CURLIN 15-RACE TIME CAPSULE
1) Starts off with his break-out race in the 2007 Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn Park where he demolishes the field with embarrassing ease
2) Then his equally impressive 2007 Arkansas Derby romp
3) Next up is his public works/gallops leading into the 2007 Kentucky Derby as the co-favorite to STREET SENSE
4) Followed by his 2007 Preakness victory
5) And on to the 2007 Belmont where he barely loses to a now already historic race against the filly, RAGS TO RICHES
6) A lackluster performance ensues at Monmouth Park in the 2007 Haskell
7) Followed by redemption with his smashing win in the 2007 Jockey Club Gold Cup against the then best handicap and older colt, LAWYER RON
8) And then his date with destiny winning the 2007 Breeders' Cup Classic sealing Horse-of-the-Year honors for 2007.
Next up is the 2007 Eclipse Awards where CURLIN cleans up with Three-Year-Old Champion and Horse-of-the-Year honors
9) And his successful trip to Dubai where CURLIN is shown arriving on the scene, taking the 2008 Jaguar Cup in a leisurely public workout
10) And crushing the field of the 2008 Dubai World Cup - an intoxicating feat!
11) Reigning Horse of the Year, CURLIN was making his first start since winning the March 29th Dubai World Cup in the 2008 Stephen Foster Handicap at Churchill Downs. He Waltzes to victory in impressive style; the Steve Asmussen trainee was saddled with top weight of 128 pounds this time proving that even packing on weight won't slow him down!
12) CURLIN jumps into Gr. I company right off in his first attempt on turf in the 2008 Man O'War Stakes and manages a very impressive 2nd-place showing - a memorable race in which two other Breeders' Cup winners were in the field: BETTER TALK NOW and RED ROCKS.
13) The 2008 Woodward Stakes is next on CURLIN's list of Grade I victories as he has to work a little harder this time for the win at Saratoga.
14) And CURLIN breaks CIGAR's record for all-time earnings in the 2008 Jockey Club Gold Cup...the second time he won the race!
15) Heartbreak as CURLIN tries to defend his Breeders' Cup Classic crown at Santa Anita for the 2008 Breeders' Cup only to wind up in 4th place not being able to handle the Pro-Ride synthetic surface.
The definitive collection that follows the astonishing and meteoric rise of CURLIN can be yours - a feature that seamlessly follows his every move from the moment he registered on the racing radar complete with generous footage of him in-between each race, in-depth segments and interviews of all his connections including the precarious ownership situation...a virtual non-stop ride through a career in which the racing headlines were that of CURLIN!
