1991 Jockey Club Gold Cup [05:07]
Festin, the Argentine horse who has earned more than $2 million by charging from last place to first, did it again yesterday when he charged through the homestretch at Belmont Park and snatched the $850000 Jockey Club Gold Cup from Chief Honcho and Strike the Gold. It was a classic performance in a classic race for the 5-year-old traveler, who seems to thrive in New York. He has raced 10 times this year, from California to Massachusetts, but he hadn't won in three starts in four months since he zoomed from last to first to win the Nassau County Handicap at Belmont in June. And with the same style and the same result on the same track, he repeated the performance in the Gold Cup. He did it exactly four weeks before the ultimate racing test of the year, the Breeders' Cup series at Churchill Downs. And for Festin and most of the other stars of the season, the road to Louisville was next. In fact, Festin was already packing. "He's leaving tomorrow for Kentucky," said Ron McAnally, who trains the horse for Burton Kinerk. "We were going to take him back to California, but all horses need time to build up their strength." Twilight Agenda Sets Pace For three-quarters of a mile yesterday, Festin shared last place with Strike the Gold, another late runner who hadn't won since he took the Kentucky Derby five months ago. Up front, the lead was held from the start by Twilight Agenda, the California speed horse flown cross-country by D. Wayne Lukas only three days before the race. He ...

1994 Jockey Club Gold Cup [12:16]
Holy Bull, resting in his stall in Kentucky, probably scored the greatest victory of his career yesterday when Colonial Affair won the $750000 Jockey Club Gold Cup at Belmont Park and knocked Tabasco Cat out of contention for Horse of the Year. On a day billed as New York's preview of the Breeders' Cup series, Colonial Affair made a power drive from sixth place and outran Devil His Due to the wire by two and a half lengths, giving senior horses a sweep of the top spots. Less than one length back came the European traveler Flag Down, and then it was half a length to Tabasco Cat, winner of the Preakness and Belmont Stakes. And far, far away in last place came Go for Gin, winner of the Kentucky Derby and another beaten candidate for post-season honors. The loss meant that Tabasco Cat had no chance to snatch the championship from Holy Bull, who went home for the year after winning 8 of his 10 races in dramatic fashion. And it meant that whoever wins the Breeders' Cup Classic at Churchill Downs on Nov. 5 also has no chance to catch Holy Bull for the sport's top prize. "Holy Bull is a charismatic horse," said Wayne Lukas, the trainer of Tabasco Cat. "I would like to see him make some more of the classics. But if he's Horse of the Year, I'll stand up at the awards dinner and applaud. "I felt we were in a position where we needed to win today to sway the vote." But Lukas, whose personal and professional fortunes have been rallied this year by Tabasco Cat, still surfaced as a ...

1998 Woodward Stakes [02:37]
Skip Away raced into thoroughbred history yesterday when he won the 45th Woodward Stakes at Belmont Park against an all-star field. With the victory, his ninth straight, he drew ever closer to the stature and the money record of the great Cigar. Skip Away, the durable gray 5-year-old purchased three years ago for $22000 by the trainer Sonny Hine for his wife, Carolyn, won by a length and three-quarters over Gentlemen, the 6-year-old iron horse from Argentina, with Running Stag third, Free House fourth and Coronado's Quest fifth and last. Coronado's Quest, the only 3-year-old in the field, saw his five-race winning streak end. Jerry Bailey, who won his fourth Woodward Stakes and his third in the last four years, including two aboard Cigar, was asked to rank Skip Away and Cigar. ''It's like having two kids,'' he said. ''Which one do you love most?'' Sonny Hine, clamoring for respect for his horse for months, said: ''He is some horse, the best there is. He is one of the best I've ever seen. He is so brilliant.'' Carolyn Hine said, ''We want him to get the respect he deserves.'' Richard Mandella, the California trainer whose Dare and Go ended Cigar's winning streak at 16 two years ago, led the cheers for his Gentlemen but acknowledged Skip Away's achievement. ''At the top of the stretch, I thought we had a big chance to win this one,'' Mandella said. ''But Skip Away just got away from us. He showed everyone just how much of a tremendous horse he is.'' Shug McGaughey, the ...

Little Talks [Clinic with Portia] [04:21]
So, this was supposed to be uploaded on New Years Day... But, whatever. This is Portia: 16.2 (or 16.3, dunno) Bay Mare OTTB (Off Track Thoroughbred) This are from a clinic with Angelo Telatin at Thunderhead/Rutherford Balanced Equestrian.

Portia is not an easy horse to ride sometimes but she tries so hard and I love her! Yes, I was jumping with my eyes closed, and this is the first time I've EVER jumped 3', the highest I'd jumped her before this was 2'3. **I do not own the song!!** I do, however own all the clips but feel free to use them as long as you send me the link when you're done :) Comment, Rate, Subscribe! But please no crit, I do have a trainer.... ENJOY! :D

Crush Flatting - January 7th 2013 [06:20]
Flatwork of Crush on January 7th, 2013. I rode him yesterday with completely disconnected stirrups and he was great, but the reason I lunged him today before my hack was because we got freezing rain the night before, and it was wet, cold, and very windy. I just lunged him for 5 - 10 minutes so he wouldn't be silly. Asking price is $4500. Please contact me if interested.
