1995 Wood Memorial Stakes [13:22]
The road to Kentucky may run through New York after all. In perhaps the most impressive performance by a 3-year-old colt this year and on the heels of his decisive victory in the Gotham three weeks ago, Talkin Man led every step of the way to win the 71st running of the $500000 Wood Memorial yesterday at Aqueduct. Talkin Man did it in impressive fashion, toying with seven colts before pulling away for a 7 3/4-length victory over Knockadoon and assuring himself a date at Churchill Downs in three weeks, perhaps as the favorite of the Kentucky Derby on May 6. The 2-to-5 favorite in the Grade II Wood, Talkin Man left the rest of the field -- none had won a graded stakes race -- in the dust at the top of the stretch. Jockey Shane Sellers, riding the Canadian-bred horse for the first, and likely last time, because Mike Smith had to honor another commitment in Arkansas, never used his whip as his mount covered the mile and an eighth in an easy 1:491/5 . "I was just a passenger out there," Sellers said after Talkin Man breezed through fractions of 234/5 seconds for the quarter, 48 flat for the half, 1:123/5 over 6 furlongs and the mile in 1:37 even, while never being asked to run all out. "Regardless of what the pace was, I knew what I had underneath me. He was telling me, 'We OK, we OK Don't worry about nothing.' " Coupled with the upset victory by the 30-1 long shot Wild Syn in the Blue Grass at Keeneland a little over an hour earlier, Talkin Man's victory guarantees that the ...

Worlds Best Race Horse Black Caviar steps out in style at Sandown [00:28]
Black Caviar took her most positive step so far towards a return to racing with a surprise first public appearance for the year at Sandown on Tuesday morning. The unbeaten mare contested a jump-out, her first piece of serious racetrack competition since her famous Royal Ascot victory in June. Sitting deep from the start of the 800m contest, Black Caviar domimated the jump-out from the home turn as she put a space between herself and her rivals. "It was just a soft half-mile jump-out and I'm very happy with her," trainer Peter Moody told AAP. "Like a pig in mud. "It was a great opportunity to have a little trip away on a great surface." The Sandown excursion confirmed Black Caviar is making excellent progress as he prepares for an exhibition gallop between races on her home track at Caulfield on February 2. It's likely to be her final public appearance at the track. Black Caviar is scheduled to make her racing return in the $500000 Group One Lightning Stakes at Flemington on February 16. "That's the race we've always suggested will be the race she kicks off in," Moody said. A farewell campaign for the $6.8 million earner is expected to take in races in Sydney and Brisbane. Black Caviar took her record to 22 wins from 22 starts when she overcame muscle tears and bruising to win the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot. This Video is in the Public Domain.

First time for Lauren and Zippo in a jumping pattern. Zipoo doesn't seem to like the walking pace, more engaged at a trot. Watching, it seems that he likes to be challenged!

challenger space shuttle takeoff [00:29]
The entire accident only took a few seconds -- from the car's flipping, to the explosion, to the driver running out of the car screaming and on fire -- but it was still one of the funniest things the fans had ever seen. "Oh, man. That was awesome," said Richard Jensen. "This was the first time I've been to a funny car race, but if they are all this good, I'll be back again. Hi-larious. It's rare these days for something to be understated in its title."Jon Heller, the driver whose car exploded, was happy to entertain the crowd."It's always hard to hear the laughter when the flames are roaring all around you," said Heller. "But once the bandages are removed from over my ears upon completion of the skin grafts, I will listen to the tapes."

NO RAIN NO RAINBOW outrun for a half, angled out on the second turn, made a four wide run into the stretch and drew clear late. BREAK OF SILENCE close up while off the inside, challenged three wide after a half, gained a short lead on the second turn and held on gamely to be second best. POLITICAL RACE forwardly placed from the start, made a run at the leaders while four wide on the second turn but gave way in the drive. PROUD WARRIOR within striking distance early along the inside, moved off the rail on the second turn and tired. NINJA CAT set the early pace four wide, moved in to the two path on the second turn and faded in the drive. GO BRAY BOO five wide early, was no factor. PAULISTANO prompted the pace in the three path and stopped.
