Next to Allen Murray's senior picture in the 1951 Havre de Grace High School yearbook were the words: Calumet Farm North. That was Murray's ambition a half century ago, to operate a horse farm like the famed Calumet nursery in Kentucky. Today, Allen and his wife, Audrey, 66, will entertain as many as 250 guests at their picturesque Murmur Farm in Darlington. The occasion is a showing of their seven stallions, including exciting newcomers Disco Rico and Our Emblem. From humble beginnings in the late 1950s, when they hauled horses in a converted beer truck, the Murrays have built Murmur into one of Maryland's leading horse farms.

The phone has stopped ringing incessantly at Murmur Farm in Darlington and at Nancy Alberts' in Jessup. Life has returned to normal, more or less, but the fairy-tale memories remain fresh. "A wild ride," said Audrey Murray. "Once in a lifetime." Audrey and Allen Murray, who own Murmur Farm, said goodbye last week to Our Emblem, the stallion they owned for a brief, but exhilarating, eight months. After breeding his last two of 100 mares in Maryland, Our Emblem boarded a van Monday for the ride to his new home, Taylor Made Farm in Kentucky.

COLLEGE PARK - Goran Murray has had better days. The junior is Maryland's best close defenseman, but he had a rough outing in the seventh-seeded Terps' 8-7 win over Cornell in an NCAA tournament first-round game at Byrd Stadium on Saturday. Junior attackman Matt Donovan scored all three of his goals against Murray and recorded his lone assist when he lost Murray behind the cage and fed senior attackman Dan Lintner for a goal in the fourth quarter. But Maryland coach John Tillman noted that Murray forced Donovan into a turnover later in the period that helped the team win the time-of-possession battle.

IT HAS BEEN six months since Audrey and Allen Murray gambled on a horse. And he's been paying off ever since. It seems the horse, Our Emblem, a sire with sure-fire bloodlines, had failed to deliver for his previous owners. Our Emblem's initial offspring appeared a lead-footed lot, and he was sold in November to the Murrays, owners of Murmur Farm in Darlington. No sooner had Our Emblem made himself at home in the Murrays' stallion barn than two of his sons started to make their daddy proud.

Cal Ripken Jr. and Eddie Murray were back together again Friday night. Jokes were cracked and smiles were frequent as the former teammates reminisced about being raised "the Oriole Way," and talked about the resurgence of an Orioles franchise they expect to contend again in 2014. Murray was honored by Ripken and the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront, along with Japanese baseball legend Sachio Kinugasa and New Jersey high school basketball coach Bob Hurley Sr. But as Murray and Kinugasa joined Ripken at a press conference announcing the honorees, Murray joked, "You people just came to see him. " Murray and Kinugasa, who flew in from Japan for the foundation's 10th annual Aspire Gala, were the men of the night, though, not Ripken, who said he chose Murray because he wanted to celebrate both his "special relationship" with Ripken's father and his Hall-of-Fame career.

Then George Mason coach Nyla Milleson, who had been recruiting Cole, started looking at Murray, too. For the first time, the girls pictured themselves as college teammates.
