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. WinStar Farm’s Commissioner went for the early lead from post 8 [More]
I created this video to share some of my absolute favourite moments in horse racing over the past 25 years. The music I’ve used also happens to be some of my favourite stuff. The best race is saved until last, a defining and spine tingling moment in Irish sporting history. The screen setting is small enough, so adjust to suit yourself, but play it good and loud to achieve the best effect!

With a final burst of speed in the last few strides, Pleasant Colony added the 106th Preakness today to his Kentucky Derby victory and needs only the Belmont Stakes to become the l2th winner of thoroughbred racing’s Triple Crown. Pleasant Colony surged to a one-length victory over Bold Ego, who had led from the start, as 74-1 Paristo, a supplemenatry nominee, finished third, two more lengths back. Pleasant Colony rewarded his backers in the record Pimlico crowd of 84113 with $5 for each $2 bet. So thorough was his victory in this mile-and-three-sixteenths race that it seems unlikely that any [More]
In light of the recent announcement from the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, that it plans to end the province-wide Slots at Racetracks program in March 2013, the following two and a half minute video was created to illustrate the wide range of people who will be dramatically affected by this decision. Of the more than 60000 people involved directly or indirectly with horse racing in Ontario, here are just a few of the individuals that make up the heartbeat of Ontario’s vital and valuable industry. Finance Minister Dwight Duncan has been falsely referring to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming [More]
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]
Date: August 19, 2004 Track: Del Mar I’m happy to report no one was hurt. There are two parts to this video. First is a clip of the “head-on” camera shot, which clearly shows three maintenance workers diving as they realize the field is about to trample them. Notice the bucket that they leave on the course. The second part is the full race. At the 2:29 mark, you can see where the maintenance workers scramble, but it’s not nearly as clear as the head-on shot. From Steve Andersen’s report in the Daily Racing Form: “Three members of the Del [More]

This video is meant to represent the racing legend Barbaro. His story is a sad one, seeing that he was a great racehorse with a lot of potential. He could’ve been great. But in his last race, he badly broke his right hind leg. Several treatments were tried, but the strain on the rest of his legs was too much to bear. I and several others had high hopes of his recovery, but Barbaro was in too much pain and was put down. I have some videos of him in here, but as with all horse race videos, the quality [More]

Ruler On Ice, dismissed at 24-1, sat a perfect trip under a patient Jose Valdivia, Jr., taking the lead at the top of the stretch and holding off another longshot, Stay Thirsty, to win Saturday’s 143rd running of the Grade 1, $1 million Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park. Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom, the 5-2 favorite, fell back to last shortly after the start when he clipped heels with Mucho Macho Man, who was bumped by Isn’t He Perfect. Under jockey John Velazquez, who lost his left stirrup and didn’t regain it until the first turn, Animal Kingdom made a [More]

As Louisville prepares for the 138th Kentucky Derby, horse racing in the US is under the spotlight over one its most controversial aspects. While there is big money for winners, every year thousands of under-performing thoroughbreds end up at the slaughterhouse. A total of 23 race horses either died or were injured on tracks across the US on the day of the competition last year. Now, a rescue centre is giving some lucky steeds a second chance. Al Jazeera’s Kimberly Halkett reports from Kentucky.

History and the long, demanding stretch at Belmont Park had caught up with Spectacular Bid. With a short distance remaining in the Belmont Stakes last Saturday, he was leading, seemingly drawing away from his seven rivals. He was four lengths in front of 12-to-1 shot General Assembly and looking just as strong as he had while rattling off victories in 12 consecutive stakes races. Just 660 yards to go to the third Triple Crown in three years. But then Spectacular Bid began to behave like a very fat man trying to run up a very steep hill. In the stretch [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. The blackish colt from California raced head and head with Easy Goer for the length of the stretch before regaining the lead in the final yards to win by a long nose. The last time a Preakness was decided in a photo finish was when Affirmed held off Alydar by a neck [More]
