As part of the first Fasig-Tipton Festival of Racing, celebrity chef and horse owner Bobby Flay called Sundays eighth race at Saratoga Race Course, a $76,650 allowance optional claimer for New York-bred 3-year-olds and up going 1-1/8 miles on the main track. The race was won by longshot Freddy The Cap, who paid $67 to win.
When the horses came out of the gate, Flay exclaimed, And theyre smokin out of the gate! At the conclusion of the race, NYRA Track Announcer Tom Durkin said, Thank you, Bobby, and thank goodness you know how to cook a soufflé.
Flay, who first came to the races at Belmont Park as a boy in the company of his grandfather, has long been a fan of the sport, and has owned and raced horses in New York State for several years.
