Almost five months ago, the company that operates the steam tunnels that snake beneath Baltimore pledged a $6.6 million upgrade to its system - an effort that officials said would smooth the bumpy ride motorists face downtown. But now, the company, Trigen, is months behind schedule, and the cost of the project is beginning to exceed estimates, utility officials told the city yesterday. That means some roads - specifically Baltimore and Saratoga streets - will remain rough for at least a few more months.

Bernardini will not be overlooked again. The 3-year-colt outclassed the field in the $500,000 Jim Dandy Stakes at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. yesterday, proving that his victory in the Preakness Stakes was no fluke. "There was a lot of doubt in people's minds about the Preakness," winning trainer Tom Albertrani said. "Today, he showed us what a really good horse he is." Albertrani has been raving about Bernardini ever since the colt's 5 1/4 -victory in the May 20 Preakness, a race that will be remembered as the one in which Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro shattered his right hind leg. Bernardini, with jockey Javier Castellano, took the lead around the first turn and was never challenged by Minister's Bid or Sunriver.

A month ago, a horse rolled over jockey John Velazquez during a race at Keeneland, breaking his collarbone and collapsing his lung. The injuries aren't life-threatening, but they are a reminder of how close jockeys are to devastating, life- and career-threatening injuries. With the accident fresh in his memory, Velazquez yesterday joined with Don Amos, Magna Entertainment Corp.'s chief operating officer, to announce the launch of the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund, a charity established to provide aid to permanently disabled jockeys and their families in North America.
