Olympic Opening Ceremony 1956 Stockholm Equestrian Games (Amateur Footage) [02:23]
After the IOC awarded the Games of the XVIth Olympiad to Melbourne in Victoria, Australia they learned that Australian quarantine laws required a six-month quarantine period for horses entering the country. As the six-month quarantine made it impractical for competitors horses to be transported to Australia, this precluded Melbourne from being able to host the equestrian events at the 1956 Olympic Games. It was decided, actually in violation of the Olympic Charter, to contest separate Equestrian Olympic Games in Stockholm, Sweden, from 10 through 17 June 1956. At the 50th IOC Session in Athens on 13 May 1954, Stockholm was chosen to host the Equestrian Olympics over Paris, France; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Berlin, Germany; and Los Angeles, California, USA. The 1956 Equestrian Games were held without major political incidents, although some would occur a few months later and affect the Games in Melbourne in November. The opening ceremony was quite unusual as all competitors came in on their mounts, including the flag bearers. Hans Wikne brought the Olympic Flame into the stadium on horseback and lit the main torch. Karin Lindberg and Henry Eriksson held lighted torches, ran towards the stadium tower with the torches and lit flames there. Sweden's Henri Saint Cyr recited the oath of the athletes while on his horse, and later won two gold medals in individual and team dressage. This was matched by Germany's Hans Günter Winkler, who won gold medals in the individual and team ...

Better Lucky - 2012 Sands Point (G2) [02:10]
Better Lucky made her turf debut a winning one, taking the lead in deep stretch and holding off the furious late drive of Regalo Mia Monday afternoon at Belmont Park to take the Grade 2, $200000 Sands Point by a nose. The 3-year-old Ghostzapper filly, whose victory over a muddy track in her previous start prompted trainer Tom Albertrani to try her on the turf, saved ground within striking range of pacesetter Preach Tome Daddy as she led through an opening quarter-mile in 25.60 seconds and a half in 49.74. Tipped the outside by jockey Eddie Castro as the field turned for home, Better Lucky moved up to duel for the lead with Zultanite through the stretch, edging clear in the final yards and hitting the wire a heartbeat ahead of the fast-closing Regalo Mia. Her time for 1 1/16 miles over firm turf was 1:42.75.
