Able One: three years on a repeat Champions Mile winner [01:33]
Three years after his first victory in the race, Able One added a second Champions Mile to his battle honours in the 2010 renewal. Huge credit must go to his trainer John Moore who has nursed and nurtured the race's first dual winner since Bullish Luck through a variety of stress fractures which have interfered with the progress of his career. Remarkably, Able One seems a better horse now than he was when winning under Mick Kinane's cunning ride to make all in 2007. "It seems he just gets better with age," remarked owner Dr Cornel Li Fook-kwan. The story of the 2010 Champions Mile is not complex, and it's a familiar one to any who saw Able One's victory in the Chairman's Trophy over course and distance on 4 April. On both occasions the horse travelled comfortably in fourth, then kicked early in the straight and held all opposition at bay. The only difference this time was that Darren Beadman was unable to secure the rail from the number 8 draw. But it made very little difference to the outcome as Able One once again delivered his now trademark burst of speed early in the run for the line and soon had all rivals in trouble. It was left to the superbly consistent Fellowship to give closest chase but, as expected by his connections who recognise the mile just stretches his stamina, the seven-year-old just flattened out in the last 100m, and Able One held him off by a fairly comfortable three quarters of a length.

1995 Early Times Manhattan Handicap Grade I [05:05]
Awad rallied from last to first to nose Blues Traveller at the wire in the Grade I $500000-added Early Times Manhattan over the mile and a quarter inner-turf course. "This is a mile-and-a-half horse," said Dave Donk, Awad's trainer. "So this is a huge race for him. He's got to get lucky, he needs pace, and he got it." The final time of 1:58 2/5 was eye popping --just four ticks off the track record. And Awad returned $16.20 for a $2 win bet. But a photo was needed to separate the two. "I was just screaming, 'Come on wire, come on wire,' " said Chris mccarron, who rode Blues Traveller.
