1994 Jockey Club Gold Cup [12:16]
Holy Bull, resting in his stall in Kentucky, probably scored the greatest victory of his career yesterday when Colonial Affair won the $750000 Jockey Club Gold Cup at Belmont Park and knocked Tabasco Cat out of contention for Horse of the Year. On a day billed as New York's preview of the Breeders' Cup series, Colonial Affair made a power drive from sixth place and outran Devil His Due to the wire by two and a half lengths, giving senior horses a sweep of the top spots. Less than one length back came the European traveler Flag Down, and then it was half a length to Tabasco Cat, winner of the Preakness and Belmont Stakes. And far, far away in last place came Go for Gin, winner of the Kentucky Derby and another beaten candidate for post-season honors. The loss meant that Tabasco Cat had no chance to snatch the championship from Holy Bull, who went home for the year after winning 8 of his 10 races in dramatic fashion. And it meant that whoever wins the Breeders' Cup Classic at Churchill Downs on Nov. 5 also has no chance to catch Holy Bull for the sport's top prize. "Holy Bull is a charismatic horse," said Wayne Lukas, the trainer of Tabasco Cat. "I would like to see him make some more of the classics. But if he's Horse of the Year, I'll stand up at the awards dinner and applaud. "I felt we were in a position where we needed to win today to sway the vote." But Lukas, whose personal and professional fortunes have been rallied this year by Tabasco Cat, still surfaced as a ...

2011 PREAKNESS - SHACKLEFORD!!! [02:13]
Shackleford dueled for the early lead with Flashpoint through a blistering opening quarter-mile in :22.69 but the pace slowed considerably in the second quarter as the duo covered a half-mile in :46.87. That slight breather might have made the difference for Shackleford, who put away Flashpoint on the final turn in the 1 3/16-mile race and spurted clear. Animal Kingdom, who was second to last early under John Velazqeuz, closed with a steady charge in the stretch and cut into Shackleford's lead but could not get past the winner. Velazquez said Animal Kingdom did not break as well as he did in the Derby and did not like having dirt kicked in his face. Shackleford covered the distance in 1:56.27 on a track rated as fast under Jesus Castanon for his first career graded stakes win. He finished second in the Florida Derby (G1) and fourth in the Kentucky Derby in his two previous starts for trainer Dale Romans and owners Mike Lauffer and WD Cubbedge. Shackleford's win ended Animal Kingdom's Triple Crown bid. Affirmed in 1978 is the last three-year-old to sweep the three US classics. Animal Kingdom's trainer, Graham Motion, said he was pleased with the Derby winner's effort. "He ran huge today, it just looked like he needed another sixteenth [of a mile]," Motion said. "Give credit to Dale [Romans] and his horse, [Shackleford] ran a heck of a race." Astrology ran a big race to finish third. Florida Derby winner Dialed In closed willingly for fourth, followed by Dance City.
