    Better late than never! I got home late & couldn't locate the correct camera cord for downloading.

    NICE day at the races-not as hot, and some good cloud cover. (with occasional sprinkles.)
    First up, the Bowling Green (Grade ll) , which was run on the inner turf course, so no decent pics of the actual race!

    Winner Flintshire


    Place-Grand Tito


    Show-Twilight Eclipse

    Next up, the Alfred G. Vanderbilt (Grade l)

    Winner-A.P. Indian

    Place-Holy Boss

    Show-Catalina Red

    Upset Winner-Laoban
    Before (Both he & and his groom looked focused & confident!)

    Place-Governor Malibu

    Winner Laoban-after

    The photo series/shots for each race vary, depending on where the gate was located for that race, and where the warm-ups took place as a result.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the pics. I hope to make it to Saratoga at least once a week this summer. Nothing like last year (my "once in a lifetime summer") with my special access and American Pharaoh to boot! But depending on the weather, will try to post weekly.
    Thanks and enjoy!
  • These are such wonderful pictures, SallyT! Thank you so much for sharing them!

  • I LOVE this filly! Thanks for posting the race Keta! Wanted to go see her yesterday, but it was pouring, so I knew I wouldn't get any pics. Watched her on TVG instead. Her photo from last year is on page 10 of this discussion-when she's getting her "facial". LOL
  • Wow, the Curlins sure dominated some of the bigger races this weekend. Stellar Wind, Exaggerator, and now this one.
  • Thank you again for the fantastic photos from Saratoga, Sally. Love the way you have caught the action and drama of the races, and, also, the character and personality of the horses in quieter moments. :-)

    Thanks for posting Paniolo_Gal !
    I received info about the first event in an e-mail from Old Friends at Cabin Creek (Bobby Frankel division) so you would have thought they'd have mentioned the second event!
    Michael Blowen is also scheduled to be a "Guest in the Gallery" at the National Racing Museum on August 16th.

    So much going on! I'm heading to the Hall of Fame induction Ceremony on the 12th, and this coming Sunday I can't make the Old Friends event because I'm planning on going to a different special horse event. If successful, I'l have some much different pics to post-fingers crossed!

    She won the Schuylerville Stakes - Gr. 3 impressively last year by a couple of lengths

    Watch for Night Officer. He is at Saratoga and just turned in a great work on 7/25. He is a cousin to my mare and is a graded stakes winner. Sprint turf horse, 1/2 Sib to Maggie Moss's great Delaunay, now retired. :)
  • Will do-keep me posted if you hear anything.
