TC Summer Squall has run only once this year.But the 1990 Preakness winner so impressed track oddsmaker Jeff Weissman with a morning workout yesterday that Weissman probably will make Summer Squall the early-line favorite to beat Unbridled, Jolie's Halo and Farma Way in the Pimlico Special Saturday."

The Baltimore Shakespeare Festival, a relative newcomer to the city's cultural scene, may be forced to cancel its coming summer season because it can't raise enough money to continue operations, its directors say.For the past two summers, the festival has presented Shakespearean dramas performed and directed by a professional cast. Throughout the academic year, the festival has taken abridged versions of its productions on the road to public schools throughout Maryland and Delaware.Beginning in June it is scheduled to produce "As You Like It" and, for children, "Winnie-the-Pooh" outdoors at the Cloisters.

Summer Squall drew the No. 1 post position for Saturday's Pimlico Special, but Jolie's Halo is still expected to set the pace.That was the scenario most trainers seemed to expect as they envisioned how tomorrow's $750,000 race would be run.CJolie's Halo drew the five-post in the seven-horse field. "My horse doesn't have to have the lead," Happy Alter, the trainer of Jolie's Halo said. "He can also come from off the pace. More or less it's going to be up to the jockeys to decide once the horses break and the race unfolds."

The last time a Preakness winner returned to run at Pimlico Race Course was in 1988, when 1987 Preakness winner Alysheba ran in the Pimlico Special.And now Summer Squall is here.But he has had just one sprint since a layoff, and trainer Neil Howard has found himself defending that strategy in the days leading up to today's Pimlico Special.When a horse has been away, conditioning always comes into question. Another factor to consider is the horse's tendency to show more early speed than might otherwise be expected.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- They'll not look back on the rivalry between Unbridled and Summer Squall and judge it among racing's greatest. It has not been one of nail-biting finishes or gut-wrenching stretch battles.If anything, it has been more of an enduring relationship than a rivalry, an off-and-on affair of five races in 18 months that will end tomorrow when the two meet for the sixth and final time as they race in the Breeders' Cup Classic at Churchill Downs.Summer Squall will retire to stud after the race; Unbridled probably will.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Summer Squall and Unbridled are set to meet for the first time since their 1-2 finish in the Preakness last year -- unless it rains.Unbridled's trainer Carl Nafzger said at Churchill Downs yesterday that Unbridled won't race against Summer Squall in the Pimlico Special this Saturday on a wet track."If it rains, we get the train," Nafzger said.Unbridled recently finished fifth in the Oaklawn Handicap on a sloppy track.The horse, who won both the Kentucky Derby and the Breeders' Cup Classic last year, is expected to fly to Baltimore today with a load of Preakness and Pimlico Special horses that have been stabled at Churchill Downs.

Their great showdown should have taken place in the 1990 Belmont Stakes, but 51 weeks after Unbridled last faced Summer Squall, it is better this way. The focus this time will be on racing, not a raging controversy that unfairly tainted their greatest triumphs.Both horses are expected to race with Lasix in Saturday's Pimlico Special, just as they did when Unbridled won last year's Kentucky Derby and Summer Squall last year's Preakness. The sound and the fury over their use of the drug has faded.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- Needing all the edge he got with an easy early lead, Marquetry turned back a determined bid by Farma Way to win the $1 million Hollywood Gold Cup yesterday.Marquetry, a 27-1 outsider, led throughout the 1 1/4 -mile race at Hollywood Park, finishing a head in front of Farma Way. The victory represented the richest in the 26-year career of trainer Bobby Frankel, once known as King of the Claimers.David Flores, 23, who is virtually unknown outside Southern California, rode Marquetry, a 4-year-old colt owned by the Juddmonte Farms.

Up until the question was asked, prompting Dogwood Stable manager Cot Campbell to roll his eyes, the L word had been largely forgotten this spring.And when, in front of a sizable audience at the Pimlico Special breakfast on Thursday, Campbell politely referred to Summer Squall's Lasix dependence,it revealed how different this year's Triple Crown campaign is on the Lasix issue.Which goes to show that timing is everything. Last year at thi time, and exhaustive Lasix study had been dropped into the collective lap of the racing press, leading to equally exhaustive media reviews of the drug and its effects on internal bleeding.

Trainer D. Wayne Lukas always has had a thing for records and the big time. Yesterday, his horse set a record when beating every big-timer in thoroughbred racing.Farma Way, owned by the Quarter B Farm of coffee-machine magnate George Bunn and ridden by Gary Stevens, led all the way to win the $750,000 Pimlico Special, a race billed as a battle of champions.His winning time of 1 minute, 52 2/5 seconds for 1 3/16 miles broke the stakes and Pimlico Race Course record, and it tied the American record set by Riva Ridge in 1973.

The field for the third running of the revived Pimlico Special divides almost too neatly into two groups of runners.There are three "speed" horses -- Jolie's Halo, Farma Way and Summer Squall.Then there is Silver Survivor, who runs in the middle of the pack, followed by three horses that come from distinctly off the pace -- Unbridled, Festin and Reputed Testamony.In order for the come-from-behind horses to have a good chance to wear down the front-runners, they need a fast pace.Chances are, they aren't going to get it.The riders of these horses are just too smart to fall into that trap.

It's a race within a race, the Preakness Redux, the rematch of Summer Squall vs. Unbridled.Tomorrow the two colts meet for the first time this year in what could be America's definitive horse race of 1991.That's how special this Preakness Special might be.There are great races yet to come this season, but Pimlico has brought it all together so early in the campaign.But for one last-minute scare yesterday, when there was a possibility that one of the horses might have to be scratched, all seven runners, including the two stars, are sound, fit and at the top of their game.

The Kentucky Derby had its Big Four. Tomorrow's Pimlico Special has big names, for sure, but whether it has the Big Two or the Big Five is unclear.Unbridled and Summer Squall are marquee names, ones that fans associate with victories in Triple Crown and Breeders' Cup races. At yesterday's breakfast draw for post positions, those two colts easily drew the most attention.DTheir three top foes in the $750,000 Special -- Jolie's Halo, Festin and Farma Way -- have less recognition value, but at this point they are rated as virtual equals with Unbridled and Summer Squall among knowledgeable racing people.
