Parks, Rose selling out We're going to need a blue light for this here pair of sales . . . Second Hand Rose, the shop specializing in vintage clothes, costumes and accessories, has a pre-Halloween sale with markdowns up to 75 on 15 years' worth of accumulated outfits, including the good, bad, ugly, whimsical, daring and bizarre. Not to mention costumes, wigs and makeup gathered when a couple of costume shops closed. The sale includes the classy clothing Rose has always sold, but a lot of it is stuff just itching to be turned into a Halloween costume. Best shopping is at the Brentwood store (8286 Winton Road), where all 10 rooms are filled, but there are also bargains at Mount Lookout (1030 Delta Ave.). The sale runs all month but the best often goes early. On a green note, Cincinnati Parks sell a ton of plants and bulbs at slashed prices. Tulip bulbs dug from parks have been cleaned, sorted and told to bloom; they're 10 for $1.25; new bulbs tulips, daffodils, crocus also go at cut prices. There's more: The tropical plants which have been lining downtown streets all summer also go on sale. Among them: 7-foot ficus trees, 3-foot crotons, 4-foot date palms, 2-foot tri-color dracenas. They're priced at $10-$30, a fraction of what the nursery prices, and most (except for the large ficus) probably will sell for less than that. Bulb sale is 10 a.m. Saturday at Krohn Conservatory and Mount Airy Arboretum; tropical plant sale is the same time at Krohn only; the sale continues until everything's sold. And don't be late; these things sell fast because park flowers are always healthy and well tended. They wouldn't dare die. Not even on you. 1 -v - ft ?1 t "'if'tU ..... :";" : : ' ' 1 vioiiuto iu iciai iu uail vvairx uwmi uic uauuwr aica iu jco u ic uvioca caciioc. auuvc. uciuic uuuici uubnt wauco uie iu uic uugi, V7T Sights and sounds seduce Appi e-pie mania visitors to fabled course Sharon Woods Village, which takes a step back in time this weekend with its annual Harvest Festival, is crammed with pioneer activity, entertainment, games and tours.

Expect unusual Expect the unusual at Keeneland from its silent races to its gold julep cups (awarded to owners of winning horses in stakes races) to its very short racing season and its emphasis on tradition. Keeneland opens Saturday for its brief fall season, closing Oct. 26 until reopening in April for another three-week stint. While most tracks open for 50 to 100 days at a stretch, Keeneland fans can't dawdle; you catch the action quickly at Keeneland, or not at all. . Another concession: Keeneland has upped its regular weekly schedule from five days to six. The track is now open Tuesday through Sunday and closed on Monday. Also new this year is the Equifestival, Lexington's celebration of the horse, which began Oct. 2 and continues through Oct. 13. The festival includes tours of several horse farms and (Please see KEENELAND, Page C-14) BY CHRISTINE WOLFF The Cincinnati Enquirer .Thoroughbred racing at Keeneland draws the eye rather than bombarding the ear. There's noise, yes; but it's a natural, earth-bound collection of racing sounds horses' hoofs thudding on dirt, the muddle of crowd voices, a bugler rallying horse and rider. Missing from the Lexington, Ky., track is a rasping public address system blaring from overhead speakers, detailing every move in a harsh monotone (". . . and it's Son of Cindy moving up on the inside, followed by Clumsy Dancer and Shoot Me Quick neck and neck at the curve . . .") At Keeneland and, maybe, only at Keeneland you watch the track action or miss it. That's how it's been since the track opened in October, 1936, and that's how it's staying. (A recent concession to modern times: closed-circuit television monitors, for spectators stuck in the back.) "There's no play-by-play. We feel the race is to be seen, not heard," says Jim Williams, Keeneland's director of publicity.

It's a condition that causes Lip-nick's mood to swing from absurdly accommodating to chillingly ruthless. "I didn't want the guy to be a cartoon or a stereotype, so I made a decision not to smoke a cigar, not to be bluff," says Lerner. "But I wanted to make him real specific. Fast trip The world comes to Middletown this week. Sort of. The occasion is Middfest, an annual street party which promotes world understanding by spotlighting issues, food, arts, crafts, customs and entertainment of one country per year. But this year is the 10th fest and it's a little different. Instead of one country, it's all the countries from the first 10 Middfests: Luxembourg, Mexico, Egypt, Brazil, Japan, Switzerland, Canada, Italy, India and Ireland, making it like a trip around the world in one day. The event it attracts 120,000 visitors is 4-9 p.m. today, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Saturday and noon-6 p.m. Sunday at the City Centre Plaza.
