Two feet of the horse's intestine were removed, and the son of Smarten remains in intensive care at the Manor Equine Hospital Center in Monkton.

The crisis at Barings is in keeping with its history. More than most firms, it has shown a willingness to invest abroad, often in markets that its competitors had deemed far too risky.It was Barings that arranged the financing for the United States' purchase of the Louisiana Territory from France in 1803. It was a transaction that seemed far too dangerous to some."We all tremble about the magnitude" of the loan, a Barings executive wrote that year.In recent years, Barings has staked out a position as a leader in research and trading in emerging markets, providing comprehensive evaluations of Latin American and Asian markets as those markets have zoomed and crashed.

Revelstoke, considered too slow and nervous to make it as a racehorse at Maryland's flat tracks, had the second-fastest running in the 100-year history of the Maryland Hunt Cup yesterday. The victory was the first for his rider-trainer, Jack Fisher, in the grueling, 4-mile steeplechase at Worthington Farms in Glyndon.The 9-year-old gelding defeated Florida Law, ridden by J. D. Gillet, by 7 3/4 lengths and completed the 22-jump timber course in 8 minutes, 37 2/5 seconds, 3 4/5 seconds off the record set in 1978 by Ben Nevis II."

Jack Fisher has won every major timber race in Maryland except one.There have been numerous scores as a rider or trainer at My Lady's Manor, a victory in the Grand National Point-to-Point and many wins at the unsanctioned meets at Howard County, Elkridge-Harford and Marlborough.But a victory in the Maryland Hunt Cup has eluded the 30-year-old horseman, who says he approaches the race with some trepidation."This is the one time where I don't ride with as much confidence because the fences are so much bigger," Fisher said.
