Eibar Coa traveled to Texas to ride two Maryland horses in the Breeders' Cup. Yesterday, he traveled to Maryland to ride a New York horse -- and beat the Marylanders at their own game. Coa guided Aggadan, an Aqueduct-based 5-year-old, to a convincing victory in the $75,000 Challedon Stakes at Pimlico. The Challedon is a six-furlong sprint for Maryland-breds. "He looked strong on paper," Coa said of Aggadan, a son of Carnivalay and the Horatius mare Georgia K. "He showed today he was much the best."

William Hill's Monk's Falcon stalked the speedy pacesetter and then drove by to win the $60,000 Challedon Stakes for older Maryland-bred colts and geldings yesterday at Laurel Park. Under Paul Nicol Jr., Monk's Falcon sped away from his inside post and raced inside of front-running In CC's Honor down the backside and through the far turn. Nicol then guided his 6-year-old charge outside the leader and, as that one began to shorten strides, powered to win by two lengths. Betting favorite Forty Eight Hours charged out of the pack to place, holding off Jorgie Stover by a nose.

South Carroll athletic director Fred Baker took a couple of surveys a few years back to see whether golf could fly in Winfield."The last one, we had three kids respond, and one of them listed "miniature golf" as [his] only experience," he said. "There just wasn't enough interest."That's all changed in a hurry, largely due to the efforts of Chris Howard and the cooperation he's received from The Links at Challedon, a Mount Airy golf course thatopened in June.South Carroll will have a team next fall, which will play at Challedon -- and benefit from the course in other ways, as well.
