1997 Suburban Handicap Grade I [02:29]
Skip Away confirmed yesterday that he has risen to the top of his class, battling back to win in the homestretch over Will's Way and Formal Gold in the 111th running of the Suburban Handicap at Belmont Park. Those three horses may be the East Coast's answer to the handicap stars of the West: Gentlemen, Siphon and Sandpit. In any case, they gave stirring performances yesterday. Skip Away opened the year with four straight losses since the memorable day last October when he defeated the great Cigar by a head in the Jockey Club Gold Cup. That was his sixth victory of 1996, and it clinched his election as the champion 3-year-old colt of last season. But this season, he did not win until May 31, when he outdueled Formal Gold by a head with Will's Way third in the Massachusetts Handicap. Then he removed all doubts yesterday. He again showed peak form and the instincts of a classy fighter as the three horses turned for home at the head of the six-horse field with three celebrated jockeys positioning them for the final quarter-mile: Shane Sellers aboard Skip Away, Jerry Bailey on Will's Way and Mike Smith riding Formal Gold. Skip Away was running third behind his two Eastern rivals, but he challenged Will's Way for the lead once on the turn for home, wrested the lead away briefly and then entered the stretch still third and apparently finished. But Sellers moved him from the softer rail to the outside, and Skip Away found the stamina to crank up another rally as he rolled through ...

2000 Suburban Handicap - Lemon Drop Kid [00:34]
Lemon Drop Kid took some fast and serious strides toward racing's year-end honors yesterday when he outran Behrens by two and a half lengths and won the $500000 Suburban Handicap at Belmont Park in the second-fastest time in the history of the 114-year-old race. He not only defeated Behrens, who ran second to the world-class Dubai Millennium in the $5 million Dubai World Cup in March, but also flew the mile and a quarter in 1:584/5 . That time was just three-fifths of a second off the track record, set in the Suburban in 1991 by In Excess. And Lemon Drop Kid also became only the fourth horse to race a mile and a quarter in the Suburban in less than two minutes. Edgar Prado, who also rode Lemon Drop Kid to a seven-length score in the Brooklyn Handicap last month, made no secret of the fact that he had kept Behrens blocked on the rail. ''I knew I had Behrens pinned on the inside, and at the top of the stretch, I wanted to get the jump on him,'' Prado said. ''My horse just took off, and I knew Behrens was chasing me.'' Scotty Schulhofer, who trains Lemon Drop Kid, conceded that ''the position we were in didn't hurt us.'' ''He just keeps on running,'' Schulhofer said. ''He's finally got focused, and Prado is the big thing as far as the improvements go.'' And Jeanne Vance, who owns Lemon Drop Kid, said: ''This one is extra special because Behrens was in the race.'' Both Schulhofer and James Bond, the trainer of Behrens, predicted a return match in the Whitney at Saratoga on ...

2000 Whitney Handicap Grade I [01:52]
with blinkers, a change in equipment Schulhofer made after Lemon Drop Kid finished third by two lengths to winner Golden Missile in the Pimlico Special Handicap (G1) on May 13. Equipped with blinkers, Lemon Drop Kid won both the June 11 Brooklyn (G2) and July 4 Suburban (G2) Handicaps. "After Edgar rode him at Pimlico, and told me Lemon Drop Kid saw the gate out of the corner of his eye when he turned for home and lost his momentum, I figured, well, I better put them on him," Schulhofer ...
