1999 Suburban Handicap Grade I [03:20]
Behrens, handling the distance, the competition and the 100-degree heat with professional sureness, raced into the upper levels of handicap horses in this country yesterday when he won the 113th running of the Suburban Handicap at Belmont Park by nearly three lengths. It was the fourth straight success for the 5-year-old bay, who now faces the second half of the year with great credentials and great expectations. In his next start, the $600000 Whitney Handicap at Saratoga on Aug. 1, Behrens will face Victory Gallop. Four weeks later, in the $1 million Pacific Classic at Del Mar, he will race Real Quiet. If there are any questions after that, all three horses should answer them in the $4 million Breeders' Cup Classic at Gulfstream Park on Nov. 6. But yesterday, Behrens left nothing unanswered. He was the overwhelming choice to outrun eight rivals on the hottest day of the year before 11364 stifled fans, and he made no mistakes. With Jorge Chavez directing the performance from the saddle, Behrens ran third after half a mile, second after three-quarters and first after one mile. Then, after extending his lead through the homestretch, he crossed the wire 2 3/4 lengths in front of the 41-1 long shot Catienus. Behrens, carrying the high weight of 121 pounds, had run a mile and a quarter in a snappy 2:01 and had staked a strong claim to the front ranks of the nation's senior horses. ''You always worry about the heat; you can't not worry about it,'' said his trainer, H. James ...

2000 Suburban Handicap - Lemon Drop Kid [00:34]
Lemon Drop Kid took some fast and serious strides toward racing's year-end honors yesterday when he outran Behrens by two and a half lengths and won the $500000 Suburban Handicap at Belmont Park in the second-fastest time in the history of the 114-year-old race. He not only defeated Behrens, who ran second to the world-class Dubai Millennium in the $5 million Dubai World Cup in March, but also flew the mile and a quarter in 1:584/5 . That time was just three-fifths of a second off the track record, set in the Suburban in 1991 by In Excess. And Lemon Drop Kid also became only the fourth horse to race a mile and a quarter in the Suburban in less than two minutes. Edgar Prado, who also rode Lemon Drop Kid to a seven-length score in the Brooklyn Handicap last month, made no secret of the fact that he had kept Behrens blocked on the rail. ''I knew I had Behrens pinned on the inside, and at the top of the stretch, I wanted to get the jump on him,'' Prado said. ''My horse just took off, and I knew Behrens was chasing me.'' Scotty Schulhofer, who trains Lemon Drop Kid, conceded that ''the position we were in didn't hurt us.'' ''He just keeps on running,'' Schulhofer said. ''He's finally got focused, and Prado is the big thing as far as the improvements go.'' And Jeanne Vance, who owns Lemon Drop Kid, said: ''This one is extra special because Behrens was in the race.'' Both Schulhofer and James Bond, the trainer of Behrens, predicted a return match in the Whitney at Saratoga on ...

2000 Jockey Club Gold Cup [02:05]
Behrens and Lemon Drop Kid bumped at the start, costing both of them momentum, even though neither was expected to set the pace in the Jockey Club Gold Cup. Unlike the Woodward, the early fractions were sustainable, :23.63 for the first quarter-mile and :46.86 for the half, although Albert the Great was under pressure from Gander, who managed a narrow lead on the backstretch. Jockey Jorge Chavez asked Albert the Great to run at the top of the lane, after a mile in 1:34.54, and the colt ...

2000 Whitney Handicap Grade I [01:52]
with blinkers, a change in equipment Schulhofer made after Lemon Drop Kid finished third by two lengths to winner Golden Missile in the Pimlico Special Handicap (G1) on May 13. Equipped with blinkers, Lemon Drop Kid won both the June 11 Brooklyn (G2) and July 4 Suburban (G2) Handicaps. "After Edgar rode him at Pimlico, and told me Lemon Drop Kid saw the gate out of the corner of his eye when he turned for home and lost his momentum, I figured, well, I better put them on him," Schulhofer ...

2000 Dubai World Cup [02:00]
was ridden by Italian jockey Frankie Dettori in racing to his eighth victory in nine career starts, including two wins this year. The winner, a British-bred, had his name changed from Yareek for the sole purpose of winning the first Dubai World Cup in the millennium. Dubai Millennium won six of his first seven starts on the grass in England and France, including the Queen Elizabeth II at Ascot. In his next start, he won the 1i-mile Maktoum Challenge at Nad al Sheba. Donated by Jeff ...
