New York Watch: Noble Tune [02:00]
Trainer Chad Brown initially thought Noble Tune was destined for the dirt before the colt posted a pair of "exceptional" breezes on the Oklahoma turf course, and on Monday the great-grandson of Serena's Song made it clear that he prefers the grass by unleashing a strong turn of foot to take his debut by 3 ½-lengths. Noble Tune raced behind cover in sixth along the inside before ranging up between horses on the final turn, finding a wide opening turning for home when the pacesetter drifted outwards, and blowing away his opponents once set down by Ramon Dominguez. "After seeing his turf works, I wasn't expecting him to run that well, but I was expecting him to run well," said Brown. Off as the 5-2 favorite, Noble Tune paid $7.30 and completed 1 1/16 miles on the Mellon turf course in 1:43.08.

Sr. Champ Onboard 8/26/12 - Twin State / Feature Race [05:11]
Onboard footage of the Sr. Champ Feature Race from Twin State Speedway in New Hampshire. I started 3rd for the Feature and had an exciting first few laps with Peter in the #9 kart and Dave in the #5 kart. I almost was able to take the lead from Dave in the #5 kart, but he was able to hold me off. I was running in 2nd until a caution came, and I think that caution ruined my race. On the final restart, I would have to start on the outside, and I hate starting on the outside row, because it's hard to get down to the bottom without getting frieght-trianed. I was able to hold off the #7 kart and on the last lap, I had a ru on Peter in the #9 kart, but lost the kart going through the second bend and spun out. I'm not sure if I was disqualified or not, but I finished last out of the 4 karts that raced. For my first time at Twin State Speedway, it wasn't too bad. I got robbed of a possible victory and trying to get the kart to turn good.

Mac the Man Breaks His Maiden at Presque Isle Downs [04:24]
MAC THE MAN was off awkwardly, dueled outside of foe, then drew off in the stretch under a mild drive. DR. HOWARD veered in at the start, stalked the pace between rivals, then had a mild late bid. SHADY RULES veered in at the start, rallied five wide at the quarter pole, but was no threat to the winner. MEDIA GROUPIE was bumped at the start, dueled inside, then gave way in the stretch. DIXIE DEPUTY raced evenly inside. NEV'S CAT was off awkwardly, pressed the pace three wide and gave way in the stretch. MORNING CIGAR was not a factor.

New York Watch: Micromanage [01:37]
On the final Saturday of the 2011 Saratoga Race Course meet, a 2-year-old colt named Alpha joined the New York Watch after posting a debut score in a seven-furlong maiden special weight, and 51 weeks later he was in Saratoga's winner's circle after dead heating for the win in the Grade 1 Travers. This year, Micromanage, a Todd Pletcher trainee, posted a five-length debut win in a seven-furlong race on the last Saturday of the meet, and his owner, Mike Repole, hopes history will repeat. "If we can duplicate Alpha's career with this horse, I think I'd be pretty content," said Repole, who won the 2011 Travers with Stay Thirsty. In his debut, Micromanage raced in fifth under jockey Javier Castellano in the opening quarter mile, ranged up three wide to offer his bid on the turn, overtook favored Gulfport straightening for home, and steadily widened his advantage in the stretch. Apex overtook Gulfport late for second. Micromanage, one of two first-time starters in the field of eight, completed the race in 1:23.01 and paid $13.60 for a $2 win wager as the 5-1 fourth choice.

1978 Travers Stakes - Affirmed -vs- Alydar [05:41]
With the infield open to the public, a record crowd of 50122 jammed its way into the Spa, shattering the previous record by more than 15000. There was no way anyone in attendance or the millions watching on TV could foresee the bizarre events that would ensue. What began as a glorious celebration of the sport would end in bitterness and controversy. For the first three-quarters of a mile, everything was going as predicted. Affirmed, favored at 3-5, was sitting comfortably in second and about to dispose of the pace-setting Shake Shake Shake, who had been setting leisurely fractions of :24 and :48. Alydar, sent off at even-money, was in third, two lengths behind Affirmed. Everyone was waiting anxiously for something to happen. When would Affirmed blow past Shake Shake Shake? How and when was Velasquez going to attack Affirmed, and how was he going to try to avoid looking into the eye of the tiger this time? The answer soon became obvious. Cordero took Shake Shake Shake off the rail and began drifting out into Affirmed, opening a huge hole for Alydar, who had been running just inside of Nasty of Bold. Velasquez, as if expecting that hole to open, wasted no time and shot Alydar right through along the vacated rail. Affirmed by now had taken over the lead from the tiring Shake Shake Shake, only to have Alydar come charging through on his inside going into the far turn. The crowd let out a resounding cheer and braced for the battle they had been waiting for. Pincay, sensing the ...
