Summer has never been too bad a time for Winter Memories, especially in Saratoga.The 4-year-old filly, which received her start in Camden at Kip Elser’s Kirkwood Stables, came roaring off the second turn and rolled to a 1 ½ length win in Saturday’s $600,000 Diana Stakes (Gr. I) at Saratoga.Trained by Jim Toner, who gave Javier Castellano a leg up, Winter Memories got the 1 1/8-mile trip on the turf in a time of 1:48.50.Dream Peace held on for second while Zagora was third. Tapitsfly, who led for the better part of the first mile, came in fourth.The gray/roan daughter of El Prado went off as the 8-5 favorite in the field of six older fillies and mares and won for the third time in four starts on the grass at The Spa.
