In addition, a priceless segment of SPECTACULAR BID is also included showing him blaze to glory in the 1980 Woodward Stakes, Malibu Stakes, San Fernando and Strub Stakes all in their entirety from gate to wire.
As if that's not enough, an extended feature called, "Disqualified!", is shown which shows some of racing's most legendary and controversial disqualifications: 1973 Champagne Stakes (SECRETARIAT is brought down and STOP THE MUSIC is placed first), 1978 Travers Stakes (AFFIRMED wins but ALYDAR is moved up to first and AFFIRMED taken down to second) and, of course, the worst call in history, the 1970 Champagne Stakes where the great HOIST THE FLAG wins by a landslide but is taken down to LAST PLACE!! In addition to this race, the viewer gets a rare look at two more obscure races of HOIST THE FLAG's: 1970 Cowdin Stakes and the 1971 Bay Shore Stakes (HOIST THE FLAG's last race).
And since I have pity for you - the viewer, I must WARN YOU...there are a few totally CORNY and LAME attempts at comedy throughout this particular monthly volume so be on the lookout for your remote to fast forward at a second's notice when you see race caller Dave Johnson's face. That's the only hint you'll get...and be glad I mentioned this because I was going to let you find out on your own but had second thoughts...I wouldn't wish this on anyone, let alone an unsuspecting victim...you're WELCOME!
