It has been 55 years since a Maryland-bred thoroughbred was named North America's Horse of the Year.Local fans might have gotten a good look at one yesterday.It took five years for Cigar to get from his birthplace at Country Life Farm in Bel Air to Pimlico Race Course.But when he did, the horse that has now won five consecutive Grade I stakes, made it to the finish line in style.Cigar ran the fourth-fastest Pimlico Special in the race's 30-year history yesterday and did it in what looked like little more than a public workout.

Devil His Due is arriving for the Pimlico Special on Saturday with his own personal agent from the Internal Revenue Service.The 6-year-old horse was expected to be enjoying this spring at stud in Kentucky instead of running in his third consecutive Special, which he won in 1993.L But that was before the IRS stepped in and kept him in work.The IRS maintains custody of the horse's foal papers and an agent accompanies him to his races and makes sure that any money he earns -- about $350,000 in the past nine months -- is placed in an escrow account with the New York Racing Association.

"The Devil" met his due in the Pimlico Special yesterday when As Indicated swept by the 5-year-old horse in the last eighth of a mile and won the $600,000 Grade I stakes in surprising come-from-behind style.Devil His Due dragged his jockey, Wigberto Ramos, to a premature lead about two-thirds through the 1 3/16-mile race, then couldn't withstand the late charge of As Indicated.Valley Crossing, last year's Maryland-bred Horse of the Year who was ridden by Andrea Seefeldt, finished third, a neck in front of another Maryland-based horse, Greatsilverfleet.

On the surface, there is little different about Grant Hill these days. Just as he did as a Duke freshman, he still can finish a fast break with a thundering dunk. Just as he did as a sophomore and junior, he fits comfortably into a complementary or starring role.But go below the surface. There you can see the transformation, from prodigy to soon-to-be pro, from blue-chip talent to perhaps the best all-around college basketball player in the country. There you can see the personal maturation process at work, from a shy, naive suburban teen-ager to a friendly, yet hardened, young adult.

Strike the Gold, the 1992 winner, yesterday drew the No. 5 post in the six-horse field for tomorrow's $600,000 Pimlico Special.Trainer Nick Zito said he likes "to be inside when you go long. I'd have preferred one or two, but it's no big deal. He'll be last anyway."With such a short field because of the defections of Lil E. Tee, Jovial and Waki Warrior, placement at the start is not considered crucial.George Gianos, the trainer of Pistols and Roses, said: "With this size field, it should be no problem for anybody.
