Albert Barrera, who says his career as a trainer may be in jeopardy, plans to appeal any sanctions that may be made against him in the state's widening investigation into the drugging of horses with cocaine. "A six-month suspension would end my career," Barrera said. "I learned how to train horses from my father, and something I didn't learn from him was to give horses cocaine and other drugs."

Kentucky Derby hopeful Simply Majestic took the lead at the head of the stretch Saturday and won the $300,000 California Derby at Golden Gate Fields by 3 1/2 lengths in a track record-tying time of 1:46 3/5. Simply Majestic, with Luis Ortega up, ran comfortably early before rallying to win. Flying Flags, a 17-1 longshot, closed rapidly down the stretch to take second, and favorite Blanco was third. Simply Majestic paid $21.60, $12.80 and $6.40; Flying Flag returned $15.40 and $6.

The same old noncommittal Louie Roussel is preparing Risen Star to run in Saturday's $506,200 Belmont Stakes. Roussel, the 42-year-old co-owner and trainer of the Preakness winner and third-place finisher in the Kentucky Derby, hasn't changed for the six-horse windup to the Triple Crown. He is fraternizing with turf reporters at his barn, welcoming visiting priests and nuns and still sitting on the fence regarding Risen Star's status for the 1 1/2-mile Belmont.

Alysheba was nominated for Sunday's $150,000 San Pasqual Handicap at Santa Anita, and then was assigned top weight of 126 pounds. But he won't be running Sunday. He ran his race before a limited audience Wednesday morning at Hollywood Park. With Chris McCarron in the saddle, last year's Kentucky Derby winner and champion 3-year-old colt worked 1 miles in an excellent 2:03.

Despite her loss in the Breeders' Cup, Stella Madrid can wrap up an Eclipse Award Sunday. All the 2-year-old Alydar filly has to do is win the $500,000 Hollywood Starlet against nine of her classmates. Third in the Juvenile Fillies, beaten by slightly more than three lengths by Go For Wand, Stella Madrid drew the rail in the mile Grade I event. But it isn't the ideal post for the run up the long chute. Still, Peter Brant's filly has proved herself adept around one turn.

Wayne Lukas' barn, which swept the three stakes at Belmont Park during the weekend, kept right on winning Monday at Hollywood Park as Steinlen caught Hawkster in the stretch to win the $500,000 Hollywood Turf Handicap by a neck before a crowd of 30,091. "This ranks right up there with the Breeders' Cup," Lukas said, referring to the day at Churchill Downs in 1988 when he saddled horses that won three of the seven million-dollar races.

Will Sunday Silence return as good as ever from his surgery? Only time and Charlie Whittingham will tell. But the results of last Sunday's seventh race at Hollywood Park had to be encouraging for anyone who has ever had a horse with a bone chip removed from a knee. Crown Collection, a 3-year-old son of Alydar who made some strange headlines in the past year, ran for the first time since arthroscopic knee surgery last spring and won the six-furlong allowance race by nearly three lengths.

Barns 37 and 39 face one another on the backstretch at Churchill Downs. This gives Winning Colors, the skyscraper filly, and Private Terms, the big, black colt, the opportunity to look at each other almost 24 hours a day. The two 3-year-olds might also be seeing a lot of each other through the tiring stretch here Saturday, when Churchill Downs runs the Kentucky Derby for the 114th time. Winning Colors is the speed horse in the 1-mile race.

It seemed unusual that Winning Colors' workout before the Spinster Stakes would have been at Churchill Downs instead of Keeneland, where the race was going to be run. The tracks are 70 miles apart, but not even close in terms of running surfaces. Keeneland's track is so deep that trainers have nightmares about their horse stepping onto it and disappearing. "We don't care for the strip at Keeneland," said Wayne Lukas, Winning Colors' trainer.

In the early 1990s, the hits just kept coming for Wayne Lukas' stable. Not win after win in major races, but hits below the belt, blows that virtually made an ordinary outfit out of what had been a racing monolith for a decade. The resourceful Lukas is now back big-time, on a roll that has made the Triple Crown series his private preserve.
