New York Watch - The Lumber Guy [01:37]
The Lumber Guy was more than OK on January 28 at Aqueduct Racetrack as he skipped and jumped clear to a 9 ¼-length debut victory against eight maiden New York-bred 3-year-olds. Leaving from post position 2, The Lumber Guy wasted no time getting to the front, leading by 1 ½ lengths two furlongs into the race with an opening fraction of 22.79 seconds and widening his advantage to two lengths through a half in 46.12. He was never shown the whip in the lane by jockey Jose Valdivia, Jr. as he pulled clear from Smarty Julips, who chased the winner in second from start to finish. The Lumber Guy, a gray colt by Grand Slam, received a Beyer Speed Figure of 90 for having completed six furlongs in 1:10.20. The performance was similar to the 6 ½-length maiden win Bold Deed, a half-brother to The Lumber Guy, posted in a six-furlong dash at Aqueduct last March in his second start. In three starts since earning his diploma, Bold Deed won the one-mile Packett's Landing overnight stakes for New York-breds in April, finished fifth in the Grade 2 Peter Pan, and second in the NYSS Spectacular Bid. Like Bold Deed, The Lumber Guy is a homebred trained by Michael Hushion for owner Barry Schwartz.

My Miss Aurelia - 2011 Frizette (G1) [01:52]
My Miss Aurelia set a fast, contested pace and drew off in the stretch to register a 5 ½-length victory in the Grade 1, $300000 Frizette for 2-year-old fillies, respectively giving jockey Corey Nakatani and trainer Steve Asmussen their sixth and fourth victories on Saturday's card at Belmont Park. Nakatani became the third jockey in Belmont Park history to win six races on a single card, matching the feats achieved by Jorge Velasquez in 1981 and Ramon Dominguez on June 5 during this year's spring-summer meet. It was the 17th time a jockey has won six races on a single card on The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) circuit. In the Frizette, My Miss Aurelia rushed up from post position 1 to grab the lead from Spare Change, setting pressured fractions of 22.64 and 46.02. Nakatani took a confident look back following three-quarters in 1:10.38, and My Miss Aurelia ran away from her rivals in the stretch as runner-up Stopshoppingmaria gave vain chase in second. My Miss Aurelia completed one mile in 1:35.22, returned $6.50 for a $2 win wager as the 2-1 second choice, and earned a guaranteed berth in the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf on November 4 at Churchill Downs, with the Frizette having been designated a Breeders' Cup Challenge "Win and You're In" race.

Jackson Bend - 2011 Forego (G1) [01:46]
Jackson Bend bookended his meet in stylish fashion, coming from off the pace to win the 32nd running of the $250000 Grade 1 Forego on Saturday at Saratoga Race Course. Attempting to build upon his victory in the July 23 James Marvin on opening day, Jackson Bend was able to work out a good trip from post position 1, racing in seventh behind fractions of 22.09 and 44.45 seconds set by Hamazing Destiny and favored Sidney's Candy. Jockey Corey Nakatani guided Jackson Bend between horses on the run into the stretch, and the colt closed stoutly to register a 3 ¼-length victory over Jersey Town, who finished a head in front of third-place finisher Aikenite. Jackson Bend, who returned $8.90 for a $2 win wager as the 3-1 second choice, completed the seven furlongs in 1:22.08.

Havre de Grace - 2011 Woodward (G1) [02:23]
Havre de Grace put herself squarely in the race for Horse of the Year honors on Saturday afternoon at Saratoga Race Course, powering into the lead with 200 yards to go and pulling clear to a rousing 1 ¼-length victory over seven males in the 58th running of the Grade 1, $750000 Woodward. The 4-year-old daughter of Saint Liam became just the second female ever to win the 1 1/8-mile race, joining Rachel Alexandra, who capped her 2009 Horse of the Year campaign with a win in the Woodward. Sent off as the 2-1 favorite and confidently ridden by Ramon Dominguez, Havre de Grace left from post position 6, then raced wide around the first turn as Rule, closely followed by Mission Impazible, carried the field through an opening quarter-mile in 23.93 seconds. Angled toward the inside as the half went in 48.09, Havre de Grace began inching closer approaching the far turn and launched her bid with three-eighths of a mile to go. Just two lengths back in second at the top of the stretch, Havre de Grace steadily cut into Rule's margin, taking over inside the eighth pole with enough left to turn back the late bid from Flat Out. Her winning time was 1:49.18.
