Affirmed splashes home first in the 1979 Woodward at Belmont [02:31]
Making the penultimate start of his illustrious career, the Harbor View Farm's Affirmed was sent off at 2-5 and did not disappoint his backers as he rolled to a two and a half length victory in the September 22, 1979 Woodward Stakes over a sloppy Belmont Park oval. In his march toward Horse of the Year honors, Affirmed took on a pair of top younger rivals, including that year's Belmont Stakes winner Coastal and the talented Czaravich. Sirlad and Mister Brea rounded out the field of five. Affirmed was trained by Laz Barrera and ridden here by Laffit Pincay, Jr., who finished first aboard Affirmed (with one disqualification) the ten times he ultimately piloted him. Marshall Cassidy has the call.

2010 King's Bishop Stakes [01:46]
If there was any question about who is the top 3-year-old sprinter on the East Coast, Discreetly Mine answered it emphatically Aug. 28. The son of Mineshaft rolled through blistering fractions on the speed-favoring Saratoga main track and held off a pair of rivals to win the $250000 NetJet King's Bishop Stakes for his first grade I win. Johnny Velazquez, who earned his third victory in the prestigious race, piloted Discreetly Mine to a 1 1/4--length win in a final time of 1:23.16 for seven furlongs on the fast dirt. It was the third consecutive graded stakes win for the bay colt, who has found a home sprinting after cutting back from a failed try in the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) in May. Todd Pletcher trains the homebred for E. Paul Robsham Stables.

Friend Or Foe: Travers Workout - August 21 [01:25]
Turning in his final breeze for the Travers on Saturday was the New York-bred Friend Or Foe, who covered five furlongs over the main track in 1:00.60, according to the NYRA clockers. Sent out shortly after 6 am, Chester Broman Sr.'s colt was piloted by jockey Rajiv Maragh, who will ride him in the Travers and who guided him to a fourth-place finish in the Grade 2 Jim Dandy here on July 31, Friend Or Foe's first start around two turns. "I told I told Rajiv we were trying to shoot for around a minute," said trainer John Kimmel. "The track was a little bit on the dry side this morning, and I got him in a 1:00.53, out in 1:13 and 4/5. He actually picked up a horse in the middle of the breeze and used him as a target maybe for an eighth of a mile until he passed him. Rajiv said he felt absolutely great underneath him and he came back and was cooled off in a matter of just minutes. It was about as comfortable a breeze as you could want." With the breeze behind him, Friend Or Foe's major preparations for the race are now complete.
