New York Watch: Ruthenia [02:01]
Ruthenia has a high bar to clear if she wants to duplicate the success achieved by her full-sister, but an impressive debut at Belmont Park is a pretty good start. Despite her pedigree, the daughter of Pulpit was dismissed at 20-1 on Monday in a one-mile event on Belmont's Widener turf course, and the full-sister to the 2005 Grade 1 Del Mar Oaks winner Rutherienne made her doubters pay by drawing off under Alan Garcia's hand encouragement to win by 3 ½ lengths. Ruthenia, who covered the distance in 1:37.40 and ran the final quarter mile in a snappy 23.34 seconds, becomes the latest horse to join the New York Watch, which profiles up-and-comers that have recently cleared the maiden ranks at Aqueduct, Belmont Park, and Saratoga. "There was no reason for her to have been a long price," trainer Christophe Clement said of Ruthenia, who races for her breeder, Virginia Kraft Payson. "Good for the guys who picked her! She had trained well and had shown a good turn of foot in the morning. Even though she is smaller, she moved well." Clement and Payson were also the team behind Rutherienne, who won 10 stakes in her career, including the Sugar Plum Time, Grade 3 Sands Point, Grade 3 Lake George, and Grade 3 Noble Damsel Handicap in New York. Off the board just four times in 20 starts, Rutherienne earned nearly $1.3 million. "Rutherienne was also small," said Clement when asked to compare Ruthenia to her older sister. "She was sometimes difficult to train, as some of the Pulpits are ...

1996 Jockey Club Gold Cup + Post Race [09:35]
Cigar made a noble but losing farewell to racing in New York yesterday when he was beaten by a head by Skip Away in the $1 million Jockey Club Gold Cup. It was only the second time in his last 19 races that the 6-year-old super horse had been outrun, but it also was the second time in his last three starts. So, age, luck and fast horses may be catching up to him. He gave it a special poignancy by staging a valiant rally through the homestretch, but missed by the length of Skip Away's head. And while it took two horses to spring the trap that ended Cigar's 16-race winning streak at Del Mar in August, this time it took just one very swift, very tough 3-year-old. As they streaked to the finish, Skip Away was fighting on the inside to keep his lead and Cigar was charging on the outside to snatch it. And flying at their heels came two other 3-year-old stars, Louis Quatorze, two lengths behind Cigar, and Editor's Note, one length behind Louis Quatorze. ''I'd just be whining if I made excuses,'' said Bill Mott, who trains Cigar for Allen Paulson of California. ''I don't feel uncomfortable about anything that's happened. I thought he ran a pretty darned good race. He had a little more left to do at the half-mile pole than he normally has to, but that doesn't mean we're making excuses.'' Jerry Bailey, who rode Cigar through his record-tying winning streak, put it bluntly: ''I ran second. I ran into a horse who ran an exceptional race. I have to tip my hat to the winner. I knew it ...

Schooling Jumpers Raw Clips 5.23.2010 [04:21]
So this was my first time showing in jumpers and it was so much fun and JJ was amazing, He was fast but totally controlled and he just flew and there were a couple times when I made stupid judgements of the jumps and he still took them. He loved it I could just tell. We would have done really well, placing atleast in the top 3, if I wasn't such an idiot. The first course, I forgot my last fence. The second one, I missed the finish line because for the first course it had just been a single cone you had to go by but for this one it was two, and the last course I had like a brainfart after the fourth jump. You can't hear me but I was literally yelling "WHERE AM I GOING!?" because I couldn't remember. It was the last class of the day for me though and I'd been showing for like 3-4 hours so it's fine. I had fun and JJ was amazing and that's all that counts.
