Thornton On my list of top five things in the world (following my two children, of course), I am fairly certain that France, the beach and racing would run 3-4-5. So you can only imagine how ex- citing it is to present Jocelyn Targett's whimsical tale about a winter respite at Cagnes-sur-Mer, a racetrack in France. On the beach. With wine (#6). Dive on in. We also give you a guide to the birthday celebration for Man o' War, who turns 100 this month; introduce you to McCracken, Kansas, popula- tion 190, which is about to become famous for its Kentucky Derby namesake and give 85-year-old Janis Whitham the thrill of a lifetime; show you what's new in Dubai (it's always something!) and let Australian trainer Chris Waller have the last word.

But what's her trainer like? He has this month's Last Word. 06 JANIS WHITHAM AND MCCRA(C)KEN The #1-ranked horse on many people's Derby list is named for a small town in Kansas whose spirits could use the boost that a Triple Crown victory would bring them.
