2003 Breeders' Cup Turf + Post Race [19:28]
Through its first 19 runnings, the Breeders' Cup Turf consistently has produced close finishes. In the first 10 years, the largest margin of victory was half a length. The most decisive winner was Daylami, the 8-5 favorite who won by two lengths four years ago at Gulfstream Park. The 20th Breeders' Cup Turf on Saturday gave tight a whole new meaning. For the first time in the history of any Breeders' Cup race, there was a dead heat for the win when defending champion High Chaparral and 14-1 shot Johar couldn't be separated at the wire. It took three pictures and some 13 minutes before the photo finish sign came down and the dead heat was confirmed. Falbrav, the 7-2 second choice, almost made it a triple dead heat. He was only a head back after having the lead approaching the wire. Watching the race live, many believed High Chaparral had won. Jockey Mick Kinane thought so, especially after former jockey Donna Barton, who was working on horseback for NBC, approached him as if he had. Richard Mulhall, racing manager for the Thoroughbred Corp., which owns Johar, agreed with Kinane. "When I first saw it, I thought we were second," he said. "I didn't think he got up. After I watched the replay over and over and over, then I thought we won it. "When it was taking so long, I was thinking, well, it has to be a dead heat. I'm happy with a dead heat. It's no disgrace to dead heat with High Chaparral. He's an awful good horse." It was the third of four victories on the day for ...

1989 Preakness Stakes: Full ABC Broadcast [01:02:48]
Sunday Silence, who raised more questions than he answered when he beat Easy Goer by two and a half lengths in the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago, proved himself a worthy Triple Crown contender today by winning the 114th and closest Preakness Stakes ever at Pimlico Race Course. The blackish colt from California raced head and head with Easy Goer for the length of the stretch before regaining the lead in the final yards to win by a long nose. The last time a Preakness was decided in a photo finish was when Affirmed held off Alydar by a neck in 1978. Now Sunday Silence is one victory away from becoming racing's first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed, and his rivalry with Easy Goer, a son of Alydar, is the tightest Triple Crown battle since then. The two colts will hook up again in the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park on June 10, where victory would bring Sunday Silence's owners a total of $5 million in purses and bonuses for the series. The winner had to survive a claim of foul from Pat Day, Easy Goer's rider, who alleged interference by Pat Valenzuela and Sunday Silence through their stretch duel. After reviewing the films for seven minutes, the stewards let the order of finish stand. Another unrelated foul claim, by the rider of Dansil, who was fourth, against Rock Point, who was third, was also disallowed. The bettors in a record Pimlico crowd of 90145, unconvinced by Sunday Silence's weaving Derby finish and the slow final time of that race, made Easy Goer the 3-to-5 ...

1995 Florida Derby Day & Jerry Bailey's Record Setting 7 Wins [23:38]
Jerry Bailey rode seven winners today at Gulfstream Park but missed the big one by a nose when Suave Prospect lost a photo finish to Thunder Gulch and Mike Smith in the 44th Florida Derby. In a driving duel between the two top horses and jockeys at the track, Thunder Gulch made it two straight in the "Florida triple" series. Only three weeks ago he had been flown from California by D. Wayne Lukas and won the Fountain of Youth Stakes by a neck over Suave Prospect, who is trained by Nick Zito. And the two colts now seem locked in a rivalry that may continue until the Kentucky Derby on May 6, when they will be joined by a delegation from the West. "Right now, Thunder Gulch is king of the hill in the East," Lukas said. "Our horse was game, his horse was game. Both horses took large steps forward. They're like Affirmed and Alydar. But we've got their horse's number. We'll break his heart eventually." To which Zito responded, "There's always Kentucky." But even though he lost the main event by a nose, no rider ever had a better afternoon at Gulfstream Park than Bailey, and few anywhere else. The 37-year-old Texan rode 10 horses and made the winner's circle seven times. Along the way, he broke the track record of six victories set in six races in 1953 by Charlie Burr, and also tied the stakes record of four set in 1988 by Randy Romero, also on Florida Derby day. But he couldn't quite reach the national record of eight, set by seven jockeys, most recently by Pat Day at Arlington ...
