Dinner at DelMarVa's Southern Cafe isn't exactly the same as a meal at a charming, out-of-the-way Eastern Shore diner. But it's close. The eatery, which opened this September in the old broom factory building on the Canton-Brewers Hill border, takes its inspiration from the region's comfort food, with a focus on specialties like fried chicken, Virginia ham and crab cakes. For the most part, the kitchen did these local favorites justice. The restaurant's brick walls, sturdy wooden furniture and friendly vibe lend the place a decidedly down-home-on-the-Shore feel.

Here's one for you: The tiny, picturesque seaside town of Del Mar, Calif., long noted for its racetrack, obviously wants to stick with the horsy image.The San Diego Marathon, a fixture in that city for 26 years, hoped to change its looped course to alleviate traffic problems and sought permission for a straight shot up and down the coast.Del Mar turned down the bid, a city councilwoman explaining, "I took an oath to protect the health and safety of this community and I'm not sure we could be able to do that with this race."

Point Given, America's most exciting horse since Cigar, has been retired because of a tendon strain below his left front knee. Bob Baffert, his trainer, discovered the injury Thursday morning at Del Mar racetrack in Southern California. Baffert said yesterday that he wasn't sure how the strain occurred, but that it probably happened during the Travers Stakes last weekend at Saratoga. Point Given showed no ill effects after the race, which he won by 3 1/2 lengths. But the playful colt, always a handful around the barn, might have aggravated the strain during a typical rearing episode Wednesday after returning to Del Mar, Baffert said.

After you pack up the kids and the dog again and pull out from the lunar way station, it's a long way to the beach. But it might be worth it - a satellite in orbit around the planet Mars found fresh evidence of liquid water, in the form of deposits along a gully that weren't there a few years earlier. Scientists speculate that there may be underground water in a slushy if not a sparkling spring-like form, and that from time to time it may burst into the open. This discovery, reported last week in the journal Science, immediately got some people thinking about the possibility of life on the Red Planet - probably something bacterial or algal (and certainly slimy)

DEL MAR, Calif. -- Cigar is chasing the ghost of Citation. Much has been made of that.But what about his pursuit of the ghosts of Beeswing, Sweetmeat, Filch, First Consul, Leviathan, Kincsem and Camarero? . . .Who?They are a few of the 34 horses -- yes 34, at least -- with longer win streaks than Cigar and Citation. Those two are tied with 16, for the moment, anyway.Citation established his mark 46 years ago, but Cigar will seek the tiebreaker today in the $1 million Pacific Classic at Del Mar.

First Baltimore, then Del Mar.That's the schedule for Canadian trainer David Bell, who livens up today's opener at Pimlico Race Course with the entry of John Franks' Brook of Knowledge in the Park Heights Handicap.The chestnut filly is so overpowering that she looks like a colt. But she'll need that strength to overhaul the speedy frontrunners this afternoon in the $50,000 5-furlong grass --.Especially tough could be Peter Angelos' Cormorant's Flight, who looks like she finally might be rounding into winning form for her most recent trainer, Bill Donovan.
