In the aftermath of a violent collision on Saratoga's Oklahoma training track, some wondered whether or not Nick Zito's five year old Jackson Bend would survive, let alone race again. But remarkably, when the gates swing open for Saturday's Grade One Forego, just two weeks after that training accident, the five year old fighter will be in the mix.
After an eventful, exciting summer at the Saratoga Race Course, the 144th meet of this historic venue winds to a close this weekend. In one final attempt to hold off the coming reality, we preview each of the weekend's feature races.
Throughout the 144th running of the Saratoga Race Course meet, we've done our best to provide you with the weekend's most likely win bets. In this, the final weekend of said meet, we've scoured the past performances to find you a few more and finish strong.
On this week's edition of the 2 Guys 1 Mic Podcast, Pierce Brix and I also discuss the ever deepening tail spin of the New York Yankees, the Giants' finish to the pre-season, the place of replacement referees, Matt Harvey's dominance, and Tim Tebow's role as a New York Jet.

Since 1961, the colors of the Travers winning owner have graced the waters of Saratoga's infield pond. Today, for the first time, and in honor of the exhilarating dead heat between Golden Ticket and Alpha two canoes were launched.
Saratoga Race Course's 144th meet hit its unequivocal peak this weekend, with five Grade Ones, a Grade Two, a host of other great races, and quite simply a have-to-see-it finish in the crown jewel of summer racing - The Travers.
Ahhh Travers weekend - when the proverbial men are separated from the equally proverbial boys. And after a downright awful weekend last time out, we look to firmly cement ourselves within the former with a good showing on Saratoga's best and most anticipated weekend.
