Crafty Guy routed the field in the $40,000 Primer Stakes for 2-year-olds yesterday at Laurel Park. The winner completed the six-furlong distance for trainer Jerry Robb in an impressive 1 minute, 8.98 seconds and paid $7. Jockey Mark Johnston hustled the son of Crafty Prospector out of the gate and clicked off fractions of 22, 44.3 and 56.2 seconds. Morning-line favorite Mt. Carson loomed boldly turning for home, but Johnston roused his mount, and they powered to a 3 1/2 -length victory.

Peering out from a crafting table amid traditional holiday heroes such as Santa and Frosty are the faces of other figures beloved by area residents. Birds are popular, both Orioles and Ravens. And there are Terrapins and Redskins, too, to appease those whose team allegiances lie a bit farther to the south. Shoppers at the 41st annual Holiday Mart in Cooksville on Saturday, Dec. 7, will find hand-painted sports team logos, Christmas icons and other symbols on wineglasses, beer mugs and ornaments, thanks to the long hours being put in by Debbie Rich.

Yesterday's feature race at Pimlico wasn't a stakes race, but it was chock full of stakes-caliber horses. Five-year-old Crafty Guy, who was once a promising juvenile, recaptured the spirit of his youth with a gate-to-wire victory in the $38,000 optional/allowance. Apprentice jockey Eric Camacho bolted to the lead with the chestnut son of Crafty Prospector, kept him focused on business down the backstretch and then turned back several crack sprinters to secure the win. Crafty Guy completed the six furlongs in 1 minute, 11.22 seconds and beat Cherokee's Boy by just a neck.

Bobby Ruse threw a one-hitter and struck out 14 to lead No. 1 C. Milton Wright over North East, 7-0, in the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference championship game at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen on Monday. The Indians' only hit came with one out in the bottom of the seventh, when Bobby Dietz hit a single between third and short. "It felt great," Ruse said. "I had a lot of command with my fastball, my defense was great all day behind me and my catcher called a great game.

Jockey Ramon Dominguez had to find an avenue for Crafty Toast yesterday in the $75,000 All Brandy Stakes at Pimlico. The opening appeared just in time and Dominguez adroitly guided the young gray mare through it to overtake Proud Run and prevail by a head at 22-to-1 odds. Crafty Toast, trained at Delaware Park by Bruce Jackson, was supplemented to the race, which attracted most of the top female turf runners in the area. "They sent her to the farm from New York a couple of months ago with the intention of breeding her, but she started to act so fresh and look so good, they kept her training," Jackson said of Bohemia Stable.

WAWAYANDA STATE PARK, N.J. -- John Nasuta blew a puff of steamy breath into the beam of his flashlight to gauge the wind direction, scanned the surrounding blackness and then stepped in a fresh saucer of manure. Domenic, his 7-year-old son, tittered. There was still half an hour before dawn and Nasuta was looking for a good downwind location before daylight would give him away to even the most farsighted coyote. "It's like hunting the Bionic Man," he said, his voice filled with awe. "Their senses are so good, it's only a matter of seconds before they know you're there."

ARCADIA, Calif. -- Here we are, four weeks before the Kentucky Derby, and the trainer attracting the most attention is the one saying, "Heck no, I won't go." Howard Zucker, a transplanted Easterner who trains Crafty C.T. here at Santa Anita Park, says that he won't run his colt in the Kentucky Derby even if he upsets Point Given in the Santa Anita Derby. This race heads the list today of four major stakes for 3-year-olds at tracks around the country. Other races serving as proving grounds for the Kentucky Derby and Preakness are the Flamingo Stakes at Hialeah Park, Illinois Derby at Sportsman's Park and Lone Star Derby at Lone Star Park.

The photo tells all. Arms raised in triumph, body flush with joy, Orioles pitcher Mike Cuellar leaps off the mound at Memorial Stadium, having stuffed the Cincinnati Reds, 9-3, in the deciding fifth game of the 1970 World Series. "I can still see the look on Mike's face," third baseman Brooks Robinson recalled Friday. "His mouth was wide open, and he had a big, big smile." Miguel Angel Cuellar died Friday of stomach cancer at Orlando Regional Medical Center in Florida. He was 72. Of his 185 major league victories, none meant more than that World Series win to Cuellar, the Cuban-born left-hander who revived his flagging career in Baltimore - as well as the Orioles' fortunes.

Former screenwriters Michael Sutton and Anthony Fingleton created Over My Dead Body in 1984 as a play to salute classic mystery writers like Arthur Conan Doyle and Agatha Christie. Their play features a trio of once-famous mystery writers whose elegant works have been replaced by sleazy, too-realistic current bestsellers. These writer-friends are the founders of a club for mystery writers - the Murder League in London, where they meet and decide to craft and commit the perfect murder to restore the mystery novel's rightful importance (despite the probability that they will be caught)

ARCADIA, Calif. - With an exclamation point, a shout and a warning to every other 3-year-old, Point Given affirmed his status as Kentucky Derby favorite yesterday with an emphatic victory in the Santa Anita Derby at Santa Anita Park. The gargantuan chestnut colt rambled to a 5 1/2 -length triumph in the race that has produced three of the last four Kentucky Derby winners. Point Given's performance was so overpowering that observers immediately began looking beyond the Derby to the Preakness and Belmont.

SANDY Grady is a columnist for the wildly liberal Philadelphia Daily News. As such, he qualifies for reprinting in the similarly radical Evening Sun. Because Grady is fairly crafty -- a sort of Mary McGooGoo with a mallet -- and because I believe in keeping an eye on the enemy, I read his July 14 column on the Democratic National Convention.At first I thought the Age of Miracles had arrived, that this heavy-handed, hard-lefty had actually written something with which I could agree:"It's the Valium-like peace inside the Garden that makes you wonder what happened to the old snarling, biting Democrats . . . This seamless, antiseptic love-in is exactly what Governor Clinton and party chairman Ron Brown wanted . . . You may call the federal pen at San Quentin "unified," too, but it's not exactly democratic with a lower-case "d."

A prize-winning soft chevre from Quebec. A buttery California brie. A semi-firm, washed-rind cheese and a potent blue, both from Wisconsin. Like fragrant, edible jewels, the cheeses nestle on a rectangular ceramic platter. Four different bottles of craft beer are arranged behind them. The delectable still life has been assembled by Susan Scovell, cheesemonger at the Wine Source in Hampden, as an introduction to the ambrosial pleasures of pairing cheese and beer. The two farmhouse products that have long been a part of traditional meals in Europe, including the venerable ploughman's lunch, are being reinvented with inspired finesse.
