New York Watch: Position Limit [01:24]
George Steinbrenner, the principal owner of the New York Yankees who passed away Tuesday at the age of 80, was renowned for his will to win, and Position Limit helped keep that legacy alive today at Belmont Park when she broke her maiden impressively. Position Limit is a 2-year-old daughter of freshman sire Bellamy Road, who dominated his opponents in the 2005 Grade 1 Wood Memorial at Aqueduct Racetrack by 17 ½ lengths while racing for Steinbrenner's Kinsman Stable. "I thought it was interesting timing, and obviously Bellamy Road was one of Mr. Steinbrenner's better horses," said Todd Pletcher, who trains Position Limit for Starlight Partners. "It's nice seeing him getting off to a good start as a stallion, and it's a fitting tribute to the man." The 4-1 third choice in today's fourth race, Position Limit raced four wide in fifth around the far turn, seized command from the pacesetter inside the quarter pole, and drew off under a vigorous hand ride in the stretch to prevail by 6 ¾ lengths. The final time for 5 ½ furlongs in the mud was 1:04.70. Bellamy Road, who finished seventh in the Grade 1 Kentucky Derby and second in the Grade 1 Travers in his only two efforts following the Wood, stood the 2010 breeding season at Pauls Mill in Versailles, Ky. for a $10000 fee. With today's victory, Position Limit became the second winner for the 8-year-old son of Concerto. "We were very pleased with the way she had trained," said Pletcher. "She was a first-time starter who we thought ...

1993 京都大賞典(G2) メジロマックイーン レコード走破 芦毛の名馬 [02:55]
京都大賞典では、2分22秒7という当時のコースレコードで、レガシーワールドに3馬身半差をつけ優勝。この結果、獲得賞金が史上初の10億円突破となった。しかし、天皇賞(秋)4日前に左前脚部繋靱帯炎を発症、そのまま引退・種牡馬入りが発表され、約1ヶ月後の11月21日、京都競馬場で引退式が行われた。 「無尽蔵」とも言われた豊富なスタミナから、ハイペースの長距離戦でも先行押し切りというレーススタイルで、一般的にステイヤー(長距離得意の馬)と認識されており、「史上最強のステイヤー」とも評される。しかし5歳以降に手綱を執った武豊は、「短距離でも充分に強く、ただ距離が持つだけ」「マイルのGIレースでも勝負になった」と発言している。また、一般に見られる例とは逆に、加齢と共にレースでの落ち着きを失っていったといい、1993年春の天皇賞前には「今のマックイーンに3200mは長すぎます」とも語っていた。 1991年春の天皇賞を勝った時点では、武はその能力について、「平成三強」と呼ばれたオグリキャップ、スーパークリーク、イナリワン (いずれも武が騎乗した)と比較する段階ではないと語っていた。その後、7歳の大阪杯で初めて「三強のような凄味が出てきた」と評し、結果的にラストランとなった京都大賞典の後には「今さら僕がどうのこうの言うレベルじゃない。本当に凄い馬ですよ」と絶賛した。当時、7歳は一般に衰えが見られる年齢とされており、その成長曲線の特殊性が指摘されている。

New York Watch: Hunters Bay [01:59]
Ghostzapper and Smokn Frolic won major races in New York during their racing careers, and their son 3-year-old son now has the opportunity to create his own legacy. Named Hunters Bay, the regally-bred colt became the 11th horse featured in the New York Watch series, which shines the spotlight on promising colts and fillies that have recently cleared the maiden and allowance ranks at Aqueduct Racetrack, Belmont Park, or Saratoga Race Course. Fifth in his debut after breaking slowly at Gulfstream Park on April 10, Hunters Bay was ready to roll today at Belmont Park in his second start. Away alertly this time, he set fractions of :23.14 and :45.57 while receiving pace pressure from Loquacious, began to open on the field at the top of the stretch, and drew clear under a brisk hand ride to score by 8 ½ lengths. We thought stretching him out would be the key and hoped hed break a little better, said Hunters Bays trainer Todd Pletcher, who conditioned Smokn Frolic during her racing days. He was definitely more professional second time out. He comes from a pedigree that makes it look like hell improve going longer. This is a big step forward, and hopefully he continues to improve. He could have a future. Hunters Bay, the 9-2 fifth choice in the field of six, covered the 1 1/16th-mile distance in a snappy 1:41.08. While Pletcher noted how he thought the track was playing on the quick side, winning Jockey John Velazquez was awed nonetheless. They were cooking out there, said ...
