The Key to Training Success - Patience, Consistency, Kindness [01:41]
Spring 2012 (First year off the track) 5yo off the track Quarter Horse to be used for barrel racing and dressage. Had an issue of head tossing at the start of his training. This issue was fixed with NO equipment changes, NO rough training methods or harsh bits/equipment (was being ridden in a Myler snaffle), NO trank or other types of supplements used to "calm" a horse (ie - equine chill) and NO professional riding/training (only riding done by myself without professional instruction). FYI - this issue was fixed within about a month, maybe less. The tools used to fix this issue were: PATIENCE - getting frustrated causes tension in the rider which transfers to the horse making it impossible for him to relax into the contact and become supple and engaged. Also, losing patience and yanking the rein when soft, consistent contact doesn't seem to be creating results is counterproductive and could irritate the horse or (on a more sensitive horse) upset the horse to the point where they do not trust you enough to work for you. CONSISTENCY - In order for an issue like this to be resolved on a young horse, the rider must always be giving the same message as to not confuse the horse. Every time the head is tossed, contact is held and leg pressure is increased to push the horse into the contact. When he softens and brings his head down he is rewarded - a "good boy" and a pat on the neck with a slight decrease in rein contact tells him he did something right. If this is done the same ...

Sr .Champ Onboard 10/13/12 - Twin State / Feature Race [00:31]
Onboard footage of the Sr. Champ Feature Race from Twin State Speedway in New Hampshire. Today is the Fall Challenge 2012 Special Event. We got to race on the big 1/3 mile oval, not the short oval. I thought that racing on the bigger oval was a little bit more fun than the smaller oval, since you can run wide open on the bigger oval. My Dad forgot to record the Heat Race. I guess his age is starting to kick in. I started in 3rd for the Heat Race and finished 2nd. For the Feature Race, I started 2nd. I somewhat knew that we were going to be at a disadvantage when I ran in Practice. Dave in the #5 kart and the other three people in the #11, #13 and #82 kart ran on Open Motors. I ran on my WKA Animal Motor and it was a huge mistake to run on that motor. We should have brought our Open Motor to the race, since I would have a chance at the victory. We ran well though with the WKA Animal Motor and was somewhat competitive. I possible had a chance to pull off an upset today and win with a WKA motor, while the rest of the field ran on Open Motors. Unfortunetely, on the first lap, my race ended. The #82 kart got around me going into the first turn. I had a run on him coming out of the first bend, but he cut me off on the outside line. In the second bend, he tries to pass Dave in the #5 kart and loses it. I almost successfully evaded him, but my kart got into the marbles and slammed the outside wall. I bent my right front spindle and damaged the right front tire. This is why I can ...

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.

1985 Breeders' Cup Day [09:22]
Proud Truth, once the favorite for last spring's Kentucky Derby but fifth in that race and sidelined all summer with an injury, stormed from last place to beat Gate Dancer by a head and win the $3 million Breeders' Cup Classic yesterday in an upset at Aqueduct Race Track. The victory by the almost-forgotten son of Graustark, coupled with earlier results among the seven Breeders' Cup races, scrambled several championship pictures: . * Chief's Crown, who was favored to win the Classic and with it the champion 3-year-old and horse-of-the-year titles as well, finished a tired fourth, beaten 9 3/4 lengths. * The horse-of-the-year candidate Lady's Secret was walloped by her stablemate Life's Magic in the $1 million Breeders' Cup Distaff.

1996 Goodwood Breeders' Cup Handicap [03:22]
Alphabet Soup was disqualified in one of the more controversial calls in recent memory, making Savinio the winner of the $303300 Goodwood Breeders' Cup Handicap at Santa Anita After a lengthy delay, Oak Tree stewards Ingrid Fermin, Dennis Nevin and Tom Ward ruled Alphabet Soup, the 4-5 favorite who finished a length in front of Savinio, interfered with Savinio and Dare And Go passing the wire the first time in the 1 1/8-mile race. To the sound of some of the loudest boos heard at a local track in years and to the displeasure of jockey Chris McCarron and trainer David Hofmans, the 5-year-old roan was disqualified and placed third behind Savinio and Dare And Go, who was making his first start since upsetting Cigar in the Pacific Classic almost two months earlier. While watching a head-on shot of the incident, Ward explained the stewards' position. "The three horse [Powerful Punch, who finished last in the field of four], bobbles at the break, drops out of and isn't a factor," said Ward. "[Alphabet Soup] angles toward the rail and everybody has plenty of room now. "There's continued pressure, just a gradual drift inside. You can take a look at these tractor marks [a tractor pulls the starting gate into position] and see where he started. "Now, [Alex] Solis [on Dare And Go] has got to make a decision, the turn is coming up and he's got to get back out of there. When he does, his horse gets a little rank with him and he ends up breaking stride and losing position. "You couldn ...
