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 ...

1991 Haskell Invitational [02:41]
Unraced for seven weeks following his Belmont Stakes victory, Hansel ran as if he were an out-of-shape athlete in the Monmouth Park stretch today. The sleek-looking bay finished more than 13 lengths back, in third place, in the $500000 Haskell Invitational Handicap, which was captured by Lost Mountain. Corporate Report was second by a head. The crowd, impressed with Hansel's seven-length victory in the Preakness, which he followed with a gritty head decision over Strike the Gold in the Belmont, poured more than $104000 onto his nose. Hansel went off as the 1-2 favorite. Although placed close to the front-running Corporate Report, he faded in the stretch. "Hansel ran a good race but, you know, he was away seven weeks and they didn't have him at his best," suggested the winning jockey, Craig Perret. Jerry Bailey, aboard Hansel, found he had a luxury horse who had suddenly lost the greatness he displayed at Belmont on June 8. "When Corporate Report moved, I asked Hansel for more, but he was just empty," said Bailey. There may have been another factor in addition to Hansel's layoff. Hansel couldn't get to the front even though he broke from the rail. Instead, Corporate Report quickly took command, while Private Man raced on the outside, boxing in Hansel. "He's a funny horse," Perret said of Hansel. "He's comfortable when free, but confused when boxed in." The track was labeled "good" after being "muddy" for the early races. The first five races were captured by front-runners ...

1993 Strub Stakes Grade I [02:52]
Siberian Summer paid $34.40 to win Sunday, accounting for the fourth-biggest payoff in Strub history and the largest since Swing Till Dawn, catching the kind of muddy track that he loved, won the 1983 running and paid $78.80. War Heim holds the record with his $98 payoff in 1971. Bertrando, sent off at 3-10 in betting that included 20455 fans at the track, became one of the biggest disappointments in Strub history, a list that includes Damascus, who was 1-5 while losing by a head to Most Host in 1968. Before Sunday, Siberian Summer was best known for his ability to finish second. His 14-race record going into the Strub consisted of three victories--none in a stake--and seven seconds. Even a switch to grass didn't improve his form against the top competition; he was ninth in last year's Del Mar Derby and eighth in the Hollywood Derby. On Thursday, the day before entries were due for the Strub, mcanally had considered skipping the race. "We almost didn't run," the 60-year-old trainer said, "but then I considered who we had to beat. Bertrando really isn't a mile-and-a-quarter horse. Then there was Star Recruit and Major Impact, but after that, the field wasn't really that tough." So mcanally called Siberian Summer's breeder and owner, Mahmoud Fustok, in Florida and they agreed to run. The decision was worth $275000, more than doubling what the gray Siberian Express-Mia Karina colt had earned. Corey Nakatani rode Siberian Summer for the first time, settling the colt into ...

Rachel Alexandra workout 8/24 [01:26]
seeking to become the first ever female to win the Woodward warranted an increase in purse." Asmussen, accompanied by Jacksons wife, Barbara Banke, made the announcement after Rachel Alexandra worked six furlongs in 1:11.84 over a muddy main track at Saratoga, ending speculation she would face 3-year-old colts again in the Grade 1, $1 million Shadwell Travers on Saturday or older fillies in the Grade 1, $400000 Personal Ensign the following day. Instead, her stablemate, Jacksons Grade 2 ...
