1997 Florida Derby [02:55]
Captain Bodgit stole the thunder from Pulpit yesterday, roaring down the stretch to capture the $500000 Florida Derby and throw the Kentucky Derby watch into an uproar. Pulpit, formerly undefeated and the 2-5 choice, ran well under Shane Sellers to finish second, but he was no match for Captain Bodgit, who authored a bold move around the far turn with Alex Solis, coming from sixth place to prevail by 2 1/2 lengths at 7-2. The time for the mile and an eighth was an ordinary 1:50 3/5, following fractions of :23 1/5, :47 3/5, 1:12 and 1:37 2/5, over a track officially labeled as "fast."

Jeff Gordon Crash Turns Into A Massive Brawl [03:31]
With his No. 15 Toyota still smoking, Clint Bowyer sprinted from his car to the garage to confront Jeff Gordon, who dumped him with two laps remaining in Sunday's Advocare 500. Bowyer's team already was involved in a brawl before the driver attempted to run up into Gordon's No. 24 hauler, but was held back by NASCAR officials and other team members. The incident stemmed from contact between Bowyer and Gordon on Lap 305 when the No. 15 slid up into Gordon's No. 24 while both drivers were battling for fifth place. Gordon limped around the track for several laps before taking out Bowyer and collecting Joey Logano directly in front of Brad Keselowski, who took the points lead with his run at Phoenix International Raceway. "We got used up by Clint several times this year, and enough is enough," Gordon's crew chief Alan Gustafson said. "If you're going to mess with the bull, you're going to get the horns. "That's just ridiculous that a champion would act like that," Bowyer's team owner Michael Waltrip said. NASCAR red-flagged the event to clean up the track. After almost 15 minutes, the race resumed.

1989 Breeders' Cup Classic + Pre & Post Race [34:11]
Sunday Silence grittily held off a desperate late charge by Easy Goer to win the $3 million Breeders' Cup Classic by a neck today at Gulfstream Park. The tight finish of this fourth meeting between the decade's greatest racing rivals brought a crowd of more than 50000 to a roar and settled the sport's major titles. Sunday Silence, who had beaten Easy Goer in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness before Easy Goer trounced him in the Belmont Stakes, is assured of being voted thoroughbred racing's Horse of the Year. Emotions ran high long after the official sign was posted. For Sunday Silence's backers and handlers, this was a long-awaited day of vindication. After the Belmont, their colt had been widely dismissed as only second-best despite holding a 2-1 edge in the rivalry. For Easy Goer's many fans, who made him the 1-2 betting favorite today, the result was flabbergasting. They found some excuses for him, but were devastated to see their colt emerge from this season as merely the second-best 3-year-old instead of being acclaimed as the champion of the decade. It was small consolation for Easy Goer's connections, the Ogden Phipps family and the trainer Shug McGaughey, that they won two of the six earlier Cup races today, with Rhythm in the Juvenile and Dancing Spree in the Sprint. Sunday Silence, a 3-year-old son of Halo and the Understanding mare Wishing Well, paid $6 for $2 to win as the second choice in the Classic betting and ran the mile and a quarter in 2:00 1/5 ...

The 12th annual Travers Celebration -- the premier evening affair at Saratoga Race Course -- returned once again to celebrate the arrival of the 143rd edition of the mid-summer derby on Thursday, August 23. The official party of the Grade 1, $1 million Travers, the Travers Celebration supports the Backstretch Employee Service Team, the Times Union Hope Fund and its newest beneficiary, the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund. The elaborate event featured exquisite food stations and beverage offerings, a live and silent auction, and dancing to live music from the New York Players. Event attendees also had the opportunity to have their photo taken with the official trophy of the Travers. Recently appraised at $425000, the 18k gold permanent trophy of Travers designed by Tiffany & Co. is inscribed with all past winners' names. The Travers Celebration has raised more than $1.1 million for non-profit organizations in the thoroughbred industry and throughout the greater Capital Region since its inception over a decade ago. The 2012 Travers Celebration is co-chaired by Mr. George R. Hearst III, Publisher and CEO of the Times Union newspaper; and Mrs. Sharon Dominguez, wife of Ramon Dominguez, winner of the 2011 and 2012 Eclipse Award for Outstanding Jockey. The 2012 Travers Celebration is sponsored by Macy's, Ketel One Vodka, NEWS 10, the Times Union and The New York Racing Association, Inc.
