The Grade 2 Saratoga Special Stakes is one of the first marquee races each year for 2-year-olds and often serves as a glimpse of the future.

Since 1980, the 6 ½-furlong race on the main track has been won by future classic winners such as Conquistador Cielo, Swale, Summer Squall and Union Rags as well as Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winners Favorite Trick and Chief’s Crown.

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!

More of Jen’s work plus her racetrack sketchbook in progress can be seen at jenferguson.com
