Horse racing oddity: incredible stretch run [06:18]
Donnaguska, a first time starter owned by Billy Hays and trained by Joe Woodard, makes a remarkable stretch run to win her debut by two and a quarter lengths at Hawthorne Race Course on October 23, 2008. As track announcer Peter Galassi noted, Donnaguska was "far, far, far, far back" early under jockey Israel Ocampo. The three-year-old daughter of Yonaguska was sent off at 17-1, the second longest shot in the field of nine. She is number three, but for most of the video that doesn't matter because you won't see her. According to the official chart she was about 23 1/2 lengths behind at the top of the stretch, meaning she ran her final quarter-mile in roughly :21 1/5.

Footage from Bay Meadows shot on December 26, 1985 [11:21]
Here is some footage from Bay Meadows Racecourse my father shot with the family camcorder in the mid 1980s. The opening exterior shot was filmed in the spring or summer of 1984, while the racing footage was filmed on December 26, 1985. Jockeys mentioned in this video include Hall of Famer Russell Baze (then 27-years-old), Vicki Aragon (now Vicki Baze after marrying Russell's cousin, Gary), Chad Schvaneveldt, Ken Tohill, and retired riders Roberto Gonzalez, Chris Lamance, and Tom Chapman. Miss Chanago, the filly who won the $17000 allowance feature that day and who was described by father described as a "damn nice horse," was ridden by Marco Castaneda for Bill Morey, Jr. It'd be her final career start. John Gibson was the track announcer.

SUPER DON Lewiston "Track Record" [04:23]
Sunday May 14th 1989... SUPER DON trots to a wire to wire track record age 13 at "Lewiston Raceway" in 1989. This was his 3rd start back after suffering a rear suspensory ligament injury in "New York" that it was said he would never return. The following weekend marked the final day of the spring meet and witnessed the record being lowered by INDIANAPOLIS 2:01.1. That mark stands to this day as the track closed it's doors for the final time later in the year after the fall meet; making SUPER DON the fastest aged trotting gelding in Lewiston Raceway's history. Race called by Shame Bakedon who i think became track announcer at "Bangor Raceway".
