Saratoga Spies

A quick note about yesterday’s Sanford from Our Woman in Saratoga:

The Sanford: The Sanford, for two year old colts, is one of my favorite races of the meet. It’s named for the Sanford family, who had a horse farm near here in the late 19th century and who were also prominent in shaping Saratoga’s future as a premier racing meet. Today was the 93rd running of the race. Last year, it was won by a very green Scat Daddy, who flew rather erratically down the stretch to nail Teuflesberg at the wire; and two years ago, Afleet Alex, in a similarly immature manner, zigzagged his way home to win it. You get to see remarkably talented youngsters trying to figure out what they’re supposed to do out there, and today was no different. The favorite, Ready’s Image, won it, but the Barclay Tagg-trained Tale of Ekati and Pletcher’s second horse in the race, The Roundhouse, made it interesting for second. Keep your eye out for these two.

Perhaps I’m onto something with Tale of Ekati — but it’s early days yet. Here’s a quick update on Dr. Richardson’s appearance on tomorrow’s telecast: he’ll also feature in a Penn Vet public service announcement in addition to his segment on racehorse injuries. You can see a preview of the announcement here.

And so far, Street Sense is a go for the Jim Dandy — fingers crossed!

Finally, let’s not neglect events across the pond — Dylan Thomas will be enjoying his 11th consecutive jockey change‘ in tomorrow’s King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes — although his appearance (or at least performance) too may be dependent on the weather.
