The latest turf duel between Lure and Paradise Creek was on the marquee for the $150,000 Early Times Dixie Stakes at Pimlico Race Course yesterday, but a late scratch commanded all the attention.When local trainer Dick Small pulled Dancing Douglas from the race several hours before post time, leaving a five-horse field, it meant that the $1 million bonus awarded to the horse with the highest point total in the three-race Early Times series had been negated.According to the rules, the bonus is awarded only if the three races draw at least six entries.

To Michael Matz, Barbaro's legacy includes a recurring image. It is of the horse with all four feet off the ground. It is as if Barbaro is flying. It has been five years since Barbaro shattered a hind leg at the Preakness, beginning a poignant struggle to save the life of the runaway 2006 Kentucky Derby winner. He eventually suffered from laminitis and was euthanized the following January. At Churchill Downs, where the horse's ashes are buried, there is a bronze statue of Barbaro suspended by a rail so the horse is off the ground — just the way Matz sees him in full sprint in his mind's eye. But the trainer and others believe Barbaro's legacy is more extensive — and more complicated — than the 1,500-pound statue celebrating his breathtaking speed.

Local horsemen have begun the trek to Saratoga, possibly the nation's premier race meeting, which opens for a 34-day stand on Friday.Howard Battle, in his first year as racing secretary at the upstate New York track, said he expects four major Maryland outfits to have horses stabled on the grounds. These are trainers Jimmy Murphy, Katy Voss, Vinnie Blengs and Barclay Tagg."We also gave stalls to Ferris Allen, but he turned them down," Battle said. "Of course, we expect a number of Maryland horses to ship in for our races and then return home."

Q.I am confused. My optometrist recommends vitamins to protect my eyes. A nutritionist says vitamins are a waste of money. She advocates a healthful diet.I take several medicines, including Zocor for cholesterol, prednisone and methotrexate for arthritis, Lasix for blood pressure and Zantac for hiatal hernia. Do you think a multivitamin would be a mistake?A.A multivitamin is a good start, but with your medications it may not be sufficient.Zocor and similar cholesterol-lowering drugs such as Lipitor and Pravachol can reduce the body's stores of an essential compound called Coenzyme Q10. Prednisone and methotrexate can deplete several critical B vitamins.

Was it a mistake to put Greenspring Willy in against $14,500 claimers earlier in his career?"Not really," said Dick Dutrow, the 61-year-old trainer with 40 years experience in the business. "He couldn't win for $25,000, so I put him there."That was before he was put on Lasix. Since receiving the diuretic to help a routine breathing disorder in December, the 3-year-old son of Smarten has been beating all comers.Yesterday, his four opponents in the $50,000-added Harriman Stakes saw him swoosh by in the stretch, clocking 1: 10 1/5 for six furlongs.

LAUREL -- Yesterday was a day for snow, mud, scratches, Lasix and a building Double Triple pool at Laurel Race Course.Only in the featured $16,000 allowance event, where Darinka scored at 4-1 odds under jockey Joe Rocco, did a winner not run on Lasix, the medication used to prevent bleeding.And in the fifth race, the second half of the Double Triple, Supreme Testamony's victory at 35-to-1 guaranteed no winning bettors in the Double Triple, which has escalated to $172,352.20 for today's card.
