William Hill's Monk's Falcon stalked the speedy pacesetter and then drove by to win the $60,000 Challedon Stakes for older Maryland-bred colts and geldings yesterday at Laurel Park. Under Paul Nicol Jr., Monk's Falcon sped away from his inside post and raced inside of front-running In CC's Honor down the backside and through the far turn. Nicol then guided his 6-year-old charge outside the leader and, as that one began to shorten strides, powered to win by two lengths. Betting favorite Forty Eight Hours charged out of the pack to place, holding off Jorgie Stover by a nose.

The next move is up to Art Monk.In the wake of Monk's first public comments about his contract status, a team source said yesterday that the Washington Redskins aren't changing their position on Monk's status.They're leaving their offer of $1.1 million a year on the table, but they're not increasing it and they're not giving him his starting job back."The issue here is whether the coach has a right to name his starters," a source said.Monk, who skipped minicamp, is unhappy the Redskins have told him he'll come to training camp as a backup, behind Ricky Sanders and Desmond Howard.
