The Gravesend, Brooklyn Handicap 1904 [07:21]
The Brooklyn Handicap in Gravesend, Coney Island, Brooklyn, May 26, 1904 American Biograph & Mutoscope Co. Camera: GW "Billy" Bitzer Coney Island's Gravesend Race Track opened in 1887 and remained in operation until 1910. The first 'Handicap' was a 1 1/4 miles left-handed race on dirt and became part of the 'Handicap Triple' which today is preceded by the Metropolitan Handicap and followed by the Suburban Handicap. The Brooklyn Handicap is an American Thoroughbred horse race run annually in early June at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York, on Long Island. It currently is a Grade II event open to three-year-olds and up willing to race one and one-half miles on dirt. The first segment of this film begins with the horses and their entourages entering the track and getting organized. The handicap seen here begins at 4:00 viewed in five edits, each view is from a stationary camera with virtually no panning. The racing segment itself lasts two minutes with the last minute of film focused on The Picket in what I presume is the winners circle. The Picket was ridden by Jockey Oscar Helgesen who took the prize in 2:06.60. The Picket was trained by Carroll B. Reid and owned by Waldeck Stable. Four horses have won the Handicap Triple: Whisk Broom II (1913), Tom Fool (1953), Kelso (1961), Fit to Fight (1984). 01/05/12 - 3

State of Play - 2011 With Anticipation (G2) [02:01]
Well-rated on the lead, State of Play turned back Optimizer's stretch bid to win Saratoga Race Course's Grade 2, $150000 With Anticipation for 2-year-olds on Thursday. State of Play cleared up front, dictating fractions of 24.24, 49.78 and 1:14.64 before Optimzer drew to the pacesetter's throatlatch with a furlong to travel. Given left-handed encouragement by Ramon Dominguez, State of Play brushed off that challenge to prevail by a half-length. The final time for 1 1/16 miles over the firm Mellon turf course was 1:43.97. The With Anticipation was State of Play's first start around two turns, having come from just off the pace to win a 5 ½-furlong turf sprint on July 27 at the Spa.

New York Watch: Buffum [02:04]
The progeny of Bernardini created a lot of buzz in the sales ring as yearlings, with three selling for over $1 million. One member of that trio, Buffum, has joined the New York Watch, which profiles up-and-comers that have recently cleared the maiden ranks at Aqueduct, Belmont Park, and Saratoga, after winning his debut today at Belmont. Buffum -- purchased for $1.2 million at the 2009 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Yearling sale by Darley Stable, which bred and campaigned Bernardini, the 2006 Champion Three-Year-Old Colt -- went off at 8-1 and raced three lengths off the lead in fourth as Rock Hard Nicky set solid fractions of 22.40 and 45.54. After taking over with three-eighths left, Buffum was set down by David Cohen in upper stretch, drifted out under left-handed urging inside the final furlong, and was all out to hold off Cool Blue Red Hot by a nose. Buffum, who completed the one-mile distance in 1:36.85, was 7 ¼ lengths clear of longshot third-place finisher Acadian Blues. "We had high expectations for him before the race with him being by a champion horse," said trainer Tom Albertrani, who also conditioned the colt's sire. "His works were always promising, and we were expecting to see him run as well as he did today." Despite the small margin of victory, Albertrani believes Buffum has a promising future. "It looked like the horse was traveling very smoothly and easily down the backside," said Albertrani. "He took the lead quite easily and managed to hold off a late charge ...

2009 Sham Stakes - The Pamplemousse [04:15]
Trainer Julio Canani insists he doesn't have Derby fever yet. But after the way his The Pamplemousse glided to victory as the 1-2 choice in the $200000 Sham Stakes (gr. III) at Santa Anita Feb. 28, that's going to be more difficult to believe as time marches on toward the first Saturday in May. He is a nice horse," Canani said after watching The Pamplemousse draw away in the stretch. "Every race, this horse is improving more." Victory for The Pamplemousse, with his long, fluid strides, seemed never in doubt as he bounded effortlessly over the Pro-Ride en route to a six-length victory in the 1 1/8-mile Sham. Fractions were decent -- :23.08, :46.51, and 1:10.29 -- as the front-running gray son of Kafwain appeared to widen his advantage at every call for jockey Alex Solis. The Pamplemousse took command over runner-up Take the Points leaving the final turn. Solis delivered one left-handed crack of the whip mid-stretch, then hand-rode the two-time stakes winner to the wire for the easiest of victories in a sharp time of 1:47.86. It was the third straight victory for The Pamplemousse, who appears ready to challenge Pioneerof the Nile for Southern California supremacy in the 3-year-old ranks. Ive never ridden anything like him," Solis said. "The way hes been training, I expected something like this. He has such a high cruising speed and hes getting more and more amazing. He has such a good mind and he was real relaxed the whole way. "If you want to get an idea of how hell do ...
