1994 Hollywood Preview Stakes [01:09]
After running six furlongs in a sprightly 1:08 4/5 at Santa Anita on Oct. 23, Afternoon Deelites came back Sunday in the $95250 Hollywood Prevue Breeders' Cup and won by three lengths with virtually no encouragement from jockey Kent Desormeaux. His seven-furlong time of 1:20 4/5 broke the stakes record by a fifth of a second and came within two-fifths of the track record, which was set by the 7-year-old Memo, another Mandella trainee, in the Triple Bend Handicap in July. With two scratches, there were only three horses for Afternoon Deelites to beat, and he left them with an electrifying burst of speed at the top of the stretch. Valid Wager, the 13-10 favorite who had been second in the Arlington-Washington Futurity, finished second, four lengths ahead of Hunt for Missouri. Southern Tempo, the leader after a half-mile, was last, beaten by 18 lengths. "That horse that won accelerated like no other 2-year-old I've seen this year," said Chris McCarron, who rode Hunt for Missouri. "He accelerated like maybe Mandella was running a 4-year-old against us. Maybe they ought to check this one's lip tattoo." Like Soul of the Matter, Afternoon Deelites is a West Virginia-bred and a son of Private Terms. Bacharach said that Afternoon Deelites' dam, Intimate Girl, was injured and retired after running only one race. Soul of the Matter, this year's Super Derby winner, was fifth in the Kentucky Derby and fourth in the Breeders' Cup Classic. "This colt's a lot like Soul of the Matter ...

2012 Breeders' Cup contender - Coil on to Sprint after staying perfect at six furlongs [01:23]
Already a Grade I winner over a route of ground last year as a 3-year-old, Coil earned an automatic berth into next month's $1.5 million Breeders' Cup Sprint (Grade I) by rallying late under Martin Garcia to win the $250000 Santa Anita Sprint Championship (Grade I) by a head over stable mate Capital Account. Since moving to Bob Baffert's barn, Coil has won 6-of-10 starts and eclipsed $1 million in career earnings by wining for the third time at the traditional six furlong sprint distance for owners Pegram or Watson or Weitman. The 7-to-1 price on Coil was by far the most generous of his career, which was previously the 9-to-2 his backers received when the Point Given colt made his first start for Baffert while breaking his maiden by over three lengths at Hollywood Park in November of 2010. Looking to move one step closer to defending his Breeders' Cup and Eclipse Award Sprint Championships from a year ago, Amazombie faded to fourth as the 4-to-5 favorite after sitting the perfect trip behind dueling leaders and getting first jump on the closers. The only 3-year-old in the group, Jimmy Creed came up the rail late to secure the show.

1998 Kentucky Derby: Full ABC Broadcast [01:02:19]
For the second year in a row, and nearly the third, a horse trained by Bob Baffert won the Kentucky Derby as Real Quiet drew clear in the homestretch of Churchill Downs today to win America's premier horse race by half a length over Victory Gallop. For good measure, Baffert took third place with his previously undefeated Indian Charlie. Baffert's two colts also dominated the Santa Anita Derby four weeks ago when Indian Charlie finished first for his fourth straight victory and Real Quiet ran second. This time, they were separated by Victory Gallop, who won the Arkansas Derby three weeks ago over Favorite Trick, the 1997 Horse of the Year, who ran eighth today. But they nonetheless gave Baffert, the exuberant trainer from California, the landmark day of his career before a crowd of 143215, the third largest in the Derby's 124 years. One year ago, Baffert won the Derby with Silver Charm, who went on to win the Preakness before losing the Triple Crown by half a length to Touch Gold in the Belmont Stakes. Two years ago, Baffert came within the length of Grindstone's nose of winning the Derby with Cavonnier, which means he nearly swept the race three years in a row, something that no trainer has accomplished. Five other trainers have won the Derby in successive years, most recently D. Wayne Lukas with Thunder Gulch in 1995 and Grindstone in 1996. ''Hello, again,'' Baffert said hoarsely after the race. ''I don't think I'll ever feel the excitement I did over Silver Charm. But ...

1989 Breeders' Cup Classic + Pre & Post Race [34:11]
Sunday Silence grittily held off a desperate late charge by Easy Goer to win the $3 million Breeders' Cup Classic by a neck today at Gulfstream Park. The tight finish of this fourth meeting between the decade's greatest racing rivals brought a crowd of more than 50000 to a roar and settled the sport's major titles. Sunday Silence, who had beaten Easy Goer in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness before Easy Goer trounced him in the Belmont Stakes, is assured of being voted thoroughbred racing's Horse of the Year. Emotions ran high long after the official sign was posted. For Sunday Silence's backers and handlers, this was a long-awaited day of vindication. After the Belmont, their colt had been widely dismissed as only second-best despite holding a 2-1 edge in the rivalry. For Easy Goer's many fans, who made him the 1-2 betting favorite today, the result was flabbergasting. They found some excuses for him, but were devastated to see their colt emerge from this season as merely the second-best 3-year-old instead of being acclaimed as the champion of the decade. It was small consolation for Easy Goer's connections, the Ogden Phipps family and the trainer Shug McGaughey, that they won two of the six earlier Cup races today, with Rhythm in the Juvenile and Dancing Spree in the Sprint. Sunday Silence, a 3-year-old son of Halo and the Understanding mare Wishing Well, paid $6 for $2 to win as the second choice in the Classic betting and ran the mile and a quarter in 2:00 1/5 ...
