The Racing Times, an ambitious newspaper that the late Robert Maxwell launched about 10 months ago to compete with publishing archrival Rupert Murdoch's Daily Racing Form, went out of business Thursday. Somewhat of an artistic success, and much more aggressive editorially than the conservative Racing Form, the Racing Times lacked the time to make the market inroads necessary to turn a profit.

As a once-upon-a-time journalism student and a lifelong reader of both The Times and Herald Examine, I am among the many thousands who were sad to see the Herald go. But I am also among many more who I'm sure are as tickled as I am that The Times hired Allan Malamud and Bob Mieszerski. For my dough, Mieszerski is right up there with Andrew Beyer of the Washington Post and Steven Crist of the New York Times. Just wanted to say thanks. LEE HUTSON, Malibu

Racing Times Folds: Racing Times, launched 10 months ago by Robert Maxwell to "smash the monopoly" of the Daily Racing Form, is shutting down and selling part of its assets to its rival. The demise of the daily horse-racing newspaper was caused by financial losses and the shake-up of Maxwell's publishing empire after his death last November. An unsuccessful effort was made to sell the paper, according to its owner, Mirror Group.

His rival jockeys wished him well. The public bet him down to 3-5. The track announcer rooted him home. But nobody let Bill Shoemaker win the fifth race Saturday and that says something about the class and integrity of the sport at Santa Anita . . . Instead, Eddie Delahoussaye and Exemplary Leader and Fernando Toro and Happy Toss came flying on the inside, Oraibi and Corey Black came roaring on the outside, and Shoemaker and Patchy Groundfog finished out of the money. . . .

The voting for this year's Eclipse Awards had appeared to be devoid of suspense and potential controversy. Sunday Silence was a standout for the horse-of-the-year title, and just about every other category seemed equally clear-cut. Yet, when the names of the 1989 thoroughbred champions were announced Monday, the results provoked intense criticism on both coasts.
