weekend turf warrior 9/5/15

It's the Labor Day long weekend, and Closing Weekend at the Spa. there are 3 graded stakes on the turf Saturday, including the Saranac for 3 yo & the Glens Falls for F&M at the Spa, and the Boiling Springs at MTH.

This race was run on the main track prior to 1979, and has been contested at distances ranging from one mile to 1 3/16 miles. It has been run at 1 1/8 miles since 2011. The Glens Falls is named after a town located about 15 minutes north of Saratoga Springs. Also known as “Hometown U.S.A.,” a title given to it by Look magazine in 1944, Glens Falls was given its name in 1788 by Colonel Johannes Glen, referring to a large waterfall in the Hudson River at the southern end of the city. In the HBO series “The Sopranos,” Tony Soprano’s brother-in-law Bobby Baccalieri owns a home in Glens Falls, which Tony and Carmela visited in the sixth season episode “Soprano Home Movies.” It's unclear how the Boiling Springs got its name -- there's a Boiling Springs in PA. The race used to be at MED
