Richard Silverman Returns To The Sulky [06:15]
Meadowlands Racetrack's newest video feature celebrates the return of driver Richie Silverman, who was sidelined for six months by injuries he suffered in a racing accident last summer. The most severely hurt of the six drivers involved in the spill on June 18, 2010 at the Meadowlands, Silverman fractured both of his ankles and sustained a severe concussion after launching 20 feet into the air, landing on a fallen horse and then having his sulky land on top of him. After a lengthy physical rehabilitation process, he returned to the sulky on January 8, 2011 at the Meadowlands.

1999 Travers Stakes [04:33]
Lemon Drop Kid supplied a smashing encore to his victory in the Belmont Stakes today when he won the 130th running of the Travers and raced to the head of this season's class of 3-year-olds. The bay son of Kingmambo actually rewrote the climax to his June script in which he held off the long shot Vision and Verse by a head before a record Belmont crowd of 85818. This time, running against three of his Triple Crown rivals and four other colts with championship ambitions, he finished three-quarters of a length in front of Vision and Verse before a record Travers crowd of 51371. Then came the warriors: Menifee, the 9-5 favorite, got trapped on the inside and ran third in front of his stablemate, Ecton Park, while the star of the D. Wayne Lukas barn, Cat Thief, finished seventh with breathing problems. So, in million-dollar landmark races less than three months apart, Lemon Drop Kid staked his claim to the leadership of the class. It was once held by Charismatic, who won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness before running third in the Belmont, which he finished with a fractured leg that forced his retirement. And Lemon Drop Kid's jockey, Jose Santos, was quick to assert the claim. ''He is one of the best, if not the best 3-year-old,'' Santos said. ''He won the Belmont, beat Charismatic, and now he's won the Travers. Maybe now he'll get the respect he deserves.'' Scotty Schulhofer, who trains Lemon Drop Kid for Jeanne Vance and her husband, Laddie, remembered that his horse ...

Able One: three years on a repeat Champions Mile winner [01:33]
Three years after his first victory in the race, Able One added a second Champions Mile to his battle honours in the 2010 renewal. Huge credit must go to his trainer John Moore who has nursed and nurtured the race's first dual winner since Bullish Luck through a variety of stress fractures which have interfered with the progress of his career. Remarkably, Able One seems a better horse now than he was when winning under Mick Kinane's cunning ride to make all in 2007. "It seems he just gets better with age," remarked owner Dr Cornel Li Fook-kwan. The story of the 2010 Champions Mile is not complex, and it's a familiar one to any who saw Able One's victory in the Chairman's Trophy over course and distance on 4 April. On both occasions the horse travelled comfortably in fourth, then kicked early in the straight and held all opposition at bay. The only difference this time was that Darren Beadman was unable to secure the rail from the number 8 draw. But it made very little difference to the outcome as Able One once again delivered his now trademark burst of speed early in the run for the line and soon had all rivals in trouble. It was left to the superbly consistent Fellowship to give closest chase but, as expected by his connections who recognise the mile just stretches his stamina, the seven-year-old just flattened out in the last 100m, and Able One held him off by a fairly comfortable three quarters of a length. "He has hit a purple patch of form. His last run was very good ...
