Travers weekend is upon us and we will have a full card of selections for Travers out later this evening. But first we have a full card of NY bred Stakes races to get to on this Friday. We got our best bet home yesterday at a nice score of 5/1 and we will look to keep the momentum going on this Friday. Good luck!

Every day throughout the meet, our horse racing insider Brian “The Closer” Mariano will give you his picks to help you win at the windows. The picks will be in order of preference and will include an early Pick 5 ticket, late pick 4 ticket and a best bet on the card! Follow him on twitter @Mariano_closer for his up to the minute selections and updates from Saratoga!
