The California faction may have been dissuaded by Catinca's presence in today's $250,000 Barbara Fritchie Handicap at Laurel Park, but Burning Daylight Farms hasn't backed off.With a substantial break in the weights for both horses, Burning Daylight and trainer A. Ferris Allen III are hoping that one of their "Trouble Twins" can spring an upset of the probable favorite, who arrived from Florida for the Grade II showdown for fillies and mares.The capable Palette Knife and Passeggiata are each coming off victories and, despite being an entry, they will probably will be good values on the tote board.

J J'sdream, a gray mare seeking redemption, found it yesterday in the Barbara Fritchie Handicap at Laurel Park.In a breathtaking race featuring three horses charging to the wire, the mare from New Orleans finished a head in front of Palette Knife, who edged Stylish Encore by a nose. Three abreast, the trio resembled Silver Charm, Free House and Captain Bodgit in last year's Preakness, which many said was one of the greatest races in Triple Crown history."It's good for horse racing. It gets the fans excited," said Larry Reynolds, the winning jockey.

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."

What was looming as jockey Edgar Prado's most momentous day in horse racing took a sudden, bizarre twist in yesterday's final race at Laurel Park.Prado was loping along toward his 500th victory of the year when the filly he was riding, You Don't Say, broke down less than one-sixteenth of a mile from the wire.The field roared past before Prado's mount limped home and finished last in a field of nine $8,500 claiming horses. Favored Miss Malcolm F. went by first to capture the victory under Walter Cullum.

Edgewood resident and artist Michael Janouris says the message of his art is hope.And it's that message he wants people to get through his art, particularly next month when his first solo exhibition, "Spirituality and Man's Conflict," opens July 2 at the Artshowcase Gallery at 336 Charles St. in Baltimore. The show runs through July 11."I want to tell people that there is hope in the world. If they can find it in my art, then they can find it in themselves," says Janouris, who paints with his hands, not with a brush.
