WPT Wraps Summer Meets With Big Weekend
Labor Day is Monday, and that means that the horse vans have begun their trips to Saratoga and Del Mar to ship to the horses to their fall destinations. However, West Point Thoroughbreds will look to send the summer of 2010 out with a bang with up to eight runners slated for races at Saratoga and Del Mar.
Tropic Storm will headline the action in the Windy Sands Handicap on Saturday at Del Mar. The talented son of Stormy Atlantic has already won once at the meet and will look to capture a second score where the surf meets the turf.
Also looking for a second win at a summer meet will be Montana Knight, who will look to score his second win at Saratoga and third straight overall on Friday.
Fans of two-year-old racing will get their fill as King Ting makes his second career start and the highly touted Runflatout debuts for trainer Carla Gaines at Del Mar.
Dare we forget graded stakes winner Mr. Fantasy looking to return to the winner's circle after a series of game stakes efforts this spring.
These are just a handful of the scheduled runners. Needless to say we'll be glued to our television sets, and we invite you to do the same. To keep abreast of what's coming up, don't forget to check out our upcoming races by clicking here.
