1987 Dwyer Stakes [03:07]
Gone West, who floundered while trying to provide Woody Stephens with his sixth straight Belmont Stakes winner last month, won back his national prominence yesterday with a 12 1/2-length triumph over Pledge Card and Polish Navy in the $230400 Dwyer Stakes at Belmont Park. Gone West benefited from a drying track that favored front-runners and rail-runners, but was still very impressive and clearly the best horse in the field. Polish Navy outbroke him, but Gone West shot up on the inside to take the lead within the first quarter-mile and the duel was over. Gone West led at every call while posting steady fractions of 23 2/5, 47, 1:10 3/5 and 1:35 3/5. Gone West finished the one and one-eighth miles in the fine time of 1:48 2/ 5 under Eddie Maple and paid $4.20 as the favorite in a field of six. Pledge Card ran down Polish Navy in the final furlong and beat him by a half a length for second. Another eight lengths back was KC's Best Turn, and Jazzing Around and Simply Majestic brought up the rear. The victory was a bright spot in a gray Belmont meeting for Stephens. His Belmont Stakes streak was broken June 6 when Gone West finished sixth, 23 3/4 lengths behind Bet Twice, and the trainer had not won a race since sending out Nudge to an allowance victory that day. The Dwyer was only the third victory of the Belmont meeting for Stephens, the first coming when Gone West won the opening-day Withers Stakes on May 6. ''He looked like a race horse today,'' Stephens said of Gone West ...

1979 Belmont Stakes: CBS Broadcast [18:03]
History and the long, demanding stretch at Belmont Park had caught up with Spectacular Bid. With a short distance remaining in the Belmont Stakes last Saturday, he was leading, seemingly drawing away from his seven rivals. He was four lengths in front of 12-to-1 shot General Assembly and looking just as strong as he had while rattling off victories in 12 consecutive stakes races. Just 660 yards to go to the third Triple Crown in three years. But then Spectacular Bid began to behave like a very fat man trying to run up a very steep hill. In the stretch curve he drifted out from the rail. His lead diminished. He was having trouble getting air into his lungs, and his legs seemed to desert him. With a furlong to go, he was a beaten horse, seconds away from joining the company of Pensive, Tim Tam, Carry Back, Northern Dancer, Kauai King, Forward Pass, Majestic Prince and Canonero II—the band of Derby and Preakness winners that came a cropper at Belmont. The winner, Coastal, was one of those lightly raced colts that periodically come out of old-line barns to waste Belmont pretenders. The steady Golden Act, spear-carrier-in-chief in the classic races, was second. Bid, who had been described by his trainer, Bud Delp, as the greatest horse ever to look through a bridle, was looking at the nearly four lengths of track between his nose and Coastal's as he finished third. Did Bid's young jockey, Ron Franklin, ride the horse badly? Some of the jocks in the race and those watching from ...

MVHC Combined Test April 2012 Beginner Novice Dressage [03:46]
Ben and I riding through Beginner Novice A at the MVHC combined test. Again, aside from his left canter transition it was a really steady test, especially for him. We scored a 39.5. We tied for first but our collective marks were slighly less stellar than the other person so we placed second instead of first. Really proud of him!
