The Grade 1, $1.25 million Runhappy Travers Stakes, also known as the “Mid-summer Derby,” drew a terrific crowd Aug. 24 at Saratoga Race Course, where great racing and a beautiful day in the low 70s greeted racing fans. Always a highlight of the Saratoga meet and an important race in determining the hierarchy of 3-year-old male division, the Travers Stakes celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2019.

America’s Best Racing’s Penelope Miller was on hand to capture the smiles, the cheers, and the magic of the 150th Travers Stakes.
