Saratoga Casino Hotel is sponsoring a contest to name the new filly out of Derue stables!
Have you always wanted to name a race horse? Now’s your chance! The winner will receive bragging rights in addition to a one night stay at the hotel and a complimentary dinner at Morton’s® The Steakhouse.
Sired by Flying Instructor and foaled by Stage It Right, the six-month-old filly is a chestnut with a sweet, white star in the middle of her forehead. If you want to see her before you make your submission, she is currently residing in the pasture next to the hotel, or you can view video footage of the promising young race horse on the contest website.
What to Know Before You Name
The six-month-old filly’s story is an interesting one. Derue claimed Stage It Right in 2015. When her performance on the track began to decline, Derue took her to the vet for a check up… where they discovered she was pregnant (much to everyone’s surprise!).
In a press release head of Derue Stables, Jordan Derue said, “Given the unique story of this horse, we’re very excited to see the names that come in from this contest.”
Entries are due by October 20 and a winner will be chosen by a panel of judges on October 25.
