Turbulent Descent - 2011 Test (G1) [01:42]
In the week leading up to the 86th running of the Grade 1, $250000 Test Stakes, trainer Mike Puype called the Saratoga fixture a "resume" race for his 3-year-old star Turbulent Descent. Puype traveled east from his base at Del Mar in search of greatness, and his brilliant bay daughter of Congrats delivered the signature performance he was looking for, winning the seven-furlong Test in electrifying style Saturday at Saratoga Race Course. With powerful acceleration at the three-sixteenth pole, Turbulent Descent surged out and around leader Roman Treasure and on to a 3 ¾-length victory over a resilient Pomeroy's Pistol in a time of 1:24.17. Roman Treasure finished third. As the 4-5 favorite in the field of eight, Turbulent Descent returned $3.90 for a $2 win bet. The $150000 winner's share of the purse pushed her career earnings to $828350. In the winner's circle after the race, Puype quietly championed Turbulent Descent, who has now won six of eight career starts, including two other Grade 1 races in California.

The Mig's "Fan of the Day" Contest at Saratoga [02:31]
The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) has started a "Fan of the Day" promotion in which former jockey and current NYRA television analyst Richard Migliore will select two lucky fans for special behind-the-scenes access. Every weekday -- Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday -- for the remainder of the meet, Migliore will randomly select two winners from the crowd. He will then accompany them into the paddock before a race, and then to the winner's circle to watch the race. Additionally, after the race they will take part in the winner's circle photograph ceremony and receive copies of the photo to memorialize their "Fan of the Day" experience. Migliore, who began riding in 1980 and a year later won the Eclipse Award as the nation's top apprentice, retired in 2010 after winning more than 4400 races, including 362 stakes. Twice the leading rider in New York, "The Mig" currently serves as a NYRA racing office associate in addition to his role as a broadcast analyst.

Even If You Cannot Hear My Voice:// RIP Rewilding [01:00]
Whipped this up in a couple of minutes, I didn't have a lot of footage but this isn't meant to be that kind of video, it's just a tribute to one of my favourite flat horses, Rewilding, who was sadly put down today after suffering a broken leg in the King George, won by Nathaniel (whose jockey, William Buick I have to say was very quick to send his condolences to connections of Rewilding after the race, in true sporting style). Luckily, Frankie Dettori walked away virtually unharmed, it was a horrible fall and things could have been so much worse for him :( He was a brilliant horse, third in the derby and a dual group 1 winner, who conquered the mighty So You Think at Royal Ascot in June. Thoughts go out all the connections of this wonderful horse, who had so much more to give. Tragedies like this are rare in flat racing and it's marred the win of the really progressive Nathaniel, who was a worthy winner of the race. I know there are more tragic things going in the world at the moment away from horse racing, but this is just my tribute to a great horse. It's just a very sad thing to have happened. RIP Beautiful! (Also I was going to include footage of the moment he broke down, but I couldn't do it, it's a horrible sight that I don't think anybody wants to see again)

Tim Tetrick Calls A Race At The Meadowlands [02:13]
Harness racing's leading driver Tim Tetrick stepped out of the sulky and into the announcer's booth to call the first race on Thursday, July 14, 2011 at Meadowlands Racetrack. The 29-year-old reinsman faced the challenge of a nine-horse field. The race was won by Oasis Dream (No. 4) in a time of 1:57.3. "I called a few races at some small fairs," said Tetrick, who had long dreamt of getting on the mic at the sport's leading track. "My dad used to announce all the time and when he would have a horse to drive, I would announce that race. "I don't know how [Meadowlands announcer] Sam McKee does it," he added after the race. "This is hard!" Tetrick leads all drivers in North America for the fifth straight year with 407 wins and $6.7 million in earnings through July 14, 2011.

Eliza interviews an up and coming young jockey : Jack Tudor !!! [00:29]
The first pony race at Bonvilston for 128cm and under ponies over 4 furlongs was won by Bugsy ridden by 9 year old Jack Tudor who I caught up with after the race. He was a little shy I think but certainly a future name to watch for as he gave his pony a great ride! Paul Nicholls - a future work rider??? ;)
