Marilyn's Guy - 2012 Excelsior (G3) [04:18]
Marilyn's Guy earned his second career stakes victory Saturday afternoon at Aqueduct Racetrack, holding off a resurgent San Pablo to take the 100th running of the Grade 3, $150000 Excelsior by a neck. The 6-year-old son of Yonaguska, who came off an 11-month layoff to win the As Indicated overnight stakes at the Big A on February 18, broke alertly and quickly moved up to within a half-length of San Pablo as he led the field of six through an opening quarter-mile in 24.00 seconds and a half in 48.81. Surging to the front with a little more than three-eighths of a mile to go, the big gray gelding opened up by 2 ½ lengths at the top of the stretch, and despite wearying through the final yards, was able to muster just enough to hit the wire in front. Marilyn's Guy covered the 1 1/8 miles of the Excelsior -- the final graded stakes of the Big A's inner track meet -- in 1:52.54.

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 ...

1994 Excelsior BC Handicap - Colonial Affair
Affair ran 13th in the Breeders' Cup Classic last fall, but he has been recovering his command this year, and ran a close second to Virginia Rapids in the Westchester Handicap three weeks ago. "He's developed so much," Schulhofer said. "How he's filled out. Last fall, he was just a big gawky kid. He's still a kid, but he's growing up and he's doing everything better." ... aqueduct horse racing colonial affair miners mark jose santos tom durkin west by federal funds jacksonport contract court ...
