COLLECTION Won THE MERCEDES-BENZ HONG KONG DERBY 2009 [03:35]
Race Meeting :22/03/2009 Sha Tin Race 9(487) Hong Kong Group One - 2000 Metres THE MERCEDES-BENZ HONG KONG DERBY 2009 HK$ 16000000.00 Going : Good Course : Turf - "A+3" Course 1st COLLECTION(K217)D Beadman 2nd THUMBS UP(K005) C Soumillon 3rd MR MEDICI(K218) E Saint-Martin Cool, calm Collection cruises to Mercedes-Benz Hong Kong Derby glory 22 March 2009 Collection is unquestionably the latest superstar of Hong Kong racing after a resounding victory in the Mercedes-Benz Hong Kong Derby at Sha Tin on Sunday. Backed into odds of 2/5 favourite, the shortest priced runner in the race for a decade, the British import did not disappoint his legions of admirers with a one and a half length victory from market second pick, Thumbs Up, who in turn was nearly three lengths in front of the third home, Mr Medici. It was the third win in the race for trainer John Moore after Makarpura Star in 1995 and Viva Pataca in 2006. Jockey Darren Beadman, meanwhile, was savouring his first success in the HK$16m classic and earned many post-race plaudits after a brilliant, take-no-prisoners ride. Few Derby winners can ever have done it as tough as Collection but still come home such a dominant champion. As expected, the early exchanges of this ten-furlong event were sedately run. Beadman settled the imposing Peintre Celebre gelding in 12th at least eight lengths from the lead before allowing him to cruise up to second place with half a mile to race. Off the home turn, Beadman kicked on and never ...

Smarty Jones - The Inside Story - Part 2 [11:26]
An inside look at Smaty Jones' 2004 epic run for the Triple Crown... "He captivated a nation. Rival horseowners rooted for him. Trainers conceded defeat rather than try him. Rival jockeys compared him to Secretariat. And the press could not say enough good things about him. Steve Haskin wrote: "There was nothing about him that wasn't great." From Andy Beyer: "Smarty Jones is worthy of the Triple Crown." Chick Lang, who has seen 60 Preaknesses, called Smarty Jones' Preakness: "One of the best performances I've ever seen." "He is the one we have been waiting for," wrote Mike Watchmaker. And extraordinary Smarty Jones was. From his starting gate accident as a two-year-old that nearly cost his life to the heart-wrenching final sixteenth in the Belmont, he showed the grit, the heart, and the class of a champion. Bred in Pennsylvania by Roy and Patricia Chapman and named for Mrs. Chapman's mother, Smarty Jones made his first start in the fall of his two-year-old season, and scored by 7 and 3/4 lengths. Wheeled back 13 days later in the Pennsylvania Nursery, Smarty Jones posted a dominating 15-length victory in 1:21.88. That stakes win earned him a Beyer Speed Figure of 105, best in the nation for a two-year-old. Smarty Jones began his three-year-old season in New York, with an imposing five length victory in the Count Fleet S. He followed that up with three impressive wins at Oaklawn, in the $100000 Southwest S., $200000 Rebel S., and $1000000 Arkansas Derby-G2. In the Rebel ...

The 21st Running of the Jim Murray Handicap (Grade II) $150000 Guaranteed [02:52]
A return to the Hollywood Park turf course was all Acclamation needed to get back to the winner's circle. The 5-year-old California bred became the second repeat winner of the $150000 Jim Murray Memorial Handicap Saturday, easily disposing of four rivals. Ending a four race losing streak, Acclamation joined On the Acorn, who won the Grade II in 2007 and 2008 for Indizguys Stable and trainer Mike Mitchell. Ridden for the first time by Joel Rosario, Acclamation, a son of Unusual Heat and the Silveyville mare Winning in Style, was content to track runaway leader All Saint for most of the trip, took over the lead with little effort approaching the stretch, then widened in the final two furlongs. A record setting winner of the Murray a year ago when prevailing by 7 ½ lengths, Acclamation nearly matched the margin Saturday. The 7-5 favorite finished seven lengths ahead of Falcon Rock while running the 1 ½ miles in 2:25.63. The final time was nearly a second faster than his first win in the race. Acclamation's 2010 clocking was 2:26.59. Owned by Peter and Mary Hilvers and breeders Bud and Judy Johnston and trained by Don Warren, Acclamation won for the fifth time in 24 starts. Now 4-for-6 on the Hollywood Park grass, the bay has earned $608048. The 14-1 eighth choice in a field of 10 in last year's Murray, Acclamation returned $4.80, $2.80 and $2.40 Saturday. Falcon Rock, who finished a half-length in front of 5-2 second choice Haimish Hy, paid $3.80 and $2.40. The 6-year-old ...
