I have been on the road this past week. I had a whirlwind tour through the mid-west with stops in Kenosha and Madison, Wisconsin and a few days in Chicago. Someone told me there was a hurricane AND an earthquake here while I was away — sorry I missed that. Since I have been traveling I didn’t have time to put together a Colin’s Ghost piece but I do have two posts of interest at Hello Race Fans that I would like to share.
This Saturday is a big day at Saratoga for fillies and mares with the rescheduled running of the Personal Ensign and Havre de Grace taking on the boys in the Woodward. To get set for Saturday’s races, head over to Hello Race Fans to read the profile I wrote about Personal Ensign and a “Ten Things” about the race named in her honor. While you are over there, click around and check it out. It’s an excellent site for racing information and a great place for beginners and advanced horseplayers to learn about racing and handicapping.
I’ll be back next week with a new history article. If you are in need of a racing history fix before then, take a look at this week’s post at Brooklyn Backstretch titled “Mr Woodward at the Spa.”
Go Havre de Grace and good luck to all this weekend!
