Hats Off Saratoga
Opening weekend at Saratoga featured the Hats Off Saratoga contest
with all kinds of hats from stylish to funky.  Check out pictures
of some of the best ones including the big winner, a replica of the
Saratoga grandstand made from crackers and pretzels!


War Emblem is going to the Haskell, finally
A P Valentine writes, "The defection of Came Home had a great deal 
to do with their coming back into the race. Didn't want to get into 
a speed duel off a fairly long break. Also cracks me up that Baffert 
is getting $50,000 just for going. Doesn't he have enough money?"

"You" was impressive today!
EARLY11 writes, "You sure spotted a filly with a lot of heart. She 
broke poorly, was shuffled back, had to split horses and then went 
through a tight opening on the rail. That was an amazing finish! I 
wonder how much that took out of her. I also wonder what her near 
future holds in store, because the older fillies and mares like 
Azeri and Summer Colony will be too tough around two turns. Still, 
she is some nice filly and that was a great race!"
