1979 Travers Stakes: CBS Broadcast [09:15]
Next to the Daily Racing Form listing of five of the seven starters in last Saturday's Travers Stakes at Saratoga was an asterisk indicating that those horses could handle a muddy track. The other two had no mud mark. When rain drenched the track, making the going difficult and tiring, bettors gave those marks and those non-marks considerable thought. They could have saved themselves the effort. One of the two without a mark was General Assembly, an enigmatic critter who went out and won the 110th Travers by 15 splashy lengths. The General has led a puzzling racing life, up one day and down the next. Racing fans adore him after one race and deride him after the next. Until last week's Travers he was known primarily as "Secretariat's best son," but that has meant very little because Secretariat has been anything but the sire he was expected to be when he was sent to stud after his stunning two years as a runner. Well, what General Assembly did in the Travers was stunning and more. He ran over a track rated "sloppy" in 2:00 for the 1� miles to set not only a stakes record but a track record as well, and Saratoga is the oldest track in the US, having opened its iron gates 116 years ago. The field the General left in his wake was the best group of 3-year-olds assembled since the Kentucky Derby. Not since Secretariat himself won the 1973 Belmont Stakes by 31 lengths has there been so overwhelming a triumph in a race of such high significance. But a question remains, one as ...

2003 Kentucky Derby: Full Broadcast [01:05:32]
There on the track was Empire Maker, the impeccably bred favorite with a tender foot, a cocky trainer from Brooklyn and a plurality of the public's money on his back. There was Atswhatimtalknbout, the Hollywood horse, partly owned by movie royalty, and there, too, was Indian Express, the rhythm-and-bluegrass colt whose owner was a legendary record producer in the 1950's. But for the two minutes that count the most on the first Saturday in May, the real star was a New York-bred gelding named Funny Cide, who was sent off at the ''yeah, right'' odds of better than 12-1 and romped off with a victory of a length and three-quarters in the 129th running of the Kentucky Derby. But forget for a moment Funny Cide's glitzier and supposedly more formidable competition. By any standard, this was an improbable victory. A New York-bred had never won the Derby, and the last time a gelding won was in 1929, when Clyde Van Dusen posted a two-length victory. The public was caught unawares, and six buddies from Sackets Harbor, NY, who own Funny Cide and run under the banner of Sackatoga Stable with four other partners were stunned by their good fortune. ''We are a three-horse stable,'' said Jackson Knowlton, one of the owners who bought the gelding for $75000 in a private sale. ''We are the little guys in the game. Everyone who dreams in this game, who owns two or five horses, look at what you can accomplish. Little did we know.'' Maybe it should not have been a surprise that a group of ...

Mac the Man Breaks His Maiden at Presque Isle Downs [04:24]
MAC THE MAN was off awkwardly, dueled outside of foe, then drew off in the stretch under a mild drive. DR. HOWARD veered in at the start, stalked the pace between rivals, then had a mild late bid. SHADY RULES veered in at the start, rallied five wide at the quarter pole, but was no threat to the winner. MEDIA GROUPIE was bumped at the start, dueled inside, then gave way in the stretch. DIXIE DEPUTY raced evenly inside. NEV'S CAT was off awkwardly, pressed the pace three wide and gave way in the stretch. MORNING CIGAR was not a factor. COPYWRITER stalked the early pace inside, then gave way. RAISEDBYINDIANS was impeded at the start, then was not a factor. CLEVER MISSILE showed brief speed five wide.
