Laurie Gulas looked a little green around the gills. "I hate hospitals," said the Canadian-born jockey as she walked down a corridor at Pomona Valley Medical Center. "I can visit once, but going back again gets to me." Gulas was visiting Sandi Gann, who had suffered two broken bones in her neck in an accident at Fairplex Park the previous day. Gann was in traction and could hardly swallow, but that didn't stop her from talking about the spill.

Seven 2-year-olds, including three of the first four finishers in last month's Breeders' Cup Juvenile, have been entered in Sunday's $500,000 Hollywood Futurity. Heading the field for the 1 1/16-mile race is undefeated Brocco, who won last month's $1-million Juvenile by five lengths at Santa Anita for his third victory. Other Futurity entrants from the Breeders' Cup race are Blumin Affair, who was second at Santa Anita, and Flying Sensation, who was fourth.

Itsallgreektome won't become the first horse to run in the $500,000 Hollywood Turf Cup three times. The 5-year-old Sovereign Dancer gelding, who won the Grade I race in 1990 and was second to Miss Alleged last year, suffered injuries to his right front leg and right eye in his Hollywood Park stall on Monday and will be out of action indefinitely. "We're awfully disappointed because he was training super for this," trainer Wally Dollase said. "He was feeling so darn good.

The rain stopped in the nick of time for El Atroz. After finishing last on a muddy track at Bay Meadows in December, the 3-year-old gelding had a new trainer and a new jockey Sunday on a drying-out fast track at Santa Anita, and he responded with a half-length victory in the $109,850 California Breeders' Champion Stakes, paying $88.40 as the longest shot on the board.

Kent Desormeaux, who leads the nation's jockeys in purse money, will probably be sidelined for at least a week after being kicked in the head by a horse in a second-race spill Friday at Hollywood Park. Desormeaux was taken to Centinela Hospital Medical Center, where he was kept overnight while being treated for head trauma. The 22-year-year jockey also suffered head cuts and bruises when he was unseated in a bizarre finish to a six-furlong maiden race for $32,000 claiming horses.

Even though Bien Bien had just given owners Trudy McCaffery and John Toffan their fourth stakes victory of the Hollywood Park meeting in the $213,400 Swaps Stakes, they weren't in the mood to celebrate. McCaffery was in tears because John Elardi's Natural Nine, the 8-5 second choice in the Grade II race, had broken down near the eighth pole and had to be destroyed.
