It was his 445th career victory at Hollywood Park. Lambert, who resumed his career last year after a lengthy layoff, last won a race at Hollywood Park on July 4, 1986, aboard a 3-year-old filly named Mystical Dragon.

It was the kind of spill that could have killed. There was Jerry Lambert, riding the 1-2 favorite to victory one second, then being trampled by horses the next. The favorite, a mare named Quita Kid, had made the lead on the far turn, but she was bearing out badly. Lambert did what any jockey would have done, he took an extra hold on the inside rein to try to get Quita Kid to straighten out. But then the horse's bit broke.

"Acme After Dark," the newest evening of sketch comedy from the Acme Players, has its share of hilarious moments--but contains a bit too much filler for consistent palatability. A few pieces are more character-driven than comedic, emphasizing the eccentric over the entertaining. The performances are strong--sometimes unequivocally, laugh-out-loud funny.

In "Acme City Limits," the Acme Players once again prove themselves a bright group on the L.A. comedy scene. However, as is frequently the case with sketch comedy, there are some duds in the mix, and a few of the performers are occasionally so broad and splenetic as to be incoherent, a failing that director M.D. Sweeney does not address. Despite these occasional lapses, the show at Acme Comedy Theatre elicits a fair amount of laughter interspersed with plangent social commentary.

Carlos Lacamara's comedy "Crashing Heaven: Can a Good Atheist Find God Without Breaking His Father's Heart?" has some funny moments, but it fumbles and meanders as the leading character, Tony, played by the author, searches for spirituality. Burris Jackes painted the stage walls at the Court Theatre as pastel blue skies heavily dotted with fluffy white clouds. These frame the dark black box upstage, where a small group mourns the passing of Tony's father, James.

Rodania Arbi, no worse than second in four starts at Los Alamitos, is the filly to beat in tonight's $20,000 California Oaks. Owned by Richard Kiekow and trained by Russ Ragain, the Georgia-bred daughter of Esmet Arbi will be ridden by Joy Scott as she tries for her fifth victory in nine outings. Second as the 8-5 favorite in her 2003 debut on Jan. 24, Rodania Arbi will have only four opponents in the Oaks, which is run at 7 1/2 furlongs.

Be Real Now, a troubled fourth in the Las Damas Handicap on July 30, is the 3-1 favorite for the $20,000 Bobby Doyle Memorial Handicap tonight at Los Alamitos. Named for the longtime track announcer at Los Alamitos, the Doyle will be run at 400 yards and, besides Be Real Now, eight other 3-year-old fillies were entered. Owned by Terry Smith and trained by Brian Koriner, Be Real Now was bumped and jostled from both sides at the start of the Las Damas and finished fourth, beaten by 1 3/4 lengths.

It was an overwhelming performance by a horse accustomed to providing such performances. When Native Diver won his third consecutive Hollywood Gold Cup 32 years ago today, he did it with gusto. For one thing, he beat heavily favored Pretense by five lengths. And Native Diver's time for the mile and a quarter, 1:58 4/5, was only a tick behind Swaps' track record and three-fifths off Noor's world record. Also, the $102,100 winner's money boosted Native Diver's career earnings to $1,002,850.

Founded in 1990, the Acme Comedy Theatre has had its fair share of funny shows in the seven years since its inception. However, the Acme Players really hit their stride in "Absolute Acme," an evening of inspired nonsense that impressively showcases this up-and-coming company. Some of these performers have been with the group since its beginning. Others have worked their way up through the ranks of Acme's second-string Bravo Company.
