1998 Woodward Stakes [02:37]
Skip Away raced into thoroughbred history yesterday when he won the 45th Woodward Stakes at Belmont Park against an all-star field. With the victory, his ninth straight, he drew ever closer to the stature and the money record of the great Cigar. Skip Away, the durable gray 5-year-old purchased three years ago for $22000 by the trainer Sonny Hine for his wife, Carolyn, won by a length and three-quarters over Gentlemen, the 6-year-old iron horse from Argentina, with Running Stag third, Free House fourth and Coronado's Quest fifth and last. Coronado's Quest, the only 3-year-old in the field, saw his five-race winning streak end. Jerry Bailey, who won his fourth Woodward Stakes and his third in the last four years, including two aboard Cigar, was asked to rank Skip Away and Cigar. ''It's like having two kids,'' he said. ''Which one do you love most?'' Sonny Hine, clamoring for respect for his horse for months, said: ''He is some horse, the best there is. He is one of the best I've ever seen. He is so brilliant.'' Carolyn Hine said, ''We want him to get the respect he deserves.'' Richard Mandella, the California trainer whose Dare and Go ended Cigar's winning streak at 16 two years ago, led the cheers for his Gentlemen but acknowledged Skip Away's achievement. ''At the top of the stretch, I thought we had a big chance to win this one,'' Mandella said. ''But Skip Away just got away from us. He showed everyone just how much of a tremendous horse he is.'' Shug McGaughey, the ...

1987 Strub Stakes [01:09]
Carl Grinstead, one of the owners of Snow Chief, thought he had won. Trainer Mel Stute, who was standing in an aisle in the box-seat area, said he had a perfect position in line with the wire and thought Snow Chief had lost. Eddie Delahoussaye was riding Ferdinand, the horse who charged to the finish line almost stride for stride with Snow Chief. Unlike Grinstead and Stute, Delahoussaye wasn't wearing glasses, and his view was much closer. But Delahoussaye couldn't be sure who had won. That's how close the 40th running of the Charles H. Strub Stakes was on Sunday at Santa Anita, with 58806 fans just as unsure of the outcome as the principals. Finally, the photo-finish camera showed that Snow Chief had beaten Ferdinand by the smallest of noses, and Charlie Whittingham, the trainer of the runner-up, shoved his hands in his pockets, looked at the ground and walked around just outside the winner's circle. "Just one more jump," Whittingham said wistfully. Whittingham has won the Strub twice, but in three of the last four years he's found himself saying the same thing. In 1985, it was Precisionist over Whittingham's Greinton, by a nose just as short as on Sunday; in 1984, Desert Wine got to the wire a neck in front of Load the Cannons, another runner from Whittingham's barn. Stute should have been the last observer to doubt that Snow Chief had won, because all week long he had convinced himself that his colt was going to dominate the $516750 race. Snow Chief, a victim of a bone ...

Little Talks [Clinic with Portia] [04:21]
So, this was supposed to be uploaded on New Years Day... But, whatever. This is Portia: 16.2 (or 16.3, dunno) Bay Mare OTTB (Off Track Thoroughbred) This are from a clinic with Angelo Telatin at Thunderhead/Rutherford Balanced Equestrian. Portia and I learned SO much and we're getting better every day :D The first jump in the beginning is 2', then 2'6, and then 3' is the highest. Portia is not an easy horse to ride sometimes but she tries so hard and I love her! Yes, I was jumping with my eyes closed, and this is the first time I've EVER jumped 3', the highest I'd jumped her before this was 2'3. **I do not own the song!!** I do, however own all the clips but feel free to use them as long as you send me the link when you're done :) Comment, Rate, Subscribe! But please no crit, I do have a trainer.... ENJOY! :D

No Rain No Rainbow Wins At Turfway Park [04:58]
NO RAIN NO RAINBOW outrun for a half, angled out on the second turn, made a four wide run into the stretch and drew clear late. BREAK OF SILENCE close up while off the inside, challenged three wide after a half, gained a short lead on the second turn and held on gamely to be second best. POLITICAL RACE forwardly placed from the start, made a run at the leaders while four wide on the second turn but gave way in the drive. PROUD WARRIOR within striking distance early along the inside, moved off the rail on the second turn and tired. NINJA CAT set the early pace four wide, moved in to the two path on the second turn and faded in the drive. GO BRAY BOO five wide early, was no factor. PAULISTANO prompted the pace in the three path and stopped.

Champ Kart Onboard 12/31/12 - Providence / Feature Race [05:17]
Onboard footage of the Champ Kart Feature Race from the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Rhode Island. Tonight on New Year's Eve is the 5th Annual Coffee Cup and Race #2 of the Fatheadz Eyewear Indoor Karting Series. After locking into the Feature Race from the Heat Race, I started 15th out of the 26 karts that started. This race was a wreckfest. When the first caution came out, I nearly ran into Tim in the #15 kart. When another caution came out, I nearly ran into DJ in the #60 kart and was able to avoid him and the other karts that were involved in the accident. After the front runners were retiring from mechanical failues or crashes, I found myself in 6th place. I was having an awesome run and was trying to deliver Katie and Magic a great finish to give as a farewell gift since Puppy in my Pocket: Adventures in Pocketville was coming to an end today and was removed from the air by Boomerang. I had Katie and Magic riding aboard with me to keep me calm and try to have fun racing. The great run sadly came to an end on the final restart. With the leaders bunching up to close to one another, the people behind me were literally crushing my kart. When Nick in the #41 kart was behind me, he was pushing my bumper so hard, that my seat was being compressed. When I tried to accelerate the kart, the kart did not go. I had to stop on track, because I thought something broke in my kart. The offical gives me the thumbs up, which meant that nothing was wrong with the kart. I was able to get ...
