Milwaukee won its second straight following a five-game skid, including a four-game sweep at home by the second-place Cardinals, who have won a team-record 15 in a row. “I think […]

With NYRA Ban Overturned, Baffert Plans To Enter Gamine At Saratoga

After a judge overturned the New York Racing Association’s ban of Bob Baffert on July 14, the trainer told the Daily Racing Form he plans to enter reigning champion sprint mare Gamine in the Grade 1 Ballerina Stakes at Saratoga on Aug. 28. NYRA notified Baffert ahead of the Belmont Stakes that it was suspending his ability to enter horses in races or have stall space at its racetracks due to his recent history of medication violations, the conflicting statements he provided to media around the Medina Spirit scandal, and Churchill Downs’ suspension of the trainer.

Judge, Sánchez drive Yanks to blowout win over Royals

Yankees hitters have clawed out of an early season slump with a string of clutch, late-game hits. The Bronx Bombers needed no such fireworks in this one — a start-to-finish shellacking that’s inspiring confidence ahead of a weekend series in Boston. “It’s good to see these guys starting to get a little bit of that swagger,” manager Aaron Boone said. Aaron Judge homered for the first of his three hits, Gary Sánchez connected for the second consecutive game and New York got its first blowout triumph in a month, defeating the Kansas City Royals 8-1 Thursday.

Letruska will run right back in Fleur de Lis

Somebody must’ve forgotten to tell trainer Fausto Gutierrez that top-level horses in America usually don’t wheel back in three weeks, at least not when the weather gets this warm. Not that anyone should mind. Gutierrez, the dominant trainer in his native Mexico, has confirmed that Letruska, the leader in the North American filly-mare division, will return from her romp in the Grade 1 Ogden Phipps on the June 5 Belmont Stakes undercard to run Saturday in the Grade 2, $300,000 Fleur de Lis at Churchill Downs. The 5-year-old Super Saver mare is owned by her breeder, the St. George Stables […]
