First positive ID of the meet: Mr Speaker on the Oklahoma training track
After making his sixth career start, Waco finally broke his maiden at Saratoga, spurting from his rail post to a wire-to-wire win over 6 1/2 furlongs. Jockey Jose Ortiz kept the Medaglia d’Oro gelding to task to continue his hot streak, up for trainer H. James Bond.
The Diana Stakes (I) was the result of a horse trying her hardest and winning, an honest trainer believing in her, and an oft criticized jockey proving his worth… and of course, all of her caretakers and connections! Congrats to Somali Lemonade!
