New York Watch: Flawless [01:46]
Flawless lived up to the lofty expectations implied by her name, drawing off to 13 ¼-length debut triumph at Belmont Park to become the 12th horse featured in the New York Watch series, which shines the spotlight on promising colts and fillies that have recently cleared the maiden and allowance ranks at Aqueduct Racetrack, Belmont Park, or Saratoga Race Course. The Peter Blum homebred was no secret in todays second race, going off as the 11-10 favorite. With Kent Desormeaux in the irons, she broke on top and led through a half of 46.57. Two opponents lined up to her outside nearing the quarter pole, but the crowds selection turned away those challengers and needed only mild urging in the stretch to spurt clear to a dominant victory over runner-up Click Your Heels, a full-sister to the 2004 Grade 1 Wood Memorial winner Tapit. Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott believes the best is yet to come from Flawless, who covered seven furlongs in 1:23.71 over a main track that had been playing on the slow side. She wasnt cranked. She was only half ready, Mott said with a grin. Shes worked very well and has a lot of ability. Mott said Flawless will go through her allowance conditions before she competes in a stakes race. With as well as she ran on the dirt today, well leave her there for now, added Mott. It looked like another furlong wouldnt hurt her.

1998 Thoroughbred Racing Hall Of Fame Inductees [02:21]
Ansel Williamson, the onetime slave who trained the first winner of the Kentucky Derby in 1875, was inducted into the thoroughbred Hall of Fame today as a legend of racing's past. He was joined by 45-year-old Bill Mott, who saddled Cigar and is a legend of the present, the youngest trainer ever enshrined. ''It came awfully early in life,'' Mott said, sounding a bit awed. ''It was never planned; it was never expected.'' Racing put its best foot forward for its 43d annual ceremony, which attracted a standing-room crowd of 1200 under a tent pitched on a field next to the National Museum of Racing across Union Avenue from the Saratoga Race Course, which is booming in its 130th year. Dozens of famous trainers and jockeys of the past sat together as footnotes to history, applauding the six racing figures being honored. Besides Williamson and Mott, they were Jacinto Vasquez, the jockey who rode 5231 winners, won the Kentucky Derby twice and won 268 stakes races, and three celebrated horses: Riva Ridge, the stablemate of Secretariat and the juvenile champion of 1971, who went on to win the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes in 1972; Bayakoa, the Argentine filly, who became a double champion in the United States by winning 16 of her 21 starts in 1989 and 1990, and Fort Marcy, three times a champion on grass and Horse of the Year for his exploits in 1970. They brought the Hall of Fame roster to 77 jockeys, 71 trainers and 154 horses. But few have been honored as early as Bill ...
