ELMONT, N.Y. - Bobby Frankel, trainer of Aptitude, the Belmont favorite, was extremely unhappy with his jockey, Alex Solis. After Aptitude finished a driving second in the Kentucky Derby, Frankel skipped the Preakness, saying that the A.P. Indy colt would have a better chance of winning the longer Belmont. Yesterday, after Aptitude dropped to last early and then ran his heart out to get up for second, the outspoken Frankel blasted Solis' ride. "I'm very disappointed," Frankel said. "He was way too far back.

Workers peered through safety goggles as they fitted together parts of the electric motors they were building on a General Motors assembly line in White Marsh. For now, the parts are made in a factory in Mexico and then shipped to Baltimore County for assembly. But not for long. By the end of the year, motors for cutting-edge electric vehicles will be built from scratch in a sprawling $244 million plant under construction next to GM's factory, now called General Motors Baltimore Operations.

Senate agrees to debate vote for D.C. WASHINGTON: The people of the District of Columbia were closer to gaining the voting rights they were deprived of more than two centuries ago after the Senate agreed yesterday to take up a bill giving them a fully vested representative in Congress. The Senate vote to debate the bill sets the stage for more legislative hurdles and a probable court challenge if the bill is enacted into law. But with the Senate action, the district's 600,000 residents have their best chance of securing a real voice in Congress since a proposed constitutional amendment to enfranchise the federal capital failed a quarter-century ago. The bill would give the district a vote in the House starting in January 2011.

NEW YORK -- The scene remains vivid: Two gutsy horses, finally freed of trouble, exploding down the stretch at Aqueduct in a scintillating sprint to the wire. Red Bullet and Aptitude stamped that vision into memory in the Gotham Stakes three weeks ago at Aqueduct. Red Bullet remained undefeated, and the surging Aptitude finished a half-length behind in one of the most inspiring skirmishes on this year's Triple Crown trail. Tomorrow, those two and 10 others, including Jinny Vance's Postponed, will compete in the $750,000 Wood Memorial Stakes at Aqueduct.

"When I grow up, I want to be a supply chain analyst. " You don't hear these words too often - but I'm hoping that changes fast. When I was a child, my siblings and I would sit around the kitchen table and tell our parents about the jobs we might hold as adults. My mother bought me a bag with bandages and a toy thermometer; I wanted to be a nurse. Radiologic technologist, debit card specialist and, yes, supply chain analyst just weren't common terms back then. But today these jobs - and thousands more - are providing opportunities and hope to people entering or re-entering the workforce.

Questions have been swirling for more than three weeks about how Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro broke his right rear leg in the May 20 Preakness Stakes. The biggest one is: What happened?

THE TWO of them climbed aboard the No. 7 bus from Lombard and Broadway, in Fells Point, and they rode all the way out to upper Park Heights Avenue in Northwest Baltimore, where the big crowd filled the street to comfort itself and remember three children lost at the edge of a blade. And for a moment, in this city grown numb to wholesale murder, they helped turn a killing field into a holy place. Sarah Rodriguez, 72, stood there next to Curtis Allen, 45. They never knew the three slain children, nor had they known each other until now. Rodriguez, a retired baby sitter, arrived here from Argentina 60 years ago. Allen, a burly construction worker, is a Baltimore lifer.
