Rapper M.C. Hammer's family would probably prefer he stick to the concert stage and stay away from the race track, at least when the family's horses are running. His family's Oaktown Stable horses have gone 0-for-3 when Hammer has gone to the track to watch. The latest occasion was Saturday when the filly Drouth Willow finished fifth in the eighth race at Golden Gate Fields in Albany, Calif., despite the exhortations of Hammer and other family members. "That's OK. We'll just have to take if from here," said Hammer's father, Lewis Burrell Sr. The rapper's real name is Stanley Burrell.
