New York Watch: Micromanage [01:37]
On the final Saturday of the 2011 Saratoga Race Course meet, a 2-year-old colt named Alpha joined the New York Watch after posting a debut score in a seven-furlong maiden special weight, and 51 weeks later he was in Saratoga's winner's circle after dead heating for the win in the Grade 1 Travers. This year, Micromanage, a Todd Pletcher trainee, posted a five-length debut win in a seven-furlong race on the last Saturday of the meet, and his owner, Mike Repole, hopes history will repeat. "If we can duplicate Alpha's career with this horse, I think I'd be pretty content," said Repole, who won the 2011 Travers with Stay Thirsty. In his debut, Micromanage raced in fifth under jockey Javier Castellano in the opening quarter mile, ranged up three wide to offer his bid on the turn, overtook favored Gulfport straightening for home, and steadily widened his advantage in the stretch. Apex overtook Gulfport late for second. Micromanage, one of two first-time starters in the field of eight, completed the race in 1:23.01 and paid $13.60 for a $2 win wager as the 5-1 fourth choice.

Turbulent Descent - 2012 Ballerina (G1) [01:39]
Odds-on favorite Turbulent Descent earned her fourth career Grade 1 victory in the first start for her new connections, taking over at the top of the stretch and going on to a 1 ¼-length win over Derwin's Star in Friday's $500000 Ballerina at Saratoga Race Course. Purchased privately by Michael Tabor, Mrs. John Magnier and Derrick Smith this summer and sent to trainer Todd Pletcher, the 4-year-old Congrats filly was making her second start of 2012 and first since taking the Desert Stormer Handicap on June 17 at Betfair Hollywood Park. Away from the gate alertly, Turbulent Descent raced three-wide alongside Island Bound and Nicole H as All Due Respect led through an opening quarter-mile in 23.02 seconds, with the half going in 45.33. Moving up with Nicole H on the turn, Turbulent Descent quickly assumed command straightening for home and was never threatened as she galloped under the wire in 1:22.13 for the seven furlongs.

Stroller's fourth race [05:09]
The horse was very late to the barriers due to saddle problems. He didn't parade and the other horses were at the barrier as he was still getting his saddle adjusted. Jockey said that he didn't want to use him up too early but going around the turn he got pushed wide by another horse (Man of Stealth I think). Jockey said the horse doesn't jump well, we corrected him on that, and then he said that he doesn't get into stride quick enough. Jockey said that just after the start it felt like the horse was running down hill. We think the horse didn't like the type of saddle used by the jockey which requires a very tight girth as it has no breast collar. This restricted the horse and was uncomfortable which is why he felt like he was running down hill. For some reason the jockey seems to punch the horse on the rump whilst in the barriers (at 38 seconds) Maybe the horse was leaning?

Men's pentathlon David Svoboda wins the gold - Summer Olympics 2012 in London (my response) [01:36]
(my response) David Svoboda of the Czech Republic won the modern pentathlon Saturday at the London Games after matching the Olympic record in the fencing event to open the competition. Svoboda, who won the European championship two years ago, led by just one second going into the final event, a combination of running and shooting. He briefly lost the lead after his main rival, Cao Zhongrong of China, was quicker to hit the five targets. Svoboda, however, regained the lead in the running part of the event, throwing his arms in the air to celebrate long before crossing the line. He finished with 5928 points to beat silver medalist Cao by 24 points. Adam Marosi of Hungary, the 2009 world champion, won bronze with 5836 points. ''In Beijing, I was fighting for the gold medal, but it all ended in disappointment,'' said Svoboda, who started as the favorite at the 2008 Olympics but finished 28th. ''So I decided to fight for gold again.'' Cao said he was ''quite happy'' with his performance after earning China's first medal in the event. ''To show your strength on the Olympic grandstand, that's great,'' Cao said through an interpreter. World champion Aleksander Lesun went into the final event in third place, but needed 10 shots to hit his five targets in his first shooting round. He lost too much time there to keep up with Svoboda and Cao, and finished fourth. Two-time defending champion Andrei Moiseev of Russia lost his chance at another gold, falling to sixth going into the ...
