There's no denying the dedication of Joseph Talamo III, who as a child got up at 3:30 a.m. to clean stalls and walk horses. Then he sat in front of a television at home, watching races, holding a whip and lashing furniture as if he were in a stretch drive. "Ever since I was 7 or 8, all I put my mind to was being a jockey," he said. On Easter Sunday, while classmates at Archbishop Shaw High in Marrero, La.

Lava Man will have eight opponents when he tries to match Native Diver with a third consecutive victory in the $750,000 Hollywood Gold Cup on Saturday at Hollywood Park. The 6-year-old gelding, who won the race by a record 8 3/4 lengths in 2005 and by the smallest of noses a year ago, will leave from post eight under high-weight of 124 pounds. The impost is the same as he carried in 2006 when he defeated 24-1 longshot Ace Blue in a thriller.

If Lava Man wins a record-equaling third consecutive Hollywood Gold Cup today at Hollywood Park, one person will be conspicuously absent from the winner's circle photo. Trainer Doug O'Neill, who claimed the California-bred gelding for $50,000 for owners Steve, Tracy and Dave Kenly and Jason Wood nearly three years ago, won't be in Inglewood. O'Neill, his wife Linette and mother Dixie are in the midst of a one-week vacation in Ireland, celebrating Dixie's 70th birthday.
