This is Secretariat’s historic 1973 Belmont Stakes victory. I uploaded the original video which is over 1 million hits 5 years ago. I can now rip at a much higher quality and I wanted to put the upgrade on Youtube for everyone to enjoy. 🙂 Unfortunately the footage is from 1973 so it will never be the HD we now have come to enjoy, but this should look good on 27″ screens or higher compared to the old one. What makes this video different from all other Belmont 1973 footage on youtube? Well, the elongated coverage of the race. It [More]

Super Ninety Nine rolled to an 11 1/4-length win in the $300000 Southwest Stakes (gr.

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]

In 1973 after winning the Kentucky Derby in (still) record time, and winning the Preakness, Secretariat was about to become a legend, and only the Belmont Stakes stood in the way.

equinenow.com for many more race horses and thoroughbreds. This nicely built colt is by stallion Excellent Secret, who won over $130000 on the track. He is correct, with big bones and nice confirmation. He is halter broke and has had some light round pen work to get him raedy for his next step. He is ready to go into race training, and is willing and eager to learn. This colt is Texas Accredited. Although I have marked his temperment at a 5, it is because he is a colt and should not be misrepresented as a beginner’s horse. However, he [More]

The unbeaten mare contested a jump-out, her first piece of serious racetrack competition since her famous Royal Ascot victory in June.

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]
1. The idea that the agreement between the Ontario government and the horse racing industry is anything other than a partnership is offensive. At the expense of the racing industry, facilities were improved to accommodate slot parlors on behalf of the government — slot parlors that are in fact competition for an industry that had developed itself over many decades. The agreement, to this day, pours 75% of all slots revenue into Ontario government coffers, gives 5% to the municipalities where these facilities are located, and allots the remaining 20% to the industry. Industry money maintains jobs while providing a [More]
