The video feed for the race (off their site Foxfield (http://www.foxfieldraces.com/fallraces.html)) as been messed up with only the color lines shown during the actual races.

Good to hear someone caught the race :)

I hoped that Steppenwolfer would do good and could move on to the step stages. Sean had said he's training exceptionally well.

Video feed is AWFUL, even when it isn't just stripes. I watched the race in little clusters...

Can you see the video streaming when it is not stripes?

The live-video feed from the NSA (for Foxfield) is working:

Old Man Buck made a great rally to come into 2nd after the last fence and still a full head of steam ... until he and jockey parted ways. I think they could've won had they kept it together.

All I saw was horses going into the last and loose horses finishing. Maybe my DSL is too slow...

Old Man Buck and Jacob both came back ok. Jacob said he just got unseated, but the horse was game.

Jacob had a hell of a day at Shawan, winning 3 of 6 races on the card.

Steppenwolfer is steeplechasing now?

Not quite yet. But he is carrying 150lbs and heading in that direction.

A blog out there has a few pictures from Foxfield including Steppenwolfer:

See see picture down with the smallish grey horse and jockey with Le Mans blue silks


Steppenwolfer, third to Barbaro in the 2006 Kentucky Derby, scored for new connections Polaris Stable and Sanna Hendriks and hinted at his readiness for an impending hurdle start, which could come at Far Hills Oct. 17.

To watch the race replay go to the NSA website (link below) and then look for FALL 2009 races; Foxfield is the only choice.

Steppenwolfer is in race 2, which picks up at about the 6min 35sec mark; Old Man Buck is in race 4

(Btw the jockey spill in the 1st race is right in front of the video crew in the replay - ugly)
