SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -   Trainer Roderick Rodriguez had never started a horse at Saratoga nor won a stakes of any kind anywhere coming into opening day of the 2015 meet. He accomplished both those milestones on Friday, thanks to the speedy 2-year-old filly Off the Tracks, a talented daughter of Curlin who rallied to an impressive 3 1/4- length victory over Banree and six others in the $150,000 Schuylerville Stakes.
