In 1936, the owners of Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore built a manor home on more than 54 acres in Howard County that once belonged to the descendants of Charles Carroll of Carrollton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. That property at 3925 Folly Quarter Road in Ellicott City is now for sale for $7 million. "I call this one of the prime, principal properties of Howard County, sitting on one of the highest elevations there," said listing agent Creig Northrop, of the Creig Northrop Team of Long & Foster Real Estate.

A seemingly peaceful horse stable on the grounds of city-owned Graham Memorial Park in Cub Hill is the site of the latest dispute at the park, the scene in recent months of a controversial city plan for a golf course.Patricia L. Taormino, the stable's self-appointed manager since 1984, has evicted five horses from the park's yellow-block barn since May after their owners confronted her about operating the barn without a lease.Another owner left voluntarily "for the safety of our horse."Now Taormino -- who was fired from the city Police Department last year for selling a police horse and has been using the park rent-free for seven years -- is being allowed to stay on the property until city, county and state officials decide its fate.

In a way, there has been a little bit of Frank Sinatra in trainer Bob Baffert. That might seem like a strange thing to say about a man with a reedy voice and a flowing mane of snow-white hair. But it's true. Catch him on the right day, and Baffert is as charming as anyone in sports. He can hold the attention of the room — or a throng of media outside a horse barn — better than anyone else in thoroughbred racing. He can do funny and witty one minute, dry and sarcastic the next.
