Last October, jockey Joy Scott, a 7-year survivor on the fair circuit, got a rare mount at Santa Anita, the No. 1 track in the West. The horse was a 6-year-old gelding named Smooth Bid. The smart money looked elsewhere. Smooth Bid was unpredictable, what jockeys call a nut case. And the rider was a fringe journeyman. Fringe journeymen win maybe once every few weeks at Santa Anita. Fringe journeymen who are also women hadn't won in nearly a decade.

But no one in these parts has been surprised that with the start of a new year, Krone is ensconced at Gulfstream Park in Florida, where she usually spends her winters quite successfully.

California has certainly agreed with Shippey Lane.

Owned by Mandolynn Hill Farms and trained by Billy Lewis, Shippey Lane won one of three starts in Oklahoma but has been perfect here since arriving earlier this year.

In the sixth, Sudden Mischief, a California-bred son of By Golly, will try for his sixth victory in eight starts against seven opponents.
