Earlier in the year, we experimented with the Venn diagram as being predictive with limited success. It is best to assume that it is only descriptive. The information is interesting enough to bring back for the older stakes at the Saratoga and Del Mar meets.

None of the entrants in the Lake George Stakes are each a course winner*, distance winner1, and surface winner2.
