LetspickaDerbywinner. Buthowdoyoudothat? ReadingtheDailyRacingForm? Throwingdarts? Goingbylooksorbycolor? Wellthatsstupid. Atswhatimtalknbout. Pick a Derby winner, the editor said. Analyze the field. Have a little fun. But you can't do all three. It's no fun to analyze the field. All those numbers, fractions even. My SAT math scores earned me a trip to the counselor's office for hearty congratulations on having the biggest difference between math and verbal scores he had ever seen.

Trainer Bobby Frankel said Empire Maker is ready to run in Saturday's Kentucky Derby, after which the 3-year-old drew the No. 12 post position and was installed as the 6-5 morning-line favorite. Empire Maker, who will be ridden by Jerry Bailey, is the shortest morning-line price for the Derby since Arazi was listed at 6-5 in 1992. Arazi, running after knee surgery, went off at 9-10 and finished eighth.

After shooing reporters and photographers away from his barn at Belmont Park all week, trainer Barclay Tagg quietly shipped Funny Cide from New York to Pimlico Friday afternoon. The Kentucky Derby winner arrived about 18 hours ahead of schedule. The testy Tagg, apparently feeling the pressure of his first Triple Crown campaign, said earlier in the week that Funny Cide wouldn't arrive until 8 this morning for today's Preakness.

Lots of heartfelt wishes were pulling Ventura toward the finish line Friday at Santa Anita, as the 5-year-old, Bobby Frankel -trained mare tried to chase down Informed Decision in the home stretch of the $1-million Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint. Ventura was the defending champion, but was 1 1/4 lengths shy and in second place this time. Frankel, a Hall of Fame trainer and recipient of five Eclipse Awards as the sport's trainer of the year, has been quietly battling cancer for about six months.

The bad news about the Eclipse Awards election is that 72 of the 319 voters didn't vote, or voted too late to make the counting. The worse news is that the name of Dave Wilson, the best apprentice jockey in Canada, was left off the ballot. Riding at Hastings Park--formerly Exhibition Park--in Vancouver and moving from that bullring to the big leagues at Woodbine in Toronto later in the year, Wilson rode 139 winners.

In keeping with the unusual happenings of the strangest winter meeting in years, Santa Anita announced before the improvised 11-race card began Monday that racing for Wednesday and Thursday, normally the next two racing days, had been postponed because of continued rain-related difficulty filling fields. The next racing is scheduled for Friday, with the two lost days to be made up, probably on Mondays, before the season ends on April 18.

When Annika Sorenstam tees off against the men early today, it will mark a rare event in golf, but not for women in sports. Sorenstam is competing in the Colonial, a men's PGA Tour event in Fort Worth, 58 years after Babe Didrikson Zaharias became the last woman to compete in such an event. Just in the last few months, women have played professional hockey in Finland, pro lacrosse in the U.S., and attempted an extra point in a major-college football game.
