LAUREL -- Front-runners swept the two stakes at Laurel Race Course yesterday, but there were a couple of tense moments and one tragedy that marred the card.Andrea Seefeldt received her share of fan abuse after Star Minister, a 2-5 favorite, clung to the narrowest of victories in the $100,000 Twixt Stakes.The temperamental filly, whom Seefeldt said is so high-strung she resents jockeys, held on by a nose to defeat 6-1 shot Gammy's Alden. But Seefeldt's sit-still ride without so much as a flick of the whip contrasted sharply with Mike Luzzi's late drive on the rail with Gammy's Alden.

Her horse finished a resounding last in the Kentucky Derby last weekend: 16 lengths behind next-to-last. "Doesn't matter," Andrea Seefeldt said. Her horse could well finish last again today in the Pimlico Special. But again: doesn't matter.That she just has a ride in these races, that her name is there in the program with Day, Stevens and the others, that she has come far enough to be there -- that is what matters. If you don't understand, you don't know the story.You don't know she failed the first time she tried to make it as a jockey, winding up as a secretary in Donald Trump's empire.

"But I thought he ran impressively. He was awesome."Seefeldt, who has been riding at Oaklawn Park, made her second appearance of the winter at Laurel, rushing up from last place on the backside after she gave the horse "a little nudge."

Bad Boy Willy has a distinction among the approximately 2,000 thoroughbreds stabled at Maryland tracks -- he earns his keep by not winning races.Yesterday the 3-year-old colt, who has yet to win in 21 starts, finished second -- for the 11th time this year.In doing so, he has earned $42,450, about double the estimated annual cost of keeping a thoroughbred in training. Nellie Cox, of Goochland, Va., who owns the horse in partnership with William Collins, isn't complaining. She hit the exacta in the seventh race yesterday when Bad Boy Willy, the favorite, was beaten by a neck by 51.80-1 long shot Lullbeforethestorm.
