Saratoga Special August 26 Edition

- -

Travers Day. We made it. Sixty-four (64) pages of previews, recaps, columns and so on. Saratoga Race Course hosts five Grade 1 stakes. We look at them all. Travers: Forte and the classic winners clash in the meet’s signature race. Forego: Katie Davis gets a chance to ride her first Grade 1. Jerkens: Canterbury shipper One In Vermillion earns a Grade 1 try. Ballerina: Echo Zulu and Goodnight Olive clash in sprint. Sword Dancer: Bob Ribaudo and Daunt take a swing against Channel Maker and the gang.

We take a Fasig-Tipton Stable Tour with George Weaver, cover Friday’s Grade 1 Personal Ensign (a mild upset of Nest by Idiomatic) and loads more. Settle in, open up and read. See you at the track, hopefully.

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