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.
With The Kentucky Derby just over a week away racing will start tomorrow for Opening Night 2018 at Churchill Downs. As is traditional for Downs After Dark, the evening will have a classy theme to "Dress to Impress". A great opportunity to test run your Derby attire as you watch the races.
