Trainer Bob Baffert, still without that elusive first Belmont Stakes win, felt that Charismatic's early pressure on Silverbulletday took his filly out of the race Saturday. Chris Antley, riding Charismatic, was never far behind Silverbulletday and jockey Jerry Bailey. "I didn't think he would do that," Baffert said. "I figured somebody was going to be close, but Jerry said he was with her the whole way. They would not let her take a breather. Our only advantage was to go out [front].

A clean and commodious new gallery space launches itself with a debut exhibition for Los Angeles painter Robert Ramirez. He does a perfectly credible job of juggling the established conventions of Neo-Expressionism. Beneath gobs and slashes of raw-hued pigment lurk images of horses, women and--mostly--monumental male nudes. Everybody is suffering some silent agony even though they appear perfectly young and hale.

"Pathfinder" is one of the funniest films of the year. That's not good news for this attempted action-adventure, which clearly lost its way in its own copious fog. The setup is good: One of the Viking expeditions to reach North America hundreds of years before Columbus leaves as its only survivor a 10-year-old boy. The child is raised by Indians, who call him "Ghost," either because of his pale skin or because they know the film will be haunted by cliches from a thousand other movies.

For 18 years the plot twisted and turned as though it had been lifted off the pages of a Dick Francis mystery novel. A wealthy elderly woman was missing, leaving behind a suspicious houseman, a handsome gigolo, a retiring brother, lame racehorses and a web of insurance fraud that stretched across the country. But this whodunit had no ending. As the years went by, one fact became clear: Truth is, indeed, stranger than fiction.

As they often do, things turned heated awhile back in Orange Park Acres when the local church proposed doubling the size of its school, raising the ire of residents concerned about overdevelopment and increased traffic in the bucolic equestrian community. "Stop the Salem School Expansion!" declared signs on street corners. Residents walked petitions throughout the community. Hundreds of neighbors on both sides of the issue packed Orange City Hall for a hearing.

What began in 1894 as a four-day-long "La Fiesta de Los Angeles," a celebration of its many cultures, isn't as venerable as New Orleans' Mardi Gras, but it has played an enduring if off-and-on role in the city's cultural life. And it endures now as Fiesta Broadway, which begins today, the 14th annual prelude to Cinco de Mayo celebrations of Latino culture.

Trainers, agents and even fellow jockeys tell her to go elsewhere. They explain that some of the best jockeys have problems getting mounts at Del Mar, let alone winning races. Steve Cauthen once went through a zero-for-120 streak on the Southern California circuit. Ron Hansen came to Del Mar this year as a highly touted jockey from the Northern California racing circuit, but he left after winning just three of 73 races.

Such an odd place to find big-time hockey, in a converted warehouse beside a sod farm, not too far from Van Nuys Airport. Fans arrive on a muggy Southern California morning, ducking through the lobby and up a few steps to a narrow lounge that overlooks the ice. From there, perched on chairs and bar stools, they can watch the Los Angeles Kings work through skating drills. The Iceoplex is one of the most accessible practice rinks in the National Hockey League.

Lisa Ribar pulls a long plastic glove over her arm, yanks it in place and looks at the cow standing in the chute. She slides her arm inside the cow and, gazing upward, listens as the veterinarian tells her to poke around gently and find a spot that responds to her touch. "Oh! Awesome. I feel it. A baby cow. Awesome." Ribar, 35, an office worker from Rogers, Ark., paid for the experience as a weekend guest at Prairie Women Adventures and Retreat.

A stiff wind blows grit across Jacques-Andre Istel's latest and greatest undertaking, a History of Humanity etched on hundreds of granite panels a few turns of a tumbleweed from the Arizona border. He understands if you don't immediately understand. "You might ask: What qualifications do I have to write a history of humanity?" says Istel, 79, who is French by birth but American in his individualism. "Well, I would ask: What were my qualifications to design parachutes when I was a banker?"
