Ghostzapper vs. Saint Liam - 2004 Woodward (G1) [02:11]
In winning six of his first eight career starts, Stronach Stable's Ghostzapper always had breathing room. Okay, there was that one race he won by a half-length, but other margins of his victories ranged from four and quarter to 10 and three-quarter lengths. He was obviously a good horse, but no one was really sure how tough he was. Saturday afternoon, 10251 Belmont Park fans got their answer. Sent off as the 2-5 post-time favorite, Ghostzapper dug in under jockey Javier Castellano after being forced to the middle of the track by Saint Liam, endured bumping and still managed to win the 51st running of the Grade 1, $500000 Woodward fro three-year-olds and up at nine furlongs -- the Opening Weekend feature of Belmont Park's Fall Championship Meet. Not only Ghostzapper he win in spite of not having everything go his way, his winning time of 1:46 1/5 rivaled that of Mineshaft last year and In Excess in the 1991 Woodward. Only Forego, who won the 1976 Woodward in 1:45 4/5 carrying 135 pounds, Dispersal, who carried 123 and won the 1990 Woodward in 1:45 4/5; and Precisionist, who won the 1986 Woodward in 1:46, have run this race faster. Precisionist, Mineshaft and Ghostzapper all carried 126 pounds in their Woodwards.

COLLECTION Won THE MERCEDES-BENZ HONG KONG DERBY 2009 [03:35]
Race Meeting :22/03/2009 Sha Tin Race 9(487) Hong Kong Group One - 2000 Metres THE MERCEDES-BENZ HONG KONG DERBY 2009 HK$ 16000000.00 Going : Good Course : Turf - "A+3" Course 1st COLLECTION(K217)D Beadman 2nd THUMBS UP(K005) C Soumillon 3rd MR MEDICI(K218) E Saint-Martin Cool, calm Collection cruises to Mercedes-Benz Hong Kong Derby glory 22 March 2009 Collection is unquestionably the latest superstar of Hong Kong racing after a resounding victory in the Mercedes-Benz Hong Kong Derby at Sha Tin on Sunday. Backed into odds of 2/5 favourite, the shortest priced runner in the race for a decade, the British import did not disappoint his legions of admirers with a one and a half length victory from market second pick, Thumbs Up, who in turn was nearly three lengths in front of the third home, Mr Medici. It was the third win in the race for trainer John Moore after Makarpura Star in 1995 and Viva Pataca in 2006. Jockey Darren Beadman, meanwhile, was savouring his first success in the HK$16m classic and earned many post-race plaudits after a brilliant, take-no-prisoners ride. Few Derby winners can ever have done it as tough as Collection but still come home such a dominant champion. As expected, the early exchanges of this ten-furlong event were sedately run. Beadman settled the imposing Peintre Celebre gelding in 12th at least eight lengths from the lead before allowing him to cruise up to second place with half a mile to race. Off the home turn, Beadman kicked on and never ...
