It's Tricky - TVG Coaching Club American Oaks (G1) [02:08]
It's Tricky wore down Plum Pretty in an exhilarating stretch battle on Saturday at Saratoga Race Course to take the 95th renewal of the Grade 1, $250000 TVG Coaching Club American Oaks for 3-year-old fillies. Trying 1 1/8 miles for the second in her career, It's Tricky tugged at jockey Eddie Castro as she raced outside horses in second, shadowing pacesetter and Kentucky Oaks winner Plum Pretty through fractions of 23.88 and 47.55. The top two began to sneak away from their opponents on the far turn, and they moved in tandem until It's Tricky gained the upper hand with a sixteenth to travel en route to a three-quarter length triumph.

Kauto Star & Denman :|| What Legends Are Made Of [02:53]
NO COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT INTENDED. Please please don't remove this video, clips and music are property of their rightful owners and this video was made because I love the horses, not for profit! Kauto Star and Denman. Two truly magnificent horses of National hunt racing. Anyone who knows racing loves these horses. There are Kauto fans and Denman fans (I have to confess I'm one of those xD) But they are really both just exceptional horses. Why do we have to compare them? Kauto, the flashy french bred, an example of equine brilliance, with an amazing turn of foot and usually flawless jumping. He has won 14 grade ones, including four King George's and two Gold cups. His most recent season has been tough, after falling in the 2010 gold cup, losing his king George crown and being pulled up at Punchestown (after a valiant third in the 2011 gold cup). Many have called for him to be retired. He is 11 years old. I'd hate to see him go downhill, or worse, injure himself, but my opinion is give him one more race,as he may bounce back after the Summer. He doesn't owe us anything but connections will have his best interests at heart whatever they choose and doesn't he deserve one more chance? Denman, the powerful irish bred, a real slogger blessed with extraordinary stamina, he can grind his opponents into the ground. Different to Kauto in many ways, as he doesn't have as many grade ones to his name (only 4) but seemingly unbeatble at his peak. He has put up breathtaking displays in ...

Dunkirk - Maiden Race [01:44]
Dunkirk, a $3.7 million yearling purchase owned by Mrs. John Magnier, Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith, made that price look like a potential bargain when he overcame traffic problems, swung six wide and blew his opposition away in his career debut at Gulfstream Park. The 3-year-old gray son of Unbridled's Song, out of 2000 Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) winner Secret Status, by AP Indy, drew off at will from his 11 opponents to win by 5 3/4 lengths, covering the seven furlongs in 1:25 flat over a track that was playing slow for the first five races. Trained by Todd Pletcher and ridden by Edgar Prado, Dunkirk, who was sold at the 2007 Keeneland September sale by Lane's End Farm as agent, had been working steadily at Palm Meadows since last November. The colt was sent off as the 8-5 favorite. Longshots Santana Six and Spanish Fortune finished second and third, respectively. Prado kept Dunkirk in seventh behind horses through quick opening fractions of :22.35 and :45.34. Blocked by a wall of horses, Prado moved out but was unable to find any holes. He then swung him six wide, and Dunkirk quickly leveled off and stormed to the lead, drawing off with every stride.

2010 Sword Dancer (G1) - Telling [04:52]
Telling demonstrated his affinity for Saratoga Race Course on Saturday by rallying along the inside to win the Grade 1, $500000 Sword Dancer Invitational for the second straight year. Deftly ridden by Garrett Gomez, Telling received a clear trip as he raced in midpack behind fractions of 48.27 and 1:13.23. Asked to pick it up on the far turn, the 6-year-old split two opponents at the head of the lane, cut back inside for his stretch run, and outkicked Bearpath to register a 1 ½-length victory.

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 ...
