Brigadier Gerard- The 1971 2000 Guineas Stakes (Newmarket) [02:01]
Brigadier Gerard (1968--1989) was one of the best and most popular British Thoroughbred race horses of the 20th century winning 17 of his 18 races, which included twelve races now ranked at Group One level. In one of the most eagerly anticipated races ever seen at the 1972 2000 Guineas Stakes, Brigadier Gerard won in devastating fashion by three lengths from Mill Reef and My Swallow. The horse was ridden by Joe Mercer and trained by Dick Hern . Brigadier Gerard was owned by Jean Hislop and the horses time on the day was 1;39.20

Winter Memories - 2011 Sands Point (G2) [01:57]
Winter Memories lived up to her role as the 3-5 favorite Monday afternoon at Belmont Park, sweeping wide on the turn and rolling to an easy three-length victory over Celestial Kitten in the 17th running of the Grade 2, $150000 Sands Point. Ridden by Jose Lezcano, Winter Memories eagerly went after Arch Support as she and Mystical Star led the field of six 3-year-old fillies through a dawdling opening quarter in 26.11. Racing in third as the half-mile went in 51.41, Winter Memories began moving up on the far turn and spurted clear by three lengths when given her cue once into the stretch. Hand-ridden to the wire, the roan daughter of El Prado completed the 1 1/16 miles in 1:42.61 over the firm inner turf course.

Frankel - Newmarket (The Rowley Mile) - The Dewhurst Stakes (Group 1) 7f (2yo) [04:31]
The coming together of the unbeaten Frankel, Dream Ahead and Saamidd made this one of the most eagerly awaited 2yo races for a long time, and though the battle between the 3 failed to materialize, the last 2 running well below expectations, it still took a high-class effort from Frankel to prevail, bettered only by New Approach in this race in recent times, and the form is underpinned by an excellent timefigure. FRANKEL completed the perfect season, beating everything put in front of him so far, looking every inch a champion and achieving the ratings--including timefigures--to match, even though this wasn't quite the anticipated acid test with Dream Ahead and Saamidd disappointing; all the same, it didn't go smoothly for Frankel as a bump departing the stall left him last and lit up, not settling at all, and that he still cruised through before asserting under a hand ride says it all about his exceptional talent, as well as his standing potential, unextended all along and physically the type to make an even better 3-yo; though it's a long way off, the Guineas is at his mercy, reportedly set for a spring prep run, understandable if only to get the freshness out of him, as his natural exuberance (always wears crossed noseband) is the only apparent chink in his armour so far, not that it held him back here, nor would it in the Guineas, but getting him to stretch to the Derby trip may be another matter; Timeform's highest-rated 2-yo in Europe since Xaar in 1997, Frankel has ...

Caixa Eletronica - The Westchester (G3) [01:52]
Caixa Eletronica took advantage of sizzling early fractions as he rallied from just off the pace and onto a three-length victory over Convocation in a 10-1 upset of Saturday's Grade 3, $100000 Westchester, the opening weekend feature at Belmont Park. Ridden by Cornelio Velasquez, the 6-year-old son of Arromanches broke sharply, but then settled behind Christmas for Liam and 4-5 favorite Haynesfield as they rocketed through an opening quarter-mile in 22.34 and a half in 44.72. Rounding the turn, Caixa Eletronica moved up eagerly past the favorite to collar Christmas for Liam, taking command in midstretch and going on to hit the wire in 1:34.26 for the mile.
