Last week a Twitter follower asked me, in service of settling a bet, if I knew when the saddling area at Saratoga moved from under the backyard trees to its current location.
I’ve asked: Andy Serling. Nick Zito. Allen Jerkens. Marshall Cassidy. My brother. Steve Crist. And so far, folks, we’ve got about a ten-year range.
Anybody out there remember? Any fans who remember where their favorite horses were saddled? Trainers who remember where they saddled certain horses?
Even if you don’t remember the exact year, weigh in with a year that you remember horses saddled under the trees, or in the new paddock area. Together, we can solve this!
