Tio Pepe is one of those constants in the world of wine. As a nonvintage blend of bone-dry sherry, it doesn't change from year to year. It may not be the greatest fino sherry; it is simply the definitive wine of its type — certainly the best-known dry sherry around the world. Tio Pepe is a pale-colored wine of great complexity and elegance, with hints of almond and very subtle citrus. Its distinguishing feature is a hint of salt water, as though it were meant to be sipped by the sea. If you tasted this wine in your youth and thought it too severe, it's worth retasting to see if your palate has changed.

A stumbling debut caught the eye of Phil Rizzo, and now he has a ticket to Florida.After watching 2-year-old colt Scottish Halo nearly fall to the ground and still win in his August debut at Saratoga, Rizzo persuaded owner John Oxley to make a strong offer to Patrick Byrne.Since that day, Rizzo has guided Scottish Halo to a pair of stakes wins, including yesterday's $100,000 Laurel Futurity. He failed to reveal the offer, but said he is optimistic that Scottish Halo can take him to Florida for the series of 3-year-old races that lead to the Kentucky Derby.

Belief in our cause would defeat terrorists I guess we have to really get down in the gutter with the terrorists and play their game if we expect to stop them. The problem is, the fanatics are willing to die to make a point. I am not sure our western thinking will allow us to sink that low. Our country needs to pull together on this with other countries. I am not sure that is going to happen. Within our country I have not yet witnessed the fire in the belly to go after terrorists. In fact, I have not seen much of a cry for freedom.

The English writer Jan Read makes the case for sherry concisely and persuasively when he writes: "A glass of chilled fino remains the most satisfactory preliminary to a meal and the least likely to interfere with what follows."Though a few champagne lovers might quibble, sherry does refresh and stimulate the palate and the appetite very effectively. But even in this period of unprecedented experimentation by consumers of wine and spirits, sherry -- which can be light or dark and dry or sweet -- remains underappreciated and misunderstood.

If this is the dawn of a new age of racing, it sure bears a striking resemblance to the last one.Three bucks is still a lot to pay for parking in the middle of nowhere. There's still the unescapable stench of cigar smoke.And my pick in the sixth -- Paso Fino -- still came in well out of the money.But there were some subtle signs yesterday at Laurel Race Course of a coming revolution for fans.With a new, $1.5 million, IBM-AmTote computer system that went into operation yesterday, the track is able to increase drastically the number and frequency of races.

Stacy DeFino is a survivor. The 17-year-old Atholton junior has overcome a lifetime of physical hardships - a bicycle accident in third grade that shattered her face, an emergency appendectomy in fifth grade and surgery three years apart to her right shoulder and left knee. And then last week. A day after returning from a school-sponsored trip to Italy, doctors discovered a tumor that led to the removal of her right ovary and Fallopian tube. To her credit, and that of her parents Judi and Mike, DeFino has taken it all in stride.

With all the pomp surrounding Winfield-area residents Judy Gray and Naomi Durdock as they ride their paso fino horses in today's inaugural parade, it should be easy for them to feel tall in the saddle.But since Ms. Gray is a beginning rider and Ms. Durdock is nervous about the whole thing, they'll be satisfied just to stay on their mounts."This is a very nerve-racking situation, but we are looking forward to a good time," said Ms. Durdock, a purchasing agent for a biotechnology firm in Gaithersburg.
