An elderly Reisterstown man died Saturday morning in an accident on Interstate 83 near Shawan Road in Hunt Valley, according to Maryland State Police. Henry Lee Cote, 81, died at the scene, police said. Cote, driving a northbound pickup truck, was trying to pass another vehicle at the time of the crash, police said. But he returned to his lane too quickly and clipped the front of the vehicle he was passing, according to investigators. Cote's truck rolled over and he was thrown from it. He was not wearing a seatbelt, police said.

HOMEBUILDERS won't get their hands on 291 acres of prime real estate in horse country on Shawan Road in Baltimore County -- and that's a good thing. Horses will continue to run on this land, thanks to a decades-old strategy of giving tax credits to people who promise not to develop their property. For more than 30 years, the Maryland Environmental Trust has been receiving donations of easements on undeveloped land throughout Maryland. By donating development rights, landowners obtain tax credits that allow them to reduce their federal and state taxes.

Haddix has danced every dance in Maryland during this steeplechase season, and he finally became the king of the ball. The 9-year-old gelding owned by Armata Stables stalked the pace for nearly three miles, then made his move under Roddy Mackenzie to win Saturday's 11th running of the Legacy Chase at Shawan Downs. It was redemption of a sort for Haddix, who didn't have the best of racing luck at My Lady's Manor, the Grand National or in the Maryland Hunt Cup but nonetheless was the only horse in all three spring races.

With the historic Hayfields farm all but lost to the construction of a golf course and houses, a dozen Baltimore County residents are drawing a new line on development by joining to preserve one of the largest farms in the scenic Worthington Valley.The group has a $2.5 million contract to buy 291-acre Shawan Farms, a rolling tract of cornfields and woodlands that lies just a mile west of Hayfields -- and was up for grabs to developers.In a bid to slow the suburban sprawl that has spilled into the county's rural northern valleys, the group plans to form a nonprofit organization to manage the land and perhaps hold horse races there.

At first glance, it would appear that the 10th annual steeplechase card at Shawan Downs Saturday is in for a rough ride. The race that has served as the program signature since the program was instituted at the picturesque Baltimore County course, the Legacy Chase, was eliminated this year because of a lack of entries for an open claiming timber event. And, at Monmouth Park in New Jersey, a five-race steeplechase offering is being conducted for $ $250,000 in purse money, nearly four times what the Shawan program can provide.

Lou Raffetto surveyed the scene: pouring rain, standing water on much of the course, riders buckling up to battle horrid conditions and officials scurrying to ensure there would be sufficient entries to conduct the feature races yesterday at Shawan Downs' eighth annual Legacy Chase. "At Pimlico and Laurel, you wouldn't even see the jockeys get out of the [jockeys] room on a day like this," said Raffetto, formerly CEO at those Maryland flat tracks and now holding a similar position with the National Steeplechase Association.

They are neighbors in the northern Baltimore County manor, separated by rolling tracts of countryside ideal for training long-distance runners. Their rivalry is intense yet civil, and, in a manner of speaking, they are on the same side. Between them, Tom Voss and Jack Fisher have won six of the past eight National Steeplechase Association training championships and seven of 11. Entering today's eighth annual Races at Shawan Downs, they have amassed 15 victories each this season and are tied for the lead, five in front of their closest competitors.

Bus shuttles will serve the five northernmost light rail stops in Baltimore County starting later this month while a crossing at Warren Road is replaced, and some riders said yesterday they are not looking forward to the change. "I think it's going to be a lot more of a headache because there's always two trains and enough space for passengers to sit down. The buses will be more crowded," said Kamille Morton, 17, a Paul Laurence Dunbar High School junior who commutes from Cold Spring to Shawan Road in Hunt Valley, the last stop on the line, to get to her job at a nearby Wendy's.

Irish Prince certainly looks ready to assume the throne in timber racing. The New Zealand-bred gelding fended off several serious challengers yesterday and climbed to the lead in money winnings among timber horses over injured Salmo by rallying to beat Bubble Economy by a little more than a length in the $25,000 Ski Roundtop Stakes at Shawan Downs. Trainer Jack Fisher threw nearly everyone but the stable pony at Irish Prince by running four horses in the race, but settled for second, third and fourth on a gorgeous afternoon in Baltimore County.
