NYRA Time Machine: 1994 Travers

The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) has added a new installment to its “Time Machine” video series, this time featuring Holy Bull’s victory in the 1994 Travers Stakes at Saratoga Race Course.

 

Holy Bull, later named the 1994 Horse of the Year, entered the Travers having easily won five of his previous six starts, with his sole defeat having come in the Kentucky Derby, which was contested at 1 ¼ miles, the same distance as the Travers.

 

In the video, Dave Grening of the Daily Racing Form and Michael Veitch of The Saratogian present their insights into Holy Bull’s performance in the Travers, in which he opened to a four-length lead along the backstretch and dug in resolutely in the final quarter mile to prevail by a neck over Concern, who later that year won the Breeders’ Cup Classic. Also, track announcer Tom Durkin reminisces about the race, in which he used the memorable line “But there is cause for Concern!” as the eventual runner-up launched his late rally.

The “NYRA Time Machine” series documents some of the most historic moments in New York racing history, and additional episodes will be unveiled during the upcoming weeks. Racing fans can find each “NYRA Time Machine” video on the NYRA YouTube channel or on the NYRA homepage, located at www.nyra.com.
