Teen Horse Racing Jockey Angel Suarez - Incredible Rookie Year [01:14]
At the age of 17, high school sophomore Angel Suarez told his mother he wanted to drop out of school and ride racehorses for a living, shocking his mother who thought that with his good grades he might one day become a doctor. Following his dream, Suarez moved to Bensalem, Pennsylvania in January 2012 after attending a jockey training school in his native Puerto Rico. A year later, Suarez -- who races primarily at Parx and Penn National Racetracks -- has $3.4 million in purse earnings, the most of any apprentice jockey in the country, and has been named one of the three finalists for the prestigious Eclipse Award as Apprentice Jockey of the Year.

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 ...

No Rain No Rainbow Wins At Turfway Park [04:58]
NO RAIN NO RAINBOW outrun for a half, angled out on the second turn, made a four wide run into the stretch and drew clear late. BREAK OF SILENCE close up while off the inside, challenged three wide after a half, gained a short lead on the second turn and held on gamely to be second best. POLITICAL RACE forwardly placed from the start, made a run at the leaders while four wide on the second turn but gave way in the drive. PROUD WARRIOR within striking distance early along the inside, moved off the rail on the second turn and tired. NINJA CAT set the early pace four wide, moved in to the two path on the second turn and faded in the drive. GO BRAY BOO five wide early, was no factor. PAULISTANO prompted the pace in the three path and stopped.

1994 Mother Goose Stakes - Lakeway [06:10]
Belmont Week came to a record-setting close yesterday when the California filly Lakeway won the Mother Goose Stakes by more than four lengths over Cinnamon Sugar and by 10 lengths over Inside Information, and pranced to the head of the class of 3-year-old fillies. It was one day after the California colt Tabasco Cat won the Belmont Stakes and moved to the head of the class of 3-year-old colts, and Lakeway gave an even more powerful performance. She not only won for the fifth time in six starts but buried the hometown favorite, Inside Information, who had won six of her seven races. And she did it by knocking one and one-fifth seconds off the record for the race in its 38th running. The two favorites ran together stride for stride for more than half a mile, but then Kent Desormeaux nudged his filly, and Lakeway took charge. She collared Inside Information with three-eighths of a mile to go, edged past her turning for home and widened the lead relentlessly down the stretch. As she flashed home, she had 4 1/4 lengths on Cinnamon Sugar, a 27-1 long shot, who in turn had six lengths on Inside Information. They cruised in fast fractions of 1:083/5 for three-quarters of a mile and 1:332/5 for the mile. And Lakeway completed the mile and an eighth in 1:462/5 , shattering the record for the race set in 1978 by Caesar's Wish, but still a full second off the track record for the distance set in 1973 by the incomparable Secretariat. It was also the fifth record set in three days of ...
