2013 Monrovia Stakes - Unique Video [01:40]
This is a unique video of the 2013 Monrovia Stakes that took place on January 6, 2013. The video specifically spotlights Kindle of HnR Nothhaft Racing. Mizdirection, making her first start since defeating males in the Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (gr. IT), ran down speedy Kindle in the shadow of the wire to register a repeat victory in the $150000 Monrovia Stakes (gr. IIT) over the hillside turf course at Santa Anita Park Jan. 6 (VIDEO). The 9-10 favorite in a field of five older fillies and mares, Mizdirection was ridden to a half-length victory by Mike Smith. The 5-year-old mare by Mizzen Mast improved to 4-for-4 over the hillside course for trainer Mike Puype and her owners, sports radio personality Jim Rome's Jungle Racing, Danny Grohs, William Strauss, Kevin Nish, and Mike Kramek. Mizdirection, who surpassed $1 million in career earnings with the victory, has now won six of her past seven races dating back to December 2011. But she had to dig in to get this one. "Right when you think maybe she's beat, she just digs deep and finds a way to do it," Rome said. "And as I always say in this moment, I could not be more proud of her. She's got another gear. She does not like to lose. When she's got a good target to shoot for, she usually turns out pretty well." The final time for the about 6 1/2 furlongs was 1:11.94 over firm ground. The race was contested in a cloud burst that began shortly before the start. Mizdirection won the Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint at Santa Anita Nov. 3 ...

1995 Wood Memorial Stakes [13:22]
The road to Kentucky may run through New York after all. In perhaps the most impressive performance by a 3-year-old colt this year and on the heels of his decisive victory in the Gotham three weeks ago, Talkin Man led every step of the way to win the 71st running of the $500000 Wood Memorial yesterday at Aqueduct. Talkin Man did it in impressive fashion, toying with seven colts before pulling away for a 7 3/4-length victory over Knockadoon and assuring himself a date at Churchill Downs in three weeks, perhaps as the favorite of the Kentucky Derby on May 6. The 2-to-5 favorite in the Grade II Wood, Talkin Man left the rest of the field -- none had won a graded stakes race -- in the dust at the top of the stretch. Jockey Shane Sellers, riding the Canadian-bred horse for the first, and likely last time, because Mike Smith had to honor another commitment in Arkansas, never used his whip as his mount covered the mile and an eighth in an easy 1:491/5 . "I was just a passenger out there," Sellers said after Talkin Man breezed through fractions of 234/5 seconds for the quarter, 48 flat for the half, 1:123/5 over 6 furlongs and the mile in 1:37 even, while never being asked to run all out. "Regardless of what the pace was, I knew what I had underneath me. He was telling me, 'We OK, we OK Don't worry about nothing.' " Coupled with the upset victory by the 30-1 long shot Wild Syn in the Blue Grass at Keeneland a little over an hour earlier, Talkin Man's victory guarantees that the ...
