1978 Travers Stakes - Affirmed -vs- Alydar [05:41]
With the infield open to the public, a record crowd of 50122 jammed its way into the Spa, shattering the previous record by more than 15000. There was no way anyone in attendance or the millions watching on TV could foresee the bizarre events that would ensue. What began as a glorious celebration of the sport would end in bitterness and controversy. For the first three-quarters of a mile, everything was going as predicted. Affirmed, favored at 3-5, was sitting comfortably in second and about to dispose of the pace-setting Shake Shake Shake, who had been setting leisurely fractions of :24 and :48. Alydar, sent off at even-money, was in third, two lengths behind Affirmed. Everyone was waiting anxiously for something to happen. When would Affirmed blow past Shake Shake Shake? How and when was Velasquez going to attack Affirmed, and how was he going to try to avoid looking into the eye of the tiger this time? The answer soon became obvious. Cordero took Shake Shake Shake off the rail and began drifting out into Affirmed, opening a huge hole for Alydar, who had been running just inside of Nasty of Bold. Velasquez, as if expecting that hole to open, wasted no time and shot Alydar right through along the vacated rail. Affirmed by now had taken over the lead from the tiring Shake Shake Shake, only to have Alydar come charging through on his inside going into the far turn. The crowd let out a resounding cheer and braced for the battle they had been waiting for. Pincay, sensing the ...

Travers Stakes - Great Runnings Of The Mid-Summer Derby [42:48]
Great runnings of the Travers Stakes up to and including 1989, narrated by NYRA's John Imbriale.. The Travers Stakes is an American Grade I Thoroughbred horse race held at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, New York. First held in 1864, it was named for William R. Travers, the president of the old Saratoga Racing Association. His horse, Kentucky, won the first running of the Travers. The race was not run in 1896, 1898, 1899, 1900, 1911, and 1912. en.wikipedia.org

"Wow! What A Filly!" - Mossflower - 1998 Hempstead Handicap [04:01]
Her name is Mossflower, she is a 4-year-old daughter of the Triple Crown champion Affirmed, and she streaked across the horizon at Belmont Park yesterday like a shooting star. Mossflower stayed undefeated by winning her sixth straight race in the sort of performance that grows with time. She outran five of the finest fillies in the land by 12 lengths and more, closed with a furious rush to break the record for the Hempstead Handicap and came within two-fifths of a second of matching the track record for a mile and one-sixteenth. And she did it all in the first stakes race she ever ran. The true measure of her success might be judged by the caliber of the fillies she outran, in this order: Glitter Woman, who has finished in the money in 15 of her 16 starts; Colonial Minstrel, who had a five-race winning streak; Ajina, last year's 3-year-old champion filly; Dixie Flag, a speed horse who had won three of her last four, and Royal Indy, winner of the Gazelle last summer at Belmont. After half a mile, Mossflower was running dead last in this all-star field, and she was still fourth after three-quarters of a mile. Then they turned into the homestretch, and Robbie Davis called for closing speed. In a flash, Mossflower blew past Dixie Flag and Glitter Woman, shot from fourth place to first, widened her lead to two lengths in the stretch and widened it to major daylight as they neared the wire. She closed her breathtaking performance 12 lengths in front of Glitter Woman, who nosed ...

Secretariat Belmont Stakes 1973 & extended coverage (HD Version - NEW!) [05:13]
This is Secretariat's historic 1973 Belmont Stakes victory. I uploaded the original video which is over 1 million hits 5 years ago. I can now rip at a much higher quality and I wanted to put the upgrade on Youtube for everyone to enjoy. :) Unfortunately the footage is from 1973 so it will never be the HD we now have come to enjoy, but this should look good on 27" screens or higher compared to the old one. What makes this video different from all other Belmont 1973 footage on youtube? Well, the elongated coverage of the race. It is fun to see the actual initial response to this race by the commentators, the crowd etc.
