The Daily Racing Form, the bible of the thoroughbred racing industry, is preparing to shut down its printing operation in Hightstown, N.J., and has notified its unions and independent contractors of plans for a "mass layoff" on May 31.Steve Adams, general manager of the Hightstown operation, said any announcement would be premature at this time because final plans had not been made. He said an announcement probably would come within the next three weeks.The layoff, he said, would affect about 50 employees, "and five or six others probably will be reassigned."

Dan Borislow knows how to enliven a slow period in horse racing. He bought a full-page ad in yesterday's Daily Racing Form challenging the California-based Vindication to a showdown with his Toccet for the 2-year-old Eclipse Award. Borislow offered to bet the connections of Vindication $200,000 against their $100,000 that the Laurel-based Toccet would beat Vindication in the Hollywood Futurity on Dec. 21 at Hollywood Park. Anne and Satish Sanan's Padua Stables owns Vindication, and Bob Baffert trains him. Trouble is, Vindication has been out of serious training since winning the Breeders' Cup Juvenile on Oct. 26 at Arlington Park and isn't slated to race again until February or March.

........................................ ...........................First................Second..............Third Tom Keyser, The Sun...................... Monarchos.. Point Given......Express Tour Keyser's comment: Point Given is the powerhouse, but can a favorite win the Kentucky Derby two years in a row? This race is just too hard to win. Point Given's temperament, post position or bad racing luck could hinder him. Monarchos showed in the Florida Derby that he has the rapid turn of foot it takes to win the Derby.

The weather was sultry, the crowd was small, and the regular announcer was sick with a stomach virus, but the racing pigs were unfazed as long as food was waiting at the finish line. Yesterday afternoon at the Howard County Fair, four little pigs ran gamely around the oval track padded with wood shavings. Four more pigs followed them in a second race, and then the "ugly pigs" came out for their turn - looking suspiciously like two groups of ducks waddling wildly to win. Lastly, a quartet of pygmy goats made their run. After they do the racing, the reward is feed waiting in their pens.

Fans at Pimlico and Laurel, who long have relied on the Daily Racing Form for complete track information, soon will have a choice between two full-fledged turf dailies.Starting next Saturday, April 13, The Racing Times, billed as the first serious alternative to the Form, will hit the stands at Maryland tracks."This is not some cheapo, down-market, underfinanced competitor," editor Steve Crist said yesterday from New York, where the new publication is based. "It is a complete past performance paper that will cover racing like a real newspaper."

The odds of becoming rich playing the lottery are somewhere between getting hit by lightning and stumbling upon an unknown claim to Jack Kent Cooke's estate.Winning money at the racetrack, though not as lucrative, is a far better bet. In fact, with a little luck and the application of some basic principles, you may very well bring home a little extra cash today."It's not simply a roulette wheel on horseback," said Steve Davidowitz, editor of the Internet-based National Racing Report and author of "Betting Thoroughbreds: A Professional's Guide for the Horseplayer," a respected handicapping guide updated and reissued in paperback this year.

Clarence "Jo Jo" Ladner barely cracks the top 10 among the state's winningest jockeys.But his cadre of live stakes mounts -- Chip's Dancer, Broad Gains and the stable of well-bred horses owned by Israel Cohen and trained by Dean Gaudet -- have made him a power this year in added-money races.Yesterday he scored his fourth stakes win of 1993 when he won the Primonetta Handicap at Pimlico Race Course on the Cohen-owned Mixed Appeal.The hard-knocking mare has been stakes-placed on numerous occasions, but had never actually won an added-money race until she collared Singing Ring near the eighth pole yesterday and drew off to 1 3/4 -length victory.

King Leatherbury has his own particular brand of genius.He admits that he manages rather than trains his stable of 58 racehorses, leaving the mundane details to assistants.His hands-off style and unconventional methods provoke criticism from some of his colleagues.But no one can argue with his success.Yesterday, after a week of carping between Pimlico management and record keepers at the Daily Racing Form whether Leatherbury was about to send out winner No. 4,999, 5,000 or 5,001, Leatherbury saddled what is expected to go into the official record books as his 5,000th career winner.

They compete against each other daily, yet they dress in the same corner of the locker room. Either could finish the year with the most wins in the country, yet if one couldn't finish first, he would root for the other. Ramon Dominguez and Travis Dunkelberger, 24-year-old jockeys, occupy a rare place among riders in America. They compete side by side in Maryland as they battle nationally in the race for wins by jockeys. Dominguez, a smooth-riding native of Venezuela, ranks No. 2 in wins behind the veteran Russell Baze, who rides in Northern California.
