You Won't Believe This Stretch Run! Hawthorne Race Course
Watch this thoroughbred horse come from out of nowhere to win. What other races have you seen like this?
This happened at Hawthorne Race Course on October 23, 2008. As track announcer Peter Galassi noted, Donnaguska was "far, far, far, far back" early under jockey Israel Ocampo. The three-year-old daughter of Yonaguska was sent off at 17-1, the second longest shot in the field of nine. She is number three.
