Cowgirl Tuff! Cancer doesn't own my dream! [00:33]
Doctors tried to say I "wouldn't feel like racing" when they were talking to me about the 16 rounds of chemo I would be taking for the breast cancer that was found on my annual mammogram. Well, this video was taken on December 11, 2010, only 10 days after my 15th treatment. Doctors just don't understand the spirit of a cowgirl who rides a great horse! Be inspired to get your mammogram and to know cancer doesn't own your dreams!

Buffalo Race Festival Kicks Off in Thailand [01:38]
Most people are familiar with a horse race, but what about a buffalo race? This entertaining sport is held each year in Thailand. Thousands of locals and tourists flocked to watch the event. On Friday thousands of people gathered at a dusty track in Chonburi to watch the annual water buffalo races. As the whistle sounded, the race kicked off with the barefoot jockeys using their whip to steer the buffalo along the track to the finish line. For some jockeys it takes years to learn how to control the water buffalo. [Wanlop Saengkam, Jockey]: (male, Thai) "It's difficult. We have to practice regularly to control the buffalos. It takes a long time to do this, sometimes it takes years to be able to ride it, and you also have to love it otherwise you won't be able to control them." The festival started as a social event for farmers who gathered after the rice harvesting season every October. It was an informal celebration for buffalo. [Chonburi Padipat Saeng-ngern, Spectator]: (male, Thai) "I think if it doesn't take long and the racing doesn't take place everyday then it should be okay (for buffalos). This event is a fun time for villagers and it's only once a year. People are excited and having fun." The festival has attracted hundreds of local spectators and tourists to Chonburi every year, and the event has been running for 139 years. About 63 buffalo joined the day-long racing, competing in four categories -- very small, small, medium and big. The animals were trained for ...

1998 Thoroughbred Racing Hall Of Fame Inductees [02:21]
Ansel Williamson, the onetime slave who trained the first winner of the Kentucky Derby in 1875, was inducted into the thoroughbred Hall of Fame today as a legend of racing's past. He was joined by 45-year-old Bill Mott, who saddled Cigar and is a legend of the present, the youngest trainer ever enshrined. ''It came awfully early in life,'' Mott said, sounding a bit awed. ''It was never planned; it was never expected.'' Racing put its best foot forward for its 43d annual ceremony, which attracted a standing-room crowd of 1200 under a tent pitched on a field next to the National Museum of Racing across Union Avenue from the Saratoga Race Course, which is booming in its 130th year. Dozens of famous trainers and jockeys of the past sat together as footnotes to history, applauding the six racing figures being honored. Besides Williamson and Mott, they were Jacinto Vasquez, the jockey who rode 5231 winners, won the Kentucky Derby twice and won 268 stakes races, and three celebrated horses: Riva Ridge, the stablemate of Secretariat and the juvenile champion of 1971, who went on to win the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes in 1972; Bayakoa, the Argentine filly, who became a double champion in the United States by winning 16 of her 21 starts in 1989 and 1990, and Fort Marcy, three times a champion on grass and Horse of the Year for his exploits in 1970. They brought the Hall of Fame roster to 77 jockeys, 71 trainers and 154 horses. But few have been honored as early as Bill ...
