Federal prosecutors pursuing a drug money case based in part on a police dog whose certification has been questioned said in court filings this week that the dog might actually have been properly trained. The case stems from the seizure of $122,000 in suspected drug money at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport last fall. An attorney for a woman who claims the money is hers asked a judge to throw out the case, alleging that prosecutors used a faked K-9 training certificate produced by the Maryland Transportation Authority Police to bolster their case.

Although still unproven in Grade I company, the 4-year-old colt seems to fit the 10 furlongs perfectly and should finish fast with Angel Cordero Jr.Still, the quixotic Algenib is a South American champion who looks superb and is the horse to beat.

McCarthy, a former jockey and Maryland horse trainer who is now a Florida-based jockey agent, saw a horse poised for the moment. "I thought his composure was amazing," McCarthy said.

I recently adopted a 4-year-old beagle who's very sweet and very high-strung. He has to be with me all the time and seems to be a nervous wreck much of the time, pacing and panting and barking at every little noise. We're new to each other, but do you have suggestions on ways I might get him to calm down a bit? Congrats on adopting a new pet!  It takes four to six weeks for dogs to get acclimated to their new family and surroundings.  However, he may be starting to show the signs of separation anxiety.

A day after California Chrome won the Preakness, his trainer raised the startling possibility he might not try for the Triple Crown because of New York rules barring a nasal adhesive strip the colt has used in recent races. If California Chrome were to win the Belmont Stakes on June 7, he'd capture the first Triple Crown in 36 years. The possibility that the charismatic horse will pull off the sport's signature achievement has the thoroughbred racing world abuzz. For years, racing lovers have said the sport needs a superstar in the mold of Secretariat or Seattle Slew to mitigate declines in attendance and mainstream interest.

"I knew my future was somewhere else," she said.

Mounted next to Stall 40 in the Preakness Stakes barn at Pimlico Race Course is a three-foot plaque emblazoned by black-eyed susan flowers. Each year, Stall 40 houses the Kentucky Derby winning thoroughbred, and the adjacent wooden sign commemorates the horses that ended their stay at Pimlico with a Preakness victory. If trainers were immortalized on the plague, John Servis would find his name near the bottom, next to one of the latest celebrated horses. Ten years ago, Servis trained Smarty Jones to wins in the 2004 Derby and Preakness before just falling short of claiming the Triple Crown with a second-place finish at the Belmont Stakes.
