Trainer Chad Brown, who won his first Grade 1 race two years ago when he captured the 2011 Diana with Zagora, could have as many as three starters when he attempts to add another victory in the 1 1/8-mile turf race for fillies and mares. Read More
She's running in the Diana, my under the radar pick in this race chock full of talent. She'll undoubtedly be underbet.

Saratoga 2013 is still a week away, yet I find myself missing the meet something awful. My work schedule being what it is these days, I can’t justify getting away to the splendor of the Spa for even a few days, between the dates of Friday, July 19 and Monday, September 2. I’ll pause for the collecti...Read More

  • BrianZipse · “The X-ray showed that she had some bruising in the condyles, which in itself is not a major issue, but you can’t run,” he said. “Right now it’s not serious; it’s not even an injury.” ~Jimmy Toner · 614 days ago ·
  • likin sparks · Well not sure if it's just bruising or degeneration of the condylar, if it's a degenerative bone disease then possibly down the road she'll end up lame, non curable and partially heriditary. Bruising cures with rest so hopefully it's not a serious condition. · 614 days ago ·

  • zbuilder · Alex, In the early 90's, I had the good fortune to be the racing writer for the local newspaper. I had to make public picks for all of the races. It was the most fun job I have ever had. The pay sucked but my horseplaying education expanded exponentially. I was also able to write articles of my choosing, not suggestions from an editor. I like your attitude. You will do fine. Break a leg. Ooops, different profession. RonZ · 623 days ago ·

  • travel_vic · If the track plays normally the French gal is long gone, and if the grass is still playing as it has all week, no one catcheds the rail horse. It is a matter of how the course is running. · 627 days ago ·
  • Floridaf · I'm not sure Tapitsfly likes 9 f, even if she is the only speed. She seems to be best around a mile. Zagora and Winter Memories are the best bets for the 1-2 spots. · 627 days ago ·

Chad Brown, the 32-year-old trainer who grew up 10 miles from Saratoga Race Course in Mechanicville, has had a dream start to the Saratoga meeting. After 16 days of the 40-day meet, he’d saddled nine winners. That would be a solid total for the entire meet, so it’s no wonder he’s well ahead of all b...Read More
  • BrianZipse · It's a little surprising to have one of my favorite turf trainers this young, but Chad Brown certainly fits the bill. I always give his horses an extra look in a grass race. I'm expecting big things for him on a national level. · 981 days ago ·
