Three days ago, D. Wayne Lukas celebrated his 82nd birthday. The party spilled into Monday when Lukas won the final Grade I race of the Saratoga season, the $350,000 Hopeful. Lukas, who had won the Hopeful seven times, got his eighth when Sporting Chance had a crazy trip late in the race and then survived a claim of foul before Lukas could take some bows in the late summer sunlight in the Saratoga winner's circle.
All summer long, the standings were close. And we aren't talking about the American League's East Division in baseball. This race was waged over 40 summer days, during the toughest thoroughbred horse meet in the world. And, when Saratoga Race Course closed the gates for the season following Labor Day's 10-race card, it was Todd Pletcher who stood tallest among the trainers.
Day 40: Scratches and changes at Saratoga SARATOGA SPRINGS — Here we are. The final day of the 40-day race meet at Saratoga is on top of us. After Sunday’s rotten weather, we have a nice, warm day to toast the end of the Spa. A 10-race card is planned with the feature race being the Grade I, $350,000 Hopeful for 2-year-olds.
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".
