Holy moly, holy Toledo, holy cow. Holy Smoke, the new film from Jane Campion, inspires awe - for Kate Winslet's remarkable performance - and oaths - for a lopsided scenario by the director and her sister, Anna. The film contains multitudes. It has something for everyone. Not to mention something for everyone to cringe at. And we don't mean the Neil Diamond soundtrack that includes "Holy Holy" and "I Am . . . I Said," which are strangely effective in this context of spiritual awakening.

There are so few family-friendly movies and even fewer with girls at the center that I feel awful slamming a movie that is both. Neigh? Nay. Flicka is a bronc you shouldn't put money on. Gumby's sidekick Pokey has more personality than the free-spirited mustang in this spavined update of Mary O'Hara's beloved tale of the rebellious youngster who identifies with a wild horse. In this version of the book, the basis of a popular 1943 film and '50s TV series, director Michael Mayer changes the gender and age of the central human.

The Breeders' Cup results did little to clear up the confusing Horse of the Year picture. Ferdinand put in his bid. Alysheba and Groovy blew their hopes. Theatrical got some votes when he came again to beat Arc De Triomphe winner Trempolino in the Turf. It was Theatrical's seventh win from nine starts in a campaign that started in January. Theatrical, who barely lost to Manila in last year's Turf, tied the course record, running the 1 1/2 miles in 2:24 2/5. The race showcased Pat Day at his theatrical best.

A hallmark of Girl Lit - by which we mean great books for young ladies - is the sequence in the narrative involving Our Heroine's Hair. In Little Women, Jo chops off her mane to earn the family some much-needed money for Marmee's journey to Washington. In Anne of Green Gables, when Anne dyes her carrot- colored curls ebony, they instead turn green; thus she has to clip them off. Symbolically, the Hair Scene marks the transition between the heroine's pigtailed girlhood and her tomboyish independence.

As Easy Goer came charging into Aqueduct's paddock late Saturday afternoon, the chilling mid-April wind blowing off Jamaica Bay froze the scene. The Kentucky Derby favorite, minutes before his final tuneup in the Wood Memorial, was breathing fire. He charged down the little slope to the saddling area. Then, Easy Goer was led into his stall, where he calmed down instantly, seemingly aware that he soon would get his chance to expend some of that pent- up energy. One minute, Easy Goer has the look of a wild horse.

It was time for the Frank Rizzo show, and The Pen & Pencil Club, local media watering hole, was packed for the occasion. Usually a dozen or so regulars come out for these up-close and off-the- record sessions with newsmakers, but on Wednesday night, there was standing room only. When Big Frank entered the narrow little building, striding through the cramped bar, a hush fell over the throng of reporters, who dutifully trooped upstairs to a tiny meeting room. The question and answer session is off the record, so I can't tell you what Rizzo said (Here's a hint though: what he said off the record was no different, although stated more candidly, than what he's been saying on the record throughout this excruciating excuse for a mayoral campaign)

For many people, the wild horse is emblematic of the American West, an icon of history, freedom and spirit. But for those who raise cattle on the same lands that the horses thunder through, the animals are a nettlesome nuisance. Horse lovers want the animals protected. Many ranchers would just as soon see them dead. In a move that has appalled horse advocates and elated cattlemen, a Western senator quietly slipped into a 3,000-page spending bill a measure that could allow many wild horses to be sent to slaughter.

The crowd consisted of members from two decidedly different groups: boot-wearing cowboy types serious about bidding on the frisky mares and colts and hauling them off to their pastoral spreads, and sneaker-wearing parents who brought their little offspring with dreams of Mr. Ed in the backyard. In trailers, trucks and minivans, hundreds arrived all weekend at Sunrise Ranch, deep in an area of South Jersey proudly known as "cow country," for a genuine roundup of wild horses and donkeys.

Wild horses and burros - descendants of those that roamed in the cowboy era - will be offered for adoption here this weekend. The federal Bureau of Land Management bills the event, similar to others that have been held throughout the United States in the last 30 years, as a chance at "Adopting a Living Legend. " In competitive bidding starting at $125 per animal, the bureau will offer 100 mustangs and 30 burros, which are donkeylike pack animals. The auction will be held at the Sunrise Ranch at 524 Haines Neck Rd. The animals were among about 46,000 that roam remote ranges in 10 Western states, foraging for what the bureau says is dwindling water and food.

After decades of intense effort by wildlife biologists and zookeepers from more than 25 countries, the world's oldest and only truly wild horses are once again grazing freely on the steppes of central Asia. The small, stocky Przewalski's horse (Equus przewalskii), believed to be the distant ancestor of all domestic horses, was once so close to extinction it was virtually written off by zoologists as a viable species. Today, with three wild herds in Mongolia and a captive population of about 1,200 animals worldwide, its future is more promising than at any time in the last 50 years.
