Since 1961, the colors of the Travers winning owner have graced the waters of Saratoga's infield pond. Today, for the first time, and in honor of the exhilarating dead heat between Golden Ticket and Alpha two canoes were launched.
Saratoga Race Course's 144th meet hit its unequivocal peak this weekend, with five Grade Ones, a Grade Two, a host of other great races, and quite simply a have-to-see-it finish in the crown jewel of summer racing - The Travers.
The historically short crescendo of the Saratoga Race Course Meet reaches its climax on Saturday, with the 143rd running of the Grade One, million dollar Travers. With the post positions now drawn, we take a brief look at each horse in the field.
As the northeast prepares for Hurricane Irene and all the rain water it'll bring, there was some irony at the 142nd Travers as Stay Thirsty wins the Mid-Summer Derby. Stay Thirsty was able to defeat Preakness winner Shackleford and Belmont winner Ruler on Ice.
Well folks, it's all come down to this. The Saratoga season has been a slow crescendo to this moment. The Jim Dandy, Whitney, Sword Dancer, Alabama - all mere preludes to this Saturday's running of the 142nd Travers Stakes.
