1997 Dwyer Stakes [01:09]
A new star raced into the 3-year-old picture at Belmont Park yesterday, when Behrens won the Dwyer Stakes and extended his baby winning streak to three races and ended the winning streak of Banker's Gold at four. A son of Pleasant Colony, Behrens won his first two races by a combined margin of almost eight lengths, and, although he had raced only twice in six months, dazzled people with his speed in workouts. This time, he flashed his speed in a stakes race, roaring from fifth place to second at the head of the homestretch and blowing into the lead and widening it to 1 1/4 lengths over Glitman, who had 7 lengths on the favorite, Banker's Gold. ''He's just an outstanding horse, and he keeps proving it to us,'' said James Bond, who trains Behrens. ''The scary thing is that he's still only learning to run.'' Behrens did not race last year at 2, made his debut at Gulfstream Park in Florida in January, won again at Belmont in May and confronted Banker's Gold yesterday in the Dwyer. It is an 80-year-old race that has been won by superstars like Man o' War and Native Dancer, and it seemed likely that Banker's Gold might make it a milestone in his career. But, with Eddie Maple in the saddle, he stalked the fast pace set by Glitman and Smokin Mel, and could not overtake them in the stretch. Meanwhile, Behrens, carrying five fewer pounds, bided his time under Jerry Bailey and swept home. Behrens ran the mile and a sixteenth in 1 minute 42 1/5 seconds, paid $5.90 for $2 to win ...

2000 Suburban Handicap - Lemon Drop Kid [00:34]
Lemon Drop Kid took some fast and serious strides toward racing's year-end honors yesterday when he outran Behrens by two and a half lengths and won the $500000 Suburban Handicap at Belmont Park in the second-fastest time in the history of the 114-year-old race. He not only defeated Behrens, who ran second to the world-class Dubai Millennium in the $5 million Dubai World Cup in March, but also flew the mile and a quarter in 1:584/5 . That time was just three-fifths of a second off the track record, set in the Suburban in 1991 by In Excess. And Lemon Drop Kid also became only the fourth horse to race a mile and a quarter in the Suburban in less than two minutes. Edgar Prado, who also rode Lemon Drop Kid to a seven-length score in the Brooklyn Handicap last month, made no secret of the fact that he had kept Behrens blocked on the rail. ''I knew I had Behrens pinned on the inside, and at the top of the stretch, I wanted to get the jump on him,'' Prado said. ''My horse just took off, and I knew Behrens was chasing me.'' Scotty Schulhofer, who trains Lemon Drop Kid, conceded that ''the position we were in didn't hurt us.'' ''He just keeps on running,'' Schulhofer said. ''He's finally got focused, and Prado is the big thing as far as the improvements go.'' And Jeanne Vance, who owns Lemon Drop Kid, said: ''This one is extra special because Behrens was in the race.'' Both Schulhofer and James Bond, the trainer of Behrens, predicted a return match in the Whitney at Saratoga on ...

1994 San Luis Rey Stakes - Bien Bien
San Juan Capistrano, but we don't know," Gonzalez said. "We'll see. "He trained beautifully for this race and it was fortunate that we got a firm turf course. It was like a workout, really, I guess this is one of the easiest races he's won." McCarron was happy to be back aboard after skipping the horse's last three races because of suspensions and a commitment to Hill Pass in the Santa Anita Handicap. "That sucker is an iron horse," McCarron said. "This was testimony to how well Paco keeps ...
