The senior cleared 5 feet, 10 inches in the high jump for the second time in two weeks at Friday's Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland meet at the Prince George's Sports and Learning Complex. She also finished second in the triple jump and long jump. A two-time All-Metro selection, Shuman is in only her third year as a high jumper, but 5-10 would have won the state public schools title in each of the four classifications last winter. Shuman, who is 6 feet tall, went to camps at Princeton and Shippensburg last summer and she plans to continue jumping in college.

Trainers Jerry Robb and Mark Shuman were suspended for 60 and 40 days, respectively, after a hearing before the Maryland thoroughbred racing stewards yesterday morning at Pimlico Race Course. The stiff penalties were the result of the use of the banned substance guanabenz, "a drug that can have a therapeutic effect, but should not have been in the horse on race day," according to the stewards. Horses trained by Robb and Shuman tested positive for guanabenz on five separate occasions last month while finishing first or second in their races.

Robert J. Shuman, the new president of Maryland Public Television, started his answer on the future of MPT conventionally enough, talking about its strength in children's programming and the need to find new "revenue streams" in the face of dwindling public dollars.But he wound up talking about how, growing up as the son of a U.S. Navy attache in Jakarta, he learned about the culture and values of Indonesia by watching puppet shows.He sees a lesson in that for TV executives -- especially for one whose network's stars are Big Bird, Ernie and Bert.

Trainer Mark Shuman's voice was full of anticipation. His 2-year-old colt, Travelin Leroy, will compete in today's $75,000 Maryland Juvenile Championship stakes at Laurel Park in what Shuman hopes will be the kickoff to a fine 3-year-old campaign. "Not to be cocky, but I think he's a better horse than the others in the race," Shuman said. "If I have him fit enough, not to put any other horse down, but if I have him fit enough, he will win." Shuman said Travelin Leroy is, perhaps, the best horse he has trained and that today's mile race will be the first in a series that he hopes will take him to the Kentucky Derby.

DAVID H. NEVINS, chairman of the board that oversees Maryland Public Television, predicted last week that theimminent naming of a new president for the station would be regarded as a coup.Indeed, Robert J. Shuman, the man chosen after a year-long search, has a long list of credentials: He developed satellite programming to reach children in the Appalachians and the Rocky Mountains in the pre-Internet 1970s. He co-founded cable TV's The Learning Channel in the '80s. And in the '90s, he has headed a Washington, D.C., company that trains community leaders via televised courses.

Maryland Public Television's Artworks This Week, which for six years has spotlighted the state's arts scene, will all but cease production at the end of this month, changing from a weekly program featuring new material to one devoted almost entirely to clips from old shows. Robert Shuman, MPT's president and chief executive officer, said the money and resources that would have been devoted to Artworks will be used to help push the station into the digital age. Like all broadcast TV stations, MPT must broadcast its signal digitally by February to meet a government mandate.

Maryland Public Television announced yesterday the largest gift in its history, a $1 million donation that will be used to help develop new programming. Maryland Public Broadcasting Commission Chairman Edward H. Kaplan and his wife, Irene Kaplan, have promised to give $1 million during the next four years for development in MPT's New Initiatives Campaign. The gift is at least twice as large as any other given at one time to Maryland Public Television and much larger than what the organization had asked for, said Robert J. Shuman, MPT's president and chief executive officer.

It's early morning, and Domenico Zannino is hanging on the first-turn rail at Timonium racetrack, clocking horses in preparation for next Monday's Fasig-Tipton sale. "It's a wonderful place to be," said the Highlandtown native, who is the majority owner of Xchanger, the 3-year-old who will run in the Preakness on Saturday. "The sun comes lifting up and the horses come galloping down the frontstretch. It's good stuff." Last year, Zannino was here doing the same thing, and that's when he spied horse No. 501. "I was looking for the conformation, the movement and the ability," he said.

Xchanger, the 3-year-old son of Exchange Rate and the winner of Saturday's Federico Tesio Stakes at Pimlico Race Course, still doesn't know where he will be on the first Saturday in May. Will he be at the Kentucky Derby or in his Fair Hill Training Center stall? The colt's owners, Circle Z Stables, which includes Baltimorean Domenico Zannino and trainer Mark Shuman, have the option of entering him in the Derby, looking ahead to the Preakness or selling him. Shuman said last night offers for at least seven figures have been received, but so far no one has hit "the magic" number.

Jockey Ramon Dominguez didn't expect the ride he got yesterday in the $125,000 Federico Tesio Stakes, but when his horse Xchanger told him to let loose the reins, Dominguez listened and rode off to a 4 3/4 -length victory that seemed like three times that. Xchanger won so easily in 1:49.98 that trainer Mark Shuman smiled broadly and couldn't help but nod yes when asked if the May 5 Kentucky Derby was back in play. "It's going to be a rough week," Shuman said of the decision ahead. "It will take a lot of talking, but in the end we'll try to do what's best for the horse."

Vegas Play, a 7-to-1 shot, nearly hit the rail coming down the stretch and was forced to swing to the outside, but the horse, trained by Hall of Famer Bud Delp, still had enough to win the Maryland Juvenile Championship at Laurel Park yesterday. Charging along the rail, Vegas Play had to be brought up short when Creve Coeur ducked to the rail mid-stretch. At that point, Vegas Play nearly hit the rail as jockey Richard Monterrey pulled hard on the reins to prevent a collision and swung his horse to the outside.
