Despite rainy start, race course sees rebound

Our business improved when the weather improved, and the 140th Spa meeting once again combined the highest quality thoroughbred racing and the strongest wagering opportunities in North America, said NYRA President and CEO Charles Hayward. "Among the remarkable performances we've seen this year were Commentator wiring a strong field to capture the Whitney for the second time, Ginger Punch miraculously getting her nose on the wire to take the Personal Ensign, the stirring stretch duels of Proud Spell and Music Note in the Alabama, and Colonel John and Mambo in Seattle in the Travers, and, this past Saturday, Curlin, a true champion showing his class in the Woodward. Many thanks to our fans, owners, trainers, jockeys and employees for another great 36 days of racing at Saratoga.""
