Onto Luck looked the part of a determined racehorse when he closed with a rush at Laurel Park yesterday and defeated 8-5 favored Without Remorse in the $31,975 Ambernash Stakes.But such perseverance has not always been the horse's trademark, said trainer Ned Allard.He had the ability but didn't concentrate. "He ran," Allard said, "in his first few starts like a horse that needed to be gelded."The necessary operation was performed and has been an unqualified success. The former loser has won three straight as a gelding, including yesterday's feature.

For the past few years, Dale Capuano has worn the mantle of Maryland's up-and-coming young trainer.Now he's got quite a worthy rival in Graham Motion, 31, who differs in both style and stable strategy.Capuano has shown he can bring along young horses and win stakes, but he still deals mostly in volume and claimers.Motion strictly develops young horses, mostly for breeders, and has a proven high win percentage -- about 39 percent so far at Laurel this summer with seven winners from 18 starters.

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.

Joe De Francis, the Maryland Jockey Club's chief executive officer, was all smiles at the Preakness Stakes draw yesterday, not at all put off by suggestions made during the ESPN broadcast that poor sportsmanship was being shown by the majority of trainers who chose not to bring their Kentucky Derby horses to the Preakness. "I think the problem was that Barbaro was so dominant trainers didn't want to face him again," De Francis said. "It's always a mixed blessing - or a double-edged sword - for a horse to win the Derby as easily as he did. The positive is that it generates excitement and enthusiasm for the Triple Crown among a lot of average spectators and the negative is it's very much tougher to convince the 19 trainers behind him to take him on in the Preakness.

The O'Donovans of Upperco are proof positive that good things come to those who wait. In the business of breeding thoroughbreds for more than 40 years and married for 60, they had never produced a graded stakes winner at a flat track. Until July 19, that is. On that Saturday, Perfect Moon, a 2-year-old gelding out of the O'Donovans' mare Perfectly, came from behind to capture the Grade III Hollywood Juvenile Championship on the final weekend at Hollywood Park in California. As octogenarians, the O'Donovans had scored a major breakthrough.
