1979 Preakness Stakes [09:53]
Last Saturday afternoon at Pimlico following Spectacular Bid's 5�-length victory in the Preakness, one could almost hear the flapping of wings as the last of the colt's detractors took off for parts unknown. Bid ran his best race yet. By picking up first money of $165300, he pushed his bankroll over $1 million to become the youngest millionaire in racing history, and he ran the mile and [3/16]ths in 1:54[1/5], the second-fastest time in a race that is 104 years old. Appearing to toy with four opponents, Spectacular Bid rolled easily to the finish line to a tremendous ovation from his owners' neighbors in Baltimore, where this handsome gray colt has now become as much of a hero as Brooks Robinson, John Unitas and the blue crab. With the first two legs tucked away, Spectacular Bid must now be considered odds-on to become the third Triple Crown winner in the past three years. On June 9, he will try to complete the sweep in the Belmont Stakes. The main question about that race is how many opponents the New York Racing Association can muster to run against him. There won't be a bunch. An hour after the Preakness, LeRoy Jolley, the trainer of fifth-place finisher General Assembly, reflected on what he had witnessed. "There were times when I had doubts about Spectacular Bid," he said. "No more. My horse couldn't have beaten him if he had cut through the infield. I've had enough of running against Spectacular Bid for a while. So has the General. Spectacular Bid's Preakness was ...

Belmont Park - Super Saturday 1993 [42:43]
Super Saturday Broadcast of the 1993 Woodward, Man o War, Matron and Futurity.. After flying 3000 miles to do it, Bertrando injected some California intrigue into the contest for Horse of the Year yesterday when he led all the way to win the $500000 Woodward Stakes at Belmont Park by a resounding 13 1/2 lengths over the hometown hero, Devil His Due. It was four weeks after Bertrando had won the Pacific Classic and come into his own as perhaps the most formidable speedhorse on the West Coast, and maybe in the country. And he did nothing to diminish his stature yesterday as Gary Stevens rode him to the victory that marked him as one of the leading candidates for year-end honors and championships. Devil His Due, the winner of four stakes this year, did win something of value yesterday. He won the "race within the race," the contest for first place in the American Championship Racing Series, which ended with the Woodward. With points accumulated from his earlier races, he beat out Bertrando for the top bonus of $550000, while Bertrando got second prize of $225000. Valley Crossing ran third in the Woodward and third in the series for a bonus of $125000. But during the last two months, Bertrando has soared. He crossed the country in July and ran third behind Valley Crossing and Devil His Due in the Iselin Handicap at Monmouth Park in New Jersey. Then he went home and won the Pacific Classic by three lengths over his stablemate, Missionary Ridge, and even outran the celebrated ...
