BloodHorse has a great video replay site to watch all the stakes action:
You can watch all stakes races for a particular DAY, or by TRACK, or a combination.  You can also watch INTERNATIONAL and DOMESTIC racing action!  Because these are links and not embedded videos, the site loads quickly. 
RECAP OF WEEKEND RACING ACTION:  DRF: Weekend stakes preview - videos

Note:  There are free sites to watch online: check out or NTRA Live Stream or or sign up for a free trial account at  You can also catch the replays right after the big races at   Calracing has live coverage of races - Will need to register

A really good site for the new fan:
NOTE: In order to enjoy and use the functionality of the various sites below, some sites may require you to register, however, there is no charge for most of what you will want access to.  If you want to go to the next level and actually place bets and learn more about handicapping, some of these types of services have a fee, but this is strictly your choice whether to use these services.

DRF Grid: Today's Action - Upcoming & Prior Race Days - Click on any track "day", and pull up that day's entries for each of the races
One of the most useful sites I have found to keep up with Stakes results, to watch only the important races - Also, searchable by date range for past races

DRF - Starts with ACTIVE tracks - Click on the DAY next to the track name to see that day's full race card. 

Simple Alpha List of American Graded Stakes by Stakes Name, by Grade I, II, III

This includes a list of all American tracks

Twin Spires Race viewer - One of the best individual race video sites - You will need to register, free

Links to blogs and other sites I have found useful:


Looking for a way to keep up with the horses, or a trainer?  Or, ever want to watch replays of races quickly and easily?  What's coming up today or this weekend?

You need to register - it's free....there are some pay type options, but all I have needed has been the "free stuff".

Click on "Handicapping & PPs", roll over to "Tools" and note there is a "Horse Watch" and a "Trainer Watch" on the drop down list.  I have entered several Horses to watch on the "Horse Watch" (you can even have it send you an email with updates, or you can check in and click on "Messages" and check out what is happening with your choice.  You can also write a short note (I usually drop in the horse's next race, when I know what it is). A few of my choices are Uncle Mo, To Honor and Serve (one of Bernrdini's colts), Dialed In, and Zazu.
