Except for one Wide attempt, Silver Tango has shot straight every time.The filly sped down the center of the track in the $60,000 Politely Stakes at Pimlico Race Course yesterday, passing Overdue Ghost and giving her a 5-for-6 lifetime mark.Silver Tango's only loss came against Wide Country, the reigning local queen."I don't really want to run against her again soon," said trainer Gary Capuano, who trains Silver Tango for his mother, Constance. "I'll probably be giving her a little breather."

"He'd been too good to us to let him go toward the bottom," he said.

LAUREL -- Make no doubt, Wide Country was going to be a heavy favorite in today's $50,000-added Genuine Risk Stakes.But when Ten Out of Ten and Silver Tango -- a combined 6-for-7 lifetime -- turned up in the Laurel Race Course entries, it appeared the 3-year-old filly was going to have to work a bit harder than usual.Wide Country has been dominant in her division. She was named Maryland's top 2-year-old filly of 1990 last week, and she has won her past four starts.And her streak should go to five today: Ten Out of Ten and Silver Tango were scratched yesterday, leaving just five rivals for the champion.

LAUREL -- Shortly before Katy Voss left for a Caribbean vacation last week, she completed the sale of her 5-year-old mare, Wood So, to Louisiana oilman John Franks.The price? Voss' assistant, Sandy Richardson Goodman, acknowledged it was in the $250,000 range, but would not give an exact figure.It was quite a return for a horse who once competed in the $8,500 maiden claiming ranks.Franks, twice the nation's leading owner (in 1983 and 1984), left the mare in Voss' Laurel barn. She promptly won her first start in his green-and-orange silks yesterday in a $30,000 prep for the upcoming Barbara Fritchie Handicap.

Just because trainer Frank Alexander likes Maryland, hi reasons for traveling to Pimlico Race Course today aren't exactly pleasantries and nostalgia.Alexander, a Maryland regular in the 1970s, calls his former home "a great place. We've always been lucky shipping back there." And he's hoping the luck of the Irish will be with his promising 3-year-old, King Mutesa, in the $175,000 Federico Tesio Stakes on the St. Patrick's Day program at Pimlico.King Mutesa, Alexander says, is good enough to take him to the Kentucky Derby for the second straight year.
