Unsaddling after the Big Race at Belmont Park [01:00]
Here is a quick shot of Our Lake and Ludlow coming back from his first race. All the horses (except for the lucky winner who is headed to the Winner's Circle!) come back and meet their handlers. The Jockey dismounts and takes his tack and equipment with him to the scales to weigh in. He must weigh in with the same weight he was carrying before the race. After he weighs in then we approach him and get the needed feedback about the race and the horse's trip. In this case Jamie "the Rocket" Rodriguez was very excited about the way L&L ran. He said he was closing nicely at the end but got a bit tired. This may have been due to the very gooey yielding turf. He said next time we will see a great improvement because in his words "this horse is very competitive". That is great news to hear from the Jockey after a first race!

Roger - A new life... [05:01]
Hey everyone, meet Roger! Our new rescue! We've had him for three weeks - I know, I've been tight lipped! He's 16.2, 7yo and been off the track for 5 months. He was raced successfully at the start of his career, but as they do, he started loosing races and was sacked and before long, headed for slaughter. We got to him one week before he was due to be taken for meat, got him home and got to work on him right away. He was very skinny, head to toe with the worst case of rainscald I've ever seen, and his coat was really bad nick. Medicated baths, worming, vaccs, farriers, ground work, and LOTS of feed later and he's ready to start ridden work, and today was the first ever ride. He has lovely, springy paces, and a really kind attitude towards work. Loves people and has lovely ground manners. He is going to be amazing with a bit of work put it - watch this space!!! Please NO CRIT on my riding, first time ever on this horse, and his first time back in work for a long while. I am working with a coach so I will get 'helpful tips' from her, I know where my faults are and are working on them, thank you :) Thanks so much everyone for all your support so far, I really love reading all your lovely comments so keep em coming!!! :) Thanks for all your subs and all your 'thumbs up's' :D Love u all xoxoxoxo

Afleet Express - 2010 Travers Stakes (G1) [02:32]
Galloping out after the oh-so-close finish of the Grade 1, $1 million Travers at Saratoga Race Course, jockeys Javier Castellano, aboard Afleet Express, and Jose Lezcano, riding Fly Down, looked questioningly at each other. "What do you think?" asked Lezcano. "Either way," replied Castellano. It took a photo to decide, and at the very end of the 1 ¼ miles it showed the Jimmy Jerkens-trained Afleet Express had gotten a sliver of a nostril in front of Nick Zito's late-running colt in one of the closest finishes in the 141 runnings of the Mid-Summer Derby. Cleverly ridden by Castellano, who tucked the son of Afleet Alex into the middle of the pack as Miner's Reserve led through fractions of 23.42, 47.25 and 1:11.39, Afleet Express began picking off rivals with a half-mile to go in the 1 ¼-mile race. Moving up along the inside on the far turn, Afleet Express swung out at the top of the lane into the lead even as Fly Down came barreling widest -- and fastest -- of all to hook up as they headed to the eighth pole. Battling saddlecloth-to-saddlecloth through the final 200 yards, with the crowd of 45764 on its feet, Afleet Express somehow managed to prevail by less than an inch, hitting the wire in 2:03.28. It was the ninth time the Travers had been decided by a nose, and the closest finish since Colonel John nipped Mambo in Seattle in 2008.

2009 Lexington Stakes - Advice [02:05]
Six weeks ago WinStar Farm looked as though it would be without a starter in the upcoming Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I). Now, the powerful outfit could have three, the final potential starter coming thanks to a eye-catching, last-to-first victory by Advice in the $300000 Coolmore Lexington Stakes (gr. II) April 18 on the Keeneland Polytrack. WinStar, which has had two Derby starters in each of the past three years, also owns Lanes End Stakes (gr. II) winner Hold Me Back and California-based Mr. Hot Stuff. Both colts appear headed to Louisville. Advice, who had only a maiden win to show from five lifetime starts, broke from post 11 in the 1 1/16-mile Lexington, the final major Derby prep. He was immediately steered toward the fence by Garrett Gomez, and the son of Chapel Royal was content to save ground at the back of the field until the late stages of the final turn. Still behind a wall of horses entering the lane, Advice was swung wide by Gomez for his winning move. Now in striking position at the top of the lane, the dark bay or brown colt set his sights on Square Eddie, who had made his own powerful move around the far turn to take a comfortable lead in upper stretch. Advice stormed to the front inside the sixteenth-pole and powered home for a one length score. "I actually had a good trip from the 11-hole," said Gomez. "(Square Eddie) kind of got left (at the starting gate), it looked like. I just kind of clocked him the whole way and followed him ...
