Bob Lewis is 72 years old, but his eyes are sharp. Officials needed a photo-finish replay to determine the winner of the 122nd Preakness, but Lewis knew instantly that his horse, Silver Charm, had won."I did see it," he insisted over and over to his wife, Beverly, more than an hour after the race. "I just knew it! I've seen a lot of photo-finish pictures and I had no doubt."Beverly looked at her husband, with whom she will celebrate 50 years of marriage this summer, and laughed. "Well," she said, "why didn't you tell me?"

ELMONT, N.Y. -- It wasn't hard to find Bob Baffert and Silver Charm among the acres of barns on Belmont Park's tree-lined backside yesterday morning.Theirs was the only barn surrounded by television trucks, satellite dishes and a swarm of reporters.At 7 o'clock, Baffert sipped from a cup of coffee, surveyed the swirling scene and said, "It's great for the sport, but I'm running out of material."The silver-haired, quick-witted trainer of Silver Charm has carried the racing industry for five weeks while his horse has taken a run at the Triple Crown.

Twenty minutes after the race, Bob Lewis, owner of Silver Charm, was handed a copy of the photo taken at the finish line of the Preakness yesterday at Pimlico.Lewis, an old-school gentleman from California who isn't shy in front of cameras and microphones, was briefly rendered speechless as he stared at the photo."Look at that," he finally said. "Is that absolutely incredible?"It was, indeed -- a photo of three horses separated by three feet, tops, after running 1 3/16 miles.Silver Charm was a head in front of Free House.

ARCADIA, Calif. -- The good news is Silver Charm is back."He showed a lot of heart and he hasn't lost a competitive step," trainer Bob Baffert said after the $200,000 Malibu Stakes yesterday at Santa Anita Park.The better news is that Silver Charm might be improved after a layoff of more than six months."He showed instant acceleration instead of needing 50 yards to get wound up like he used to," jockey Gary Stevens said after the Malibu, the first leg of the three-race Strub Series.The bad news, at least to those among the throng of 39,480 who bet the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner down to 3-10 favoritism, is that Silver Charm ran second in the field of nine, a half-length behind 9-1 shot Lord Grillo.

Songandaprayer, a $1 million colt owned by Bobby Hurley, the former Duke University basketball star, dominated the $200,000 Fountain of Youth Stakes yesterday at Gulfstream Park near Fort Lauderdale, Fla. In the next race, A P Valentine, an even more highly regarded colt owned by Rick Pitino, former basketball coach of the Kentucky Wildcats and Boston Celtics, finished third in a stakes-quality allowance race. The two colts and their high-profile owners highlighted what many regard as the first significant stop on the road to the Kentucky Derby.

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. - Ed and Madeleine Landry's sprawling, soaring, mountainside-hugging house is steeled against the elements. Built around a steel frame, it will withstand earthquakes, wildfires and just about anything else nature can dish out. The 11,000-square-foot house includes a 1,600-square-foot guest house. "What we ended up with is probably a house that is as earthquake-resistant as possible," Ed Landry said of the airy steel palace on the family's 130-acre mountain site with sweeping views of Simi Valley.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The most surprising aspect of yesterday's Kentucky Derby took place before the horses ever entered the starting gate. Pulpit, long considered the probable favorite, went off at nearly 6-1.Bettors apparently reacted to the many references to Pulpit's ambitious attempt at making history. He was trying to become only the second horse in 123 runnings of the Kentucky Derby to win without racing as a 2-year-old.Pulpit out-wrestled the lead from Free House down the backstretch.

IT'S TIME to revisit those roundabouts, according to Brent Cogswell of Columbia and other readers who had their own points to make or simply pointed out my omissions. "You've run two columns about roundabouts, but not once have you pointed out that the best thing anyone can do is signal their intentions - both before entering the roundabout and when exiting the roundabout. How about a `primer' about doing this?" he says. You're oh so right, Mr. Cogswell. Here's what the State Highway Administration's fact sheet has to say about signaling at roundabouts: If you wish to turn right, signal a right turn on the approach and through the roundabout.
