Nicole Stall boarded the first plane to Maryland she could catch when she heard of Benjamin Boniface's death last June. She was there to grieve the death of a boy she had known since his birth. But also to work. In the days after the 20-year-old's death in an early-morning car accident on the farm, she went to the barns where she had fallen in love with horses as a teenager. “I was completely out of it,” said William K. Boniface, known to most as Billy. “She just went out to the stallion barn, kept it running.

Home cooking, indeed. Just a few miles northeast of the My Lady's Manor steeplechase course sits Bonita Farm, the long-running operation by the Boniface family that produced the last Maryland-based winner of the Preakness, Deputed Testamony. Saturday, those same connections motored down Route 1 to capture the 103rd edition of the My Lady's Manor steeplechase with Moonsox, a 7-year-old chestnut gelding whose grandsire was, coincidentally, Deputed Testamony Jockey Amelia McGuirk scored big in her first sanctioned race with an impressive stretch run that left five rivals convincingly beaten.

Fall and winter have been on Bonita Glaser's mind, and now they're depicted in her exhibit "Familiar Journeys" at the Artists' Gallery in Columbia. Although her subject matter extends beyond those two seasons, viewing the show in mid-October does make you sensitive to every dropped leaf and fallen snowflake. The watercolor medium facilitates the atmospheric effects and overall moods she's going after in her seasonal views. Colors melt and softly glow in these works. In "Autumn Gold," Glaser provides a close-up view of tightly spaced trees in a forest.
