Saratoga Briefly

Three winners for trainer George Weaver at Saratoga on Thursday; I knew he had it in him! He's now on a Kimmel-ish streak of four in a row, and seven for 30 over all (and he has a first-time starter running for a 20K tag in today's second). One of the winners was first-timer Golly Day, dull on the board at 8-1, but an impressive winner with a wide rally after an awkward start. He's a two-year old son of Lion Heart, out of Wake Up Kiss, a state-bred stakes winner on the grass at the Spa herself; so a suitable heritage there. And Weaver had a stakes winner of his own with 4-5 Perfect Officer (Officer) in the Solomon Northup.
