New York Watch: Parting Words [02:17]
Parting Words had something to say Sunday on the Aqueduct turf, coming from off the pace to break her maiden and join the New York Watch, which profiles up-and-comers that have recently cleared the maiden ranks at Aqueduct, Belmont Park, and Saratoga Race Course. Making her second start, Parting Words veered outward at the break, bumping a rival to her right. She settled into a clear spot in eighth and was kept outside by jockey Ramon Dominguez along the backstretch run, split horses while making smooth headway with two furlongs left, and grabbed the lead from runner-up Celestial Kitten at the sixteenth pole to prevail by a length. "She broke crooked and banged around with a couple of horses and they usually they don't overcome something that severe, but she overcame all that and showed a lot of class," said winning trainer Barclay Tagg. Parting Words, the 7-2 third choice, ran the 1 1/16-mile distance in 1:45.49, completing the final furlong in 5.88 seconds. In her lone previous effort, a turf event at Saratoga on August 27 that has produced two other next-out winners, Parting Words finished fourth after racing three wide on both turns. "She broke a little slow and got hung wide the entire way, and it was hard to judge her off that," said Tagg. "But apparently her number was pretty good, so we had hopes for her. We had a couple of small setbacks with her and we couldn't get her back into a race. It's been a long stretch between starts, but she proved our feelings today ...

Yursa Hanover Goes Wire to Wire in Conway Hall at Vernon Downs [02:34]
Yursa Hanover blew away six standout rivals while breezing to a 1:54.2 triumph in Friday night's $150000 Conway Hall open mare trotting contest at Vernon Downs. Second choice to Windsong Soprano in the sixth race wagering, Yursa Hanover ($6.90) went right to the lead from post four and led through splits of :27.3, :57-flat and 1:26 en route to a 1-1/2 length verdict over the crown-wagering choice. Autumn Escapade finished another half-length back in third, while Buck I St. Pat, racing for purse money only due to a scratch of stable mate Southwind Wasabi, finished fourth. Daniel Dube did the driving for trainer Benoit Baillargeon as the 4-year-old daughter of Windsong's Legacy-Yankee Topaz earned her third season's score and 12th lifetime tally. Richard Berthiaume owns the career-winner of $820835, who posted her 1:52.3 record earlier in the campaign.

Here Comes Ben - 2010 Forego Handicap [05:27]
SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY - Trainer Charles Lopresti and his 4-year-old colt Here Comes Ben passed their Grade 1 audition Saturday at Saratoga and the sprint division may have picked up a new significant player. Here Comes Ben, under Alex Solis, split horses at the three-sixteenths pole then wore down Big Drama to win the $250000 Forego Stakes by three-quarters of a length. Big Drama, second to Majesticperfection in the Grade 1 Alfred G. Vanderbilt a month ago, held second by 1 1/2 lengths over favored Vineyard Haven. They were followed in the order of finish by Warrior's Reward, Girolamo, Bribon, Omniscient, and Checklist. The win was the fourth straight for Here Comes Ben, but his first in a graded stakes. It was also Lopresti's first starter in a Grade 1 and first starter at Saratoga. "I was little intimidated coming up here," Lopresti said. "I've never run in a Grade 1 before. I know he has the numbers, I know Alex has been telling me this is a really good horse," Lopresti said. "We brought him up here two weeks before, he trained really well, he did everything right. We had to see if he was this kind of horse and he proved it today." The Forego field contained several Grade 1 winners, including Vineyard Haven, Warrior's Reward, and Bribon. Under Solis, Here Comes Ben was saving ground in the back of the pack while Checklist set fractions of 22.55 seconds and 45.29 for the opening half-mile. Approaching the quarter pole, Solis took Here Comes Ben off the rail, came into ...
