Ryan Briscoe takes the poll for the Indianapolis 500 ( 226.484 mph average) [01:13]
The Australian won it with a daring late-afternoon run and a four-lap average of 226.484 mph. Then Briscoe had to wait, watch and wonder if anyone else could beat it. Canadian James Hinchcliffe nearly did. But after going 227.009 on a warm-up lap, the man who had the No. 1 seed in the pole shootout slowed on each succeeding lap. He led Briscoe through three laps but fell to second, the middle of Row 1, after completing his run with a final lap of 226.137. That gave Hinchcliffe a 226.481 average. The 0.003 difference is the narrowest in 500 history. Ryan Briscoe qualifying for Indianapolis 500. Pre race performance

Secretariat - The Meadow Monster [01:27]
My tribute to the mighty Secretariat. In the first two racing clips you can see this horse's big, powerful stride eating up the turf. His jockey, Ron Turcotte, once said that Secretariat was even better on the grass, after he easily won the Man o' War Stakes, and his piston-like action does seem to handle this surface effortlessly. The super slow motion clip of "Big Red" destroying the field is from the Belmont Stakes. Secretariat was bred by the Meadow Farm in Virginia, and was foaled on March 30th, 1970. kentucky derby preakness stakes belmont triple crown ruffian forego marlboro cup horse racing track

1986 Kentucky Derby - Ferdinand [21:48]
A horse from California was supposed to win the 112th Kentucky Derby, but hardly anybody expected it to be Ferdinand, a 17‚1 shot ridden by a 54-year-old jockey and saddled by a 73-year-old trainer. But at the finish of a slow and roughly run Derby, it was Ferdinand, ridden by Bill Shoemaker and trained by Charlie Whittingham, drawing away to a 21/4- length victory over Bold Arrangement and Broad Brush, with the favored Californians, Snow Chief and Badger Land, off the board. Shoemaker steered Ferdinand, a son of the English triple crown winner Nijinsky II, through heavy traffic from last place to first while covering the mile and a quarter in a dull 2:024/5. Bold Arrangement, an English colt, won a three-way duel for second place, finishing three-quarters of a length in front of Broad Brush. Snow Chief, the 2‚1 favorite, tired badly to finish 11th after taking a brief lead round the far turn. Ferdinand paid $37.40 for $2 to win, the highest Derby payoff since Gato del Sol, also a Californian, also rallied to win from last place and returned $41.40 in 1982. The race was a sentimental triumph for Shoemaker, who became by far the oldest rider ever to win the race while scoring his fourth Derby triumph, and for Whittingham, a Hall of Fame trainer who had never won a Derby. Artistically, though, it was a less successful Derby run before a crowd of 123891. The winner's time over a fast track was the slowest in 12 years, and more horses had rough trips than honest ones today ...
