The Saratoga Special for August 7

- -

Jake would be proud. Break out your Life Is Good T-shirts, floppy hats, dog bowls, coffee mugs and whatever else you want because the horse is every bit as good as the brand. WinStar Farm and CHC runner blasts to the early lead in the Whitney and keeps going to add another Grade 1 to his resume. He was Saturday’s star, but there was plenty of other noise from War Like Goddess, Nations Pride and the rest on a busy day at the Spa.

This is our third of six days in a row of coverage – and we’ve got the sleep deprivation to prove it, but loads of good stuff as we preview Sunday and even visit some yearlings.

Special thanks to our online edition sponsor Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners.

While we’re here, think about joining The Special’s Readers Club for 2022. You’ll get some cool swag and early email notice of every edition. Totally optional, but we’d love to have you.
