1984 BREEDERS' CUP (Entire Televised Broadcast from HOLLYWOOD PARK / Commercial MID-LENGTH Version)
You'll think you are watching a Hollywood cliffhanger, complete with a flock of movie stars and former President Ford all in attendance. But in the true Hollywood tradition, the best is set for last in the dramatic inaugural Breeders Cup Classic, featuring a three-horse stretch duel full of bumping and an inquiry at the end!
1) JUVENILE COLTS - Originally set at a mile and featuring the battle of upcoming stars CHIEF'S CROWN, TANK'S PROSPECT and SPEND A BUCK, along with highly-regarded SPECTACULAR LOVE.
2) JUVENILE FILLIES - Also a mile, here we find the Canadian star BESSARABIAN taking on WEEKEND DELIGHT, TILTILATING and FINE SPIRIT...but watch what happens when long-shots FRAN'S VALENTINE, OUTSTANDINGLY and DUSTY HEART come charging...a 70-1 filly wins - or does she...the inquiry light goes on, and judge for yourself who should or should not have been disqualified!
3) SPRINT - Can FIGHTING FIT overcome recent broken bones in his feet? Watch him take on fellow stars EILLO and TANGENT sporting a five- race winning streak, PLEASURE CAY, PAC MANIA and COMMEMORATE.
4) MILE - Watch fine filly ROYAL HEROINE, who finished second to JOHN HENRY in the Arlington Million, take on tough turfsters COZZENE, TSUNAMI SLEW, LEAR FAN, TIGHTS and NIGHT MOVER. COZZENE is coming off setting two track records, but ROYAL HEROINE hammers them with a stunning victory in 1:32.3 - a new American turf record!
5) DISTAFF - Originally 1-1/4 miles, this is the race where PRINCESS ROONEY proves she's one of history's most underrated fillies. Watch her destroy such toughies as MISS OCEANA, LIFE'S MAGIC and ADORED by seven lengths, giving her 17 wins in 21 lifetime starts!
6) TURF - Meet STRAWBERRY ROAD, the best Australian galloper since PHARLAP! But can he beat such stars as WHO'S FOR DINNER, the speedy mare ALL ALONG, 1982 Kentucky Derby winner GATO DEL SOL and MAJESTY'S PRINCE? Watch them all get stunned by 53-1 long-shot LASHKARI in the first huge upset in Breeders Cup history.
7) CLASSIC - Can the great SLEW O'GOLD overcome three recent quarter cracks to end his career as a champion in history's first $3 million race? Or will it be WILD AGAIN, the long-shot supplemented to the race for $360,000? How about the great GATE DANCER, the speedy PRECISIONIST, DESERT WINE or TRACK BARRON? Drama ensues as three of our stars zig-zag and bump down the stretch...the inquiry light goes on again, the second time today! Who will or won't get disqualified this time, and will you agree with the stewards' decision?
A must for any collector - highlights galore, including segments on how superstars NORTHERN DANCER, SEATTLE SLEW and ALYDAR also became great sires. Also a report on injured champion JOHN HENRY and a segment on horse racing movies through the years. Watch as CHRIS McCARRON becomes history's first jockey to win $10 million in purses in one year! And you won't want to miss WILD AGAIN's lightning fast early fractions in the Classic - can he hang on after running so fast so early?
