Weather Alert

Bitter Cold and Wind to Bring Dangerous Below Zero Wind Chills Into Sat. Morning

Strong low presure in the Gulf of Maine through Saturday will continue to cause wind gusts locally from 30-35 mph through Saturday afternoon.  The wind in combination with the bitterly cold air in place will drop wind chills to -15 to -25 degrees at times through Saturday morning easing slightly to between -10 and -15 Saturday afternoon as temperatures climb from morning lows near zero into the low to mid teens. Dress appropriately for the cold wearing layers, a hat and mittens and covering exposed skin surfaces to reduce the chance for frost bite which can develop in as little at 15-20 minutes on exposed skin surfaces.

Saratoga Weekend Recap: Jockeys - 07/22/13

After the first weekend of racing at Saratoga, Johnny Velazquez is the leading rider with 5 wins in 25 starts. It has been a pretty fast start for Velazquez who also has 3 place and 3 show finishes. He is finishing Top 3 at a 44% clip thus far. Johnny scored his first Stakes win of the meet aboard NY-Bred Hessonite in the $100K On The Bus Stakes on Friday. Velazquez followed that up with two more Stakes wins on Saturday including the G-3 Shuvee aboard Authenticity. His total earnings for the weekend was more than $434,000. 

Rosie Napravnik and Javier Castellano have three wins apiece from 23 mounts. With many expecting a big Saratoga meet from Joel Rosario after the year he has had so far, it has been a decent start for him. He has finished in the Top 3 with 12 of 27 mounts, but just two winners, good for $324,722 in earnings. 

One of the more impressive moves of the weekend was made by Shaun Bridgmohan in yesterday's G-2 Sanford. He squeezed Wired Bryan between horses through the lane to score the upset win.
