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.

1987 Strub Stakes [01:09]
Carl Grinstead, one of the owners of Snow Chief, thought he had won. Trainer Mel Stute, who was standing in an aisle in the box-seat area, said he had a perfect position in line with the wire and thought Snow Chief had lost. Eddie Delahoussaye was riding Ferdinand, the horse who charged to the finish line almost stride for stride with Snow Chief. Unlike Grinstead and Stute, Delahoussaye wasn't wearing glasses, and his view was much closer. But Delahoussaye couldn't be sure who had won. That's how close the 40th running of the Charles H. Strub Stakes was on Sunday at Santa Anita, with 58806 fans just as unsure of the outcome as the principals. Finally, the photo-finish camera showed that Snow Chief had beaten Ferdinand by the smallest of noses, and Charlie Whittingham, the trainer of the runner-up, shoved his hands in his pockets, looked at the ground and walked around just outside the winner's circle. "Just one more jump," Whittingham said wistfully. Whittingham has won the Strub twice, but in three of the last four years he's found himself saying the same thing. In 1985, it was Precisionist over Whittingham's Greinton, by a nose just as short as on Sunday; in 1984, Desert Wine got to the wire a neck in front of Load the Cannons, another runner from Whittingham's barn. Stute should have been the last observer to doubt that Snow Chief had won, because all week long he had convinced himself that his colt was going to dominate the $516750 race. Snow Chief, a victim of a bone ...

1994 Hollywood Preview Stakes [01:09]
After running six furlongs in a sprightly 1:08 4/5 at Santa Anita on Oct. 23, Afternoon Deelites came back Sunday in the $95250 Hollywood Prevue Breeders' Cup and won by three lengths with virtually no encouragement from jockey Kent Desormeaux. His seven-furlong time of 1:20 4/5 broke the stakes record by a fifth of a second and came within two-fifths of the track record, which was set by the 7-year-old Memo, another Mandella trainee, in the Triple Bend Handicap in July. With two scratches, there were only three horses for Afternoon Deelites to beat, and he left them with an electrifying burst of speed at the top of the stretch. Valid Wager, the 13-10 favorite who had been second in the Arlington-Washington Futurity, finished second, four lengths ahead of Hunt for Missouri. Southern Tempo, the leader after a half-mile, was last, beaten by 18 lengths. "That horse that won accelerated like no other 2-year-old I've seen this year," said Chris McCarron, who rode Hunt for Missouri. "He accelerated like maybe Mandella was running a 4-year-old against us. Maybe they ought to check this one's lip tattoo." Like Soul of the Matter, Afternoon Deelites is a West Virginia-bred and a son of Private Terms. Bacharach said that Afternoon Deelites' dam, Intimate Girl, was injured and retired after running only one race. Soul of the Matter, this year's Super Derby winner, was fifth in the Kentucky Derby and fourth in the Breeders' Cup Classic. "This colt's a lot like Soul of the Matter ...
