2011 Fred "Cappy" Capossela - Sensational Slam [01:26]
Sensational Slam, returning from a six-month layoff and competing over conventional dirt for the first time, made an inexorable charge to win the $65000 Fred "Cappy" Capossela for owner Bobby Flay on Saturday at Aqueduct Racetrack. A two-time stakes winner against Ontario-breds over Woodbine's artificial surface last summer, Sensational Slam trailed in fifth up the backstretch, came under a drive with three furlongs to go, and gradually reeled in the pacesetters to prevail by three-parts of a length under Ramon Dominguez. "Todd said to me, 'Ramon, there should be some speed in here, but you're going to have to ride him and you're going to have to help him,'" said Dominguez. "Sure enough, that's exactly the way he was. Pretty much every step of the way I had to encourage him a little bit, but when it was time to pick it up, he was there for me." The Capossela was the fourth start overall for Sensational Slam, who was exiting a ninth-place finish in the Grade 3 With Anticipation on turf at Saratoga Race Course on September 3. Prior to that effort, the son of Grand Slam was a narrow winner of the Vandal and Clarendon at Woodbine in July. "The horse was training well so we were optimistic, but it was the first time we had run him on the [dirt]," said winning trainer Todd Pletcher. "This looked like a good place to give it a try. The race unfolded like we thought it would. We thought there'd be plenty of pace, and he's not a real ambitious horse, especially early on. I just ...

Grassy - The Red Smith (G2) [02:46]
Grassy scored his first graded stakes win in the 51st running of the Grade 2, $150000 Red Smith, charging widest of all down the stretch to edge Rescue Squad by a length in the 1 3/8 mile turf race. Ridden by Joe Bravo, the 4-year-old son of El Prado tucked in along the rail well behind Strike a Deal, who led through a half-mile in 51.52 and a mile in 1:43.37 over the soft course. Rounding the turn, Bravo tipped Grassy to the outside and the gray colt responded with a rousing late run that carried him under the wire in 2:20.06. "The minute the gates opened, he gave me this sensation like 'Yo jock, don't worry about it. I got this,'" said Bravo. "He gave me the sensation that at any time he could've gone and run 'em over." The victory was the second in six start this year for Grassy, who in his previous race finished third, beaten 1 ½ lengths, by Winchester in the Grade 1 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Invitational over a yielding course at Belmont Park. "Off his race in the Turf Classic, we thought this was a good spot for him," said Ben Colebrook, assistant to winning trainer Christophe Clement. "He put in a big effort that day. Today, he was even more impressive." Owned by Adele Dilschneider and Claiborne Farm, Grassy returned $4.70 for a $2 win bet as the 6-5 favorite, and earned $90000.
