Horse racing oddity: jockey misjudges distance [03:22]
This race on May 16, 2004 is very entertaining. The Hasta la Vista Handicap at Turf Paradise in Arizona is run at what today is an unusually long distance of 1 7/8 miles. This requires two full circuits of the course, rather than the usual one time around in most races. Unfortunately for jockey Jorge Carreno, he forgets that minor detail, creating a very unusual sitation.

Horse racing oddity: incredible stretch run [06:18]
Donnaguska, a first time starter owned by Billy Hays and trained by Joe Woodard, makes a remarkable stretch run to win her debut by two and a quarter lengths at Hawthorne Race Course on October 23, 2008. As track announcer Peter Galassi noted, Donnaguska was "far, far, far, far back" early under jockey Israel Ocampo. The three-year-old daughter of Yonaguska was sent off at 17-1, the second longest shot in the field of nine. She is number three, but for most of the video that doesn't matter because you won't see her. According to the official chart she was about 23 1/2 lengths behind at the top of the stretch, meaning she ran her final quarter-mile in roughly :21 1/5.

Horse racing oddity: horse running the wrong way [04:50]
Things became very scary at Louisiana Downs on September 4, 2011, when Secretfly unseated his rider at the start of the ninth race. Thankfully no horse or rider was hurt. The head-on replay follows at 2:40, and offers a much better look at what happened. Following a stewards inquiry, the race was declared a no contest and all wagers were refunded. Travis Stone is the announcer.
