Saratoga Special: The Future is Now

Events / Travel

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.
