Big Blue Kitten - 2011 National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame (G2) [02:01]
Kenneth and Sarah Ramsey's homebred Big Blue Kitten rolled into the Grade 2, $150000 National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame on a four-race win streak, and with a powerful run along the rail in the lane made it five in a row Friday at Saratoga Race Course. The lone runner in the field of seven 3-year-olds who had never previously appeared in a stakes race, the bay son of 2004 Champion Turf Horse Kitten's Joy went off as the 9-2 third choice in the wagering and won by 1 ¼ lengths. Under leading Saratoga rider John Velazquez, he completed the 1 1/16-mile turf race in 1:42.91. Big Blue Kitten paid $11 for a $2 win bet. Perregaux, the longest shot on the board at 19-1, ran strongly inside the sixteenth pole and finished second, a half-length in front of Humble and Hungry. In the winner's circle after the race, a jubilant Kenneth Ramsey reveled in watching a colt that steadily climbed the ladder from $35000 maiden claimers reach such heights.

how you see the world, [charles town] [03:32]
ALL MY CLIPS. No place on earth I'd rather be. I don't care if the horses aren't pricey. I don't care if most of them aren't worth more then $10000. Each one is special to me. And each time they race around that little dirt oval, I'm out there running the race with them, every step of the way. :) /end sappy speech Okayyy, so these clips are from July 2 :) I thought they came out decently, and finally got around to editing with them, LOL! And horse that reared up and fell was fine, in case you were wondering. If anyone wants, I'm more then willing to upload raws of these for everyone to use. Just ask!

Inherit the Gold - 2011 Excelsior (G3) [02:04]
Inner track dynamo Inherit the Gold reeled off a fifth consecutive win Saturday afternoon at Aqueduct Racetrack, brilliantly transferring his form to the main track to take the 99th running of the Grade 3, $100000 Excelsior. It was the first graded stakes victory for the 5-year-old son of Gold Token, who patiently stalked front-running Understatement through early fractions of 24.75 and 49.47. Easily overtaking the pacesetter as they turned for home, Inherit the Gold drew off to win by 6 ¼ lengths. Sent off as the 7-5 favorite in the field of five, Inherit the Gold completed 1 1/8 miles in 1:50.34 returned $4.80 to his backers in the Caribbean Day crowd of 6317. "It was a perfect trip," said Jimmy Hooper, who earned his first graded stakes win as a trainer in the Excelsior. "Eddie [Castro] knew he might have to stay a little closer today and he did. It's whenever he decides he wants to make the move. Eddie's done a great job with him." Castro piloted the New York-bred gelding to all four of his inner track victories this winter -- two optional claimers, the Mr. International overnight stakes and the Kings Point -- and has been Inherit the Gold's regular rider since October. "There was only one horse with speed in the race, so I could stay fairly close," Castro said of the Excelsior. "I rode him the same today; I didn't want to change. When I asked him to move, he did. He's getting better. It was a tough race today. There were a lot of nice horses." Now 7-3-2 from 14 ...

Claiming Races - Come Home [[150 subscribers]] [02:31]
I think this will be my 150 subs video cos it's the first video in a while that I even half like...thank you all so much, i never thought i would get even 10 so thank you!! Sorry for the recycled clips but...so anyway, this is supposed to be about claiming races. I know the quote from Dreamer is overused but it is so true. In racing horses come and go and even if you're really attached to a horse you have to content yourself with the fact that somewhere they're still around, even if they're now on the other side of the country. Otherwise you could never survive in this game. You've got to learn to let go. But the problem with claimers and sellers is that while you always know there's a possibility of the horse not coming home, you don't know if they're going to get claimed right until the last minute. That makes the race even more tense to watch. It's happened to me a few times and it's really awful. Fortunately they never got claimed or were always bid back, but it's still not a nice thing. But still, horses come and go all the time getting sold privately etc, so there's always someone to miss. This is what this is about, the people who miss thm most which is the lads that look after them and the people that work with them at home. The quote is absolutely true. It might seem exaggereated, but believe me it is one hundred percent correct. If the money or the circumstances are right, "every racehorse, everywhere in the world, right now is for sale". Ps. If you read this ...
