700 winners.

Pine Tree Lane, a 3-year-old filly who had never raced, was entered in the sixth race at Aqueduct on Jan. 23. Running against other 3-year-old maidens, Pine Tree Lane was listed at 10 to 1 in the morning line by one of the handicappers in the Daily Racing Form. Other than her modest bloodlines, there was no information on her in the Form--no races and in this case not even a workout. In New York, betting stops before the last few horses are loaded into the gate.
