After three days of suspense, Laffit Pincay got off the fence Friday and announced that he will ride Stephan's Odyssey in the Kentucky Derby May 4. Pincay, who rode Stephan's Odyssey to victory in the Lexington Stakes at Keeneland Tuesday, also had been the first choice to ride Skywalker, the winner of the Santa Anita Derby. "It was a tough choice," said Pincay's agent, Tony Matos. "But the (Derby) looks like a lot of speed, so I chose the horse that comes off the pace."

Trainer Carl Nafzger, at Santa Anita with Coolawin for Sunday's Yellow Ribbon Stakes, said he will take Breeders' Cup Classic and Kentucky Derby winner Unbridled and Super Derby winner Home At Last to Gulfstream Park in Florida for the winter but will consider sending Unbridled here for the Santa Anita Handicap and Home At Last here for the Charles H. Strub Stakes. Trainer Bill Shoemaker is getting Fire The Groom, winner of the Aqueduct Budweiser Breeders' Cup Saturday, this week.

Making his first start since winning the Lanes End Futurity at Keeneland on Oct. 4, Eurosilver did what he was supposed to do Wednesday at Gulfstream Park in Florida. One of three 3-year-olds in trainer Nick Zito's barn with Triple Crown aspirations, the Unbridled's Song colt beat his four overmatched rivals by five lengths as the 1-5 favorite.

Given his dominance of the jockey standings at Churchill Downs, Pat Day is nearly certain to make history today in Louisville, Ky. The runaway leader at the track's spring-summer meet with 45 victories and winning at a 34% clip, Day is one win away from becoming the third rider to win 8,000 races. Trying to join Laffit Pincay Jr. and Bill Shoemaker in the exclusive club, Day has seven mounts on Churchill Downs' 10-race card and none is higher than 9-2 on the morning line.

Eighth in the Santa Anita standings a year after he won his 13th title at the Arcadia track, Laffit Pincay split with longtime agent Tony Matos Tuesday morning. The world's second winningest rider, the 43-year-old Pincay will now team with Jerry Ingordo, who spent 11 years with Pat Valenzuela before severing that relationship last fall. Most recently, Ingordo worked for Gary Boulanger, who, after limited success locally, departed several weeks ago and is now riding at Longacres.

Once again, Sir Beaufort was well supported in the $82,800 La Puente Stakes Wednesday at Santa Anita. He was the 11-10 favorite, marking the seventh time in eight career starts that he has been the public choice. Never have the odds on the Pleasant Colony colt been longer than 9-5. For a change, Sir Beaufort didn't disappoint his fans. He won for only the second time, beating 5-2 second choice Shapiro's Hero by three-quarters of a length in 1:49 1/5.

Ron McAnally said he wasn't surprised by Coastal Voyage's 8-1 upset in the $106,900 Sierra Madre Handicap Wednesday at Santa Anita. In fact, the trainer could hardly believe that the 6-year-old went off at such a healthy price, the fifth-longest shot in the field of seven. "I really liked this horse today," McAnally said after his fourth stakes victory of the meeting, the most he has had at Santa Anita since he won five in 1982. "He's a genuine racehorse," McAnally said.

Today isn't a day for faint-hearted horseplayers at Santa Anita. There will be 14 races on which to wager, beginning with the seven Breeders' Cup events at 10:55 a.m. After the Breeders' Cup Classic, there will be seven races run locally. The feature, which will be run as the 13th race, is the $84,600 Morvich Handicap at 6 1/2 furlongs on the turf. Oraibi is the probable favorite in the Morvich, which has attracted 10 other starters.
