The summer racing season is upon us. Del Mar and Saratoga have held their opening weekends. The race distances are lengthening and the less precious juveniles being unwrapped like Christmas presents.

Every day on this blog from now until the end of the Saratoga and Del Mar meetings, I’ll point out blue blooded babies from my Kiddie List database that are entered to race or have a series of decent works.

Most two year olds will be mentioned only once or twice, but you can keep track of these babies through free virtual stable email notification systems at:
