$1-Million Colonial Turf Cup Oversubscribed

A full field of 14 horses is scheduled to start in the $1 million Colonial Turf Cup, the first leg of the $5 million Jacob Investments "Grand Slam of Grass." With a total of 17 entries, three horses are listed as also-eligible for the turf race for 3-year olds, should there be any defections.

All Roads Lead to the Travers

The second season for 3-year-olds promises to be an exciting one, with a talented group of colts made up of seasoned Triple Crown veterans and budding superstars converging on the $1-million Travers Stakes (gr. I) Aug. 26 at Saratoga.

Stamina Influences Abound in this Year's Classic Winners

If this year's Triple Crown races are any indication, the belief that stamina is being sacrificed for speed in American breeding is not true in the least. A close look at the pedigrees of Barbaro, the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) winner, Bernardini, the Preakness (gr. I) victor, and Jazil, who captured the Belmont (gr. I) shows how stamina influences are alive and well in American pedigrees.
