1999 Suburban Handicap Grade I [03:20]
Behrens, handling the distance, the competition and the 100-degree heat with professional sureness, raced into the upper levels of handicap horses in this country yesterday when he won the 113th running of the Suburban Handicap at Belmont Park by nearly three lengths. It was the fourth straight success for the 5-year-old bay, who now faces the second half of the year with great credentials and great expectations. In his next start, the $600000 Whitney Handicap at Saratoga on Aug. 1, Behrens will face Victory Gallop. Four weeks later, in the $1 million Pacific Classic at Del Mar, he will race Real Quiet. If there are any questions after that, all three horses should answer them in the $4 million Breeders' Cup Classic at Gulfstream Park on Nov. 6. But yesterday, Behrens left nothing unanswered. He was the overwhelming choice to outrun eight rivals on the hottest day of the year before 11364 stifled fans, and he made no mistakes. With Jorge Chavez directing the performance from the saddle, Behrens ran third after half a mile, second after three-quarters and first after one mile. Then, after extending his lead through the homestretch, he crossed the wire 2 3/4 lengths in front of the 41-1 long shot Catienus. Behrens, carrying the high weight of 121 pounds, had run a mile and a quarter in a snappy 2:01 and had staked a strong claim to the front ranks of the nation's senior horses. ''You always worry about the heat; you can't not worry about it,'' said his trainer, H. James ...

1998 Thoroughbred Racing Hall Of Fame Inductees [02:21]
Ansel Williamson, the onetime slave who trained the first winner of the Kentucky Derby in 1875, was inducted into the thoroughbred Hall of Fame today as a legend of racing's past. He was joined by 45-year-old Bill Mott, who saddled Cigar and is a legend of the present, the youngest trainer ever enshrined. ''It came awfully early in life,'' Mott said, sounding a bit awed. ''It was never planned; it was never expected.'' Racing put its best foot forward for its 43d annual ceremony, which attracted a standing-room crowd of 1200 under a tent pitched on a field next to the National Museum of Racing across Union Avenue from the Saratoga Race Course, which is booming in its 130th year. Dozens of famous trainers and jockeys of the past sat together as footnotes to history, applauding the six racing figures being honored. Besides Williamson and Mott, they were Jacinto Vasquez, the jockey who rode 5231 winners, won the Kentucky Derby twice and won 268 stakes races, and three celebrated horses: Riva Ridge, the stablemate of Secretariat and the juvenile champion of 1971, who went on to win the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes in 1972; Bayakoa, the Argentine filly, who became a double champion in the United States by winning 16 of her 21 starts in 1989 and 1990, and Fort Marcy, three times a champion on grass and Horse of the Year for his exploits in 1970. They brought the Hall of Fame roster to 77 jockeys, 71 trainers and 154 horses. But few have been honored as early as Bill ...

Horse Painting System [01:52]
Based on fan feedback that horses are too difficult to spot during a race, horses running at Hollywood Park will be painted the same color as their saddle towels for the upcoming Spring/Summer meet. The Horse Painting System (HPS) has received an enthusiastic response by most trainers, although some critics remain.
