Olympic marathon gold medalist Joan Benoit Samuelson joined nearly 6,500 runners Saturday in the road race that she created along the coastal roads where she trained in her native Cape Elizabeth, Maine.“Whenever you can celebrate in your hometown, that takes the cake,” said Samuelson, who won the Boston Marathon in 1979 and 1983 and took gold at the Los Angeles Games in the first Olympic marathon event open to women.Perfect Spirit was awarded the $1 million Hambletonian when first-place finisher What The Hill caused another horse to go off stride in the stretch and was disqualified in trotting’s biggest race.Gun Runner, who had already earned an automatic berth in the $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic in November at Del Mar, won the Whitney Stakes by 51/4 lengths as the 3-5 favorite at Saratoga in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., giving Hall of Fame trainer Steve Asmussen his first victory in the $1.2 million race.Philipp Kohlschreiber won his eighth career ATP tour title by defeating Joao Sousa of Portugal 6-3, 6-4 in the final of the Generali Open at Kitzbuehel, Austria.

- Forever Unbridled overtakes Songbird in final turn at Saratoga
By Larry Stumes - Saturday Aug 26, 2017
For most of the $621,000 Personal Ensign Stakes on Saturday at Saratoga, 2-5 favorite Songbird cruised on a comfortable lead that appeared destined to result in her 10th Grade 1 win and her 14th victory in 15 career starts. But Forever Unbridled, who lagged in last place until the final turn of the 11/8-mile race, closed resolutely on the far outside and beat Songbird by a neck in 1:49.16. It was just the second start of the year for 5-year-old mare Forever Unbridled and the third for 4-year-old filly Songbird, who had outfinished her by 1¼ lengths when they ran 2-3 in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff to end their 2016 campaigns.

- Hollendorfer’s Songbird seeks 10th Grade 1 win at Saratoga
By Larry Stumes - Friday Aug 25, 2017
Songbird was so dominant in the first 13 starts of her career that she won them all by at least 3¾ lengths en route to Eclipse Awards as the champion 2-year-old and 3-year-old filly in 2015-16. She even ran a great race in losing by a nose to four-time champion Beholder in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff that ended her 2016 campaign. Songbird has won both of her 2017 starts after a lengthy rest, but they came by just 1 length over seemingly overmatched opponents in the Ogden Phipps Stakes at Belmont Park and the Delaware Handicap at Delaware Park. “Some folks say she should be running away from horses, but that’s not a good thing to think in horse racing,” trainer Jerry Hollendorfer said.
