EACH SUMMER, Columbia Management sponsors concerts in eight of Columbia's nine village centers - a local tradition. Every week, in each village center courtyard, an acoustic guitarist, jazz fusion band or blues duo will serenade listeners. Residents bring folding chairs and buy a meal from nearby restaurants. Lunchtime business crowds and shoppers pass by. Mothers with toddlers in tow stop and linger. Thirteen years ago, the first of the concerts began in Kings Contrivance as a partnership between the village center and Hammond High School to showcase the school's bands.

In major Kentucky Derby preps last weekend in Florida,Louisiana and California, horses such as Lil's Lad, Cape Town, Comic Strip, Artax and Real Quiet flashed strong Derby credentials. But in a $100,000 race on the undercard of the $750,000 Florida Derby, a horse many had dismissed as a Derby contender earned gushing accolades.Favorite Trick, 1997 Horse of the Year as a 2-year-old, made his 1998 debut under new trainer Bill Mott in the Swale Stakes at Gulfstream Park. Favorite Trick won, remaining unbeaten after nine starts.

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - The last time Richard Mandella trained a horse for the Kentucky Derby, he joked about his dismal record in the country's glamour races. "At this point, I'm desperate," the California-based trainer said. "I've been begging people for Triple Crown lessons, but nobody will give them to me." The year was 1999. Mandella's horse was Desert Hero. He finished 13th. Although Mandella is one of Southern California's most respected trainers - sort of the West Coast Bill Mott - he has never won a Triple Crown race.
