This race was miraculous. My big goal was a 2:15 finish, which would have been a 4 minute PR for me. Mostly, Heather @littlebean-jellybean and I just wanted to run, talk, and enjoy hanging out for 13 miles.
All of a sudden by about mile 9, we were just behind the 2:10 pacer. And we stayed there. And stayed there. And even though I was DYING the last two miles, Heather was the peppiest, cheeriest, sweetest person you could ever hope to run with. And the last tenth, we hit it and crossed the finish line so freaking fast and happy. So I finished with a NINE FREAKING MINUTE PR today and I got to meet one of my best online friends (who is now also one of my best real life friends) and even though I almost passed out/puked in the gutter after coffee (I guess sugar and my stomach aren’t great friends after running that far that fast…), I would not trade a single second. Perfect weather, beautiful city, incredible friend. ❤😻🏃🏻♀️❤

The Midsummer Derby is always a good one, but this year really takes it to the next level. In a year where the 3yo dirt colts keep trading places at the top, this Travers will be a showdown with nearly every horse in the conversation. It’s also the first time we’re getting a summer showdown of all three classic horses in a long time.
Cloud Computing The Preakness Winner is coming in off the worst race of his otherwise very impressive career in the G2 Jim Dandy - where he lost a photo to be last. That race was well below his best, and he has the back class to win this.
Giuseppe the Great The surprise runner-up in the G2 Jim Dandy - where he finished well clear of both the Derby and Preakness winners - is again the longest shot on the board.
West Coast The buzz horse from Baffert has never been worse than second in six races and comes in off three straight wins. He’s already shipped east once this year and it resulted in his most impressive win - a romp in the listed Easy Goer.
Tapwrit The morning line favorite is the only one of the classic winning trio not to disappoint in his return; this is his first start since his big G1 Belmont win. He will probably enjoy the return to 1 ¼ miles more than anyone else in here.
Good Samaritan The turf bridesmaid turned dirt monster is looking to prove his romping win in the G2 Jim Dandy over the Derby & Preakness winners was no fluke. Any improvement off that effort makes him the one to beat here.
Girvin The recent Haskel Winner has been first or second in every start except the Derby itself - where he had a rough trip and was running with foot issues. He’s a tenacious colt and honest as they come.
Always Dreaming After ruling the spring with his G1 Florida & Kentucky Derby wins, Always Dreaming just hasn’t been the same. He was dueled into total submission in the Preakness then came up empty in the G2 Jim Dandy. Our Derby hero really needs to turn things around.
Lookin At Lee You can’t say he’s not consistent. He’s finished on the board in 8 of his 13 starts, and has been worse than 4th only twice. He hasn’t won in over a year, but boy does he cash a lot of checks.
McCraken Undefeated for the first four races of his career - including a dominating win over Tapwrite in the G3 Sam Davis - McCraken comes in off a very narrow loss to Girvin in the G1 Haskel. It certainly wouldn’t surprise anyone if he wins here today.
Irap One-time famous maiden has worked his way up from being the but of every joke to being a serious contender for a year end award. Toss the Kentucky Derby and he has 3 straight wins, including beating several of these in the G2 Blue Grass, out dueling Girvin in the G3 Ohio Derby, and romping over the eventual G3 WV Derby winner in the G3 Indiana Derby.
Gunnevera He’s your likely early trailer (with Lookin at Lee), and should be very dangerous if he gets the right pace set up. The G2 Fountain of Youth winner got a break after competing in the Derby and Preakness, but showed he’s ready after running away with a listed stakes in his last run.
Fayeq A recent maiden and allowance winner is getting quite the acid test in here. He certainly loves Saratoga and has the breeding to like the distance considering he’s a half-brother to Rachel Alexandra.
My favorits in here: Irap, Good Samaritan, Girvin
Though I’ll be really happy if Fayeq wins and will laugh my ass off if Giuseppe The Great gets it.
“Everyone else is relying on ugly, why can’t I rely on pretty?!”
Me cosplaying as the astonishing, brilliant, amazingly sweet, ultra-talented, wise and absolutely stunning Miss Courtney Act! It was such an honor to pay homage to her… She is truly an inspiration to me and I really look up to her.
And also, this is one of my favorite looks of hers and so it was so much fun to shoot! She really had some of the BEST looks on Drag Race!
All photos taken by Miss Missy Photography!
(SPECIAL THANKS to Courtney for letting me borrow her sparkly hair cap and fishy!)
Weekend race update~
Ugly race photos are the best ;)
What a fun fun fun race. Finally gaining confidence in my fitness and strength and it’s such a good feeling. Couldn’t have asked for a better start to the post season.
I was a little nervous because of the wind and I thought I would blow away compared to how strong my competition is.
(Realized I had to pee immediately after the gun went off and my quads felt like rocks because it was so cold)
Also got to race some of my favorites from tumblr so that’s always nice :)
But this season I’m racing for two people who I miss so much and I hope I’m making them proud. 💕
Ps: I slept with my plaques underneath my pillow hehe
