Rightly So - 2010 Ballerina (G1) [01:52]
Rightly So led every step and earned her first Grade 1 win Saturday afternoon at Saratoga Race Course with a front-running, four-length victory over Warbling in the 32nd running of the $250000 Ballerina Stakes. The consistent daughter of Read the Footnotes, never worse than third in 11 lifetime starts, immediately shot to the front when the gates opened for the seven-furlong dash and sashayed unthreatened through opening fractions of 22.46, 44.80 and 1:09.29. Opening up through the final yards under jockey Cornelio Velasquez after a fleeting challenge from Warbling, Rightly So hit the wire in 1:22.58 for her second victory in five starts this year. "My filly broke well and went right to the lead and she finished well, too," said Velasquez, who was aboard for her first graded stakes win in the Grade 3 Bed o' Roses Handicap at Belmont Park on July 5. "I had a lot of horse at the quarter pole, so she really ran a big one. Speed has been holding up well today, and I was fortunate to have a good break and make the lead." Rightly So, who was bred in New York and carries the colors of Zayat Stables, LLC, earned $150000 for the victory, her seventh from 11 lifetime starts, and has now amassed $480050. The fourth choice at 9-2 choice in the field of eight fillies and mares, she returned $11.40 for a $2 win bet.

2008 Hambletonian - Meadowlands Racetrack [02:22]
East Rutherford, NJ --- "If I die now, I got it." That was the happy -- and perhaps relieved -- reaction of part owner, trainer and driver Ray Schnittker, who drove the heavily favored Deweycheatumnhowe to victory, in 1:52, in "it" -- the $1.5 million Hambletonian Final on Saturday at the Meadowlands. USTA/Mark Hall photo Deweycheatumnhowe held off Crazed by a half-length to win the $1.5 million Hambletonian Final on Saturday at the Meadowlands. Schnittker had drawn himself the rail position at this past Tuesday's press conference, and used the innermost starting slot to its best advantage by immediately sprinting to the top. The race, as it unfolded, was nearly void of great drama thereafter: The undefeated trotter raced on top through fractions of :26.4, :55 and 1:23.2 with Crazed, the second choice of the crowd, right behind. The sole challenge came from a longshot, Velocity Hall (David Miller), who raced in the first-over position on the backstretch, but who was easily held at bay by the winner. At the top of the stretch, driver Tim Tetrick came out from behind "Dewey's" cover with Crazed, and made one move towards an upset -- but fell a half-length short of victory. Make It Happen (Daniel Dube) closed in the stretch and finished third, 3-1/4 lengths behind, and Celebrity Secret (Brian Sears) finished fourth. In speaking with NBC Sports commentator Donna Barton Brothers, just a few moments after the win, Schnittker said, "I don't think the front end was that great ...

2009 Lexington Stakes - Advice [02:05]
Six weeks ago WinStar Farm looked as though it would be without a starter in the upcoming Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I). Now, the powerful outfit could have three, the final potential starter coming thanks to a eye-catching, last-to-first victory by Advice in the $300000 Coolmore Lexington Stakes (gr. II) April 18 on the Keeneland Polytrack. WinStar, which has had two Derby starters in each of the past three years, also owns Lanes End Stakes (gr. II) winner Hold Me Back and California-based Mr. Hot Stuff. Both colts appear headed to Louisville. Advice, who had only a maiden win to show from five lifetime starts, broke from post 11 in the 1 1/16-mile Lexington, the final major Derby prep. He was immediately steered toward the fence by Garrett Gomez, and the son of Chapel Royal was content to save ground at the back of the field until the late stages of the final turn. Still behind a wall of horses entering the lane, Advice was swung wide by Gomez for his winning move. Now in striking position at the top of the lane, the dark bay or brown colt set his sights on Square Eddie, who had made his own powerful move around the far turn to take a comfortable lead in upper stretch. Advice stormed to the front inside the sixteenth-pole and powered home for a one length score. "I actually had a good trip from the 11-hole," said Gomez. "(Square Eddie) kind of got left (at the starting gate), it looked like. I just kind of clocked him the whole way and followed him ...
