Randy Winick is a man with Ran and Win built into his name. So you could say he was born to race. He trains thoroughbred horses for a living, just as his father did. He is currently the trainer of Brocco, who ran to win in Saturday's Santa Anita Derby with such authority and beauty, it is not inconceivable that his horse will be the favorite to do likewise in the Kentucky Derby next month. Talking about the Kentucky Derby recently, Winick said it wasn't that big a deal.

Carrying 117 pounds and ridden by Corey Nakatani, Colonel Rumbo, a 5-year-old son of Rumbo trained by Thomas M. Bunn Jr.

Brocco, undefeated in two starts but making his first stakes start, won by five lengths in the Juvenile, while the New York sensation, Dehere, finished eighth in the worst performance of his career. Now Eclipse Awards voters, in considering their ballots for champion 2-year-old colt, must weigh Brocco's victory over Dehere against Dehere's four stakes victories in New York. Neither jockey Chris McCarron nor trainer Reynaldo Nobles could explain Dehere's dull performance as the 7-10 favorite.

Early Friday morning, Arnold Winick was on the telephone, talking to Laffit Pincay at the jockey's home. Winick, who bred Dontstop Themusic and helps manage the 6-year-old mare for owner Albert (Cubby) Broccoli, the producer of the James Bond films, called Pincay to see if he would be able to ride the horse in today's $100,000 Milady Handicap at Hollywood Park. Pincay suffered a sprained ankle in a spill on Thursday.

Kentucky Derby horses frequently run in the race the same way they have worked out for it. "Remember Ferdinand?" asked trainer Rodney Rash, who was an assistant to Charlie Whittingham when Ferdinand won the Derby at 17-1 in 1986. "Charlie kept telling everybody how great Ferdinand was doing after he arrived here, but nobody would listen to him. Charlie walked out of here with enough money to fill a wheelbarrow."

Mitterand is a 4-year-old filly who might have an "r" missing from her name, but that's about all she's lacking. What you see is what you get, and this filly's the total package. The small type on the results page shows that Mitterand won Sunday's $208,200 La Canada Stakes by three-quarters of a length at Santa Anita, but she was more convincing than that.

The Belmont Stakes lost one of its favorites Saturday morning when Brocco, the Santa Anita Derby winner, was scratched from the Triple Crown race because of a stone bruise to his right front hoof. Trainer Randy Winick said Brocco might have been injured during a three-furlong workout Thursday. "It didn't show up until Friday," Winick said. "It was in the best interests of the horse not to run him. If the race was three to five days later, we would have had no problem."
