From Baltimore The sport of great expectations had to make do, yet again, with an exciting race and an excited audience Saturday. Hope springs eternal in horse racing, and then they run the Preakness. There will be no Triple Crown in 2011. But then, there hasn't been one since 1978, when Affirmed held off Alydar three times in what amounted to three match races. Hearts pounded for each leg of that competition and the thirst for more was reasonable, because Affirmed's Triple was the third of the 1970s.

Dale Romans' horse training operation is based at Churchill Downs in Kentucky, but he has set up a remote temporary home at Santa Anita Park for what could be an incredibly lucrative weekend. Romans, 46, has entered five horses, including Pacific Classic winner Dullahan and 2011 Preakness Stakes winner Shackleford, in the Nov. 2-3 Breeders' Cup in Arcadia and all five have been in Southern California for more than a week. In addition to Shackleford's entry in the Dirt Mile, Romans' Little Mike is in the Mile, and Sustained and Moon Walk are in the Juvenile Fillies Turf.

BALTIMORE -- Shackleford's clean run allowed him to hold off a late charge from Animal Kingdom to win the 136th running of the Preakness Saturday at Pimlico Race Course . Shackleford, trained by Dale Romans and ridden by Jesus Castanon, led most of the Kentucky Derby but was caught by a group that included Animal Kingdom and finished fourth. Many expected him to jump to an early lead but fade at the Preakness. He thrived running the shorter distance, though, and the early 12-1 shot won by about half a length.

Five story lines to watch in the 143rd running of the Belmont Stakes on Saturday: 1. How will Animal Kingdom handle the sandy track at Belmont Park? It seemed as if Animal Kingdom had put to rest any questions about how comfortable he is running on dirt after his impressive win at the Kentucky Derby. When he fell well back going around the first turn in the Preakness, though, it was clear that having a considerable amount of dirt and mud kicked in his face bothered him. Trainer Graham Motion said this week that he didn't blame jockey John Velazquez for putting the colt in that position.

Reporting from Baltimore Jesus Castanon is 38 years old. He has been a jockey since he was 16, and in all that time he had never won a Grade I race. That changed Saturday in a magnificent way when Castanon and Shackleford, a 12-1 shot, held off fast-closing favorite Animal Kingdom to win the 136th Preakness at Pimlico Race Course. "When I got to the top of the stretch, I knew I still had a lot of horse," Castanon said. "When I asked him to pick it up, I felt him get bigger.

The baby sitter's daughter scarcely slept the other night, the night before she was to head back to school. All night, she lay petrified on her little white bed, thinking of the teacher with the evil eye. Actually it's a glass eye, and scarcely noticeable, but the teacher who has it is daunting and gruff. It was said around the playground that if you didn't do your homework, she would pluck out her eye and send it to spy on you. The baby sitter's daughter had a checkered past regarding homework.

Ray Shackleford, the only football coach in the history of Golden West College, said Wednesday he is being forced to step down after this season. The college made the announcement in a statement Wednesday night but gave no reason. Shackleford, 56, said he will continue to teach at the college. "This is not my decision," Shackleford said. "It's also very inappropriate to announce it at this time. It should have come at the end of the season. That's all I really have to say."

Although junior guard Dwayne Shackleford said Thursday that he planned on applying for a medical redshirt and confirmed his desire to return to USC and play for new coach Rick Majerus next season, trainer Mark Pocinich said Shackleford's playing future was not so clear. "The arthritis in his knee is causing the swelling, but we haven't ruled out the entire season yet," Pocinich said.

Dwayne Shackleford did not play against Alcorn State on Sunday after experiencing swelling in the same knee that bothered him most of last season, but the senior guard said he expected to return for USC's game against No. 19 North Carolina on Wednesday. Shackleford was limited to 16 games last season after tearing cartilage in his left knee on the first day of practice.

Although the defensive dexterity of Jeff McMillan and the combined offensive prowess of Nick Young and Gabe Pruitt were the obvious catalysts in USC's slump-busting 82-71 defeat of Arizona State on Saturday, interim Coach Jim Saia was also quick to point out the leadership exhibited by Dwayne Shackleford. Leadership from a first-year player who had appeared in only three Pacific 10 Conference games to that point? "I ain't got no choice but to get in there ...

With Errick Craven's recent ineffectiveness and a lingering ankle injury, Dwayne Shackleford is poised to replace the senior guard in the USC rotation. "Oh yeah, Shack could easily take my minutes," said Craven, who today will have an MRI test on the right ankle he severely sprained in practice on Dec. 27. Earlier X-rays were negative. "The reality is, I could only get two minutes a game. It's been like that since my freshman year. Now I'm just like, 'OK, whatever.'

Dwayne Shackleford was not supposed to play in USC's season opener against UC Irvine. He wasn't even supposed to suit up. Good thing for the Trojans that he did. The junior point guard, who injured his left knee during the first week of practice, underwent arthroscopic surgery on Oct. 18 and did not play in either of USC's two exhibitions, proved to have a shooting touch as precise as the hands of his surgeon on Monday night at the Sports Arena.
