The track will show the Valley Junction Futurity for 2-year-old quarter horses and the Precisionist Breeders' Cup Handicap for older Thoroughbreds. Rulo Action is the 117-pound high-weight in the Precisionist, based on his record of being out of the money just twice this year while winning three of eight races. Leased and trained by Dean Bliss, Rulo Action is coming off a victory in an allowance race against T.J.'s Stalker, the winner of the Iowa Derby. At 116 pounds is Inspector Be Mine, who was third in an allowance race at Canterbury Downs near Minneapolis in his last race, and won a $30,000 claiming race in his previous start. T.J.'s Stalker is also entered in the Precisionist and will carry 113 pounds, the same as Ralph Hayes victor Dontforgethisname. Chess Set who was disqualified from a victory against Rulo Action earlier in the meet, is also weighted at 116 pounds. The Precisionist has 11 entrants, including six Iowa-breds T.J.'s Stalker, Dontforgethisname, 1989 Iowa Derby winner Very Gran, Mon-senor Brown, Dewantogo and Take The Affirmative. The purse for the Precisionist is $5,000, with another $5,000 available to horses who are Breeders' Cup eligi ble. Five of today's 11 horses are Breeders' Cup eligible. The Valley Junction has 10 horses entered, headed by Race Bandit, who won his trial in 20.80 seconds, the fastest time of the two trials. Prairie Meadows will also simulcast quarter horse racing's biggest By DAN JOHNSON Register Stiff Writer ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, ILL. -The third floor pavilion at Arlington International Racecourse features a life-size bronze statue of John Henry nipping The Bart in the 1981 Arlington Million, a finish now regarded as one of the most memorable in horse racing history. It might be time for Arlington to add another statue based on Sunday's 11th running of the Arlington Million. This time, the race was decided in a four-horse, head-bobbing finish won by 9-to-5 favorite Tight Spot and trainer by Ron McAnally, the same man who conditioned John Henry. "I compare it to the first Arlington Million," McAnally said. "This horse has the ability and desire to win." Tight Spot caught Chenin Blanc 100 yards from the wire and held off Al-genib by a head. Kartajana, who closed strongly along the rail, finished a neck back in third place, with Chenin Blanc another neck back in fourth place. Similar to 1983 Race John Henry was a two-time winner of the Arlington Million, but as Tight Spot took the lead Sunday, McAnally found himself thinking about the one John Henry lost. He was second in 1983 when 38-to-l long shot Tolomeo won the race by slipping through an opening along the rail. McAnally is convinced John Henry never saw Tolomeo, and Sunday, he feared something similar was about the happen to Tight Spot with Kartajana closing in. "It was an anxious moment," McAnally said. "When I saw the inside horse coming, I thought, 'Oh my goodness, not again.' Laffit (Pincay) rode a great race. He did a super job." Tight Spot was an average 3-year-old last year, but was switched to grass racing 14 month ago, and hasn't lost since. He is now 8-for-8 on the turf, and unbeaten in five races this year. Sunday's victory might have wrapped up an Eclipse award for Tight Spot as America's champion grass horse. Big Year for Owner The victory was the latest in a banner year for majority owner Verne Winchell. He also owns Olym-pio, winner of the American, Arkansas and Minnesota derbys, and Sea Cadet, another stakes winner. Winchell took a calculated gamble by running in the Arlington Million. His nine opponents paid $18,500 in nominating fees, but Tight Spot, a late nomination, had to pay $50,000 to get into the race. That wasn't a deterrent, McAnally said. "If you think about it, it wasn't $50,000, it was $31,500," McAnally said. "He had won all his races on the grass, and those seven races paid for the supplement." The time of 1 minute, 59 25 seconds was the second fastest in the Arlington Million's 11-year history. It was three-fifths of a second off a record record set by Perrault in 1982.

A 2,377 Mutuel handle 1163.606 By ROBIN FINN Naw York Timas NEW YORK, N.Y. - As the match wore on, Ivan Lendl began to use his groundstrokes to mangle the resolve of Goran Ivanisevic. And it hurt. The 12th-seeded Yugoslav teenager, whose temper packs the same punch as his tennis, couldn't will Lendl away. Lendl, a three-time U.S. Open champion determined to win his first Open since 1987, prevailed, 7-5, 6-7 (7-4), 6-4, 6-2. The victory, a 3-hour 30-minute exchange of stinging shots between two baseliners with a penchant for punishing the ball, moved the fifth-seeded Lendl into the quarterfinal round of the Open for the 10th consecutive year. Lendl's next opponent is third-seeded Michael Stich, who despite his qualms about the quirks in his hardcourt performance, overcame a challenge from Derrick Rostagno, the upset specialist, and advanced with a 6-2, 3-6, 6-1, 7-6 (7-4) victory. Stich, who has advanced to the quarterfinal round of three successive Grand Slam events, said he wasn't about to let a slight case of disorientation spoil his progress. "I don't like the way I'm playing right now; I just don't have the touch for the surface and for the ball and not the right timing," he said. Stich was pushed into a five-set match by MaliVai Washington in the previous round and worried through a fourth-set tie breaker before escaping Sunday. "Today it was just a question of surviving. The quarterfinals were my goal, and I'm there, and just three more matches. I think I also can win it." It was easy to trace Rostagno's problems with Stich, the late-bloomer who has been thriving on his anonymity in Manhattan after a raucous month of team tennis back in Germany after his Wimbledon triumph. The Californian forgot how to concentrate and could not keep his eye on the ball. "I had moments, games even, New rules help Illini avoid upset From Register Wire Services CHAMPAIGN, ILL. - College football officials have been told to enforce a new hard-line rule on taunting and excessive celebrations by being quick to call penalties. The quick call Saturday hurt East Carolina and helped Illinois escape with a 38-31 victory at Memorial Stadium in Champaign. After East Carolina pulled to within seven points with 1 minute 46 seconds remaining, the Pirates' Clayton Driver recovered the on-side kick at their 46-yard line. But in the ensuing celebration, East Carolina was called for unsportsmanlike conduct. The cause of the penalty remained unclear after the game. Illinois Coach John Mackovic said Big Ten referee Jim Kemerling told him it was because Driver spiked the ball. "The player spiked the ball," Mackovic said. "I don't think it was a bad call. It was an appropriate call." The replays, though, seemed to indicate otherwise. Driver and a teammate jumped up and down a few times, and in the middle of one of those jumps he dropped the ball. Then he danced off to the East Carolina sideline. "What they said was that we celebrated in their bench area," East Carolina Coach Bill Lewis said. "I've never heard of people drawing lines as to where you can celebrate." Instead of having a first down and 10 from near midfield, East Carolina got stuck with a first down and 25 "That extra 15 yards put them in a territory where they had to complete three big passes," Mackovic said. "If the ball is on the 50, you're looking at four throws in the end zone." East Carolina, which had rallied back from a 38-10 deficit, never got a first down. ISU'S OPPONENT. Eastern Illinois, which will play Iowa State at Ames on Saturday, piled up 351 yards rushing Saturday night in a 62-16 romp against Lock Haven at Charleston, 111. Freshman Bill Korosec ran for 119 yards and senior Jamie Jones gained 104 yards for Eastern Illinois, an NCAA Division I-AA team. Jeff Thome passed for three touchdowns in the first half as Eastern Illinois built a 34-3 lead. He had scoring passes of 8 yards to Terrence Hickman, 42 and 10 yards to Jason Cook. SHERRILL DELIVERS. Jackie Sherrill said he would change things at Mississippi State, and it took him just one game to deliver. Sherrill's Bulldog coaching debut featured a no-huddle offense, a thrilling quarterback, a non-scholarship kickoff team and the biggest victory margin for a Mississippi State team Gabriela Sabatini of Argentina , reaches for a shot during her fourthv round U.S. Open victory against Jana ' Novotna of Czechoslovakia Sunday. ." where I felt really awake, but it was difficult to concentrate," Rostagno ... said. Rostagno upset John McEnroe in the first round at Wimbledon last year and eliminated Pete Sampras, the defending Open champion, in the second round there this year. He had similar designs on detouring Stich, but lost sight of them. "At times I would lose sight of the ball for no apparent reason," he said. "I'd play a few good points and then play the worst point ever, I made such bad decisions." So did Jana Novotna, who decided, ..' before her fourth-round match with Gabriela Sabatini that it was time to take a more assertive game plan onto the Stadium Court. The trouble was, Novotna's volley didn't work for her, , a plight that sabotaged her plans. Sabatini, seeded third, transformed , herself into a serve-and-volley player and occasional improviser, and captured her first Grand Slam title three . months later at the Open. Novotna's changes Sunday were less successful,, and she lost to Sabatini, 6-4, 7-6 (7-4),, "At important moments I was not , aggressive enough in the past, I always waited for her mistakes; today I wanted to come in, to pressure her, but the major point was I was not good at net at all," Novotna said. Sabatini advanced to face Jennifer Capriati in the quarterfinals when Novotna followed a big forehand approach toward the net only to bury her backhand volley in the mesh.

They are chosen from five geographical regions: Atlantic. South. Midwest. Southwest and West. in a dozen years. Mississippi State crushed Fullerton State, 47-3, Saturday night in the most lopsided game at Scott Field in Starkville, Miss., since the Bulldogs' : 48-0 rout of Marshall in 1979. "You can see that everything's different," fullback William Prince said, i "Coach Sherrill came in and changed ; the attitude of everybody." Sleepy Robinson showed off a daz- ! zling running style in his debut as the ; No. 1 quarterback. Robinson ran for ' 97 yards and guided the offense with ' poise. "Sleepy basically just took over," ; Prince said. "He proved tonight he ' can lead us to where we need to be the Sugar Bowl." That type of statement reflects the changes at Mississippi State since Sherrill took over in December. t A year ago Mississippi State's offense sputtered. Saturday it scored its,, highest point total since 1980. The; Bulldogs had four touchdowns in their' first five possessions. '""J RACING ELSEWHERE FORMAL VICTORY. Black Tie Affair lost the lead near the top of the stretch and then regained it in the run to the wire to win by a neck over Farma Way in the $500,000 Philip H. Ise-lin Handicap at Monmouth Park ion Ocean-port, N.J., Sunday. Before the result was made official, Black Tie Affair had to survive both a stewards' inquiry and an objection lodged by Farma Way's jockey Chris McCarron for alleged interference in the stretch. Television replays seemed to show that the two horses brushed slightly down the stretch, but officials ruled it in no way affected the outcome of the race. Black Tie Affair finished the 1V mile race for 3-year-olds and up in 1 minute 47 45 seconds. Farma Way earned seven points in the American Championship Racing Series, moving into a tie for the lead with Festin, who skipped this event. The final race of the series will be the Woodward on Sept. 15 at Belmont. HAIL TO THE QUEENA. Queena earned her third straight stakes victory Sunday, a hard-fought triumph over Fit to Scout in Belmont Park's $200,000 Grade I Maskette Stakes for fillies and mares 3 years and older in Elmont, NY. Fit to Scout's finished fast and was second in the six-horse field. Screen Prospect was third.
