Travers

It's Travers weekend at Saratoga.

Saturday's 149th mid-summer derby for 3-year-olds has a purse of $1.25 million, but there are also five other Grade One stakes races on the spectacular racing card. 

NYRA Communications Director Pat McKenna says it pays to buy your grandstand tickets before Saturday. Gates will open Saturday at 7am, and there are 13 races on the card with a special early first race post time of 11:35am Saturday. 

The field is highlighted by Jim Dandy winner "Tenfold," "Good Magic," and "Wonder Gadot." She'll be the first filly to run the Travers since 1979, and were she to win, she'd be the first since 1915. 

You can hear the Travers on WGY and on your free iHeartRadio app. Coverage begins at 3pm Saturday.
