Travers Stakes Picks and Preview

Travers Stakes Picks and Preview

Category : News - Fri 26/08/2016 - 02:28 EDT

In one of the best betting races of the year, the 147th running of the grade 1 Travers Stakes features a top-class field of 14 three year-old colts August 27 at Saratoga.

Carrying a purse of $1.25 million, the race features several marquee names from the Triple Crown series led by 3/1 morning line favorite Exaggerator. The son of Curlin finished second in the Kentucky Derby before winning the Preakness and Haskell Stakes. A win in the Travers would likely wrap up Three Year-Old Horse of the Year honors, but the colt will have his work cut out for him.

Kentucky Derby third-place finisher Gun Runner (10/1) will be an appealing price if he stays in the vicinity of his morning line odds and new shooter Connect (4/1) appears to be the “now” horse for trainer Chad Brown. Connect has won each of his last three starts and should prompt the pace form the opening bell. My Man Sam (20/1), Governor Malibu (12/1) and Destin (10/1) are all viable off-the-pace types if the early pace is as hot as expected.

Post time for the Travers is 5:44 PM Eastern.
