1987 Strub Stakes [01:09]
Carl Grinstead, one of the owners of Snow Chief, thought he had won. Trainer Mel Stute, who was standing in an aisle in the box-seat area, said he had a perfect position in line with the wire and thought Snow Chief had lost. Eddie Delahoussaye was riding Ferdinand, the horse who charged to the finish line almost stride for stride with Snow Chief. Unlike Grinstead and Stute, Delahoussaye wasn't wearing glasses, and his view was much closer. But Delahoussaye couldn't be sure who had won. That's how close the 40th running of the Charles H. Strub Stakes was on Sunday at Santa Anita, with 58806 fans just as unsure of the outcome as the principals. Finally, the photo-finish camera showed that Snow Chief had beaten Ferdinand by the smallest of noses, and Charlie Whittingham, the trainer of the runner-up, shoved his hands in his pockets, looked at the ground and walked around just outside the winner's circle. "Just one more jump," Whittingham said wistfully. Whittingham has won the Strub twice, but in three of the last four years he's found himself saying the same thing. In 1985, it was Precisionist over Whittingham's Greinton, by a nose just as short as on Sunday; in 1984, Desert Wine got to the wire a neck in front of Load the Cannons, another runner from Whittingham's barn. Stute should have been the last observer to doubt that Snow Chief had won, because all week long he had convinced himself that his colt was going to dominate the $516750 race. Snow Chief, a victim of a bone ...

Anton Chigurh - 1st Haydock 29/09/2012 (Panarea Racing) [08:33]
Anton Chigurh wins his third race of the season a Class 2 Haydock handicap at Haydock. Timeform view - ANTON CHIGURH progressed again to defy an 8 lb rise, and is worth keeping on side in this mood, especially as he did well to get up here; mid-field, not clear run and forced to switch 3f out, found plenty to overhaul the front runner inside the last; sure to be of interest again, and given he sees out 1m on testing ground so well, probably worth a try at 1 1/4m at some point.

Saratoga Snacks - 2012 Alex M. Robb [02:11]
Favored Saratoga Snacks scored his first stakes victory Wednesday at Aqueduct Racetrack, leading every step to beat Socialsaul by a length in the $75000 Alex M. Robb for New York-breds. The 3-year-old son of Tale of the Cat, owned by Bill Parcells' August Dawn Farm, was away quickly under jockey Ramon Dominguez, setting fractions of 24.53 and 49.25 while fending off early pressure from Saginaw on the backside. Challenged again on the far turn, Saratoga Snacks pulled clear approaching the quarter pole and had plenty left to repel the late run from 27-1 Socialsaul. His time for 1 1/16 miles was 1:45.21.

Long Run Wins William Hill King George VI Chase 26.12.2012 [07:48]
Horse Racing - Long Run wins second King George VI Chase. Long Run held off a spirited challenge from Captain Chris to win the King George VI Chase for the second time in two years at Kempton. The Nicky Henderson trained horse looked set for a comfortable victory, having taken the lead a mile from the finishing post. But a late charge from Richard Johnson aboard Captain Chris saw him jump into the lead at the last hurdle only for Sam Waley-Cohen to produce as last ditch effort to over-haul his rival with two strides to go. "He was so brave," said Waley-Cohen, who also rode Long Run to victory in the delayed 2010 edition of the race and finished runner-up in 2011. "We wanted to take the sting out of everything else and I asked so much, but he was so brave. "This is his fifth year of competing at this level and he means an enormous amount to us. "That was racing at its best to my mind, that's why we do it. I can't put it into words -- it's an honour and a pleasure." Grand Crus finished third almost a mile back. "It was a brave call to go on when he did and it was the right call to make," Henderson said. "It was a battle out there today and not the best ground for any of them. He's young but has been doing everything right. "You would have to say last year was a disappointment but he's been running good races all the time."

First rodeo of the session to head to the INFR, im not sure about this year going to the INFR, but next year I will! The ground was SUPER deep, and he's such a huge horse that we were basically swimming in the sand during our run. I came in 5th out of 20girls, my time was 17.39 the top 10 girls got points.
