2011 Daytona Stakes (G3) [02:12]
ARCADIA, Calif. -- Mike Machowsky, the trainer of Caracortado, had given up on his horse. So too had track announcer Trevor Denman, who said Caracortado was not firing. But neither jockey Rafael Bejarano nor, most importantly, Caracortado, thought all was lost, and he displayed a breathtaking, last-to-first rush in the stretch to capture the Grade 3, $98000 Daytona Stakes on Sunday at Santa Anita. Caracortado ($5.80), who was officially 13 lengths back a half-mile into the downhill turf sprint, and more than six lengths back with a furlong to go, roared past his three rivals to win by 1 1/4 lengths over Victory Pete. Mr. Gruff and Regally Ready, the Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint winner, finished in a dead heat for third, another half-length back, after a vicious early speed duel that left both sapped in the final furlong. Caracortado was timed in 1:11.59 for about 6 1/2 furlongs on firm turf. "I was watching the race on television at the clubhouse bar with my family and my father, and at the quarter pole I started to walk out," Machowsky said. "I looked up again at the sixteenth pole, and I saw my dad jumping up and down. "He's got a heck of a turn of foot. I didn't understand why he was so far back.

Hit It Rich - 2011 Long Island (G3) [02:50]
Hit It Rich earned her first graded stakes victory Saturday afternoon at Aqueduct Racetrack, taking command with a decisive move at the head of the stretch and going on to a 1 ½-length victory in the 55th running of the Grade 3, $150000 Long Island Handicap. Patiently handled by Javier Castellano, the 4-year-old gray daughter of Smart Strike was content to gallop alongside pacesetter Unbridled Essence as she led the field of eight fillies and mares through fractions of 24.38, 49.39, 1:15.32 and 1:41.12 over a turf course rated "firm." Grabbing the lead on the turn, Hit It Rich quickly opened up on her seven rivals and rolled under the wire in 2:30.39 for the 1 ½ miles.

Elusive Pearl - 2011 Pebbles S. [01:59]
Able to dictate a slow tempo, Elusive Pearl proved impossible to catch on Monday at Belmont Park in the $100000 Pebbles for 3-year-old fillies. After grabbing the lead as the field exited the one-mile chute on the Widener turf course, Elusive Pearl received token pressure from Divalarious through soft fractions of 24.88 and 50.44. The favorite was kept under a hold entering the stretch and was hand-ridden as she opened on her rivals, with runner-up Hessonite closing down the center of the track to finish 2 ¼ lengths behind the winner. The final time for one-mile over firm turf was 1:36.61. Elusive Pearl, returned $6.10 for a $2 win wager.
