Mike Smith.With one winner on the card, Mike Smith came out on top yesterday after a furious 30-day fight for the Saratoga riding crown with Julie Krone and Angel Cordero.Smith defeated Krone, who had two winners yesterday, 33-32. Cordero finished with 30 winners; he didn't have a victory on either of the final two cards.Cordero has won 13 of the last 16 titles but has not won a meet here in two years.The Saratoga title was the latest accomplishment in New York for Smith, who came to Aqueduct in November 1989 expecting to stay only a few months before success disrupted plans to go to Oaklawn Park.

The Daily Record plans to sell its Saratoga Street home of almost 100 years and is looking downtown for “nicer,” “modern” offices for its 35 employees, publisher Suzanne Fischer-Huettner said Wednesday. The decision to sell the five-story building was made this summer after representatives from The Dolan Co., the Daily Record's parent company, visited the offices of the legal newspaper, Fischer-Huettner said. Minnesota-based Dolan Co. emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy in June.

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y., - Before they even lined up for the 87th running of the Sanford Stakes, Linda Rice was spotting D. Wayne Lukas $1,941,000 and 13 years in experience. The colt she trains, City Zip, was purchased for $9,000 last year as a yearling. His colt, Yonaguska, was picked up for $1.9 million seven months ago as a 2-year-old. Rice had a handful of important stakes races on her resume; he had 13 Triple Crown victories and 20 national champions on his. But it took only 1:10 3/5 of horse racing - the time City Zip clocked to win his second stakes race - for Rice to show that inexpensive does not mean slow.

Other trainers and owners, Bill Beatson said, took a look at the Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap, saw the name "Shackleford" and passed. Even Beatson, and his partners at Dark Hollow Farms, David and JoAnn Hayden, knew that a win against the 2011 Preakness winner would be unlikely. They decided to enter the horse, Poseidon's Warrior, anyway, and so on Sunday the Maryland-bred horse was at the gate of an off track at the grade I race at Saratoga. His odds were 36-1, the second longest shot in the field.

Saratoga St. One possible subject of the mural is university and hospital founder Johns Hopkins, who owned a house that once stood where the garage would rise.
