Wide trip costs Holiday Star win


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Trainer Graham Motion was still anguishing a bit over the heartbreaking defeat Holiday Star suffered in Wednesday’s John’s Call Stakes as he made the drive back to Saratoga from his home base at the Fair Hill Training Center late Friday morning. Holiday Star was beaten a couple of inches by the rail-skimming Tricky Hat after being hung wide from the outside post 6 in the 1 5/8-mile John’s Call.
