Trainer Neil Howard has brought Summer Squall back to the scene of his greatest triumph, the 1990 Preakness Stakes, but this visit could be even more satisfying. Summer Squall may well score another victory over his archrival, Unbridled, only this time the trainer will not be driven crazy with questions about Lasix and the controversy over the drug. The topic dominated the whole Triple Crown series last year, and Howard said: "I'll never forgive everybody for what they put us through with Lasix.

A Summer Squall-Unbridled 1-2 finish in Saturday's Preakness might balance the Triple Crown rivalry between the colts, but it would do nothing for the series' $1-million bonus and turn the Belmont Stakes into an anticlimax. Triple Crown sponsors and officials are supposed to be neutral, but privately they are hoping that the Preakness result doesn't turn out to be Summer Squall first and Unbridled second, which would be a reversal of their positions in the Kentucky Derby.

The post-position draw brought out some contradictions for the 116th Kentucky Derby, which will be run Saturday at Churchill Downs. Undefeated Mister Frisky, who with 16 victories has the longest streak of any starter in Derby history, seemed to get a better spot than Summer Squall, yet Mike Battaglia, the line maker for Churchill Downs, stayed with his original thinking and made Summer Squall the 7-5 favorite.

Jockey Jerry Bailey stepped out of a shower at Turfway Park and walked over to a television monitor to watch a rerun of Saturday's $500,000 Jim Beam Stakes. "Hey," Bailey said, "are they going to call this the Pat Day race next year?" Day, making his fourth appearance in the stake, had won the Kentucky Derby prep for the fourth time. Day abandoned his first three winners--At the Threshold, J.T.'s Pet and Western Playboy--to ride other horses in the Derby but probably won't this time.

Unbridled was assigned the No. 5 post position today and was made an early 4-5 favorite to win Saturday's 122nd Belmont Stakes. Nine 3-year-olds were entered today for the $500,000-added stakes, which lack not only the Preakness winner Summer Squall but also the beaten Kentucky Derby favorite, Mister Frisky. Yonder was made the second early betting choice at 9-2 odds and will start from the No. 7 post.

Before taking on the Mister Frisky question, Summer Squall had to answer the Land Rush question. The gritty little 3-year-old responded with determination, leaving the eighth pole Saturday at Keeneland, pulling away from Land Rush for a 1 3/4-length victory under Pat Day in the Blue Grass Stakes, the next-to-last important prep for next month's Kentucky Derby.

Four years ago, a California trainer brought a horse to Belmont Park to run in a stake race. The horse was a bleeder, a thoroughbred who sometimes suffers from pulmonary hemorrhaging because of the stress of running. The trainer, who asked that his name not be used in this story, knew that the horse wouldn't be able to run on Lasix because of New York racing rules.

Trainer John Parisella has always had an affinity for the outlandish, so it's not too surprising to hear him say that he's throwing out Unbridled when the Kentucky Derby winner and Preakness runner-up runs Saturday in the Belmont Stakes. That pooh-poohing of Unbridled comes from the same conditioner who, a few days before the Kentucky Derby, gave a harsh critique of virtually every jockey who ever rode Country Day.
