Sitting outside Barn 109 at Santa Anita, nursing a cold, Steve Miyadi pointed to Barn 118, across the way. "I used to sleep over there, in the tack room," Miyadi said. "My wife, Rochelle--we weren't married yet--slept at the other end. We worked for (trainer) John Russell." The day was ripe for reminiscing. Miyadi, who grew up in nearby Rosemead, remembered the first time he saw the Santa Anita Derby. "It was the year (1973) that Sham beat Linda's Chief," Miyadi said. "How old could I have been?

El Roblar will make his 4-year-old debut on a surface on which he is unbeaten in the seventh race today at Santa Anita. Idle since finishing ninth of 10 in the Del Mar Derby last Sept. 5, El Roblar, a son of War Chant, is returning to the dirt for owner Jess Jackson's Stonestreet Stables LLC and trainer Richard Mandella in the $63,000 optional claimer at one mile. Purchased for $250,000 at the Keeneland September sale in 2003, El Roblar is two for two on the main track.

Jockey Freddy Fong and Lupita'sluckyangel, the 3-year-old Flying Continental filly he will ride in the third race today at Hollywood Park, have something in common. Lupita'sluckyangel is winless after seven starts in a career that began New Year's Day. Fong is also winless in 2006, having failed to score with his first 47 mounts. They will try to end their frustration in what is a weak start to the first pick six of the week in Inglewood.

Before his brother John tries to win the Belmont Stakes and the Triple Crown with Smarty Jones on Saturday, trainer Jason Servis will be after a far less significant prize today at Belmont Park. Jason Servis will send out Chocolate Brown against five other fillies in the $75,000 Fashion, the first 2-year-old stakes of the season in New York. Chocolate Brown, a daughter of Lion Hearted owned by Dennis Drazin, broke into the game April 8 at Aqueduct.

Only once in its first 22 runnings has the $200,000 Potrero Grande Breeders' Cup Handicap been won by an 8-year-old. First Intent got the job done in the Grade II in 1997, beating Hesabull and Northern Afleet, among others, for the Lima Family Trust and trainer Jack Carava. Another senior citizen, Hasty Kris, will try to win the same race as an 8-year-old this afternoon at Santa Anita when he takes on nine other sprinters. The race is part of a pick six with a carry-over of $164,202.

Aragorn will try to do something today he has yet to accomplish in his career when he runs in the $400,000 Eddie Read Handicap at Del Mar. Specifically, win two in a row. The 4-year-old son of Giant's Causeway has not won back-to-back in a career that has seen him win three of 10 while competing in England, Ireland and the U.S. Owned and bred by Ballygallon Stud Ltd.

When Dan Brown took out his trainer's license four years ago, he thought his barn would be a conduit for winners. "I was naive that way," Brown said. "This is the greatest game, but it's also the hardest." For a day, the game might have looked easy again to Brown, 34. He ran two-thirds of his three-horse stable at Santa Anita on Sunday, and the full brothers both earned paychecks, with Snow Kidd'n bringing in $66,600 for his victory at 14-1 in the $111,600 California Breeders' Champion Stakes.

Kentucky Derby winner Unbridled was made the early 7-5 favorite and drew the No. 6 post today for Saturday's Preakness. Summer Squall, who finished second at Churchill Downs, will start next to Unbridled at the No. 7 post and was the second betting choice at 2-1. Mister Frisky, who had been expected to be one of the top contenders in the Kentucky Derby but finished a disappointing eighth, drew the No. 9 post and was listed at 3-1.

There's extra incentive for Pat Valenzuela when he rides Saros Brig. The 6-year-old mare belongs to Earl Scheib and the jockey has a special affection for the owner. "He's like a second father to me," said Valenzuela. "I love the man. He calls me at home and he cares about me." Rider and owner also have a certain fondness for Saros Brig, who has certainly found a home on the turf.
