Indianapolis 500 pays tribute to Dan Wheldon (5-27-2012) [01:14]
The start of Sunday's 96th Indianapolis 500 was preceded by an emotional tribute to last year's winner Dan Wheldon, who was killed in a horrific crash later in the season. The crowd, estimated at almost a quarter of million, paused in silence to remember the popular British driver, whose death in the season-ending race at Las Vegas continues to cast a pall over the sport. The car he drive to victory in last year's race was taken on a lap of the sprawling 2.5 mile track by team owner Bryan Herta. "There are a lot of people feeling Dan's loss," Herta told reporters earlier in the week. "It's still a difficult situation and it still feels fresh, but it's really nice to see the continued outpouring of support for Dan and his family and everything he has done for IndyCar." Wheldon's smiling face was featured on the official race day tickets and spectators were given white cardboard sunglasses, in memory of the loony white-framed glasses the Englishman often wore, to wear on laps 26 and 98 - representing the numbers of his winning cars at the race in 2005 and 2011. Wheldon's wife Susie and their two sons attended the race week. On Thursday, the drivers presented Susie with her husband's championship ring from last year. On Saturday, race officials gave her a replica of the winner's trophy. Wheldon won his first Indianapolis 500 in 2005 but it was his victory last year for which he will be best remembered. Despite finishing runner-up in America's greatest race in 2009 and 2010 ...

2011 San Luis Obispo S. [02:56]
Champ Pegasus defeated 11-10 choice Bourbon Bay by a nose after a scintillating stretch battle in the $150000 San Luis Obispo Stakes (gr. IIT) on the Santa Anita turf course Feb. 19 (VIDEO). Trainer Richard Mandella said afterward that if Champ Pegasus is doing well after his exerting win, he would be pointed to the $5 million Dubai Sheema Classic (UAE-I) at 1 1/2 miles at Meydan Racecourse March 26. If Champ Pegasus makes the trip, the 2010 Emirates Airline Breeders' Cup Turf (gr. IT) runner-up may get a rematch with Dangerous Midge, who is expected to run in the Sheema Classic as well. On a course softened by rain, second choice Champ Pegasus, a homebred son of Fusaichi Pegasus --Salt Champ, by Salt Lake, went over $1 million in lifetime earnings for owners Diamond A Racing and Arturo Vargas. Bourbon Bay defeated Champ Pegasus by 1 3/4 lengths in the 10-furlong San Marcos Stakes (gr. II) Jan. 17. In his first start since the Breeders' Cup, Champ Pegasus led by one length at the eighth pole that day but could not hold off Bourbon Bay, who registered his fourth grade II win on the Santa Anita lawn. "My horse was trying very hard," Mandella said. "I was just hoping I would come out on the right end. I was confident on the softer going, but Bourbon Bay was five for five on the course. My horse definitely needed his last race. I didn't have him as fit as I thought I did (in the San Marcos), and I had underestimated how good Bourbon Bay was, and he is very good." Ridden by ...
