My Year of the Racehorse by Kevin Chong (non-fiction book trailer) [00:43]
The story of a man, a horse, and a foul-mouthed trainer in the (once) glamorous world of horse racing. Kevin Chong has grand plans. He draws up a to-do list of major milestones that will give him the life he always wanted -- and the life that will inspire awe and envy in his friends. Then Chong makes an unconventional decision: he buys a racehorse. He becomes part-owner. Just don't ask him which part. Thus Chong meets Blackie, the horse that will win his heart, even if she doesn't always win the race. He meets Rosie, the cantankerous trainer with a heart of gold. He meets assorted characters who work, live, and drink at the track. And, one by one, the items on his to-do list are replaced with horse-related ambitions. Written with keen observational humour, My Year of the Racehorse is strewn with fascinating tidbits and infused with the excitement and faded glamour of the horseracing world. Ultimately, it is the moving tale of a young man's discovery that a meaningful life can arise from the most unexpected of circumstances. About the Author Kevin Chong is the author of four books, including Neil Young Nation -- honoured as a book of the year by the Toronto Star, Globe & Mail, and Ottawa Citizen and aired as a documentary on CBC's Definitely Not the Opera -- and the novels Baroque-a-Nova and Beauty Plus Pity. He is an editor at Joyland.ca and teaches creative writing at UBC.

Dan Wheldon's Big Fatal Crash at IndyCar Las Vegas Motor Speedway 16/10/11 - HD - RIP Dan Wheldon [03:49]
Content is not mine, ESPN. Using it not for infringement but to pay repects for Dan Wheldon. Contains content from TV Bandeirantes (Brazil) At the 2011 IZOD IndyCar World Championship at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on 16 October 2011, Wheldon was involved in a 15-car accident during lap 11 of the race. The multi-car pile-up resulted in a red flag. Wheldon had to be extricated from his car and was airlifted to a local hospital with what were described as "serious injuries." He subsequently died of his injuries. He was 33 years old. It was decided by the IndyCar officials and drivers that the race would be abandoned, and that a five-lap salute would be held in his honour, with Wheldon's number 77 being displayed alone at the top of the scoring pylon. After his death, Michael Andretti revealed that Wheldon had signed with Andretti Racing for a multi-year deal to replace driver Danica Patrick. Information From Wikipedia. I have another video on this of the confirmation on Live TV.
