Race does not go

The 35k maiden claimer for The Defense Rests was not used for Monday, July 25th, and was not brought back as an extra. The backup plan is the 50k maiden claimer going 6 furlongs on the dirt on Monday, August 1st at Saratoga. When a race does not go it means that there was not enough entrants to warrant its inclusion in the card by the racing secretary. It can be frustrating, but it's part of the game, and cannot be foreseen. TDR is ready to run, and although we'd prefer to run for 35k, the 50k race will likely attract a similar level of competition.
