2003 American Handicap - Candy Ride [01:49]
In the mid-1990s, trainer Ron McAnally showed Sid Craig tapes of an Argentine-bred colt who looked like the real goods. The asking price for Gentlemen, the horse in the tapes, was $1 million. That was about $700000 more than Craig had paid for his future champion, the Argentine-bred Paseana, a few years before, so he and McAnally passed on Gentlemen. The happy end to the story belonged to RD Hubbard, who eventually became the principal owner of Gentlemen as the horse carved a US career that totaled $3.3 million in purses. Early this year, McAnally went to Del Mar to show Sid and Jenny Craig more race tapes of another Argentine prospect. The asking price for Candy Ride would be high, McAnally knew, but the Craigs had been known to open their vault before. They paid $2.5 million for Dr Devious, their 1992 English Derby winner. To get the undefeated Candy Ride, who won his three races in South America by 28 lengths, the Craigs were going to have to spend $900000. "That's a lot of money," Sid Craig said Friday, "but I've never seen Ron this excited about a horse before." He was standing in the winner's circle at Hollywood Park on the Fourth of July, wearing a red-white-and-blue necktie and celebrating Candy Ride's first stakes victory in the US, a three-quarter length victory over Special Ring in the $150000 American Handicap. Candy Ride has won five in a row overall and earned $124800 for the Craigs, whose accountants will be pleased to know that bigger days might be ahead ...

co owner of Tickity Bleue Peter Gordon chats to Eliza at Cheltenham [01:14]
One of Eliza's friends Peter Gordon is co owner in a small syndicate of 'Tickity Bleue' an exciting prospect for next season trained by Alan King . She was beaten on this ocassion by Glorious Twelfth from the Nicky Henderson yard; but had beaten it on her sole run previously at Newbury. The big tests is always Cheltenham to see if a horse copes with the hill; and also they were unsure about the soft going but she handled it well. The race was a 'bumper' - an introduction to racecourse action for future jumpers but on the flat; also known as a 'National Hunt flat race'. Tickity Bleue was giving weight to Glorious Twelfth (and the rest of the runners) because of the fact she'd won before; but the latter is a 5 year old. The last race of the day on a filthy afternoon; many racegoers had departed and as a result have probably missed two of the new stars of next season...
