Boys At Tosconova - 2010 Hopeful Stakes (G1) [03:42]
SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY -- When Boys At Tosconova came into the stretch six lengths clear of his rivals in a July 2 maiden race at Belmont Park, trainer Richard Dutrow Jr. had a flashback. "It was like when we watched Big Brown run for the first time for us," said Dutrow, referring to the horse that won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness for him in 2008. "We were scared to death to run him that day, but when he turned for home our whole lives changed." Speaking of Boys At Tosconova, Dutrow said: "The other day with him, when he turned for home you knew you had a really, really exciting 2-year-old." That's why Dutrow is really, really excited to run Boys At Tosconova in Monday's Grade 1, $250000 Hopeful Stakes, the closing-day feature on an 11-race card at Saratoga. The Hopeful will be Boys At Tosconova's first race since his maiden win, but that was by design. Dutrow wanted to give the horse plenty of time between starts. Boys At Tosconova has trained extremely well in Saratoga for Dutrow, who has not stopped talking about this colt for the 6 1/2 weeks he's been here. "I get 30 to 40 babies a year," Dutrow said. "I haven't had one like him." Dutrow said that every rider who gets on Boys At Tosconova in the morning comes away in awe of the colt, who outworked the 3-year-old Trickmeister in an Aug. 17 move. That includes Ramon Dominguez, who was aboard for the colt's 12-length maiden win in his first start for Dutrow after being purchased privately by Mac and Samantha Siegel's ...

2009 Belmont Stakes - Summer Bird [03:05]
A year ago jockey Kent Desormeaux lost a bid for a Triple Crown when he had to pull up heavy favorite Big Brown. On June 6 in the Belmont Stakes (gr. I), he got his elusive Belmont win when he guided Summer Bird to an upset win in the third leg of the Triple Crown. All eyes were on the other bird in the field, Mine That Bird, but he came up short, finishing third as Dunkirk got second. Both Summer Bird and Mine That Bird are sons of Birdstone , who won the Belmont in 2004. Some might criticize jockey Calvin Borel for moving too soon in the 12-furlong race, but Borel said following the race that though he might have done so, "we just got outrun today." Borel would have become the first jockey to win the three Triple Crown races on different horses. He won the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) on Mine That Bird and the BlackBerry Preakness Stakes (gr. I) on Rachel Alexandra. Dunkirk went to the lead out of the gate, followed by Charitable Man, Miners Escape and Mr. Hot Stuff. Both Summer Bird and Mine That Bird were in the back of the 10-horse field as they went a quarter in :23.41. John Velazquez still had Dunkirk on the lead while Miners Escape took second as they went the first half-mile in :47.13 and six furlongs in 1:12.43. Mine That Bird was in last, but only about seven lengths from the lead. Meanwhile, Desormeaux had the spot that Borel normally has, sitting on the rail as the field approached the turn for home and the lengthy stretch run at Belmont ...
