About the only misleading thing about "A Dog of Flanders" is the title, since the dog is only nominally important to the plot. Everything else about this movie is as subtle as a cinder block crashing on your head. The protagonists, a boy, his grandfather and their beautiful dog, a Bouvier des Flanders, aren't just poor, they're impoverished. And their struggles aren't just formidable, they're as big as those windmills that dot the Belgian countryside. Of course, the villain is an utter cad who evicts the poor (on Christmas, no less)

ARCADIA, Calif. -- Pat Day would arrive at the barn unannounced for his regular visit with the filly. He would slip into her stall quietly, as if looking in on a close friend's child. Those visits last summer at Saratoga forged a bond between the Hall of Fame jockey and the promising filly Surfside that remained strong through winter into spring. Today, rider and filly must draw deeply from that relationship if they're to accomplish that rare feat in their sport: win a horse race against colts.

Harriet Finkelstein's pulse was racing nearly as fast yesterday as her filly, Stormy Blues, in the Grade III Selima Stakes.But in Las Vegas, one bettor was playing it cool, dropping $100,000 to show on the Finkelstein horse via simulcast from Laurel Race Course just a couple of minutes before post time.Sent off at 1-5 odds, the lowest price for a winning favorite in a Maryland stakes this year, Stormy Blues didn't disappoint either her owner or the bettors.Responding to an understated ride by jockey Jose Santos, who was the riding star on Saturday's Breeders' Cup Preview card at Belmont Park, the New York-based horse with Pikesville owners came between horses in the upper stretch and defeated the rallying Maryland-bred, Special Broad, by 1 1/4 lengths.

YPRES, Belgium -- All is not quiet on the Western Front.Here on one of World War I's busiest and bloodiest battlefields, unexploded artillery shells stir from an 80-year slumber, rising by the thousands from the mud of Flanders.Some are awakened by plows and backhoes. Others are simply heaved to the surface by the steady workings of frost and thaw. Having outlived nearly everyone who once built them, fired them or cowered beneath their flight, the shells remain ready to kill. And sometimes not even the full-time efforts of 73 Belgian soldiers and civilians are enough to stop them.

"Moll Flanders" is a melodrama of the old school, rife with sin and agony and women in uncomfortable dresses and men in puffy shirts and enough personal disasters to shake up the Sphinx.No, it's not credible. But it's enjoyable storytelling if you get into the spirit of the film, directed and adapted by Pen Densham, who wrote "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" and "Backdraft."Given Densham's credits, the Hollywood treatment of Daniel Defoe's classic novel isn't surprising; in fact, the film clearly says it is "based on the character from the novel by Daniel Defoe."

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- When Flanders won a stretch-long duel over stablemate Serena's Song in the $1 million Juvenile Fillies stakes, she was the only winner on the Breeders' Cup card not to make it back to the winner's circle.When jockey Pat Day was pulling up the horse, he felt her limping in the left fore leg and hopped off.Instead of jogging back for the victory presentation, Flanders was loaded on a horse ambulance and taken to the stable area.As it turned out, Flanders suffered double fractures in the right front leg. And though the injury is not life-threatening, it is uncertain whether she will race again.
