Preview of the Haskell
"If anyone puts on a show, it will be Timeline."

Unfortunately he got off slowly then rushed up to catch the leaders then faded late. Finished 5th I think. :-(

The winning BSF for the race was 95. Not a particularly stellar performance for anyone in the race. Timeline has run faster than that before.

Singing Bullet finished 3rd in the G2 Amsterdam Stakes today at Saratoga. So he is now G2 placed. Another black type performer for Hard Spun. Hopefully Singing Bullet has a stakes win in his future.

Hardened had a nice maiden win in race #3 at Saratoga today. His record is now 2-1-0-0. He had the highest odds in the race at 10-1. Led the whole way and hung on by a nose.

Yikes, another longwinded baby. GRATEFUL won race #3 at Saratoga today. 1-1/2 miles on the inner turf. 2:27 and change. She was up against older and the only 3yo in the field of 5. Nice win! Her record is now 7-3-3-1. She has never raced on the dirt. I wonder why. Broodmare sire is Unbridled's Song.

She totally missed the break. Hopped way up in the air. When they show the head on replay of the break you can see how high she hopped. Must have thought she could fly! Lol! She ended up trailing the field by a good bit at first. Kind of impressive that she still won after playing catch up like that.

Race video will be here by tomorrow: http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/ ... -on-8-7-17

A comment at horseracingnation.com said that TIMELINE is pointed to the G1 PA Derby on Sept 23 instead of Travers.
The comment said that Chad Brown said this a couple days ago, though I haven't seen any official quotes from Chad.

SNAP DECISION is nominated to the Aug 26th G1 7 furlong H Allen Jerkins Memorial Stakes at Saratoga (formerly Kings Bishop Stakes).

This is such a nice series they are doing on horse and rider. And Herringswell Stables is sharing them on Facebook, where I see them. Some old favorites there.

She was the only 3yo in the field, so I think she acquitted herself well. She did get a weight break, though, but I still think she showed promise. She didn't give up.
