Tammany regained the lead from Pretty Amusing in the final strides to capture the $19,000 Equalize Purse at Laurel Race Course yesterday.

The son of Mr. Prospector saved ground along the rail with jockey Rick Wilson to complete 1 1/16 miles in 1:47 4/5. Pretty Amusing rallied down the center of the track under Donnie Miller Jr. Tammany paid $9.40 as the slight favorite in the field of nine 2-year-olds.

In the day's second race, Titan Ribot, a 10-year-old gelding, got his 28th victory in his 100th career start.


Carson City, ridden by Jerry Bailey, led all the way and set a stakes record in winning the $114,000 Boojum Stakes.

Carson City's time of 1:08 for six furlongs on the fast track was one-fifth of a second faster than the previous record for the Grade III stakes set last year by Mr. Nickerson, this year's runner-up. It was one-fifth of a second off the track record set by Groovy in 1987.

Woodbine: French Glory, running his first race in North America, blew past longshot Sky Classic at the top of the stretch and won the $1 million Rothmans International at the Toronto track.

The Irish-bred 9-5 favorite, ridden by Briton Pat Eddery, ran 1 1/2 miles over the rain-softened turf in 2:34 4/5, winning by 1 1/4 lengths.

French Glory, trained by Andre Fabre, earned $619,650 from the record purse of $1,032,750.
