Hey, c'mere. I got a hot tip from the track. Keep this under your hat. What? You don't have a hat? Never mind. Here's the tip: Bet the ranch dressing on Pine Bluff in the Preakness. Or is that just bet the ranch?Anyway, this tip is from a guy who's called the winner for 14 straight Preaknesses. Got that? Pine Bluff in the Preakness. Here, put $2 down for me. Why just $2? I don't have any ranch dressing on me.OK, enough about salad dressing. The fact is that ABC's Dave Johnson, the network's race caller and analyst, likes Pine Bluff in tomorrow's Preakness (4:30 p.m., channels 13, 7)

Pine Bluff, Ark.--When one thinks of an Arkansas tourist destination, this small city on the bank of the Arkansas River hardly comes to mind. It's not in the scenic Ozarks, nor in the Ouachitas. It's not on a main route to anywhere.Nor has it figured prominently in the life of a president.So who goes to Pine Bluff and why?Good questions, I'd say.Not enough tourists, they say, as the powers-that-be go about creating a new image for Arkansas' fourth largest town (population, 54,734).Arkansas' City of Murals is the goal.

Allen Smith scored 14 points, including a pair of 3-pointers during Arkansas-Pine Bluff's second-half surge to a 61-44 victory over Winthrop (19-14) in the NCAA tournament's opening game in Dayton, Ohio. The Golden Lions (18-15) will play Duke - the No. 1 seed in the West - on Friday in Jacksonville, Fla., a stunning development for a team that lost its first 11 games of the season - all on the road - before rallying to earn the Southwestern Athletic Conference title and its first NCAA tournament berth.

His two-run double sparked a nine-run inning to propel Lexington, Ky., into the Cal Ripken 12-and-Under World Series playoffs, which start today in Aberdeen. Kundick, who plays golf, used his driving swing for the bases-loaded double, breaking a 3-3 tie in the fifth inning and leading to a 12-3 rout of Waite Park, Minn. "It felt really good because I had not hit the ball well since our first game," said Kundick, whose team took second in the American Division.

Jarrett Arakawa of Oahu, Hawaii, has revealed the secret to his pitching the gem of the Cal Ripken World Series thus far in Aberdeen.

After salting up with the legal substance, Arakawa went out Sunday and pitched a three-hitter with a tournament-high 13 strikeouts and no walks in a 1-0 victory over Pine Bluff, Ark.

Tropical Storm Charley stayed away from opening day of the Cal Ripken World Series at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen yesterday until the third game. The rain started falling in the bottom of the fifth inning of the 12-and-under tournament as Kennewick, Wash., was collecting hits and runs to overcome an 8-1 deficit at the hands of Greenwich, Conn. Kennewick cut it to 8-6 with two outs and a man on when play was stopped and the tarp put on the field. Play never resumed and the Kennewick-Greenwich game will pick up at the point of stoppage and be completed at Cal Sr.'s Yard (next door to Ripken Stadium)

It was a pretty good horse race yesterday, and, when you start handing out the credit, don't forget Arazi.Yeah, that's right, Arazi. Remember him? The best horse since Secretariat? The best thing out of France since nouvelle cuisine? He's back home -- 3,000 miles and an ocean removed from Pimlico, feeding on pate de foie gras or whatever it is horses dine on in old Chantilly -- licking his wounds.But the reason you can't forget Arazi is that when he faded down the stretch at Churchill Downs two Saturdays ago, he managed to save the Preakness in the process.
