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.

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 Equibase ( or DRF (
