Travers Day Recap + Saratoga Showcase Day Preview – Sunday, August 24
Trainer James Jerkens saddled the winner of the Travers but it wasn’t Wicked Strong. Longshot V.E Day ran down his aforementioned stablemate in the final jump with Tonalist checking in 3rd. Bayern set the pace and weakened to last after failing to handle ten panels.
Abaco edged past my value top Strathnaver late in the G2 Ballston Spa. Post time favorite Filimbi faded to last.
The Big Beast wore down Fast Anna in the G1 King’s Bishop. Coup de Grace finished a better than appears 3rd.
Artemis Agrotera ran away from My Miss Aurelia in the G1 Ballerina.
Sunday’s Pick 6 from Saratoga Race Course begins in the 6th race and includes a trio of state bred stakes races.
