New York Watch: Fort Hughes [01:19]
It had been nearly 13 months since trainer Kiaran McLaughlin had sent out a debut winner on the dirt, but Fort Hughes' impressive score on Sunday at Belmont Park made it worth the wait. With the victory, Fort Hughes joins the New York watch, which profiles up-and-comers that have recently cleared the maiden ranks at Aqueduct, Belmont Park, and Saratoga. His page is located at. Fort Hughes, a Darley Stable homebred, quickly seized the lead from post 1 and was pressed by Rift through fractions of 22.34 and 45.24. Jockey Alex Solis flashed the whip at Fort Hughes in the stretch, and that's all the encouragement the 7-1 shot needed to pull away to a 5 ½-length victory. The final time for 5 ½ furlongs was 1:02.98, 0.72 seconds off the track record set by Mike's Classic, a 5-year-old, in 2004. While Darley had high expectations for Fort Hughes from the beginning, McLaughlin admitted he didn't expect such a strong performance from the chestnut colt. "He didn't show brilliant speed in the morning and we didn't love him because he hadn't worked lights out," said McLaughlin. "We train a lot of them on the Greentree Polytrack and it can be hard to get a reading on them first time out. We are happy and surprised that he ran so well. I mean, that was a serious race! I don't know what we do from here, but we are happy he won so impressively." Fort Hughes becomes the 11th winner for his freshman sire Henny Hughes, whom McLaughlin trained for Sheikh Rashid bin Mohammed al Maktoum's ...

New York Watch: Ruthenia [02:01]
Ruthenia has a high bar to clear if she wants to duplicate the success achieved by her full-sister, but an impressive debut at Belmont Park is a pretty good start. Despite her pedigree, the daughter of Pulpit was dismissed at 20-1 on Monday in a one-mile event on Belmont's Widener turf course, and the full-sister to the 2005 Grade 1 Del Mar Oaks winner Rutherienne made her doubters pay by drawing off under Alan Garcia's hand encouragement to win by 3 ½ lengths. Ruthenia, who covered the distance in 1:37.40 and ran the final quarter mile in a snappy 23.34 seconds, becomes the latest horse to join the New York Watch, which profiles up-and-comers that have recently cleared the maiden ranks at Aqueduct, Belmont Park, and Saratoga. "There was no reason for her to have been a long price," trainer Christophe Clement said of Ruthenia, who races for her breeder, Virginia Kraft Payson. "Good for the guys who picked her! She had trained well and had shown a good turn of foot in the morning. Even though she is smaller, she moved well." Clement and Payson were also the team behind Rutherienne, who won 10 stakes in her career, including the Sugar Plum Time, Grade 3 Sands Point, Grade 3 Lake George, and Grade 3 Noble Damsel Handicap in New York. Off the board just four times in 20 starts, Rutherienne earned nearly $1.3 million. "Rutherienne was also small," said Clement when asked to compare Ruthenia to her older sister. "She was sometimes difficult to train, as some of the Pulpits are ...

Quality Road - 2010 Woodward Stakes (G1) [02:13]
Quality Road returned to the winner's circle Saturday afternoon at Saratoga Race Course with an emphatic 4 ¾-length victory over Mythical Power in the 57th running of the $750000 Woodward, his third Grade 1 win of the year. Rebounding from his narrow loss to Blame at Saratoga four weeks ago, the 4-year-old Elusive Quality colt broke sharply and was quickly maneuvered to the outside of longshot Arcodoro, who set opening fractions of 24.06 and 47.76. With three furlongs to go, jockey John Velazquez sent Quality Road up into the lead, and he was never threatened as he rolled through the stretch under mild encouragement to hit the wire in 1:50.00 for the 1 1/8 miles. "He was much, much better than last time," said Velazquez of Quality Road, who this year won the Grade 3 Hal's Hope, the Grade 1 Donn Handicap and the Grade 1 Met Mile before being stunned by Blame at the wire in the Grade 1 Whitney. "In the Whitney, I was struggling to get him going. Today, he was much more willing, and much more on the bridle."

1998 Dubai World Cup - Silver Charm -vs- Swain [02:07]
In a dramatic finish, the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Silver Charm nosed out Swain of Dubai to win the $4 million Dubai World Cup yesterday and double his career earnings. Ridden by the Hall of Famer Gary Stevens, the 4-year-old earned the $2.4 million first prize for his owners, Bob and Beverly Lewis, with a courageous rally. Silver Charm's previous earnings had totaled $2.2 million. Silver Charm, the prohibitive favorite, first repulsed strong challenges from Loup Sauvage of France and Malek, the surprise winner of the Santa Anita Handicap. Then, Swain came up and briefly grabbed the lead in the stretch. As the two pounded toward the finish line, Silver Charm fought back and barely edged in front. I knew it was going to be a competitive race, said Stevens, who rode Silver Charm shortly after guiding Annus Mirablis of Dubai to victory in the $500000 Dubai Duty Free race. He's the greatest horse I've ridden. I knew I had a great chance, but I knew they weren't going to give it away, Bob Baffert, Silver Charm's trainer, said. Silver Charm broke second from the gate and stayed behind another horse from the United States, Behrens, until the top of the stretch. He then took the lead, only to be challenged by Loup Sauvage and Malek. After putting them away, he faced the challenge of the hard-charging Swain. But Silver Charm prevailed in 2 minutes 9 2/5 seconds for the mile and a quarter. Loup Sauvage finished third, with Malek fourth. Race video donated by Jeff Mende..
