Here Comes Ben - 2010 Forego Handicap [05:27]
SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY - Trainer Charles Lopresti and his 4-year-old colt Here Comes Ben passed their Grade 1 audition Saturday at Saratoga and the sprint division may have picked up a new significant player. Here Comes Ben, under Alex Solis, split horses at the three-sixteenths pole then wore down Big Drama to win the $250000 Forego Stakes by three-quarters of a length. Big Drama, second to Majesticperfection in the Grade 1 Alfred G. Vanderbilt a month ago, held second by 1 1/2 lengths over favored Vineyard Haven. They were followed in the order of finish by Warrior's Reward, Girolamo, Bribon, Omniscient, and Checklist. The win was the fourth straight for Here Comes Ben, but his first in a graded stakes. It was also Lopresti's first starter in a Grade 1 and first starter at Saratoga. "I was little intimidated coming up here," Lopresti said. "I've never run in a Grade 1 before. I know he has the numbers, I know Alex has been telling me this is a really good horse," Lopresti said. "We brought him up here two weeks before, he trained really well, he did everything right. We had to see if he was this kind of horse and he proved it today." The Forego field contained several Grade 1 winners, including Vineyard Haven, Warrior's Reward, and Bribon. Under Solis, Here Comes Ben was saving ground in the back of the pack while Checklist set fractions of 22.55 seconds and 45.29 for the opening half-mile.

Afleet Express - 2010 Travers Stakes (G1) [02:32]
Galloping out after the oh-so-close finish of the Grade 1, $1 million Travers at Saratoga Race Course, jockeys Javier Castellano, aboard Afleet Express, and Jose Lezcano, riding Fly Down, looked questioningly at each other. "What do you think?" asked Lezcano. "Either way," replied Castellano. It took a photo to decide, and at the very end of the 1 ¼ miles it showed the Jimmy Jerkens-trained Afleet Express had gotten a sliver of a nostril in front of Nick Zito's late-running colt in one of the closest finishes in the 141 runnings of the Mid-Summer Derby. Cleverly ridden by Castellano, who tucked the son of Afleet Alex into the middle of the pack as Miner's Reserve led through fractions of 23.42, 47.25 and 1:11.39, Afleet Express began picking off rivals with a half-mile to go in the 1 ¼-mile race. Moving up along the inside on the far turn, Afleet Express swung out at the top of the lane into the lead even as Fly Down came barreling widest -- and fastest -- of all to hook up as they headed to the eighth pole. Battling saddlecloth-to-saddlecloth through the final 200 yards, with the crowd of 45764 on its feet, Afleet Express somehow managed to prevail by less than an inch, hitting the wire in 2:03.28. It was the ninth time the Travers had been decided by a nose, and the closest finish since Colonel John nipped Mambo in Seattle in 2008.
