New York Watch: Micromanage [01:37]
On the final Saturday of the 2011 Saratoga Race Course meet, a 2-year-old colt named Alpha joined the New York Watch after posting a debut score in a seven-furlong maiden special weight, and 51 weeks later he was in Saratoga's winner's circle after dead heating for the win in the Grade 1 Travers. This year, Micromanage, a Todd Pletcher trainee, posted a five-length debut win in a seven-furlong race on the last Saturday of the meet, and his owner, Mike Repole, hopes history will repeat. "If we can duplicate Alpha's career with this horse, I think I'd be pretty content," said Repole, who won the 2011 Travers with Stay Thirsty. In his debut, Micromanage raced in fifth under jockey Javier Castellano in the opening quarter mile, ranged up three wide to offer his bid on the turn, overtook favored Gulfport straightening for home, and steadily widened his advantage in the stretch. Apex overtook Gulfport late for second. Micromanage, one of two first-time starters in the field of eight, completed the race in 1:23.01 and paid $13.60 for a $2 win wager as the 5-1 fourth choice.

2012 Breeders' Cup contender - Acclamation makes it seven straight with easy Eddie Read repeat [02:55]
Allowed to walk the dog on the lead through slow fractions over 1 1/8-miles on Del Mar's turf course, Acclamation made 1-to-2 look like a gift, strolling home by 2 3/4-lengths over four rivals to win for the seventh straight time in graded stakes company while repeating in the $300000 Eddie Read (Grade I). "(Whether) he sets fast fractions or slow fractions, he always comes home," said jockey Patrick Valenzuela of the 2011 Eclipse-award Champion Older Horse. "I've ridden some champions like Sunday Silence and Arazi, but for any horse to go out and set the pace like that and come home the final quarter like he does, that's a true race horse." The win pushed career earnings to over $1.95 million for the 6-year-old California-bred son of Unusual Heat, who could attempt to repeat in the $1 million Pacific Classic at the end of August. Options are open for either the Breeders' Cup Classic or Turf as the end of the year goal at Santa Anita. "Acclamation and Tom Knust (Valenzuela's agent) made this comeback happen," said Valenzuela, who returned from yet another retirement earlier this year. "My weight's good and I just want to get more winners." A champion in Argentina, Interaction rallied for second at 11-to-1 in his fourth US start and Casino Host rounded out the trifecta at 6-to-1 making his first start in the barn of Ron Ellis.

Wholelottashakin ROCKS the 9th race on May 27th @ Belmont [08:03]
Wholelottashakin WON the 9th race on Sunday, May 27th at Beautiful Belmont Park. She broke sharp from the 5 hole with Javier, he put her in good position until about the 5/8ths pole where she almost ran up the leader's you know what... Javier had to jerk her head to get her to the outside - any other horse would have packed it in right there but she continued in stride. Javier saved ground behind the leaders, the favorite went wide and he went for the hole on the rail and the rest my friends, as they say, is history. She flew down the stretch and held off a repeated challenge from the fancy 4yo and prevailed under strong urging. She loves a little give in the ground and I think she likes the mile distance. Congratulations to all ~ certainly a nice way to celebrate the Holiday weekend!
