Once she made up her mind, Judy McCarron hired a private investigator. A good one in Massachusetts was recommended to her. It was time for Judy to find out the truth. Within 24 hours, the private eye had some solid leads. It wasn't long before Judy was at home in California with the information in hand, the woman's name and a New England phone number. There was only one thing left to do. Call the number. "Is this Ethel?" Judy asked. "Yes?" the woman replied, not recognizing the voice.

What would you say is the most one-sided competition in the world of sports? Tyson vs. Spinks? Notre Dame vs. Southern Methodist? The Ruth Yankees vs. the Cubs? Anybody vs. the Dallas Cowboys? The Christians vs. the lions? A guy with a burned clutch vs. Indy? Multiply it by two. And you have some idea of the odds a 100-pound jockey is bucking trying to handle a 1,200-pound horse. Everyone talks about the dangers of auto racing. And they are real. The pull in the weights is the same.

Judy McCarron and daughters Erin, Stephanie and Kristin showed up in the nick of time at Hollywood Park on Sunday. Within two victories of 6,000 when the afternoon began, Chris McCarron had no luck with his first two mounts, finishing last on favored Magic Alpha in the third race and a distant third on Just Tops in the fifth. Before the seventh, McCarron's family arrived and gave him a lucky charm--one of three Chinese coins horse owner Raymond Rosen had given the jockey some time ago.

Just mention Thanksgiving Eve, and Frank Vallelunga squeezes his eyes shut and ducks for cover. "This is the worst day of the year for me," he said apologetically. "I get the brunt of it when people don't get what they want." In a city where being a member of the culinary avant-garde can be as telling as driving the right car, the scene was replayed again and again on Wednesday at the area's gourmet markets.

Riding for the last time outside California, 47-year-old jockey Chris McCarron won two races Friday night at Lone Star Park to clinch first place in the National Thoroughbred Racing Assn.'s All-Star Jockey Championship. After McCarron won the last of four races in the competition, he and his 11 rivals squirted one another with water bottles in the winner's circle. McCarron, thinking the horseplay was over, turned his back and then someone emptied a bucket of water on him.

Dodger fans have something more to be thankful about today. . . Eric Davis will fill the team's biggest need--a right-handed power hitter--and the price is reasonable. . . The grass surface at Dodger Stadium and his friendship with Darryl Strawberry should make Davis more productive in Los Angeles than he was in Cincinnati. . . However, I am not thrilled with the idea of making Kal Daniels a first baseman instead of making him a former Dodger. . .

It's not a question of IF you'll ever go down, it's just a question of when. --Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens They ran the third race at Fairplex Park in Pomona on Friday with about 50 of J.C. Gonzalez's fellow jockeys, family and friends standing near the winner's circle. They were waiting, shortly after the horses crossed the finish line, to pay silent tribute to the 23-year-old jockey who was killed in a spill at the Los Angeles County Fair on Thursday.

The day before Sunday's Beverly Hills Handicap at Hollywood Park, Judy McCarron, the jockey's wife, was looking at the Daily Racing Form and discussing the $319,000 race with her husband. "Who's going to the front?" she asked. "I might be," Chris McCarron said. As the five fillies and mares loaded into the gate for the 1 1/8-mile turf race, McCarron had the feeling that his mount, Flawlessly, might start second behind Alcando, who led the stake wire to wire last year.
