Saratoga Special June 7 Edition

- -

Day 1 in the books. The Belmont Stakes Racing Festival at Saratoga opened Thursday with success – a lively crowd and huge handle thanks to top racing. The Grey Wizard stole the show with his rallying victory under John Velazquez in the Grade 2 Belmont Gold Cup. That win also punched his ticket to the prestigious Melbourne Cup in November if his connections choose to head Down Under.

We’re back with the second issue of The Special, complete with previews of Friday’s stakes stakes led by a Kentucky Oaks rematch in the Grade 1 Acorn and a filly and mare turf battle in the Grade 1 New York. Another conversation with Hall of Famer D. Wayne Lukas, Sean Clancy’s Cup of Coffee column, entries and handicapping. It’s all there.
