Unbridled's Song, the Kentucky Derby favorite who ran fifth despite a sore left front hoof at Churchill Downs, was declared out of the Preakness by his trainer Tuesday. The defection of Unbridled's Song will leave Cavonnier, barely beaten by Grindstone in the Derby, as the 8-5 favorite for the Preakness, which will be run Saturday at Pimlico.

Unbridled's Song, who overcame brittle bones, sore feet, a lung infection, ulcers, a bleeding condition and suspect handling to win major races in New York and Florida and earn $1.3 million, has been retired. Galloping Friday at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale, Fla., in preparation for the Donn Handicap next Saturday, Unbridled's Song broke a cannon bone in his left foreleg. The injury is the second break in that leg but is not life-threatening and is expected to heal in about six months.

Unbridled's Song, the favorite for Saturday's Kentucky Derby, became a doubtful starter Tuesday after those in his camp worked overtime to alleviate a foot problem that developed when he won the Wood Memorial on April 13.

The guessing game about where Unbridled's Song would run next apparently ended Friday when the troubled colt was entered in Sunday's $150,000 Peter Pan Stakes at Belmont Park. Since his fifth-place finish as the favorite in the Kentucky Derby on May 4, Unbridled's Song has had several false starts, but his enigmatic owner, Ernie Paragallo, said Friday that the Peter Pan should be the best fit.

The large white message board, which stood on an easel in front of Unbridled's Song's barn all week, was there to give reporters quickie information about the horse. It contained two messages Saturday. Before the Kentucky Derby, it said: "Unbridled's Song's Doing Great." After the Derby, it read: "Unbridled's Song . . . We'll Be Back!!" Maybe he will be, in the Preakness, the next leg of the Triple Crown, in two weeks.

Unbridled's Song, a horse who doesn't know where his next pair of shoes is coming from, must overcome a left-front hoof problem, a bad post position and the early favorite's bugaboo if he is to win the 122nd Kentucky Derby today. Unbridled's Song isn't the only horse with a foot problem. City By Night, who had an abscess in his left front foot, was scratched after he was relegated to the parimutuel field, which meant the Churchill Downs handicapper, Mike Battaglia, gave him little chance.

His sire, Unbridled, won the 1990 Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs and the Breeders' Cup Classic at Belmont Park, but that is not what makes the appearance of Unbridled's Song so intriguing in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile here on Saturday. This is the same gray colt who went through the sales ring in March at the Barretts auction in Pomona. A Japanese importer-exporter, Hiroshi Fujita, outbid Sid Craig and Wayne Lukas and bought the horse for $1.

There was good news in the morning, then bad news at night for Unbridled's Song, the troubled favorite for Saturday's Kentucky Derby. Trainer Jim Ryerson pulled a surprise by working Unbridled's Song five furlongs in still another new shoe that protected his cracked hoof, and the gray colt surprised those in the clockers' stand by coming home ona fast track in :59 1/5, perhaps the fastest pre-Derby workout since Forego was timed in :57 four days before he ran fourth in the 1973 race.
