Scotty Schulhofer, a 60-year-old trainer, has never been to Louisville, much less run a horse in the Kentucky Derby. About two decades back, Schulhofer spent four years working for Tartan Stable, whose general manager, John Nerud, stayed away from the Derby after his brilliant Gallant Man ran second to Iron Liege when jockey Bill Shoemaker misjudged the finish line in 1957.

When Julie Krone, at 39, announced last month that she was going to ride horses again, there were many skeptics, one of whom was the retired Scotty Schulhofer, the trainer who put her on Colonial Affair in the Belmont Stakes in 1993, when Krone became the first -- and still only -- woman to win a Triple Crown race.

The winter books on the Kentucky Derby do not offer father-son exactas. If they did, it would be time to box trainer Scotty Schulhofer and his son, Randy. Quickly, before Scotty runs Fly So Free in the Fountain of Youth at Gulfstream Park Saturday and the odds drop. A communique from one Las Vegas "resort" says Fly So Free, the 2-year-old champion of 1990, is the shortest price, 7-1, of all the 3-year-olds eligible for the Derby.

Hall of Fame trainer Max Hirsch, who won the Belmont Stakes four times, one of them with Triple Crown champion Assault in 1946, once gave Scotty Schulhofer some advice. "Keep yourself in the best of company, but keep your horses in the worst," Hirsch said. "Do that, and you'll be all right." Schulhofer also was voted into the Hall of Fame, in 1992, the year before he won the first of his two Belmont Stakes.

Hall of Fame trainer Scotty Schulhofer won the Pegasus Handicap at the Meadowlands for the fourth time when Scuffleburg, who had never run in a stakes race in 14 lifetime starts, rallied in the stretch to beat Nines Wild by 1 1/2 lengths. The Julie Krone-ridden son of Cox's Ridge covered 1 1/8 miles on a fast but wet track in 1:49. Technology, the 6-5 favorite who had won the Haskell Invitational and two other stakes earlier this year, didn't like the wet track and finished a well-beaten sixth.

Scan, a 2-year-old colt who might be headed for California after today, is one of the favorites in the $200,000 Remsen at Belmont Park. A stablemate of Fly So Free, Scan won the Cowdin at Belmont the day after Fly So Free won the Breeders' Cup Juvenile to virtually clinch the divisional title. Scotty Schulhofer, who trains both colts, will have a division of horses in California this winter, and Scan is expected to be part of that group.

Fly So Free's victory in the $92,455 Hutcheson Stakes at Gulfstream Park Saturday was nothing compared to what trainer Scotty Schulhofer thinks the 3-year-old colt can do. "The (Kentucky) Derby is our big objective and you want to get there in stages. You don't want to do too much too soon," Schulhofer said after Fly So Free raced seven furlongs in 1:23 1/5. Fly So Free's next race probably will be either the 1 1/16-mile Fountain of Youth Feb.
