Tip a Canoe and Irish Too

July 31, 2014

Dear Partners and Friends,

When you win the Travers (the biggest race of the year at Saratoga) they paint the canoe that floats in the pond in the color of your silks for the rest of this meet and next year's meet until the Travers is run again.

From the early RSVP's it seems quite a number of you are hopeful to see that happen!

Donegal very much wants to provide a room for each partner who wants to be here. This requires renting a number of houses because the hotels are sold out. Renting houses requires lead time and planning.

So...please, please, please let us know ASAP (Monday at the latest) if you will be joining us. And the dates you will be here, how many rooms you need, etc. Acquiring race tickets is also a huge task for the busiest weekend of the year.

Donegal will host a social event Saturday evening, August 23, following the races. We will rent the houses for checkout on Sunday the 24th.

Please call/email Alex or Hillary at and let us know if you plan to attend!
