Blind Luck's Style Fits for Vanity [05:08]
Once again the winner of the $250000 Vanity Handicap (Grade I) won in last-to-first fashion, as Blind Luck swung wide to pass all five rivals through the stretch as the 9-to-5 second choice and edged 7-to-5 favorite Switch by half a length at the wire. Blind Luck's win was reminiscent of the past three editions of the Vanity, when Zenyatta stormed down the center of the track through the lane to victory after being dead last down the back stretch. "I wasn't happy, but I didn't have much ground to make up and I couldn't get her tucked in the way I wanted to," said jockey Garrett Gomez of the slow early pace that saw the first half mile run in 50.1. "She loves to run in the lane and she has a heck of a turn of foot." The final time of 1:50.4 was the slowest Vanity ever in its 60th running, resulting in a bunched field at the finish with just three lengths separating all six runners. "I think Garrett was a little bit closer today than he ordinarily would have been and the only thing I said to him before the race was to try to watch the pace and see what happens," said trainer Jerry Hollendorfer. "I think Bob (Baffert) did a great job trying to slow the pace down with his speed filly (American Story)." Despite setting the slow pace, American Story faded to last behind Miss Match, St Trinians and She's Cheeky. Last year's three-year-old champion has now won 11-of-20 career starts and pushed her earnings over $2.8 million. This was her first race off of a dirt surface in over a ...

1994 Travers Stakes - Holy Bull [02:11]
The Bull outran the Cat and the rabbit and everybody else today when he won the 125th Travers Stakes by a neck over Concern and took his longest strides on the road to the championship of racing's 3-year-old division. It was a smashing performance by Holy Bull, who withstood a furious closing rush by Concern, the winner of the Arkansas Derby, and won for the 11th time in 13 starts. And then it was 17 lengths of daylight back to Tabasco Cat, the winner of the Preakness and Belmont and the archrival to Holy Bull for the season's honors. "He did it the hard way," said Jimmy Croll, who inherited Holy Bull one year ago and now owns and trains him. "It showed he's all heart." Then he aimed at the skeptics who had insinuated that his Bull was a speed horse miscast as a superstar, and said: "They thought he didn't have the breeding to go a mile and a quarter. They said he couldn't go around two turns. They thought he could win only on the lead. They had a rabbit up front and a closing horse chasing him at the end of a mile and a quarter. Well, he did what he had to do. He answered all the questions." He also answered the question posed this week by D. Wayne Lukas, the trainer of Tabasco Cat, who said: "Look at Holy Bull's record under a microscope. Who was second when he won the Dwyer? Nobody can tell you." Maybe not, but Croll could tell you who ran third behind Holy Bull today, and he said dryly, "Wayne better get a new microscope." This was an adventure for Holy Bull, the ...
