Under confident handling, Marc Ferrell's Called to Serve waited behind the leaders, tipped to the outside and pounced, winning the $125,000 Broad Brush Stakes, the co-feature on New Year's Eve at Laurel Park. Joel Rosario was at the controls as the Nick Canani trainee covered the nine furlongs in 1 minute 50.75 seconds. Eighttofasttocatch, who has six stakes victories at Laurel Park, set the pace and was racing comfortably on the lead but could offer no resistance when Called to Serve ranged up to his outside.

ELMONT, N.Y. - Robert E. Meyerhoff says that Include is possibly the best horse he has bred, maybe even better than Concern. Better than Concern, who won the Breeders' Cup Classic seven years ago at Churchill Downs? "I think he's possibly better, at least as good," Meyerhoff said. "Of course, he hasn't won a Breeders' Cup Classic." On Saturday at Belmont Park, Maryland's Meyerhoff could become the first owner to win the Classic twice. Include, his homebred son of the famed Broad Brush, will race against the best horses in the world in the $4 million race.

LAUREL -- Richard Small usually doesn't waste his time recalling the good ol' days. Then again, it's hard for him to forget what he once had."It's hard to get a horse as good as Broad Brush," he said, invoking the name of the all-time Maryland-bred earner. "There may be no such thing because he was just such a great horse."From 1985 to 1987, Small trained Broad Brush to win $2,656,793 and such important races as the Wood Memorial and Santa Anita Handicap. Whether Broad Brush, now an 8-year-old stallion in Kentucky, has passed his talent to his offspring remains an unknown, but a fraction of the answer should come today in the 10th race, $150,000 Maryland Juvenile Championship at Laurel Race Course.

The aptly named Unlawful Behavior tried to take a bite out of the competition yesterday at Pimlico.The tactic -- fairly common at dog tracks where the competitors are muzzled, but unusual in horse racing -- didn't work, and Ask Me Out lasted to win the $22,000 allowance co-feature by a nose.With Mark Johnston aboard for trainer King Leatherbury, Unlawful Behavior came charging at pace-setting Steve Hamilton and Ask Me Out during the stretch run.Ask Me Out drifted out from the rail toward the closer, who drifted inward slightly.

When Dick Small got a telephone call from Baltimore County millionaire philanthropist Robert Meyerhoff asking him to train his horses in 1985, little did either know he was about to create a Maryland horse racing dynasty.There are practically no other words to describe the sensational success that the pair experienced from the start and has built on. Small has trained 14 stakes winners for Meyerhoff, won 54 stakes -- 17 graded -- and earned approximately $10 million with his horses.In Saturday's Preakness Stakes, Meyerhoff will be running two colts, Concern and Looming, whom he foaled and raised on his farm in Phoenix.

Baseball Ex-Oriole Gonzalez signs with Brewers The Milwaukee Brewers have agreed to a one-year deal with former Orioles left-handed reliever Michael Gonzalez , according to a Fox Sports report Friday. Gonzalez, 34, flourished last season with the Washington Nationals as a midseason addition on a one-year minor league deal and pitched in key situations against left-handed batters down the stretch. According to a CBS Sports report, his deal with the Brewers is worth $2.25million with incentives, making him the second Nationals left-handed reliever to head to the Brewers, a team starved for them.

I awoke Monday to news the horse racing industry is in trouble ("Md. horse farms fear tax break will be cut," July 11). Yet I was not at all surprised by Sen. Barbara Mikulski's negative comments regarding Republicans, specifically that they want to "get rid of teachers. " As usual, the Democrats and The Sun paint Republicans with a too broad brush. What the writer failed to mention is that, in the sausage-making process required to solve the federal deficit, the Republican leadership has taken a principled stand to insure that no American's taxes are raised.

Mark Shuman is the trainer of Xchanger, a 3-year-old who hoped to be on the road to Louisville for the Kentucky Derby by now. Instead, he is at Pimlico Race Course today, which Shuman isn't particularly happy about for more than one reason. The Kentucky Derby prep season wraps up today with the Grade II, $325,000 Coolmore Lexington Stakes at Keeneland Race Course in Kentucky. The ungraded, $125,000 Federico Tesio Stakes at Pimlico is usually a steppingstone for locally based horses hoping for a start in the Preakness.

Aproposal for administering an HIV-AIDS test to every patient who encounters the health care system - from pubescent teens to recent retirees - has an appealing simplicity. No fuss about risk analysis; no muss about stigma. Just a routine matter conducted at the time of other blood work that could give tens of thousands of Americans vital health information before symptoms emerge, possibly saving their lives and the health of those whom they might otherwise infect. Yet universal HIV-AIDS testing as recommended last week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has drawbacks as well, including price and privacy considerations, that deserve thoughtful debate, community by community, before the policy is adopted In Maryland, for example, testing all Baltimore residents ages 13 to 64 on a voluntary basis makes a great deal of sense.

AS PEOPLE of faith, we disagree with public officials' use of the phrase "people of faith." A few weeks ago, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist spoke at "Justice Sunday: Stop the Filibuster Against People of Faith." The Senate leadership, using this mantra, threatened to exercise the so-called nuclear option, eliminating the use of the filibuster for judicial nominees. Recent articles in Time and The New York Times are also making much of "people of faith." We are pleased that the media are talking about issues of faith.
