Affirmed Success - 2002 Carter (G1) [02:31]
Eight-year-old Affirmed Success took a stalker's pose and the inside track against the expected strong pace Saturday afternoon, then took control for good in the lane as he held on for a one-length victory over late-running Voodoo in the 102nd running of the Grade 1, $350000 Carter Handicap for three-year-olds and up -- the undercard feature of Wood Memorial Day at Aqueduct. Owned by Albert Fried Jr., the gelded son of 1978 Triple Crown winner Affirmed broke sharp from the far outside in post 10 under jockey Richard Migliore, then angled to the rail to stalk Rusty Spur, favored Snow Ridge and Here's Zealous through fractions of :21 4/5; :43 2/5 and 1:08 before taking the lead for good and notching the 15th win of his 36-race career in 1:21 4/5. A $2 win ticket on Affirmed Success returned $11.40. "He's never looked better in his life," said winning trainer Richard Schosberg. "He's eight and he's always loved running. We wanted to be inside of Here's Zealous today because that horse got out a little when we ran against him at Laurel (General George, February 18th). Richie (Migliore) rode a great race; he moved at just the right time. This horse is just amazing."

Secretariat - The Meadow Monster [01:24]
Another video of the mighty Secretariat! In the first two racing clips you can clearly see this horse's big, powerful stride eating up the turf. His jockey, Ron Turcotte, once said Secretariat was an even better runner on the grass, after he won the Man o' War Stakes. He also said Secretariat's action was so smooth he didn't always know how fast he was going. The music is from the first movement of Rachmaninoff's Symphony No.1 in D Minor. belmont stakes preakness kentucky super horse derby dirt track turf triple crown ruffian forego sham horses affirmed man war fager
