1994 Lady's Secret Handicap - Hollywood Wildcat [02:27]
Even though the Breeders' Cup Distaff will be the toughest race of the day to win, trainer Neil Drysdale acts as though he can't wait to get to Churchill Downs with Hollywood Wildcat, the filly who won the stake a year ago. Running out front, an unusual spot for the 4-year-old, Hollywood Wildcat beat Exchange by 2 1/4 lengths Monday in the $106400 Lady's Secret Handicap at Santa Anita, and Drysdale plans to have her on a plane Wednesday for Kentucky, where the 11th Breeders' Cup will be run Nov. 5. "Churchill Downs is a track that you should train (a horse) over before a race," Drysdale said. "That's according to Charlie (Whittingham). And Charlie does well there." Before launching his own career 20 years ago, Drysdale worked as an assistant for Whittingham, who won the Kentucky Derby with Ferdinand and Sunday Silence in the 1980s. The $1-million Distaff is expected to include Sky Beauty, Heavenly Prize and Lakeway, and Phone Chatter is also a possibility, depending on how she performs Sunday in the Spinster at Keeneland. Hollywood Wildcat didn't get back to the races this year until mid-June. After finishing third in the La Canada at Santa Anita, Drysdale put her on grass, where she won the Gamely Handicap and finished second in the Beverly Hills Handicap, both at Hollywood Park. She then ran second again, behind Flawlessly, the champion turf mare, in the Ramona Handicap at Del Mar. Hollywood Wildcat was back on dirt Monday, winning the same race that served as her ...

1989 Belmont Stakes: Full ABC Broadcast [01:05:24]
Easy Goer finally lived up to his spectacular promise of early spring yesterday when he roared past Sunday Silence on the turn for home and won the 121st Belmont Stakes by eight lengths. In doing so, he prevented Sunday Silence from becoming racing's 12th Triple Crown winner. Earlier this year, Easy Goer looked like the next Secretariat, a colt of limitless potential who might set new standards of excellence. Then, after second-place finishes in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, Easy Goer seemed likelier to emulate his father, Alydar, who in 1978 became the only horse to finish second in all three Triple Crown races, losing each leg of the Triple Crown to Affirmed. But yesterday, there was talk of Secretariat again. Easy Goer's winning Belmont time of 2:26.01 under Pat Day over a fast but not unusually quick track was the second-fastest Belmont ever, behind only Secretariat's 1973 world-record clocking of 2:24. Easy Goer's performance ranks as one of the most impressive in the history of the sport. $1 Million Bonus Sunday Silence actually earned more in defeat than the winner's purse of $413520, getting a $1 million Triple Crown bonus for the best overall record in the three races. But he would have earned $2.5 million more, and a certain place in the sport's Hall of Fame, with a victory. Instead, he might be considered only the second-best 3-year-old of this year unless he can beat Easy Goer again. Easy Goer, a chestnut-colored son of Alydar and Relaxing, bred and ...
