A lucky night at a Temecula blackjack table may have set the stage for the beating of Robert L. Gilbert, 56, a veteran trainer at Los Alamitos Racetrack who remained on life support Thursday at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center. Although Cypress police said they had few clues, Gilbert's friends and racetrack officials said the native Texan had enjoyed a good run at blackjack Tuesday night after dropping off a horse, champion mare Significant Speed, at Vessels Stallion Farm in Bonsall.
