Shanghai Bobby - 2012 Three Chimneys Hopeful (G2) [01:43]
With the way Todd Pletcher's 2-year-olds have been performing this summer at Saratoga Race Course, it was only fitting for his charge Shanghai Bobby to close out the meet with a rousing victory over favored Fortify and six other juveniles in Monday's Grade 2, $300000 Three Chimneys Hopeful. "We felt like this summer the 2-year-olds were training very well, and we were coming in holding a strong hand," said Pletcher, who saddled 23 juvenile winners among his meet-leading 36 victories. "When some of them start to win and their workmates come up to run, you kind of get a good feel for it. We're not surprised, but we're happy." The victory, his third in as many starts, gave Shanghai Bobby an automatic berth in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile at Santa Anita Park on November 3 as part of the "Win and You're In" series. Having broken his maiden at Aqueduct Racetrack on April 19, Shanghai Bobby also earned a $100000 juvenile bonus from The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) in addition to the winner's purse of $180000. The bonus, instituted this year, is awarded to any 2-year-old maiden winner at Aqueduct or Belmont Park who goes on to win a graded stakes at a NYRA track. "The purse is $300000, you get a $100000 [NYRA] bonus, and I still have shares in [Shanghai Bobby's sire] Harlan's Holiday," said Starlight Racing's Jack Wolf. "I said to my wife, 'This is a pretty big race.' It's nice that NYRA came up with the bonus. It seems to have helped the 2-year-old program." Ridden by ...

New York Watch: Palice Malice [01:35]
Palace Malice became the first North American winner sired by multiple Horse of the Year Curlin with a dominant 3-½ length maiden score Saturday at Saratoga Race Course. The Dogwood Stable color-bearer will now be pointed for the Grade 2, $300000 Three Chimneys Hopeful on Monday, September 3. Sent out by Saratoga leading trainer Todd Pletcher, Palace Malice was making his second career start. In his debut on July 5 at Belmont Park going five furlongs, the bay colt had a rough trip and raced greenly through the stretch, placing second to the promising Carried Interest by a half length, with 6 ¾ lengths separating him and the third-place finisher. In Saturday's seventh race, an $80000 maiden event at 6 ½ furlongs on the dirt, Palace Malice broke alertly, tracked a swift pace while running three wide down the backstretch, took over on the turn, and cruised home to an easy victory under jockey Javier Castellano, while still running somewhat greenly through the stretch. He paid $2.70 to win for a $2 wager as the overwhelming 1-5 favorite in the field of seven. "We expected him to run well like he did first time out and maybe improve, but you never take anything for granted in this business," said Pletcher, who leads the Saratoga meet with 14 victories through Saturday. "He's still learning, and we were happy to see him win like this. It's exciting to see a colt that is bred the way he is to show the kind of speed that he has, and you would think he would only improve as the ...

1996 Preakness Stakes - Full ABC Broadcast [01:03:46]
It was the day of sweet revenge in racing: Louis Quatorze won the 121st Preakness Stakes with Pat Day riding, just 10 days after he was replaced as a jockey by trainer D. Wayne Lukas, who watched today while his record streak ended after six straight Triple Crown victories. Day was signed for his ride by Nick Zito, the most vocal critic of Lukas and his hordes of horses. And they scored the coup of the year when Louis Quatorze, 16th in the Kentucky Derby and fifth in the Preakness betting, led every step of the way to outrun Skip Away by three and a quarter lengths. No Derby horse had ever finished so far back and returned two weeks later to win the Preakness. The closest that Lukas got to extending his streak was third place, with Editor's Note. The 8-5 favorite, Cavonnier, trained by Bob Baffert, finished fourth. Lukas, who entered five horses in the Derby and three in the Preakness, also finished fifth with Victory Speech and seventh with Prince of Thieves. Louis Quatorze even supplied some storybook numbers of his own. He ran the mile and three-sixteenths in 1:532/5 on a fast track, matching the record for the race set 12 years ago by Tank's Prospect, with Day in the saddle that day, too. In fact, this was the fifth time that Day had won the Preakness and the third in a row. The colt, a son of Sovereign Dancer, paid $19 for $2 to win and earned $458120 for his owners -- Bill Condren and Joe Cornacchia, who were the owners of other Zito stars like Strike the Gold and ...
