Inherit the Gold - 2011 Excelsior (G3) [02:04]
Inner track dynamo Inherit the Gold reeled off a fifth consecutive win Saturday afternoon at Aqueduct Racetrack, brilliantly transferring his form to the main track to take the 99th running of the Grade 3, $100000 Excelsior. It was the first graded stakes victory for the 5-year-old son of Gold Token, who patiently stalked front-running Understatement through early fractions of 24.75 and 49.47. Easily overtaking the pacesetter as they turned for home, Inherit the Gold drew off to win by 6 ¼ lengths. Sent off as the 7-5 favorite in the field of five, Inherit the Gold completed 1 1/8 miles in 1:50.34 returned $4.80 to his backers in the Caribbean Day crowd of 6317. "It was a perfect trip," said Jimmy Hooper, who earned his first graded stakes win as a trainer in the Excelsior. "Eddie [Castro] knew he might have to stay a little closer today and he did. It's whenever he decides he wants to make the move. Eddie's done a great job with him." Castro piloted the New York-bred gelding to all four of his inner track victories this winter -- two optional claimers, the Mr. International overnight stakes and the Kings Point -- and has been Inherit the Gold's regular rider since October. "There was only one horse with speed in the race, so I could stay fairly close," Castro said of the Excelsior. "I rode him the same today; I didn't want to change. When I asked him to move, he did. He's getting better. It was a tough race today. There were a lot of nice horses." Now 7-3-2 from 14 ...

More Than a Reason - 2010 Queens County (G3) [02:22]
More Than a Reason captured the 105th running of the Grade 3 Queens County at Aqueduct Racetrack in late-running fashion Saturday afternoon, posting a last-to-first upset victory in New York's final graded stakes race of the year. Trailing as Seniors Pride led through opening fractions of 24.91 and 50.49, More Than a Reason advanced on the far turn to close willingly through the stretch under Eddie Castro and prevail by a head over Stormy's Majesty, who pressed the pace throughout. The final time for the 1 3/16-mile race was 1:57.69 over Aqueduct's fast inner track. "I just play around with him," said Persaud, who claimed the 5-year-old son of More Than Ready for $15000 at Aqueduct in November 2008. "I baby him. He's my best horse. I don't train him hard, I just run him. That's all he does. He's big hearted, but you have to ride him right. One run, that's it. If you keep him too close to the pace or try to move too early, you get nothing." Persaud, who trained More Than a Reason to a third-place finish in last year's edition of the Queens County, said he had been pointing toward this race, which marked the first victory in a graded stakes for both horse and trainer. Sent off at 19-1, the second-longest shot on the board in the field of six, More Than a Reason returned $40.20 to his backers in the crowd of 5444 and earned $60000 for owner Anthony Calabrese. With a lifetime record of 12-9-11 from 60 starts, More Than a Reason has now earned $477720. Favored Arson Squad ...

Breeders' Cup Mile: Freddy Head [01:29]
by Ed DeRosa Alain and Gerard Wertheimer's homebred Goldikova (Ire) became the first horse to win three Breeders' Cup races with her third consecutive Breeders' Cup Mile (G1) victory on Saturday at Churchill Downs. Goldikova's quest for a Mile three-peat was largely overshadowed at this year's Breeders' Cup by Zenyatta's bid for her third Breeders' Cup win and a chance to cap an unbeaten career with her 20th victory without a defeat in the Breeders' Cup Classic (G1). But Goldikova dazzled on center stage in the Mile with a powerfully rally to victory that cemented her legacy as one of racing's all-time greats. "She's the best [racemare] in the world," Goldikova's jockey, Olivier Peslier said after the race. "Now, it's Zenyatta's turn." Some of the build-up leading up to the Breeders' Cup World Championships dealt with Goldikova's trainer, Freddie Head, saying in October that his mare was more accomplished than Zenyatta, who came up a heart-breaking head short to Blame in the Classic. Goldikova, however, took care of business in the $1818000 TVG Breeders' Cup Mile and she received thunderous applause from the crowd at Churchill Downs. Goldikova had won the Mile in 2008 and '09 both at the Oak Tree meeting at Santa Anita Park. "This is very emotional for me—being the first jockey to win two races [aboard Miesque] and now training this mare to win three times, it's something you can't even dream of," Head said. "It's unreal. She can do anything; she's extraordinary. I don't ...
