148th Travers Stakes Saratoga Springs

148th Travers Stakes In Saratoga Springs

Grade 1, $1,250,000 Travers Stakes at Saratoga Race Course ran on August 26, 2017. Dating back to 1864, this one-and-a-quarter-mile derby for three year olds is the oldest major thoroughbred race in America.

I don’t know if she’s good enough to get done what she’s doing right now. I know she’s just in super-good form right now,” said trainer Darrin Miller. “She feels very good and has had no issues. She seems like a really happy mare right now. She’s very game, we know that much.”

“At Saratoga, I really wasn’t sure how much the ground played up there for us that day, even though she ran a big race and we were really confident in her going up there. She was doing everything right coming into this race. We knew she would do the best she could do. So we were very confident that she wasn’t going to back out of anything, regardless of where that ended us up in the race.”
