Easy Goer - 1989 Belmont Stakes [02:49]
Easy Goer had been favored to beat his West coast rival in the first two legs of the Triple Crown, but for the Belmont Stakes it was Sunday Silence who was the odds-on choice after narrow victories in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness. But Easy Goer turned the tables in the Belmont, barreling home a resounding eight-length winner in 2:26, the fastest running since Secretariat.

Inherit the Gold - 2011 Excelsior (G3) [02:04]
Inner track dynamo Inherit the Gold reeled off a fifth consecutive win Saturday afternoon at Aqueduct Racetrack, brilliantly transferring his form to the main track to take the 99th running of the Grade 3, $100000 Excelsior. It was the first graded stakes victory for the 5-year-old son of Gold Token, who patiently stalked front-running Understatement through early fractions of 24.75 and 49.47. Easily overtaking the pacesetter as they turned for home, Inherit the Gold drew off to win by 6 ¼ lengths. Sent off as the 7-5 favorite in the field of five, Inherit the Gold completed 1 1/8 miles in 1:50.34 returned $4.80 to his backers in the Caribbean Day crowd of 6317. "It was a perfect trip," said Jimmy Hooper, who earned his first graded stakes win as a trainer in the Excelsior. "Eddie [Castro] knew he might have to stay a little closer today and he did. It's whenever he decides he wants to make the move. Eddie's done a great job with him." Castro piloted the New York-bred gelding to all four of his inner track victories this winter -- two optional claimers, the Mr. International overnight stakes and the Kings Point -- and has been Inherit the Gold's regular rider since October. "There was only one horse with speed in the race, so I could stay fairly close," Castro said of the Excelsior. "I rode him the same today; I didn't want to change. When I asked him to move, he did. He's getting better. It was a tough race today. There were a lot of nice horses." Now 7-3-2 from 14 ...

Kauto Star :|| THE KING [01:35]
Can King Kauto make it five consecutive King George victories on Saturday. I think so. He's one of, if not THE best steeplechaser since Arkle, and his spectacular victories have lit up the world of jump racing. His record his phenomenal when you think about it-four King George's in a row, two Cheltenham Gold Cups, Two Tingle Creeks, an Ascot Chase, three Betfair Chases, an Aon Chase, an Old Roan Chase, two grade ones in ireland. He's won everything! It's a shame his regular partner, Ruby Walsh will be unable to ride him, but the great jockey Tony Mccoy is a more than worthy substitute in my opinion. The greatest jockey ever on one of the greatest horses ever, what a combination! While my heart will always hold a special place for the mighty Denman above all others, the horse who is the reason I started watching racing and who I hope can regain his Gold Cup in March that he won in 2008, Kauto Star for me is the kind of horse that jump racing is about-fast, versatile, brave and a great jumper! If he is able to win his fifth King George it would be a very special day for racing. Good luck King Kauto!
