From the time he was 17, entrepreneur Ben Cohen had only himself as a boss -- becoming with his partner and brother Herman a liquidator and builder, and a pioneer in Baltimore television broadcasting.But most of all, he was a noted sportsman -- co-owner for 34 years of Pimlico Race Course, and owner with his wife, Zelda, of many thoroughbreds, including 1965 Belmont Stakes winner Hail All.On Monday at Sinai Hospital, less than a mile from the Pimlico backstretch, Mr. Cohen died of complications of old age. He was 94."

Pimlico Race Course opened Oct. 25, 1870, making it the second-oldest racetrack in the country, behind Saratoga, which debuted in 1864. Few tracks boast a richer history than Pimlico, where such legendary horses as Man O' War and Secretariat graced its barns and thundered down its stretch. The Seabiscuit-War Admiral match race in 1937 remains one of sports' most famous events. Each May, the Preakness attracts 100,000 revelers and shines a national spotlight on Pimlico. But age and lack of resources for upgrades have taken their toll, and Pimlico has fallen into disrepair.

WASHINGTON -- Cutting down or scaling back are not words usually associated with Ben Cohen.Cohen, a co-founder of Ben and Jerry's Homemade Inc. -- the Vermont-based company that indulges America's appetite for ice cream with flavors like Cherry Garcia, Chubby Hubby and Chunky Monkey -- long ago swore off the minimalist approach. Since he and partner Jerry Greenfield started selling ice cream out of a renovated gas station in 1978, they have been adding more chocolate, more nuts, more fudge and more caramel to their calorie-laden treats.

Forget speed and fast action. Yesterday's double stakes menu at Pimlico Race Course was a testament to patience.In the initial running of the $75,000 Ben Cohen Stakes, a 5-year-old horse with a mere 12 career starts cashed in thanks to cautious care from his handlers. And in the $35,000 Debby's Turn Stakes for 2-year-olds, a filly with a jinxed mother finally made good for its owners some five years after a costly claim.In the Ben Cohen, named for the former owner of Pimlico who died earlier this year, the race went to frequently injured (P Goldminer's Dream.

A couple of able sprinters -- Crumpton and Aberfoyle -- won six-furlong races in quick times yesterday at Pimlico Race Course and their owners and trainers are now eyeing a showdown in the Maryland Million.The 3-5 favored Crumpton turned back an accomplished pair of Eddie Gaudet-trained stakes performers, Marry Me Do and Alleged Impression, en route to a 1 1/2 -length victory in the $75,000 Ben Cohen Stakes. His trainer, Ron Cartwright, who won the Maryland Million Classic with Forry Cow How for Crumpton's owners, Eddie and Binnie Houghton, two years ago, said the 5-year-old gelding will be rested until the Oct. 14 Maryland Million Sprint.

Like a big scoop of your favorite ice cream, the subtitle of this book is a real mouthful.It's also misleading.This isn't so much Ben & Jerry's story as it is Ben & Fred's. Fred would be Fred "Chico" Lager, the book's author and former chief executive officer of the ice cream company. Ben would be Ben Cohen, co-founder with Jerry Greenfield of Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc.The conflict between Ben and Fred makes for interesting reading. It turns out that things weren't all sweetness and super chunks up in Vermont in the late 1980s.

Pimlico Race Course began its live spring meet yesterday with a few opening-day quirks, a tribute to former owner Ben Cohen and a lot of mud.A horse named Hit The Music, whom announcer Dave Rodman called "a mud-lovin' mamma," shipped in from Philadelphia Park and won the feature, the $26,625 Gala Lil Stakes, by 2 1/4 lengths over local runner May Maloy.The wet track, which was listed as sloppy for the first four races and then became mud, contributed to 15 scratches and a number of short fields.

What I like most about Ben & Jerry's is everything. Which is why I want to be the company's new chief executive officer.Don't laugh. The job is open. And I like to think I'm qualified.My resume:* I wear jeans to work.* I think Cherry Garcia is simultaneously the best name for a food and the best food ever created.* Although I didn't go to Harvard B-School, I have been to the Ben & Jerry's around the corner. I ordered Chunky Monkey. A double sugar cone.* I can pick either of the Berrigan brothers out of a crowd.
