Saratoga opens with a stake named for a true Saratoga horse for course the Quick Call

June 15, 2021

The 14th Running of the Quick Call will be on Thursday, July 15, 2021

Inaugurated in 2008, the Quick Call was named after the multiple graded stakes winning gelding who won more than half his 16 career victories at the Spa. Trained by Sid Watters, Jr. and Warren Croll, Quick Call finished fifth in the Saratoga Special in 1986, and went on to win nine races there each year from 1987-1990 including the Forego in 1988 and 1989.  He retired in 1992.
