An article in the Maryland section yesterday about a drug-trafficking case incorrectly reported the amount of cocaine that federal prosecutors said was sold by an organization. The amount was 500 grams.

In Sunday's editions, an article about the Breeders' Cup races mistakenly referred to the horses running in the Distaff race as if they were male. The race was for fillies and mares. Also in the same article, it was incorrectly reported that California had surpassed Maryland for the highest number of state-breds outside of Kentucky to win Breeders' Cup races. Maryland and California remain tied with Pennsylvania at three winners, and the three states trail Florida, with 19.

An article published in the Oct. 22 Maryland section, along with articles in previous editions, incorrectly described the legal status of Kirk Bloodsworth when he was freed from prison after DNA evidence led police to another suspect in the murder of a 9-year-old girl. At the time of his release in 1993, Bloodsworth was serving a life prison sentence. He had been sentenced to death in 1985, but that sentence was overturned by the Court of Appeals in 1986.

The Sun regrets the errors.
