Ralph Seville can sit on a worn sofa in the drab jockey room at Los Alamitos Race Course and talk about his weight problem in front of peers with a sense of control. The dark side of the business, where some manage weight by binge eating, drug use or five-hour saunas isn't pretty. Most don't discuss it. Four years ago, popping prescription diet aids as if they were candy, Seville had a spiritual awakening, quit riding and moved to Idaho to sort things out.

Each racing night, aboard cheap claimers and stakes horses, Ralph Seville is living a lifelong dream. The 26-year-old Buena Park native is the fifth-leading rider at Los Alamitos, the first time he has enjoyed a prominent position among one of quarter horse racing's toughest jockey colonies. Through Sunday, Seville has won 59 races at the current meeting, and he is 14th nationally in races won this year. Last year, he was 34th in races won nationally and failed to crack the local top 10.
