Wayne Lukas was tempted to put a bet down on his horse before the Pimlico Special yesterday, a foreshadowing if ever there was one. Lukas doesn't bet, see. When you train hundreds of winners a year, you don't need the aggravation -- or the money. He is usually oblivious to gamblers' whims and the capriciousness of the odds. But he saw such a mistake on the Special board that a wager crossed his mind.His horse, Farma Way, was the fourth choice among the seven in the field. The Pimlico oddsmaker had put the horse at 7-2, but he dropped and dropped until leaving the starting gate yesterday at 6-1. The big money was on Unbridled and Summer Squall, the headlining 3-year-olds of a year ago. Farma Way was just an afterthought.

Unbridled's clinker in Saturday's Pimlico Special was not without an explanation. Trainer Carl Nafzger revealed yesterday that the 1990 Eclipse Award winner bled badly during the race, evidently causing his lackluster performance and sixth-place finish.Unbridled runs on the anti-bleeding medication Lasix, but the drug did not fulfill its purpose."He bled pretty heavily," Nafzger said. "Blood was actually trickling out of his nose when we were scoping him. Why? I don't know. He hasn't bled since he was a 2-year-old.

Trainer D. Wayne Lukas always has had a thing for records and the big time. Yesterday, his horse set a record when beating every big-timer in thoroughbred racing.Farma Way, owned by the Quarter B Farm of coffee-machine magnate George Bunn and ridden by Gary Stevens, led all the way to win the $750,000 Pimlico Special, a race billed as a battle of champions.His winning time of 1 minute, 52 2/5 seconds for 1 3/16 miles broke the stakes and Pimlico Race Course record, and it tied the American record set by Riva Ridge in 1973.

Lite Light will return to New York for a rematch against Meadow Star in the Coaching Club American Oaks July 6, but it's going to be hard to match their awesome duel in the Mother Goose Stakes at Belmont Park a week ago.Meadow Star won by about a half-inch, giving a fitting end to what the New York Racing Association rightfully called the year's best weekend of racing in the country.Unwarranted criticism of jockey Corey Nakatani, who rode Lite Light, will long be forgotten when the 1991 Mother Goose is included in a list of memorable races.

The field for the third running of the revived Pimlico Special divides almost too neatly into two groups of runners.There are three "speed" horses -- Jolie's Halo, Farma Way and Summer Squall.Then there is Silver Survivor, who runs in the middle of the pack, followed by three horses that come from distinctly off the pace -- Unbridled, Festin and Reputed Testamony.In order for the come-from-behind horses to have a good chance to wear down the front-runners, they need a fast pace.Chances are, they aren't going to get it.The riders of these horses are just too smart to fall into that trap.
