Another Colt That Likes to Chase Fillies

When it comes to running with the fillies, Leinart the horse is no match for Leinart the quarterback. Leinart, a 3-year-old colt named for Heisman winner Matt Leinart, finished fourth Saturday in his debut in the $45,400 fourth race at Hollywood Park. The colt is owned by Scott Heider, a USC graduate whose horses race in the Trojans' cardinal and gold colors (halfway down on page). The Kentucky-bred Leinart cost $90,000 at the 2004 Keeneland September Yearling sale. The quarterback, the No. 1 pick of the NFL's Arizona Cardinals, has yet to be given a value. He's still unsigned.
