1989 Norfolk Stakes [00:51]
Wayne Lukas saddled Grand Canyon Sunday for a 1 1/2-length victory, and the next race for the $825000 yearling is the Breeders' Cup competition for 2-year-old colts, which will be run Nov. 4 at Gulfstream Park. "Capote went into the Breeders' Cup more seasoned than this colt, but this horse is a lot stronger than Capote was," Lukas said. "The thing is, though, it's been tough to evaluate the 2-year-olds this year. "We won't be able to tell until we get them all on the same track. You'll have to take a hard look at the past performances before you can sort them out." Grand Canyon, who is by Fappiano out of Champagne Ginny, a L'Enjoleur mare, may be joined by two horses from Lukas' New York division--Richard R. and Sir Richard Lewis--in the Juvenile. Chris McCarron, who rode Grand Canyon in the Norfolk, was aboard Richard R. for his fourth-place finish in the Champagne at Belmont Park Saturday. Single Dawn, trying to give trainer Ron McAnally his third major victory in two days, finished second to Grand Canyon, 3 1/2 lengths ahead of the third-place finisher, 62-1 shot Due to the King. The crowd of 31319 had to wait several minutes before the stewards disallowed a foul claim by Corey Nakatani, the rider of Due to the King, who said his mount lost momentum when Grand Canyon came over in front of them in mid-stretch. Grand Canyon collected $166440 of the $277440 purse for Lukas and his partner, William T. Young of Lexington, Ky. Grand Canyon ran the 1 1/16 miles in 1:43 1/5 ...

What a thrill, being part-owner through a syndicate of this thoroughbred mare, who has done what 90% of thoroughbred horses never do: win a race at a major race course! And what a journey it's been to reach this point, to be able to enjoy these thrilling moments even while Dementia/Alzheimer's disease has been trying to sap and destroy my mental faculties over the past four years while I have been collating these memoirs of the participants, who have played their respective parts in my life's journey.

Lewis Hammilton last 5 Laps GP ABU DHABI 2012 [07:10]
Lewis Hammilton last 5 Laps GP ABU DHABI 2012 LEWIS HAMMILTON POLE POSITION Lewis Carl Davidson Hamilton,[1] MBE (born 7 January 1985) is a British Formula One racing driver from England, currently racing for the McLaren team. He is the 2008 Formula One World Champion. Hamilton was born in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.[2] In December 1995, at the age of ten, he approached McLaren team principal Ron Dennis at the Autosport Awards ceremony and told him, "I want to race for you one day ... I want to race for McLaren." Less than three years later McLaren and Mercedes-Benz signed him to their Young Driver Support Programme.[3] After winning the British Formula Renault, Formula Three Euroseries, and GP2 championships on his way up the racing career ladder,[3] he drove for McLaren in 2007, making his Formula One debut 12 years after his initial encounter with Dennis. Hamilton's contract for the McLaren driver development program made him the youngest ever driver to secure a contract which later resulted in a Formula One drive.[4] Coming from a mixed background, with a black father and white mother,[3][5] Hamilton is often labelled "the first black driver in Formula One",[2][3][5][6][7] although Willy T. Ribbs tested an F1 car in 1986.[8] He is also the first driver of black heritage to win a major race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in any discipline. In his first season in Formula One, Hamilton set numerous records, while finishing second in the 2007 Formula One Championship, just ...
