06 Aug 2020 Travers Stakes – Horse Country Connections
The 2020 Runhappy Travers Stakes, a Grade 1 $1 million race held annually at Saratoga Racetrack, looks a little different this year. Notably: the race is being run three weeks earlier than usual, and is this year a part of the Road to the Kentucky Derby.
All eyes are on Tiz the Law, winner of the 2020 Belmont Stakes, and the field is full of Horse Country connections. Will you be tuning in Saturday?
