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!

When 3 horses scratched from the 8-horse field of the 4th race, I decided against betting on In the Dark, who I unsuccessfully bet on last year when he was a super-longshot who wound up finishing last! And of course, because Denzel and Glickman decided to duel, it set up perfectly for him to win and #1 Carolinian to storm up to close. D’aww!
