Voss Memorial, the feature race at the Elkridge-Harford Point-to-Point yesterday.Trained by Tom Voss and ridden by Mike Elmore, Welter Weight relaxed until the final two fences of the three-mile race before running down Florida Law.

Tom Voss answered his cell phone Friday, a frigid morning for man or beast. I asked him how John's Call was doing. "I'm looking at him right now," Voss said. "He's doing great. He's got a bright look in his eye. He just looks fantastic." Even the cold at Voss' farm in Monkton couldn't keep him from feeling almost giddy at the mention of John's Call. The old boy, now 12, took Voss on the most thrilling ride of his splendid training career: Two Grade I victories and a trip to the Breeders' Cup in 2000.

They are neighbors in the northern Baltimore County manor, separated by rolling tracts of countryside ideal for training long-distance runners. Their rivalry is intense yet civil, and, in a manner of speaking, they are on the same side. Between them, Tom Voss and Jack Fisher have won six of the past eight National Steeplechase Association training championships and seven of 11. Entering today's eighth annual Races at Shawan Downs, they have amassed 15 victories each this season and are tied for the lead, five in front of their closest competitors.

FAIR HILL -- Two years ago, the talented mare Guelph was being prepared for the $30,000 Valentine Memorial Sport of Queen's Stakes when she suddenly reared and flipped, compromising her chances to capture the only major race that has eluded her. "She had 16 fractures in her withers I was told later," trainer Tom Voss said. "And she only got beat by a nose." Yesterday, before a sun-bathed crowd at the 74th annual Fair Hill Races, there was no repeat. Guelph did everything right, dominating throughout the 2 1/4 mile jumping event, and added the Valentine to her resume with a wire-to-wire victory.

While flat racing struggles with fewer horses and declining revenues, the steeplechase circuit is enjoying steady progress. Proof of that can be seen in a perusal of the entries for today's annual Fair Hill Races, which have drawn bulging fields for the eight-race program that will begin at 1 p.m. at the picturesque Cecil County layout. With expected cooperation from the weather, an estimated 12,000 are expected to view a card headlined by the $30,000 Valentine Memorial for fillies and mares, a 2 1/4 -mile test over national fences.

When Coal Dust was a youngster of 3, flat trainer Jimmy Murphy recommended that he be shifted to jumping, an unusual suggestion for a horse of that age. He even thought the horse could someday win the Maryland Hunt Cup. "Jimmy rode jumpers, so he knows what they look like," said Thomas Voss, who accepted his friend's view and converted Coal Dust into a steeplechaser. "On the flat, the horse was just a big, old rambling thing, and Jimmy thought he could be a pretty good timber horse. He did me a favor."

The Tom Voss-trained entry of Welter Weight and Sam Sullivan will be the horses to beat today in the $30,000 Grand National Steeplechase at Butler. Defending Grand National champion Welter Weight, a model of consistency, and Sam Sullivan finished 1-2 two weeks ago in the Elkridge-Harford point-to-point feature at Voss' farm and will not have to contend with 2000 Maryland Hunt Cup winner Swayo, who is sidelined by an injury. Nine entries are scheduled to vie in today's race, a three-mile test over timber fences beginning at 3:30 p.m. However, five of those are cross-entered in the secondary feature, the $15,000 Benjamin H. Murray Memorial, and some are likely to be scratched from the Grand National.
