2003 Kentucky Derby: Full Broadcast [01:05:32]
There on the track was Empire Maker, the impeccably bred favorite with a tender foot, a cocky trainer from Brooklyn and a plurality of the public's money on his back. There was Atswhatimtalknbout, the Hollywood horse, partly owned by movie royalty, and there, too, was Indian Express, the rhythm-and-bluegrass colt whose owner was a legendary record producer in the 1950's. But for the two minutes that count the most on the first Saturday in May, the real star was a New York-bred gelding named Funny Cide, who was sent off at the ''yeah, right'' odds of better than 12-1 and romped off with a victory of a length and three-quarters in the 129th running of the Kentucky Derby. But forget for a moment Funny Cide's glitzier and supposedly more formidable competition. By any standard, this was an improbable victory. A New York-bred had never won the Derby, and the last time a gelding won was in 1929, when Clyde Van Dusen posted a two-length victory. The public was caught unawares, and six buddies from Sackets Harbor, NY, who own Funny Cide and run under the banner of Sackatoga Stable with four other partners were stunned by their good fortune. ''We are a three-horse stable,'' said Jackson Knowlton, one of the owners who bought the gelding for $75000 in a private sale. ''We are the little guys in the game.

Yougottawanna wires 2004 Seabiscuit Handicap at Bay Meadows [02:32]
Yougottawanna had quite the seesaw career. As a 2-year-old, he stunned Officer with an upset win in the 2001 California Cup Juvenile. He lost his next three starts, then defeated Danthebluegrassman and stablemate Cappuchino in the Grade 3 El Camino Real Derby. He missed nearly a year of racing after the El Camino, and lost 11 consecutive races after his return. He ended the losing streak with an eight-length victory in an option claiming race, from which he was claimed for $50000 John F. Martin. Jerry Hollendorfer took him back for $80000 two starts later and wheeled him back in the Grade 3 Seabiscuit Handicap at Bay Meadows on Memorial Day 2004. In the Seagiscuit, Yougottawanna set a fast pace and turned back stablemate Gold Ruckus to register a 3/4-length victory under jockey Russell Baze. Yougottawanna posted a repeat victory in the 2005 Seabiscuit.
