Triple Crown-winning Billy Turner judged the show in 1977, the day after Seattle Slew won the Preakness.
A Racing Hall of Famer competed in the Yearling Show: Safely Kept was shown by her breeders, David and JoAnn Hayden, in 1987. The eventual Eclipse Award-winning champion sprinter, $2 million earner and Breeders’ Cup Sprint winner was inducted into the National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame in Saratoga in 2011. Amazingly, Safely Kept did not earn a ribbon the year she was shown. . . but she was one of 60 in her class!
