Potential buyers for the Brass Elephant, who failed to come up with a deposit Monday, still want to go ahead with the deal, an owner of the shuttered Mount Vernon restaurant said Tuesday. Randy Stahl and the other owners closed the fine-dining establishment in August and put the building that housed it up for sale. An investment group planning to put a restaurant in the location signed a contract on the building a month ago and had until Monday to put down a deposit. The money never came.

A federal bankruptcy judge agreed Wednesday to hear arguments Jan 5. on whether to reject a profit-sharing agreement related to Maryland's two thoroughbred tracks slated to be auctioned early next year. The hearing will be three days before the auction of Pimlico Race Course and Laurel Park. The racetracks' bankrupt owner, Magna Entertainment Corp., wants to terminate the deal that would split any potential slots proceeds with Joseph De Francis and other former owners of the tracks. De Francis initiated an adversary proceeding - the bankruptcy court equivalent of a civil lawsuit - to fight Magna's efforts.

A potential deal with outfielder Tyler Colvin has been held up due to concerns the Orioles had about a physical he took last Wednesday, according to an industry source. No specifics were given as to what questions the Orioles may have had or if the Orioles and Colvin could potentially agree to a lesser deal.  Asked earlier today about any hold up involving Colvin, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said: “We didn't report anything with Colvin. We never reported anything with Colvin.” Duquette has never confirmed that a deal was in place with Colvin - or that the club was talking to the 28-year-old outfielder.
