Desert Orchid- The 1989 Cheltenham Gold Cup [01:31]
Desert Orchid (April 11, 1979 -- November 13, 2006), known as Dessie, was an English racehorse. The grey achieved iconic status within National Hunt racing, where he was much loved by supporters for his front-running attacking style, iron will and extreme versatility. He was rated the 5th best National Hunt horse of all time by Timeform. He is considered by many as the greatest jumper of all time and also the greatest front runner in history. Here he is winning the 1989 Cheltenham Gold Cup with jockey Simon Sherwood.

Agave Kiss - Cicada Stakes (G3) [01:46]
Undefeated Agave Kiss stretched her winning streak to four Saturday afternoon with a front-running, three-length victory over Corderosa in Aqueduct Racetrack's Grade 3, $150000 Cicada for 3-year-old fillies. After a brief tussle for the lead with Alydarla at the start, Agave Kiss quickly cleared the field and rolled through an opening quarter-mile in 23.12 seconds. Widening her advantage as the half went in 46.24, the Lion Heart filly turned for home with her closest rival five lengths back, and was never threatened through the stretch, coming home in 1:11.76 for the six furlongs.

Coetzee stars in CXIR Mile, Sprint Trial double (2) - Turf Race Highlights [03:20]
Race Meeting: 23/11/2008 Sha Tin Hong Kong Group Two - 1200 Metres THE CATHAY PACIFIC INTERNATIONAL SPRINT TRIAL Felix Coetzee produced a riding masterclass of contrasts to win both the Cathay Pacific International Mile and Sprint Trials and fuel hopes of local glory in the Turf World Championships on 14 December. The South African maestro outfoxed his rivals with a gem of a front-running ride aboard Egyptian Ra in the Mile Trial and had to summon every ounce of strength to force Enthused over the line a nose in front of Sunny Power in the Sprint equivalent. Now facing a five-meeting spell on the sidelines for weighing in light last weekend, Coetzee joked: "The wins have come just in time because I need some money for my holiday!" The fact that Egyptian Ra won the Cathay Pacific International Mile Trial could hardly be described as a shock despite the presence of the Horse of the Year, Good Ba Ba. It was, rather, the manner of victory that caught the breath. Few, if any, could have predicted an all-the-way romp by three and three-quarter lengths from Sight Winner with Good Ba Ba in third. The latter had little hope with the way the race was run - the time of 1 min 33.28 was marginally outside the track record - having been over ten lengths last at halfway. Trained by Tony Cruz, Egyptian Ra has long been known for his propensity to race too freely and burn his energy in the wrong part of the track. On this occasion, however, Coetzee bounced the seven-year-old to the front ...

Mucho Macho Man - Aqueduct Allowance [01:56]
Graded stakes winner Mucho Macho Man, making his first start since finishing seventh in the Grade 1 Belmont Stakes in June, used front-running tactics to capture his comeback race, a $55000 allowance/optional claiming event on Wednesday at Aqueduct Racetrack. Mucho Macho Man was quickest from the gate and led through fractions of 23.32 and 46.32 while receiving pressure from Southern Ridge. Ramon Dominguez gave Mucho Macho Man more rein on the far turn, and the 3-year-old son of Macho Uno steadily increased his advantage to the wire, defeating runner-up Gallant Fields by 5 ¾ lengths. Off as the 7-5 favorite, Mucho Macho Man paid $4.90 and completed one mile in 1:34.72.
