"In Pursuit of Greatness." Los Angeles Turf Club. $29.95. With another winter season of thoroughbred racing in Arcadia just around the corner, the track has come up with a visual history of its centerpiece--the Santa Anita Handicap. From black-and-white footage of the upset win by Azucar during the inaugural running in 1935 through a color replay of this year's nose upset by Broad Brush, the 57 minutes are crammed with enough reruns, calls and interviews to satisfy any turf fan. Seabiscuit, John Henry, Bill Shoemaker, Charlie Whittingham--all are on display in this 50-race retelling, produced by Joe Burnham. Available by mail from Santa Anita. Information: (818) 574-6392. *** 1/2
