2012 Breeders' Cup contender - Coil on to Sprint after staying perfect at six furlongs [01:23]
Already a Grade I winner over a route of ground last year as a 3-year-old, Coil earned an automatic berth into next month's $1.5 million Breeders' Cup Sprint (Grade I) by rallying late under Martin Garcia to win the $250000 Santa Anita Sprint Championship (Grade I) by a head over stable mate Capital Account. Since moving to Bob Baffert's barn, Coil has won 6-of-10 starts and eclipsed $1 million in career earnings by wining for the third time at the traditional six furlong sprint distance for owners Pegram or Watson or Weitman. The 7-to-1 price on Coil was by far the most generous of his career, which was previously the 9-to-2 his backers received when the Point Given colt made his first start for Baffert while breaking his maiden by over three lengths at Hollywood Park in November of 2010. Looking to move one step closer to defending his Breeders' Cup and Eclipse Award Sprint Championships from a year ago, Amazombie faded to fourth as the 4-to-5 favorite after sitting the perfect trip behind dueling leaders and getting first jump on the closers. The only 3-year-old in the group, Jimmy Creed came up the rail late to secure the show.

2008 Hambletonian - Meadowlands Racetrack [02:22]
East Rutherford, NJ --- "If I die now, I got it." That was the happy -- and perhaps relieved -- reaction of part owner, trainer and driver Ray Schnittker, who drove the heavily favored Deweycheatumnhowe to victory, in 1:52, in "it" -- the $1.5 million Hambletonian Final on Saturday at the Meadowlands. USTA/Mark Hall photo Deweycheatumnhowe held off Crazed by a half-length to win the $1.5 million Hambletonian Final on Saturday at the Meadowlands. Schnittker had drawn himself the rail position at this past Tuesday's press conference, and used the innermost starting slot to its best advantage by immediately sprinting to the top. The race, as it unfolded, was nearly void of great drama thereafter: The undefeated trotter raced on top through fractions of :26.4, :55 and 1:23.2 with Crazed, the second choice of the crowd, right behind. The sole challenge came from a longshot, Velocity Hall (David Miller), who raced in the first-over position on the backstretch, but who was easily held at bay by the winner. At the top of the stretch, driver Tim Tetrick came out from behind "Dewey's" cover with Crazed, and made one move towards an upset -- but fell a half-length short of victory. Make It Happen (Daniel Dube) closed in the stretch and finished third, 3-1/4 lengths behind, and Celebrity Secret (Brian Sears) finished fourth. In speaking with NBC Sports commentator Donna Barton Brothers, just a few moments after the win, Schnittker said, "I don't think the front end was that great ...

1999 Haskell Invitational Grade I [04:49]
It was a three-wide move on the last turn, made with parabolic precision, that not only dusted Cat Thief and Forestry, but perhaps also kicked dirt on any sentiments that Charismatic had won the crown as the best 3-year-old in the nation. The horse responsible was Menifee. His hardly surprised rider was Pat Day, in the $1 million Grade I Haskell Invitational today at Monmouth Park. What does it mean? That three at-the-wire finishes can be deceptive. That anyone who penciled in Charismatic, the courageous Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner, as the best of his generation needs an eraser. That Menifee's trainer, Elliott Walden, concluded a day that those with professional horse fantasies dream about. Less than an hour before Menifee ran down a pair of West Coast speedsters here, Walden's Ecton Park romped in the mud and ran away from a Grade II Jim Dandy field at Saratoga Springs. ''I knew he had won at the eighth pole,'' Walden said of Menifee's fifth career victory, his third this year, to move the colt's earnings past $1.5 million. The 33056 people who braved gloomy skies and early-morning showers may not have been so sure. The Derby and Preakness runner-up, Menifee still trailed a game Cat Thief, who was neck to neck with a determined Forestry in the stretch. ''I felt very good all the way, to be honest with you,'' said Day, who won his first Haskell and ran Menifee's record over the second-place Cat Thief to 5-0. ''I think if we run three more times, Menifee would beat ...
