1979 Preakness Stakes [09:53]
Last Saturday afternoon at Pimlico following Spectacular Bid's 5�-length victory in the Preakness, one could almost hear the flapping of wings as the last of the colt's detractors took off for parts unknown. Bid ran his best race yet. By picking up first money of $165300, he pushed his bankroll over $1 million to become the youngest millionaire in racing history, and he ran the mile and [3/16]ths in 1:54[1/5], the second-fastest time in a race that is 104 years old. Appearing to toy with four opponents, Spectacular Bid rolled easily to the finish line to a tremendous ovation from his owners' neighbors in Baltimore, where this handsome gray colt has now become as much of a hero as Brooks Robinson, John Unitas and the blue crab. With the first two legs tucked away, Spectacular Bid must now be considered odds-on to become the third Triple Crown winner in the past three years. On June 9, he will try to complete the sweep in the Belmont Stakes. The main question about that race is how many opponents the New York Racing Association can muster to run against him. There won't be a bunch. An hour after the Preakness, LeRoy Jolley, the trainer of fifth-place finisher General Assembly, reflected on what he had witnessed. "There were times when I had doubts about Spectacular Bid," he said. "No more. My horse couldn't have beaten him if he had cut through the infield. I've had enough of running against Spectacular Bid for a while. So has the General. Spectacular Bid's Preakness was ...

New York Watch: Noble Tune [02:00]
Trainer Chad Brown initially thought Noble Tune was destined for the dirt before the colt posted a pair of "exceptional" breezes on the Oklahoma turf course, and on Monday the great-grandson of Serena's Song made it clear that he prefers the grass by unleashing a strong turn of foot to take his debut by 3 ½-lengths. Noble Tune raced behind cover in sixth along the inside before ranging up between horses on the final turn, finding a wide opening turning for home when the pacesetter drifted outwards, and blowing away his opponents once set down by Ramon Dominguez. "After seeing his turf works, I wasn't expecting him to run that well, but I was expecting him to run well," said Brown. Off as the 5-2 favorite, Noble Tune paid $7.30 and completed 1 1/16 miles on the Mellon turf course in 1:43.08.

2011 Daytona Stakes (G3) [02:12]
ARCADIA, Calif. -- Mike Machowsky, the trainer of Caracortado, had given up on his horse. So too had track announcer Trevor Denman, who said Caracortado was not firing. But neither jockey Rafael Bejarano nor, most importantly, Caracortado, thought all was lost, and he displayed a breathtaking, last-to-first rush in the stretch to capture the Grade 3, $98000 Daytona Stakes on Sunday at Santa Anita. Caracortado ($5.80), who was officially 13 lengths back a half-mile into the downhill turf sprint, and more than six lengths back with a furlong to go, roared past his three rivals to win by 1 1/4 lengths over Victory Pete. Mr. Gruff and Regally Ready, the Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint winner, finished in a dead heat for third, another half-length back, after a vicious early speed duel that left both sapped in the final furlong. Caracortado was timed in 1:11.59 for about 6 1/2 furlongs on firm turf. "I was watching the race on television at the clubhouse bar with my family and my father, and at the quarter pole I started to walk out," Machowsky said. "I looked up again at the sixteenth pole, and I saw my dad jumping up and down. "He's got a heck of a turn of foot. I didn't understand why he was so far back. He gives you an eerie feeling sometimes. He's got so much natural talent, sometimes it seems like he's playing with his opponents." Bejarano was riding Caracortado for the first time, replacing Joe Talamo, who is off to an uncharacteristically slow start at this meet. Caracortado ...
