— Trainer John Salzman Jr. didn't set out to buy a horse for 25th annual Maryland Million Day, but this year, unlike some others, he has a filly that looks like the class of the Maryland Million Lassie field for two-year-olds and possibly one of the best horses on the card. But don't tell Salzman his horse looks like a synch to win. He'll look at you with dismay. "We might have a shot to win a race," he said after Wednesday's draw at Laurel Park where his filly was one of 111 horses who learned which gate they'll be starting from for Saturday's Maryland Million Day. "I'd never say we were a synch.

Laurel-based Include may have encountered breathing problems in the Iselin Handicap on Sunday at Monmouth Park in New Jersey, trainer Bud Delp said yesterday. Delp said Include, who finished sixth as the heavy favorite, may have displaced his soft palate during the race, cutting off his air and compromising his chances. The trainer said he would monitor the situation before deciding how to treat the problem or scheduling Include's next race. "Something obviously happened; he didn't run his race," Delp said.

Today In addition to the Grade I Frank J. DeFrancis Memorial Dash, Laurel Park has scheduled two other sprint stakes on the 11-race card. The Mister Diz has lured 10 registered Maryland-breds that will vie for a $60,000 purse. Two previous winners of this turf event - Tyaskin in '98 and Smart Sunny last year - are among the 10 entered but neither will go postward the favorite. That honor is likely to go to Fortunate Stable's My Problem, a $35,000 claim by trainer Dale Capuano that will be testing turf for the first time.

The lazy days of summer traditionally conclude with 10 days of horse racing at Timonium. But this year, because thoroughbred racing in the state ceases for six weeks afterward, the Timonium meet has assumed uncharacteristic urgency.For tomorrow's opening-day stakes, the $30,000 Bobby Hale for 2-year-olds, and Sunday's feature, the $30,000 Linkage Stakes for 3-year-olds, 31 horses were nominated for each race. A field of 10, the maximum for Timonium's 5/8 -mile oval, was entered in each stakes.

Oceanport, N.J. -- The Breeders' Cup started with three new races yesterday run on a sloppy track at Monmouth Park and with none of the favorites winning. The day's biggest race, the Dirt Mile, was won by second choice Corinthian in 1:39.06 by 6 1/2 lengths over Gottcha Gold. Betting favorite Discreet Cat was another 8 1/4 lengths back. "Fifty yards out of the gate, I was nine abreast," winning jockey Kent Desormeaux said. "I said, `This is ridiculous,' and pulled him up and ended up inside the whole field down on the fence.

Philadelphia Park-based trainer Marty Ciresa returns to the Maryland Million Day races with the favorite in the $250,000 Classic this afternoon, but he has no trouble recalling his feelings from the days when he didn't even have an entry. "I remember when I would have died to have had a horse in the Classic," said Ciresa, whose Presidentialaffair is the favorite today at Laurel Park to repeat his victory of a year ago. "With a horse like Presidentialaffair, I know there is more pressure because people expect him to win," he said.

With a $150,000 purse, the John D. Schapiro Memorial Breeders' Cup yesterday was the signature event of Laurel Park's abbreviated summer meeting. The 1 1/8 -mile turf race named in honor of the track's former owner lost some luster when more than half of the original 11-horse field scratched, but it was still a thrilling race for the connections of French Charmer, who scored a length victory at 5-1 odds, third longest in the field. With the Sondra D. Bender entry of Tam's Terms and Certantee withheld, presumably to run in today's $75,000 Battlefield Stakes at Monmouth Park before the Haskell Invitational, favoritism was bestowed on Rock Slide, the Neil Howard trainee based in Kentucky.

Girls in the stretch MARYLANDERS may remember a teen-age Julie Krone riding to some of her earliest victories at Pimlico in the 1980s, honing her gift for "getting a horse to do something easy." The retired jockey will get her due when she becomes the first female inducted into the Racing Hall of Fame in August. Ms. Krone, all of 4 feet 10.5 inches and maybe 100 pounds, was no lightweight in contest. She thundered into the inside with determination and became the most successful female jockey in history, winning 3,543 races.
