1998 Kentucky Derby: Full ABC Broadcast [01:02:19]
For the second year in a row, and nearly the third, a horse trained by Bob Baffert won the Kentucky Derby as Real Quiet drew clear in the homestretch of Churchill Downs today to win America's premier horse race by half a length over Victory Gallop. For good measure, Baffert took third place with his previously undefeated Indian Charlie. Baffert's two colts also dominated the Santa Anita Derby four weeks ago when Indian Charlie finished first for his fourth straight victory and Real Quiet ran second. This time, they were separated by Victory Gallop, who won the Arkansas Derby three weeks ago over Favorite Trick, the 1997 Horse of the Year, who ran eighth today. But they nonetheless gave Baffert, the exuberant trainer from California, the landmark day of his career before a crowd of 143215, the third largest in the Derby's 124 years. One year ago, Baffert won the Derby with Silver Charm, who went on to win the Preakness before losing the Triple Crown by half a length to Touch Gold in the Belmont Stakes. Two years ago, Baffert came within the length of Grindstone's nose of winning the Derby with Cavonnier, which means he nearly swept the race three years in a row, something that no trainer has accomplished. Five other trainers have won the Derby in successive years, most recently D. Wayne Lukas with Thunder Gulch in 1995 and Grindstone in 1996. ''Hello, again,'' Baffert said hoarsely after the race. ''I don't think I'll ever feel the excitement I did over Silver Charm. But ...

1995 Florida Derby Day & Jerry Bailey's Record Setting 7 Wins [23:38]
Jerry Bailey rode seven winners today at Gulfstream Park but missed the big one by a nose when Suave Prospect lost a photo finish to Thunder Gulch and Mike Smith in the 44th Florida Derby. In a driving duel between the two top horses and jockeys at the track, Thunder Gulch made it two straight in the "Florida triple" series. Only three weeks ago he had been flown from California by D. Wayne Lukas and won the Fountain of Youth Stakes by a neck over Suave Prospect, who is trained by Nick Zito. And the two colts now seem locked in a rivalry that may continue until the Kentucky Derby on May 6, when they will be joined by a delegation from the West. "Right now, Thunder Gulch is king of the hill in the East," Lukas said. "Our horse was game, his horse was game. Both horses took large steps forward. They're like Affirmed and Alydar. But we've got their horse's number. We'll break his heart eventually." To which Zito responded, "There's always Kentucky." But even though he lost the main event by a nose, no rider ever had a better afternoon at Gulfstream Park than Bailey, and few anywhere else. The 37-year-old Texan rode 10 horses and made the winner's circle seven times. Along the way, he broke the track record of six victories set in six races in 1953 by Charlie Burr, and also tied the stakes record of four set in 1988 by Randy Romero, also on Florida Derby day. But he couldn't quite reach the national record of eight, set by seven jockeys, most recently by Pat Day at Arlington ...

NASCAR fan is hit and killed by lightning strike in the parking lot of Pocono Raceway (my response) [01:11]
(my response) Brian Zimmerman, of Moosic, Pa., died as he stood near his car in the parking lot of Pocono Raceway, according to the Monroe County coroner. A woman who answered the phone at Zimmerman's home declined comment. Nine other people were injured during Sunday's violent storm, though it wasn't immediately clear how many might have been struck by lightning. One who had been listed Sunday night in critical condition was upgraded to stable. The crowd of about 85000 was advised over public address systems and through social media to take cover Sunday afternoon when lightning and heavy rain hit the track near the end of the race. But some fans posted on the raceway's Facebook page that they never heard the weather-related announcements. NASCAR spokesman Dave Higdon said Monday that officials are reviewing how the track carried out its emergency procedures. He cautioned against rushing to judgment until all the facts are known. ''Anytime something like this happens, we make sure we look at it again and see if there's anything we should have done different,'' Higdon said. ''It's never a good day for us when someone passes and people are hurt.'' Pocono Raceway president and CEO Brandon Igdalsky expressed sorrow at a news conference Monday afternoon at the track, where a large US flag flew at half-staff. ''Fans are like family to us,'' Igdalsky said, noting that Zimmerman had been coming to races for several years with his friends. He added that he planned to contact ...
