Saratoga Special August 19 Edition

- -

Alabama Day. Wet Paint, heroine of the Coaching Club American Oaks a month ago, looks for her second Grade 1 win of the meet for Godolphin and trainer Brad Cox. She faces off with Sacred Wish, Gambling Girl and others in the historic mile-and-a-quarter stakes. The Saturday card includes the Lake Placid for 3-year-old fillies on the turf.

We take a Fasig-Tipton Stable Tour with Phil Serpe, catch up on all the racing action from early in the week and even work in a little harness racing via flat jockey Flavien Prat (who rides in a match race at Saratoga Harness Saturday night) and The Special’s Nolan Clancy.

While we’re here, we keep adding benefits to the Saratoga Special Readers Club. You might want to sign up.
