1979 Belmont Stakes: CBS Broadcast [18:03]
History and the long, demanding stretch at Belmont Park had caught up with Spectacular Bid. With a short distance remaining in the Belmont Stakes last Saturday, he was leading, seemingly drawing away from his seven rivals. He was four lengths in front of 12-to-1 shot General Assembly and looking just as strong as he had while rattling off victories in 12 consecutive stakes races. Just 660 yards to go to the third Triple Crown in three years. But then Spectacular Bid began to behave like a very fat man trying to run up a very steep hill. In the stretch curve he drifted out from the rail. His lead diminished. He was having trouble getting air into his lungs, and his legs seemed to desert him. With a furlong to go, he was a beaten horse, seconds away from joining the company of Pensive, Tim Tam, Carry Back, Northern Dancer, Kauai King, Forward Pass, Majestic Prince and Canonero II—the band of Derby and Preakness winners that came a cropper at Belmont. The winner, Coastal, was one of those lightly raced colts that periodically come out of old-line barns to waste Belmont pretenders. The steady Golden Act, spear-carrier-in-chief in the classic races, was second. Bid, who had been described by his trainer, Bud Delp, as the greatest horse ever to look through a bridle, was looking at the nearly four lengths of track between his nose and Coastal's as he finished third. Did Bid's young jockey, Ron Franklin, ride the horse badly? Some of the jocks in the race and those watching from ...

1996 Goodwood Breeders' Cup Handicap [03:22]
Alphabet Soup was disqualified in one of the more controversial calls in recent memory, making Savinio the winner of the $303300 Goodwood Breeders' Cup Handicap at Santa Anita After a lengthy delay, Oak Tree stewards Ingrid Fermin, Dennis Nevin and Tom Ward ruled Alphabet Soup, the 4-5 favorite who finished a length in front of Savinio, interfered with Savinio and Dare And Go passing the wire the first time in the 1 1/8-mile race. To the sound of some of the loudest boos heard at a local track in years and to the displeasure of jockey Chris McCarron and trainer David Hofmans, the 5-year-old roan was disqualified and placed third behind Savinio and Dare And Go, who was making his first start since upsetting Cigar in the Pacific Classic almost two months earlier. While watching a head-on shot of the incident, Ward explained the stewards' position. "The three horse [Powerful Punch, who finished last in the field of four], bobbles at the break, drops out of and isn't a factor," said Ward. "[Alphabet Soup] angles toward the rail and everybody has plenty of room now. "There's continued pressure, just a gradual drift inside. You can take a look at these tractor marks [a tractor pulls the starting gate into position] and see where he started. "Now, [Alex] Solis [on Dare And Go] has got to make a decision, the turn is coming up and he's got to get back out of there. When he does, his horse gets a little rank with him and he ends up breaking stride and losing position. "You couldn ...

New York Watch: Noble Tune [02:00]
Trainer Chad Brown initially thought Noble Tune was destined for the dirt before the colt posted a pair of "exceptional" breezes on the Oklahoma turf course, and on Monday the great-grandson of Serena's Song made it clear that he prefers the grass by unleashing a strong turn of foot to take his debut by 3 ½-lengths. Noble Tune raced behind cover in sixth along the inside before ranging up between horses on the final turn, finding a wide opening turning for home when the pacesetter drifted outwards, and blowing away his opponents once set down by Ramon Dominguez. "After seeing his turf works, I wasn't expecting him to run that well, but I was expecting him to run well," said Brown. Off as the 5-2 favorite, Noble Tune paid $7.30 and completed 1 1/16 miles on the Mellon turf course in 1:43.08.
