1996 Goodwood Breeders' Cup Handicap [03:22]
Alphabet Soup was disqualified in one of the more controversial calls in recent memory, making Savinio the winner of the $303300 Goodwood Breeders' Cup Handicap at Santa Anita After a lengthy delay, Oak Tree stewards Ingrid Fermin, Dennis Nevin and Tom Ward ruled Alphabet Soup, the 4-5 favorite who finished a length in front of Savinio, interfered with Savinio and Dare And Go passing the wire the first time in the 1 1/8-mile race. To the sound of some of the loudest boos heard at a local track in years and to the displeasure of jockey Chris McCarron and trainer David Hofmans, the 5-year-old roan was disqualified and placed third behind Savinio and Dare And Go, who was making his first start since upsetting Cigar in the Pacific Classic almost two months earlier. While watching a head-on shot of the incident, Ward explained the stewards' position. "The three horse [Powerful Punch, who finished last in the field of four], bobbles at the break, drops out of and isn't a factor," said Ward. "[Alphabet Soup] angles toward the rail and everybody has plenty of room now. "There's continued pressure, just a gradual drift inside. You can take a look at these tractor marks [a tractor pulls the starting gate into position] and see where he started. "Now, [Alex] Solis [on Dare And Go] has got to make a decision, the turn is coming up and he's got to get back out of there. When he does, his horse gets a little rank with him and he ends up breaking stride and losing position. "You couldn ...

1978 Travers Stakes - Affirmed -vs- Alydar [05:41]
With the infield open to the public, a record crowd of 50122 jammed its way into the Spa, shattering the previous record by more than 15000. There was no way anyone in attendance or the millions watching on TV could foresee the bizarre events that would ensue. What began as a glorious celebration of the sport would end in bitterness and controversy. For the first three-quarters of a mile, everything was going as predicted. Affirmed, favored at 3-5, was sitting comfortably in second and about to dispose of the pace-setting Shake Shake Shake, who had been setting leisurely fractions of :24 and :48. Alydar, sent off at even-money, was in third, two lengths behind Affirmed. Everyone was waiting anxiously for something to happen. When would Affirmed blow past Shake Shake Shake? How and when was Velasquez going to attack Affirmed, and how was he going to try to avoid looking into the eye of the tiger this time? The answer soon became obvious. Cordero took Shake Shake Shake off the rail and began drifting out into Affirmed, opening a huge hole for Alydar, who had been running just inside of Nasty of Bold. Velasquez, as if expecting that hole to open, wasted no time and shot Alydar right through along the vacated rail. Affirmed by now had taken over the lead from the tiring Shake Shake Shake, only to have Alydar come charging through on his inside going into the far turn. The crowd let out a resounding cheer and braced for the battle they had been waiting for. Pincay, sensing the ...

1995 Sword Dancer Invitational Handicap [02:58]
Kiri's Clown, a 6-year-old horse who likes to come busting out of the gate to take the lead and try to hold it, came busting out today and did hold it. And by the length of his neck, against a late rush by Awad, he scored a resounding upset to win the $250000 Sword Dancer Invitational on the Saratoga turf. Not only that, but he broke Fraise's track record of 1992 by two-fifths of a second, running the mile and a half on the inner turf course in 2:252/5 . He also broke the losing streak of his trainer, Phil Johnson, who hadn't saddled a winner in New York State in 68 races going back to April. In between, though, Kiri's Clown traveled to New England in June and won the New Hampshire Sweepstakes. Kiri's Clown gave his latest performance only five days after running seventh in the Daryl's Joy Handicap. Johnson explained in the winner's circle that his horse would rather race every five days than work out every five days. "If you have a good work horse," he said, "you don't do the Daryl's Joy. But he doesn't work very well, and sometimes horses lose interest working." Johnson and his jockey, Mike Luzzi, planned on having the early lead; the only question was whether they would hold it. "We thought we would get the lead," Luzzi said, "but I didn't think we would get it the way he did. Basically, my horse was just galloping along. He got challenged at the three-eighths pole, and then when Awad came to him, he just got real game." When Awad came to him, they had only a few ...
