    Background: IN HORSE RACING, ALL ATTENTION IS BEING FOCUSED ON LAUREL, MARYLAND, WHERE THE 100-THOUSAND DOLLAR WASHINGTON, D.C., INTERNATIONAL WILL BE RUN NEXT TUESDAY.

    AMONG YESTERDAY'S ARRIVALS AT LAUREL WAS THE IRISH HORSE, "BALLYMOSS" (CQ) -- OWNED BY JOHN MC-SHAIN (CQ), A PHILADELPHIA CONTRACTOR. LONDON REPORTS THAT BOOK-MAKING FIRMS THERE ARE RECEIVING "A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF MONEY FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD" ON "BALLYMOSS". SO MUCH MONEY, IN FACT, THAT THE BOOKIES HAVE STOPPED QUOTING PRICES ON THE HORSE.

    ALSO SET TO GO IN THE INTERNATIONAL IS "REVOQUE" (CQ)........
    ....3-YEAR-OLD COLT FROM ARGENTINA. THE SOUTH AMERICAN SPEEDSTER HAD HIS FIRST WORKOUT ON THE LAUREL TRACK YESTERDAY.

    ALSO WORKING OUT YESTERDAY WERE THE TWO RUSSIAN HORSES -- "ZARYAD" (CQ) AND "GARNIR" (CQ). THE SOVIET TRAINERS AND JOCKEYS WERE VERY CAREFUL WITH THEIR CHARGES,.....STARTING WITH A LONG WALK ON THE MAIN TRACK, AND GRADUALLY STEPPING UP THE TEMPO TO A GALLOP. THE RUSSIAN PAIR BREEZED THE FINAL THREE FURLONGS IN 39 AND TWO-FIFTHS. OBSERVERS AT THE LAUREL TRACK POINT OUT THAT THE HORSES ARE UNDER SADDLE -- WORKING OUT -- MORE THAN ANY OF THE OTHER HORSES IN THIS RACE. AND ALL OF THE EXERCISE WORKOUTS ARE CONDUCTED BY THE RUSSIAN JOCKEYS, WHO WILL RIDE THE RACE. THE RUSSIANS APPARENTLY WILL NOT SETTLE FOR ANYTHING LESS THAN FIRST AND SECOND.

    AND ONE OTHER INTERESTING POINT. ONE OF THE RUSSIAN COLTS -- "GARNIR" IS ALMOST A DEAD-RINGER FOR THE TOP-FLIGHT AMERICAN HANDICAP HORSE, "TOM FOOL". (CQ) IF HE RUNS ANYTHING LIKE "TOM FOOL", THE SOVIETS MIGHT WELL WIN THIS ONE.

    IT'S GOING TO BE A FINE RACE NEXT TUESDAY AT LAUREL......AND.... "TODAY" WILL BE COVERING.
