- As the draw for Preakness post positions came to an end Wednesday evening, Donna Peiffer's work was just beginning. Into the night she worked, turning a dozen colorful cloths into identification badges that will help millions of racing fans follow a favorite horse from starting gate to finish line. I'll Have Another, Bodemeister, Daddy Nose Best - each cloth was embroidered with the name and number around the Preakness logo. Folded neatly and placed in a plastic bin, they awaited a final inspection, a pressing and the trip to Pimlico Race Course . On Saturday, the cloths will be placed on the backs of the horses before saddles are cinched and the jockeys mount.

Forget what you think you know about a mule being an obstinate creature, given to sitting down with a frustrated rider on its back if the impulse strikes. Madison and Miranda Iager of Woodbine say they will be working to debunk the "stubborn as a mule" myth when they compete Thursday on Gato and Misdemeanor at the Howard County Fair in the Maryland High School Rodeo Association's first appearance since forming in November. "Gato is super funny, always trying to make you laugh," said Madison, 15. "And he's very, very personable.

I grew up riding horses and jumped at the chance to tune my skills with a lesson at Touch of Class Riding School in Aberdeen. Pulling into the driveway leading to Compass Farm, I realized I was in a thoroughbred sanctuary. Theresa Crowther, owner of the school, has 10 thoroughbreds and six ponies. While she spent most of her career working with racehorses, she has been teaching English riding for almost 10 years. The riding school offers lessons, summer camps, birthday parties and the chance to earn Scout badges.

This opener took 11 teams of contestants from the starting line at Santa Clarita, Calif., to Guangzho in China. Guangzho was formerly known as Canton. We call it Dullsville. "The Amazing Race" is back, Phil's back and 11 former teams are back (kind of). Everything is old, old old. Except us - we're debuting this season as the "Amazing Race" recappers for TV Lust. We three share an apartment, a need for constant diversion and not much else. Except we all love “Amazing Race.” If you picture a big Venn diagram, there would be a tiny, tiny sliver that shows how we only agree that the "Amazing Race” is cool.

Two years in the saddle - that's all the 15-year-old wanted when he set foot on the race course. A few turns round the track to fulfill his dream, before he outgrew his britches. "That would have made me happy," says Mario Pino. But the jockey lingered. He started winning, stopped growing, kept going. On he rode, steadily, unobtrusively, flying under the radar. Pino's horses responded; the victories mounted. As of today, as Pimlico opened its fall meet, he had 4,991. Surprised? Join the crowd.

Bright Bills Saddle-bill storks are found from Ethiopia to South Africa. They are easy to spot with their beautifully colored bill, which has black, yellow and red markings. The female and male look nearly identical, but the color of their eyes gives the away. Females have yellow irises, and males have black irises. What's for DINNER? Storks eat fish, bugs and mice. Do you know? How many eggs will a saddle-bill lay? Answer: Typically, they lay only one egg, while other storks can lay as many as five.

It started as a personal challenge: I watched Billy Crystal and the "City Slickers" ride roughshod across a movie screen, and decided if they could do it, and still sing afterward, so could I.A few weeks and half a lesson later, with the thundering hoofbeats of the great horse Silver echoing in my ears, I am trotting around a riding ring in Monkton astride the nice mare Toby.We are moving together, running in rhythm, heirs to the great frontier tradition. How wonderful it would be to do this often, I think, to have my thighs grow sleek and strong as I gallop along, graceful and self-assured.

The Navy men's basketball team is eager to end a three-game losing streak, but the Midshipmen's next opponent is enduring an even longer skid. Loyola (5-6) has dropped its last four games and six of its last seven. The Greyhounds and Navy (5-6) will meet Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at Reitz Arena in Baltimore in the Patriot League opener for both teams, but Midshipmen coach Ed DeChellis said there is a caveat to Loyola's losing streak. “I think if you look at their schedule, their schedule is very, very difficult,” DeChellis said Tuesday.

Caleb Dorsey "Mike" Pascal, a retired thoroughbred trainer whose Betrayed once paid $202 for a $2 bet, died of pneumonia complications Tuesday at Lorien Mays Chapel. The Monkton resident was 88. He was the son of Edward Louis Pascal and Frances Colgate Cherbonnier, a well-known Maryland horsewoman who was expelled from school when she was found riding astride, instead of sidesaddle. In 1910, she set a jumping record, according to her obituary in The Baltimore Sun. Mr. Pascal, who was born in Michigan, lived on a family estate known as Haille's Adventure and Betty's Delight, adjacent to the Timonium racetrack.

The top local entrant for Friday's 89th running of the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes at Pimlico took one wrong step on Thursday and had to be scratched. Walkwithapurpose, a Maryland-bred owned by Sagamore Farm in Glyndon, was expected to be one of the top contenders in the $500,000 Grade II race run at a mile and one-eighth for 3-year-old-fillies. Thursday afternoon, however, the Sagamore Farm filly had to drop out of the race after bruising her foot earlier in the day during her final gallop on the track at Pimlico in preparation for Friday's race.

Friday night's 11-8 setback to No. 4 Maryland extended Navy's losing skid to five consecutive games, which is the second such streak in the last three years for the program. The last time the team lost five straight, the academy jettisoned former coach Richie Meade and replaced him with current coach Rick Sowell. With Army (6-4) this Saturday and No. 15 Johns Hopkins (6-4) on April 20 remaining on the schedule, the Midshipmen (3-8) are in danger of setting a low with what could be the longest losing skid in the program's history.

The set for Babel: How It Was Done in Odessa features a large leather saddle suspended in front of a stunning modern tapestry of the sun. The saddle hangs there, unused and uncommented on, throughout the five short stories by Isaac Babel that make up the production. Possibly, the saddle is intended to suggest the omnipresent specter of the Cossacks, who plague the Russian Jews who are the protagonists of Babel's stories. But that's just a guess. Basically, the saddle remains a mystery -- like too much of this latest Theatre Project offering.

"The Man Who Listens to Horses," by Monty Roberts. Random House. 258 pages. $23.This ought to be a fascinating book about a remarkable person. Monty Roberts says he has learned to talk with horses, and there is a substantial amount of evidence that he speaks the truth.Roberts claims to have discovered a body language he's dubbed Equus. He uses it to earn a horse's trust and persuade it to accept a rider -- without resorting to the time-honored subjugation known for good reason as "breaking" a horse.

McDaniel College freshman Caitlyn McSorley has never let her dyslexia get in the way of helping others. Instead, it was the catalyst for doing so. "I was diagnosed with dyslexia, and throughout school a lot of the times I felt I was on the receiving end of help," said McSorley. "I wanted to give back. " And ever since elementary school, McSorley, 19, has found ways to do just that. She's volunteered with Best Buddies, an organization promoting one-to-one friendships for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

It seems that the man-made global warming scare, long promoted by those opposed to the burning of fossil fuel, is now behind us. It turns out that there is no unanimity of scientists supporting man-made global warming theory and never has been. It's also now becoming widely recognized that there is no incontrovertible evidence that global warming is caused by human activity, and that there is quite a bit of evidence that human activity is not a primary cause of such warming. It's becoming better known that for at least 240,000 years, a rise in CO2 has followed rather than preceded global warming.
