1996 Meadowlands Cup [02:08]
Dramatic Gold won a narrow stretch duel tonight to capture the $750000 Buick Meadowlands Cup, the richest thoroughbred race ever held in New Jersey. Ridden by Kent Desormeaux, Dramatic Gold held off Formal Gold by three-quarters of a length. The 5-year-old covered the mile and an eighth in 1 minute 48 seconds and paid $12.20 for a $2 bet in winning his third race in eight starts this year. Geri, the even-money favorite, finished next to last in the field of 11, his first finish out of the money this year. Mt. Sassafras was third. Gulf Reckoning, who was a perfect 4 for 4 on the Meadowlands main track, led the field through the first three-quarters of a mile. He tired to run fourth and was followed by Eltish, Run Softly, Devil's Honor, November Sunset, Victory Speech, Geri and Stephanotis.

1997 Queen's Plate Stakes - Awesome Again [02:30]
When Awesome Again made his unheralded arrival for the 1997 Queen's Plate, he had a bankroll of $25000 from two career starts, both in California and both in the five weeks before the Plate. A year later he would retire as the richest Canadian-bred in history with earnings of more than $4.3 million. The rookie won the Plate by almost four lengths in his only appearance on Canadian soil. Owner Frank Stronach felt the colt could challenge the best in the US, which he did. At age 4 he was undefeated in five races before facing one of the greatest fields ever assembled in the $5 million (US) Breeders' Cup Classic in Louisville, upsetting Silver Charm, Swain, Victory Gallop, Skip Away, Gentleman and Touch Gold. Awesome on the track, the son of Canadian champion sire Deputy Minister was also awesome in the breeding shed, siring Breeders' Cup winners Ghostzapper and Wilko.
