At a former Civil War-era schoolhouse in middle-of-nowhere Kent County, a glitzy international trade show was taking shape. An icy rain fell on the darkened fields of little Locust Grove as Joe Karlik sat designing a set in 3D for a springtime event that his client, MTV, plans for that sunny coastal paradise, the French Riviera.

Kelly Ann Richmond wanted something big. She didn't want to throw a local fashion show or a concert or a dance or a disc-jockey-and-video-projection performance. She wanted them all at once. After a few months of organizing, Richmond and the rest of Tribe Productions wound up with Saffire, what they call a "multimedia fashion-art-music extravaganza."

South African import Ipi Tombe, who became an international star early this year with three dominating victories in Dubai, has been retired from racing after a training setback that would have knocked her out of a return trip to Dubai.

Plans call for the Zimbabwe-bred 5-year-old mare to be sold in foal in the Keeneland November Sale in 2004.
