The biggest day of the Saratoga meet is almost upon us: Travers Day.
Over at Picks and Ponderings, we dive into all the stakes on the card: six Grade I events and a Grade II. I handicap the Travers Stakes (GI), the Forego Stakes (GI), the Personal Ensign (GI), and the Ballston Spa (GII). Paul Mazur takes on the Sword Dancer (GI), the Ballerina (GI), and the King’s Bishop (GI).
(And, yes, I am taking a swing against American Pharoah in the Travers.)
In addition to the written previews, we also have a grid of all of our selections for all seven stakes. If you have any questions about my logic on the Sword Dancer, the Ballerina, or the King’s Bishop, feel free to ask me in the comments either here or there.
Good luck on Travers Day!
