The Wayne Lukas-Gary Stevens team struck early yesterday when favored Lilly Capote held off the late-charging Broad Smile by a head to win the $75,000-added Miss Preakness Stakes at Pimlico.It was Stevens' first ride on the 3-year-old filly since November. Lilly Capote took to the sloppy track willingly, overtaking pace-setting My Birthday Girl after five furlongs."We didn't think she'd be crazy about it [the muddy surface]," Lukas said in the winner's circle. "But it was a good, safe track and a winning effort.

Sagamore Farm is back in a Triple Crown race. Monzon, bred at the Baltimore County farm, will run in the Belmont Stakes on June 11. Tom Mullikin, general manager at Sagamore Farm, said Tuesday that it has been the plan for about the last 2 1/2 months to run the gelding in the Belmont. Monzon (pronounced Mon-Zone) won the Count Fleet Stakes at Aqueduct on Jan. 1, but struggled when shipped to Florida. Monzon last raced in the Peter Pan Stakes at Belmont on May 14, finishing sixth. "When we won the stakes race, we starting dreaming big," Mullikin said.

FORTY MILES down I-95, the commissioners from several major professional sports leagues were being grilled at another congressional hearing on steroid abuse, but no one even blushed at Baltimore's ESPN Zone last night when someone made this request of Maryland Jockey Club racing secretary Georganne Hale: "Georganne, let's have another pill." Hale dutifully popped a pill out of a red bottle and handed it over to be examined by another official, who determined which trainer was next to choose a post position for the Preakness.

Yesterday's muddy track produced a rash of scratches from the $75,000-added Miss Preakness Stakes, but it might not have mattered to Nic's Halo whom she ran against.As usual, the filly came out of the gate a step slowly, but once she got going, she rolled to the front and went on to a two-length score over Palette Knife."I told Rick [jockey Rick Wilson], she always breaks a step or two slow, but then she gets right into it," said winning trainer Bill Badgett. "A couple of speed horses scratched, so that helped."

After losing Wheelaway the day before, the Preakness gained Impeachment yesterday. That brings the field for Saturday's million-dollar race back to eight. Impeachment finished third in the Kentucky Derby after breaking 19th (and last). He has won only one race - his maiden debut at Calder - and has since lost six in a row. In his two races before the Derby, he finished second in the Tampa Bay Derby and third in the Arkansas Derby. His trainer, Todd Pletcher, announced his entry into the Preakness after Impeachment's half-mile breeze yesterday at Belmont Park.

A Preakness without Bob Baffert?That seems almost unthinkable after Baffert trainees Silver Charm and Real Quiet captured the last two runnings of the Triple Crown's middle jewel. But it's a real possibility in the aftermath of the disappointing, 4-5-11 finishes of his three Kentucky Derby entries.General Challenge (11th) was shipped home to California. Excellent Meeting (fifth) will stay in Kentucky. Prime Timber is at Churchill Downs, but still on the fence. And the outstanding filly, Silverbulletday, will come here with a rider, but isn't certain to run.Baffert will wait until workouts Monday in Kentucky before deciding the agenda of Prime Timber, who raced wide with a host of others in the Derby before rallying for fourth money.

The status of Preakness entrant Valhol was clouded yesterday after the Arkansas Racing Commission disqualified him from the $300,000 purse money he would have earned for winning the Arkansas Derby.Because of the 14-horse limitation for the race, Valhol would need three or more probable Preakness candidates to withdraw from the race by Wednesday morning to qualify for the field. Scratch time is 9 a.m. daily. His career earnings without the Arkansas money would stand at $44,000, less than those of 16 others pointing for the Preakness.

This year there is no Blushing K.D. to go off at 1-to-10 odds.The Grade II $200,000 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes today lacks a horse with the credentials of last year's top filly, who had won five straight stakes entering the race, including the Kentucky Oaks.But for fans, it figures to be a good betting event with no clear-cut favorite.With the scratch of Victorica yesterday, the field has narrowed to eight and one of them, License Fee, comes from the D. Wayne Lukas barn."She's coming off a really good race and she's very good right now," Lukas said.

"He's much more comfortable even now than after the surgery."Halory Hunter's post-operative recovery in the hospital's swimming pool also pleased the doctor.
