When Gayle Gardner substituted for Marv Albert on NBC's pregame baseball show recently, she went to Riker's Island prison to do an interview with former New York Yankee Joe Pepitone.

Ozone Park? Is that any kind of name for the host city of the Breeders' Cup, the world's most fabulous and glamorous day of horse racing? Ozone Park? If too many people use aerosol spray cans, will this place disappear? Ozone Park is off-Broadway. Way off.

Hundreds of fans grumbled recently when a favorite at Santa Anita was declared a non-starter after his door in the starting gate had failed to open properly. Somebody pointed out, though: "If this had happened in New York, they would have done more than grumble--they would have dismantled the grandstand."

Riverside (4-6) won for the fourth time in five games and easily topped prior season bests with its point total and shooting percentage. The Highlanders made 61.9% of their shots and hit 10 of 17 three-point tries.
