Nashua, Smarty Jones, Genuine Risk, John Longden - May 15th

John Longden gained his 4,000th victory, riding at Hollywood Park.~1952
 
Nashua won his first race, running 4 1/2 furlongs over a straightaway at Belmont Park.~1954
 
Smarty Jones won the Preakness Stakes by 11 1/2 lengths, the largest winning margin in the 129-year history of the event.~2004
 
Two horses-War Cloud and Jack Hare Jr.-were declared the winner of the Preakness Stakes, not because of a dead heat, but because the race was run in two divisions.~1918
 
Genuine Risk, the second of three fillies to have won the Kentucky Derby since it began in 1875, gave birth to her first foal after 13 years of failed attempts and miscarriages. The foal, a son of Rahy, was named Genuine Reward.~1993
 
Lee Chang Ferrell, a patron in the Pimlico infield, jumped onto the track in midstretch and interfered with the running of the Maryland Breeders' Cup Handicap. The race winner, Yes It's True, avoided the trouble, but wagers on fifth-place finisher Artax were refunded due to the incident. Later that day, Charismatic, winner of the Kentucky Derby, took the Preakness Stakes before a record crowd of 100,311.~1999
