Malibu Moonshine may have run his way into the Preakness yesterday. Aided by a slow pace and a compact field, the chestnut colt proved he could handle 1 1/8 miles, overtaking front-runner Hello Jerry in deep stretch to capture the $150,000 Federico Tesio Stakes, the feature on the Spring Festival of Racing at Pimlico Race Course, by three-quarters of a length. The performance could be a steppingstone into the middle jewel of the Triple Crown, although trainer King Leatherbury is not committing just yet. "We'll evaluate this effort and then decide later," said Leatherbury, 72 years old and third on the all-time list with 6,070 wins.

Trainer Billy Boniface yesterday ruled out any possibility of running Oliver's Twist, winner of the Federico Tesio Stakes, in the Kentucky Derby next week.But he is aiming the horse for the Preakness on May 20.The Derby was eliminated, Boniface said, because "of the track [at Churchill Downs]. There's not enough time to ship there and acclimate him to the surface."Oliver's Twist is one of about five 3-year-olds who are skipping the Derby, but could be Preakness-bound. Others include the Nick Zito-trained pair of Star Standard and Mr. Greeley; Mystery Storm, second choice in Saturday's Arkansas Derby, who finished fifth; and Houston Sunrise, winner of the San Pedro Stakes at Santa Anita Park on April 12.Each of Zito's colts has won a stakes at the current Keeneland, Ky., race meet.

LAUREL -- The notification that North Carroll would be tough in the Mister Diz Stakes came Friday morning. Mrs. Frank Wright's charge went three furlongs in a blazing 35 2/5 seconds over the Laurel surface, a perfect primer for the $50,000 race for Maryland-bred 3-year-olds.Yesterday, North Carroll finished his task as the even-money favorite, scoring his first stakes victory by a length over the speedy Rainbow Prospect, who held on for second by a head over Cruel Cavalier.With Rick Wilson, the regular rider for the Benjamin Perkins Jr.-trained stable, in Florida, Michael Luzzi took North Carroll over the 6 furlongs in 1 minute, 11 seconds, equaling the stakes record set by Fighting Notion two years ago."

An outbreak of sickness among horses in the barns at all three Maryland tracks left the fading days of Laurel Park's winter meet with a number of skimpy fields.Four- and five-horse races were common for several weeks, and the situation was aggravated by scratches brought about by rainy weather.But the problem has abated and that -- coupled with the return of several major stables to Maryland -- should provide Pimlico's spring session with a healthy number of entries.Old Hilltop's only meeting of the year starts today with a $40,000-added overnight stakes for 3-year-old fillies, the Smart Halo, as the feature.
