Sweetnorthernsaint changes careers

In a field beside a gravel lane that leads to a 200-year-old farm house, two horses kick up their heels at play.

One of those horses has a broad, bold white blaze down the front of his face and a white "sock" on each of his two left ankles. Sweetnorthernsaint, the Grade II Illinois Derby winner who went off as the betting favorite in the 2006 Kentucky Derby and finished second in the Preakness, is easily recognizable if you know who you're looking for.

At age 7, the bay gelding, owned by Baltimore-area residents Ted Theos and Joe Balsamo and trained at Laurel Park by Maryland native Mike Trombetta during a memorable 3-year-old season, has been retired here, to Black Fox Farm in the rolling hills of Carroll County near Libertytown.
