ELMONT, N.Y. -- Cigar is back on the track at Belmont Park for the first time since he won the Massachusetts Handicap two weeks ago with a bruised heel. He is merely jogging, but is being pointed toward more serious work later this week and, if everything seems sound, toward the special $1 million race that has been offered by Arlington Park in Chicago.The Arlington race, which would be run at a time chosen by Cigar's handlers, probably would be scheduled on July 13 or 14, giving Cigar about one month until his next scheduled race, the Pacific Classic at Del Mar in California on Aug. 10.The 6-year-old has a winning streak of 15 races and he needs one more to match the modern record set by Calumet Farm's Citation in 1948.

Jockey Mario Pino, an Ellicott City resident who has spent most of his career in Maryland, is close to joining horse racing's top 10 all-time North American wins list. Pino is just one win away from tying Hall of Fame rider Earlie Fires, who is currently at No. 10 with 6,470 career victories. Pino had three chance to tie Fires at Presque Isle Downs in Erie, Pa., on Thursday, but he went winless. Pino is scheduled to ride five horses at the track Friday. Pino, who celebrated his 51st birthday Saturday, set the top 10 as his goal about six years ago. "At the time, looking at how far away I was [about 470 wins away]

Arlington Park Racecourse yesterday asked a court for permission to distribute winnings to bettors on last year's Breeders' Cup who would have collected had fraud not occurred. Arlington, the track near Chicago where the races were held in October, withheld the payout on the Ultra Pick Six after authorities noticed a suspicious pattern involving the wager made by a Baltimore man. In a Pick Six, the bettor attempts to select the winners of six consecutive races. Derrick Davis, 29, held the only winning tickets.

Horse racing Jockey 'not likely to walk' after accident, agent says Jockey Rene Douglas may be paralyzed after being thrown from his mount during a race at Arlington Park, his agent said. Dennis Cooper said Douglas spent seven hours in surgery on Sunday at Chicago's Northwestern Memorial Hospital and afterward doctors told him his client could not feel his lower limbs. Cooper said doctors won't know Douglas' status for certain until swelling reduces in about two weeks. "They said he might not walk again ... he'll probably have use of his upper body, but they gave it to me straight that he's not likely to walk," Cooper told Bloodhorse.

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -- It is the Hotel California of racing. Arlington Park: You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.Cases of equine viral arteritis -- a disease infecting some horses at the Chicago area track -- are playing havoc with the Aug. 29 Arlington Million and have many Saratoga-based trainers faced with difficult decisions. Do you ship to Arlington Park not knowing there is in fact any way out?Horses are permitted to ship into Arlington, but five states, New York among them, will not let horses return until a number of precautionary steps are taken.

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. - Temperatures have dipped into the 30s and risen only into the 40s recently at Arlington Park, about 25 miles northwest of Chicago. Highs may reach 50 by the end of the week, but just barely, according to forecasts. "She likes it more than I like it," said John Salzman, the Maryland trainer, bracing against the chill as he grazed Xtra Heat outside her barn. Xtra Heat was one of the first Breeders' Cup horses to arrive at Arlington Park. Salzman sent her for the Sprint by van Oct. 6, the day after her three-length victory in the Phoenix Breeders' Cup at Keeneland.

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. - The 19th Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships will take place today at Arlington Park with more story lines than a soap opera. Its eight races worth nearly $14 million will decide Horse of the Year, anoint the early Kentucky Derby favorite and showcase American horses from coast to coast, as well as the classiest horses from Europe. "There is no doubt this is the Olympics of horse racing," said Aidan O'Brien, the Irish trainer. "I think this brings the world together if the European horses come to race against the Americans."

BARRY LEVINSON'S recall of the immigrant experience is a very sweet one, one that includes no awareness that the Krichinsky dynasty was different from others. His father wasn't made to feel ''different,'' as were so many other immigrants and sons of immigrants.That, at least, is the way the immigrant experience is dramatized in ''Avalon,'' the film Levinson did in Baltimore last year. Levinson, who was born and raised in Baltimore (his parents still live here), wrote and directed the film, the third he has done here.
