The Fourstardave Handicap will be run this Saturday at Saratoga Race Course for the 30th time. Top turf horses including Silver Max, winner of the 2013 Shadwell Turf Mile, Jack Milton, victorious in the Poker Stakes at Belmont, and Seek Again, runner-up to Wise Dan in the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic, are expected to line up for the one mile race on the inner turf course. A $500,000 purse is up for grabs in the Grade 2 race.

The race is named for Fourstardave, the "Sultan of Saratoga" who won at least one race at the track each year from 1987 to 1994. The gelding retired from racing in 1995 with 21 wins, 18 seconds and 16 thirds from 100 starts.

Jen Ferguson

Jen Ferguson is an artist whose interest in depicting racehorses and track life goes back to early childhood, when she was obsessed with drawing horses and jockeys out of Blood-Horse magazines she got from her uncle, who owned and raced Thoroughbreds. In fact, her first childhood drawings were of racehorses.

In 2009, she published a book of drawings and stories based on expeditions to Aqueduct titled “Railbirds: My Life at the Track.” Jen spent last August working on drawings at Saratoga Race Course and plans to return for the 2013 meet. She currently works in Brooklyn, N.Y., where she draws regularly at Aqueduct and Belmont Park. If you see her sketching at the track, say hello!
