"Wow! What A Filly!" - Mossflower - 1998 Hempstead Handicap [04:01]
Her name is Mossflower, she is a 4-year-old daughter of the Triple Crown champion Affirmed, and she streaked across the horizon at Belmont Park yesterday like a shooting star. Mossflower stayed undefeated by winning her sixth straight race in the sort of performance that grows with time. She outran five of the finest fillies in the land by 12 lengths and more, closed with a furious rush to break the record for the Hempstead Handicap and came within two-fifths of a second of matching the track record for a mile and one-sixteenth. And she did it all in the first stakes race she ever ran. The true measure of her success might be judged by the caliber of the fillies she outran, in this order: Glitter Woman, who has finished in the money in 15 of her 16 starts; Colonial Minstrel, who had a five-race winning streak; Ajina, last year's 3-year-old champion filly; Dixie Flag, a speed horse who had won three of her last four, and Royal Indy, winner of the Gazelle last summer at Belmont. After half a mile, Mossflower was running dead last in this all-star field, and she was still fourth after three-quarters of a mile. Then they turned into the homestretch, and Robbie Davis called for closing speed. In a flash, Mossflower blew past Dixie Flag and Glitter Woman, shot from fourth place to first, widened her lead to two lengths in the stretch and widened it to major daylight as they neared the wire. She closed her breathtaking performance 12 lengths in front of Glitter Woman, who nosed ...

Conan Ori, Kid Kart Racer, heat 1, NFKC Fall Race 1 9/10/11 (Night Race) [11:59]
This is the first heat of the race meeting; the light on the horizon isn't completely gone but it's getting pretty dark, though it's (thankfully) not as dark as it appears in the video. While most of the time video enhances light, I'm pretty sure I have the Contour HD camera on Conan's helmet set to "full daylight" or something like that. In any event, Conan adjusted by... driving faster oddly enough, though still not as fast as Gabriel, the kid he's racing with. Hey, but he's only 4 years old! :-) This was shot at the Jax 103rd St. Race Complex on 9/10/11 for the first round of the NFKC Fall Race Series.

1994 Travers Stakes - Holy Bull [02:11]
The Bull outran the Cat and the rabbit and everybody else today when he won the 125th Travers Stakes by a neck over Concern and took his longest strides on the road to the championship of racing's 3-year-old division. It was a smashing performance by Holy Bull, who withstood a furious closing rush by Concern, the winner of the Arkansas Derby, and won for the 11th time in 13 starts. And then it was 17 lengths of daylight back to Tabasco Cat, the winner of the Preakness and Belmont and the archrival to Holy Bull for the season's honors. "He did it the hard way," said Jimmy Croll, who inherited Holy Bull one year ago and now owns and trains him. "It showed he's all heart." Then he aimed at the skeptics who had insinuated that his Bull was a speed horse miscast as a superstar, and said: "They thought he didn't have the breeding to go a mile and a quarter. They said he couldn't go around two turns. They thought he could win only on the lead. They had a rabbit up front and a closing horse chasing him at the end of a mile and a quarter. Well, he did what he had to do. He answered all the questions." He also answered the question posed this week by D. Wayne Lukas, the trainer of Tabasco Cat, who said: "Look at Holy Bull's record under a microscope. Who was second when he won the Dwyer? Nobody can tell you." Maybe not, but Croll could tell you who ran third behind Holy Bull today, and he said dryly, "Wayne better get a new microscope." This was an adventure for Holy Bull, the ...

Pedalite Battery Free Equestrian Safety Products [01:32]
Pedalites lighting products, Anklelite/Armlite,Baglite and the Baglite Light harness are designed to improve equestrian safety and help eliminate accidents by ensuring equestrians are seen clearly in a yard, by other riders and by motorists, any time day or night and from up to 1km away. The products have the unusual ability of being more visible the further away from them you are! For years horse riders have relied on passive safety products, such as fluorescent and bright coloured clothing, to be seen. This kind of reflective clothing (passive safety) requires someone or something else to shine a light onto it to work properly by reflecting the light back to the source. Lighting, on the other hand, is active safety as it will always be seen whatever the conditions and actions of others and is the perfect complement to passive safety. Equestrians are beginning to realise the need for lighting even during daylight hours, not just at dawn or dusk. Riding under trees, bridges or through the shadows of stable/buildings or clouds changes how well horse and rider are seen. The lens on these Pedalite products make the lights appear brighter the further away you are in daylight, shadow and darkness. There are lights to "see-by" and then there are "see-me" lights which are lights to be "seen-by". Pedalite lights are "see-me" lights that help ensure users are "seen-by" others from both short and long distances, for example, at dawn or dusk the lights can be seen from up to 1km away.
