FEATURED STORY

Cot Campbell, a longtime steeplechase owner and an ardent supporter of jump racing, was inducted into Saratoga Race Course’s Walk of Fame on Friday, Aug. 26.

Campbell and fellow inductee Bill Mott, a Racing Hall of Fame trainer, received their red jackets emblematic of Walk of Fame membership in ceremonies at the Upstate New York track.

An Aiken, S.C. resident with his wife, Anne, Campbell created Dogwood Stable, an innovator in syndicate ownership, in 1969. His keen eye for a horse, his masterful powers of persuasion, and the appeal of owning a racehorse propelled Dogwood to the forefront of the racing world.

Among Dogwood’s leading runners were Storm Song, Palace Malice, and Summer Squall, to name only three.

Dogwood also has raced steeplechase horses, and Inlander was voted the 1987 Eclipse Award after winning that year’s Colonial Cup.

Portrade scores in Turf Writers Cup; Help from Heaven takes allowance hurdle

The Fields Stable experienced the highs and lows of racing on Thursday as Portrade wired the field in Saratoga's prestigious $150,000 NY Turf Writers Cup, but lost favored stablemate Bob Le Beau, a multiple stakes winner and victor in the recent AP Smithwick, who broke down early in the race and had to be euthanized. Ridden by Gus Dahl (and trained by Elizabeth Voss), Portrade broke well and held off a bid by Ballybristol Farm's And'amu (Paddy Young) by a length. Portrade, at 13-1, and Andi'amu, at 20-1, were the two longest shots in the field. In Wednesday's allowance feature, Gigi Lazenby's Help From Heaven, trained by Doug Fout and ridden by Kieran Norris, held on for a neck win over hard-charging All of Us (Duodecim Stable, Jack Fisher, Connor Hankin).
