Toby's Corner - Resorts World New York Casino Wood Memorial (G1) [02:08]
Toby's Corner rallied from last to storm past a tiring Uncle Mo and outkick Arthur's Tale in the final jumps of Saturday's 87th edition of the Grade 1, $1 million Resorts World New York Casino Wood Memorial at Aqueduct Racetrack. The neck victory was the race's biggest upset since Secretariat finished third to Angle Light by four lengths in 1973. Ridden by Eddie Castro, Toby's Corner, a 3-year-old son of 2005 Wood winner Bellamy Road, stayed on the rail as 1-10 favorite Uncle Mo led the field through an opening half-mile in 47.98, three-quarters in 1:12.28 and a mile in 1:37.26 while under pressure from a trio of longshots. Advancing steadily after having been shuffled back to last at the half-mile pole, Toby's Corner kicked into gear once tipped to the outside in the stretch. As Uncle Mo began to tire, Toby's Corner moved up along with Arthur's Tale and surged to the front in the final yards to hit the wire in 1:49.93 for the 1 1/8 miles. Uncle Mo, the 2010 Eclipse winner as the nation's Top 2-Year-Old Male and the early favorite for the Kentucky Derby, finished third, another length back, as he suffered his first loss in five starts. "I can't say I'm shocked but I'm disappointed," said Todd Pletcher, who trains Uncle Mo for Mike Repole. "I was a little concerned turning for home at the three-sixteenths pole when he didn't really kick clear. I thought then that we were going to be in for a fight. You could see the last 50-60 yards he was tired." "He came a little flat ...

JP's Gusto - 2010 Del Mar Futurity [03:06]
DEL MAR, Calif. -- Trying to beat JP's Gusto, trainer Jerry Hollendorfer has found out, is difficult with just one bullet. So when the Grade 1, $250000 Del Mar Futurity is run on Wednesday's closing-day card here, Hollendorfer will put a couple of rounds in the chamber, hoping either Indian Winter or Western Mood can knock off the pro-tem leader of the 2-year-old division in California. It will not be easy. JP's Gusto heads into the Futurity riding a three-race winning streak, including a victory one month ago in the 6 1/2-furlong Best Pal Stakes, Del Mar's major prep for the Futurity. But JP's Gusto will be trying to stretch his speed to seven furlongs, which, with his sprint-based pedigree, might be the outer limits of his optimum range. Western Mood was a distant third in the Best Pal after losing by just a neck to JP's Gusto in the Hollywood Juvenile Championship. The biggest threat from Hollendorfer's barn just might be Indian Winter, an Indian Charlie colt who, when closing sharply to win his debut going six furlongs Aug. 21, acted like he would appreciate more distance. "The thing I liked about his race is that he was down inside, taking a lot of stuff flying at him, and it didn't bother him at all," Hollendorfer said. "He acted like an older horse. He won by a half-length, but I think he was best by a lot more than that." Hollendorfer's biggest concern is that he is coming back in just 18 days. But the lure of a Grade 1 race, versus sitting on the sidelines until ...

1998 Iselin Handicap Grade I [06:11]
Weight has long been the great equalizer in horse racing, and today at Monmouth Park, it almost humbled Skip Away. Almost. Spotting his six modest rivals from 16 to 20 pounds as he carried top weight of 131 pounds, Skip Away was caught in midstretch by Stormin Fever but rallied through the final sixteenth to win the $500000 Iselin Handicap by a nose, his eighth straight victory. The crowd of 19107 gasped in disbelief as Stormin Fever, a 10-1 shot whose only victories this year have been in allowance races, moved up rapidly on the far turn and took dead aim at the prohibitive favorite at the head of the stretch. Under vigorous urging from Jose Santos, Stormin Fever -- who carried 113 pounds -- poked a nose in front in the deep stretch, but Skip Away came back on the inside in the final strides and actually was pulling off at the wire. ''It probably scared a lot of people more than me,'' said Jerry Bailey, the jockey, who sent Skip Away to the lead after a half-mile. ''He was in a neutral mode, and when the other horse came to him, I could feel his motor start running again. With the weight, it took him a few strides to get going again.'' The performance surprised Santos. ''At the eighth pole, I thought I was home free,'' the jockey said. ''Skip Away had to really show class today to come back and beat me.'' Sonny Hine, Skip Away's trainer, said: ''Skippy never gives up. I wasn't worried when that other horse came up to him.'' If Hine had a concern, it was over another ...
