Omaha, Colin, Fair Play, Flocarline - May 30th

Flocarline became the first filly to win the Preakness Stakes. ~1903
 
Jockey Patricia Barton won her first career race, at Pikes Peak. ~1969
 
Omaha, the Triple Crown winner of 1935, won the Queens Plate at Kempton Park, England, for owner William Woodward. ~1936
 
Jockey Joe Notter misjudged the finish of the Belmont Stakes and eased up on his mount, Colin, whose career record to that point was 13-for-13. Notter barely recovered from his mistake to hold off the drive of Fair Play, who came within a head of defeating Colin. When he retired, Colin's record stood at 15 wins in as many starts. ~1908
 
Hollywood Park introduced the "vibrationless camera," developed by Hollywood cameraman Lorenzo del Ricio. Eight patrol judges with the cameras, which were attached to their binoculars, were stationed at intervals around the track. Jockey Nunzio Pariso was the camera's first victim-he was shown on film crowding a rival on the far turn. ~1941
