You know how it is with Standardbreds.  Most are bay, with an occasional chestnut or grey tossed in for variety.  Some have a star here or a sock there - but 'bling,' of any sort, is mighty rare indeed.

Before this year's Saratoga meet began, I scanned in a few negatives from - gulp - a quarter-century ago at the Spa.  I thought some of you might remember these horses, people and times with the same fondness I do.
