On DVD or VHS:
A very controversial Triple Crown year as Kentucky Derby winner, SPEND A BUCK, ruffles some traditional, "old racing school", feathers by opting OUT of the Preakness in favor of racing in the Jersey Derby instead in hopes of winning and snagging a $2 Million bonus; taken as a insult and "snub" to the prestigious Triple Crown by many high profile racing figures. In his absence, TANK'S PROSPECT with Pat Day aboard rides to glory in the Preakness amidst a life threatening breakdown of HAJJI'S TREASURE in the race and CREME FRAICHE takes the marathon Belmont as tragedy strikes again when TANK'S PROSPECT is pulled up.
Also included is a tribute to RUFFIAN, a lengthy segment on owner Eugene Klein (TANK'S PROSPECT) and a very interesting story on Claiborne Farm - breeder of three entries in this years Belmont (STEPHAN'S ODYSSEY, TANK'S PROSPECT and CHIEF'S CROWN) and also home to several past Belmont winners who are shown standing at stud: DAMASCUS 1967, SECRETARIAT 1973, AVATAR 1975, COASTAL 1979 and CONQUISTADOR CIELO 1982.
Truly an eventful Triple Crown series; the complete televised broadcast of all three Triple Crown races featuring such other standouts as ETERNAL PRINCE, RHOMAN RULE, CHIEF'S CROWN, STEPHAN'S ODYSSEY, PROUD TRUTH, SKYWALKER and CUTLASS.
AS AN ADDED BONUS...the Jersey Derby is shown in its entirety (SPEND A BUCK, CREME FRAICHE, EL BASCO and SKIP TRIAL) as is the Colin Stakes (SALEM DRIVE, DIAMOND RICH, SUMMITRY and ATTRIBUTE).
