New York Watch: Position Limit [01:24]
George Steinbrenner, the principal owner of the New York Yankees who passed away Tuesday at the age of 80, was renowned for his will to win, and Position Limit helped keep that legacy alive today at Belmont Park when she broke her maiden impressively. Position Limit is a 2-year-old daughter of freshman sire Bellamy Road, who dominated his opponents in the 2005 Grade 1 Wood Memorial at Aqueduct Racetrack by 17 ½ lengths while racing for Steinbrenner's Kinsman Stable. "I thought it was interesting timing, and obviously Bellamy Road was one of Mr. Steinbrenner's better horses," said Todd Pletcher, who trains Position Limit for Starlight Partners. "It's nice seeing him getting off to a good start as a stallion, and it's a fitting tribute to the man." The 4-1 third choice in today's fourth race, Position Limit raced four wide in fifth around the far turn, seized command from the pacesetter inside the quarter pole, and drew off under a vigorous hand ride in the stretch to prevail by 6 ¾ lengths. The final time for 5 ½ furlongs in the mud was 1:04.70. Bellamy Road, who finished seventh in the Grade 1 Kentucky Derby and second in the Grade 1 Travers in his only two efforts following the Wood, stood the 2010 breeding season at Pauls Mill in Versailles, Ky. for a $10000 fee. With today's victory, Position Limit became the second winner for the 8-year-old son of Concerto. "We were very pleased with the way she had trained," said Pletcher. "She was a first-time starter who we thought ...

1999 Haskell Invitational Grade I [04:49]
It was a three-wide move on the last turn, made with parabolic precision, that not only dusted Cat Thief and Forestry, but perhaps also kicked dirt on any sentiments that Charismatic had won the crown as the best 3-year-old in the nation. The horse responsible was Menifee. His hardly surprised rider was Pat Day, in the $1 million Grade I Haskell Invitational today at Monmouth Park. What does it mean? That three at-the-wire finishes can be deceptive. That anyone who penciled in Charismatic, the courageous Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner, as the best of his generation needs an eraser. That Menifee's trainer, Elliott Walden, concluded a day that those with professional horse fantasies dream about. Less than an hour before Menifee ran down a pair of West Coast speedsters here, Walden's Ecton Park romped in the mud and ran away from a Grade II Jim Dandy field at Saratoga Springs. ''I knew he had won at the eighth pole,'' Walden said of Menifee's fifth career victory, his third this year, to move the colt's earnings past $1.5 million. The 33056 people who braved gloomy skies and early-morning showers may not have been so sure. The Derby and Preakness runner-up, Menifee still trailed a game Cat Thief, who was neck to neck with a determined Forestry in the stretch. ''I felt very good all the way, to be honest with you,'' said Day, who won his first Haskell and ran Menifee's record over the second-place Cat Thief to 5-0. ''I think if we run three more times, Menifee would beat ...

1997 Wood Memorial Stakes [02:37]
Despite the steady rain that nearly forced him to withdraw, and despite the fears of his handlers that he might work too hard, Captain Bodgit won the Wood Memorial at Aqueduct yesterday with a finishing kick that confirmed his status as the favorite for the Kentucky Derby. The star colt with the funny-looking foreleg overcame the weather and his handlers' worries to run the third-fastest time in the 72 years of the Wood. He covered the mile and one-eighth in 1:481/5 , finishing two lengths in front of Accelerator and three in front of Smokin Mel. It was 3 1/2 more lengths back to the second choice, Ordway. And by then Captain Bodgit was flying through the mud at the close of a brilliant performance. The Wood was the centerpiece of three major preps yesterday for the Kentucky Derby. There were 28 contenders in all, but favorites won all three: Pulpit took the Blue Grass at Keeneland in Lexington, Ky., and Crypto Star won the Arkansas Derby at Hot Springs while Captain Bodgit was scoring his success at Aqueduct. Captain Bodgit, a son of Saint Ballado, has now met almost every test for the Derby: he has won the Florida Derby and the Wood; he has won around two turns; he has demonstrated a winning kick in the final furlong and he has run and won on a heavy track. Now, all he has to do is do it again on May 3 against a huge field of perhaps 18 to 20 horses at Churchill Downs. ''He's just a super horse,'' said Gary Capuano, who trains Captain Bodgit for the Team Valor syndicate ...

1997 Blue Grass Stakes Grade I [00:55]
There was a threat of rain. There was nervousness over a recent loss in Florida. It was a new race over a new track, and there were several new shooters trying to knock him off. But none of Pulpit's potential problems materialized. It was as if divine intervention was bestowed upon the colt, who resurrected his standing among the nation's leading 3-year-olds with an emphatic victory today in the Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland Race Course. Pulpit romped to a 3 1/2-length victory over Acceptable to set up a dramatic rematch with his archrival, Captain Bodgit, in the Kentucky Derby three weeks from today. Captain Bodgit and Pulpit split two meetings in Florida this winter, then went their separate ways today. One hour before Pulpit's victory, Captain Bodgit took the Wood Memorial at Aqueduct in New York. ''Now we'll find out who's best,'' said Pulpit's trainer, Frank Brothers. Pulpit was at his best today. He was making his first start since his first career loss, which came when he ran second to Captain Bodgit in last month's Florida Derby. He was running for the first time anywhere other than Gulfstream Park. Two colts from California, Stolen Gold and King Crimson, were flown here to offer a fresh challenge. And overnight rain left the track muddy for the day's first race. But the combination of blustery winds and late-afternoon sunshine dried out the track. It was fast, and so was Pulpit. Pulpit stalked the early pace-setter, Jules, through comfortable fractions of 233/5 ...
