Dylan Davis: Riding in the Right Direction
Dylan Davis is on a journey, and the young rider is relishing every step as he picks up the reins and prepares for a career as a jockey.
“Dylan is focused and we’re 100 percent behind him,” said his father, Robbie Davis. “He is like a ship ready to set sail.”
His mother, Marguerite, agreed. “Soon he will be a speck on the horizon; we have to be ready for that.”
The week was a whirlwind, but some of the best events, for wonderful causes, are yet to come. RSVP today!
SARATOGA SPRINGS – The proposal for an $18 million movie theater facility in downtown Saratoga Springs gained significant momentum July 30 after the Saratoga County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) voted to award the developer $956,653 in tax breaks over the next 10 years.
Saturday’s Grade I $750,000 Whitney Invitational, run at nine furlongs at the Spa, showcases 2012 Horse of the Year candidate Ron the Greek.
SARATOGA SPRINGS – Conflict between the Saratoga Springs Housing Authority (SSHA) Board of Commissioners and city council has reached new heights with the board continuing to ignore council requests for information.
SARATOGA SPRINGS – Ian Morrison was looking for help. An active member of the armed forces, an Army Captain who flew over 70 missions as an AH-64 Apache helicopter pilot in Iraq and a graduate of West Point Academy, it was clear to both Ian and his wife, Rebecca, that something was wrong when he returned home.
Thunder and Glory
On the eve of opening day, Saratoga Automobile Museum celebrated racing of another kind. Famed NASCAR driver Bobby Allison welcomed 250 supporters to the museum’s Thunder & Glory Gala on Thursday, July 19.
As the first full week approaches its close, the Travers Stakes narrative begins to gather steam for eligible three year olds.
The likely betting favorite in a state-bred maiden race on Monday’s Saratoga Race Course card will be the sentimental favorite for half the county. I asked Mr. Cowboy’s syndicate manager how she felt about this and Joann Pepper replied, “It’s like a 45-year-old dream come true to have a horse running in Saratoga.” Pepper's dream is doing more for racing’s image than you can possibly imagine, and through Mr. Cowboy, many people are having the ride of their lives.
SARATOGA SPRINGS – There are few acts in the world as polarizing as the Canadian rock band Nickelback. Though they released their first album themselves back in 1996, their music didn’t catch on until their 2001 release “Silver Side Up,” which contained the band’s first Billboard Hot 100 number-one hit “How You Remind Me.”
