Persistently - 2010 Personal Ensign (G1) [02:25]
Persistently waited patiently behind a speed duel and made an inexorable rally in the stretch to upset Rachel Alexandra by a length on Sunday at Saratoga Race Course in the 63rd running of the Grade 1, $300000 Personal Ensign for fillies and mares. Reigning Horse of the Year and odds-on favorite Rachel Alexandra, making her first start at the Spa since her victory in last year's Grade 1 Woodward, was away alertly but was challenged immediately by second choice Life At Ten. With Rachel Alexandra racing along the inside and Life At Ten glued to her flank, the two favorites raced in tandem as they passed the grandstand for the first time, with Rachel Alexandra floating her rival several paths wide as they entered the first turn. As the battle continued up front, Persistently settled outside in fourth, 14 ½ lengths behind as the pacesetters dictated fractions of 47.73 for the half-mile and 1:12.02 for six furlongs. Rachel Alexandra put away Life At Ten at the quarter pole, but Persistently had already begun to whittle away at the deficit. Set down for the drive, Rachel Alexandra offered temporary resistance to Persistently's bid before the long shot collared the favorite in the final 30 yards. "She had a very good trip all the way behind the leaders," said winning jockey Alan Garcia. "At the three-eighths pole, I knew I had to move, and she did it. I knew she was doing this well." Calvin Borel, rider aboard Rachel Alexandra, offered no excuses. "I had everything my way, and ...

2009 Belmont Stakes - Summer Bird [03:05]
A year ago jockey Kent Desormeaux lost a bid for a Triple Crown when he had to pull up heavy favorite Big Brown. On June 6 in the Belmont Stakes (gr. I), he got his elusive Belmont win when he guided Summer Bird to an upset win in the third leg of the Triple Crown. All eyes were on the other bird in the field, Mine That Bird, but he came up short, finishing third as Dunkirk got second. Both Summer Bird and Mine That Bird are sons of Birdstone , who won the Belmont in 2004. Some might criticize jockey Calvin Borel for moving too soon in the 12-furlong race, but Borel said following the race that though he might have done so, "we just got outrun today." Borel would have become the first jockey to win the three Triple Crown races on different horses. He won the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) on Mine That Bird and the BlackBerry Preakness Stakes (gr. I) on Rachel Alexandra. Dunkirk went to the lead out of the gate, followed by Charitable Man, Miners Escape and Mr. Hot Stuff. Both Summer Bird and Mine That Bird were in the back of the 10-horse field as they went a quarter in :23.41. John Velazquez still had Dunkirk on the lead while Miners Escape took second as they went the first half-mile in :47.13 and six furlongs in 1:12.43. Mine That Bird was in last, but only about seven lengths from the lead. Meanwhile, Desormeaux had the spot that Borel normally has, sitting on the rail as the field approached the turn for home and the lengthy stretch run at Belmont ...

Super Saver: Travers Workout - August 21 [01:15]
With jockey Calvin Borel aboard, Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver breezed five furlongs in 1:01.13 in company with The Roundhouse on the main track. "I wanted to keep him focused down the lane, and having a target early on kept him focused," said trainer Todd Pletcher of the WinStar Farm color-bearer. "Calvin [asked him] at the top of the lane, and he really lengthened out." While Super Saver normally goes out later in the morning, Pletcher sent him out early because he wanted Borel, who was flying to Oklahoma to ride this afternoon, to get "refamiliarized" with the Maria's Mon colt. "Calvin was going to leave last night, but he rearranged his schedule so he could be on the horse this morning," said Pletcher. "I wanted Calvin to have a feel for him and he seemed to be pleased with the way he was going." The trainer said he expected an improved performance in the Travers from Super Saver, who following his Derby win was eighth in the Preakness and then fourth, beaten 4 ¾ lengths, by Lookin At Lucky in the Haskell on August 1. "I think he's going to run an improved race from the Haskell," he said. "Having that race under his belt has helped him. If you look at his form this year, he ran decently in Tampa [third in the Tampa Bay Derby], moved forward with a better race in Arkansas [second in the Arkansas Derby], and then another move forward, so I think he's going to respond the same way."
