1997 Beverly Hills Handicap [01:03]
Following her victory three weeks earlier against softer competition in the Estrapade Stakes, Windsharp kicked away from her five opponents in the stretch to win by 3 1/2 lengths in 2:00 3/5 for the 1 1/4 miles on turf. Different, the 2-1 favorite and winner of the race last year, was a troubled second, nearly two lengths ahead of Donna Viola. Stevens claimed foul against Windsharp and jockey Corey Nakatani for alleged interference approaching the stretch, but the stewards made no change

1999 Suburban Handicap Grade I [03:20]
Behrens, handling the distance, the competition and the 100-degree heat with professional sureness, raced into the upper levels of handicap horses in this country yesterday when he won the 113th running of the Suburban Handicap at Belmont Park by nearly three lengths. It was the fourth straight success for the 5-year-old bay, who now faces the second half of the year with great credentials and great expectations. In his next start, the $600000 Whitney Handicap at Saratoga on Aug. 1, Behrens will face Victory Gallop. Four weeks later, in the $1 million Pacific Classic at Del Mar, he will race Real Quiet. If there are any questions after that, all three horses should answer them in the $4 million Breeders' Cup Classic at Gulfstream Park on Nov. 6. But yesterday, Behrens left nothing unanswered. He was the overwhelming choice to outrun eight rivals on the hottest day of the year before 11364 stifled fans, and he made no mistakes. With Jorge Chavez directing the performance from the saddle, Behrens ran third after half a mile, second after three-quarters and first after one mile. Then, after extending his lead through the homestretch, he crossed the wire 2 3/4 lengths in front of the 41-1 long shot Catienus. Behrens, carrying the high weight of 121 pounds, had run a mile and a quarter in a snappy 2:01 and had staked a strong claim to the front ranks of the nation's senior horses. ''You always worry about the heat; you can't not worry about it,'' said his trainer, H. James ...

1993 Strub Stakes Grade I [02:52]
Siberian Summer paid $34.40 to win Sunday, accounting for the fourth-biggest payoff in Strub history and the largest since Swing Till Dawn, catching the kind of muddy track that he loved, won the 1983 running and paid $78.80. War Heim holds the record with his $98 payoff in 1971. Bertrando, sent off at 3-10 in betting that included 20455 fans at the track, became one of the biggest disappointments in Strub history, a list that includes Damascus, who was 1-5 while losing by a head to Most Host in 1968. Before Sunday, Siberian Summer was best known for his ability to finish second. His 14-race record going into the Strub consisted of three victories--none in a stake--and seven seconds. Even a switch to grass didn't improve his form against the top competition; he was ninth in last year's Del Mar Derby and eighth in the Hollywood Derby. On Thursday, the day before entries were due for the Strub, mcanally had considered skipping the race. "We almost didn't run," the 60-year-old trainer said, "but then I considered who we had to beat. Bertrando really isn't a mile-and-a-quarter horse. Then there was Star Recruit and Major Impact, but after that, the field wasn't really that tough." So mcanally called Siberian Summer's breeder and owner, Mahmoud Fustok, in Florida and they agreed to run. The decision was worth $275000, more than doubling what the gray Siberian Express-Mia Karina colt had earned. Corey Nakatani rode Siberian Summer for the first time, settling the colt into ...
