WHAT'S IN A NAME? New York-based Wandering Dago food truck co-Owner Brandon Snooks said that his truck, which had a "contract to operate at Saratoga Race Course this season, was told to leave the track after opening day on Friday because an unnamed state official found the name offensive." Co-Owner Andrea Loguidice said that she and Snooks "were told Saturday to remove the truck from the property or it would be towed." Loguidice said that "no concerns over the name were raised during six months of negotiations with the New York Racing Association, which manages the track, and Centerplate, which supervises food service there" (TIMESUNION.com, 7/21).
