     Rydilluc brings flawless stride to talented Virginia Derby field
    NEW KENT — It didn't take Gary Contessa long to fall for Rydilluc. In horse racing terms, it was the closest representation you'll find of love-at-first-sight. Contessa has been a New York-based horse trainer for more than three decades. He has...

    Oxbow's Preakness victory doesn't spoil anything

    Out of 'Luck,' Gary Stevens gets back in the saddle
    The comeback of Gary Stevens was never intended for a real Triple Crown race aboard a horse named Oxbow. No preconceived game plan put him in the winner's circle at the Preakness last month, much less on his way to Saturday's Belmont Stakes. Stevens'...
  • Craig Lewis looking for a big finish in last Gold Cup

    All things considered, Craig Lewis should be spending his days alongside a jury box, not a racing rail. He should be doing battle with Mark Geragos, not Bob Baffert. Lewis is much happier in boots and jeans than coat and tie. As a student at Cal, he did...
