Awesome Feather - 2012 Nasty Storm S. [01:59]
Undefeated champion Awesome Feather ran her record to 10-for-10 Thursday afternoon at Belmont Park as she came off an eight-month layoff to post a dominating 11 ¼-length victory in the $85000 Nasty Storm overnight stakes. Revving up for a planned start in the Grade 1, $2 million Breeders' Cup Ladies' Classic at Santa Anita on November 2, the slightly built filly was away from the gate alertly, and then settled in third as Daddy's Honor and All Due Respect ripped through an opening quarter-mile in 22.63 seconds, with the half going in 44.96. Given her cue by jockey Jeffrey Sanchez on the turn, Awesome Feather barreled past the pacesetters and swept into the stretch with a sizeable lead and opened up under a hand ride to hit the wire in a swift 1:33.47 for the mile. "Six weeks out from the Breeders' Cup, I think she needed a race, so I'm not at all upset about winning by that many and having a strong final time," said Chad Brown, who trains the 2010 juvenile filly champion for Frank Stronach. "I think she needed the race and we got the race we needed." The 1-5 favorite, Awesome Feather returned $2.60 for a $2 win bet as she added the Nasty Storm to her 5 ¾-length victory in January's Sunshine Millions Distaff, her only other start of 2012.

1985 Breeders' Cup Day [09:22]
Proud Truth, once the favorite for last spring's Kentucky Derby but fifth in that race and sidelined all summer with an injury, stormed from last place to beat Gate Dancer by a head and win the $3 million Breeders' Cup Classic yesterday in an upset at Aqueduct Race Track. The victory by the almost-forgotten son of Graustark, coupled with earlier results among the seven Breeders' Cup races, scrambled several championship pictures: . * Chief's Crown, who was favored to win the Classic and with it the champion 3-year-old and horse-of-the-year titles as well, finished a tired fourth, beaten 9 3/4 lengths. * The horse-of-the-year candidate Lady's Secret was walloped by her stablemate Life's Magic in the $1 million Breeders' Cup Distaff.

2011 Cox Plate [02:25]
A pending storm caused some disruption at the start of the race but, once it was underway, Williams settled midfield as planned, with favourite Helmet and Underwood Stakes winner Lion Tamer setting the early tempo. Pinker Pinker dropped back towards the tail of the field with some 800 metres to go but began to move forward from the 600 metres, with Williams content to bide his time on the inside, waiting for an opening. Sticking to the rails, Pinker Pinker was right on the heels of the leaders rounding the turn and when Jimmy Choux got the better of Helmet near the 200 metres, Williams, who had enjoyed a perfect rails run, set out after the new leader. "A run just came for me on the fence, so I took it," he said.
