Vintage Hollywood took on a tough group of allowance horses in race 6 at the Spa today and could only manage a nonthreatening 6th. He earned $740 for his effort, bringing his year's total to $63,410. A couple of our players used him in the Saratoga contest, hoping for a generous price, but he didn't reward them with the effort he showed last time out.

Top of the Game remained at the top of his game at Golden Gate Race 7 today. He won a starter allowance race for horses that have started for a claiming price of $8,000 or less in 2018-2020 and earned $8,400 for his win, increasing his 2020 earnings to $26,900.

Mid-August update. Red Razzo and Celesse are officially AWOL. Nasty Affair hasn't been seen since she was a vet scratch at Belmont. She's a one turn miler, so hopefully she'll show up in the entries after racing ships down the Thruway. I'm Not Joking had a second and a third in three starts since July 13. Disappointing second as the 3/5 favorite at Monmouth over the weekend. Need a miracle to keep my title.
Red Razzo....... 4 1 3 0 $52,760.00 I'm Not Joking.. 5 1 1 1 $35,300.00 Nasty Affair.... 2 1 1 0 $28,845.00 Celesse......... 1 1 0 0 $27,720.00 Total $144,625.00
Crumb Bun, whom I claimed for $25,000 in January, competed in the $60,000 Escena Stakes at Gulfstream Park today and ran what I thought was a creditable 2nd. She was in the race throughout and made a good move on the leader to challenge for the lead in deep stretch. I thought that Edgard Zayas, who rode the winner, engaged in some effective race riding to "discourage" Crumb Bun from going by. The chart caller called it "herding".
Crumb Bun earned $11,880 for her efforts, increasing her stable leading total for the year to $104,670.
