Burnsy with the hot hand, 2nd in the low roller contest , got paid and cashed all day at the windows.. We both had the $200 pik3 in the finale. $200 with a 3/5 in the middle. Genius. 😂

Love the photos. Looks like nice weather. I was up there a couple weeks ago - I wished I could have done some walking around Saratoga but it pretty much rained both days I was there.

Was on location today and wished I hadnít been. The place looked depressing with extremely low attendance. Lots of workers just standing around etc. Never a fan of off the turf days and 4-5 horse fields. It is what it was. The rain killed it not to mention it was 25 degrees cooler then last week when I was there. Grabbed the late pick 3 as well but that was all luck. There was a DQ, then the chalk that did not win easily and the final race was up for grabs. It got me out for the day. Tough to leave out an Uncle Mo horse. BTW the little guy left out the 4 horse in race four today. Five horse field , four picks and left out Aloha West. Lot of qtip followers must have lost there bankroll because of that. Glad your feeling better little guy.

I love the last week due to the lower attendance . Itís for the locals thatís why they sold the giveaway stuff yesterday. The weather was great I thought, 70 degrees and sunny. I kind of agree with the turfÖÖ I donít know why they were all off and at first I was irritated too. But you gotta put that aside and figure it out . It was my third best day yesterday . There were prices to be had . Travers Day there were 44, 000 people (pain in the ass) and the prices sucked. Iíll take any day when itís nice out, I can get around the place and horses pay like that. I get a little frustrated by rain out cards but if you put it aside and studyÖÖ. Thereís often money to be made.

Thanks for the pics Suff. Did you meet Kelly Breenís barn cat while you were over that way (heís right next to Ryerson). Feisty and fun little guy. BTW Jim Ryerson is one nice guy

Was there a few weeks ago. Passed a few people that had some resemblance to you and asked ďAre you Suff?Ē No luck.

If you like houses, find your way up to North Broadway up by Skidmore if you havenít been before. Probably too far to walk from where you are but a nice walk once you get up there

Exactly Suff. You get it. Thereís a reason Iím there 34 or so days a year. Does it get frustrating at times? Yeah, everything does. Nothing is perfect. But this is about as close as it gets to being so.

Made it for 18 cards this year- a personal best (I live 200 miles away). It was a dream come true. Some shitty weather days but you make due. Whitney weekend was pure magic on all fronts, and while I got buried Travers day the racing was terrific. Suff is right, you really have to try to not be happy there. Some great off track experiences too thanks to an industry connection and a local guy who introduced me to his friend who lives on Nelson on the crown of the Clubhouse turn and hosted a post Travers party.

18 is a number you can be proud of! I'm boxing the 1 & 8 all day now... 😆

Table neighbors yesterday were from Utica, 2 hours away? They're coming back Sunday too. Great time, the common bond of loving Saratoga, you make fast friends.. Saturday I have friends coming from Rochester that I met here a few years ago.

We text holiday greetings , we keep in touch all year discussing Saratoga plans...it's heartwarming.

The new tailgate area is imho-- epic beyond epic. I mean, you are right on top of the track! It's crazy good. I'm considering renting one without a car! 😂














They have a little station out here, 3 machines, 2 tvs and a bar/bartender for 12 spots..pretty nice.

Nice photos Suff


Good to see Travis Stone on the Talking Horses today. Hope Stabile is feeling better.
