Each time I post a new article on my Horse Racing Nation blog, I post a notice on this blogThese notices include an excerpt from the beginning of that article and a link to the piece. My latest Horse Racing Nation article is. . .

Revolutionary is a big threat in the Donn

Perhaps the most magical racetrack in North America, Saratoga is a portal to the past and a gateway to the future. Resting on the edge of Saratoga Springs, New York, Saratoga is not only a staple for the town; it is a staple for the sport of horse racing. The ghosts of racing greats – the likes of Kelso, Man O’ War, Native Dancer, Ruffian, and Secretariat – linger at the Graveyard of Champions, adding to the rich history of the iconic racetrack. In addition, “The Spa” has served as the launching pad for a multitude of champions, which attracts much attention the track’s numerous maiden races for two-year-olds each summer.

Any impressive performance from a talented two-year-old at Saratoga often lands a horse on watch lists, with hopes focused upon the Kentucky Derby (gr. I), several months and more than 800 miles away. But usually, only the outstanding maiden winners – such as those that draw away to win by a wide margin – land themselves a position on watch lists, leaving the horses that ran well but did not find the winner’s circle to frequently be abandoned.

Such is not the case for WinStar Farm’s Revolutionary. . ."
