The only solemn moment on the schooner Yankee's 2 1/2-hour sightseeing sail happens a few minutes after the tall ship casts off from Atlantic City's Farley State Marina. Casting off is a dramatic moment. Captain Dave Franchetta and his two-man crew scurry over the broad deck, throwing off ropes as diesel engines gently move the 80-foot sailboat away from the dock. Passengers, sitting on wooden benches, stare up at the Yankee's twin masts and snap pictures of the receding tower of Trump's Castle, the sagging boat houses and the bright white Coast Guard station along the Snug Harbor Inlet.

Conquistarose, closing powerfully through the stretch at the Meadowlands Racetrack, tracked down front-running Damascus Drama near the wire to win the $500,000 Young America Stakes by a half-length last night in East Rutherford, N.J. Damascus Drama, who had burst ahead early and led by three lengths at the one-eighth pole, finished second in the field of nine 2-year-olds. Finishing third was Philadelphia Park-based Win Dusty Win, who was 1 1/2 lengths behind Damascus Drama. Sent off as the even-money favorite, Conquistarose paid $4, $2.40 and $2.40.

Woody Stephens and Philip Gleaves are the friendliest of competitors. When he worked for Stephens, Gleaves galloped the best horses in the barn and rose to be the chief assistant to the Hall of Fame trainer. Gleaves, 29 and a native of Liverpool, England, is training on his own now and quickly making his mark. The Gleaves-trained Wise Times won three straight Grade I races this summer, including a score in the Travers Stakes that denied Stephens his first win in the Saratoga Race Course classic.
