For much of the winter of 1994, East Coast racing has been pummeled by storms and sickness.But a horse named Blushing Julian, who missed prep races because of canceled cards and a quarantine caused by an equine herpes outbreak, demonstrated at Laurel Race Course yesterday that such obstacles can be overcome.The chestnut colt, who hadn't raced in nearly 90 days, made the lead easily in the $200,000 General George Stakes and cruised to a 4 1/2 -length win. Under regular rider Bobby Colton, the horse from the barn of Allen Iwinski, leading trainer at Philadelphia Park, turned in an excellent time of 1 minute, 22 4/5 seconds for seven furlongs on a wet track.

Sorry to break it to you, Baltimore. But you may have seen the last of Larry Flynt 's stripper-mobile. The converted U-Haul truck advertising Flynt's Hustler Club is outfitted with a Plexiglas box, sort of like the Popemobile. But this vehicle is outfitted with a stripper's pole and a bunch of itsy-bitsy-bikini-clad dancers doing – what else? – pole dancing. It was last seen rolling around Camden Yards as a game was letting out, treating fans to more action than the Orioles seem capable of providing.

You say you want a horse racing story? Well, here's a horse racing story with some salt and vinegar.The horse's name is Blushing K.D., and she's the best 3-year-old filly in the country, winner of five consecutive stakes races, including the Kentucky Oaks two weeks ago at Churchill Downs. She'll run in the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes tomorrow at Pimlico.Her owners bought her for $25,000 at a small sale in Louisiana last spring and already have turned down a chance to sell her for $1.5 million, which is pretty amazing when you consider that her owners, Jim and Sue Burns, aren't exactly typical racing swells.

It sounds like the stuff of movies - including Fool's Gold, which is still in theaters - but there really are people who hunt for sunken treasure off the Florida coast and throughout the Caribbean Sea. In fact, a group of treasure hunters from Miami will set sail next week to salvage the Spanish galleon Concepcion somewhere off the coast of the Dominican Republic. Burt Webber Jr., who located the ship in 1978 and recovered $14 million in booty, is leading a 13-member crew that hopes to recover the rest of a treasure that could be valued as high as $100 million.

Wayne Lukas wanted to enter in the Derby; Glitter Woman, the Shug McGaughey-trainee who was 4-for-4 in Florida; the Nick Zito-trained Storm Song, winner of the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies, and Blushing K.D.Blushing K.D. hadn't received the notice of the other contenders because she raced this year in Louisiana and Arkansas, where she had won four straight.

This year there is no Blushing K.D. to go off at 1-to-10 odds.The Grade II $200,000 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes today lacks a horse with the credentials of last year's top filly, who had won five straight stakes entering the race, including the Kentucky Oaks.But for fans, it figures to be a good betting event with no clear-cut favorite.With the scratch of Victorica yesterday, the field has narrowed to eight and one of them, License Fee, comes from the D. Wayne Lukas barn."She's coming off a really good race and she's very good right now," Lukas said.

On a day of monumental upsets, Blushing K.D. couldn't avoid the trend and went down to a crushing defeat.Sent off at 1-10 odds, the nation's top 3-year-old filly never seriously challenged for the lead and finished fourth in the $200,000 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes, almost eight lengths behind the front-running winner, Salt It.Salt It prevailed by 4 1/2 lengths over Buckeye Search with Holiday Ball, the local runner trained by Gary Capuano, another 1 1/4 lengths...

Select fresh apricots based first on aroma and then color. A whiff of apricot fragrance is more important than smooth, blushing skin. Choose fruit with a good, even color that is free of bruises or nicks. Never select fruit tinged with green. These might rot before they ripen.Store apricots in an airtight bag or container because they readily pick up flavors from other fruits.For the best flavor and nutrient content, eat apricots while they're still slightly firm.Pub Date: 8/09/98

We are all becoming a bunch of pinkos. The most important capitalist in the world, Donald Trump, sports a pink necktie and world leaders (who know a power tie when they see one) immediately follow suit. Designer runways -- feeling all ladylike and generally femmed-up -- are presenting pretty in pink as a wardrobe must-have for spring / summer. Victoria's Secret unveiled underwear from a new collection called ... wait for it ... Pink. Even stylish men are into haute pink. Johnny Knoxville was pimpin' pink while promoting the movie Walking Tall, and Rod Stewart honed the hue into a snazzy blazer while watching the recent Los Angeles fashion shows.

WASHINGTON -- Meryl Streep smiles and blushes and waves her hand nonchalantly. Acting, she insists, is something she just does, not something that taxes her or something she struggles with. She almost makes it sound easy. But those of us who have watched her on-screen for the past 25 years know better. Nothing so good can, if there is any justice in the world, be so simple. "This is why I've never been able to teach anything," Streep says in mock exasperation when asked what she has drawn on in bringing so many memorable characters to the screen.

LOS ANGELES - Thanks to the phenomenal success of "Survivor," ratings are going up, up, up for CBS this summer. But network executives spent much of the weekend here defending themselves against accusations that "Survivor" and their other omnipresent reality series, "Big Brother," are driving broadcast standards down, down, down while contributing to a meanness in American culture. "OK, `Big Brother' is a very controversial show. We knew it was a controversial show before we put it on the air this summer," Leslie Moonves, president and chief executive officer of CBS Television, said in meeting with reporters gathered in Pasadena for the summer press tour.

Unless you are hiding in a drain pipe, by now you should have received your census questionnaire from the federal government. The census is a federal tradition dating back to 1790, when President Washington ordered all citizens to form a line and count off by ones, thus establishing that the U.S. population at that time was "eleventeen." In modern times, the census is taken by the Census Bureau every 10 years, as required by the Constitution. (For the other nine years, Census Bureau employees play pinochle while remaining on Red Alert, in case the Constitution suddenly changes.

These magnificent tomatoes, fried in lard and sprinkled with brown sugar, came from my next door neighbor, Hadgie Marshall.It was supposed to have been an exchange deal.
