2003 American Handicap - Candy Ride [01:49]
In the mid-1990s, trainer Ron McAnally showed Sid Craig tapes of an Argentine-bred colt who looked like the real goods. The asking price for Gentlemen, the horse in the tapes, was $1 million. That was about $700000 more than Craig had paid for his future champion, the Argentine-bred Paseana, a few years before, so he and McAnally passed on Gentlemen. The happy end to the story belonged to RD Hubbard, who eventually became the principal owner of Gentlemen as the horse carved a US career that totaled $3.3 million in purses. Early this year, McAnally went to Del Mar to show Sid and Jenny Craig more race tapes of another Argentine prospect. The asking price for Candy Ride would be high, McAnally knew, but the Craigs had been known to open their vault before. They paid $2.5 million for Dr Devious, their 1992 English Derby winner. To get the undefeated Candy Ride, who won his three races in South America by 28 lengths, the Craigs were going to have to spend $900000. "That's a lot of money," Sid Craig said Friday, "but I've never seen Ron this excited about a horse before." He was standing in the winner's circle at Hollywood Park on the Fourth of July, wearing a red-white-and-blue necktie and celebrating Candy Ride's first stakes victory in the US, a three-quarter length victory over Special Ring in the $150000 American Handicap. Candy Ride has won five in a row overall and earned $124800 for the Craigs, whose accountants will be pleased to know that bigger days might be ahead ...

Beetlejuice bets on the horses [00:39]
Horse racing is an equestrian sport that has a long history. Archaeological records indicate that horse racing occurred in ancient Babylon, Syria, and Egypt. Both chariot and mounted horse racing were events in the ancient Greek Olympics by 648 BC. In the Roman Empire, chariot and mounted horse racing were major industries. Thoroughbred racing was, and is, popular with the aristocrats and royalty of British society, earning it the title "Sport of Kings." The style of racing, the distances and the type of events vary significantly by the country in which the race is occurring, and many countries offer different types of horse races. There are three major types of racing: flat racing, steeplechasing (racing over jumps), and harness racing, where horses trot or pace while pulling a driver in a sulky. A major part of horse racing's economic importance lies in the gambling associated with it, an activity that in 2008 generated a world-wide market worth around US$115 billion. Various types of racing have given rise to horse breeds that excel in the specific disciplines of each sport. Breeds that may be used for flat racing include the Thoroughbred, Quarter Horse, Arabian, Paint, and Appaloosa. Steeplechasing breeds include the Thoroughbred and AQPS. Harness racing is dominated by Standardbred horses in Australia, New Zealand and North America, but several other breeds, such as the Russian Trotter and Finnhorse, are seen in Europe.
