Robert Evan’s Tonalist rallied late to edge Commissioner to win the June 7 Belmont Stakes (gr. I). California Chrome, bidding for the Triple Crown, finished in a dead-heat for fourth with Wicked Strong behind Medal Count. The 1 1/2-mile distance of the Belmont at Belmont Park has been “heartbreak highway” for 3-year-olds since Affirmed last won the Triple Crown 36 years ago in 1978. The time for the 12 furlongs was 2:28.52. Tonalist, a son of Tapit –Settling Mist, by Pleasant Colony, was bred in Kentucky by Woodslane Farm.

Super Ninety Nine rolled to an 11 1/4-length win in the $300000 Southwest Stakes (gr. III) Feb. 18 for Susan and Charles Chu’s Tanma Corporation, muddling the 3-year-old picture even more as the top three finishers from the Smarty Jones Stakes finished off the board at Oaklawn Park. Conditioners of sophomores formerly in high regard at Oaklawn will likely blame track conditions for their sound defeat; the Arkansas oval dodged showers for much of the day, but the skies opened up 30 minutes before the featured race and the track was rated sloppy. That defeat, however, came at the hands [More]
Sunday Silence, who raised more questions than he answered when he beat Easy Goer by two and a half lengths in the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago, proved himself a worthy Triple Crown contender today by winning the 114th and closest Preakness Stakes ever at Pimlico Race Course.

By 1878, Muybridge had successfully photographed a horse in fast motion. This series of photos taken in Palo Alto, California, is called Sallie Gardner at a [More]
