Hello Mudder, Hello Fodder

My horse is somewhere to the left of these horses.It's a celebration of gambling goodness! NYRA has announced that the New York Lottery will be sponsoring this year's Travers Stakes. Apparently NYRA's so hard up for cash that they're whoring out the name of the area's greatest sporting event. Is it just me, or is there something weird about NYRA selling the name of the Travers to a State agency? Speaking of the lottery and the track, don't miss Lottery Day, coming to the flats on July 27. According to the NYRA press release, your losing "non winning" lottery ticket gets you in for free, where you'll enjoy an entire afternoon of picking "non winning" horses. Also, be sure to join all those "non winners" spinning the turnstiles on Sunday, July 30 at Saratoga Baseball Cap Day.
