We consider non-negative solutions to a class of second-order degenerate Kolmogorov operators of the form L=Sigma(m)(i,j=1)a(i,j)(z)partial derivative(xixj)+Sigma(m)(i=1)a(i)(z)partial derivative(xi)+Sigma(N)(i,j=1)b(i,j)x(i)partial derivative(xj)-partial derivative(t), where z = (x, t) belongs to an open set Omega subset of R-N x R, and 1 <= m <= N. Let (z) over bar is an element of Omega, let K be a compact subset of (Omega) over bar, and let Sigma subset of partial derivative Omega be such that K boolean AND partial derivative Omega subset of Sigma. give sufficient geometric conditions for the validity of the following Carleson type estimate. There exists a positive constant C-K, depending only on Omega, Sigma, K, (z) over tilde and on L, such that sup(K) u <= C(K)u((z) over tilde), for every non-negative solution u of Lu = 0 in Omega such that u|(Sigma) = 0.
