Harford County has had many big-time sports moments in its glorious history. Perhaps none were bigger, however, than the one that happened 30 years ago this week. That's when Harford County's own Deputed Testamony won the 1983 Preakness, bringing home the second of the three jewels of the Triple Crown of thoroughbred horse racing contested each year. The Triple Crown, for horse racing novices, is the Kentucky Derby on the first Saturday in May, the Preakness down the road at Pimlico in Baltimore on the third Saturday in May and the Belmont Park in Elmont, N.Y., on Long Island three Saturdays later.

The Boniface family of Bonita Farm in Darlington has been through a lot this year. Benjamin Boniface, 20, died when he lost control of his pickup truck on the private farm lane early one morning in June after "he failed to negotiate a curve," according to the Harford County Sheriff's Office. And Deputed Testamony, their home-bred who was the oldest living Triple Crown race winner and the last Maryland-bred horse to win the Preakness, passed away at age 32 in September. But the Boniface family, like their horses, is made of hardy stock.

Reputed Testamony could overcome a jinx today.The 5-year-old horse, one of the most durable runners on the local circuit and the hero a few months ago in the Maryland Million Classic, has never won a stakes event on his home grounds at Laurel Race Course.He has won plenty of allowance races at Laurel and been second in the Northern Dancer Stakes and Native Dancer Handicap and third in the Congressional Handicap.But a Laurel stakes victory has eluded the son of 1983 Preakness winner Deputed Testamony.

Last year, Judy Kane stood in the Maryland Million winner's circle weeping with joy.Yesterday, she stood outside, shedding tears of dismay, wondering if her horse, Reputed Testamony, was alive.Her husband, Matt, had just commandeered a golf cart and careened across the infield at Laurel Race Course to see if their horse had survived the first near-fatal spill in the eight-year history of the Maryland Million Classic.The 6-year-old thoroughbred, favored in the betting to win his second straight Classic, had collided with another horse during the running of the $150,000 event and sent his jockey, former national champion Kent Desormeaux, hurtling into the dirt.

J.R.'s Horizon ran well enough last year to earn a Preakness berth. He didn't come close, as history will forever note, to winning his first stakes.That came yesterday. The gelding that trainer Meredith "Mert" Bailes called "Little J.R." led for every step in the $125,000 John B. Campbell Handicap at Pimlico Race Course, barely holding off an inside rally from favored Reputed Testamony.The 4-year-old was ridden by Calixto Juarez, a 20-year-old apprentice who was also winning his first stakes.

LAUREL -- Yesterday was a day for snow, mud, scratches, Lasix and a building Double Triple pool at Laurel Race Course.Only in the featured $16,000 allowance event, where Darinka scored at 4-1 odds under jockey Joe Rocco, did a winner not run on Lasix, the medication used to prevent bleeding.And in the fifth race, the second half of the Double Triple, Supreme Testamony's victory at 35-to-1 guaranteed no winning bettors in the Double Triple, which has escalated to $172,352.20 for today's card.

His back is swayed like a Nike swoosh. His shaggy coat, a sign of age, would warm a woolly mammoth. At 28 - ancient for horses - Deputed Testamony looks like he should live at Charlestown. The retirement community, not the racetrack. Yet there he was, at 8 a.m., cavorting like a youngster in a grassy 2 1/2 -acre paddock at Bonita Farm in Darlington. In a nearby paddock, another stallion ambled nearer. In a flash, Deputed Testamony crested his neck in defiance and gave the interloper the stink eye. Hardly the spirit you'd expect of the oldest surviving Preakness winner.

Legal Control battled foot problems and Preakness runner Malibu Moonshine in his most recent efforts and didn't fare well. Both experiences were behind him yesterday and the son of Thunder Gulch returned to front-running form, holding off Monster Chaser and It's Time to Smile to win the $50,000 Deputed Testamony Stakes at Pimlico Race Course. With Luis Garcia replacing regular rider Jozbin Santana, Legal Control needed sound hooves to prevail by a head over Monster Chaser, who was a neck in front of It's Time to Smile.

A wall of horses parted before him and Magic Weisner barreled through to win his third stakes race in a row, this time the $75,000 Deputed Testamony Stakes yesterday at Laurel. Odds-on favorite Touch Love, the only filly in the field of five, tired and finished last. Touch Love, a two-time stakes winner, had been expected to take the lead in the 8 1/2 -furlong race, but two geldings were bent upon denying her the front. Root With Style rushed outside and passed the filly early and Majestic Sir joined the pair down the backstretch.

The New York invader swept to the front immediately and never yielded ground while racing to an easy nine-length victory over previously unbeaten Inner Harbour in the $75,000 Deputed Testamony Stakes at Laurel Park. Jockey Tommy Turner, a former competitor on the Maryland circuit, flew in from Gulfstream Park for the joy ride on Acres in the 1 1/8-mile race restricted to Maryland-bred 3-year-olds.

"But I liked the way he looked in the ring and the way he moved."With jockey David Appleby in the irons, Smart Guy stalked an honest pace for six furlongs, then exploded to the front and went on to win by 9 1/4 lengths over another long shot, Scootch.
