The Saratoga Special for August 8

- -

While many things have changed, this hasn’t. Fasig-Tipton hosts the 101st Saratoga yearling sale Monday and Tuesday and we preview the whole thing. Note, people are optimistic. Plus we look back at the 1962 sale (60 years ago), pay a visit to Denali’s consignment (back when the yearlings were still in Kentucky). ,

Sunday was for racing to as another week closed with three stakes. Godolphin and Charlie Appleby won another turf stakes, this time with 3-year-old filly With The Moonlight. Hall of Famer Wayne Lukas reset the clock and won the Adirondack with Naughty Gal and Mark Casse landed the De La Rose with Our Flash Drive.

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.
