Secretariats last race - Victory for the greatest horse in modern times [03:10]
was an American Thoroughbred racehorse, who in 1973 became the first US Triple Crown champion in twenty-five years, setting new race records in two of the three events in the Series—the Kentucky Derby (1:59 2/5), and the Belmont Stakes (2:24)—records that still stand today. Secretariat was sired by Bold Ruler (a grandson of Nearco) and foaled to Somethingroyal. He was foaled at Meadow Farm in Caroline County, Virginia. Like the equally famous horse Man o' War, Secretariat was a large chestnut colt and was given the same nickname, "Big Red." Owned by Penny Chenery (aka Penny Tweedy), he was trained by Lucien Laurin and mainly ridden by fellow Canadian jockey Ron Turcotte, along with apprentice jockey Paul Feliciano (first two races), and veteran Eddie Maple (last race). He raced in Penny Chenery's Meadow Stable's blue and white checkered colors and his groom was Eddie Sweat. The story of Secretariat began with the toss of a coin in 1968 between Christopher Chenery of Meadow Stables and Ogden Phipps of Wheatley Stable. The idea of a coin toss came from Phipps, the owner of Bold Ruler, and Bull Hancock of Claiborne Farms as a way to get the very best mares for Bold Ruler, and when the toss went their way, to add well-bred fillies to their own broodmare band. Bold Ruler was considered one of the important stallions of his time. He had a fine balance between speed and stamina, having had a frontrunning style but the stamina to go 1 1/4 miles; he finished 3rd in the 1957 ...

R Heat Lightning - 2010 Spinaway (G1) [01:52]
Trainer Todd Pletcher broke his own Saratoga Race Course record for wins in a single season in style, sending out R Heat Lightning to victory in Sunday's 119th running of the Grade 1, $250000 Spinaway for 2-year-old fillies. Pletcher came into the Spinaway with 35 wins, and R Heat Lightning's Spinaway score catapulted him past his previous high mark, which he set in 2003 and 2004 when the meet was four days shorter than the current 40 days. R Heat Lightning, one of four entrants for Pletcher in the Spinaway, trailed the field following a quarter mile in a sharp 21.89 before launching a wide rally on the far turn. Alienation had seized a clear advantage at the top of the stretch, but R Heat Lightning made a steady run to grab the lead in the final furlong and open up to a four-length decision. Finishing third, 2 ½ lengths behind Alienation, was favored Valiant Passion, another Pletcher trainee.

Discreetly Mine-2010 King's Bishop Stakes [01:46]
SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY - Saturday's $250000 King's Bishop Stakes may not have gone exactly as Todd Pletcher would have envisioned it earlier in the day. But the end result was just what the meet's leading trainer was looking for after Discreetly Mine led throughout to post a 1 1/4-length decision over a game Bank Merger in the Grade 1 dash for 3-year-olds. Discreetly Mine had used stalking tactics to win his last two starts, and that was the same type of trip Pletcher was expecting again in the seven-furlong King's Bishop. But after it became readily apparent the main track was speed-biased through the afternoon, Pletcher and jockey John Velazquez opted to alter Discreetly Mine's usual running style and put the versatile colt right on the lead if possible. That strategy ultimately paid big dividends. Breaking alertly, Discreetly Mine was able to outrun the speedy Bulldogger to the lead from the inside, setting a lively pace of 21.90 and 44.11 seconds in the process. Discreetly Mine shook off his early pursuer entering the stretch but then had to fend off serious challenges from Bank Merger and Latigo Shore before ultimately edging clear at the end. Bank Merger, who entered the race undefeated in two previous starts, rallied four wide off the final turn and continued resolutely to finish second. Latigo Shore was another two lengths further back in third after coming widest into the stretch. D' Funnybone, the last horse to defeat Discreetly Mine, in the Grade 2 Woody Stephens ...
