In case you haven’t noticed, there’s a new sheriff in town. His name is Gun Runner, and even though he’s come up empty in two races against Arrogate in his career, he’s the current frontrunner for Horse of the Year. Back in July, before Arrogate flopped as the 1-20 favorite in the San Diego Handicap at Del Mar, the son of Unbridled’s Song was an odds-on choice to win Horse of the Year, an award he narrowly lost last year to California Chrome after a late-season charge came up short.
Saratoga handled more wagering dollars this summer than Del Mar and drew more customers through the turnstiles, but it was a one-horse race when it came down to equine safety. While Saratoga saw 19 fatalities this summer, according to the New York State Gaming Commission, Del Mar had only six. And while we can all agree that even one is too many, it was a sharp improvement over last summer when Del Mar came under fire from animal rights groups because of 17 deaths.
With the successful Del Mar summer meet in the rear-view mirror, Southern California racing resumes Thursday after a brief two-day respite with the start of the Los Angeles County Fair meet at Los Alamitos. The 12-day meet, which concludes Sunday, Sept. 24, will include racing on a Thursday-Sunday basis. Post time each racing day is 2 p.m. There will be four stakes races run the next three weeks — the $75,000 Beverly J. Lewis for 3-year-old fillies and the $75,000 E.B.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
