Steinlen, the even-money favorite, took command in the upper stretch and won the $108,400 Inglewood Handicap for the second consecutive year before 28,622 at Hollywood Park Sunday. Steinlen, ridden by Gary Stevens and carrying high weight of 120 pounds, covered 1 1/16 miles on Hollywood Park's turf course in a stake record 1:39 3/5. Steinlen, who won by 2 1/4 lengths, returned $4, $2.40 and $2.20. The victory was the 12th in 29 starts for Steinlen and was worth $63,400. It increased the 6-year-old son of Habitat's career earnings to $1,040,018.

Trainer Vladimir Cerin jokingly said that he is tempted to turn on the track sprinklers every time he runs Lonesome Dude. There was no need for such chicanery Sunday at Hollywood Park. An overnight rain left the grass course slightly damp, the way Lonesome Dude likes it, and Cerin's 6-year-old made a late run to win the $73,500 Steinlen Handicap by three-quarters of a length.

On a day when red, white and blue would have been more fitting, trainer Gary Jones wore a green sportcoat to the winner's circle on Wednesday at Hollywood Park. "The luck of the Irish," Jones said. "I wore this coat the first time this horse won, and I'm still wearing it." The horse that determined Jones' garb is Classic Fame, a Kentucky-bred, Irish-raced import who came between horses with a sixteenth of a mile to run and won the $216,800 American Handicap by three-quarters of a length.

The Arlington Million tops a weekend of racing at Arlington International that includes Saturday's $500,000 Beverly D. and Monday's $250,000 Secretariat. Steinlen, the 7-year-old English-bred owned by Daniel Wildenstein, is aiming to become the first to win the Million in successive years Sunday. John Henry is the only two-time winner of the 1 1/4-mile grass event. The famed gelding won the inaugural Million in 1981 with Bill Shoemaker aboard, nosing out The Bart in the final jump.

Bill Shoemaker, the 57-year-old ramblin' man of racing, is never quite sure where he'll be waking up these days. It could be in snowy Chicago, rainy Portland, or in the seat of a 747 midway across the Atlantic, heading for yet another special appearance on his farewell tour of racing's far-flung outposts. Of one thing he is certain, however: If he finds himself on a colt named Peace in a grass race at Hollywood Park, he is bound win one more time. Peace, bred and owned by Tom Gentry of Lexington, Ky., kept his record perfect on Hollywood's close-cropped Bermuda with a three-quarter length victory over the relentless Steinlen in Sunday's $163,900 John Henry Handicap.

Bill Shoemaker's locker in the jockeys' room at Hollywood Park is typical of the man. But for one item, it could belong to almost any rider. The fading newspaper photograph, however, identifies it as Shoemaker's space and no one else's. Pinned to the wall, the photo shows Shoemaker carrying his daughter, Amanda, in his arms, and the headline above reads: "$100-Million Jockey." The picture was taken in 1985, after a victory aboard Lord at War at Santa Anita had pushed Shoemaker's career earnings over the $100-million mark.

Mister Wonderful II's trainer was in Argentina and his scheduled jockey was in Chicago, but the important thing for the 6-year-old on Tuesday was that his mind was in the right place. In a furious stretch drive that involved most of the eight-horse field, Mister Wonderful II was the widest and fastest of all, winning the $318,600 American Handicap by a nose over the 4-5 favorite, Steinlen, before 31,661 at Hollywood Park.

Steinlen apparently is going to keep running in the American Handicap until he gets it right. Second in the 1 1/8-mile grass race the last two years, Steinlen faces six opponents in the $200,000 stake today, when he will be favored for the third consecutive time.

Steinlen, making his first start since finishing second in the Breeders' Cup Turf race behind 1988 champion turf filly Miesque in November, withstood the challenge of Peace to win the $60,000 Project Hope Purse at Santa Anita Thursday. Ridden by Laffit Pincay, Steinlen equaled the turf course record of 1:34 1/5 for one mile while carrying 118 pounds. Peace, with Bill Shoemaker up, finished 5 lengths ahead of Exclusive Partner in the field of six. Steinlen paid $3.40, $2.60 and $2.20.

Defending champion Steinlen heads a field of 14 horses invited to run in the 10th Arlington Million on Sept. 2, officials of Arlington International Racecourse said. Nine other American horses, three from England and one from Canada complete the lineup, officials said. The six alternates, to be moved up in case of scratches, consist of four Americans and two Canadians. No Irish or French horses are entered this year. Besides Steinlen, the other U.S.

Days like this have become almost routine for Wayne Lukas. About four hours after the trainer watched Steinlen go wire-to-wire in the $500,000 Caesars International Handicap on the East Coast, another member of Team Lukas, Deposit Ticket, was the game winner of the $101,500 Hollywood Juvenile Championship at Hollywood Park.

Wayne Lukas' barn, which swept the three stakes at Belmont Park during the weekend, kept right on winning Monday at Hollywood Park as Steinlen caught Hawkster in the stretch to win the $500,000 Hollywood Turf Handicap by a neck before a crowd of 30,091. "This ranks right up there with the Breeders' Cup," Lukas said, referring to the day at Churchill Downs in 1988 when he saddled horses that won three of the seven million-dollar races.

The 1 1/8-mile John Henry Handicap on the turf at Hollywood Park has not been kind to Steinlen. Victorious in 18 of his 37 starts, the 1989 Eclipse Award winner has encountered only frustration in this Grade II race. After being beaten by two lengths by Deputy Governor in the 1988 John Henry, Steinlen ran second again last year, finishing three-quarters of a length behind course specialist Peace. If Steinlen is going to win Sunday's race, he will have to hustle.

Steinlen stamped himself a major turf performer Sunday by winning the $111,700 Premiere Handicap at Hollywood Park for his third straight victory. The English-bred 5-year-old raced in the middle of the pack of eight horses until the turn for home, where he responded to the urging of jockey Gary Stevens and held off the closing bid of European invader Siyah Kallem, making his first American start.

Although a relatively obscure figure today, Theophile-Alexandre Steinlen (1859-1923) was one of the most popular poster and graphic artists in belle eepoque Paris. He obviously adored cats, and depicted their every mood, capturing the gloss of a sleek coat, the extension of a stretch or the sensual luxury of a pose in a few sensitive lines or brush strokes.

Of the three races Wayne Lukas won Sunday at Santa Anita, it was the least impressive. Still, 1989 Eclipse Award winner Steinlen did what he was supposed to in his second start as a 7-year-old. The 125-pound highweight and even-money favorite in the $108,900 El Rincon Handicap, Steinlen beat Bruho by a head while covering the mile in 1:33 2/5. While the time was a stakes record, it should be noted that Miami Dan, who was one for 17 before Sunday, had gone 1:34 in winning the fifth race.
