SAN ANTONIO — lf trainer Tom Amoss has his wish, Faye’s Wish will find much easier company in Saturday's $25,000 New Braunfels Stakes and present the talented Louisiana trainer his second stakes victory at Retama Park in two weeks.
Highlighted by the addition of Faye's Wish, The New Braunfels Stakes wijl feature a talented group of 12 fillies arid mares, competing at a distance of one mile on Retama s turf course.
Robert Sabinske's Faye's Wish ships to San Antonio from Kentucky with a solid record on the ttirf; three wins in four races. But her last venture over the Keenland turf course, a fifth-place finish in the Palisades Stakes on April 20, proved to be a task even Amos admits was a bit ambitious.
"There were some serious horses in the race," said Amoss, who won his first stakes race at Retama Park on May 6, when Empire Pool proved victorious in the $25,00 Julep Cup. "That was the first time I'd run her since New Orleans (Fair Grounds). She's a very nice, developing horse. But to have put her in against those fillies...it was a bit tough. We're just fortunate that Retama Park and Louisiana Downs offers good grass races that we can spot our horses with."
Amoss said the pace as well as the competition in the Palisades didn't suit his three-year-old Chromite filly.
"The winner of the race, Miss Union Avenue., she was fabulous," Amoss said from his bam at Churchill Downs. "She set the pace throughout. Our game is to come from off the pace and use her late kick to pass horses."
Faye's Wish, a career earner of $43,929, posted an easy three-furlong workout at the Louisiana Downs on Wednesday in .38 and 2/5 seconds breezing. She will break from post position three and will be ridden by Corey Lanerie.
The remainder of the field includes; Lone Star Stella (Enc Pemer), Family
Secrets (Kenny Sides), Pak Kaw (Austin Lovelace), Annickaye (Alan Dupuy), Cozy Moment (John Woodley), Suz E. Social (R.D. Williams), Fancy Smile (Rodney Trader), Miss Bec Gold (Michelle Berryman), Ben Cat (Tim Brown) and Clairessa (Darbic Coco).

Kidd, Hill share NBA rookie honor
By DENNE H. FREEMAN
Associated Press Writer
DALLAS (AP) — Saying that with hard work anything can be achieved, guard Jason Kidd today became the first Dallas Maverick to win the NBA’s Rookie of the Year award, tying Detroit forward Grant Hill in balloting.
Each player received 43 first-place votes out of a possible 105 from media members.
The pair are the first co-winners of the award since Boston’s Dave Cowens and Portland’s Geoff Petrie shared it in 1970-71.
"My teammates are a big reason why I won this award,” the 22-year-old Kidd said. "They are all part of this award. It feels great to win because I had set this as a personal goal on draft day. And it shows if you work hard, you can achieve anything.”
Kidd started 79 games, averaged 11.7 points and led all NBA rookies by finishing among the league’s top IO in steals (1.91) and assists (7.7) per game. He also had four triple doubles, all within a three-week span in April.
He’s the first Maverick to win any sort of a prestigious NBA award since Roy Tarpley was voted Sixth Man of the Year in 1988.
Mavericks coach Dick Motto said Kidd deserves the honor.
"He’s got star wntten all over him,” Motta said. “He works hard, he plays hun, he’s coachable, and he’s a lot of fun to watch. Barring serious injury, he has a serious chance to be All-Pro.”
Hill, the top overall vote-getter for the All-Star Game, had been the fron-trunner for the award.
He averaged 19.9 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 70 games for Detroit, which finished eight games better than last season at 28-54.
The Mavericks could have drafted Hill with the second-overall pick in last summer’s draft, but they instead chose Kidd
Kidd had a slow start, but wound up the season with impressive numbers and dazzling play. He led the Mavericks to 23 more victories than they had the previous season, an improvement that nearly landed them in the playoffs.
Hill averaged 19.9 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 70 games for Detroit, which finished eight games better than last season at 28-54.
