Mid-Summer Derby

When Saratoga proceeds with racing on Wednesday (Tuesday is dark) it will be the start of a great week of racing.  Culminating, of course, on Saturday, which features seven Graded Stakes races with total purses of four million dollars.  The grandest of which is the $1.25 million dollar Travers Stakes– often referred to as The Mid-Summer Derby.  Here is an early look at the probable starters for that race:

GOOD MAGIC

WONDER GADOT

CATHOLIC BOY

MENDELSSOHN

GRONKOWSKI

BRAVAZO

TENFOLD

KING ZACHARY

AXELROD

TRIGGER WARNING

VINO ROSSO

MEISTERMIND

SEAHENGE

Again, this is a list of horses that are likely to be entered.  Some may drop out due to injuries or ailments.  Regardless, it appears it will be a large, talented field with plenty of Value to be had.  Daily Racing Blog will take a closer look at the field for The Travers Stakes later in the week once post positions are drawn and assigned.

Tomorrow DRB will resume with race selections for Wednesday’s card.  So stop on back.
