New York Watch: Alpha [01:45]
When Kiaran McLaughlin entered Alpha in Saturday's seventh race, the trainer thought he had picked a difficult spot for the colt to make his debut. Not only was the race seven furlongs, it also featured well-regarded horses who had the benefit of a previous start. "[Alpha] drew down toward the inside, the 3 hole he had, and I was afraid of two who had already started [Invocation and Africanist] because seven-eighths is a hard distance first-time out," said McLaughlin. Alpha made those concerns moot by securing the fourth position up the backstretch, advancing into second on the far turn, reeling in the free-running pacesetter with three-sixteenths left, and needing only intermittent urging from jockey Alan Garcia to win by six lengths. The final time for seven furlongs was 1:23.97. "It was a 'wow' performance," said McLaughlin. "He ran huge. Everything went right for him and he won easily. We don't win that often first-time out, so that was nice." Alpha, a Darley Stable homebred, is by 2006 Champion Three-Year-Old Male Bernardini and out of the Nijinski III mare Munnaya, who won an English listed stakes. Munnaya has produced four horses with black type, including Mystic Melody, who in France captured a listed stakes and placed in two Group 3 events.

2011 Preakness Handicapping Part 2: revised forecast [09:07]
on further reflection, doing more reading, studying, & watching race replays, I'm still backing the 11, Animal Kingdom, but have adjusted my other picks. The 3, King Congie is interesting but probably better as an exotics play. I have to be afraid of Dialled In, in a race where the pace projects to be quicker than the Derby was, which will aid his late run. Other major players besides the chalks? I like Astrology, midnight Interlude, & Mr Commons a lot, but my other main key horse is the 6, Sway Away. He's very dangerous, along with Mucho Macho Man. The only ones to throw out are 2 & 12. Hope this helps.

Team Kimberleigh - In Loving Memory of Zips Profit aka P Man [02:45]
A Short video I have put together in memory of my beloved Profit who passed away Jan 19 2011. He was an incredible athlete, 22 years old and such a gentle giant. He brought so much happiness to my life and it was always an incredible rush to run barrels on him. They say every barrel racer hopes she can find the one horse who can win that World Championship but I dont believe thats true for all of us. Profit was a World Champion to me, yes he won some races and even won money but more importantly he was a true champion. He wont be well known or famous and hundreds of girls didnt scream and get excited when he entered the arena and his name was called, that is except for one girl...me. Thanks for giving me the ride of a lifetime everytime my P Man. You were my Hot Shot, My Scamper, my Secretariat all into one! "In frenzied excitement he eats up the ground; he paws fiercely, rejoicing in his strength, and charges into the fray, afraid of nothing, when the trumpet sounds." (Job 39: 21-24}

--Face Your Fear-- [01:57]
Hope this is at least sliiiiighhhtly epic in some way because I've spent a bit longer on this than any recent video... The bits with the race commentary are supposed to show what can happen when you aren't afraid to try, when faced with the possibility of failure. 100-1 shots sometimes win (Mon Mome's National). Matt Crawley could easily have pulled up Last Rose of Summer in a low grade race at Mussleburgh after his saddle slipped, and no one would have blamed him. But he kept going and jumped about 6 hurdles bareback before riding out a finish to win. And Kauto Star regained the Cheltenham Gold Cup, when every statistic suggested it couldn't be done. When I ride, whether it's exercising, schooling, or in a race, I'm not afraid of falling, I'm afraid of screwing up and letting down the horse, the trainer, the owner etc...In my experience, the biggest fear of failure comes when you're unbeaten. Once you get that first defeat out of the way the risk of failure seems less, as does it's cost. Anyway...that's what the general idea of this video is about. If you're afraid to have a shot at what you want, you'll never have a chance to get it. All the fallers (both horse, and jockey) were fine. I don't like some of the voicover bits in the first half, but the words seemed to fit, so I suppose it doesn't matter what they sound like. Hope you enjoy it :)
