Closer’s Wednesday Saratoga Selections (Rick Violette Day)
Trainer Rick Violette will be honored by NYRA with a race named after the 35 year trainer. Violette died on October 21st after a lengthy battle with cancer.
Wednesday, the New York Racing Association will honor Violette's memory with the $100,000 Rick Violette. It is the second race on the card — for 2-year-old New York-breds. Many remember his thrilling victory last summer in the Whitney with Diversify and how much he helped the sport of horse racing. He is truly missed.
