1996 Preakness Stakes - Full ABC Broadcast [01:03:46]
It was the day of sweet revenge in racing: Louis Quatorze won the 121st Preakness Stakes with Pat Day riding, just 10 days after he was replaced as a jockey by trainer D. Wayne Lukas, who watched today while his record streak ended after six straight Triple Crown victories. Day was signed for his ride by Nick Zito, the most vocal critic of Lukas and his hordes of horses. And they scored the coup of the year when Louis Quatorze, 16th in the Kentucky Derby and fifth in the Preakness betting, led every step of the way to outrun Skip Away by three and a quarter lengths. No Derby horse had ever finished so far back and returned two weeks later to win the Preakness. The closest that Lukas got to extending his streak was third place, with Editor's Note. The 8-5 favorite, Cavonnier, trained by Bob Baffert, finished fourth. Lukas, who entered five horses in the Derby and three in the Preakness, also finished fifth with Victory Speech and seventh with Prince of Thieves. Louis Quatorze even supplied some storybook numbers of his own. He ran the mile and three-sixteenths in 1:532/5 on a fast track, matching the record for the race set 12 years ago by Tank's Prospect, with Day in the saddle that day, too. In fact, this was the fifth time that Day had won the Preakness and the third in a row. The colt, a son of Sovereign Dancer, paid $19 for $2 to win and earned $458120 for his owners -- Bill Condren and Joe Cornacchia, who were the owners of other Zito stars like Strike the Gold and ...

1989 Belmont Stakes: Full ABC Broadcast [01:05:24]
Easy Goer finally lived up to his spectacular promise of early spring yesterday when he roared past Sunday Silence on the turn for home and won the 121st Belmont Stakes by eight lengths. In doing so, he prevented Sunday Silence from becoming racing's 12th Triple Crown winner. Earlier this year, Easy Goer looked like the next Secretariat, a colt of limitless potential who might set new standards of excellence. Then, after second-place finishes in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, Easy Goer seemed likelier to emulate his father, Alydar, who in 1978 became the only horse to finish second in all three Triple Crown races, losing each leg of the Triple Crown to Affirmed. But yesterday, there was talk of Secretariat again. Easy Goer's winning Belmont time of 2:26.01 under Pat Day over a fast but not unusually quick track was the second-fastest Belmont ever, behind only Secretariat's 1973 world-record clocking of 2:24. Easy Goer's performance ranks as one of the most impressive in the history of the sport. $1 Million Bonus Sunday Silence actually earned more in defeat than the winner's purse of $413520, getting a $1 million Triple Crown bonus for the best overall record in the three races. But he would have earned $2.5 million more, and a certain place in the sport's Hall of Fame, with a victory. Instead, he might be considered only the second-best 3-year-old of this year unless he can beat Easy Goer again. Easy Goer, a chestnut-colored son of Alydar and Relaxing, bred and ...

1996 Kentucky Derby - Full Broadcast [01:07:53]
Sore heel and all, outside post and all, Unbridled's Song set the stage for a storybook finish to the 122d Kentucky Derby today when he swept into the lead with a quarter of a mile to go. But in the next 26 seconds, he tired and faded to fifth place while Grindstone mounted a gripping duel against Cavonnier and won the Derby by a nose before 142668 roaring spectators. It was the closest finish in a Derby in 37 years and the first time in 63 years that a horse won the Derby after only five races. But it was the 17th straight time the favorite had floundered. And it was the sixth straight victory in the Triple Crown series for D. Wayne Lukas, who trained 5 of the 19 horses for three owners and won it for William T. Young of Lexington, Ky., who had tried six times to win the Derby and finally did in a photo finish. The finish was the tightest since Tomy Lee outreached Sword Dancer by the length of his nose in the 1959 Derby, and not even Lukas, the most successful trainer in racing history, could pick the winner. "It was so emotional in Mr. Young's box," he related. "We jumped up and started hugging and congratulating one another. Then it struck me, and I thought, 'Maybe we didn't even win.' " But they did, and there was irony as well as melodrama in it because their dark brown colt is also a son of Unbridled, winner of the 1990 Derby -- yes, a son of Unbridled, just like Unbridled's Song. Both horses were foaled in 1993, both ran in the Derby, but Unbridled's Song weakened ...

1997 Preakness Stakes - Full Broadcast [01:08:08]
Silver Charm, who won the Kentucky Derby over Captain Bodgit by the length of his gray head, provided a smashing encore today when he won the 122d Preakness by the same head over Free House, with Captain Bodgit third by another head in a three-horse blanket finish. And he set the stage for the Belmont Stakes in three weeks, when he will be racing to become the first colt in 19 years to sweep the Triple Crown. The three rivals re-enacted their photo-finish performances of two weeks ago before 88594 spectators at Pimlico Race Course with a slight reshuffling of the order behind Silver Charm -- but with the same tingling drive to the wire -- in the closest Preakness in 65 years. The top three once more delivered a formful race, outrunning the leading outsider, Touch Gold, who did not appear in the Derby and who stumbled badly at the start of the Preakness. He closed to finish fourth, within 1 1/4 lengths of the three front-runners flying at the head of the field of 10. 'And we're going for the Triple Crown,'' shouted Bob Lewis, the California beer distributor who owns Silver Charm with his wife, Beverly. ''We need this badly in thoroughbred racing. May the best horse win at Belmont Park.'' Silver Charm is the first horse to have a chance at the Triple Crown in the Belmont since 1989, when Sunday Silence lost the Belmont to Easy Goer, whom he had outrun in the Derby and the Preakness. Bob Baffert, the white-haired, blithe spirit of racing who trains Silver Charm, has waited ...
