1991 Jockey Club Gold Cup [05:07]
Festin, the Argentine horse who has earned more than $2 million by charging from last place to first, did it again yesterday when he charged through the homestretch at Belmont Park and snatched the $850000 Jockey Club Gold Cup from Chief Honcho and Strike the Gold. It was a classic performance in a classic race for the 5-year-old traveler, who seems to thrive in New York. He has raced 10 times this year, from California to Massachusetts, but he hadn't won in three starts in four months since he zoomed from last to first to win the Nassau County Handicap at Belmont in June. And with the same style and the same result on the same track, he repeated the performance in the Gold Cup. He did it exactly four weeks before the ultimate racing test of the year, the Breeders' Cup series at Churchill Downs. And for Festin and most of the other stars of the season, the road to Louisville was next. In fact, Festin was already packing. "He's leaving tomorrow for Kentucky," said Ron McAnally, who trains the horse for Burton Kinerk. "We were going to take him back to California, but all horses need time to build up their strength." Twilight Agenda Sets Pace For three-quarters of a mile yesterday, Festin shared last place with Strike the Gold, another late runner who hadn't won since he took the Kentucky Derby five months ago. Up front, the lead was held from the start by Twilight Agenda, the California speed horse flown cross-country by D. Wayne Lukas only three days before the race. He ...

Awesome Feather - 2012 Nasty Storm S. [01:59]
Undefeated champion Awesome Feather ran her record to 10-for-10 Thursday afternoon at Belmont Park as she came off an eight-month layoff to post a dominating 11 ¼-length victory in the $85000 Nasty Storm overnight stakes. Revving up for a planned start in the Grade 1, $2 million Breeders' Cup Ladies' Classic at Santa Anita on November 2, the slightly built filly was away from the gate alertly, and then settled in third as Daddy's Honor and All Due Respect ripped through an opening quarter-mile in 22.63 seconds, with the half going in 44.96. Given her cue by jockey Jeffrey Sanchez on the turn, Awesome Feather barreled past the pacesetters and swept into the stretch with a sizeable lead and opened up under a hand ride to hit the wire in a swift 1:33.47 for the mile. "Six weeks out from the Breeders' Cup, I think she needed a race, so I'm not at all upset about winning by that many and having a strong final time," said Chad Brown, who trains the 2010 juvenile filly champion for Frank Stronach. "I think she needed the race and we got the race we needed." The 1-5 favorite, Awesome Feather returned $2.60 for a $2 win bet as she added the Nasty Storm to her 5 ¾-length victory in January's Sunshine Millions Distaff, her only other start of 2012.
