1998 Breeders' Cup Classic - Awesome Again + Pre & Post Race [32:16]
On a day when Skip Away ran out of the money and lost his chance to become the world's richest race horse, Awesome Again won the world's richest race when he rushed through the pack in a blanket finish and snatched the $5.2 million Breeders' Cup Classic by three-quarters of a length over Silver Charm. Awesome Again not only won the laurels and the loot, but also his sixth straight start in a perfect year at the races. To do it, he needed to make a furious dash through the homestretch and knife his way through the 10-horse field to hit the finish line in front. But he did it, prevailing over one of the most impressive casts in racing history before a record Breeders' Cup crowd of 80452 at Churchill Downs. And he redeemed an agonizing choice made a year ago by his trainer, Patrick Byrne, who dominated the 1997 Breeders' Cup with two juvenile winners, Favorite Trick and Countess Diana, and then gave them up to take a new job with Frank Stronach of Canada. ''Favorite Trick was a part of history,'' Byrne said with feeling, explaining again why he would surrender the Horse of the Year. ''I loved him. But I was faced with a decision that I had to make. That's what horse racing is all about.'' Racing is also about Skip Away, the 5-year-old superstar who will now retire with career earnings of $9.6 million, about $400000 short of Cigar's record. But in his final performance at the races, just when he might have scored his greatest triumph, he stalked the leaders through most of ...

Sr. Champ Onboard 9/16/12 - NHMS (Upper Track) / Feature Race Part 1 [07:13]
Onboard footage of Part 1 of the Sr. Champ Feature Race from New Hampshire Motor Speedway (Upper Track) in New Hampshire. The Feature Race was a 2 part race. There would be a 25 lap segment, then refueling for everybody, then a 25 lap finishing segment. I started on pole for the Feature Race and boy, the slipstream can either help you, or hurt you. I was able to run with James in the #24 kart and Dylan in the #24x kart to form a three kart pack to pull away from the others. Going downhill, I almost lost control of the kart, but managed to save it while drafting with Dylan in the #24x kart. James in the #24 kart got by me and he and Dyal were gone at that point. I had no choice but to ride around. After 25 laps, I was running in 3rd and would be there for the start of Part 2 of the Feature Race.

Strollers fifth race [05:04]
OK initially a bit disappointing but there was crazy speed on early. Stroller jumped well again but the inside horses weren't going away and some of the outside horses were hammering it. The jockey decided to back off and the horse was running 3 wide in the second pack of four. Just after the turn he starts to shake him up but the horse on his outside is keeping up with him (with a couple of taps of the whip). Then he runs into/gets run into the horse in front, who was also running 3 wide but in the first pack. There's not much more than 3-400 metres left and the jockey said he couldn't get him going again. He definitely doesn't ride him out and I can't see him use the whip on him at any stage.
