Secretariat inspires new Audi commercial

1973 Triple Crown winner Secretariat is the inspiration for a 2018 Audi S5 Sportback commercial. The car and Secretariat can be seen on track here under the unmistakable palm trees at Santa Anita Park… where he never raced. Ok. Penny Chenery, owner of Secretariat says, “The commercial really is a win for horse racing and demonstrates the thrill, excitement, and marketing power of our sport.“

More Secretariat.

Stellar Wind gets by Vale Dori in Beholder Mile

A field of five shrunk to just three in the first running of the G1 Beholder Mile at Santa Anita Park, but Vale Dori and Stellar Wind delivered a thrilling duel in the near-match-race. Victor Espinoza is the winning jockey for trainer John Sadler. Stellar Wind has won both of her starts this year, with this one ending Vale Dori’s six-race winning streak.
