Mystical Star - 2012 New York S. (G2) [02:24]
Mystical Star atoned for her previous misbehavior in the starting gate by breaking in a timely manner and turning back Aruna's stretch run to win Belmont Park's Grade 2, $200000 New York for turf fillies and mares on Saturday. In her previous race, Belmont's Grade 2 Sheepshead Bay on May 26, Mystical Star found herself 19 lengths behind at the first call after beating the gate, rearing up, and veering inward. She closed resolutely to be third under the finish line before being disqualified and placed last of eight for her premature start. This time, Mystical Star was away in second as she tracked long shot pacesetter The Underling for a half-mile before assuming command along the backstretch while receiving pressure from Hit It Rich. Set down as the field turned for home, Mystical Star kicked away from Hit It Rich, then gave Sheepshead Bay winner Aruna the cold shoulder to register a one-length victory. Mystical Star, a 4-year-old who went off as the 9-2 fourth choice, paid $11.80 for a $2 win wager and completed 1 ¼ miles over the firm inner turf course in 2:00.17.

Belmont Stakes (2012) - Union Rags Wins at the Wire [02:52]
Belmont Stakes (2012) - Union Rags Wins at the Wire The Belmont Stakes ran Saturday evening, but anticipation for the big race dwindled suddenly when on Friday it was announced that favorite to win and Triple Crown contender, I'll Have Another, scratched and subsequently retired due to a leg injury. However, the show must go on... and it did, with Union Rags taking the win for the 2012 Belmont Stakes. Union Rags prevailed in the field of 11 3-year-olds in the 144th running of the Belmont, but even so, there wasn't much excitement among fans entering the huge racetrack hours before the race. The Belmont win is worth $600000 out of a $1 million purse. "I don't have words to describe it," jockey John Velazquez said. "For (trainer Michael Matz) to finally rise up to the top again, I'm very, very happy. Union Rags passed by Painter at the finish line, giving Valazquez his second career win. Union Rags came in 7th at the Kentucky Derby and bypassed the Preakness Stakes altogether. As for I'll Have Another, he did make an appearance, however. The Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner will instead be led to the winner's circle before the race for a retirement ceremony. "We felt that this would be a fitting ceremonial retirement for an incredible racehorse," I'll Have Another's trainer Doug O'Neill said. "There are many fans who traveled from near and far to see I'll Have Another today, and we wanted to give them a chance to help us send him off to retirement." With a Triple Crown ...

1999 Belmont Stakes - Lemon Drop Kid : Full ABC Broadcast [01:01:11]
Charismatic, standing on the threshold of sweeping the Triple Crown, missed his date with history yesterday when he ran third in the Belmont Stakes behind the 29-1 long shot Lemon Drop Kid. And, worse, in a stunning finish to the saga of the colt who won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness at long odds, Charismatic fractured two bones in his left front leg as he crossed the finish line. The injury did not appear to be life-threatening but it ended his racing career. It also brought a sorrowful close to what had been a rousing day at Belmont Park, with a record crowd of 85818 on hand in perfect weather to see if Charismatic could become the first horse in 21 years to win the Triple Crown. Instead, he became the 15th horse, and the third in three years, to win the Derby and Preakness but fail to cross the finish line first in the mile-and-a-half race. Charismatic, who ran in a claiming race in February before surging to the top of the 3-year-old racing world in the past two months, will undergo surgery late this morning. Dr. Larry Bramlage, a veterinarian from Lexington, Ky., reported that the colt had cracked the cannon bone just above the ankle and had fractured the sesamoid behind it. ''It is not life-threatening,'' Bramlage said, ''but it definitely means his racing career is over. However, he should be fine as a stallion.'' Chris Antley, the jockey who overcame problems of weight and substance abuse and made a roaring comeback aboard Charismatic in the Derby and the ...

1998 Belmont Stakes - Victory Gallop : Full ABC Broadcast [01:09:42]
The Triple Crown of horse racing slipped away from Real Quiet in the final strides of the Belmont Stakes yesterday, when he was run down and beaten by a nose by Victory Gallop, the horse who chased him home in both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. They staged a roaring duel down the homestretch on a brilliantly sunny and cool afternoon before 80162 fans at Belmont Park, the second-largest crowd to see the race in its 130 runnings. And they saw a Belmont Stakes of show-stopping drama, the closest in the 20 years since Affirmed nipped Alydar by a head to become the 11th horse to win the Triple Crown. No horse has completed a sweep since then. Real Quiet became the 14th to lose it in the final race in the series, and lost by the narrowest margin among those 14. Afterward, the stewards suggested that he might have been disqualified if he had won the race because he brushed Victory Gallop twice in the homestretch. For the second year in a row, the trainer Bob Baffert was foiled on the threshold of completing a Triple Crown. He was thwarted last year when Silver Charm lost the Belmont to Touch Gold by three-quarters of a length. He was foiled again this year when Real Quiet was nipped by Victory Gallop. And in one of those twists of fortune, Silver Charm's losing jockey, Gary Stevens, became the winning jockey this year on Victory Gallop. ''Being beat at the finish line, it hurts a lot,'' said Kent Desormeaux, who rode Real Quiet in the Derby, the Preakness and the Belmont ...

From left to right, the contestants are: Connie on Jazz (chestnut Florida Cracker gelding), Daniel on Achilles (chestnut Andalusian/QH gelding), Tyler on Gus (dun QH gelding), Kerry on Jessie (brown/white paint mare), Mary((me)) on Pascal (bay QH gelding). Obviously, Connie won this one, and the rest of us were just in this big pack. The next race video is better because we set up horse/rider finish line poles. (Sam on Tazer and Kevin on McCager, Kevin is also our wonderful film-maker here and we thank him very much for taking these videos.) (Lol I just noticed that in the middle of the race, Tyler lost his orange hat.)
