1991 Pacific Classic [04:13]
With the screams of 28134 fans rising an octave with every last stride he took to the wire, Best Pal caught Twilight Agenda in the final 30 yards Saturday to score a one-length victory in the $1-million Pacific Classic, the richest race in the 52-year history of Del Mar. Because he was a 3-year-old in a field of older horses, Best Pal carried eight pounds less than the others in the 1 1/4-race that was expected to establish the horse of the year. Instead, Best Pal's victory complicated the issue, with Farma Way, the 3-2 favorite, running fifth after leading until the quarter pole, and Festin, his late-running archrival in four other races, ending up fourth. Best Pal was bred and is raced by John and Betty Mabee, San Diegans who have been part of the Del Mar family for more than 20 years. John Mabee is chairman of the board at the track and was one of the forces behind creation of the Pacific Classic. "This horse is the public's choice," Mabee said after Best Pal's $550000 payday. "We just wanted to run a horse in this race that wouldn't disgrace us. I thought he was better coming into this race than the press gave him credit for, but maybe this was just owner prejudice. "There's no question that he's got a fan base. He would have been 15-1 instead of 9-2 if they had paid attention to the handicappers in the papers." Twilight Agenda, Farma Way's stablemate from trainer Wayne Lukas' barn, took the lead from Farma Way heading into the stretch but finished second, 2 3/4 ...

1990 Kentucky Derby: Full ABC Broadcast [01:08:43]
Unbridled soared past Summer Squall through the stretch to score a surprising 3 1/2-length victory today in the 116th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. A race that had figured to be decided by inches ended instead with a runaway winner and a dozen lengths separating the first four finishers. Unbridled, a 10-1 shot who finished 3 3/4 lengths behind Summer Squall in the Blue Grass Stakes three weeks ago, looked much the best reversing that decision today and was increasing his winning margin with every stride to the wire. Summer Squall finished six lengths in front of Pleasant Tap, a 40-1 shot, and it was another three lengths back to Video Ranger in fourth. Silver Ending, Killer Diller, Land Rush, Mister Frisky, Thirty Six Red, Power Lunch, Real Cash, Dr. Bobby A., Pendleton Ridge, Burnt Hills and Fighting Fantasy completed the finish in that order. Mister Frisky, sent off as the 19-10 favorite by a small margin over Summer Squall, who was 2-1, came into the race with a record of 16 for 16, the best record in Derby history. But the popular colt, who made his first 13 starts in Puerto Rico, faded badly after seven furlongs and finished eighth, beaten by 19 1/4 lengths. Unbridled, a son of the Mr. Prospector stallion Fappiano and the Le Fabuleux mare Gana Facil, paid $23.60 for $2 to win as the fifth betting choice and ran the mile and a quarter in a solid 2:02 under Craig Perret. The bay-colored colt, bred in Florida by Tartan Farms, is owned by Frances A. Genter, who is ...

Demonstrating proper Equitation walk-trot [01:34]
Equitation is vital, especially in a show. It's just the "book" way of how you should look on a horse from the basics to the olympic levels. Walk- trot is simple. I listed some of the things that should be on your equitation checklist in the video. You'll also see a comment I included about making the horse work off her back end. As a horse is supposed to be balanced, the "power" should come from the back end. Keep contact in the front, but make sure your horse's hind end is always engaged. Another pointer... a sitting trot should be visibly slower than a rising or posting trot. while in the sitting trot, try not to bounce all over the saddle. Some horses are very bouncey. A way to strengthen yourself up to be able to handle this with good eq would be to try no stirrups. This strengthens your leg and teaches you not to rely on stirrups to balance you. Also lets you really get the feel of the horse's motion/

Rodeo Terminology in the Navajo Language [04:26]
Rodeo, or known as Ahóóhai in the Navajo language, is a very popular sport on the Navajo reservation. Since many Navajos have cattle, it's not suprising that Navajos undertaken this competitive sports event. This video basically covers the names of the events in Navajo, both timed and rough stock events. This video also covers the names of key individuals involved in a rodeo, for example: Akałii: Cowboy: Dóola Bił Naalgeedígíí: Bull Rider Hastiin Łá̜ At'ínígíí: Rodeo Clown Bił Nída'algeedgo Nídayiiláhígíí: Pick-Up Man The term "rodeo" in Navajo comes from the word "Naa'ahóóhai," which means "chicken" in Navajo. Rodeos on the reservation initiated around a "chicken-pull." Over time, this word got shortened to "ahóóhai," and rather than being named after chicken pulls it became the term for "rodeos" as rodeos got popular on the reservation. Also, some people will use the term "Naa'ahóóhai" or "Ahóóhai" for agricultural shows; tribal, county, or state fairs. The names of the rodeo events in Navajo: Łí̜í̜' T'áá Dilkoohgo Naalgeedígíí: Bare Back The breakdown: Łí̜í̜': horse T'áá Dilkoohgo: in a smooth manner (ie without a saddle) Naalgeedígíí: the one that is bucking Łí̜í̜' Bik'ídahaznilgo Naalgeedígíí: Saddle Bronc The breakdown: Łí̜í̜': horse Bik'ídahaznilgo: things are set on it (ie it is saddled) Naalgeedígíí: the one that is bucking Béégashii Ałts'á̜á̜' Wódleehígíí: Team Roping The breakdown: Béégashii: cow Ałts'á̜á̜': on each side Wódleehígíí: the one where it is roped ...
