Happy Labor Day weekend to everyone. We've come to the last days of the summer meets at Del Mar and Saratoga, with the G1-Woodward (post time: 5:45pm Eastern; TV: NBC), G1-Forego and G1-Spinaway highlighting the Saratoga card, and the G2-Del Mar Derby, G2-Yellow Ribbon and G1-Del Mar Futurity the prime attraction out at Del Mar. Also this weekend, Arlington Park will run the G3-Washington Park Handicap (Saturday), Monmouth features juveniles in the G3-Sapling (Sunday), and Parx offers a pair of stakes races, including the G3-Turf Monster (Monday) at five panels on the grass.

Shackleford has scratched out of the Forego. He will reportedly point towards the Kelso Mile at Belmont for his next start.

Below are links to the scratches and changes (via Equibase), along with a running summary of this weekend's results.
