LOUISVILLE, KY. - Art Sherman looked dazed, perhaps still a bit uncertain that fate had handed him such a magnificent gift after six decades of devotion to racehorses. A few feet away, Steve Coburn's voice caught with emotion as he spoke of those who didn't believe. Perry Martin wiped tears from his eyes, hugging a relative who shouted: “Oh my God, what a ride! Just like you called it!” For these men, California Chrome had long been the horse of dreams. And against the classic backdrop of Churchill Downs, the rest of the world finally caught up to their vision.

No matter what happens the rest of the NFL season, Baltimore will be represented Super Bowl weekend in the New York region.  While it remains to be seen if that includes the Ravens competing on the field, Baltimore-bred rock quartet J.

But they're giving the colt a chance."He's still a green kind of a colt," said his trainer, Henry Carroll.

THEY ARE native Baltimoreans, from Remington and Parkville, with accents as thick as Chesapeake sludge at low tide. They are card-carrying members of the Teamsters, driving actors and hauling equipment for TV shows and movies such as Homicide, The Wire and everything John Waters and Barry Levinson have ever filmed around the city. They know firsthand there's glamour - and money - here in Baltimore's grit. And, most important, since today is the 128th running of the Preakness, Foard Wilgis and Dave Picarello are horse owners.

When David Hayden was growing up in Edmondson Village in the 1950s, he would go around the neighborhood offering to mow lawns or paint fences for $2 an hour. Almost all of the money he earned went right back into someone else's hands at a racetrack. That's what happens when you're young and you love thoroughbred racing. That $2 wage Hayden once charged is an interesting sum, because today at the 136th running of the Kentucky Derby, it's the same amount that it will cost you to place a bet on Homeboykris, a horse Hayden and his wife, JoAnn, bred on their 155-acre Dark Hollow Farm in northern Baltimore County.

I fully support liberating any animal from abuse. It does not follow however, that rescued animals - pit bulls in particular - should be pushed as companion pets by shelters and rescue organizations. Terry Douglass of Baltimore became the 25th dog bite related fatality nationally this year when she was mauled to death by her own pit bull on Nov. 1. In the days since her passing there have been three more of these gruesome deaths, according to DogBites.org. Nearly all of the 28 people killed by dogs - 15 of them children ranging in ages from 14 months to 7 years - were killed by pit bulls.

Seeing J. Roddy Walston and the Business in concert always guarantees one thing: You'll leave much sweatier than you arrived. Since arriving in Baltimore from Tennessee in 2004, the quartet's workmanlike reputation has been built on its raucous, give-everything-you-have-and-more live show, where perspiration simply comes with the territory. But J. Roddy Walston and the Business were different from the other Baltimore-bred bands of the time. They weren't the lauded experimentalists of Animal Collective or the cloaked-in-mystery duo of Beach House.

On the Wednesday and Thursday before the Preakness, as excitement built for the middle jewel of the Triple Crown, many trainers and owners slipped away from Pimlico Race Course and drove eight miles north on Interstate 83 to look a year into the future. At the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, 2-year-old colts and fillies dashed around the track, some with confidence but most with exuberance unmatched by experience. The owners and trainers who breed, buy and develop them into racers spoke in hushed tones, making notes in a catalog listing 425 horses.

I was given a potted hydrangea flower as an Easter gift. Can I plant that outdoors? Mophead (Grandiflora) hydrangeas are hardy outdoors, but yours was bred for greenhouse culture and forced into bloom for the holidays, so its chances are less certain. Sometimes they make the transition fine. Because it is essentially a houseplant at this point, adjust it to outdoor temperatures slowly over several days or wait until your indoor temperatures and the outdoor temperatures are similar before taking it outdoors.

The day couldn't have turned out better for owner Irv Naylor. And it wasn't too shabby for jockey James Slater, either. With Slater in the saddle, Naylor's Alfa Beat captured the 111th running of the Grand National Steeplechase in Butler, adding a punctuation mark to a four-win performance at the Middleburg (Va.) Spring Races that shot Naylor into the national lead among owners in purses won. All four Naylor horses who prevailed in Virginia were trained by Slater's wife, Brianne.

The 11-horse field in the $350,000 Frank J. De Francis Memorial Dash at Laurel Park was packed with strong sprinters from New York and New Jersey, but when the competitors in the six-furlong race reached the wire, it was Maryland-bred Action Andy, the sixth betting choice, by a literal whisker. In a photo finish, Action Andy edged Kentucky-bred and second choice Il Villano, officially by a nose. The 5-year-old son of Gators N Bears came into the race off a win in the Maryland Million Sprint, but went off at 10-to-1 odds, paying $22.00, $9.20 and $6.60 after covering the dirt course in 1:10.61.

Other trainers and owners, Bill Beatson said, took a look at the Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap, saw the name "Shackleford" and passed. Even Beatson, and his partners at Dark Hollow Farms, David and JoAnn Hayden, knew that a win against the 2011 Preakness winner would be unlikely. They decided to enter the horse, Poseidon's Warrior, anyway, and so on Sunday the Maryland-bred horse was at the gate of an off track at the grade I race at Saratoga. His odds were 36-1, the second longest shot in the field.
