40 Days of Durkin: Friday August 1, 2014

In honor of Tom Durkin’s retirement from race calling on August 31, we are taking a look back at 40 of his most memorable calls–one for each day of the 2014 Saratoga meet.

With the Lure Stakes coming up on Saturday at the Spa, today we look at Durkin’s call of Lure’s second consecutive Breeder’s Cup Mile Victory in 1993. Lure overcame serious post and traffic trouble for a speed horse to win convincingly.

Don’t stop watching after the wire, the best part of Durkin’s call comes after the finish with “And Mike Smith is pumped up and why not”
