1991 Jockey Club Gold Cup [05:07]
Festin, the Argentine horse who has earned more than $2 million by charging from last place to first, did it again yesterday when he charged through the homestretch at Belmont Park and snatched the $850000 Jockey Club Gold Cup from Chief Honcho and Strike the Gold. It was a classic performance in a classic race for the 5-year-old traveler, who seems to thrive in New York. He has raced 10 times this year, from California to Massachusetts, but he hadn't won in three starts in four months since he zoomed from last to first to win the Nassau County Handicap at Belmont in June. And with the same style and the same result on the same track, he repeated the performance in the Gold Cup. He did it exactly four weeks before the ultimate racing test of the year, the Breeders' Cup series at Churchill Downs. And for Festin and most of the other stars of the season, the road to Louisville was next. In fact, Festin was already packing. "He's leaving tomorrow for Kentucky," said Ron McAnally, who trains the horse for Burton Kinerk. "We were going to take him back to California, but all horses need time to build up their strength." Twilight Agenda Sets Pace For three-quarters of a mile yesterday, Festin shared last place with Strike the Gold, another late runner who hadn't won since he took the Kentucky Derby five months ago. Up front, the lead was held from the start by Twilight Agenda, the California speed horse flown cross-country by D. Wayne Lukas only three days before the race. He ...

Worlds Best Race Horse Black Caviar steps out in style at Sandown [00:28]
Black Caviar took her most positive step so far towards a return to racing with a surprise first public appearance for the year at Sandown on Tuesday morning. The unbeaten mare contested a jump-out, her first piece of serious racetrack competition since her famous Royal Ascot victory in June. Sitting deep from the start of the 800m contest, Black Caviar domimated the jump-out from the home turn as she put a space between herself and her rivals. "It was just a soft half-mile jump-out and I'm very happy with her," trainer Peter Moody told AAP. "Like a pig in mud. "It was a great opportunity to have a little trip away on a great surface." The Sandown excursion confirmed Black Caviar is making excellent progress as he prepares for an exhibition gallop between races on her home track at Caulfield on February 2. It's likely to be her final public appearance at the track. Black Caviar is scheduled to make her racing return in the $500000 Group One Lightning Stakes at Flemington on February 16. "That's the race we've always suggested will be the race she kicks off in," Moody said. A farewell campaign for the $6.8 million earner is expected to take in races in Sydney and Brisbane. Black Caviar took her record to 22 wins from 22 starts when she overcame muscle tears and bruising to win the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot. This Video is in the Public Domain.

Winners, Lowlife & Losers BOOK TRAILER [00:55]
It's February 2010, my birthday, and Ashma's Gold[NZ] has just won a race on the Sunshine Coast, Australia! What a thrill, being part-owner through a syndicate of this thoroughbred mare, who has done what 90% of thoroughbred horses never do: win a race at a major race course! And what a journey it's been to reach this point, to be able to enjoy these thrilling moments even while Dementia/Alzheimer's disease has been trying to sap and destroy my mental faculties over the past four years while I have been collating these memoirs of the participants, who have played their respective parts in my life's journey.

Champ Kart Onboard 12/31/12 - Providence / Feature Race [05:17]
Onboard footage of the Champ Kart Feature Race from the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Rhode Island. Tonight on New Year's Eve is the 5th Annual Coffee Cup and Race #2 of the Fatheadz Eyewear Indoor Karting Series. After locking into the Feature Race from the Heat Race, I started 15th out of the 26 karts that started. This race was a wreckfest. When the first caution came out, I nearly ran into Tim in the #15 kart. When another caution came out, I nearly ran into DJ in the #60 kart and was able to avoid him and the other karts that were involved in the accident. After the front runners were retiring from mechanical failues or crashes, I found myself in 6th place. I was having an awesome run and was trying to deliver Katie and Magic a great finish to give as a farewell gift since Puppy in my Pocket: Adventures in Pocketville was coming to an end today and was removed from the air by Boomerang. I had Katie and Magic riding aboard with me to keep me calm and try to have fun racing. The great run sadly came to an end on the final restart. With the leaders bunching up to close to one another, the people behind me were literally crushing my kart. When Nick in the #41 kart was behind me, he was pushing my bumper so hard, that my seat was being compressed. When I tried to accelerate the kart, the kart did not go. I had to stop on track, because I thought something broke in my kart. The offical gives me the thumbs up, which meant that nothing was wrong with the kart. I was able to get ...

1994 Mother Goose Stakes - Lakeway [06:10]
Belmont Week came to a record-setting close yesterday when the California filly Lakeway won the Mother Goose Stakes by more than four lengths over Cinnamon Sugar and by 10 lengths over Inside Information, and pranced to the head of the class of 3-year-old fillies. It was one day after the California colt Tabasco Cat won the Belmont Stakes and moved to the head of the class of 3-year-old colts, and Lakeway gave an even more powerful performance. She not only won for the fifth time in six starts but buried the hometown favorite, Inside Information, who had won six of her seven races. And she did it by knocking one and one-fifth seconds off the record for the race in its 38th running. The two favorites ran together stride for stride for more than half a mile, but then Kent Desormeaux nudged his filly, and Lakeway took charge. She collared Inside Information with three-eighths of a mile to go, edged past her turning for home and widened the lead relentlessly down the stretch. As she flashed home, she had 4 1/4 lengths on Cinnamon Sugar, a 27-1 long shot, who in turn had six lengths on Inside Information. They cruised in fast fractions of 1:083/5 for three-quarters of a mile and 1:332/5 for the mile. And Lakeway completed the mile and an eighth in 1:462/5 , shattering the record for the race set in 1978 by Caesar's Wish, but still a full second off the track record for the distance set in 1973 by the incomparable Secretariat. It was also the fifth record set in three days of ...
