::||Frankel:: I'm The World's G reatest [03:33]
I was at Ascot to see this mighty champion run his last race. In winning the Champion Stakes, he thrashed the second highest rated horse in the world, Cirrus De Aigles and 4th highest rated, Nathaniel. IMO he is the greatest we've seen and it's a privilege to have seen him in the flesh. He retires unbeaten in 14 races, winning by an aggregate of over 70 lengths. No one came close to beating him and he did so much much for his trainer, Sir Henry Cecil who is battling cancer. I will never forget this horse and what he and his legacy will and have done for British racing. Thank you Frankel, if any of your foals are are half as good as you then we are in for a treat. I OWN NOTHING BUT THE EDITING.

You Are a S atellite ::|| My Favourite Horses [02:48]
Read description!! Hello all. A new video here. I apologise for the HIDEOUS quality of a lot of the pictures, I'm not sure why it's so horrible, but I didn't have clipd for most of them! ALSO yet again I have two strikes so I could very well be deleted for the third time very soon. I'm in the process of getting a backup account sorted so bear with... ANYHOO, this video is just a personal thing for me really. All the horses in this video mean something to me. I'm quite a new racing fan (been into it about four years now) so I've only included more recent horses-there are many more like Secretariat, Red Rum, Desert Orchid, Arkle etc from years ago who would have made the list too! Some of these horses you will be familiar with, others not so much (jump racing is only popular in Britain where I Iive really). There's a mixture of flat horses and jump ones. They're not necessarily the 'greatest horses' of all time, but to me they are all special in some way. Some appear more than once because I had good clips of them, eg Frankel, Denman etc. My american racing isn't up to scratch, and these are the horses from America who have really captured my interest. Who are of you guys' favourite horses? Whack them in the comment box if you want :) Here is a list of the horses all in the order they appear in the video: Frankel (No explanation needed, best horse in the world, unbeaten in 13 races so far, and I'm going to see him race at Ascot next week!! Cannot wait) Snow Fairy (7 time ...

1994 Breeders' Cup Classic + Post Race [10:15]
The Breeders' Cup horse that arrived last at Churchill Downs ran first Saturday as Concern beat Tabasco Cat by a neck in the $3-million Classic, ending on a high note a long year of unfulfilled promise for the 3-year-old colt from Maryland. Trainer Dick Small's style is to ship a horse to a race at a late hour, and by van instead of plane. He made no exception with Concern, even though the late-running son of Broad Brush was appearing in the most important stake of his 21-race career. A 10 1/2-hour trip brought Concern and the trainer to Kentucky at 3 am Friday, long after all the other Breeders' Cup horses had settled in and been tested during workouts over the Churchill Downs track. Concern did all of his Breeders' Cup preparations at Pimlico, where he worked a mile on Monday. "I find that most horses do better in their own surroundings," Small said. "It's better not to disrupt their daily rhythms." Small played it even closer to the vest when Concern ran in the Travers in August. For that race, the horse was driven to Upstate New York and arrived at 4 am on the day of the race, about 13 hours before post time. He lost by a neck to Holy Bull, the probable horse of the year who didn't run in the Breeders' Cup. Being beaten by necks and running second and third have been Concern's style, a rut that ended in time for his owner-breeder, Robert Meyerhoff, to collect a purse of $1.56 million, more than half a million dollars more than his colt had earned from all his previous ...

1979 Belmont Stakes: CBS Broadcast [18:03]
History and the long, demanding stretch at Belmont Park had caught up with Spectacular Bid. With a short distance remaining in the Belmont Stakes last Saturday, he was leading, seemingly drawing away from his seven rivals. He was four lengths in front of 12-to-1 shot General Assembly and looking just as strong as he had while rattling off victories in 12 consecutive stakes races. Just 660 yards to go to the third Triple Crown in three years. But then Spectacular Bid began to behave like a very fat man trying to run up a very steep hill. In the stretch curve he drifted out from the rail. His lead diminished. He was having trouble getting air into his lungs, and his legs seemed to desert him. With a furlong to go, he was a beaten horse, seconds away from joining the company of Pensive, Tim Tam, Carry Back, Northern Dancer, Kauai King, Forward Pass, Majestic Prince and Canonero II—the band of Derby and Preakness winners that came a cropper at Belmont. The winner, Coastal, was one of those lightly raced colts that periodically come out of old-line barns to waste Belmont pretenders. The steady Golden Act, spear-carrier-in-chief in the classic races, was second. Bid, who had been described by his trainer, Bud Delp, as the greatest horse ever to look through a bridle, was looking at the nearly four lengths of track between his nose and Coastal's as he finished third. Did Bid's young jockey, Ron Franklin, ride the horse badly? Some of the jocks in the race and those watching from ...

1989 Breeders' Cup Classic + Pre & Post Race [34:11]
Sunday Silence grittily held off a desperate late charge by Easy Goer to win the $3 million Breeders' Cup Classic by a neck today at Gulfstream Park. The tight finish of this fourth meeting between the decade's greatest racing rivals brought a crowd of more than 50000 to a roar and settled the sport's major titles. Sunday Silence, who had beaten Easy Goer in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness before Easy Goer trounced him in the Belmont Stakes, is assured of being voted thoroughbred racing's Horse of the Year. Emotions ran high long after the official sign was posted. For Sunday Silence's backers and handlers, this was a long-awaited day of vindication. After the Belmont, their colt had been widely dismissed as only second-best despite holding a 2-1 edge in the rivalry. For Easy Goer's many fans, who made him the 1-2 betting favorite today, the result was flabbergasting. They found some excuses for him, but were devastated to see their colt emerge from this season as merely the second-best 3-year-old instead of being acclaimed as the champion of the decade. It was small consolation for Easy Goer's connections, the Ogden Phipps family and the trainer Shug McGaughey, that they won two of the six earlier Cup races today, with Rhythm in the Juvenile and Dancing Spree in the Sprint. Sunday Silence, a 3-year-old son of Halo and the Understanding mare Wishing Well, paid $6 for $2 to win as the second choice in the Classic betting and ran the mile and a quarter in 2:00 1/5 ...
