11:20 am: Happy 150th anniversary, Saratoga. Hope my usual cash gift is appropriate. So, where were we? Sorry about the unscheduled absence after a couple of things came up downstate, but I'm back up here with the family for a nice long stretch now.

12:45 pm: Fast, firm, sunny and 76 degrees at the Spa, where Day 11 begins the second quarter of the 2013 meeting. It's five degrees hotter down here on Long Island, which it took nearly five hours to reach yesterday thanks to horrific traffic over the Whitestone Bridge.

12:30 pm: Beautiful sunny day, fast and firm for Day 10, which features the G2 Honorable Miss Stakes and a two-day $330,088 pick-6 carryover. It struck me as a relatively manageable sequence, with no 2-year-old races full of firsters or completely inscrutable races. I'll be playing. Here are my horse-by-horse notes, and I'll be back to post my play around 2:30 pm.
