1998 Kentucky Derby: Full ABC Broadcast [01:02:19]
For the second year in a row, and nearly the third, a horse trained by Bob Baffert won the Kentucky Derby as Real Quiet drew clear in the homestretch of Churchill Downs today to win America's premier horse race by half a length over Victory Gallop. For good measure, Baffert took third place with his previously undefeated Indian Charlie. Baffert's two colts also dominated the Santa Anita Derby four weeks ago when Indian Charlie finished first for his fourth straight victory and Real Quiet ran second. This time, they were separated by Victory Gallop, who won the Arkansas Derby three weeks ago over Favorite Trick, the 1997 Horse of the Year, who ran eighth today. But they nonetheless gave Baffert, the exuberant trainer from California, the landmark day of his career before a crowd of 143215, the third largest in the Derby's 124 years. One year ago, Baffert won the Derby with Silver Charm, who went on to win the Preakness before losing the Triple Crown by half a length to Touch Gold in the Belmont Stakes. Two years ago, Baffert came within the length of Grindstone's nose of winning the Derby with Cavonnier, which means he nearly swept the race three years in a row, something that no trainer has accomplished. Five other trainers have won the Derby in successive years, most recently D. Wayne Lukas with Thunder Gulch in 1995 and Grindstone in 1996. ''Hello, again,'' Baffert said hoarsely after the race. ''I don't think I'll ever feel the excitement I did over Silver Charm. But ...

1979 Belmont Stakes: CBS Broadcast [18:03]
History and the long, demanding stretch at Belmont Park had caught up with Spectacular Bid. With a short distance remaining in the Belmont Stakes last Saturday, he was leading, seemingly drawing away from his seven rivals. He was four lengths in front of 12-to-1 shot General Assembly and looking just as strong as he had while rattling off victories in 12 consecutive stakes races. Just 660 yards to go to the third Triple Crown in three years. But then Spectacular Bid began to behave like a very fat man trying to run up a very steep hill. In the stretch curve he drifted out from the rail. His lead diminished. He was having trouble getting air into his lungs, and his legs seemed to desert him. With a furlong to go, he was a beaten horse, seconds away from joining the company of Pensive, Tim Tam, Carry Back, Northern Dancer, Kauai King, Forward Pass, Majestic Prince and Canonero II—the band of Derby and Preakness winners that came a cropper at Belmont. The winner, Coastal, was one of those lightly raced colts that periodically come out of old-line barns to waste Belmont pretenders. The steady Golden Act, spear-carrier-in-chief in the classic races, was second. Bid, who had been described by his trainer, Bud Delp, as the greatest horse ever to look through a bridle, was looking at the nearly four lengths of track between his nose and Coastal's as he finished third. Did Bid's young jockey, Ron Franklin, ride the horse badly? Some of the jocks in the race and those watching from ...

1989 Preakness Stakes: Full ABC Broadcast [01:02:48]
Sunday Silence, who raised more questions than he answered when he beat Easy Goer by two and a half lengths in the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago, proved himself a worthy Triple Crown contender today by winning the 114th and closest Preakness Stakes ever at Pimlico Race Course. The blackish colt from California raced head and head with Easy Goer for the length of the stretch before regaining the lead in the final yards to win by a long nose. The last time a Preakness was decided in a photo finish was when Affirmed held off Alydar by a neck in 1978. Now Sunday Silence is one victory away from becoming racing's first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed, and his rivalry with Easy Goer, a son of Alydar, is the tightest Triple Crown battle since then. The two colts will hook up again in the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park on June 10, where victory would bring Sunday Silence's owners a total of $5 million in purses and bonuses for the series. The winner had to survive a claim of foul from Pat Day, Easy Goer's rider, who alleged interference by Pat Valenzuela and Sunday Silence through their stretch duel. After reviewing the films for seven minutes, the stewards let the order of finish stand. Another unrelated foul claim, by the rider of Dansil, who was fourth, against Rock Point, who was third, was also disallowed. The bettors in a record Pimlico crowd of 90145, unconvinced by Sunday Silence's weaving Derby finish and the slow final time of that race, made Easy Goer the 3-to-5 ...
