There’s still time to register for Fantasy Capping, a free handicapping game and contest from the Breeders’ Cup (a Hello Race Fans sponsor). This week’s race is that Grade 1 Alabama Stakes at Saratoga for 3-year-old fillies going a 1 1/4 (10-furlongs, the same distance as the Kentucky Derby).

The race drew a competitive field that includes winners from the Grade 1 Mother Goose, Grade 1 Coaching Club Oaks, Grade 1 Spinaway Stakes and the Grade 2 Delaware Oaks. The Alabama was first run in 1872, making it the longest running race for 3-year-old fillies in the U.S., and since 1936 a whopping 42 champion 3-year-old fillies, including last year’s winner Royal Delta, finished first, second or third in the Alabama.
