A 10 Is the One

A SPOKESMAN for Arnold Schwarzenegger said last week that the Governator likes people with "different backgrounds" in his government, a policy made evident by his appointment of Bo Derek, an actress who posed for Playboy, to the California Horse Racing Board. The CHRB, which has historically consisted mostly of racehorse owners, has been criticized for ignoring the welfare of the animals, and Derek, 51, is passionate about horses. She's lobbied Congress to stop their slaughter, and she even titled her autobiography Riding Lessons: Everything That Matters in Life I Learned from Horses. At her first board meeting last week, Derek and the six other members sent a signal that they mean business by voting to ban anabolic steroids, which will take effect before the Breeders' Cup, to be held in October at Santa Anita.
