$15k Travers Win Wager Contestant Announced

If Aaron Ditch of Saratoga Springs, N.Y, chooses the winning horse in the $1 million Travers Stakes on August 24, he will get to take home the full on-track winnings from a $15,000 wager, not having spent a penny of his own cash.

 

Ditch will have the opportunity to direct a $15,000 win wager, this Saturday, at Saratoga Race Course, using Marylou Whitney and John Hendrickson's money, as part of the Saratoga 150 celebration.

 

Excited about the prospect of betting $15,000 to win on the Travers, Ditch said, "I have good days and bad days at the track, but I am going into Saturday's activities with great anticipation. Win or lose, it will be a fun day, and an opportunity to be with Marylou and John".

 

Sesquicentennial Honorary Chairs Marylou Whitney and John Hendrickson underwrote the $75,000 Saratoga 150 promotion that offered five lucky fans this once-in-a lifetime opportunity. Two of the three contest winners have won the win wager - Adam McNeill of Saratoga Springs who left the track with $21,000 and Deborah White of Saratoga Springs who won $22,500. McNeill chose Wise Dan in the Fourstardave, and White picked Princess of Sylmar to win the Alabama.

 

The presentation of the $15,000 in cash and the wager for the Travers will take place in the winner's circle after the ninth race on Saturday.

 

The final presentation and wager will be held on August 31 for the $750,000 Woodward Stakes. Registration for the $15,000 fan-wager contest is now closed.

                         

The contest winner, and a guest, receive VIP Clubhouse amenities including admission, luncheon and programs from the New York Racing Association that operates Saratoga, Belmont and Aqueduct Thoroughbred tracks.
