Travers day picks

Race 5. $30.50 exacta; $108.

Race 6 nothing

Race 7 & 8. Scratches

Travers day picks......
This is not a good card today. Lots of maiden races to show off horses and breeding the wealthy that are in town....

Been to many Travers Day races at the Spa... This is the oldest grade 1 race in the history of horse racing. May not be as prestigious as Kentucky Derby with the every day person, but among the blue bloods it is the race of a life time. Top jockeys perform on days like this.

Race 3. Maiden turf... Pass

Race 6 maiden race. Pass.

Race 7. Box. 9-2-11 9 to win

Race 8 box 1-7-11

Race 9. Box 6-4-2. 6 win

Travers Stakes

I try to find horses that have won on this track before especially this season... I look for hot trainers as well. No Pletcher horse in this race which is bizarre for such a big race...

I like Neck n Neck. Caught a sloppy track last out and the speed track this has been over the past weeks will suit him well. I like Street Life as well.
Long shot that is so intersting to me is the 1 horse in Spieghtscity. I think this horse needed a race and this young jockey has been no slouch this season. Use him is exotics.

Good luck if you choose to follow.
