1998 Breeders' Cup Mile + Post Race [13:40]
Regardless of the odds it is not wise to dismiss any horse trained by Michael Dickinson. The lesson was manifested dramatically this afternoon as Da Hoss, at 11-1 odds and in only his second start after a 22-month layoff, won the $1 million Breeders' Cup Mile for the second time in three years. With a half-furlong remaining the 6-year-old gelding appeared beaten as another long shot, Hawksley Hill, pushed his nose in front on the outside. But under the jockey John Velazquez, who had never had a Breeders' Cup mount before this year, Da Hoss rallied and prevailed by a head at the wire. The final time for the race on a turf course rated firm was 1:351/5 , three-fifths of a second faster than the clocking when Da Hoss won the Breeders' Cup Mile at Woodbine in Toronto in 1996 under Gary Stevens. This time, he returned $25.20 for a $2 win ticket. Miesque, a champion in both Europe and North America, won consecutive runnings of the Mile in 1987-88, as did Lure in 1992-93. But in many respects Da Hoss's twin triumphs are more extraordinary, because the only start he made between them was a three-quarter-length victory in allowance company at Colonial Downs in Virginia on Oct. 11. Da Hoss has been plagued with physical problems since he was a foal. ''A fetlock when he was a foal,'' Dickinson said, ''a pair of bone spurs as a yearling, another fetlock in June of last year, some lameness last fall. There have been some vet bills. His groom spends six hours a day with him, massaging ...

1991 Kentucky Derby: Full ABC Broadcast [01:09:44]
Supposedly suffering from slow workouts, fast competition and even the wrong pedigree, Strike the Gold won the 117th Kentucky Derby today with a rousing end run through the homestretch that defeated Best Pal by nearly two lengths and buried the other favorites by much more. The 3-year-old colt, often called "a horse of destiny" by his trainer, Nick Zito, had won only two races before he entered the starting gate for the most prestigious race of all. But he won this one with a dramatic move to the outside as the 16 colts turned for home. And once clear of the herd, he zoomed through the stretch, overtook Sea Cadet, outraced Best Pal and won all the roses. At the finish, in a race billed as a free-for-all among four star colts, Strike the Gold had 1 3/4 lengths on Best Pal, the speed horse from California. Then it was 1 3/4 lengths to Mane Minister, who went off at 86-1 and paid $25.60 for $2 just for running third. Next came another outsider, Green Alligator, a 16-1 shot, and then came the champion: Fly So Free, winner of the Eclipse Award last year as the best juvenile colt in the country. And far up the track in 10th place came Hansel, the record-setting winner of the Jim Beam Stakes and the favorite with the betting public when the horses went to the post today. Sea Cadet, another California speedball, played his proper role by taking the lead and holding it until he was nailed in the stretch and faded to eighth. Zito, an emotional man who dreams that "the Pearly Gates ...

2012 Fingers Lakes 355K at the Glen - Marcos Ambrose Wins [02:27]
Marcos Ambrose won the Finger Lakes 355k at Watkins Glen International in one of the most dramatic, exciting road course finishes ever. Kyle Busch led at the white flag when Kyle Busch got into some oil on the track which is supposedly from the Bobby Labonte and slowed him down, Brad Keselowski couldn't slow down into the oil and got into the rear of Kyle Busch and spinning Kyle Busch. Then, Brad Keselowski and Marcos Ambrose raced to the checkered flag, beating and banging, running through the grass with Marcos Ambrose getting by Brad Keselowski and winning his 1st race of the season, 2nd victory at Watkins Glen and his 2nd career win in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Watkins Glen International.

2012 Breeders' Cup contender - Acclamation makes it seven straight with easy Eddie Read repeat [02:55]
Allowed to walk the dog on the lead through slow fractions over 1 1/8-miles on Del Mar's turf course, Acclamation made 1-to-2 look like a gift, strolling home by 2 3/4-lengths over four rivals to win for the seventh straight time in graded stakes company while repeating in the $300000 Eddie Read (Grade I). "(Whether) he sets fast fractions or slow fractions, he always comes home," said jockey Patrick Valenzuela of the 2011 Eclipse-award Champion Older Horse. "I've ridden some champions like Sunday Silence and Arazi, but for any horse to go out and set the pace like that and come home the final quarter like he does, that's a true race horse." The win pushed career earnings to over $1.95 million for the 6-year-old California-bred son of Unusual Heat, who could attempt to repeat in the $1 million Pacific Classic at the end of August. Options are open for either the Breeders' Cup Classic or Turf as the end of the year goal at Santa Anita. "Acclamation and Tom Knust (Valenzuela's agent) made this comeback happen," said Valenzuela, who returned from yet another retirement earlier this year. "My weight's good and I just want to get more winners." A champion in Argentina, Interaction rallied for second at 11-to-1 in his fourth US start and Casino Host rounded out the trifecta at 6-to-1 making his first start in the barn of Ron Ellis.
