When the horses are running, Saratoga Springs, N.Y. is a newspaper town. As the fans roll into America’s most popular thoroughbred track, they run a gauntlet of vendors hawking competing broadsheets from Albany, Schenectady, Troy, Saratoga Springs, the New York City tabloids, tip sheets such as “Clocker Lawton” and “The Wizard” as well as Daily Racing Form and the track’s own Post Parade. But a standout in this crowded newspaper field is the upwards of 40-page Saratoga Special, a daily digest of the Saratoga thoroughbred season. Launched in 2001, The Special provides an insider’s view of the action and intrigue at the country’s most historic and significant racetrack, through the eyes of a pair of Irish American track rats who grew-up around the races, Joe and Sean Clancy.
