As I'm sure you've heard, the "Queen of Saratoga" Marylou Whitney passed away at 93 last week. This Saturday is the $1 Million Whitney race at the Saratoga Race course. Marylou will be honored at the track on Saturday and fans are encouraged to wear Marylou's favorite color. Pink. On Friday she will be inducted into the National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame. That happens at 10:30 and it's free and open to the public. It also looks like Centennial Park in Saratoga will be renamed "Marylou Whitney Park" at some point in the near future.
