Chad Brown, a Mechanicville native currently has 30 wins under his belt, or um, should I say saddle? Now he's striving for a Travers win - could it happen this weekend at the Saratoga Race Course?

Gift Box, Connect Stabled and My Man Sam are Browns three colts entered into this weekends Travers Stakes.

Brown was interviewed by WTEN and said this about the upcoming weekend:

“I’ve always wanted to have a horse good enough to win in the Travers. I’ve always wanted to win the Travers, and now to have three horses that are good enough to make the field is exciting. It remains to be seen if any one of the three are good enough to actually win the Travers, but just to have three horses running in the Travers and all three of them stabled right next to each other is rewarding in itself,”

The 147th running of the Travers Stakes will take place on Saturday, August 27
