1994 Mother Goose Stakes - Lakeway [06:10]
Belmont Week came to a record-setting close yesterday when the California filly Lakeway won the Mother Goose Stakes by more than four lengths over Cinnamon Sugar and by 10 lengths over Inside Information, and pranced to the head of the class of 3-year-old fillies. It was one day after the California colt Tabasco Cat won the Belmont Stakes and moved to the head of the class of 3-year-old colts, and Lakeway gave an even more powerful performance. She not only won for the fifth time in six starts but buried the hometown favorite, Inside Information, who had won six of her seven races. And she did it by knocking one and one-fifth seconds off the record for the race in its 38th running. The two favorites ran together stride for stride for more than half a mile, but then Kent Desormeaux nudged his filly, and Lakeway took charge. She collared Inside Information with three-eighths of a mile to go, edged past her turning for home and widened the lead relentlessly down the stretch. As she flashed home, she had 4 1/4 lengths on Cinnamon Sugar, a 27-1 long shot, who in turn had six lengths on Inside Information. They cruised in fast fractions of 1:083/5 for three-quarters of a mile and 1:332/5 for the mile. And Lakeway completed the mile and an eighth in 1:462/5 , shattering the record for the race set in 1978 by Caesar's Wish, but still a full second off the track record for the distance set in 1973 by the incomparable Secretariat. It was also the fifth record set in three days of ...

Folowthemoneytrail Wins at Turfway Park [05:26]
FOLOWTHEMONEYTRAIL settled in hand four wide, moved up to engage the leaders leaving the turn, struck the front entering the stretch and edged clear. BREAK OF SILENCE made a long drive circling six wide, and continued on well to earn the place. GO BRAY BOO attended the pace off of the inside, bid between horses leaving the second turn, garnered a brief lead, weakened during the drive and settled for the show. SAVAGE VOW was close up four between horses, offered a mild bid but lacked the needed late response. BIG PICTURE GUY was unhurried into stride, came seven wide and finished with a belated gain. FIRE ANGEL settled saving ground, angled out leaving the second turn but passed only the tiring ones. MOMMA'S HAPPY bobbled at the start, recovered quickly and was forwardly placed three wide, but came up empty between horses on the second turn and dropped out. TIME TO ENGAGE lagged far back and was never a factor. DRAKE MANOR opened clear to set the pace, was headed nearing the five-sixteenths pole and stopped.
