Saratoga Race Course 2019: Scenes From The $500K Diana Stakes

Trainer Chad Brown is once again making it look easy at Saratoga Race Course. His Sistercharlie ran to victory on Saturday, July 13, in the $500,000 Diana Stakes, the first Grade 1 stakes race to run at the Spa’s summer meet. With the W, Brown tied Hall of Fame trainer J. Elliot Burch’s record for most wins in the race, which run for the first time in 1939. “It’s quite an honor to be mentioned in the same sentence as a great trainer like him,” said Brown.

Also run on the Saturday card was the historic Sanford Stakes, the infamous race that felled superstar racehorse Man o’ War in 1919 to a horse named Upset. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the shocking defeat. This year’s winner? By Your Side.

Earlier that day, American Idol finalist and Cohoes native Madison VanDenburg stopped by the track to sing the National Anthem.
