1997 Suburban Handicap Grade I [02:29]
Skip Away confirmed yesterday that he has risen to the top of his class, battling back to win in the homestretch over Will's Way and Formal Gold in the 111th running of the Suburban Handicap at Belmont Park. Those three horses may be the East Coast's answer to the handicap stars of the West: Gentlemen, Siphon and Sandpit. In any case, they gave stirring performances yesterday. Skip Away opened the year with four straight losses since the memorable day last October when he defeated the great Cigar by a head in the Jockey Club Gold Cup. That was his sixth victory of 1996, and it clinched his election as the champion 3-year-old colt of last season. But this season, he did not win until May 31, when he outdueled Formal Gold by a head with Will's Way third in the Massachusetts Handicap. Then he removed all doubts yesterday. He again showed peak form and the instincts of a classy fighter as the three horses turned for home at the head of the six-horse field with three celebrated jockeys positioning them for the final quarter-mile: Shane Sellers aboard Skip Away, Jerry Bailey on Will's Way and Mike Smith riding Formal Gold. Skip Away was running third behind his two Eastern rivals, but he challenged Will's Way for the lead once on the turn for home, wrested the lead away briefly and then entered the stretch still third and apparently finished. But Sellers moved him from the softer rail to the outside, and Skip Away found the stamina to crank up another rally as he rolled through ...

2010 Wood Memorial (G1) - Eskendereya [02:00]
Taking command at the top of the stretch, heavily favored Eskedereya blew away five rivals to take the 86th running of the Grade 1, $750000 Wood Memorial on Saturday afternoon at Aqueduct Racetrack by an authoritative 9¾ lengths over Jackson Bend. The margin of victory was even greater than his 8½-length win over Jackson Bend in his previous start in the Fountain of Youth on February 20 and reaffirmed Eskendereyas status as a leading contender for the May 1 Kentucky Derby. In the 85 previous runnings of the Wood, 24 winners have gone on to claim the favorites role in the Run for the Roses; 11 have won. Ridden by John Velazquez, the 3-year-old chestnut son of Giants Causeway settled in third behind fractions of 24.32, 49.21 and 1:13.54 set by longshot Most Happy Fella, then ranged up three wide on the far turn to take over straightening for home. With Velazquez glancing back over his shoulder, Eskendereya continued to widen the margin between himself and the rest of the field, hitting the wire in 1:49.97 for the 1 1/8th miles. There was more there than what we saw, even as impressive as it was, said Todd Pletcher, who trains Eskendereya for Zayat Stables. The thing that Johnny did today was take pretty good care of him from the eighth pole to the wire.
