Saratoga Shots

By Martin Benjamin

Jockey Alan Garcia looks up to Ramon Dominguez as they enter the paddock area before a race at the Saratoga Race Course. Dominquez edged out Garcia last year for the most wins by a jockey and in 2010 they are again leading contenders for the riding title.




Jockey John Velazquez with trainer Tood Pletcher after Roderick won for them on July 23. Valazquez/Pletcher are each vieing to regain their places as top jockey and top trainer at this 2010 Saratoga meet.






The Clockers’ hut at the Okalahoma Training Track. These are the basic tools of their trade—stopwatch, notepad, binoculars, and pens. Clocked workouts can take place between 5:30 and 10 AM in mornings.





Linda Rice, the 2009 leading trainer at Saratoga Race Course with 21 wins, enters the paddock to saddle and prepare a horse for a race.
