The uncertainty of the 1995 season was in evidence yesterday as the Orioles held their eighth annual Winter Carnival at Camden Yards. But perhaps not as much as some may have suspected.Reaction to the labor dispute that has had baseball shut down since Aug. 12 was mixed among the 6,050 fans in attendance.

If Cormorant's Flight's recent performances are any indication, Peter Angelos may be headed for a very successful year.The Orioles owner's mare delivered another top-flight effort at Laurel Park yesterday, leading from wire to wire over 1 1/8 miles to dominate the $75,000 Maryland Race Writers Handicap.Distance was the question for the daughter of Cormorant out of Double Suez. She had won the Francis Scott Key Stakes three weeks earlier -- but at six furlongs.But, after getting distracted briefly at the three-eighths pole, Cormorant's Flight responded to jockey Mario Pino's urging with another strong move and won going away.
