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 ...

1994 Jockey Club Gold Cup [12:16]
Holy Bull, resting in his stall in Kentucky, probably scored the greatest victory of his career yesterday when Colonial Affair won the $750000 Jockey Club Gold Cup at Belmont Park and knocked Tabasco Cat out of contention for Horse of the Year. On a day billed as New York's preview of the Breeders' Cup series, Colonial Affair made a power drive from sixth place and outran Devil His Due to the wire by two and a half lengths, giving senior horses a sweep of the top spots. Less than one length back came the European traveler Flag Down, and then it was half a length to Tabasco Cat, winner of the Preakness and Belmont Stakes. And far, far away in last place came Go for Gin, winner of the Kentucky Derby and another beaten candidate for post-season honors. The loss meant that Tabasco Cat had no chance to snatch the championship from Holy Bull, who went home for the year after winning 8 of his 10 races in dramatic fashion. And it meant that whoever wins the Breeders' Cup Classic at Churchill Downs on Nov. 5 also has no chance to catch Holy Bull for the sport's top prize. "Holy Bull is a charismatic horse," said Wayne Lukas, the trainer of Tabasco Cat. "I would like to see him make some more of the classics. But if he's Horse of the Year, I'll stand up at the awards dinner and applaud. "I felt we were in a position where we needed to win today to sway the vote." But Lukas, whose personal and professional fortunes have been rallied this year by Tabasco Cat, still surfaced as a ...

Racing goleó y da pelea,primer gol [00:50]
Una vez que pitó Patricio Loustau, los primeros instantes mostraron a la visita con mayor tenencia de pelota y, de hecho, los de De Felipe también contaron con la primera jugada clara. Luego de una gran atajada de Saja tras un cabezazo, la pelota le quedó dentro del área a Cauteruccio, que inexplicablemente desde abajo del arco atinó a patearla al travesaño. Racing, por su parte, apostaba a la velocidad de sus jóvenes promesas en ataque, Luciano Vietto, Ricardo Centurión y Lucas Fariña. A los 22, los de Luis Zubeldía tuvieron su primera incursión seria en ataque. Centurión fue buscado con un pase en profundidad por izquierda y, con su velocidad, avanzó para dentro del área del Cervecero enganchar hacia el centro y soltar un derechazo que salió rasante y muy cerca del poste derecho del arquero Trípodi. Y a los 33, de la combinación de los tres de arriba, llegó el gol de Racing. La llevó Fariña, pivoteó Vietto, la continuó el enganche y en el borde del área, cuando parecía que perdía la pelota, un derechazo bajo de Centurión se le metió pegado al palo derecho al arquero de la visita. Y a los 39 el artesano del primero marcó el 2-0. Quien armó la jugada que se ensució apenas en el borde del área de Quilmes fue Vietto, pero Fariña se la llevó y definió con un toque sutil cuando Trípodi salía presuroso a achicar. A pura velocidad, en una contra, la primera jugada a fondo de los segundos 45 la tuvo Vietto. Pero su remate, después de un enganche, fue embolsado por el arquero ...

Dunkeld Cup 2012 by Landserv & Campolina [07:11]
With thanks to Landserv and Campolina, we traveled to the 2012 Dunkeld Cup, in the Grampians, Victoria to experience a day in the Life of a Thoroughbred Horse Trainer. Campolina owned and trained Tayla Lee, a grey mare, ran in race 8 and was accompanied on her trip by an enthusiastic crew from Campolina, including owner Ian Bell & Trainer Andrew Dillon. This story gives a little insight into not only the huge effort and dedication required to successfully campaign a thorough bred but also the excitement of race day from the perspective of those who are directly involved -- not just making a punt from the fence! It's insightful & its exciting -- I hope you enjoy it!!
