1999 Hopeful Stakes Grade I [04:04]
The monster of the freshman class, More Than Ready, was back in the barn resting for the battles of autumn at Belmont Park and the championships beyond. But in his place came the challengers led by High Yield, the West Coast star trained by D. Wayne Lukas, who gave More Than Ready something to think about when he won the Hopeful Stakes today at Saratoga by five lengths. High Yield is a 2-year-old chestnut son of Storm Cat, and he arrived with impeccable credentials. He ran second in his debut at Hollywood Park in July, third in a stakes race the next time and was a runaway first this afternoon. He is owned by a clutch of racing's aristocrats: Bob and Beverly Lewis, Michael Tabor and Mrs. John Magnier. He is handled by Lukas, who has won four runnings of the Hopeful in this decade and 25 stakes for 2-year-old horses over all. And he was ridden by Jerry Bailey, the prince of jockeys. So his success today in Saratoga's climactic race for juvenile colts was no surprise. High Yield was the 8-5 favorite to outrun Afternoon Affair, the second choice, who showed no response in the homestretch and finished fifth. And at the wire, High Yield had five lengths on the long shot Settlement, who had three lengths on Exciting Story. Afterward, Lukas wasted no time setting the stage for the eventual confrontation between High Yield and the undefeated More Than Ready, who is trained by Todd Pletcher, his onetime assistant.

Response to comments: Which Tracks Cheat The Most [05:50]
I didn't mean the actually facility, building cheats lol. There are 2 ways tracks cheat but trainers and jockeys do 90% of the cheating. Tell me why all the top trainers have been suspended. Robert Frankle was suspended in 2000 for juice, 2 time eclipse award winner Steve Assmussen was suspended for juice twice. Richard Dutrow, Scott Lake, Kiaran mclaughlin have all been suspended for the times that they've actually been caught!
