1998 Belmont Stakes - Victory Gallop : Full ABC Broadcast [01:09:42]
The Triple Crown of horse racing slipped away from Real Quiet in the final strides of the Belmont Stakes yesterday, when he was run down and beaten by a nose by Victory Gallop, the horse who chased him home in both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. They staged a roaring duel down the homestretch on a brilliantly sunny and cool afternoon before 80162 fans at Belmont Park, the second-largest crowd to see the race in its 130 runnings. And they saw a Belmont Stakes of show-stopping drama, the closest in the 20 years since Affirmed nipped Alydar by a head to become the 11th horse to win the Triple Crown. No horse has completed a sweep since then. Real Quiet became the 14th to lose it in the final race in the series, and lost by the narrowest margin among those 14. Afterward, the stewards suggested that he might have been disqualified if he had won the race because he brushed Victory Gallop twice in the homestretch. For the second year in a row, the trainer Bob Baffert was foiled on the threshold of completing a Triple Crown. He was thwarted last year when Silver Charm lost the Belmont to Touch Gold by three-quarters of a length. He was foiled again this year when Real Quiet was nipped by Victory Gallop. And in one of those twists of fortune, Silver Charm's losing jockey, Gary Stevens, became the winning jockey this year on Victory Gallop. ''Being beat at the finish line, it hurts a lot,'' said Kent Desormeaux, who rode Real Quiet in the Derby, the Preakness and the Belmont ...

Hansen and other Derby horses on the turn before Kentucky Derby 5/5/2012 [01:57]
Hansen fidgets and is a handful for jockey Ramon Dominguez; the rest of the field passes him on the second turn during their warmups for the Kentucky Derby (5/5/2012, Churchill Downs, Louisville, KY). Some of the other horses/jockeys in this film are Union Rags (Julien Leparoux), Bodemeister (Mike Smith), Dullahan (Kent Desormeaux), Take Charge Indy (Calvin Borel), Went the Day Well (John Velazquez), and others. This video was shot from the Churchill track kitchen window, therefore not that clear. The voices are people in there watching the race. A nice vantage point, and air conditioned, too.

Summer Bird - 2009 Belmont Stakes [02:55]
Redemption came from off the pace Saturday afternoon, on a day when speed ruled and youth was served. Hall of Fame jockey Kent Desormeaux, after six failed tries that included the toughest beat in history with Real Quiet in 1998 and last years aborted Triple Crown attempt with Big Brown, capped a four-win day with his first Belmont Stakes victory aboard Drs. Kalarikkal and Vilasini Devi Jayaramans 11-1 longshot Summer Bird before a crowd of 52861 at Belmont Park. Summer Bird paid $25.80 to win. I left the house this morning with a will to win this race, because it means beauty, class and elegance, Desormeaux said after Summer Bird brought him through the middle of the lane for a 2 ¾-length victory over Dunkirk in the 141st running of the 1½-mile Test of the Champion the longest and oldest leg of racings Triple Crown for three-year-olds. Mine That Bird, the 50-1 Kentucky Derby winner, Preakness runner-up and Belmont Stakes post-time favorite, was third, followed by Charitable Man, Luv Gov, Flying Private, Brave Victory, Mr. Hot Stuff, Chocolate Candy and Miners Escape.
