1991 Kentucky Derby: Full ABC Broadcast [01:09:44]
Supposedly suffering from slow workouts, fast competition and even the wrong pedigree, Strike the Gold won the 117th Kentucky Derby today with a rousing end run through the homestretch that defeated Best Pal by nearly two lengths and buried the other favorites by much more. The 3-year-old colt, often called "a horse of destiny" by his trainer, Nick Zito, had won only two races before he entered the starting gate for the most prestigious race of all. But he won this one with a dramatic move to the outside as the 16 colts turned for home. And once clear of the herd, he zoomed through the stretch, overtook Sea Cadet, outraced Best Pal and won all the roses. At the finish, in a race billed as a free-for-all among four star colts, Strike the Gold had 1 3/4 lengths on Best Pal, the speed horse from California. Then it was 1 3/4 lengths to Mane Minister, who went off at 86-1 and paid $25.60 for $2 just for running third. Next came another outsider, Green Alligator, a 16-1 shot, and then came the champion: Fly So Free, winner of the Eclipse Award last year as the best juvenile colt in the country. And far up the track in 10th place came Hansel, the record-setting winner of the Jim Beam Stakes and the favorite with the betting public when the horses went to the post today. Sea Cadet, another California speedball, played his proper role by taking the lead and holding it until he was nailed in the stretch and faded to eighth. Zito, an emotional man who dreams that "the Pearly Gates ...

Emcee - 2012 Forego Stakes (G1) [01:38]
Emcee gave trainer Kiaran McLaughlin and owner Godolphin Racing their fourth Grade 1 win of the 2012 Saratoga Race Course meet by taking the $500000 Forego by 4 ½ lengths on Saturday. "It's an honor to train for Godolphin and to have such quality horses," said McLaughlin, who earlier in the meet teamed with Godolphin to post Grade 1 scores in the TVG Coaching Club American Oaks and Alabama with Questing and the Travers via dead heat with Alpha. "It makes my job easier, but I have a great team of people behind me, and it's been an unbelievable meet. It's hard to even believe. It will take some time to sink in." Emcee, who was seeking his first Grade 1 in three starts at the level, pressed pacesetter Pacific Ocean in second through a quarter-mile in 22.64 seconds and a half in 45.38. Jersey Town made a bold run along the inside to pass the top two in the run into the stretch before Emcee overtook that rival inside the final furlong and drove clear late. Hamazing Destiny nipped Jersey Town by a neck for second. Off as the 3-2 favorite, Emcee returned $5.10 for a $2 win wager and ran seven furlongs in 1:21.00.

Turbulent Descent - 2012 Ballerina (G1) [01:39]
Odds-on favorite Turbulent Descent earned her fourth career Grade 1 victory in the first start for her new connections, taking over at the top of the stretch and going on to a 1 ¼-length win over Derwin's Star in Friday's $500000 Ballerina at Saratoga Race Course. Purchased privately by Michael Tabor, Mrs. John Magnier and Derrick Smith this summer and sent to trainer Todd Pletcher, the 4-year-old Congrats filly was making her second start of 2012 and first since taking the Desert Stormer Handicap on June 17 at Betfair Hollywood Park. Away from the gate alertly, Turbulent Descent raced three-wide alongside Island Bound and Nicole H as All Due Respect led through an opening quarter-mile in 23.02 seconds, with the half going in 45.33. Moving up with Nicole H on the turn, Turbulent Descent quickly assumed command straightening for home and was never threatened as she galloped under the wire in 1:22.13 for the seven furlongs.
