ELLIOTT'S CHASE: The NFL rushing leader had a 55-yard touchdown and finished with 80 yards on 12 carries. He needs 178 yards in the finale to break Eric Dickerson's 33-year-old rookie rushing record of 1,808 yards. "I always want to be out there, but I always know there is a bigger plan," Elliott said. "You don't want to risk anything."
Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert has the world's No. 1 horse in his barn in Arrogate. And he also has perhaps the No. 1 handicap horse in California in the improving Collected, a 4-year-old son of City Zip who romped to a 3 3/4-length victory in the $200,000 Californian Stakes on Saturday at Santa Anita. Ridden by Martin Garcia, Collected settled into second place behind pace setter Prime Attraction before taking charge going into the final turn and beating Follow Me Crev and Prospect Park in the 1 1/8-mile race. The final time was 1:47.73. "He's learned to relax and conserve his speed," Baffert said.
