Michael Phelps will likely end Tuesday with an Olympic record of 19 career medals (See below for more details from Bloomberg News)

Michael Phelps eyes history and the U.S. women's gymnastics team looks to grab gold on Day 4 in London.

Jordyn Wieber and the U.S. lead Russia and China heading into the gymnastics team final

Al Tielemans/SPORTS ILLUSTRATED - LONDON -- The final rival for Michael Phelps is a 77-year-old gymnast whose athletic career ended decades ago. Tonight, Phelps swims for history, and with two medal races (the 200 butterfly and 4x200 freestyle relay) and two strong changes to hit the podium, he should end his evening with a record 19 career Olympic medals. That would put him one medal beyond Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina, and firmly atop Mt. Olympics.

The American swimmer is the individual headliner on Tuesday but the team to watch will be the U.S. women's gymnastics squad as the team final competition begins at 11:30 a.m. The U.S. women lead Russia and China after qualifying, and it will be an upset if they do not bring home gold. Medals will also be awarded today in canoe slalom, diving, equestrian, fencing, judo, shooting and weightlifting.

What to Watch (All Times ET)

• Phelps won the 200 butterfly in Athens and Beijing and is the favorite for the final, which starts at 2:49 p.m. With any color medal -- Phelps is SI's pick to win gold over Takeshi Matsuda of Japan -- he would tie Latynina for the all-time mark. Though, Phelps had the fourth-fastest run in qualifying, he was quite happy with his swim. Matsuda, South Africa's Chad le Clos and Chen Ye of China are Phelps' strongest competitors.

The women's 200 freestyle (2:41 p.m.) is a stacked race, including Missy Franklin (who won the 100 backstroke final) and Allison Schmitt of the U.S., France's Camille Muffat and Italy's Federica Pellegrini, who won the event in Beijing. Franklin qualified eighth, but will be in the hunt in the final.

[KILLION: Franklin's legend continues to grow]

Australia's Stephanie Rice was the prerace favorite in the 200 individual medley (3:43 p.m.) but watch out for China's 16-year-old comet Ye Shiwen, who set an Olympic record in the semis, and Australia's Alicia Coutts. Rice finished a surprising sixth in the 400 IM, in a race won handedly by Shiwen.

The last medal event of the night in swimming is the men's 4x200 freestyle relay, in which Phelps (and possibly Ryan Lochte) will compete in an event the U.S. has set 11 world records in since 1920. SI predicts a U.S.-France-Australia finish, and it would be shocking if the U.S. does not medal here.

There will also be preliminary heats (starting at 5 a.m.) and semifinals (starting at 2:30 p.m.) in the men's 100 free (the Australian pair of James Magnussen and James Roberts are the ones to watch); women's 200 butterfly (Japan's Natsumi Hoshi is SI's pick in the final), men's 200 breast stroke (Japan's Kosuke Kitajima gets another shot at gold)

• Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, Kyla Ross and Jordyn Wieber will compete for the U.S. in the gymnastics team final (11:30 a.m. start), leading the competition heading in with a score of 181.863 followed by Russia (180.429), China (176.637) and Romania close behind at 176.264. Great Britain, Japan, Italy and Canada round out the eight teams who advanced to the final at North Greenwich Arena.

[CAZENEUVE: U.S. needs Wieber's best to win gold]

• Wimbledon has plenty of A-listers on center court today, including women's singles action featuring Venus Williams (U.S.) vs. Aleksandra Wozniak (Canada), Jarkko Nieminen (Finland) vs. Andy Murray (Great Britain), Andy Roddick (U.S.) vs. Novak Djokovic (Serbia) and Laura Robson (Great Britain) vs. Maria Sharapova (Russia). The matches start at 7 a.m.

[WERTHEIM: Mixed reviews for Wimbledon's new lawn]

• Archery features men's and women's individual action. Among the American competing today are Jacob Wukie (4:13 a.m.) and Jennifer Nichols (5:44 a.m.).

• Badminton continues with men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles and mixed doubles. Play begins at 3:30 a.m. and runs until the final match (which starts at 3:54 p.m.).

After cruising past France in their opener, LeBron James and Co. take on Tunisia today.

John W. McDonough/SI

• Look for the U.S. men's basketball team -- who rolled over France by 27 in its opener on Sunday -- to continue the party against Tunisia (5:15 p.m.) Other games of note include Australia-Spain (6:15 a.m.) and France-Argentina (3 p.m.). Spain defeated China by 16 in its opener.

[THOMSEN: Love becoming key contributor for U.S.]

• Jamel Herring of the U. S. faces Daniyar Yeleussinov in a men's light welterweight bout (opening bouts start at 8:30 a.m.; second session starts at 3:30 p.m.). Boxing also has men's light flyweight action.

• France's Tony Estanguet is SI's pick for gold in the canoe single (C1) men's final (10:06 a.m.) at the Lee Valley White Water Centre.

• The U.S. women' soccer team looks to improve to 3-0 in pool play as it faces North Korea (12:15 p.m.) at Old Trafford. Other games of note include Japan-South Africa (9:30 a.m.), Canada-Sweden (9:30 a.m.) and Great Britain-Brazil (2:45 p.m.).

• SI's pick for the women's synchronized 10m platform diving final (10 a.m.) is the Chinese team of Chen Ruolin and Wang Hao. Mexico's Paola Espinosa and Alejandra Orozco are also serious contenders.

• Equestrian medals will be handed out in the eventing team jumping final (5:30 a.m.) and eventing individual jumping final (9:30 a.m.)

• Italy's Andrea Cassara is SI's pick for the men's foil individual finals (2:10 p.m.). The American Race Imboden is also a contender. The prelims begin at 5:30 a.m.

• Argentina is SI's pick in women's field hockey and the U.S. gets its opportunity to upset the favorites today (2 p.m.) at Riverbank Arena. A rising U.S. team defeated Argentina at the '11 Pan-Am Games and lost to Germany 2-1 in its London opener.

• Men's team handball continues with six matches, including Serbia-Croatia (11:15 a.m.) at Copper Box.

• Judo will hand out two medals, including the women's 63kg (11 a.m.) and men's 81kg (11:10 a.m.) Azerbaijan's Elnur Mammadli won the latter event in Beijing and is looking to repeat.

• Norway's Tore Brovold and Valeriy Shomin of Russia are the favorites in the skeet men's final (9 a.m.).

• The men's and women's singles quarterfinals in table tennis will be contested, including an anticipated match between China's Ding Ning and Japan's Ai Fukuhara (7 a.m.). Play commences at 5 a.m.

• There are six men's volleyball matches today, including the U.S. against Germany (11:45 a.m.) and Brazil-Russia (5 p.m.).

• The U.S. men's water polo team plays Romania at 2:40 p.m., one of six matches today in that sport. One to watch is Olympic titleholders Hungary against European championship runners-up Montenegro (3 p.m.).

• Weightlifting will hand out medals today in the women's 63kg and men's 69kg categories.

Germany Wins First Olympic Gold; Phelps Aims for Medal Record

By Bob Bensch on July 31, 2012

Germany successfully defended its title in the equestrian team event for its first gold medal at the London Games, where swimmer Michael Phelps seeks to become the most decorated Olympic athlete in history.

Germany's team of Peter Thomsen, Dirk Schrade, Sandra Auffarth, Michael Jung and Ingrid Klimke won with a score of 133.70 penalty points. Britain, with a team including Zara Phillips, the 31-year-old granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth, took the silver medal with 138.20 points and New Zealand won bronze with 144.40. The lowest penalty score wins in equestrian eventing.

That gold medal was the first of 15 to be awarded today, including women's team gymnastics and four in swimming. Vincent Hancock of the U.S. won the men's skeet shooting gold with an Olympic-record score of 123.

Phelps can set the mark for most Olympic medals by winning two in the pool today. The 27-year-old American will defend his title in the 200-meter butterfly and is likely to be part of the U.S.'s 800-meter freestyle relay team, which was the fastest qualifier for tonight's final.

Phelps earned his 17th Olympic medal, a silver in the 400- meter freestyle relay, two days ago, moving within one of the record set by Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina. He holds the records for gold medals in a single games, with eight in Beijing four years ago, and for his career, with 14.

Venus Williams Advances

China's Ye Shiwen, 16, who set a world record in winning the women's 400-meter individual medley three days ago, will swim in the women's 200-meter IM. American Missy Franklin, 17, looks to win the 200-meter freestyle a day after taking the 100-meter backstroke gold.

Venus Williams of the U.S. moved into the third round of the women's tennis event at Wimbledon with a 6-1, 6-3 win over Canada's Aleksandra Wozniak. Later today, Russia's Maria Sharapova meets Britain's Laura Robson, while Serbia's Novak Djokovic plays Andy Roddick of the U.S.

The U.S. will seek its first gold medal since 1996 in today's women's gymnastics team event. The Americans had the top qualifying score, finishing ahead of Russia, China and Romania.

SARATOGA RACE COURSE NOTES
New York Racing Association

•Met Mile hero Shackleford may alter plans and run in next weekend's G1 Vanderbilt as springboard to Forego

•Hunters Bay, Tu Endie Wei to arrive Monday for G1 Whitney, G1 Prioress

•Quick Call victor Artest possible for August 15 Troy; Upgrade under consideration for G2 Fourstardave

•5 YO mare Island Bound eyes second graded stakes win in G2 Honorable Miss

•McPeek hoping for good late run from Atigun in G2 Jim Dandy

•Low profile Aro returns to Spa for G2 Honorable Miss

•NYRA offering Facebook drawing for Curlin, Rachel Alexandra prints

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - Instead of going straight to the Grade 1, $500,000 Forego on Saturday, September 1 as originally planned, multiple Grade 1 winner Shackleford may run on Sunday, August 5 in the Grade 1, $400,000 Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap.

"There is a slim chance that Shackleford might show up in the Vanderbilt," said trainer Dale Romans. "A lot depends on how he breezes at Churchill tomorrow. It has been in the back of my mind for a while."

Owned by Bill Cubbedge and Michael Lauffer, Shackleford most recently ran perhaps the top race of 2012 to this point, defeating Caleb's Posse by a nose in the prestigious Grade 1, $750,000 Metropolitan Handicap on May 28 at Belmont.

Romans previously indicated that the 4-year-old son of Forestry would await the Forego, but he has seen signs that the 2011 Preakness winner might be ready sooner.

"He's starting to come out of his shell and I don't think it will be as taxing on him as the one and one eighth miles of the Whitney," Romans said. "He's a horse that likes to run, and if nothing else, it would be a good prep for the Forego. He only has three or four more races left in his career, so we might as well get them."

If Shackleford does run in the Vanderbilt, it would be the first time in his career trying six furlongs. Because he was not nominated for the race, he would need to be supplemented for $8,000.

Trainer Reade Baker said Grade 1 Whitney Handicap candidate Hunters Bay and Grade 1 Prioress probable Tu Endie Wei will work tomorrow morning at Woodbine and ship to Saratoga on Monday morning for their engagements in next Saturday's races.

"Everything's a go," Baker said from Toronto. "We'll have to find out what the weights are for the Whitney before we know for sure."

Winner of three straight at Woodbine, including the Grade 3 Dominion Day at 1 ¼ miles and the Grade 3 Eclipse at 1 1/16 miles, the 5-year-old son of Ghostzapper hasn't run past a mile in the United States since breaking his maiden at Belmont at 1 1/16 miles in May, 2010.

"We've always ended up sprinting in Florida; we've never had the chance to go long," he noted, adding that the Grade 1, $750,000 Woodward on September 3 and the Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup on October 6 were long-term objectives for Hunters Bay en route to the Breeders' Cup.

Tu Endie Wei, 4-1-0 at Woodbine, was making her first start on dirt when she finished third in the Grade 3 Victory Ride at Belmont.

"I think that she'll end up running her best races on dirt, not Polytrack," Baker said of the 3-year-old Johar filly. "Given that she had some mucus that day and got shuffled at the start, that might have been the best race of her life."

He indicated that Tu Endie Wei likely would make one more start before the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint.

Baker said he would like Tu Endie Wei and Hunters Bay to be stabled near Hall of Fame trainer H. Allen Jerkens, whose longshot Emma's Encore won the Victory Ride.

"He and I went out to dinner the night before the race, and he was moaning about not being in the right race with her," said Baker. "He led me down the garden path."
* * *
Trainer Michele Nihei reported that Artest, who rallied from sixth to win Thursday's 5 ½-furlong Quick Call by 1 ½ lengths on one week's rest, emerged from his quick turnaround in fine form.

"Most of the credit has to go to [owner] Dennis Narlinger," she said. "I'm not the type of person to wheel horses back like that. We really wanted to see if this horse wants to be a closing sprinter. It's been a little frustrating, because he's the type of horse that screams talent in the mornings. This morning, the horse was like 'See? I told you this is what I wanted to do!'"

Nihei said the 3-year-old Hard Spun colt possibly could face older horses in the 5 ½-furlong Troy on August 15.

"At the moment we need to see if we can keep him on a progressive racing schedule," said Nihei. "The Troy is three times as far away as the Quick Call was from his last race; we'll look at anything short on the grass."

Nihei added that Upgrade, winner of the Grade 3, seven-furlong Jaipur at Belmont Park on June 8, was under serious consideration for the Grade 2, $500,000 Fourstardave Handicap on August 11.

"It's a mile, but I like the way he's been training the past few days," she said. "It's a challenging spot for him. But he's on schedule for it if that's where we decide to go."

Grade 1 Jamaica winner Prince Will I Am, unraced since the 2011 Woodford Reserve Manhattan Handicap, continues to train well for a return to racing, said the trainer. A third workout is upcoming for the 5-year-old Victory Gallop ridgling, who last Sunday went a half-mile in 49.58.

"We had been looking at the [August 3] John's Call, but that may be a little bit ahead of his schedule," said Nihei. "If not, then we'll look at something for when we get back to Belmont, or maybe at Keeneland."
* * *
Among those pointing to next Friday's Grade 2, $200,000 Honorable Miss is the well-traveled 5-year-old mare Island Bound, a former claimer who earned her first graded stakes victory on June 2 when she rallied from seventh to win the Grade 3 Winning Colors at Churchill Downs. Subsequently fifth in Belmont's Grade 3 Bed o' Roses in her only off-the-board outing of 2012, the daughter of Speightstown likely will have her final prep for the six-furlong race on Sunday, said trainer Ian Wilkes.

"She's really turned the corner this year," said Wilkes. "Last year we were running her for a $30,000 tag. All of a sudden, this year she got good. She's doing well up here, as well. I think in her last race, the inside post hurt her. They went the first quarter in :23, and that kind of left me in the jackpot."

Owned by Robert T. Manfuso, Island Bound is 3-3-0 from seven starts this year with earnings of $155,075.
* * *
Michael Aro might not be a name a lot of race fans recognize, but the 55-year-old trainer has been a pretty good sleeper over the years at Saratoga. In the late 1990s, he shipped in to the Spa four years in a row, winning each time with a tough claimer named Champagne for Lisa.

In 1990, he won the third race on Alabama Day with Keynote Speaker at 25-1.

Aro is the son of a jockey who rode on the Maryland small-track circuit before he got too big, and he cut his teeth as a horseman under the top New England trainer J.J Kelly in the 1980s at Rockingham Park. He keeps a stable of about 14, including steeplechasers, at Parx Racing, and has his sights set on Saratoga again this year.

On Thursday, he plans to run a steeplechaser and then show up for a bigger challenge August 3 with Winning Image for the Grade 2, $200,000 Honorable Miss, a six-furlong sprint stakes for 3-year-olds and up.

"The only thing I've done at Saratoga so far is make a few bucks," Aro said Friday morning. "Keynote Speaker, Champagne for Lisa, she was a nice claiming mare. I've had a few winners."

Winning Image, owned by Martin Scafidi, has won two stakes races this year, both at Parx, and finished third in her most recent start, the $150,000 Sweet and Sassy Stakes on June 23 at Delaware Park.

As usual that day, Winning Image was on the lead, but gave way to third in the stretch.

"That jockey tried to fix running water," joked Aro, referring to regular rider Jose Caraballo, who retains the mount for the Honorable Miss. "I think she'll be on top of her game this time. She worked awful fast the other day (four furlongs in 47.39 seconds on July 25). She's very competitive; she gives 110 percent all the time."

Winning Image has only been off the board in one of her past seven starts, a seventh-place finish behind Nicole H in the Correction on February 4 on the inner dirt at Aqueduct.

"This past winter she came up with a lung infection and that was her only bad race," Aro said.

Four of Winning Image's seven wins have come at Suffolk Downs and the other three were in stakes races at Parx.

Aro believes the 5-year-old Southern Image mare is ready to win at her third track. "She gets up two or three, relaxes, and that's it," he said.
* * *
Though concerned that the 1 1/8 miles of tomorrow's Grade 2, $600,000 Jim Dandy might be too short for Atigun, trainer Ken McPeek said that the Istan colt didn't have to win to move on to the Grade 1, $1 million Travers on August 25.

"We'd like to see him come running late," he said of Atigun, most recently third behind Union Rags and Paynter in the Grade 1, ½-mile Belmont Stakes. "And if he doesn't win, as long as he's competing and gaining ground late, that's fine."

McPeek said he was unconcerned about the potential pace dynamics in the Jim Dandy.

"I never try to guess," he said. "I've seen races where you expected a ton of pace and there was none, and races where you didn't think there'd be any and there was plenty.

We're going to let him run his race and if it sets up for him, fine."

McPeek added that Atigun has been doing well since the Belmont Stakes on June 9.

"It was a good, solid race," he said. "He came out of it fine and easy, no problems."

The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) is conducting a free drawing over Facebook in which three fans will win a print commemorating the respective wins by Curlin and Rachel Alexandra in the 2008 and 2009 Grade 1 Woodward at Saratoga Race Course.

The Woodward was a critical piece in the Horse of the Year campaigns for both Curlin and Rachel Alexandra. The name of their foal will be announced later today after the Curlin Stakes, the eighth race on the card.

Entries for the contest will be accepted until 11:59 PM ET on Sunday, August 5, 2012. Contestants must "like" NYRA on Facebook to be eligible to win.

Those who get three friends to sign up will be entered to win a secret prize.

Robin Roberts to Take Medical Leave for Bone-Marrow Transplant

By Alison Schwartz

Friday July 27, 2012 08:00 AM EDT

As ABC's Good Morning America and NBC's Today show continue to vie for ratings, Robin Roberts is taking time out to focus on her own battle, with myelodysplastic syndrome.

The anchor, 51, expects to take a medical leave in late August or early September from her morning show, which has reigned over Today for the past four weeks, to undergo a bone-marrow transplant.

"It's fascinating-slash-scary how to prepare yourself for something like this," Roberts told reporters gathered for the Television Critics Association conference in Beverly Hills, Calif., via satellite from ABC's studios in New York, according to New York's Daily News.

Roberts - who revealed she was batting the rare disease of the blood and bone marrow in June with the subsequent news that her sister would donate bone marrow - says she feels "moments of fatigue" lately, although her job has helped her pull through.

"The [ratings] run that we've had has truly energized me," said Roberts, who successfully battled breast cancer five years ago. "It's pretty good medicine - I gotta say."

Filling in through her absence, reports the Daily News, quoting possibilities provided by ABC News president Ben Sherwood: such familiar faces as Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric, Kelly Ripa and the cast of The View.

Now we've already had our first Twitter oops! moment:

Assuming you don't know Greece's Voula Papachristou, you know her now because of a Tweet! She is the winning triple jumper who committed a social media faux-pas: on Twitter you don't have to be famous to become famous with one simple tweet!

Not surprising it happened. So many on Twitter, so many not thinking because they're in the moment.

Papachristou, set to compete for Greece, but didn't even make it out of her country to London because of racially charged tweets Sunday.

She made inappropriate comment of the influx of African immigrants to her country. Papachristou also tweeted on the presence of virus-carrying mosquitoes in Athens: "With so many Africans in Greece, the West Nile mosquitoes will be getting home food!!!''

Greece kicked her out these Olympic games immediately for her in-real-time racist tweets.

Twitter's a global bullhorn can be useful but also an all too easy path to instant infamy. Think before you tweet. And, never tweet when you are not fully yourself.

Especially: do not drunk tweet!

But decision-makers usually feel compelled to show no mercy when everyone is watching, and they didn't here. Papachristou apologized. Too little, too late.

Understanding the perils of social media is clearly a work in process for athletes. And, should be a strong lesson for all of us in the Twitter world.

Don't be foolish. The Twitter mantra: think before you tweet.

Papachristou's wouldn't fill a handball arena before this tweet, but now, she is known for being a racist. And, she will not appear in the Olympics. How can that feel for her, the country of Greece and all the athlete's who use Twitter? Lesson learned, hopefully. We shall see over the next couple weeks.

The whole world is watching and many tweeting!

Enjoy the games and be responsible as you comment.

NEW YORK YANKEES ALL-STAR MARIANO RIVERA TO APPEAR

AT FUNDRAISING DINNER AT SIRO'S TRATTORIA AT THE LODGE

Private dinner, photo with Rivera and signed baseball among highlights of event to support Mariano Rivera Foundation on August 9

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - Siro's Trattoria at the Lodge will welcome legendary New York Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera for "An Evening with Mo" to support the Mariano River Foundation on Thursday, August 9 at 6:30 p.m.

The exclusive evening will include a plated dinner and a casual conversation with Rivera. Attendees will also receive a signed baseball and have their photograph taken with the All-Star New York Yankees pitcher.

The private dinner at Siro's Trattoria at the Lodge will benefit the Mariano Rivera Foundation, which addresses children's needs through programs that focus on education, health and wellness.

"Mariano Rivera is one of the most respected and beloved figures in sports," said Keith Kantrowitz, president of Racing Restaurants of America whose portfolio includes Siro's Trattoria at the Lodge. "He loves horses and since he's a part owner in Siro's, he's been looking forward to visiting Saratoga for some time. We're honored to host one of the legendary figures in sports at an event that will benefit children in New York and in Mo's native Panama."

Rivera played briefly for the Albany-Colonie Yankees before he began his major league career with the Yankees in 1995. He is regarded as the most dominant relief pitcher in baseball history. The 12-time All-Star and five-time World Series champion has handcuffed batters with his legendary cut fast ball on the way to becoming baseball's greatest postseason pitcher ever. In 2011, he set the Major League Baseball record for career regular-season saves which currently stands at 608. Rivera is recovering from knee surgery following a season-ending injury in May and plans to return to the Yankees next year for his 19th major league season.

Tickets for "An Evening with Mo" at Siro's Trattoria at the Lodge are available for $500 per person. To purchase tickets, call 516-355-4514. Siro's Trattoria at the Lodge is located at 1 Nelson Ave. in Saratoga Springs. For more information about the Mariano Rivers Foundation, please visit

NCAA PRESS CONFERENCE - 9 AM EDT

Severe Penalties handed down against Penn State by NCAA

Leadership failures violated NCAA bylaws

After examination, recommendations:

NCAA President Mark Emmert stated this morning:

Purpose is to impose punitive sanctions to educate, nuture and protect young people at colleges and universities as well as provide positive moral models for students.

Promote NCAA rules

1. fine: $60million - funds to support programs to prevent child sexual abuse; just one year of what Penn State made from football;

2. Penn State banned from bowl games and post games for 4 years;

3. Loss of scholarships: Scholarships cut from 25 to 15;

4. Athlete must maintain education standards;

5. Penn State serve 5 year probationary period;

6. NCAA will investigate after legal

VACATES PATERNO's WINS FROM 1998 TO 2011: Wiped off the years that Joe Paterno knew about Jerry Sandusky during a 14 year of wins.

Also, compliance counsel fully integrated in broader university. Integrity monitor will report on progress of Penn State.

Death Penalty not instituted: which would have been the suspension of football for one or more year, a multi-year suspension would be an option but would destroy the football program far beyond Penn State.

Now Penn State will focus on rebuilding a team on NCAA bylaws, not bowl games.

According to an ESPN.com report, Penn State was not expected to receive the death penalty, which would have closed down the school's football program for at least one year. Rather, the report stated, the penalties included "a significant loss of scholarships and loss of multiple bowls."

It is the process by which the NCAA is taking action against Penn State -- rather than the penalties the NCAA issued -- that's so unparalleled.

Either the NCAA Division I Board of Directors or the NCAA Executive Committee (or both) has armed Emmert with the ability to sanction using unconventional measures, according to ESPN.com.

The NCAA, the governing body of college athletics, has not penalized a member institution without first holding a Committee on Infractions hearing.

Setting this matter further apart from all prior instances in which the NCAA has sanctioned a school is that Penn State is not believed to have committed any violations of specific NCAA regulations.

Earlier this month, former FBI director Louis Freeh released a report that found Paterno, in concert with three other top Penn State officials, had covered up allegations of child sexual abuse made against Jerry Sandusky, a former assistant coach on the football team, for 14 years.

Typically, the NCAA goes through a process that can span more than a year when it has reason to believe violations of its rules have been committed. That process includes an NCAA investigation, the issuances of a notice of allegations, time for the accused school to respond, a Committee on Infractions hearing and time for the committee to draw its findings. None of that has taken place in the case of Penn State.

Using immoral or criminal behavior as a means to justify sanctions would constitute new territory for the NCAA.

In perhaps an attempt to mollify the NCAA, Penn State took down on Sunday morning the 7-foot, 900-pound bronze statue of Paterno that was built in 2001.

In a statement, the Paterno family decried the statue's removal from its pedestal outside Beaver Stadium as an act that "does not serve the victims of Jerry Sandusky's horrible crimes or help heal the Penn State community."

BERN IDENTITY REVEALS GRIT, TALENT IN SANFORD; EARNS $100K BONUS

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. –

With a determined run through the stretch, favored Bern Identity wore down front-running Handsome Jack and went on to a lucrative 1 ¼-length victory in Sunday’'s 98th running of the Grade 2, $200,000 Sanford at Saratoga Race Course.

Along with his $120,000 share of the purse, the Bernstein colt became the first horse to win the new $100,000 juvenile bonus from The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA). The bonus, instituted this year, is awarded to any 2-year-old maiden winner at Aqueduct Racetrack or Belmont Park who goes on to win a graded stakes at a NYRA track.

“The extra $100,000 bonus makes it all sweeter. So, thanks, NYRA!” said winning trainer Kelly Breen, who had saddled Bern Identity to a 13 ¾-length win at Belmont Park on June 1. “Even for his first start, without the bonus, I don’t know if I would have run him in New York to begin with. Maybe with the big money here, we’ll have to think about bringing some more horses here.”

Although he broke his maiden in front-running fashion, Bern Identity and jockey Rosie Napravnik found themselves in fourth when the gates opened, several lengths behind Handsome Jack and Brave Dave, who duked it out through an opening quarter-mile in 21.60 seconds and a half in 44.70. Moving up within striking distance of the leaders on the turn, Bern Identity took aim on Handsome Jack after Brave Dave went extremely wide, gaining the lead inside the eighth pole and prevailing in 1:11.13 for the six furlongs.

“He ran great. He’s really got a lot of grit,” said Napravnik, who with the win earned her first graded stakes at Saratoga. “We weren’t quite as forwardly placed as I thought we might be, but the pace was extremely fast. He just hung in there down on the rail and finished strongest coming for home. He’s extremely talented and, on top of that, he’s got a lot of heart.”

Owned by George and Lori Hall, whose 2011 Belmont Stakes winner Ruler On Ice returns to the races at the Spa on Wednesday, Bern Identity returned $5.60 for a $2 win bet as the 9-5 favorite over seven other 2-year-olds. His payday lifted his earnings to $276,000 with two wins and a second from three starts.

The Sanford was leg 5 of Sunday’s Pick 6, which had a two-day carryover of $280,309.44. With more than $1 million bet into the pool, there were 31 winning tickets, including six on track, that returned $28,666.

With the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Sprint a possible year-end objective, Breen and George Hall said they were not sure whether Bern Identity would return for the final 2-year-old stakes at the meet, the seven-furlong Grade 2 Three Chimneys Hopeful on closing day, Monday, September 3.

“We’ll see how he comes out of the race and see what’s between here and the Breeders’ Cup; obviously, that’s where we’d like to get,” said Hall.

Runner-up Handsome Jack was three-quarters of a length clear of late-running Onetwentyeight, who in turn was followed by Brave Dave, John Gordon, Special Jo, Hightail, and Rose Junction. Good Tickled was scratched.

RAMON DOMINGUEZ BECOMES 2nd JOCKEY TO WIN SIX RACES IN ONE DAY AT SARATOGA RACE COURSE

Sunday, July 22, 2012

NYRA - NEW YORK RACING ASSOCIATION

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - Ramon Dominguez, the reigning two-time Eclipse Award winner as Outstanding Jockey, joined Hall of Famer John Velazquez on Sunday as the only riders in the 144-year history of Saratoga Race Course to win six races on a single card.

"I am very excited. Coming into today, I looked at the program and was very excited about my chances," said Dominguez, who won on six of seven mounts. "We all know luck is a big factor. Everything clicked into place. I am very happy to win six races. At Saratoga, it's anybody's dream. This is a place you want to do it, for sure. Saratoga is really the meet. It doesn't get any better than this. I give [my agent, Steve Rushing] all the credit in the world. He puts me in the position to do this consistently and do well. Then again, if you ask him, he will give all the credit to the trainers and the owners, and rightly so. I am very happy people support me."

Dominguez swept the early Daily Double ($14.00) with Paper Plane ($8.30), who held on by a neck, and favored Summer Front ($2.90), the authoritative winner of the Duluth overnight stakes. Without a mount in race 3, Dominguez returned to the winner's circle in race 4 with Rigby ($9.40) before suffering his only defeat when Current Design's rally fell one length short as the even-money favorite in race 5.

His next mount, Temper in Command ($8.60), closed stoutly in race 7 before Reach for a Peach ($6.90) made a determined run to take race 8, with the rolling Double paying $34.40. With his Grade 2 Sanford mount, Good Tickled, scratched, Dominguez demonstrated his sangfroid in the 10th and final race, waiting behind horses and splitting rivals in deep stretch to prevail aboard favored Wet One ($8.20).

"It was a great trip," said Dominguez of his ride in the finale. "But turning for home, I was very concerned because it didn't look like it was going to open up for me. I was happy my filly was in hand and ready to go right through it. Everything worked out great today."

On June 5, 2011, Dominguez became the first jockey since Jorge Velasquez in 1981 to win six races at Belmont Park. Prior to Sunday, the last jockey to win six at a NYRA track was Corey Nakatani, who achieved the feat on October 8, 2011 at Belmont.

Through the first three days of racing at Saratoga, Dominguez leads the jockey standings with nine wins, six more than Irad Ortiz, Jr., Jose Lezcano, Rosie Napravnik, Edgar Prado, and Joel Rosario, who are tied for second. Dominguez has led the year-end NYRA jockey standings the past three years and has won 17 meet titles, topping the Saratoga jockey standings in 2009.

Velazquez, who went 6-for-10 on September 3, 2001 at Saratoga, will return to the races on Wednesday with two scheduled mounts. Sidelined since fracturing his collarbone in a June 16 spill at Churchill Downs, Velazquez looks opens defense of his riding title, named for his mentor and agent, Hall of Famer Angel Cordero, Jr.

Below you will find a wonderful historical background of Saratoga Polo Association written by Hal Chaffee for the Saratoga Polo Association:

From the dust of over 2,000 years of history, polo, the game of kings gallops through the next millennium. For the past 100 years, polo ponies have thundered up and down the fields of the Saratoga Polo Club, leaving an impact as exciting as in the times of warriors and princes.

One hundred years of polo in Saratoga is only a speck of time in the sport's history, but oh what a time it has been. Four distinct marked this Saratoga century: 1898,1910,1926,1932,1979,1994 and 1995 to today.

The following history was researched through a variety of sources, including The Saratogian newspaper and United States Polo Association annuals. Saratoga historic records are not available in the years 1890 to 1900, and extensive out-of-area research was conducted to unearth historic details prior to 1900.

The First Era - 1898-1910

1898 & 1899. The Saratoga Polo Club was established in 1898, according to a book called The International Polo Club Guide for the Coronation Year 1902. (Editor's note: The author of this article discovered the rare book in the collection of Kirk Struggles, a Chicagoan who collects historic polo memorabilia. Struggles received the book in a shipment of old polo books from India. The publisher of the book was Joshua Newman, Saltford & Bristol, England.) Club colors: White and Green. Patron: William Collins Whitney. President: Roland W. Smith.

By 1901, when improvements to the field were completed, there were 12 paying members who paid an annual subscription of fifty dollars. The season was from June to September, with most tournaments played sometime between late July and the first week of September.

1900. John W. Manning was Delegate to the United States Polo Association, 1900-1901. Saratoga, Westchester Country Club and Philadelphia teams competed in the Saratoga Polo Cup and Sanford Cups in late July. Players included J.M. Waterbury Jr., R.E. Strawbridge and T. Hitchcock Jr.

1901. Saratoga, Squadron,and Visitors' teams competed in Sanford Cups, Hitchcock Cups and Ballston Spa Cups in late August. Players included H.P. Whitney, D. Milburn, T Hitchcock Jr. and A. Belmont.

1902. Harry Payne Whitney, son of William Collins Whitney, was Delegate to the United States Polo Association from 1902-1906. Lakewood, Rockaway, Westchester C.C., Dedham, Meadow Brook, Bryn Mawr and Saratoga teams competed in the Sanford Cups, Hitchcock Cups, Ballston Cups, Grand Union Hotel Cups, United States Hotel Cups, the Junior Championship Cup and the Senior Championship Cup. On August 2nd, William Waldorf Astor, Esq., presented the award for the first event of the Senior Championship through the Tuxedo Club. On August 7th, the Lakewood team won the final event but was voted ineligible at a November 21 meeting at Madison Square Garden. George, Jay and Kingdon Gould were three of the four players on the Lakewood team for the Junior Championship. Kingdon Gould received a crack on the nose and was revived with restoratives. Match was postponed one day and the Rockaway team won the first event.

On August 15th, the local lads played bicycle polo with a croquet ball at Franklin Square. At dusk, both teams declared victory.

1903. Buffalo, Albany and Saratoga teams competed in the Sanford Cups, Hitchcock Cups and Ballston Cups.

1904. Two teams from Albany and the Saratoga team competed in the Grand Union Hotel Cups, the U.S. Hotel Cups and Hitchcock Cups. Players included F.S. von Stade, R. Belmont, V. Mather and D.W. Maybee Jr.1905. Myopia, Albany and Saratoga teams competed in the Grand Union Cups, the U.S. Hotel Cups and the Hitchcock Cups.

1906. Meadow Brook, Myopia and Saratoga teams competed in the Grand Union Hotel Cups, the U.S. Hotel Cups and the Hitchcock Cups. Players included Morgan Belmont, F.W. Clark and J. Watson Webb for the Meadow Brook team. V. Mather played for the Saratoga team.

1907. August Belmont was delegate to the United States Polo Association from 1907-1910. Montreal, New Haven, Otsego and Saratoga teams competed in the Grand Union Hotel Cups and the U.S. Hotel Cups. August Belmont Jr., Raymond Belmont and F.S. von Stade played on the Saratoga team.

1908-1910. Tournament results were not listed in the United States Polo Association book. The last official season of this era is believed to be 1910. Harry Payne Whitney was one of this era's most outstanding players with a 10-goal handicap. Through his generosity, the Whitney polo field was maintained until the late 1920s. The Hughes ban on open betting in 1910 and 1911 drove down attendance.

The Second Era - 1926-1932

1926-1927. No records of polo were found in the archives of The Saratogian newspaper or the United States Polo Association annuals since 1910. A 1929 article in The Saratogian refers to polo beginning play in 1926.

1928. Winston Guest, Yale sensation of the past year, and Stewart Iglehart, the famous international player, lent color to the polo season. The White Team defeated the Blue Team 9-4. Players for the season included Major Louis A. Beard, Walter A. Goodwin, William Ziegler, Robert Gerry, Elbert T. Gerry III, R. Penn Smith, W. Averill Harriman and Marshall Field. Members voted to install proper drainage before next season.

1929. F. Skiddy von Stade and Stuart M. Don successfully worked the field back into shape after weeks of no rain. Players included C.V.B. Cushman of Boston and John Hay Whitney. The Senior and Junior Thomas Hitchcock families came up for a visit.

1930-1931. Games continued with two teams.
1932. The two teams playing this season included the following players: John Hay Jock Whitney, C.V. Sonny Whitney, F. Skiddy von Stade Jr., F. Skiddy von Stade Sr., Stephen Clark, Robert Young, W.M. McCoy, William Ziegler Jr., Robert Gerry, Edward Gerry and Henry Gerry. After 1932, no record of play has been discovered, but Pete Bostwick recalled playing around 1934 and he wound up with the sideboards from the field, using them on a field in Gilbertsville, New York.

The Third Era - 1979-1994

(Editor's note: At this point in the history of Saratoga Polo, the author helped spearhead a series of events to bring back the sport to upstate New York.)

1976-1978. A series of events in 1976 and 1977 involving Harvard, Oxford and Skidmore polo led me to meet with Leighton Jordan in December 1977. Jordan was captain and founder of the Skidmore polo team. We wondered why there was no summer polo in Saratoga and pursued the idea with Adam Winthrop, James Moseley, Don Little, Richard I.G. Jones, Paul Kant, David Mansfield and others. Mr. Jordan discovered there was a history of polo in Saratoga and I researched and discovered the original field on the Saturday of Easter weekend in 1978. We invited polo player Peter Brant to visit two weeks later to look at the sites. He brought along polo legend Tommy Glynn. Mr. Glynn took one look at the original field and said, "This is it." Mr. Brant backed the effort and one year later William S. Farish III expanded his support by becoming co-owner and co-chairman of the Saratoga Polo Association Ltd. Paul Kant prepared and seeded the field in the fall of 1978. Mr. Jordan and I performed administrative duties, including: starting a VIP for season members; securing Cup sponsors; starting a magazine; and working with Virginia Guest on a benefit match. Mr. Brant and Mr. Glynn focused on recruiting players and securing stabling for horses and equipment.

The rapid growth of polo play in Saratoga in the 80's paralleled Peter Brant's rise from a Low-Goal player to High-Goal player and patron. Horse racing in Saratoga continued its boom in popularity.

1979. The first season of this era was highlighted by the Saratoga Hospital Benefit Luncheon and the Carimati Cup. C.V. Sonny Whitney, son of Harry Payne Whitney, threw out the opening game ball. Mrs. Charles Kay

Mather II organized the event with 300 guests. Large sterling silver lotus-shaped Carimati bowls inspired fierce play on the field. Medium-Goal polo was played for the season. Tommy Glynn was polo manager. Players included trainers Allen Jerkens and Del Carroll. Winston Guest awarded the 21 Club's Puncheon Club Trophy and sportswriter Steve Cady gave the match a half-page article in the New York Times. Young Myopia defeated Young Saratoga 6-2. Jack Russell Terrier Trials and a Jockeys Versus Owners baseball game added fun to the season.

In September, additional land was purchased and a pond was built. The second field was expanded. Both fields were re-graded and leveled with a state-of-the-art laser leveling system.

1980. Through the efforts of Anne Palamountain, the new highlights of the season were the Skidmore College Benefit Luncheon and Carimati Cup. Jimmy Mills threw out the opening game ball. Medium Goal polo was played for the season. Players included: Alan Corey, Russell Corey, Peter Orthwein and Jonathan Sheppard. Pete Bostwick's Village Farms team won their match. Mr. Bostwick, who last played in Saratoga in the early '30s, returned with his sons Ricky and Charlie. Frank Dwyer began his first of many years as polo announcer.

1981. Highlights were the Skidmore College Benefit Luncheon and the Carimati Cup. The Saratoga team won the Carimati Cup. Sinclair Hill, former 10-goal Australian player, served as umpire. Medium-Goal polo was played for the season. Players included Gonzalo Pieres, Hector Barrantes, Edwardo Moore, John Armstrong, S.K. Johnson Jr., S.K. Johnson III, Bart Evans and Celestino Garos. Pete Bostwick's Village Farms team returned to play in the Pimm's Cup. Young Saratoga finally defeated Young Myopia 6-2.

1982. The first High-Goal season. The Skidmore College Benefit Luncheon and the First Cup were the big events. William Ylvisaker was honored with the First Award. HH the Rajmata of Jaipur threw out the opening game ball. Players included Gonzalo Tanoira, Alfonso Pieres, Gonzalo Pieres, Lord Sam Vesty, Antonio Herrara, Edwardo Moore, Benjamen Araya and Juan Martin Zaveletta. Bob Bailey sponsored the first of many Racemark Cups. Dick and Vickey Lossen sponsored the first of many Kentucky Cups. Young Myopia defeated Young Saratoga 6-2.

1983. The Skidmore College Benefit Luncheon and Keeler Motor Car Cup were the main events. Apollo astronaut Lt. Gen. Thomas Stafford presented the Omega Cup. Vanessa Williams, Miss New York State, helped present the Skidmore Cup. Players included: Julian Hipwood, Butch Butterworth, Henry de Kwiatowski, Hector Crotto and Lionel Macaire. White Birch, Kennelot, Boehm Palm Beach, Glenlivet, Aston Martin and Village Farms teams competed in a league. Jay Allan's cover photo on the 1983 magazine won an award.

1984. Red Armour, an American 9-goal player, was a welcome addition to the season. White Birch defeated the Piaget team 7-6 for the Piaget & Loewe Cup, which followed the annual Skidmore College Benefit Luncheon. Seven teams competed in a league: Airstream, Aston Martin, Kennelot Stables, Piaget, Rolex Abercrombie & Kent, Saratoga and White Birch. Anthony J. DePaula sponsored the first annual DePaula Chevrolet of Albany Cup.

1985. Attendance jumped from 400 to 550 for the Skidmore College Benefit Luncheon and Krizia Cup. Seven teams competed in a league with Centennial Farms replacing Aston Martin.

1986. The Skidmore Benefit was renamed the Skidmore Scholarship Luncheon & Palamountain Cup. A trio of 10-goal players battled on the playing fields: Gonzalo Pieres, Memo Gracida and Christian La Prida. The Kentucky Cup featured a sit-down dinner for 600 and an antique carriage display. In the Del Carroll Memorial Trophy match, Alejandro Diaz Alberdi (Piki) relentlessly pounded in 8 goals. White Birch won the league in the last match against Airstream.

1987. The first annual Thomas B. Glynn Cup was initiated by his many friends in honor of his many years of diplomatic service as the Saratoga and Greenwich polo manager. MVP players for the season included: Gonzalo Pieres, Alex Garrahan, Owen Rinehart, Michael Azzaro and Will Farish. The Palamountain Cup was especially sentimental with the recent death of Dr. Joseph Palamountain. Teams competing were: Centennial, Revlon, Saratoga, Upatoi and White Birch.

1988. Saratoga Polo celebrated the 10th season since its revival. Range Rover's Alex Garrahan, Revlon's Adam Snow and White Birch's Gonzalo Pieres won MVP awards. The Skidmore Scholarship Luncheon continued as the big event.

1989. Summer storms delayed the first week of play but the rest of the season was sunny. Peter Brant, now the nation's highest rated amateur at 7 goals, teamed up with 10-goal player Gonzalo Pieres on the White Birch team for another season of highly-competitive polo. Bob Bailey brought in his first High-Goal team, Racemark, to face the Revlon, Range Rover, Maple Croft and White Birch teams. A highlight of the Skidmore Scholarship Luncheon was the Caroline Herrera fashion show.

1990. Ron Bonaguidi brought in his Hanalei Bay team for a soggy season.

1991. The first annual Hector Barrantes Memorial Cup honored Hector's many years of play in Saratoga. The last Pimm's Cup is played after having been an annual event since 1981.

1992. The United States Polo Association awarded the 70-year-old Monty Waterbury Cup to Saratoga. Coupled with Saratoga's Hector Barrantes Memorial Cup, these two tournaments made up the bulk of the Saratoga schedule. Peter Brant's Indian Motorcycle/White Birch team, Bob Bailey's Racemark team, Michael Fawcett's Cold Comfort team, Michael Price's Longview team and Deborah Couple's Cadillac teams competed. Artist Christo attended the College of St. Rose Cup. Cadillac won the Monty Waterbury.1993. White Birch won the Hector Barrantes Memorial Cup. Tommy Biddle was MVP. Actor Tony Randall presented the College of St. Rose Cup to the Cold Comfort team. Jonathan Sheppard and the Saratoga team won the Thomas B. Glynn Cup. White Birch defeated Saratoga 12-8 in the Palamountain Cup.

1994. Michael Price's Longview team won the Monty Waterbury tournament. Michael Fawcett's Cold Comfort team defeated Longview in the Hector Barrantes Memorial Cup tournament. Longview, Cold Comfort, Outback and Racemark competed for the season. For the first time since Saratoga Polo's revival, Peter Brant and his White Birch team were not in Saratoga. Mr. Brant's new polo interest moved to Bridgehampton. The Skidmore Scholarship Luncheon was a success but the field was too wet for the Palamountain Cup match. The Palamountion Fund now approaches $1.2 million.

The Fourth Era - 1995 - today

Prelude. At the end of the 1994 season, Tony DePaula, Bob Bailey, George Hearst III and Linda and David Mansfield offered to purchase Saratoga Polo from Peter M. Brant and William S. Farish III.

Jim Collins continued as field manager. Frank Dwyer was the announcer.

1995. The new owners made improvements. Drainage was improved at Whitney Field. Central Stabling was found at Saratoga Equine Sports Center. An Historical Site Marker was approved by the State of New York for Whitney Field. A new Pete Bostwick Field was dedicated at Saratoga Equine Sports Center. The season included Medium-Goal polo in addition to the High-Goal August season. Polo rooms were built at the Saratoga Golf and Polo Club. Cold Comfort won the Hector Barrantes Memorial Cup and the Monty Waterbury Cup. Other teams included: Peapacton, APT. 35-C, Range Rover, Heartbeat Saratoga, Hurlingham, Racemark, Saratoga and Cotswold-Upatoi. Tommy Glynn turned 90 and two parties were held.

1996. Seven High-Goal teams competed: Casa Manila, Cotswold, Mokarow Financial, Estrella, Palm Restaurant Locusts, Peapacton and Racemark. Mokarow Financial won the Hector Barrantes Memorial Cup and Racemark won the Monty Waterbury Cup. Skidmore hosted its 17th annual benefit luncheon and featured a hat contest.

Actress Stephanie Powers was the featured guest for the College of St. Rose Cup. A Polo Museum benefit was held. Thomas A. Clemente Jr. purchased the Mansfields' interests and became an owner.

1997. The official name of the Saratoga Polo Association Ltd. was changed to the Saratoga Polo Club. Fayyaz Uddin returned to Saratoga as the new polo manager. David Zeliger ran a polo school. A new polo field was completed behind The Lodge Restaurant at the Saratoga Equine Sports Center. Another field on Gilbert Road, known as the Kuchesky Field, opened, bringing the total in Saratoga to five. Cotswold captured the Hector Barrantes Tournament. Palm Restaurant's Locusts won the Monty Waterbury Memorial Tournament. Three new board members were added: Wally Ganzi, Memo Gracida and Michael Price.In 1979 I remember Winston Guest found and contemplated an old horseshoe at the polo field. Was he thinking about that famous Blue versus White game in 1928 at the Saratoga Polo Club field? With any luck, polo will continue with memories just as sweet for today's players and those who support and are entertained by the sport of kings.

1999-2003. Polo Hall of Famer, William T. "Bill" Ylvisaker purchased Saratoga Polo, which continued to rack up a number of notable achievements. Fields and other facilities were built and upgraded, including the addition of a clubhouse. Events were established that became fixtures of the Saratoga summer.

The Fifth Era - 2004-Present
In 2004, new owners of Saratoga Polo - including current owners Jim Rossi and Mike Bucci - officially signed an agreement to purchase the club. Together, it is their goal to make polo more accessible and of interest to a broader audience.

What a perfect day of racing today, Saratoga!

EHPVillaSaratoga@aol.com

Friday night is the annual CAPTAIN Youth and Family Services fundraiser to help families at risk in Saratoga County. The organization will be celebrating 35 years of service to the region.

The 2012 gala, 'An Unbridled Affair' honors those in need. And, this year the Thoroughbred Champion Seattle Slew and the Slew Crew are the featured tribute and honorees.

'An Unbridled Affair' is being held at the Gideon Putnam Resort in Saratoga Springs, New York Friday evening July 20th - the opening day of Saratoga Race Course.

We are hosting our fourth annual Gala An Unbridled Affair: Celebrating Seattle Slew's 35th Triple Crown Anniversary.

Gala Chairs Leading New York Thoroughbred Trainer Gary Contessa and his wife, Jennifer are planning a spectacular event to include:

- A live auction featuring vacation get-a-ways and one of a kind experiences

- A silent auction with a variety of items to appeal to every taste

- A cocktail hour to enjoy with many Racing notables

- An elegant gourmet meal as well as some suprises!

RSVP: some seating is still available.

The CAPTAIN Mission

CAPTAIN is the principal advocate for the changing needs of youth and families in Saratoga County. Our mission is to provide services necessary to address those needs through social, educational and prevention programs, which encourage personal and social development in teens and families.

History

In 1977, a group of concerned parents came together to create a grassroots organization to help troubled teens. That movement soon became known as CAPTAIN (Community Action for Parents, Teens and Interested Neighbors). Since then, CAPTAIN has developed into one of the most recognized and highly respected, volunteer driven organizations, serving the principal needs of youth and families in Saratoga County and beyond.

For over 30 years, CAPTAIN has been providing programs which address the core issues facing our society including: homelessness, poverty, youth violence, underage drinking, drug use, academic failure and family dysfunction. CAPTAIN approaches these issues with specific programs and services including:
•Elementary and Adolescent Help-Lines (Teen Talk and Phone Friend);
•Youth Street Outreach;
•Runaway and Homeless Emergency Youth Shelter;
•Youth Development Programs (CAPteens);
•Community Outreach Afterschool Center for Youth (Cheryl's Lodge);
•Family Development; Emergency Family Assistance for rent and utilities;
•Emergency Food Pantry; and
•Community Education.

The ongoing success of these programs is due, largely in part, to an unusually strong and dedicated CAPTAIN Volunteer Corps.

See you there!

Have fun at Saratoga Race Course starting this Friday July 20th, 2012!

Excitement fills the air as teens text and make plans to attend the 171st annual Saratoga County Fair. My boys have big plans and will be joining all their buddies in Balston Spa to take all the rides, play all the games and eat all the food.

The teens make their plans for the evening while the youngsters with their parents venture out during the daylight hours.

Whenever you go, you will not be disappointed because this is one of the great Saratoga County traditions. People come from far and wide as well as locally to take in the sights, sounds and smells of summer fun!

This morning I heard the teens strategizing the best time to visit and they decided 7:30 pm tonight would be optimal. The air will cool down and the crowds will be thick with excitement.

All the Saratoga County teens are gearing up for the fun starting tonight as the Saratoga County Fair opens this evening for 171st time. They've been planning and talking about the fair for days.

The fair is also a great place to make new friends, find your friends from school who they have not seen in a couple weeks and generally enjoy a traditional summer right of passage. Who knows what magic will happen at a county fair!

The fair also provides families an excellent way to enjoy time together with the little ones who will, too, make the fair an annual tradition. The fun all began in Balston Spa this morning.

Little ones to adults scream and holler as they ride the Scrambler and various rides. The teens go for the wild rides while the children find rides much more suitable to their age. Thanks to the Moms and Dads who stay close-by and take hundreds of pictures of their smiling faces.

There is plenty of summer time fun and tons of foods for crowds from corn dogs to funnel cake. All the fairs make summers here special. You can go to the Saratoga County, Washington County and Schaghticoke fairs between now and Labor Day.

A teens enjoys the rides but also like to try to win prizes along the midway with a show of prowess at games testing their skills. Showing off for their friends seems to the the order of the evening fair goers.

All in all there is so much for all to day from all the various fun games, a variety of foods, exhilarating rides, more food, farm animals and a variety of interesting attractions, the spirit of past Saratoga County Fairs can be felt in the air.

The fair exhibits the enormous agricultural influence of the region, showing the tourist, the local and the visitor who make their way here from nearby a great way to find out more about what local farmers have to offer.

The fair also gives youngsters an opportunity to show off their hard work on local farms and they will hopefully take home a couple blue ribbons won by showing their farm animals and locally grown produce.

Saratoga County's top industry is not tourism or industry but agriculture. And, this wonderful and traditional fair shows off the best Saratoga County has to offer.

And, one nice gesture by all would be to pay a special visit to the concession stands. That is where you will find Dick Rowland, town of Greenfield Supervisor, who has had a life-long love affair with the Saratoga County Fairgrounds. Rowland was the event's full-time general manager until 2009. He certainly has earned a lot of kudos for making the fair a wonderful place for all to create their own traditions and memories. Rowland, although now no longer in charge, but he now volunteers each year at the concession stands. Be sure to stop by and say "hello" to Dick. Also, say "thank you" for his many years of service! That type of gesture is what makes Saratoga County so special, my friends.

The fair opens daily at 9 a.m. runs until midnight Tuesday through Sunday.

The cost: general admission is $10.

Children less than 52 inches tall are admitted free.

For more information or any questions go to: www.saratogacountyfair.org.

See you at the fair, Saratoga!

LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT: SARATOGA RACE COURSE

JULY 15TH, 2012

Cheering Section

Love at First Sight at Saratoga

By JEFF DEITZ

NEW YORK TIMES

Published: July 15, 2012

Although I grew up in Baltimore with Pimlico Race Course as my home track, I did not fall in love with horse racing until the first time I saw Saratoga on Wednesday, Aug. 16, 1972.

That day, my medical school buddy Eddie and I were driving the Northway to Quebec. We had two weeks before classes resumed, and we wanted to meet French Canadian women, but just past the bridge over the Barge Canal north of Albany I saw a sign: "Saratoga Springs, 25 miles."

Whoa. Saratoga Race Course, the queen of New York racing. We were so close, no way was I was going to miss checking her out.

I remembered that 2-year-olds from renowned Kentucky horse farms often made their debuts at Saratoga, which opens a 40-day meet Friday. The closest I had ever gotten to such royalty was Alfred Vanderbilt's Sagamore Farm, north of Baltimore, where I used to drive when I was a teenager. Sagamore had a training track and a little starting gate. I always slowed down to sneak a longing glance but never had the courage to stop or turn into the driveway lest some guard with a shotgun run me off.

I had never been to a New York racetrack, although New York horses shipped in frequently to contest Pimlico's $25,000 Saturday sprint stakes, which they usually won. "Sharp New York invader, must respect," The Daily Racing Form would say.

I made Eddie take the first exit for Saratoga Springs, then followed my nose past the state park onto Lincoln Avenue and paid to park on somebody's lawn.

The track was gorgeous, everything so green. No concrete walls or cracked pavement like Pimlico's. Saratoga wore a garland of red, white and pink petunias, her perfume a mélange of hay, cigarettes and manure. Through the fence I could see the horses being readied for the next race.

Admission was $2. I paid for Eddie.

It was 3:25 p.m., and the Minutes to Post sign blinked 20. I rummaged desperately through the trash barrels and found a Racing Form. The fifth race was a six-furlong allowance sprint for fillies and mares, with a $12,000 purse and jockeys like Laffit Pincay Jr. and Jacinto Vasquez. This Saratoga is one classy dame, I thought.

I bet $5 to win and $5 to place on the 2-1 favorite, Daddy's Little Girl, then dragged Eddie through the crowd. Outside the grandstand near the eighth pole, I got my first real look at Saratoga, her dark chocolate, exquisitely manicured outer coat framing two luscious turf courses, puffy clouds wafting across an azure sky above the backstretch and the infield pond. But my horse tired after a speed duel and finished last. The blue tickets looked like supermarket receipts when I ripped them up.

Undaunted, I handicapped the sixth race, awe-struck by the purse and the class. That will make it easier to pick the winner, I thought.

Not really. My 5-2 choice, Sailly le Sec, opened a clear lead, then faded in the stretch like a flirt who slipped away without leaving her phone number.

Saratoga had earned its reputation as the Graveyard of Favorites, and I realized it was just as easy to lose money on expensive horses as on cheap ones. Now I wasn't so sure about this first date. Although she was comely, I didn't get the sense that Saratoga liked me.

To shake off the pain, I grabbed a beer and meandered toward the paddock, leaning over the white fence opposite the walking ring. Inside, owners, trainers and jockeys huddled, and I wondered if the stout man wearing pink pants was Alfred Vanderbilt himself. The seventh race was the $25,000-added Sanford Stakes for 2-year-olds. Imagine that: a midweek stakes race.

There I was, 23, watching the beautiful ladies and their beaus talking with their trainers. I was dreaming of being on the owners' side of the fence, watching my horses, schooled to break from the starting gate, not worrying about being chased off because I didn't belong.

That's when I saw No. 5 being saddled, tossing his head while the groom put on the blue-and-white checkered hood. Although he was listed as chestnut, in the late-afternoon sun, the horse was more red than brown.

Saddling at Pimlico took place inside. At Saratoga, I could practically reach out and touch the horse; he was calm and composed, his coat gleaming. He returned my gaze, then snorted contemptuously at the horses nearby, his eyes saying: "Don't worry, pal. This won't take long."

The No. 5 horse was Secretariat, at 8-to-5 odds. In line at the outdoor betting pavilion, I was thinking about backing the 3-5 favorite, Linda's Chief. But I put my last $20 on No. 5 to win.

Secretariat was all business as he jogged past the grandstand.

Off they went at 4:55 p.m. Secretariat broke dead last.

"Not this again," I said.

The last I saw going into the far turn, Secretariat had gained ground, but as the horses straightened for home and the crowd buzzed, he was hemmed in behind three others.

The chart says, "Secretariat drove between horses to reach the front and drew off being ridden out." Drove was an understatement. Secretariat exploded past Linda's Chief as if he were standing still. Greatness is like love. I felt it.

My $20 returned $50. Although I thought about holding on to the ticket, I needed the cash.

The thrill of witnessing champions ascending is one of Saratoga's lures. With a first kiss like that, I was hooked for life.

CAMP TLC FUNDRAISER AT CRUSH AND CASK MONDAY JULY 16th, 2012
5 - 7 pm

CAMP TLC IS REAL

Camp TLC, Together Living a Challenge, is a not-for-profit organization, and is returning to Saratoga Springs, New York. Youngsters and families who live on the backstretch at the Saratoga Race Course will participate August 1st - 4th, 2012. On that first Monday in August Camp TLC will visit for five days of camping at Pine Grove Camp in Saratoga Springs.

CAMP TLC FUNDRAISER AT CRUSH AND CASK MONDAY JULY 16th, 2012H

5 - 7 pm Crush and Cask - 170 South Broadway, Saratoga Springs, New York

On Monday July 16th from 5 to 7 pm, Camp TLC will be honored by Crush and Cask with an evening wine tasting at 170 S Broadway Saratoga Springs all to show how your support will serve over 300 children this summer. Caroline Baumis, Camp TLC Executive Director, will fully explain the needs, how the camp operates, how it travels to several cities nationwide. Saratoga Springs remains one of the favorite visits due to the outstanding support the children receive from the entire community.

Patricia and Jeff Novo, Crush and Cask owners, will host the wine tasting at the store. For a $15.00 donation, you can sample some of Patricia's selected wines as well as her special martini named after Camp TLC. All purchases at Crush and Cask will be 10% off that evening.

All monies raised will go to support the Camp TLC Carnival Day. The funds raised Monday July 16th will pay for a dunk tank, a bouncy house and other fun activities for the campers to enjoy.

Another highlight of the evening will be jeweler Lisa Burke who will spotlight some of her latest designs by Stella and Dot. A portion of the sales of the jewelry will go to Camp TLC.

After the tasting, head to Chianti's Restaurant at 18 Division Street, where, throughout the evening, 30% of your food and drinks will benefit Camp TLC. This offer is good for take out or dining in during the entire evening. Please mention in order for your donation to go to Camp TLC. Chianti's will also support Camp TLC by offering $1.00 for every Facebook "Check In". That also goes for every Facebook friend who "Likes" the Chianti page. This amazing offer gift from Chianti's continues the rest of month of July.

CAMPERS ENJOY CAMP TLC

Camp TLC offers children the chance to experience the joys of summer camp. Camp TLC, founded in 2000, through the Joey DiPaolo AIDS Foundation, as a way to provide camping to youth living with AIDS/HIV. Camp TLC will offer camp to backstretch families residing on the campground near the historic race course throughout the Saratoga track meet. Activities will include a variety of performing art and sport classes, and will include Camp traditions such as the Amazing Race, and the popular Talent Show.

"We are positive that our families are going to be blessed by Camp TLC, the kids and families are already talking about it", says Nick Caras, representative of B.E.S.T, who works with the backstretch families year round. Now that the AIDS/HIV virus has became a manageable disease, the need for programs dealing solely with AIDS/HIV children no longer requires that type of help. In 2008, Camp TLC and the Joey DiPaolo AIDS Foundation went dormant. Recently, the Joey DiPaolo AIDS Foundation and Camp TLC teamed up with nonprofit professional Caroline Baumis and they decided to bring Camp TLC to children living under stressful conditions.

GREAT SUPPORT

Camp TLC is very fortunate to have the support of many local businesses in the Saratoga area. These businesses help raise money for the Saratoga session of Camp TLC. This year we will not only serve children of the backstretch, but those that are spending their summer residing in one of the local shelters (including the local DV shelter).

MAKING A DIFFERENCE, ONE CHILD AT A TIME

Camp TLC is an "on the move" camping program that delivers a week of camp to children living in hospitals, group homes, and shelters across the country. Starting in the summer of 2011, Camp TLC toured the country for 4 weeks and brought the camp directly to partnering organizations. Camp TLC travels with a team of program staff and a van filled with programming supplies. Camp TLC believes all children grow through a summer camp experience. The goal: bring hope to those children living in an isolated circumstance.

The on-site camp spends five days in each city and delivers themed filled activities similar to what they would experience at a residential for-profit camp. Dance, music, theatre, expressive art, and sports create a rich experience for each camper. Each program curriculum is developed based on the needs of the agency and is developed to inspire each child to take positive risks and discover skills they might not know they have. At Camp TLC, we believe when children have hope through quality programming; they renew their self esteem. The Camp TLC experience changes lives.

BUILDING PARTNERSHIPS

Camp TLC partners with each organization's coordinator and develops unique programs tailored to each camping experience. Camp TLC conducts site visits during the winter and complete a venue assessment. The goal of Camp TLC is to create quality programming that otherwise would not be available. Camp TLC grows each year with each partnering sites and updates programs. Prior to camp each organization completes a program "wish list" to set goals for the ultimate week of camp. After Camp TLC's departure, we leave behind programming supplies so the fun can continue even after we leave.

WORK TO BE DONE

As in any not-for-profit, the struggle to find support is ongoing. There is work to be done. The effort is worth it. Thousands of children enjoy camp each summer, but thousands of children cannot due to their personal circumstances. That is, unless you give. To create change, Camp TLC relies on new streams of funding annually. Camp TLC currently partners in 3 states: New York, California, and Massachusetts. The camp depends on the help of volunteers, private and in kind donations for support. The cost: $15,000 per each of the 75 campers. Your supports needed. Camp TLC hopes you make a difference. The children need hope; you have the power to grant that wish. Camp TLC provides the tools to help campers to live a life with a bright future.

WOMEN DOMINATE SOCIAL MEDIA AND BLOGOSPHERE

Women Be Dominatin' Social Media

by Erik Sass, Jul 6, 2012, 2:58 PM

THE SOCIAL GRAF - CONNECTING THROUGH THE CHAOS

Another week, and another piece of gender-related news sends me back to the bottomless well of Sinbad headlines.

It turns out women are indeed more social than men, or at least use social media more often, according to a roundup of recent research published by Digital Flash NYC.

Overall women make up 56% of the U.S. social media population, or roughly 81 million women.

Women dominate both Facebook and Twitter, making up 58% and 64% of their memberships, respectively.

Women use social media more frequently, with 18% of women updating their Facebook status on a daily basis, compared to 11% of men.

On a monthly basis, women make 99 million more visits to social media sites than men; they're also more likely to comment on posts and photos several times a day.

No surprise, Pinterest skews even more female, with women making up 82% of its user base.

Women also lead the way in time-wasting, er, casual gaming, making up 60% of the audience for Zynga games.

But there are some male-dominated social networks out there too: for example, 63% of LinkedIn users are men, while Google+ and Reddit also skew male (71% and 84%, respectively).

Last week I (Erik Sass) wrote about a separate survey of 1,453 U.S. online adults conducted by Burst Media in May 2012, which found that women are more likely than men to follow brands on social media, especially if they have kids.

Overall 58.1% of online moms follow brands online, compared to 49.1% of all respondents, and 31.7% of online moms said they were likely to follow a brand promoted in an online ad, compared to 25.4% of all respondents.

Echoing the Flash Digital NYC results:

49% of female respondents in the Burst survey said they visit social media sites a few times per day or more, including 58.6% of moms and 42.7% of women without children, compared with just 34% of men.

Asked their reasons for following brands on social media:

43.5% of moms said they do so to "keep up with the latest content", compared to 44.4% of women without kids and 30.7% of men;

23% of moms said they do so to "see what others are saying about the content", compared to 25.4% of women without kids and 21.7% of men;

29.3% of moms said they do so to interact with the sites' authors and contributors, compared to 16.5% of women without kids and 19.2% of men;

41.9% of moms said they do so to "share content with family and friends," compared to 40.9% of women without kids and 26.3% of men;

and 33.3% of moms said they do so to "share my opinions and comment," compared to 26.7% of women without kids and 29% of men.

Interestingly, women who are not moms, are more likely to cite special offers, coupons, and savings as a reason to follow brands on social media, at 46.7%, compared to 40.1% of moms and 19.4% of men.

Great breakdown of numbers by Erik Sass and THE SOCIAL GRAF

Now, what do you think? Read this a couple times and then comment.

Send me your thoughts. I think this is fascinating. Don't you?

Is there a gender divide developing? Do women rule social media and the blogosphere?

Or, will men develop more social media interest over time?

What social media do you use the most? Or not at all.

Let's conduct our own social experiment and find out.

When you respond, please tell me your gender, age and if you are attached, unattached, with children, without children, basically your "status" so we can figure out how Saratoga uses social media.

This will be fun!

Tell me how YOU use social media, Saratoga!

Get away. Become more productive.

I am so very glad to be back writing A LITTLE ABOUT A LOT.

I missed writing this blog everyday but vacation time is essential to a healthy life.

I regenerated my battery.

A change of scenery for a period of time makes you more productive.

I am raring to go. I enjoy writing for a living so now that I'm back at my computer I will get back into it. Now that I am well-rested and my thoughts have become clearer, more focused; the process is so much more enjoyable.

Even if you cannot afford a fancy trip, simply enjoy your surroundings in a way you don't usually see them.

I have spent the past two weeks on vacation, and the change of scenery lifted my creativity, my thinking and my productivity. I spent days hiking, visiting new places and simply, thinking.

My family feels the same way. Everyone feels refreshed.

You can do the same. Take a breath. Take a break. Take in the sights.

Because we all deal with our work differently, figure out your best way to relax.

My free time is essential to the process. The best way to stay focused and organized is to align along with the way you work and live.

What makes sense for you?

Do you:

Go for a jog? Take daily bike rides? Rock climb? Horse back ride? Extreme paragliding? Do you enjoy water sports? Longboarding? Rowing? Rollerblading? Do you shoot videos or photography? Do you enjoy animals? Read? Write? What works for you?

Share an experience with a person you care about and like to be with, without any hassles or stress. Avoid conversations about work during that period of relaxation. Your stresses and your life need a break.

What makes you smile?

Exercise daily. Get outdoors. Smell that air. Move that body. Get going.

Find a secret spot that allows you to simply take it all in for at least an hour a day.

Sleep, sleep, sleep. That is critical for everyone. Rest. Relax. Clear your mind by getting tons of rest.

Vacation time equals greater productivity when you return to the real world... Saratoga!
