HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. - You almost heard of Rick Violette last year. A man for whom he trains horses nearly bought Funny Cide two years ago. And last year, of course, Funny Cide won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, thrusting his trainer, Barclay Tagg, into the national spotlight. Violette, 51, spent 2003 as he has spent his entire 25-year training career - out of the spotlight and in the trenches. But this year, he is making headlines with Read the Footnotes, the No. 1-ranked Kentucky Derby contender in the National Thoroughbred Racing Association's weekly poll.

Anatomy of a Scratch, Scene I (5:30 a.m. yesterday): The night sky is just beginning to brighten when Brian Battistella, the groom for Citadeed, arrives at Pimlico and ducks into stall 17 of the stakes barn. A big day is planned. Citadeed is scheduled to work five-eighths of a mile, his last serious exercise before Saturday's Preakness.Battistella drops to his knees in the straw and unwraps the bandages on his horse's legs: the first order of business in any thoroughbred barn. Three of Citadeed's legs are fine, but on the left front there is minor swelling just above the sesamoid bone.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Just eight weeks ago, after a gut-wrenching victory in the Fountain of Youth Stakes at Gulfstream Park, Klaravich Stable's Read the Footnotes was all the rage. The colt had won three consecutive graded races and was on top or close to the top on everyone's Kentucky Derby list. But when he took to the track Thursday morning at Palm Meadows in Boynton Beach for one of his last major works before the May 1 Derby, there was little interest, with only four people in the clocker's stand.

ELMONT, N.Y. -- In the past five weeks, Rick Violette has spent much of his time nursing a horse's injured ankle and quarreling with government bureaucrats.In between, he's developed Citadeed into the horse who is given the best chance -- but still not much of one -- to upset D. Wayne Lukas' powerful duo of Timber Country and Thunder Gulch in tomorrow's Belmont Stakes.Looking for an Oliver's Twist-type long shot to wedge in exactas between the Lukas favorites?Consider Citadeed, who stepped off a plane from England in near obscurity before the Kentucky Derby, was withdrawn from the Preakness because of a nasty-looking ankle abscess and now suddenly has emerged as a Belmont contender.

HOW DOES a child learn history -- not textbook history, but the bone-deep family stories that frame young lives? Aaron Maybin, 11, is a sixth-grader at Patapsco Middle School who reads books and listens to the speeches of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. on tape. He entered a watercolor in the African American Youth Art Exhibition held at the Baltimore Convention Center on Feb. 12 and placed third. His entry, "Past Meets Future," portrayed a young, anonymous hero emerging from a group of black leaders -- King, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Malcolm X, Kweisi Mfume and Nelson Mandela.
