1995 Santa Anita Derby [12:44]
He wasn't named after Larry Bird, but Larry The Legend became a star in his own right yesterday when he captured the $700000 Santa Anita Derby in stirring fashion under Gary Stevens. A humble $2500 sales purchase, standing but 15 hands high and weighing only 900 pounds, Larry The Legend knocked off two giants. He caught previously undefeated Afternoon Deelites, the 7-5 favorite with Kent Desormeaux, at the wire while the rally of 2-year-old champion Timber Country fell short. With Pat Day aboard, Timber Country could do no better than fourth as the 9-5 second choice of 36003 fans.

RTD WON 3rd Race 1 6 13 AQU [08:09]
RTD WON the 3rd race Sunday, January 6th at The Big A! Bruce said the strategy was: win the race to the first turn and beat the #1 horse out of the gate then see if you can hold on to the lead all the way to the wire. Jose " Save 5 lbs" Ortiz executed the plan to perfection and got RTD to relax a bit mid-stretch so he had a bit left when he needed it at the wire, which he certainly did! So RTD won his first open condition and moves up to the second open condition. So far so good ~ he came out of the race fine, so we are good to go!

Pleasant Stage noses out La Spia at the wire to win the 1991 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies.

2003 Breeders' Cup Turf + Post Race [19:28]
Through its first 19 runnings, the Breeders' Cup Turf consistently has produced close finishes. In the first 10 years, the largest margin of victory was half a length. The most decisive winner was Daylami, the 8-5 favorite who won by two lengths four years ago at Gulfstream Park. The 20th Breeders' Cup Turf on Saturday gave tight a whole new meaning. For the first time in the history of any Breeders' Cup race, there was a dead heat for the win when defending champion High Chaparral and 14-1 shot Johar couldn't be separated at the wire. It took three pictures and some 13 minutes before the photo finish sign came down and the dead heat was confirmed. Falbrav, the 7-2 second choice, almost made it a triple dead heat. He was only a head back after having the lead approaching the wire. Watching the race live, many believed High Chaparral had won. Jockey Mick Kinane thought so, especially after former jockey Donna Barton, who was working on horseback for NBC, approached him as if he had. Richard Mulhall, racing manager for the Thoroughbred Corp., which owns Johar, agreed with Kinane. "When I first saw it, I thought we were second," he said. "I didn't think he got up. After I watched the replay over and over and over, then I thought we won it. "When it was taking so long, I was thinking, well, it has to be a dead heat. I'm happy with a dead heat. It's no disgrace to dead heat with High Chaparral. He's an awful good horse." It was the third of four victories on the day for ...

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 ...
