Shanghai Bobby
Bobby is back in training at Saratoga and had his first two breezes.  Both went very well.  Please click here to read the DRF article and click here to read about it in the Bloodhorse. Bobby is making steady progress but as of now there are no plans to race him at the Saratoga meet.  To keep posted on his latest updates, please follow him on Twitter, like him on Facebook or visit!  It's great to see him back on the track and doing what he loves!

Behind the Scenes with the Starlight Racing:
Many people affiliated with Starlight Racing have been coming to quaint Saratoga for years and it remains as special now as it was when they placed their first bets under the distinctive red and white awnings.  They graciously shared the "Saratoga Experience' with staff members, Elizabeth Ovelman and Jennifer Calder, both of whom attended the meet for the first time this summer!  For a behind-the-scenes look at what makes Saratoga so special (along with a few pictures) please click here!
