Ready for Saratoga!

It’s on like Donkey Kong! Got my season pass photo on with a fresh haircut (I think it’s too short… before it was too long… I think I’m firing my stylist, no one seems to know how to do a good job with short girl cuts). And a special thanks to the fabulous human being morningline who sent me one of her photos which is now on display at my nest:

So yes, if you’re going to be at Saratoga tomorrow (Friday opening day), Saturday, or Sunday feel free to hunt me down and say hi. I wear glasses, a camera backpack, and usually a cap.

I’ll be shooting the ponies all weekend and will have an editorial of all the cool racing up next week. It should be a good excursion, as this is my first ever opening day and my first time at ‘Toga with a companion, as fourfurlongs will accompanying me just about the whole time I’m there and I’m hoping to reunite with a-lamb-to-the-darkness for the first time since Union Rags won the Belmont. Woooooo! 

The $35k colt beats the $800k one!: Barclay Tagg trainee Confrontation, a son of War Pass, got up late over Eastwood in a 6-furlong race.

Coming in second is still pretty sweet when you have a promising colt: Eastwood and John Velazquez.
