Folowthemoneytrail Wins at Turfway Park [05:26]
FOLOWTHEMONEYTRAIL settled in hand four wide, moved up to engage the leaders leaving the turn, struck the front entering the stretch and edged clear. BREAK OF SILENCE made a long drive circling six wide, and continued on well to earn the place. GO BRAY BOO attended the pace off of the inside, bid between horses leaving the second turn, garnered a brief lead, weakened during the drive and settled for the show. SAVAGE VOW was close up four between horses, offered a mild bid but lacked the needed late response. BIG PICTURE GUY was unhurried into stride, came seven wide and finished with a belated gain. FIRE ANGEL settled saving ground, angled out leaving the second turn but passed only the tiring ones. MOMMA'S HAPPY bobbled at the start, recovered quickly and was forwardly placed three wide, but came up empty between horses on the second turn and dropped out. TIME TO ENGAGE lagged far back and was never a factor. DRAKE MANOR opened clear to set the pace, was headed nearing the five-sixteenths pole and stopped.

Men's pentathlon David Svoboda wins the gold - Summer Olympics 2012 in London (my response) [01:36]
(my response) David Svoboda of the Czech Republic won the modern pentathlon Saturday at the London Games after matching the Olympic record in the fencing event to open the competition. Svoboda, who won the European championship two years ago, led by just one second going into the final event, a combination of running and shooting. He briefly lost the lead after his main rival, Cao Zhongrong of China, was quicker to hit the five targets. Svoboda, however, regained the lead in the running part of the event, throwing his arms in the air to celebrate long before crossing the line. He finished with 5928 points to beat silver medalist Cao by 24 points. Adam Marosi of Hungary, the 2009 world champion, won bronze with 5836 points. ''In Beijing, I was fighting for the gold medal, but it all ended in disappointment,'' said Svoboda, who started as the favorite at the 2008 Olympics but finished 28th. ''So I decided to fight for gold again.'' Cao said he was ''quite happy'' with his performance after earning China's first medal in the event. ''To show your strength on the Olympic grandstand, that's great,'' Cao said through an interpreter. World champion Aleksander Lesun went into the final event in third place, but needed 10 shots to hit his five targets in his first shooting round. He lost too much time there to keep up with Svoboda and Cao, and finished fourth. Two-time defending champion Andrei Moiseev of Russia lost his chance at another gold, falling to sixth going into the ...

NASCAR fan is hit and killed by lightning strike in the parking lot of Pocono Raceway (my response) [01:11]
(my response) Brian Zimmerman, of Moosic, Pa., died as he stood near his car in the parking lot of Pocono Raceway, according to the Monroe County coroner. A woman who answered the phone at Zimmerman's home declined comment. Nine other people were injured during Sunday's violent storm, though it wasn't immediately clear how many might have been struck by lightning. One who had been listed Sunday night in critical condition was upgraded to stable. The crowd of about 85000 was advised over public address systems and through social media to take cover Sunday afternoon when lightning and heavy rain hit the track near the end of the race. But some fans posted on the raceway's Facebook page that they never heard the weather-related announcements. NASCAR spokesman Dave Higdon said Monday that officials are reviewing how the track carried out its emergency procedures. He cautioned against rushing to judgment until all the facts are known. ''Anytime something like this happens, we make sure we look at it again and see if there's anything we should have done different,'' Higdon said. ''It's never a good day for us when someone passes and people are hurt.'' Pocono Raceway president and CEO Brandon Igdalsky expressed sorrow at a news conference Monday afternoon at the track, where a large US flag flew at half-staff. ''Fans are like family to us,'' Igdalsky said, noting that Zimmerman had been coming to races for several years with his friends. He added that he planned to contact ...
