Landaluce Educe Racing's 2013 Broodmare Band Portraits [14:02]
BROODMARE PORTRAIT PHOTO SHOOT This video captures the effort and manner by which all of our broodmares and N1 had their portraits taken in February. The goal is to get the filly in full sunlight with the dark background of the barn to help her stand out and provide definition. The filly's head is angled between 20 and 45° for two different photos. One will show the brass nameplate on the halter and the other is more of a head-on shot. The photo is taken at an angle to give depth perception to the filly's body. Shown in this session are: The groom, Tina who was drafted to work the reflector, Wendy - Matt's wife and a talented photographer but today is working on getting the horses attention to get their ears perked and alert, and Matt taking the photos. The reflector puts soft light on the dark side of the filly to highlight the brass nameplate on the halter and gives light to the filly's eye. Wendy has a recording of various barnyard animals to grab the horse's attention. It is a process, but when the moment is right a portrait to remember is captured. Niji's Grand Girl (Candy Ride), Volcat (After Market), Mazzy (Giant's Causeway), and Niji's Foal (Giant's Causeway) each have their portraits taken. The video is 14 minutes long, but captures all that went into the hour spent getting the portraits. Music: Groove Armada - 'Edge Hill,' 'Little By Little,' 'My Friend.'

1998 Breeders' Cup Mile + Post Race [13:40]
Regardless of the odds it is not wise to dismiss any horse trained by Michael Dickinson. The lesson was manifested dramatically this afternoon as Da Hoss, at 11-1 odds and in only his second start after a 22-month layoff, won the $1 million Breeders' Cup Mile for the second time in three years. With a half-furlong remaining the 6-year-old gelding appeared beaten as another long shot, Hawksley Hill, pushed his nose in front on the outside. But under the jockey John Velazquez, who had never had a Breeders' Cup mount before this year, Da Hoss rallied and prevailed by a head at the wire. The final time for the race on a turf course rated firm was 1:351/5 , three-fifths of a second faster than the clocking when Da Hoss won the Breeders' Cup Mile at Woodbine in Toronto in 1996 under Gary Stevens. This time, he returned $25.20 for a $2 win ticket. Miesque, a champion in both Europe and North America, won consecutive runnings of the Mile in 1987-88, as did Lure in 1992-93. But in many respects Da Hoss's twin triumphs are more extraordinary, because the only start he made between them was a three-quarter-length victory in allowance company at Colonial Downs in Virginia on Oct. 11. Da Hoss has been plagued with physical problems since he was a foal. ''A fetlock when he was a foal,'' Dickinson said, ''a pair of bone spurs as a yearling, another fetlock in June of last year, some lameness last fall. There have been some vet bills. His groom spends six hours a day with him, massaging ...
