5 horses who could make the Travers Stakes special

If the right runners stay healthy, the Travers might live up to its other name as the Midsummer Derby. Five horses could make the Travers the race of the year, with Rich Strike, Early Voting and Epicenter the most important 3-year-olds who could enter because of their big Triple Crown efforts and overall popularity. Those three colts offer great storylines for the Travers. For one, Rich Strike is within range of […]
