Turbulent Descent - 2012 Ballerina (G1) [01:39]
Odds-on favorite Turbulent Descent earned her fourth career Grade 1 victory in the first start for her new connections, taking over at the top of the stretch and going on to a 1 ¼-length win over Derwin's Star in Friday's $500000 Ballerina at Saratoga Race Course. Purchased privately by Michael Tabor, Mrs. John Magnier and Derrick Smith this summer and sent to trainer Todd Pletcher, the 4-year-old Congrats filly was making her second start of 2012 and first since taking the Desert Stormer Handicap on June 17 at Betfair Hollywood Park. Away from the gate alertly, Turbulent Descent raced three-wide alongside Island Bound and Nicole H as All Due Respect led through an opening quarter-mile in 23.02 seconds, with the half going in 45.33. Moving up with Nicole H on the turn, Turbulent Descent quickly assumed command straightening for home and was never threatened as she galloped under the wire in 1:22.13 for the seven furlongs.

The Levade - Henry preforms the Levade and rears on command [03:39]
Henry rearing on command on the ground, with a rider and preforming the Levade. PLEASE READ BELOW to see how I trained him to do this. The clips and some of the pics are older. I will post more recent stuff when I can. ~~~ I started on the lunge line with him, I noticed if I had him face me and shook the whip at his legs he would jump up a bit and take off. I used this to my advantage by stopping him if he ran and praising him for the upward jump. I then combined that with the word UP he caught on right away the first time we worked on it. He learned to do a small rear in about a weeks time. I used a whip to signal him and the motion of my body towards him and with my arms up. Soon he would preform for both the word and the motion. He went higher as we kept practicing. I also would tap him on the legs occasionally with the whip if he was not going as high as before. If I would swing the whip at him the same way with out taping him he would also get the hint to go higher. ~~~ To get him to do it while ridden I took the whip and moved it up in the air near his head where he could see it and kept the word UP with it. He figured this out in 1 day as well. After that it was just a lot of practice to make it better. Now I can signal him with the word, the whip, or the motion of my arms all while on his back. ~~~ The Levade I did not train him for this in the traditional way. I took his rearing and asked him for collection and a head set while giving the command to rear. I did ...

Clear Attempt - 2012 Poker S. (G3) [02:10]
Clear Attempt rewarded his connections for their confidence by springing an 8-1 upset in the Grade 3 Poker on Wednesday at Belmont, giving Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott and owners Martin and Pam Wygod their second straight victory in the one-mile turf race. Even though Clear Attempt was eligible for the second allowance condition, Mott and the Wygods, who won the 2011 Poker with Courageous Cat, decided to enter the regally bred 4-year-old in the $150000 Poker. The colt handled the rise in class with aplomb, tracking pacesetter Yield Bogey behind fractions of 48.12 and 1:11.22, wresting command in midstretch, and shrugging off a challenge from even-money favorite Compliance Officer to win by 1 ¾ lengths. Yield Bogey finished third, an additional half-length behind Compliance Officer.

Mystical Star - 2012 New York S. (G2) [02:24]
Mystical Star atoned for her previous misbehavior in the starting gate by breaking in a timely manner and turning back Aruna's stretch run to win Belmont Park's Grade 2, $200000 New York for turf fillies and mares on Saturday. In her previous race, Belmont's Grade 2 Sheepshead Bay on May 26, Mystical Star found herself 19 lengths behind at the first call after beating the gate, rearing up, and veering inward. She closed resolutely to be third under the finish line before being disqualified and placed last of eight for her premature start. This time, Mystical Star was away in second as she tracked long shot pacesetter The Underling for a half-mile before assuming command along the backstretch while receiving pressure from Hit It Rich. Set down as the field turned for home, Mystical Star kicked away from Hit It Rich, then gave Sheepshead Bay winner Aruna the cold shoulder to register a one-length victory. Mystical Star, a 4-year-old who went off as the 9-2 fourth choice, paid $11.80 for a $2 win wager and completed 1 ¼ miles over the firm inner turf course in 2:00.17.
