Hello Broadway, up close and personal at Saratoga (Jason Moran)
I’m currently having the blogging equivalent of a turn out… minus the grazing and relaxation.
From recent Derby seasons gone by, Atoned is set to make his turf debut this Saturday, Georgie Boy stretches out a bit, King of the Roxy comes out of retirement, Song of Navarone sets a track record, Elysium Field wins his 4yo debut in the 7th at Santa Anita, Trust N Dustan is entered in the Attijari Al Islami Trophy at Nad Al Sheba and Curlin might be busier than ever (comments not safe for work, kind of). Program note for Nad Al Sheba, there’s also a race named Al Dana Wealth Management, I’m not the sponsor.
From Derby seasons yet to come, it’s never to early to start making those lists!
One of my favorite content features from the 2007 Derby that was mysteriously missing in 2008 is back! Podcasts. Generally I’m not a podcast person, but I love race replays as podcasts, and if you do too you’re in luck! Of course they have all their of video content there if you’re interested, or you can just pick and choose as you like.
And finally for Sutherland and Stra watch. Today at Santa Anita Kyla Stra didn’t have any mounts while Chantal Sutherland had 2 mounts. Sutherland got 4th on Dailies in the first race and won on on White Lace Jimmy in the 8th. Congrats to her and better luck to Stra on picking up mounts!
