Blind Luck's Style Fits for Vanity [05:08]
Once again the winner of the $250000 Vanity Handicap (Grade I) won in last-to-first fashion, as Blind Luck swung wide to pass all five rivals through the stretch as the 9-to-5 second choice and edged 7-to-5 favorite Switch by half a length at the wire. Blind Luck's win was reminiscent of the past three editions of the Vanity, when Zenyatta stormed down the center of the track through the lane to victory after being dead last down the back stretch. "I wasn't happy, but I didn't have much ground to make up and I couldn't get her tucked in the way I wanted to," said jockey Garrett Gomez of the slow early pace that saw the first half mile run in 50.1. "She loves to run in the lane and she has a heck of a turn of foot." The final time of 1:50.4 was the slowest Vanity ever in its 60th running, resulting in a bunched field at the finish with just three lengths separating all six runners. "I think Garrett was a little bit closer today than he ordinarily would have been and the only thing I said to him before the race was to try to watch the pace and see what happens," said trainer Jerry Hollendorfer. "I think Bob (Baffert) did a great job trying to slow the pace down with his speed filly (American Story)." Despite setting the slow pace, American Story faded to last behind Miss Match, St Trinians and She's Cheeky. Last year's three-year-old champion has now won 11-of-20 career starts and pushed her earnings over $2.8 million. This was her first race off of a dirt surface in over a ...

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 ...
