The real Malibu Moonshine showed up yesterday at Laurel Park, driving to a narrow victory in the $50,000 Private Terms Stakes. The chestnut son of Malibu Moon had created a flurry of interest when he won Laurel Park's Miracle Wood in February, but raised doubt when he ran fourth in the Battaglia Memorial March 5 at Kentucky's Turfway Park. Yesterday, the newest star of trainer King Leatherbury's stable reinforced his credentials as one of the leading 3-year-olds in Maryland as he won by a neck in completing the race in 1 minute, 40.04 seconds for a mile.

The first time Larry Murray attempted to show Pickupspeed how to break from the starting gate, the then-2-year-old horse took two steps out, turned around and started walking back. A trainer of horses at Laurel Park, Murray knew he was in trouble. "They're like elephants," Murray said. "They don't forget anything. I thought, `This is not good.' " Yesterday, Murray stood in the winner's circle at Laurel, celebrating Pickupspeed's victory in the $75,000 Private Term Stakes. Now a 3-year-old gelding nominated to the Triple Crown races, Pickupspeed broke eighth -- at least he beat one horse from the gate -- and then weaved his way through the field for a three-length victory.

Water Cannon put visions of the Preakness squarely in the minds of those who watched the Maryland-bred gelding trounce a field of six 3-year-olds yesterday in the $60,000 Private Terms Stakes at Laurel Park. Sent to the post as the 4-5 favorite, Water Cannon trumped his impressive victory in the Miracle Wood Stakes here last month when he stayed with a tepid pace, made a move at the pacesetter and then shot past Mahican to take command. He finished under wraps in 1 minute, 45.42 seconds for the nine-furlong race, which is only 1/16th of a mile shy of the Preakness distance.
