With the issues concerning Santa Anita's synthetic track finally resolved -- at least for the time being -- the focus heading into Presidents Day weekend is on the racing. On tap today is the Grade II, $150,000 San Carlos Handicap, with 7-year-old gelding Greg's Gold heading a field of seven. Greg's Gold will be the sentimental favorite, although Surf Cat is the morning line choice. And by race time, the odds may favor Johnny Eves.

In two of the last three years, victory in the San Carlos Handicap has signaled success in the Santa Anita Handicap. Farma Way began a four-race Santa Anita winning streak in 1991 with a victory in the seven-furlong San Carlos and culminated the run in the $1-million Big 'Cap. Last year, Sir Beaufort completed the same parlay. Trainer David Bernstein would love to continue that trend with The Wicked North.

Their scrappy, grass-roots campaign had persuaded the council to buy and preserve a winding neighborhood canyon as open space. The council voted unanimously to acquire the 180-acre Rancho Mission Canyon. The residents walked away happy. The deal was done. Or so it seemed. Under the quiet scrutiny of municipal employees, the deal may be coming undone.

On one side stands San Carlos Borromeo de Monterey, believed to be the oldest continuously functioning church in California, completed in 1794. On the other, a small stand of stately redwood trees, whose roots have made their way through the chapel's foundation and threaten its survival.
