The dispute between the owners of Risen Star and Eddie Delahoussaye ended Tuesday when the owners agreed to pay the jockey the $100,000 he said he deserved from the colt's million-dollar Triple Crown bonus. Terry Lipham, Delahoussaye's agent, said that the jockey would also be paid his expenses for riding Risen Star in the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes, which Delahoussaye said amounted to about $12,000.

The erstwhile black sheep of one of Kentucky's most pre- eminent horse-breeding families can make history today with a nearly black 3-year-old colt at Belmont Park. Arthur Hancock III, the formerly frustrated country-music composer, is a race away from sweeping the Triple Crown with Sunday Silence, who will be asked to add the Belmont Stakes to his Kentucky Derby and Preakness victories. Only 11 horses have won the Triple Crown--none since Affirmed in 1978--but this year's title would be easily the richest.

Risen Star, winner of this year's Preakness and Belmont Stakes, is being retired to stud, co-owner and trainer Louis Roussel III said Saturday. "I made a decision for the best of Risen Star and have always considered it best that we retire him," Roussel said. The son of Secretariat, whose 14 3/4-length victory in the Belmont stamped him as one of the nation's dominant horses, ran the race with an injured right foreleg, suffered in a pre-race workout.

Kandaly, an 8-1 shot with new ties to the Louisiana team that took Risen Star to two Triple Crown victories, closed rapidly in the stretch Saturday to win the $300,000 Louisiana Derby. Running in only his fourth race, Kandaly was well back early while Argolid set fast fractions of 22 3/5, 45 4/5 and 1:10 3/5. But Craig Perret guided Kandaly to the outside to win by 1 1/2 lengths. Kandaly covered 1 1/16 miles at the Fair Grounds in 1:42 4/5. Game Coin was second and Argolid third.

Owners of Jefferson Downs in suburban Kenner have agreed to pay $14.7 million for controlling interest in the Fair Grounds, the nation's third-oldest thoroughbred track. Louis Roussell III, majority Fair Grounds owner, said the deal included a commitment to excellence and $1.47 million in up-front money from the Krantz family of Jefferson Downs for purchase of his share in the 118-year-old Fair Grounds. Of the nation's thoroughbred tracks, only Saratoga and Pimlico are older.

Trainer Woody Stephens said Sunday that jockey Gary Stevens "rode a stupid race" in Saturday's Preakness and may have kept Winning Colors from winning. Winning Colors and Stevens were knocked around at least eight times in the Pimlico race by the Stephens-trained Forty Niner, with the 3-year-old filly settling for third place behind Risen Star and Brian's Time.

If they are playing "Call to the Post" when the baggage arrives at the airport carousel, this must be Derby week. . . . "I've got the same feeling a quarterback probably has before the Super Bowl," said Gary Stevens, who will ride Brocco on Saturday. "I'm excited, but I don't want to get too caught up in all the hype. You can think about it too much." . . . Stevens said he was humbled on his first Derby Day in 1985 before riding Tanks Prospect to a seventh-place finish. . . .

Louie Roussel had bad news for Eddie Delahoussaye and bad news for himself Monday. Roussel, the co-owner and trainer of Risen Star, will not pay jockey Eddie Delahoussaye a disputed $100,000 share of the $1-million Triple Crown bonus, and Roussel also said that the Preakness and Belmont Stakes winner will miss the Travers, hinting that the 3-year-old colt's career may be over.
