2012 O'Brien Awards - Horse of the Year [00:37]
Michaels Power, owned and bred by Jeffrey Snyder of New York, NY was voted Three-Year-Old Pacing Colt of the Year and Canada's Horse of the Year. A winner of 14 starts in 20 outings and more than $1.4 million last season, Michaels Power gave trainer Casie Coleman and driver Scott Zeron their first Little Brown Jug victory. The Camluck colt also etched his name in the Ontario Sires Stakes record books by virtue of his lifetime best 1:48.1 victory in the OSS Super Final. His season also included wins in the Confederation Cup, a division of the Somebeachsomewhere, Upper Canada Cup, Canadian Breeders Championship, and three OSS Gold Final titles.

1990 Pimlico Special : ABC Broadcast [17:41]
Criminal Type scored a far-reaching victory in the Pimlico Special Saturday. The 5-year-old son of Alydar ran the fastest 1 3/16 miles in Pimlico history, sent his trainer, Wayne Lukas, over the $100-million mark in career purses and exposed a story about how fine the line is between being a hero and a heel as a jockey's agent. Under Jose Santos, who was riding him for the first time, Criminal Type shadowed Ruhlmann all the way around, edged past him with about 50 yards left and won by a neck in the first $1-million race ever run in Maryland. Ruhlmann, the second betting choice at 2-1, finished 1 1/4 lengths ahead of De Roche, a 34-1 shot who finished 1 1/2 lengths in front of Mi Selecto. Opening Verse, made the 3-2 favorite by a crowd of 15850 on a cool, overcast day, flattened out in the stretch and wound up fifth, beaten by about 3 1/4 lengths. Wind Splitter finished sixth, and after him in the 10-horse field came Silver Survivor, Gorgeous, With Approval and Music Merci. Criminal Type's time was 1:53, breaking by a fifth of a second the record that Blushing John set in winning the Special last year. The Special is the same distance as the Preakness, which will be run here next Saturday, and the fastest Preakness times have been Secretariat's unofficial 1:53 2/5 clocking in 1973 and Tank's Prospect's matching time in 1985. Criminal Type was the fourth betting choice and paid $17.40, $6.80 and $5.20. Ruhlmann paid $4.80 and $4.60, and De Roche's show price was $10.20. A ...

1989 Norfolk Stakes [00:51]
Wayne Lukas saddled Grand Canyon Sunday for a 1 1/2-length victory, and the next race for the $825000 yearling is the Breeders' Cup competition for 2-year-old colts, which will be run Nov. 4 at Gulfstream Park. "Capote went into the Breeders' Cup more seasoned than this colt, but this horse is a lot stronger than Capote was," Lukas said. "The thing is, though, it's been tough to evaluate the 2-year-olds this year. "We won't be able to tell until we get them all on the same track. You'll have to take a hard look at the past performances before you can sort them out." Grand Canyon, who is by Fappiano out of Champagne Ginny, a L'Enjoleur mare, may be joined by two horses from Lukas' New York division--Richard R. and Sir Richard Lewis--in the Juvenile. Chris McCarron, who rode Grand Canyon in the Norfolk, was aboard Richard R. for his fourth-place finish in the Champagne at Belmont Park Saturday. Single Dawn, trying to give trainer Ron McAnally his third major victory in two days, finished second to Grand Canyon, 3 1/2 lengths ahead of the third-place finisher, 62-1 shot Due to the King. The crowd of 31319 had to wait several minutes before the stewards disallowed a foul claim by Corey Nakatani, the rider of Due to the King, who said his mount lost momentum when Grand Canyon came over in front of them in mid-stretch. Grand Canyon collected $166440 of the $277440 purse for Lukas and his partner, William T. Young of Lexington, Ky. Grand Canyon ran the 1 1/16 miles in 1:43 1/5 ...

1989 Alabama Stakes [03:38]
For those hard-to-please critics who had been complaining that Open Mind is a brilliant horse with a bland style, the 3-year-old filly responded with a gritty performance on a rainy day at Saratoga. At the top of the stretch of the $232400 Alabama Stakes, Open Mind's chances appeared to be as gloomy as the day itself. She was ahead of only one horse, stablemate Lea Lucinda. She trailed the front-running Dearly Loved by more than five lengths and was running in the middle of the track, where the muddy surface had the consistency of butterscotch pudding. Open Mind had gone into Saturday's 109th Alabama with a nine-race winning streak dating to last November, but now, at 1-5 odds, she looked hopelessly beaten. Her critics were ready to add Open Mind's name to the list of fallen Saratoga favorites, which includes Man o' War, Gallant Fox and Secretariat. Before a crowd of 30309, Open Mind chose not to become a part of that gallery. "Of all the fillies I've ridden," Angel Cordero would say later, "I've never been on one who tries as hard as this filly. If she were a person, she'd want to work seven days a week." Cordero went to his whip 16 times--seven times from the right and nine from the left--and it took that 16th whack to get owner Gene Klein's filly to the wire, a neck before Dearly Loved. Open Mind might win 10 more races in a row, if she is allowed to stay on the track long enough, but no victory will come any harder than Saturday's. Jean Cruguet was aboard Dearly Loved ...
