Today Balancethebudget, a New York-based runner who has had some success at Pimlico, is the likely favorite in the seventh running of the Fire Plug Stakes. The six-furlong sprint, worth $75,000-added, has a field of six. Balancethebudget is 3-for-4 at Aqueduct this year. He was second in the Havre de Grace Stakes here last May, but is winless in local stakes competition. Travis Dunkleberger, who has become a regular on the Maryland circuit, will handle the 7-year-old for trainer Richard Schosberg.

The food was great, the service good, the company excellent, and while I always enjoy watching the horses come down the stretch at Pimlico from a table in the Terrace Room — or from just about anywhere, if you want to know the truth — I was more taken with the very loud, very animated, very stressed ponytailed gambler a couple of tables to our north. I mean, you want entertainment, you can't beat the people at Pimlico, even on days when the attendance is thin. First of all, on my way up the stairs to the clubhouse and the restaurant, I meet Tony Sassafras.

As sleek as any thoroughbreds, models paraded down a runway in Pimlico's clubhouse, decked out in clothes from Octavia for the Luck Be a Lady Fashion Show and Casino Night. Though all of the outfits were declared winners, the major "oohs" and "aahs" came at the end of the show, when models donned slinky evening gowns designed by Anne Bowen. The New York designer took a bow, along with her favorite model, Oksana Babiy, who now plays Tony's mistress on HBO's "The Sopranos." The glitzy evening, sponsored by the Maryland Jockey Club of Baltimore Inc., garnered about $45,000, benefiting the Johns Hopkins Breast Center.

Today In the race prior to the Pimlico Special, 11 3-year-olds will line up to contest the 27th running of the Hirsch Jacobs Stakes. The 6-furlong dash, worth $75,000-added, is a wide-open affair that has attracted several newcomers to the local crowd. Trainer Ben Perkins Jr. has entered Max's Pal, unbeaten this year until he met Grade III runners in the Gotham Stakes. The win and place finishers of Delaware Park's Zwaanendal Stakes were also on the shippers list. Stormin Oedy upset the Delaware event as a 11-to-1 shot, while the favorite, Sejm Boogie, finished second.

I don't know about you, but I am captivated by time-lapse video and photography. Maybe it's that whole MTV generation phenomenon. If you, too, have a short-attention span, you will probably enjoy this time-lapse video of Pimlico preparing for Saturday's 136th running of the Preakness Stakes:

Bankrupt Magna Entertainment Corp. has for the third time delayed the sale of Laurel Park, Pimlico Race Course and the Preakness Triple Crown Race. The auction is now scheduled for Feb. 23, according to court records. A hearing to approve the plan has been resheduled for March 3. The company did not give a reason for the delay in court records. However, many close to the proceedings have said Magna is waiting to see if opponents of slots at Arundel Mills are able to get enough signatures on a petition to put the issue on the ballot in November.

The former owner of Pimlico Race Course and Laurel Park is fighting to keep intact a profit-sharing agreement that would split any potential slots proceeds with the racetracks' bankrupt owner, Magna Entertainment Corp. Late last week, attorneys for Joseph De Francis initiated an adversary proceeding, or the bankruptcy court equivalent of a civil lawsuit, asking a federal bankruptcy judge to reject Magna's request to terminate the profit-sharing deal with De Francis and other former owners.
