Ramon Dominguez had a choice aboard Under the Rug: Wait a second or two longer on the rail or swing the mare wide for a wild sprint to the wire. He waited. He won. As soon as pacesetter Silent Valay lifted slightly off the rail on the far turn during the $75,000 Carousel Stakes yesterday at Laurel Park, Dominguez powered Under the Rug through the narrow opening. The 5-year-old mare surged to a 2 1/2 -length lead, then held off the wide-charging Meghan's Joy to win the 1 1/8 -mile stakes for fillies and mares by a neck.

Scrappy T was much more than scrappy coming out of the final turn of yesterday's 130th Preakness Stakes. A horse that started the day at 20-1 odds was in the lead with his jockey, Ramon Dominguez, thinking the only question left was how many lengths he would win by. Instead, Dominguez was left wondering exactly what happened from that point on when his horse and then himself got caught by surprise and veered into the eventual winner, Afleet Alex....

MEXICO CITY - Printing shop owner Alejandro Dominguez Coello was the only man brave enough to accept the police chief's job in the violence-wracked border town of Nuevo Laredo. Six police officials have been killed there since February, and city officials had searched for weeks before hiring Dominguez. Within hours of taking office Wednesday, the new chief was killed in a hail of gunfire, presumably by drug traffickers. The ambush of Dominguez , was one of the more audacious crimes in a string of drug-related killings that have terrorized Nuevo Laredo in recent months.

Ramon Dominguez has gone to post thousands of times, but settling his horse in the starting gate for Preakness is especially exhilarating and requires all of his concentration. "The people are going crazy and it gets you in the mood," he said. "But then you have to zoom out. You really don't hear anything. You have to think about getting ready about what's to come. If the horse is ready to break, you are so focused. But the only time you realize that is when a horse throws a fit and you have to wait and reset.

Javier Castellano, the jockey who won the 2006 Preakness aboard Bernardini, and Ramon Dominguez, who rode in eight Preaknesses but has never won, each captured three races on Preakness Day. Castellano won the James W. Murphy Stakes, the seventh race of the Preakness card, aboard Beau Choix. He finished 13/4 lengths ahead of Garret Gomez, aboard Manhattan Fox. Aboard Northpoint Costas, a 4-year-old chestnut gelding who was foaled in Maryland, Castellano finished two lengths ahead of Midnite Communion in the fourth race of the day. Castellano and his mount took the lead early and never relinquished it. In his first race, aboard Primary Witness, a 4-year-old bay colt, Castellano dueled with Julien Leparoux, aboard Kurbat, down the stretch and won by half a length in a seven-horse field.

LAUREL - - Davidson horse trainer and owner Hubert "Butch" Cave had a hearty laugh Saturday when someone told him she decided to bet on his horse, Sumacha'hot, in the Maryland Million Classic because his "wife" had passed along a tip that the horse was going to win. "I'm not married, and I'm not even dating anyone," Cave said, shaking his head. "So I don't know where that came from. When you own racehorses, the women tend to run the other way." Still, someone was out there talking up Sumacha'hot, and whoever it was, she seemed to know something few others did. The 4-year-old horse, which Cave picked up for $5,000 in a claiming race less than a year ago, won the $200,000 Maryland Million Classic on Saturday at the 24th running of the Jim McKay Maryland Million in front of 19,622 at Laurel Park.

Yes, there are still horses in horse racing. It's not all business and political mumbo jumbo -- although sometimes it seems that way. The Virginia Derby was last weekend. The Delaware Handicap is today. And racing returns Thursday to Laurel Park. The $600,000 Delaware Handicap for fillies and mares culminates the two-day Del 'Cap Festival of Racing at Delaware Park, where many Marylanders have turned their attention this summer. H. Graham Motion and Ramon Dominguez certainly have. The Maryland trainer and jockey, respectively, have been winning 27 percent of their races at Delaware, and Dominguez is running away with the jockeys title.
