At a Simi Valley ranch where he is boarding 67 horses, Normand Latourelle admires how closely the skies resemble the 3-D projections for the new "Cavalia" show he's bringing to Burbank. "We have that!" he says pointing to the powder-blue swirls. As if on cue, a herd of scrubbed gray stallions in a nearby paddock shake their streaming manes and set off on a sweeping group canter. "Cavalia" creator Latourelle conceived "Odysseo," the follow-up to his touring equine performance show, as a man-and-horse fantasy.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Michael Matz has had his share of life-altering moments. He was a three-time Olympian and carried the flag in the closing ceremony in Atlanta. He saved the lives of four young children after a plane crash in Iowa. And he was the trainer who watched over the life and death of Barbaro, perhaps the most beloved thoroughbred of this century. Saturday he'll send Union Rags from the No. 4 post as the second favorite in the 138th Kentucky Derby. Bob Baffert's Bodemesiter is the top choice at 4-1 odds; Union Rags is 9-2. Union Rags was thought to be the clear Derby favorite before an unfortunate ride led to a third-place finish in the Florida Derby.

An outbreak of a deadly virus has horse trainers and owners in Riverside and Orange counties fearful for the health of their animals. On Tuesday, a horse at the Empire Polo Club in Indio was euthanized because of complications from equine herpes virus-1. At Rancho Sierra Vista in San Juan Capistrano, 16 cases of the disease have been identified since Jan. 11 and one horse had to be euthanized. Both sites have been placed under quarantine by state veterinarians. No horses are allowed to leave or enter, and caretakers must take sanitary precautions.

Lucrative purses, large fields, good crowds, new standouts — it made for a memorable 37-day race meeting that ended Wednesday at Del Mar. From the emergence of Acclamation as a horse-of-the-year candidate to the unveiling of promising 2-year-olds, Del Mar produced quality races and quality entertainment. It started with a record crowd of 46,588 on opening day, and the fans kept coming, averaging 17,844 in daily on-track attendance. The highest overnight purses of any meeting this summer, plus incentives for owners to ship in horses from out of state, created rare full fields in Southern California racing, something that Hollywood Park and Santa Anita have struggled to accomplish.

This is the Year of the Horse, according to the Chinese calendar, a designation that will be underlined this week when Gilles Ste-Croix's "Cheval" gallops into Costa Mesa. A new touring production, "Cheval," which means "horse" in French, mixes four-footed and two-footed performers with elaborate sets, costumes, lights and a bit of a story line into a form of in-the-round entertainment that's unusual, at least in North America.

Half a dozen Fillmore girls are among the 100 young riders who will compete in the annual 4-H horse show next Friday at the Ventura County Fairgrounds. Recently, they gathered at a Fillmore equestrian center to practice the skills they hope will earn them blue ribbons. Dust rose in puffs as one young rider after another loped her horse in easy circles around the arena. The competition opens with the showmanship category, a non-riding event in which handlers display the horses.
