Cigar, Dare and Go, Pat Day, Mary Russ - August 10th

Cigar was denied a 17th straight victory when longshot Dare and Go passed him in the stretch of the Pacific Classic at Del Mar. ~1996
 
Mary Russ became the first female rider to surpass the $1 million mark in earnings when she finished third aboard Bammer in the fourth race at Saratoga Racecourse. ~1982
 
Breeders' Cup announced that it would adopt the standard colored saddle towel system, and that trainers who violate its medication policy would face an automatic one-year suspension. Trainers who violate the policy three times face a lifetime ban from the Breeders' Cup. ~2009
 
Hall of Fame jockey Pat Day became the leading money-winning rider in history with $264,580,968 in purse earnings after guiding With Anticipation to victory in the Grade I Sword Dancer Invitational Handicap at Saratoga. The previous mark was $264,351,679 set by Chris McCarron. ~2002
 
"The Dinner Party Stakes," devised by a group of seven influential Thoroughbred owners after a dinner at Saratoga a few days before, was advertised with a request for nominations. The stakes race, designed to showcase racing in Baltimore, was to be run two years hence, in 1870, at the yet-to-be-built Pimlico Racecourse. ~1868
