12:45 pm: "Another impossibly beautiful day at Saratoga," was how Tom Durkin welcomed the fans for Day 25. No argument here: 72 degrees going up to 80, fast and firm. If everyone up here sounds a little giddy about the weather, it has been a remarkably lucky run. Grass races have been rained out only twice in 24 cards, and the heaviest rains have been on dark days.

12:50 pm: Just another fast/firm/75 day in paradise (parimutueldise?) for Day 22 of 40, with two ungraded sprint stakes brightening an otherwise claimer-heavy Monday card: five 3-year-old fillies going 5.5f on the turf In the $100k Coronation Cup Stakes (race 3), and seven older males going 6f on the dirt in the $100k Kid Russell.
