Who won? A close call, & a rare & nail-biting photo finish in horse racing [04:01]
At Santa Anita, a major racetrack near Los Angeles, on Sat Feb 13, 2011, fans witnessed a truly remarkable effort and whisker - close finish in a 6 & a half furlong allowance sprint. Watch in the stretch where Smart Spending, (a BC bred) horse #2 on the rail with the black & white silks, gets trapped, and has to be reigned in (checked) to prevent catastrophe. When I saw this, I held my breath & braced for the worst. Next, however, I watched one of the most impressive performances in some time. What made this more satisfying was to see a BC bred and owned horse compete and run well against the big boys at Santa Anita. Hats off to jockey Garrett Gomez, and trainer Carla Gaines for helping to make this happen. I hope to see Smart Spending race again this year at Vancouver's Hastings Park. Obviously he's vastly improved since his run in the 2010 BC Derby

The Cheese Wedge: Cheltenham Cross Country steeplechase [00:48]
I commandeer a young lad into being my video cameramen so I can use my canon. I think he did a good job! Tremendously exciting to be up close and in the middle of this confusing Country cross Country steeplechase in torrential wind and rain - imagine what it's like - those wet leather saddles and reins and thin silks and freezing driving rain, mud and steam filled goggles and huge fences!!! Lacdoudal the winner is the grey horse. Watch how they have to jump; land and take off again. Takes an intelligent horse
