On the Wednesday and Thursday before the Preakness, as excitement built for the middle jewel of the Triple Crown, many trainers and owners slipped away from Pimlico Race Course and drove eight miles north on Interstate 83 to look a year into the future. At the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, 2-year-old colts and fillies dashed around the track, some with confidence but most with exuberance unmatched by experience. The owners and trainers who breed, buy and develop them into racers spoke in hushed tones, making notes in a catalog listing 425 horses.

The Midlantic December Mixed Sale of breeding stock held its own yesterday with the same sale last year. And that, in the current depressed market, was a success. Fasig-Tipton Midlantic sold 192 horses for $1,339,000, an average of $6,974, at the sales pavilion at the Timonium fairgrounds. That compares favorably with last December's sale of broodmares and stallions, when purchases averaged $7,159. "I'm happy," said Mason Grasty, executive vice president of the sales company. "In light of what's happened at other sales, I'm thrilled, actually."

Anak Nikal surged ahead of the favorites yesterday to win the $1 million Pennsylvania Derby at Philadelphia Park in Bensalem, Pa. With 13-time Monmouth Park riding champion Joe Bravo in the saddle, the 3-year-old worked his way through traffic on the far turn, switched to the middle of the track in the homestretch and seized the lead within the shadow of the finish line. Anak Nikal covered 1 1/8 miles in 1 minute, 48.99 seconds. Anak Nikal, who was 16-1 and won for the third time in 10 lifetime starts, finished a neck ahead of Acai, taking home the winner's check for $532,000.

Five horses sold for at least $100,000 yesterday as the two-day Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Eastern fall yearlings sale got under way at the Timonium fairgrounds. The top-priced yearling was a black colt from the first crop of Vicar, a two-time Grade I winner and a son of Wild Again. The colt's granddam is Cruising Haven, who produced the Grade II winners Royal Haven and Belterra. Consigned by Chanceland Farm, the Kentucky-bred colt sold for $185,000 to Nick deMeric, a buyer from Florida. The second-highest-priced yearling was a bay colt by the late Allen's Prospect.

Fewer quality horses than usual resulted in lower prices at the Midlantic winter mixed sale Sunday at the Timonium fairgrounds. Some 145 horses sold for $896,800, an average of $6,185 per horse. At the same sale last year, 189 horses sold for $1,725,500, an average of $9,130. "The difference was in the quality of the horses," said Mason Grasty, executive vice president of Fasig-Tipton Midlantic, the sales company. "It doesn't signal a downturn in the market." The most significant weakness was in yearlings.

The Fasig-Tipton Midlantic December Mixed Sale in Timonium saw a drop in average sale price, median price and gross sales compared to a year ago. But while lower-end sale prices dropped, top-end prices held up and surpassed those in last year's sale. "I was disappointed in the buy-back rate," said Mason Grasty, Fasig-Tipton Midlantic's executive vice president, at the end of the two-day sale yesterday. "The number of horses not sold was too high." There were 375 horses sold, and 175 did not reach their asking prices and were bought back.

The Fasig-Tipton Midlantic December mixed sale of thoroughbreds in Timonium concluded yesterday with an increase in the average price per horse over the same sale last year. In light of recent depressed horse auctions around the country, that rise put a smile on the face of Mason Grasty, executive vice president of Fasig-Tipton Midlantic, based in Elkton. "In what would be a down market, the average was up," Grasty said. "You can't be any happier with it than that." In this year's two-day sale of breeding stock, racehorses and potential racehorses, 448 horses sold for $3,530,500, an average of $7,881.

A healthy demand for weanlings at Timonium yesterday salvaged the two-day Fasig-Tipton Midlantic December mixed sale of thoroughbreds that had started dismally Sunday. Weanlings brought an average of $9,629 yesterday compared to $8,928 at last year's sale. A gray filly with great promise born May 14 sold for $103,000 to Josham Farms of Canada. The weanling filly is a fine-looking daughter of the champion Silver Charm and the stakes-winning mare Promiseville. Still, the two-day totals for the sale at the fairgrounds fell far short of last year's figures.

The price of horses rose at the two-day Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Two-Year-Olds in Training sale that concluded yesterday at the sales pavilion at Timonium. Yesterday and Monday, 282 thoroughbreds sold for $9,312,600. The average price of $33,023 was 4 percent higher than last year's $31,826, and the median of $22,500 was 7 percent higher than last year's $21,000. The gross of $9.3 million was 9 percent higher than last year's $8,529,400. Only 99 horses were not sold, compared to last year's 120. Usually, when the buybacks decrease, so does the average.

They came to the Timonium Fairgrounds yesterday, braving the mud and the rain, many clutching wrinkled pieces of paper or catalogs with worn-down edges and scribbled notes in the margins. Some had millions to spend, others just a few thousand. And although they were in town to buy horses, what's really for sale at the annual Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Preferred Two-Year-Olds in Training auction - where more than 300 horses can change hands over two days - is something more abstract. They are buying dreams.

It's early morning, and Domenico Zannino is hanging on the first-turn rail at Timonium racetrack, clocking horses in preparation for next Monday's Fasig-Tipton sale. "It's a wonderful place to be," said the Highlandtown native, who is the majority owner of Xchanger, the 3-year-old who will run in the Preakness on Saturday. "The sun comes lifting up and the horses come galloping down the frontstretch. It's good stuff." Last year, Zannino was here doing the same thing, and that's when he spied horse No. 501. "I was looking for the conformation, the movement and the ability," he said.

Ninety horses were sold for $1.2 million at a Fasig-Tipton Midlantic auction of 2-year-old thoroughbreds yesterday at the Timonium fairgrounds. Buyers paid $1,201,500 for the 90 horses, an average of $13,350. Those figures were down from the same sale last year, when 108 horses were sold for $1,610,600, an average of $14,913. Terence Collier, director of marketing for Fasig-Tipton, the sales company, said the lower figures yesterday were a reflection of one thing only: a smaller catalog of horses this year.

The snowstorm presaged the disappointment of yesterday's opening session of the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic December mixed sale of thoroughbreds at the Timonium fairgrounds. A tent for stabling horses in the Timonium infield collapsed Thursday under the weight of snow. Fortunately, horses hadn't arrived yet, but workers had to scramble to get the tent back up. Things slid downhill from there. Although 188 horses sold yesterday for $823,100, the first day of the two-day auction showed significant decreases in every category - except for the number of horses not sold.
