Saratoga Snacks was second in the Empire Classic in 2012.

A horse racing enthusiast, Parcells purchased Saratoga Snacks’ one-year-old brother for $105,000 in August.

    Ha ha, he broke even on the horse & made $45K extra, which MIGHT pay his stabling/trainer/vet bills for the year, MAYBE…

    Good for Bill, he’s a fine man.
