NASCAR fan is hit and killed by lightning strike in the parking lot of Pocono Raceway (my response) [01:11]
(my response) Brian Zimmerman, of Moosic, Pa., died as he stood near his car in the parking lot of Pocono Raceway, according to the Monroe County coroner. A woman who answered the phone at Zimmerman's home declined comment. Nine other people were injured during Sunday's violent storm, though it wasn't immediately clear how many might have been struck by lightning. One who had been listed Sunday night in critical condition was upgraded to stable. The crowd of about 85000 was advised over public address systems and through social media to take cover Sunday afternoon when lightning and heavy rain hit the track near the end of the race. But some fans posted on the raceway's Facebook page that they never heard the weather-related announcements. NASCAR spokesman Dave Higdon said Monday that officials are reviewing how the track carried out its emergency procedures. He cautioned against rushing to judgment until all the facts are known. ''Anytime something like this happens, we make sure we look at it again and see if there's anything we should have done different,'' Higdon said. ''It's never a good day for us when someone passes and people are hurt.'' Pocono Raceway president and CEO Brandon Igdalsky expressed sorrow at a news conference Monday afternoon at the track, where a large US flag flew at half-staff. ''Fans are like family to us,'' Igdalsky said, noting that Zimmerman had been coming to races for several years with his friends. He added that he planned to contact ...

2012 Breeders' Cup contender - Acclamation makes it seven straight with easy Eddie Read repeat [02:55]
Allowed to walk the dog on the lead through slow fractions over 1 1/8-miles on Del Mar's turf course, Acclamation made 1-to-2 look like a gift, strolling home by 2 3/4-lengths over four rivals to win for the seventh straight time in graded stakes company while repeating in the $300000 Eddie Read (Grade I). "(Whether) he sets fast fractions or slow fractions, he always comes home," said jockey Patrick Valenzuela of the 2011 Eclipse-award Champion Older Horse. "I've ridden some champions like Sunday Silence and Arazi, but for any horse to go out and set the pace like that and come home the final quarter like he does, that's a true race horse." The win pushed career earnings to over $1.95 million for the 6-year-old California-bred son of Unusual Heat, who could attempt to repeat in the $1 million Pacific Classic at the end of August. Options are open for either the Breeders' Cup Classic or Turf as the end of the year goal at Santa Anita. "Acclamation and Tom Knust (Valenzuela's agent) made this comeback happen," said Valenzuela, who returned from yet another retirement earlier this year. "My weight's good and I just want to get more winners." A champion in Argentina, Interaction rallied for second at 11-to-1 in his fourth US start and Casino Host rounded out the trifecta at 6-to-1 making his first start in the barn of Ron Ellis.
