1995 Sword Dancer Invitational Handicap [02:58]
Kiri's Clown, a 6-year-old horse who likes to come busting out of the gate to take the lead and try to hold it, came busting out today and did hold it. And by the length of his neck, against a late rush by Awad, he scored a resounding upset to win the $250000 Sword Dancer Invitational on the Saratoga turf. Not only that, but he broke Fraise's track record of 1992 by two-fifths of a second, running the mile and a half on the inner turf course in 2:252/5 . He also broke the losing streak of his trainer, Phil Johnson, who hadn't saddled a winner in New York State in 68 races going back to April. In between, though, Kiri's Clown traveled to New England in June and won the New Hampshire Sweepstakes. Kiri's Clown gave his latest performance only five days after running seventh in the Daryl's Joy Handicap. Johnson explained in the winner's circle that his horse would rather race every five days than work out every five days. "If you have a good work horse," he said, "you don't do the Daryl's Joy. But he doesn't work very well, and sometimes horses lose interest working." Johnson and his jockey, Mike Luzzi, planned on having the early lead; the only question was whether they would hold it. "We thought we would get the lead," Luzzi said, "but I didn't think we would get it the way he did. Basically, my horse was just galloping along. He got challenged at the three-eighths pole, and then when Awad came to him, he just got real game." When Awad came to him, they had only a few ...

1999 Belmont Stakes - Lemon Drop Kid : Full ABC Broadcast [01:01:11]
Charismatic, standing on the threshold of sweeping the Triple Crown, missed his date with history yesterday when he ran third in the Belmont Stakes behind the 29-1 long shot Lemon Drop Kid. And, worse, in a stunning finish to the saga of the colt who won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness at long odds, Charismatic fractured two bones in his left front leg as he crossed the finish line. The injury did not appear to be life-threatening but it ended his racing career. It also brought a sorrowful close to what had been a rousing day at Belmont Park, with a record crowd of 85818 on hand in perfect weather to see if Charismatic could become the first horse in 21 years to win the Triple Crown. Instead, he became the 15th horse, and the third in three years, to win the Derby and Preakness but fail to cross the finish line first in the mile-and-a-half race. Charismatic, who ran in a claiming race in February before surging to the top of the 3-year-old racing world in the past two months, will undergo surgery late this morning. Dr. Larry Bramlage, a veterinarian from Lexington, Ky., reported that the colt had cracked the cannon bone just above the ankle and had fractured the sesamoid behind it. ''It is not life-threatening,'' Bramlage said, ''but it definitely means his racing career is over. However, he should be fine as a stallion.'' Chris Antley, the jockey who overcame problems of weight and substance abuse and made a roaring comeback aboard Charismatic in the Derby and the ...
