"Wow! What A Filly!" - Mossflower - 1998 Hempstead Handicap [04:01]
Her name is Mossflower, she is a 4-year-old daughter of the Triple Crown champion Affirmed, and she streaked across the horizon at Belmont Park yesterday like a shooting star. Mossflower stayed undefeated by winning her sixth straight race in the sort of performance that grows with time. She outran five of the finest fillies in the land by 12 lengths and more, closed with a furious rush to break the record for the Hempstead Handicap and came within two-fifths of a second of matching the track record for a mile and one-sixteenth. And she did it all in the first stakes race she ever ran. The true measure of her success might be judged by the caliber of the fillies she outran, in this order: Glitter Woman, who has finished in the money in 15 of her 16 starts; Colonial Minstrel, who had a five-race winning streak; Ajina, last year's 3-year-old champion filly; Dixie Flag, a speed horse who had won three of her last four, and Royal Indy, winner of the Gazelle last summer at Belmont. After half a mile, Mossflower was running dead last in this all-star field, and she was still fourth after three-quarters of a mile. Then they turned into the homestretch, and Robbie Davis called for closing speed. In a flash, Mossflower blew past Dixie Flag and Glitter Woman, shot from fourth place to first, widened her lead to two lengths in the stretch and widened it to major daylight as they neared the wire.

Affirmed Success - 2002 Carter (G1) [02:31]
Eight-year-old Affirmed Success took a stalker's pose and the inside track against the expected strong pace Saturday afternoon, then took control for good in the lane as he held on for a one-length victory over late-running Voodoo in the 102nd running of the Grade 1, $350000 Carter Handicap for three-year-olds and up -- the undercard feature of Wood Memorial Day at Aqueduct. Owned by Albert Fried Jr., the gelded son of 1978 Triple Crown winner Affirmed broke sharp from the far outside in post 10 under jockey Richard Migliore, then angled to the rail to stalk Rusty Spur, favored Snow Ridge and Here's Zealous through fractions of :21 4/5; :43 2/5 and 1:08 before taking the lead for good and notching the 15th win of his 36-race career in 1:21 4/5. A $2 win ticket on Affirmed Success returned $11.40. "He's never looked better in his life," said winning trainer Richard Schosberg. "He's eight and he's always loved running. We wanted to be inside of Here's Zealous today because that horse got out a little when we ran against him at Laurel (General George, February 18th). Richie (Migliore) rode a great race; he moved at just the right time. This horse is just amazing."
