It's a very exciting day in the Capital Region. This one's going to go down in history no matter how it turns out. It's theTRAVERS! I just had to write a little ditty about it. Apologies to Kenny Chesney for borrowing his song.
Well, in my typical fashion, I usually get interested in sporting events after they happen. I knew nothing about "Will Take Charge", but after seeing highlights of the race, I wanted to find out everything! What a finish! (video to follow)
Living in the Saratoga/Albany Area all of my life, I've often heard 'local' people comment that they really don't know what the Travers Stakes is all about. Sure we all know traffic will be backed up, it's the busiest day at the track, and downtown Saratoga will be bustling all week. But why is the race so special?
That's about as knowledgeable as I can be with horses. Sorry, but I just don't have the time for studying the history of every one of these beautiful creatures, but I still really like the atmosphere. Are you coming to the track?
It was a beautiful day for the 143rd Travers Stakes in Saratoga, New York. The oldest major thoroughbred race in America, at the nation's oldest sporting venue, once again brought huge crowds and lots of excitement.
The Travers Stakes is the highlight of the Saratoga Racing season! While many people will place their bets based on stats and picks from the professionals, some of us just go by the craziest or most creative names of the actual horse.
