This Friday is projected to be a special day for Saratoga Race Course, as it is about to bring the second phase of the inaugural Turf Trinity and the even more appealing Turf Tiara.
The second batch of live races for 3-year-old turf runners would heat up the action starting August 2 and the US$750,000 Saratoga Oaks race. Renowned horses such as Concrete Rose are among the spectator’s favorites and expectations are once again skyrocketing.
Turf Tiara is about to see its second leg and once again excite everyone interested in live racing in New York. Following already established working models such as the Canadian Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing, Turf Tiara and Turf Trinity want to elevate the experience across the summer months and be a driving force for the local horse racing field.
Horse Racing Returns Once Again
Saratoga Race Course and Belmont Park are about to once again welcome a crowd this week. The first live event that would make this weekend even more exciting for New York horse racing fans would be the August 2 live race at Saratoga Race Course.
The US$750,000 Saratoga Oaks Invitational is expected to challenge its participants and showcase their skills on the turf. For the first time ever, Concrete Rose will have the chance to run at 1 3/8 miles at Saratoga Race Course, striving to bag the first place prize.
Rusty Arnold trainee, this filly has accomplished a lot, as it is an Ashbrook Farm and BBN Racing’s three-time graded stakes. Now all eyes are set on her, as she has the skills to outrun all rivals on the way to the top.
Another event that really solidified her leading position was Concrete Rose’s performance on July 6. This is when Turf Trinity saw its first leg – the Grade 1 Belmont Oaks Invitational. Concrete Rose entered the 1 ¼ race and succeeded in dominating the field. Mr. Arnold is positive that she would have the skills to add another triumph to her name.
Winners Bag Hefty Prizes
Other notable names that would make their way to the live race this Friday would be Albert Frassetto’s Her Royal Highness, trained by Graham Motion. This race is projected to be a challenge for her, but at the end of the day, Mr. Motion stated that this has been in the plans for quite some time.
A new name, Olendon is about to make a second appearance this week, following a North American debut and a French racing history. Turf Tiara would see its second leg on August 4, this one being the US$1-million Saratoga Derby with its 1 3/16 turf track ready to see a stellar performance by all three-year-old horses. For the very first time, this live race is going to welcome horse people ready to bag the stellar first-place prize, as well as bettors ready for action.
In addition to the live action on site, a broadcast would also be live nationally on FS2, propelling renowned Whitney Weekend festivities. The last phase of this racing action is scheduled to take place at the beginning of September, once again offering locals more.
