1986 Kentucky Derby - Ferdinand [21:48]
A horse from California was supposed to win the 112th Kentucky Derby, but hardly anybody expected it to be Ferdinand, a 17‚1 shot ridden by a 54-year-old jockey and saddled by a 73-year-old trainer. But at the finish of a slow and roughly run Derby, it was Ferdinand, ridden by Bill Shoemaker and trained by Charlie Whittingham, drawing away to a 21/4- length victory over Bold Arrangement and Broad Brush, with the favored Californians, Snow Chief and Badger Land, off the board. Shoemaker steered Ferdinand, a son of the English triple crown winner Nijinsky II, through heavy traffic from last place to first while covering the mile and a quarter in a dull 2:024/5. Bold Arrangement, an English colt, won a three-way duel for second place, finishing three-quarters of a length in front of Broad Brush. Snow Chief, the 2‚1 favorite, tired badly to finish 11th after taking a brief lead round the far turn. Ferdinand paid $37.40 for $2 to win, the highest Derby payoff since Gato del Sol, also a Californian, also rallied to win from last place and returned $41.40 in 1982. The race was a sentimental triumph for Shoemaker, who became by far the oldest rider ever to win the race while scoring his fourth Derby triumph, and for Whittingham, a Hall of Fame trainer who had never won a Derby. Artistically, though, it was a less successful Derby run before a crowd of 123891. The winner's time over a fast track was the slowest in 12 years, and more horses had rough trips than honest ones today ...

1986 Belmont Stakes - Part 3 [05:51]
The railbirds began chanting ''Woody! Woody! Woody!'' in midstretch, as Danzig Connection under Chris McCarron pulled away to win the 118th Belmont Stakes yesterday and provide his trainer, Woody Stephens, with his fifth straight and most improbable winner of the final leg of the Triple Crown. Said Stephens: "The track was sloppy for the Belmont and Danzig Connection moved with Charlie's horse (the Charlie Whittingham-trained Ferdinand). He just opened up when they came to him and no one was going to get him if they had gone around again. "I think this win gave me the most satisfaction because here was a horse with a chip in his knee, and I nominated him to all three Triple Crown races knowing I couldn't make the Derby or the Preakness."
