Champ Kart Onboard 12/31/12 - Providence / Feature Race [05:17]
Onboard footage of the Champ Kart Feature Race from the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Rhode Island. Tonight on New Year's Eve is the 5th Annual Coffee Cup and Race #2 of the Fatheadz Eyewear Indoor Karting Series. After locking into the Feature Race from the Heat Race, I started 15th out of the 26 karts that started. This race was a wreckfest. When the first caution came out, I nearly ran into Tim in the #15 kart. When another caution came out, I nearly ran into DJ in the #60 kart and was able to avoid him and the other karts that were involved in the accident. After the front runners were retiring from mechanical failues or crashes, I found myself in 6th place. I was having an awesome run and was trying to deliver Katie and Magic a great finish to give as a farewell gift since Puppy in my Pocket: Adventures in Pocketville was coming to an end today and was removed from the air by Boomerang. I had Katie and Magic riding aboard with me to keep me calm and try to have fun racing. The great run sadly came to an end on the final restart. With the leaders bunching up to close to one another, the people behind me were literally crushing my kart. When Nick in the #41 kart was behind me, he was pushing my bumper so hard, that my seat was being compressed. When I tried to accelerate the kart, the kart did not go. I had to stop on track, because I thought something broke in my kart. The offical gives me the thumbs up, which meant that nothing was wrong with the kart. I was able to get ...

The Key to Training Success - Patience, Consistency, Kindness [01:41]
Spring 2012 (First year off the track) 5yo off the track Quarter Horse to be used for barrel racing and dressage. Had an issue of head tossing at the start of his training. This issue was fixed with NO equipment changes, NO rough training methods or harsh bits/equipment (was being ridden in a Myler snaffle), NO trank or other types of supplements used to "calm" a horse (ie - equine chill) and NO professional riding/training (only riding done by myself without professional instruction). FYI - this issue was fixed within about a month, maybe less. The tools used to fix this issue were: PATIENCE - getting frustrated causes tension in the rider which transfers to the horse making it impossible for him to relax into the contact and become supple and engaged. Also, losing patience and yanking the rein when soft, consistent contact doesn't seem to be creating results is counterproductive and could irritate the horse or (on a more sensitive horse) upset the horse to the point where they do not trust you enough to work for you. CONSISTENCY - In order for an issue like this to be resolved on a young horse, the rider must always be giving the same message as to not confuse the horse. Every time the head is tossed, contact is held and leg pressure is increased to push the horse into the contact. When he softens and brings his head down he is rewarded - a "good boy" and a pat on the neck with a slight decrease in rein contact tells him he did something right. If this is done the same ...

1998 Breeders' Cup Mile + Post Race [13:40]
Regardless of the odds it is not wise to dismiss any horse trained by Michael Dickinson. The lesson was manifested dramatically this afternoon as Da Hoss, at 11-1 odds and in only his second start after a 22-month layoff, won the $1 million Breeders' Cup Mile for the second time in three years. With a half-furlong remaining the 6-year-old gelding appeared beaten as another long shot, Hawksley Hill, pushed his nose in front on the outside. But under the jockey John Velazquez, who had never had a Breeders' Cup mount before this year, Da Hoss rallied and prevailed by a head at the wire. The final time for the race on a turf course rated firm was 1:351/5 , three-fifths of a second faster than the clocking when Da Hoss won the Breeders' Cup Mile at Woodbine in Toronto in 1996 under Gary Stevens. This time, he returned $25.20 for a $2 win ticket. Miesque, a champion in both Europe and North America, won consecutive runnings of the Mile in 1987-88, as did Lure in 1992-93. But in many respects Da Hoss's twin triumphs are more extraordinary, because the only start he made between them was a three-quarter-length victory in allowance company at Colonial Downs in Virginia on Oct. 11. Da Hoss has been plagued with physical problems since he was a foal. ''A fetlock when he was a foal,'' Dickinson said, ''a pair of bone spurs as a yearling, another fetlock in June of last year, some lameness last fall. There have been some vet bills. His groom spends six hours a day with him, massaging ...

1979 Preakness Stakes [09:53]
Last Saturday afternoon at Pimlico following Spectacular Bid's 5�-length victory in the Preakness, one could almost hear the flapping of wings as the last of the colt's detractors took off for parts unknown. Bid ran his best race yet. By picking up first money of $165300, he pushed his bankroll over $1 million to become the youngest millionaire in racing history, and he ran the mile and [3/16]ths in 1:54[1/5], the second-fastest time in a race that is 104 years old. Appearing to toy with four opponents, Spectacular Bid rolled easily to the finish line to a tremendous ovation from his owners' neighbors in Baltimore, where this handsome gray colt has now become as much of a hero as Brooks Robinson, John Unitas and the blue crab. With the first two legs tucked away, Spectacular Bid must now be considered odds-on to become the third Triple Crown winner in the past three years. On June 9, he will try to complete the sweep in the Belmont Stakes. The main question about that race is how many opponents the New York Racing Association can muster to run against him. There won't be a bunch. An hour after the Preakness, LeRoy Jolley, the trainer of fifth-place finisher General Assembly, reflected on what he had witnessed. "There were times when I had doubts about Spectacular Bid," he said. "No more. My horse couldn't have beaten him if he had cut through the infield. I've had enough of running against Spectacular Bid for a while. So has the General. Spectacular Bid's Preakness was ...

Stroller's fourth race [05:09]
The horse was very late to the barriers due to saddle problems. He didn't parade and the other horses were at the barrier as he was still getting his saddle adjusted. Jockey said that he didn't want to use him up too early but going around the turn he got pushed wide by another horse (Man of Stealth I think). Jockey said the horse doesn't jump well, we corrected him on that, and then he said that he doesn't get into stride quick enough. Jockey said that just after the start it felt like the horse was running down hill. We think the horse didn't like the type of saddle used by the jockey which requires a very tight girth as it has no breast collar. This restricted the horse and was uncomfortable which is why he felt like he was running down hill. For some reason the jockey seems to punch the horse on the rump whilst in the barriers (at 38 seconds) Maybe the horse was leaning?
