Steve Cauthen saw Affirmed at the farm about a month ago. "He had had recent surgery and was in pain," Cauthen said. "But this was Affirmed, and he had such a great heart. He always looked younger than what he was. You just didn't ever think of Affirmed dying. You thought he was a horse that would live forever." But the pain was too much.

Every time Steve Cauthen watches a videotape of Affirmed narrowly beating Alydar in the 1978 Belmont Stakes, the former jockey gets chills. "It was the most exciting race I ever rode in," Cauthen said the other day. "Just the buildup to it was unbelievable. Usually the anticipation is greater than the real thing, but that Belmont was the exception."

Jockey Eddie Delahoussaye's $100 million in purse money won is impressive, and exemplifies how much the purse money for horse racing has increased. Back in 1977, it took Steve Cauthen 487 victories to win $6.1 million in purse money--a record at the time. Recently, Gary Stevens, the nation's leading money winner, passed $6.1 million with about 125 wins. Someone said, "Figures lie and liars figure," but some simple math tells the story. Cauthen averaged about $12,500 for each of his 487 victories in 1977, and Stevens has averaged about $48,000 for his victories in 1991.

Jockey Steve Cauthen turned down a contract extension with Sheikh Mohammed al-Maktoum's Darley Stud Management and might quit riding in Britain, his agent said Monday. Cauthen was in his native Kentucky, but his agent, John Hanmer, said: "Steve was offered a retainer for the year by Sheikh Mohammed, but turned it down. As no one else would be able to offer him anything like that retainer. . . . I have my doubts as to whether he will return."

If Arazi runs in the Breeders' Cup Mile, jockey Steve Cauthen wants to be along for the ride. Cauthen is Arazi's regular rider when the 3-year-old colt races in Europe; Pat Valenzuela gets the mount in the United States. But Cauthen, who rode Arazi to his first victory in six months on Sunday at Longchamp, said he deserves to be aboard the one-time wonder horse for the Breeders' Cup on Oct. 31 at Gulfstream Park.

The call came on Christmas Eve and the timing was all wrong. Steve and Amy Cauthen were celebrating the holidays, looking forward to the birth of their first child.
