The Special goes back-to-back

- -

The lean and mean editorial team from The 2020 Special weren’t finished for June and last week’s Belmont Stakes Day edition and return with another for Saturday’s big day of racing in the U.S.

The fourth edition of The 2020 Special, launched way back in early May to fill a void with a postponed Kentucky Derby and a shuffled 3-year-old season, covers Stephen Foster Day at Churchill and a four-stakes card at Belmont Park topped by the Grade 1 Just A Game.

We recap last weekend’s Belmont Stakes victory by Sackatoga Stable’s Tiz The Law (check out our online recap “Tiz Quiet” posted the morning after the race) with pieces from Sean and Tom that put you there, with Barclay Tagg and in the empty stands at Belmont for the 152nd running of the race.

Plans for our 2020 publishing schedule in Saratoga continue to come together and Joe outlines it all right off the rip, followed by the features you’ve come to expect with Here & There and the Fasig-Tipton Stable Tour. We even tossed in another staple of our website,, with a preview and picks for the Virginia Gold Cup card at Great Meadow.

Enjoy Issue 4 of The 2020 Special. Be safe and good luck.
