New York Watch: Hunters Bay [01:59]
Ghostzapper and Smokn Frolic won major races in New York during their racing careers, and their son 3-year-old son now has the opportunity to create his own legacy. Named Hunters Bay, the regally-bred colt became the 11th horse featured in the New York Watch series, which shines the spotlight on promising colts and fillies that have recently cleared the maiden and allowance ranks at Aqueduct Racetrack, Belmont Park, or Saratoga Race Course. Fifth in his debut after breaking slowly at Gulfstream Park on April 10, Hunters Bay was ready to roll today at Belmont Park in his second start. Away alertly this time, he set fractions of :23.14 and :45.57 while receiving pace pressure from Loquacious, began to open on the field at the top of the stretch, and drew clear under a brisk hand ride to score by 8 ½ lengths. We thought stretching him out would be the key and hoped hed break a little better, said Hunters Bays trainer Todd Pletcher, who conditioned Smokn Frolic during her racing days. He was definitely more professional second time out. He comes from a pedigree that makes it look like hell improve going longer. This is a big step forward, and hopefully he continues to improve. He could have a future. Hunters Bay, the 9-2 fifth choice in the field of six, covered the 1 1/16th-mile distance in a snappy 1:41.08. While Pletcher noted how he thought the track was playing on the quick side, winning Jockey John Velazquez was awed nonetheless. They were cooking out there, said ...

New York Watch: Cocalero [02:39]
A sluggish start couldnt stop Cocalero from breaking his maiden on debut and becoming the 10th horse featured in the New York Watch series, which shines the spotlight on promising colts and fillies that have recently cleared the maiden and allowance ranks at Aqueduct Racetrack, Belmont Park, or Saratoga Race Course. By AP Indy and out of Grade 1 winner Got Koko, Cocalero, a $175000 yearling, topped the 2009 OBS Spring Sale as a juvenile when he was purchased for $675000 by John Ferguson, agent for Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who raced the colt at Belmont Park under the colors of Darley Stable. Despite being coupled in the wagering along with fellow first-time starter Stratford Hill, another well-bred son of AP Indy, Cocalero received only mild betting support at 5-1. Cocalero, after loading reluctantly, reared in the starting gate. He stood still for the break, but was away several lengths slowly. It was unexpected, trainer Tom Albertrani said of Cocaleros gate problems. First time out, you never know what to expect or how they are going to act. He was really tense in the gate. Jockey Alan Garcia didnt panic, however, and let the Cocalero bide his time at the back of the pack. The bay raced with his head held high through the far turn, but got down to business once he was swung out at the top of the stretch, splitting rivals and closing strongly to win by 1 ¾ lengths. [Garcia] was really patient, and the horse was able to recover for him, said Albertrani. He ...

Youth's Pride breaking from gates (outside horse) [01:18]
This is his first time breaking from the starting gates. Before this, one of the guys actually hand opened the gate in front of him and then he came out. He hesitated compared to the other two horses who have a little more experience because he has never had the gates open without someone manually doing it--many horses react like this first time.
