Zo Impressive - 2012 Mother Goose (G1) [02:05]
Zo Impressive took advantage of a tiring pacesetter in Contested and held off a late surge from Disposablepleasure to win Saturday's 56th running of the Grade 1, $300000 Mother Goose at Belmont Park. After breaking sharply from post position 5 under Rajiv Maragh, Zo Impressive was taken back to settle on the outside in third as 1-2 favorite Contested opened up 1 ½ lengths on longshot Wildcat's Smile through a quarter mile in 23.08 and a half in 46.47. Asked for run leaving the five-sixteenths pole, the front-running Acorn winner came up empty. Zo Impressive, meanwhile, was set down to duel with late-running Disposablepleasure, whom she bested by three-quarters of a length. The final time for 1 1/16-miles was 1:44.28 over a track rated good. Kentucky Oaks winner Believe You Can, who tracked the leaders from the inside throughout, finished third, followed by Wildcat's Smile and Contested. A jockey's objection by Ramon Dominguez, the rider of Disposablepleasure, against the winner for alleged interference in the stretch run was disallowed by the stewards.

1995 Belmont Stakes - Thunder Gulch : Full ABC Broadcast [01:04:11]
With his star, Timber Country, back in the barn recovering from a virus, the trainer D. Wayne Lukas marched into the racing record books yesterday when his other colt, Thunder Gulch, won the 127th Belmont Stakes by two lengths after a tingling duel down the homestretch with Nick Zito's Star Standard. Lukas became the first trainer ever to win five straight triple crown races, which he did with three horses, and the first to sweep the triple crown with two horses: the absent Timber Country, who won the Preakness three weeks ago, and Thunder Gulch, who won the Kentucky Derby five weeks ago. "I'm overwhelmed and very, very happy," Lukas said. "Everything fell into place. When it got down to one horse with Timber Country out, it all rested on Thunder Gulch's shoulders. And he was ready." He has been getting ready since last November, when he won the Remsen Stakes at Aqueduct and began a string of successes that catapulted him from his rank as a second-string horse in a Lukas barn crammed with stars: second in the Hollywood Futurity, first in the Fountain of Youth Stakes, first in the Florida Derby, first in the Kentucky Derby and third in the Preakness. And after his stablemate was scratched because of the virus and a fever, which subsided yesterday, Thunder Gulch added the $697400 Belmont Stakes as the flag bearer of the stable. He stalked an exceedingly slow pace set by Star Standard, ridden by Julie Krone, who crossed over from the outside post position immediately after ...

Hansen - 2012 Gotham (G3) [02:08]
Rebounding from his only defeat, juvenile champion Hansen came from off the pace for the first time in his career and posted a decisive three-length victory in Saturday's 60th running of the Grade 3, $400000 Gotham at Aqueduct Racetrack to reaffirm his status as one of the early favorites for the Kentucky Derby. Leaving from post position 12, the near-white son of Tapit was hung out four wide going round the first turn as King and Crusader emerged to tow the field of 13 through an opening quarter-mile in 23.68 seconds. Settling comfortably off the pacesetter on the backside as the half went in 47.51 and three-quarters in 1:11.79, Hansen moved up three-wide to challenge for the lead on the turn, easily taking over once into the stretch and drawing clear for the decision over My Adonis.
