The Lasix question keeps causing controversy, and horse racing seems to simply shrug its collective shoulders and moves on to the next race. Belmont Park is preparing for the 122nd running of the Belmont Stakes June 9, and Summer Squall, the winner of Saturday's Preakness, will not be there because the state of New York does not permit the use of Lasix, a diuretic that controls respiratory bleeding.

The day Summer Squall won the Preakness at Pimlico, the 3-year-old colt was injected with 10 cubic centimeters of Lasix, twice the legal dosage that horses with pulmonary bleeding can receive on race day in California and most other states. Maryland is one of eight states that do not limit the amount of Lasix horses who have suffered from respiratory bleeding can be given.

A year ago, Pat Day was on the fence, aboard Easy Goer and pinned in tight by Sunday Silence and Pat Valenzuela in the Preakness. Easy Goer and Day reached the wire a nose short of their more aggressive opponents, and it was a hollow consolation to be second best in one of the most thrilling races ever. Saturday, in the 115th Preakness, Day had the rail again, but this time he also had the horse.

When Summer Squall runs in the $250,000 Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland today, Michael Morphy will be sitting at home in Pasadena with his telephone off the hook. Morphy is one of 28 investors in Summer Squall, the heavy favorite in the Blue Grass Stakes, one of the last prep races for the Kentucky Derby May 5. If Summer Squall wins against a tough field today, he will vie for favoritism at Churchill Downs with unbeaten Mister Frisky, who won the Santa Anita Derby for his 16th victory.
