RACHEL ALEXANDRA - 2009 Preakness Stakes [03:22]
Calvin Borel made the right choice and history was made May 16 at Pimlico, when for the first time, the Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) winner not only ran in the Preakness Stakes (gr. I) but won the race in convincing fashion. Rachel Alexandra won the middle jewel of the Triple Crown by a length over Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) winner Mine That Bird. The week following her win in the Oaks, Rachel Alexandra was purchased by Jess Jackson and Harold McCormick and transferred from trainer Hal Wiggins to Steve Asmussen. Borel, who had ridden both Rachel Alexandra in the Oaks and Mine That Bird in the Derby, was asked to continue riding the filly and he agreed. Mine That Birds trainer, Chip Woolley, picked up Mike Smith on the Derby winner. It made for one of the most intriguing Preakness Stakes ever, and after drawing post 13, Borel knew he would have to send the filly from the outset, which he did. Big Drama, under John Velazquez, who had the rail, was an obvious pacesetter and he went with the filly as the field went down the stretch the first time and through the first turn. They went the opening quarter in :23.13 and the half in :46.71. Borel was able to open up just a bit on the backstretch but he had used the daughter of Medaglia dOro a great deal to get the lead and knew he had to try and slow the pace a bit. "I was comfortable early, but down the backside they started to pick it up," Borel said. Big Drama, who had skipped the Derby, was still in second down ...

Dakota training 3.wmv [02:37]
In this session I'm teaching Felisha the Send Through exercise. Horses are naturally claustraphopic to tight places places. Its an inborn instinct to keep them safe from predators. This exercise helps them gain confidence and will help you teach a horse to load in that scarry horse eating trailer. You start this exercise 20 feet or so from the rail and slowly move closer as your horse gains confidence until you are about 4 feet from the rail. Its important that your horse has learned to give you 2 eyes before you do this exercise.

Dominguez Notches 4000th Career Victory at Big A [00:46]
Ramon Dominguez, the leading rider on The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) circuit, reached another milestone Wednesday afternoon at Aqueduct Racetrack when he won the second race aboard Fortyninegeorgest. for his 4000th career victory. The 33-year-old rider is the 58th jockey in history to achieve that milestone. "It feels great, but it's almost surreal, said Dominguez. It's the kind of thing that happens slowly over the years, but you're not prepared for it when it gets here. I'm so excited. You remember the big races, but every win counts just at much. I have great support in New York and thanks to my agent and everyone who supports me here." Dominguez, who began riding year-round in New York in 2009, began Wednesday leading the nation in wins with 88 winners of more than $2.5 million. Dominguez, who swept every NYRA meet last year, currently holds a sizable margin over David Cohen for Aqueducts Inner Track Meet, which began on December 2 and runs through March 27. Last year on the NYRA circuit of Aqueduct, Belmont Park and Saratoga Race Course, Dominguez rode 376 winners, second only to Steve Cauthens record 433 wins in 1977, riding five winners on a single card on two occasions, four winners nine times, and three winners a remarkable 43 times. He also won more than 30 NYRA stakes including the Grade 1 Man o'War aboard Gio Ponti, whom he is scheduled to ride in the $10 million Dubai World Cup on March 27. With a record of 376-268-233 from 1560 starters in New ...

Youtube's Best Barrel-Pole Horse Entry/ 2nd Place [03:37]
2nd Place Winner: Ace --------------------------------- This is my entry for American Rodeo's contest. These horses belong to some friends of mine, and I just love watching them race. They're amazing at what they do and enjoy doing it. They're hardcore, bad-ass barrel horses that aren't the kind you can just saddle up and run a pattern on. You need to work with them and really get to know them well. Otherwise, there's a high change you're going to find yourself lying in the dirt. XD For some reason, youtube has a habit of slowing down my clips and ruining the old age effect I use. XP Sorry about that. It really irritates me. Song: "Pump It" by the Black Eyed Peas
