Quality Road - 2010 Woodward Stakes (G1) [02:13]
Quality Road returned to the winner's circle Saturday afternoon at Saratoga Race Course with an emphatic 4 ¾-length victory over Mythical Power in the 57th running of the $750000 Woodward, his third Grade 1 win of the year. Rebounding from his narrow loss to Blame at Saratoga four weeks ago, the 4-year-old Elusive Quality colt broke sharply and was quickly maneuvered to the outside of longshot Arcodoro, who set opening fractions of 24.06 and 47.76. With three furlongs to go, jockey John Velazquez sent Quality Road up into the lead, and he was never threatened as he rolled through the stretch under mild encouragement to hit the wire in 1:50.00 for the 1 1/8 miles. "He was much, much better than last time," said Velazquez of Quality Road, who this year won the Grade 3 Hal's Hope, the Grade 1 Donn Handicap and the Grade 1 Met Mile before being stunned by Blame at the wire in the Grade 1 Whitney. "In the Whitney, I was struggling to get him going. Today, he was much more willing, and much more on the bridle."

2010 King's Bishop Stakes [01:46]
If there was any question about who is the top 3-year-old sprinter on the East Coast, Discreetly Mine answered it emphatically Aug. 28. The son of Mineshaft rolled through blistering fractions on the speed-favoring Saratoga main track and held off a pair of rivals to win the $250000 NetJet King's Bishop Stakes for his first grade I win. Johnny Velazquez, who earned his third victory in the prestigious race, piloted Discreetly Mine to a 1 1/4--length win in a final time of 1:23.16 for seven furlongs on the fast dirt. It was the third consecutive graded stakes win for the bay colt, who has found a home sprinting after cutting back from a failed try in the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) in May. Todd Pletcher trains the homebred for E. Paul Robsham Stables.

Discreetly Mine-2010 King's Bishop Stakes [01:46]
SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY - Saturday's $250000 King's Bishop Stakes may not have gone exactly as Todd Pletcher would have envisioned it earlier in the day. But the end result was just what the meet's leading trainer was looking for after Discreetly Mine led throughout to post a 1 1/4-length decision over a game Bank Merger in the Grade 1 dash for 3-year-olds. Discreetly Mine had used stalking tactics to win his last two starts, and that was the same type of trip Pletcher was expecting again in the seven-furlong King's Bishop. But after it became readily apparent the main track was speed-biased through the afternoon, Pletcher and jockey John Velazquez opted to alter Discreetly Mine's usual running style and put the versatile colt right on the lead if possible. That strategy ultimately paid big dividends. Breaking alertly, Discreetly Mine was able to outrun the speedy Bulldogger to the lead from the inside, setting a lively pace of 21.90 and 44.11 seconds in the process. Discreetly Mine shook off his early pursuer entering the stretch but then had to fend off serious challenges from Bank Merger and Latigo Shore before ultimately edging clear at the end. Bank Merger, who entered the race undefeated in two previous starts, rallied four wide off the final turn and continued resolutely to finish second. Latigo Shore was another two lengths further back in third after coming widest into the stretch. D' Funnybone, the last horse to defeat Discreetly Mine, in the Grade 2 Woody Stephens ...
