Recapping the Whitney and Starting Travers Week
It’s Travers week in Saratoga, even though because of the pandemic, it might not feel like it. Too bad because Tiz the Law is a big headline who will be favored to win the Mid-Summer Derby which is being run earlier than ever during this 40 day meet. Won’t be easy, not with trainer Bob Baffert sending Uncle Chuck to the starting gate on Saturday. Rooting interest is with Tiz, and if he runs his race should win, especially on his home track.
John Pricci is the WNYT Racing Analyst and it makes sense to start off our week of coverage getting his thoughts on the weekend that had a slew of upsets as Improbable won the Whitney Stakes. What are his early impressions of the Travers this weekend? Make sure to listen above and to Big Board Sports on Friday live from the track for our picks and Pricci's final thoughts at 1130.
