1995 Sword Dancer Invitational Handicap [02:58]
Kiri's Clown, a 6-year-old horse who likes to come busting out of the gate to take the lead and try to hold it, came busting out today and did hold it. And by the length of his neck, against a late rush by Awad, he scored a resounding upset to win the $250000 Sword Dancer Invitational on the Saratoga turf. Not only that, but he broke Fraise's track record of 1992 by two-fifths of a second, running the mile and a half on the inner turf course in 2:252/5 . He also broke the losing streak of his trainer, Phil Johnson, who hadn't saddled a winner in New York State in 68 races going back to April. In between, though, Kiri's Clown traveled to New England in June and won the New Hampshire Sweepstakes. Kiri's Clown gave his latest performance only five days after running seventh in the Daryl's Joy Handicap. Johnson explained in the winner's circle that his horse would rather race every five days than work out every five days. "If you have a good work horse," he said, "you don't do the Daryl's Joy. But he doesn't work very well, and sometimes horses lose interest working." Johnson and his jockey, Mike Luzzi, planned on having the early lead; the only question was whether they would hold it. "We thought we would get the lead," Luzzi said, "but I didn't think we would get it the way he did. Basically, my horse was just galloping along. He got challenged at the three-eighths pole, and then when Awad came to him, he just got real game." When Awad came to him, they had only a few ...

Emma's Encore - 2012 Victory Ride (G3) [01:33]
Hall of Fame trainer H. Allen Jerkens bolstered his reputation as the "Giant Killer" at Belmont Park Saturday afternoon, sending out 39-1 Emma's Encore to upset previously undefeated Agave Kiss in the Grade 3, $150000 Victory Ride. After breaking alertly, Emma's Encore settled into fifth as favored Agave Kiss dueled with Jamaican Smoke through a blistering opening quarter-mile in 21.46. Jamaican Smoke headed the favorite to run a half-mile in 44 flat as Emma's Encore began to gain momentum. Third at the top of the stretch, Emma's Encore kicked clear through the final sixteenth of a mile to win by 2 ¾ lengths. Her final time for six furlongs was 1:08.89 and she returned $80 as the longest shot in the field of six sophomore fillies.

Clear Attempt - 2012 Poker S. (G3) [02:10]
Clear Attempt rewarded his connections for their confidence by springing an 8-1 upset in the Grade 3 Poker on Wednesday at Belmont, giving Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott and owners Martin and Pam Wygod their second straight victory in the one-mile turf race. Even though Clear Attempt was eligible for the second allowance condition, Mott and the Wygods, who won the 2011 Poker with Courageous Cat, decided to enter the regally bred 4-year-old in the $150000 Poker. The colt handled the rise in class with aplomb, tracking pacesetter Yield Bogey behind fractions of 48.12 and 1:11.22, wresting command in midstretch, and shrugging off a challenge from even-money favorite Compliance Officer to win by 1 ¾ lengths. Yield Bogey finished third, an additional half-length behind Compliance Officer.
