LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- When you ask for the story behind a Kentucky Derby horse's name, you never know what you might hear. Owners name their horses after children, movies, sires and dams -- almost anything, really. In the case of Captain Steve, a colt trained by Bob Baffert and entered in Saturday's Derby at Churchill Downs, the name traces to a story about a gun, a cop, a couple of hours in jail and a lot of beer. It's not exactly a remake of "Black Beauty," but given Baffert's Derby record, which includes a second and two firsts since 1996, it could become the next piece of racing lore.

Mike Pegram arrived in town yesterday, which means a decision is at hand for local racing fans and hidebound Charm City loyalists.Do you forgive Pegram, owner of Real Quiet, for insulting Baltimore and the Preakness Stakes after his horse won the Kentucky Derby?Or do you not forget?The advice here is to lighten up, chill out, forgive and whatever."I meant no disrespect to Baltimore whatsoever," Pegram said yesterday at Pimlico. "Please accept an apology."Owner of 22 McDonald's franchises in the state of Washington, Pegram, 46, is a life-of-the-party guy with a bleacher-seat mentality -- more Memorial Stadium than Camden Yards, a perfect fit for Baltimore.

Mike Pegram climbed onto the fence behind the stakes barn at Pimlico Race Course and cracked open a can of beer.No champagne. No Black-eyed Susan. Not your typical millionaire horseman. The Triple Crown is still alive, and the guy whose horse just might win it would have been right at home on the infield. He's a Bud man."I had to sit with [trainer] Bob Baffert so he wouldn't choke," Pegram said with a laugh. "They promised me two cold Budweisers if I sat where ABC told me to. They actually offered me six, but I ended up getting two."

While Pegram watches to see if Silverbulletday will become the richest filly or mare in history, her trainer will remain in California for the Swaps Stakes at Hollywood Park.

STANTON, Del. - Mike Pegram searched Delaware Park in vain for a can of beer. He found plenty of draft, but Pegram, the down-to-earth owner of champions, drinks his beer only from cans. He named his favorite horse after the cans known as "silver bullets." And yesterday, Silverbulletday, Pegram's two-time Eclipse-Award-winning filly, attempted to make history in the Delaware Handicap at Delaware Park. A crowd of 19,511 watched, the most to attend the races at Delaware Park since it reopened in 1984 after financial problems had shut it down.

The program is called International Student Company.Wei-sen Yang, 33, is one of about 75 students enrolled in classes at Aberdeen.

Mike Smith liked Giacomo the first time he saw him. The colt was only 2, a newcomer to John Shirreffs' barn at Hollywood Park, but Smith was smitten. Giacomo (JOCK-ah-moe) had the same beautiful, gray face as his father, Holy Bull. Smith, who was Holy Bull's regular rider, saw that immediately. And then, after breezing Giacomo for the first time, he saw that the colt had some of his father's ability as well. "I told John," Smith said, referring to Shirreffs, "that if we can just get this horse to the Kentucky Derby, then he's going to redeem his father's name."

The phone rang in Bob Baffert's pocket, interrupting another of his seemingly endless media interviews. Baffert answered his cell phone. "Yeah? ... OK." He put the phone back. "That was my doctor," he said. "My Valium just came in." Baffert nervous before a big race? If so, he hides it well. This is Baffert's sixth go-round on the Triple Crown trail, and the white-haired trainer from California still leads in quips and casual manner. Tomorrow, he will saddle Congaree and Point Given in the 126th Preakness Stakes at Pimlico.

Green said yesterday.

DOVER, Del. -- As in old movies about migrant workers, the men and their families travel from job to job. Every Thursday for 34 weeks of the year, their motor homes create temporary towns of 1,500 people. Then, after four days, they move on to the next dusty spot."First comes the community, then comes the factory," says Ron Pegram, who ministers to this thriving ensemble.This is the way of life in the Winston Cup Series of auto races that runs from February to mid-November. The families set up housekeeping in the racetrack infields while the men go about the business of professional stock-car racing.

Pegram's Real Quiet just missed last year, losing the Belmont by a heart-crushing nose after winning the Kentucky Derby and Preakness.This year it's Charismatic pursuing the Triple Crown and his owners, Beverly and Bob Lewis, eyeing the bonus.
