A group of investors Friday offered to pay $60 million for the Los Alamitos Race Course under a plan that would improve track operations and expand an existing golf course while developing a low-density office complex on the surrounding land. If the purchase goes through, officials say it could end a 5-year controversy between track owners, Hollywood Park Realty Enterprises and Cypress residents who opposed previous plans for high-density office development on the site. The purchase offer is being made by two prominent men in the quarter-horse racing industry and SDC Developers in Newport Beach.

The extended drought for track owner Edward Allred is over. Despite a stable of more than 400 quarter horses, Allred and trainer Bruce Hawkinson visited the winner's circle in a stakes race for the first time in the meeting last Friday when the most unlikely of candidates, Rapid Champ, won the $20,000 Pat Hyland Handicap.

Stunning anti-abortion forces, a judge on Monday banned all protesters from the parking lot of a Cypress abortion clinic and found that the picketers have unjustly hampered the patients' rights to seek medical services. Orange County Superior Court Judge Linda H. McLaughlin said the protesters--who have targeted the Cypress facility for the last 12 years, most recently by trying to dissuade women in the parking lot from entering the building--could effectively make their point from a nearby public sidewalk.

Edward C. Allred goes to Los Alamitos Race Course almost every night, sitting in a private lounge five floors above the dirt track that first captivated him 37 years ago when he was a penniless college student. Horse player, breeder and co-owner of Los Alamitos, Allred is the racetrack's biggest fan--and its guardian angel. With his personal fortune, Allred has kept alive Orange County's only horse track during racing's long, bumpy ride.

It has been said more than once that the only solution to Hollywood Park's financial woes was divine intervention. Well, heavenly help never came, so management did the next best thing, hiring a missionary. G. Michael Finnigan, who once served a three-year stint with the Mormon Church in the South Pacific, has signed on as executive vice president and chief financial officer of the race track operating company and its sister realty company. His calling? To preach the gospel of fiscal sanity and help turn the debt-ridden track into a moneymaker once again.

Gov. Pete Wilson signed a bill on Thursday that will allow thoroughbreds to race at Los Alamitos. The bill, which had passed the Assembly and Senate in June, restricts Los Alamitos to cheaper thoroughbreds. Races can be no longer than 4 1/2 furlongs and for claiming prices of $5,000 or less. The program is designed to give Los Alamitos more races and lesser thoroughbreds from the major Southland circuit racing opportunities in Southern California.

A judge today banned anti-abortion protesters from the parking lot of a Cypress gynecological and abortion clinic, saying that the boisterous picketers had been hampering the rights of women to seek medical services. Orange County Superior Judge Linda H. McGlaughlin said the protesters could get their message across from a nearby sidewalk just as well. Saying that "nothing could be more personal and private" than a woman's choice to have an abortion, the judge said the protesters had violated the rights of both women patients and of clinic operator Dr. Edward Allred, who runs more than two dozen such centers around the state and has been a frequent target of protesters.
