To find the trainer of Larry The Legend on the Del Mar backstretch, merely head for the brightest fire-engine red T-shirt. The 3-year-old colt is out of sight for now, but never out of mind. "A lawyer from Kentucky sent us some of these," Craig Lewis said. "Never met the man. But he's typical of the people who got wrapped up in this horse. His following hasn't diminished. During Hollywood Park, we'd still get letters, people wanting pictures of him."

Larry The Legend is an awfully nice little horse. The bettors around Santa Anita have taken a particular shine to Larry. Some think he was named after Larry Bird. Some think he looks a little like Larry Bird. Even while officially entering him Thursday, trainer Craig Lewis still wasn't sure whether Larry The Legend would be running in Saturday's $150,000 San Rafael Stakes. Be a shame if he didn't. As Lewis said: "He has such a following. He's almost becoming a folk hero."

At trainer Richard Mandella's barn Sunday morning, jockey Kent Desormeaux sat on a tack trunk and reflected on the Santa Anita Derby the day before. Larry The Legend, the horse Desormeaux used to ride, won the $700,000 race by a head, beating favored Afternoon Deelites, the horse Desormeaux always rides.
