Zo Impressive - 2012 Mother Goose (G1) [02:05]
Zo Impressive took advantage of a tiring pacesetter in Contested and held off a late surge from Disposablepleasure to win Saturday's 56th running of the Grade 1, $300000 Mother Goose at Belmont Park. After breaking sharply from post position 5 under Rajiv Maragh, Zo Impressive was taken back to settle on the outside in third as 1-2 favorite Contested opened up 1 ½ lengths on longshot Wildcat's Smile through a quarter mile in 23.08 and a half in 46.47. Asked for run leaving the five-sixteenths pole, the front-running Acorn winner came up empty. Zo Impressive, meanwhile, was set down to duel with late-running Disposablepleasure, whom she bested by three-quarters of a length. The final time for 1 1/16-miles was 1:44.28 over a track rated good. Kentucky Oaks winner Believe You Can, who tracked the leaders from the inside throughout, finished third, followed by Wildcat's Smile and Contested. A jockey's objection by Ramon Dominguez, the rider of Disposablepleasure, against the winner for alleged interference in the stretch run was disallowed by the stewards.

Mark Valeski - 2012 Peter Pan (G2) [02:14]
After a pair of narrow defeats in Kentucky Derby prep races this spring at Fair Grounds Race Course, Mark Valeski earned his first graded stakes win Saturday afternoon at Belmont Park when he captured the 58th running of the Grade 2, $200000 Peter Pan Stakes, the local springboard to the Grade 1, $1 million Belmont Stakes on June 9. Caught wide out of the gate, Mark Valeski settled well off the rail in midpack as longshot Right to Vote swiftly guided the field through opening fractions of 22.71 and 45.35. Swung four wide turning for home, Mark Valeski was put to a drive through the stretch, wresting the lead away from the pacesetter just past the eighth pole and going on to a 1 ¼-length victory. A determined Right to Vote held sway over Street Life, who closed from last to get third. Mark Valeski's final time for 1 1/8 miles was 1:48.31. Sent off as the 6-5 favorite in the field of 10, he returned $4.70.

Summer Bird - 2009 Belmont Stakes [02:55]
Redemption came from off the pace Saturday afternoon, on a day when speed ruled and youth was served. Hall of Fame jockey Kent Desormeaux, after six failed tries that included the toughest beat in history with Real Quiet in 1998 and last years aborted Triple Crown attempt with Big Brown, capped a four-win day with his first Belmont Stakes victory aboard Drs. Kalarikkal and Vilasini Devi Jayaramans 11-1 longshot Summer Bird before a crowd of 52861 at Belmont Park. Summer Bird paid $25.80 to win. I left the house this morning with a will to win this race, because it means beauty, class and elegance, Desormeaux said after Summer Bird brought him through the middle of the lane for a 2 ¾-length victory over Dunkirk in the 141st running of the 1½-mile Test of the Champion the longest and oldest leg of racings Triple Crown for three-year-olds. Mine That Bird, the 50-1 Kentucky Derby winner, Preakness runner-up and Belmont Stakes post-time favorite, was third, followed by Charitable Man, Luv Gov, Flying Private, Brave Victory, Mr. Hot Stuff, Chocolate Candy and Miners Escape.
