Saratoga Springs, NY. (August, 21 2013) — As we wind down the summer at Saratoga it must mean its time for the premier race of meet, the running of the 144th Travers Stakes. Saratoga Springs, Travers Stakes is the oldest thoroughbred horse race in America and features some of the best three year olds in the world, each and every-year and this years Travers is no exception. 

 

Some of the best horses in history have won the Travers Stakes and this Saturday. A strong field of nine 3-year-olds will try to put their names into the record books. The $1 Million Travers Stakes also know as the mid summer derby will be run over the main Saratoga dirt track at a distance of 1 1/4 miles, post time for Saturday's 144th Travers is set for 5:40 PM EST and will be televised on NBC Sport's, TVG and ESPN.

 

Haskell winner Verrazano will likely be the favorite in the 2013 Travers Stakes. Verrazano, with John Velazquez aboard, is the 2-1 choice leaving from the No. 3 gate, with stable mate Palace Malice next at 5-2 with Mike Smith riding. Derby winner Orb is the third choice at 4-1 with Joel Rosario aboard. The Nations top Todd Pletcher trains the top two choices, also entered are Golden Soul, Moreno, Romansh, Transparent, War Dancer and Will Take Charge.

Verrazano is coming off an impressive win in the Haskell at Monmouth Park on July 28. Palace Malice followed up his Belmont victory by taking the Jim Dandy at Saratoga on July 27. "It's a great field," Pletcher said, "and from a fan's perspective, it's one of the strongest Travers Stakes fields we've seen in a while. With the exception of (Preakness winner) Oxbow, all the major players are here."

Orb ran fourth in the Preakness and third in the Belmont, then spent most of the summer in training at Fabulous Fair Hill Training Center in Elkton, Md. "We've been tickled to death with what he's done since he got up here last week," said Orb's trainer, Shug McGaughey. "We just hope we can keep it going for the Travers Stakes up here at Beautiful Saratoga Race Course."

His dam, Palace Rumor, won the 2006 Audubon Oaks and is a half-sister to Maya's Storm and Jumpifyoudare. Palace Malice is her only stakes winner to date. Palace Malice broke his maiden at Belmont Park on August 4, 2012, the first of Curlin's offspring in the United States to win a race for.


Palace Malice began his three-year-old season at Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans. In the Risen Star Stakes on February 23, 2013, he finished a nose in front of Oxbow when taking third place behind Ive Struck A Nerve and Code West. At the same course five weeks later he started second favorite for the Louisiana Derby but finished seventh of the 14 runners behind Revolutionary. On April 13, Palace Malice contested the Blue Grass Stakes on the polytrack surface at Keeneland. He tracked the leaders before taking the lead 120 yards from the finish but was caught in the last strides and beaten a neck by Java's War.

Palace Malice was one of 19 colts to contest the 139th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in which he was ridden by the 47-year-old veteran Mike E. Smith and started at odds of 23/1. He took the lead from the start and set a very fast pace, the second fastest initial quarter- and half-miles in Derby history, a pace described as "suicidal", and was attributed to the decision to put blinkers on him for the first time, but was overtaken in the straight and dropped back through the field to finish in 12th place behind race winner Orb. On June 8, 2013, Palace Malice, ridden again by Smith, started at odds of 13/1 for the Belmont Stakes. Smith tracked across from a wide draw to position the colt just behind the leaders as Frac Daddy set a fast early pace. Oxbow went to the front at half way but the Preakness winner was overtaken by Palace Malice on the turn into the straight. Palace Malice drew clear in the last quarter mile to win by three and a quarter lengths from Oxbow, with Orb in third. Palace Malice prepped for the Travers Stakes with a run in the Jim Dandy Stakes at Saratoga Race Course on July 27. Starting as the favorite he took the lead in the straight and won by a length from the fast closing Will Take Charge.

Orb by Malibu MoonOrb (foaled February 24, 2010) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse. After being defeated in his first three starts, Orb won five consecutive races, culminating with a victory in the Kentucky Derby on May 4, 2013. Two weeks later, Orb's winning streak ended with a fourth place finish in the Preakness Stakes.

Orb began his three-year-old season by winning an allowance race at Gulfstream Park over nine furlongs on January 26. Four weeks later, on February 23, Orb was moved up in class to contest the Grade II Fountain of Youth Stakes at 1 1/16 miles at Gulfstream Park. Ridden by John R. Velazquez, he won the race by half a length, defeating the odds-on favorite Violence. On March 30, Orb started the 29/10 second favorite for the Grade I Florida Derby. He was settled in fifth place before moving up on the outside to take the lead inside the final furlong and won by 2 3/4 lengths from Itsmyluckyday.

On May 4, 2013, Orb, ridden by Joel Rosario, started favorite for the 139th Kentucky Derby. Rosario positioned the colt towards the rear of the nineteen runner field in the early stages as the outsider Palace Malice set a fast pace. From half distance, Orb began to make progress on the outside and turned into the straight just behind the leaders. Normandy Invasion took the lead from Palace Malice but Orb continued to make ground in the center of the sloppy track. The favorite took the lead one sixteenth of a mile from home and pulled away to win by 2 1/2 lengths from Golden Soul in a final time of 2:02:89. After the race McGaughey, who was winning the Kentucky Derby for the first time, said that "I've always dreamed of this day and it finally came... I'm thrilled for the people who put in so much time on this horse, and of course I'm thrilled for me. Orb started 3/5 favorite for the Preakness Stakes two weeks later after looking impressive in training. In the race however, he was never able to mount a challenge and finished fourth behind the upset winner Oxbow. At the Belmont Stakes on 8 June, Orb finished 3rd as the horse rallied from the back of the pack behind Palace Malice, who won, with Oxbow again taking 2nd.

Moreno by GhostZapper, Trainer Eric Guillot issued an upbeat bulletin when discussing the potential of Southern Equine Stable’s Moreno, the dominant winner of the Grade 2 Dwyer who then took on Belmont Stakes hero Palace Malice in the Grade 2 Jim Dandy right to the eight pole step for step finishing third.

“He’s probably the most talented 3-year-old in the country,” said Guillot. “If you watch the Dwyer, his ears are pricked the whole way. He was cooled out by the time we took the tongue tie off of him. That’s how good he is. He not even trying right now. If he ever decides to try, he’ll beat Palace Malice by a dozen lengths easy, pulling away from him. That’s how good he is.”

Those are strong words to describe a colt who needed 10 starts to break his maiden, but I did have this colt on my radar early as he out of GhostZapper one of my top upcoming sires, and if I were put on the spot and asked to name the best North American dirt runner of the 21st century, I’d have no hesitation in casting a vote for GhostZapper. In fact I’d go further and say that he was the best dirt runner since Holy Bull. But lets face it, Moreno is not the most talented 3-year-old in the country by any means but he is the true speed by far in this years 2013 Travers Stakes Field but what's so intriguing about Moreno is his unraced dam Danceinthesunlight out of A.P Indy. Moreno is breed to run Forever and that's the truth, he should have more stamina than any horse in here and since he's gotten "blinkers on" three starts back he's like a new gelding, (why it took so long for the blinkers, I have no idea.?) Broke his maiden by 6-1/2, jumps in the grade II Dwyer drawing off easy by 7 lengths then jumps into the Jim Dandy and takes the lead with Palace Malice right to his outside in his first start going two turns. If you look deep into his past performances he really hasn't run all that bad the started him on turf.?

Lay him off for five months probably gelded him at that time and he runs a solid second after a bumpy start , he's then pulled up and eased in his next, has a squeezed start after that one and back to a marathon on the grass.?

Moreno comes to New York' puts on blinkers and has run lights out with amazing push button type speed. He will be on the front-end and if Ortiz can get him cranking without having to go to the whip to early, he may be able to hand ride this guy wire to wire or at least hit the board at a nice value, he should have some surprise stamina.


Verrazano, Palace Malice, Orb Clash in the Travers Stakes

 

By Johnny Brennan - Racebook Racing Analyst


Although Preakness Stakes winner Oxbow is on the sidelines, with both Kentucky Derby winner Orb and Belmont Stakes winner Palace Malice signed on, the 144th running of the Grade 1, $1 million Travers Stakes appears to be living up to all the "mid-summer Derby" hype.

Seven others are likely to run in the race, led by Verrazano, who won the Grade 1 Haskell Invitational last month by nearly 10 lengths and who is a perfect six-for-six in his career on fast tracks. Although Orb could only manage a fourth place finish in the Preakness and a third place finish in the Belmont, a return to the top form shown this winter and spring when winning five races in a row would make him a major contender. Palace Malice also redeemed himself off a poor effort in the (Kentucky Derby with "blinkers-on" finishing 12th) then coming back winning the Belmont Stakes and Grade 2 Jim Dandy Stakes in succession with near track record times. Will Take Charge and Moreno, second and third, respectively, in the Jim Dandy, could both run competitively in their second races of the season at Saratoga Springs. Also with experience over the Saratoga surface are Romansh and Transparent, who finished second and first, respectively, last month in the Curlin Stakes, with Transparent disqualified and placed fifth for interference with a quarter of a mile to run in the race. War Dancer just won the Grade 2 Virginia Derby on turf and although his only try on the main track was a fourth place effort back in February he will attempt to transfer stakes winning form to this surface. Golden Soul rounds out the field. His biggest effort of the year was finishing second behind Orb in the Kentucky Derby, but with ninth and seventh place efforts coming into the Travers Stakes Today.

Transparent, one of two horses in the field owned by Godolphin Racing of Sheikh Mohammed, was very impressive last month winning the Curlin Stakes at Saratoga. Angling out for room to run with a quarter mile to go, Transparent accelerated freakishly to draw off by two lengths at the end. Unfortunately, the horse didn't have sufficient clearance and caused another horse to drop back and check sharply, resulting in a disqualification to fifth behind the affected horse. Just the same, Transparent showed in winning that mile and one-eighth race that the Travers Stakes distance of one mile and one quarter should not be a problem. In April Transparent won by nearly 11 lengths and earned a career best 117 RaceBook® Speed Figure, then after four months off earned a 112 figure in the Curlin. As such, I think Transparent can post the upset win in this year's Travers Stakes with logical improvement in his second start off the layoff.

Palace Malice has run poorly just once in his last four races and with that poor effort easily explainable, he has a big shot to win his third graded stakes in a row in the Travers. The one poor effort came in the Derby, in which blinkers were tried, which resulted in him trying to run off early and go crazy fast for the 1-1/4 distance of the derby before tiring badly late in the race. Redeeming himself with a victory in the Belmont Stakes with a RB-105 figure, Palace Malice improved again to win the Jim Dandy Stakes at Saratoga with a career best RB-115 figure. Having beaten five other Travers entrants in those two races and with more improving to do, Palace Malice certainly should be the horse to beat in this Travers Stakes.

Romansh, also owned by Godolphin and like his stable-mate Transparent, was coming back from a few months off in last month's Curlin Stakes. Although unaffected by the incident earlier in the race and although Transparent rolled by him rather easily in the stretch run, Romansh found himself the beneficiary of the disqualification and earned his first stakes win. Having earned a 96 figure before the layoff then a much stronger RB-110 figure in the Curlin, Romansh is another horse moving forward at the right time. Being a son of Bernardini out of a mare by 1994 Derby winner Go for Gin, Romansh should have no problem navigating the mile and one-quarter trip that is the Travers and could be a strong factor today.

Verrazano is undefeated on fast tracks, his only loss coming in the Derby on a sloppy track. Like the other main contenders in this year's Travers, Verrazano is on a pattern of improving  RaceBook® Speed Figures, having earned a career best RB-112 last month when winning the Haskell Invitational by nine and three-quarter lengths. Likely to be in second place in the early stages of the Travers behind pacesetter Moreno, Verrazano should inherit the lead in the stretch and if he continues to move forward as he matures a Travers victory would not be out of the question.

Will Take Charge closed well for second behind Palace Malice in the Jim Dandy, his first race without blinkers since his debut last summer. A much improved effort with a RB-114 , Will Take Charge may be in line for another big share and if making wagers such as the exacta or trifecta box's he likely must be considered.

I'm mentioning Orb here in my final paragraph with just his speed figure. Although he was my top choice to win the Derby, it doesn't appear he is as sharp or as fast as he was in the winter and spring. Orb earned a career best RB-105 figure in the Derby, but didn't run nearly as well in the Preakness (97) or Belmont (99). Still, with a recent best of 31 half-mile workout at Saratoga coming into the Travers, Orb certainly could be a contender if able to rebound to his best form, I just think he may need this race to get back to that form, passing today.

The rest of the Travers Stakes field, with their best representative RaceBook® Speed Figures are Golden Soul (112), Moreno (110) and War Dancer (106).

Forty Tales, winner of 3 top graded 3yo sprints in a row will look to make another spine-tingling late run from the back of the pack in this Saturday’s $500,000, GI Foxwoods King’s Bishop Stakes, at 7f, for 14, 3yo colt & geldings only over the Saratoga main!

Declan’s Warrior, who was also making those death-defying late finishing wins earlier this season came 2nd in the GII Woody Stevens 2 back then a 5th in the GII Amsterdam here last out in an off outing for this brilliant 3yo sprinter!

Salutos Amigos, and Mentor Cane, 3rd and 4th respectively in the GII Amsterdam last out have both shown good early speed here in their 2013 sprinting efforts and with a clean break, you should find them dueling for the early lead here on Saturday!

Capo Bastone, who was flying at the end of the GIII Derby Trial 2 back came up just a neck short of catching Forty Tales at the line, then ran a very off 7th in the GII Woody Stevens at Belmont last out and you might get a good price on him today!

Overanalyze , 3rd in the West Virginia Derby last out will go this 7f sprint distance for the first time since last year’s GII Hopeful as a 2yo. His PP’s show some front running ability but he’ll have to find that GI Arkansas Derby closing abilities once again to vie here!

Majestic Hussar , has plenty of front running speed as he ran a crazy 1:08.4 first 6f’s in the GII Fountain of Youth Stakes last winter before fading to 4th and then out of racing until an Alw win here in a first out off the layoff, clocking a 1:09.2 6f dust-up!

Central Banker and No Distinction came 1-2 respectively in the $100k Smirnoff Sorbet Quick Call Stakes here on July 25th, going 5 1/2 F’s on the turf but both are returning to the dirt once more here on Saturday!

So, 14 top 3yo boys are lining up for the best sprinting show of summer season here at Saratoga in the GI Foxwoods King’s Bishop Stakes to add some blazing speed action to this big GI Travers Stakes Day card this Saturday!

The Official Order of Finish

 

1) Will Take Charge - broke well and sat in fifth position most of the way around, he started gathering momentum at about the 5/16ths pole and kept working and kept working to eek out the win.

“I changed up a few things,” winning trainer D. Wayne Lukas said. “I took a chance on an up-and-coming rider. I thought my horse trained well, but these things (races) are so tough. At the three-eighths pole, I thought we’ll get a piece of it, but I didn’t know if we’d get up.”

“This horse was training good” winning jockey Luis Saez said. “Last time, when he finished second, I saw the replays and I knew how to ride him. I tried to ride him like he runs.”

Lukas said Will Take Charge, who went off at 9-1 and scored a 107 speed figure in the win, is “doing wonderful; really good. I’m very pleased with that. He had great energy this (Sunday) morning, out grazing and feeling good, very good.”

The $1 million Jockey Club Gold Cup against older horses on Sept. 28 at Belmont Park or The $1 million Pennsylvania Derby for 3-year-olds at Philadelphia’s Parx Racing on Sept. 21 are where the colt by Unbridled Song will be pointed next.

“One of them’s a Grade 1 and very prestigious. If you were to win the Jockey Club, you’d go damn sure to the head of the division,” Lukas said. “If you stay in your division, the million dollars is not necessarily bad, either. We’ll weigh all the things. You get an extra week if you go to the Jockey Club, so that’s also something.”

2) Moreno- absolutely strolled thru the early part of the race and ran his lungs out to get beat half of a nose in a very good performance.

“Brutal, huh? Last jump,” trainer Eric Guillot said. “He couldn’t have done any better—stay in the three-path, stay off the rail, make them come to you, don’t let them go inside you, don’t let them pinch you on the rail. The kid rode him just like I told him. He knows the horse and he rode him perfect; we got beat. He said the horse kind of waited on them that last part. What are you going to do?

Guillot said Moreno was “bright and doing well” Sunday morning but that his horse raced with a large abscess near his throat.

“That’s an abscess that started Monday,” said Guillot, “I think the worst day was yesterday. We started compressing it. We’re good to go now, but I thought I was going to have to scratch on Monday. We don’t know what caused it; I think an ingrown hair, maybe, or he jerked back on the chain. It got infected and went the wrong way. You don’t want to pack it and work on it too hard and too fast. Yesterday, we iced it. I gave him a lot of anti-inflammatories.”
 
About his horse’s race he said afterwards “Everyone thought I was talking trash, He just beat the Derby winner, the Haskell winner, and the Belmont winner, right?”

Guillot said he plans to leave Moreno at Saratoga to train up to the Pennsylvania Derby, then a possible start in the Breeders’ Cup Classic to follow that.

 

3) Orb- was a little closer to the early pace that I though he’d be as he laid fourth most of the way around. He unleashed a big move on the turn for home while skimming the rail but lost momentum at the eighth pole to finish third in a good effort considering it was his first  since the June 8 Belmont Stakes.

“I thought he ran a great race,” said trainer Shug McGaughey. “He came to the paddock the way I wanted him to, and I thought he had running on his mind. I thought Jose (Lezcano) rode him great. He was down on the inside the other two horses, and he couldn’t get by Moreno, really, after that slow pace. I’m disappointed we didn’t win, but I’m not disappointed in his effort one bit.”

Jose Lezcano, who was subbing aboard Orb for Joel Rosario, who fractured his foot the day before in a fall at Saratoga, said Orb responded well in his first race back off the brief freshener.

“I got a very good trip,” Lezcano said. “I got the position I wanted. The break was good, and he gave me his race. At the quarter pole, he accelerated, but the other horses kept going, too.”

“Now we’ve got a good, solid race under his belt, we’ve got all last winter and spring’s stuff behind us,” McGaughey added. “I think we can really move forward now. I’m going to look at the (Jockey Club) Gold Cup. That’s not to say the Pennsylvania Derby or the Indiana Derby (Oct. 5 at Indiana Downs) or something is completely out of the picture, but I think we want to go to the Gold Cup.”

 

4) Palace Malice- had even reason to throw in a complete clunker of a race on Saturday but he didn’t. The colt by Curlin “stumbled at the start” and was next to last (a position he is not used to) most of the way down the backside. He was then forced to go five wide on the turn for home which spelled curtains for him….I thought he did very admirable to get fourth.

“He broke really, really, really bad,” jockey Mike Smith said. “What am I going to do? I cannot go for the lead. All I could do is sit back there, creep up, creep up, creep up and see if I could get him there. I thought I still had it for a little bit there, but it was just too much to make up.”

“Mike said Palace Malice missed the break,” trainer Todd Pletcher said. “He slipped behind and dropped way back, not his characteristic spot. Mike thought he was much the best; the break killed him. It’s horse racing. It happens every day, every race, 14 times a day sometimes. We would have liked to have won it, but we’ve had a great meet and we’re not going to cry about it. We’ll regroup and try again.”

On Sunday Pletcher said Palace Malice come out of the Travers “in good order” and “have no firm plans. We’ll wait a few days and talk it over with (owner) Mr. (Cot) Campbell and the other connections before we make any decisions.”

5) Romanish- outran his almost 37-1 odds that’s for sure. He was among the early leaders and held well into the final furlong before tiring a bit. Overall, he didn’t run badly against the elite three year olds.

 

6) War Dancer- was last most of the way around passed a few tired horses late but was not a threat while being beaten seven lengths and (basically) outrun at almost 30-1 odds

We are equally looking forward to bringing racing fans a world-class event at one of the world’s greatest racing venues,” said Breeders’ Cup President and CEO Craig Fravel. “Southern California and the greater Los Angeles community are always exceptional hosts for fans and horsemen alike from the event’s launch in 1984 and, most recently, at the 2008 and 2009 World Championships.”

The 3-10 favorite in the field of eight 3-year-old fillies, Midnight Lucky was prominent from the start, pressing pacesetter Majestic River from second. Majestic River, ridden by John Velazquez for trainer Todd Pletcher, was clocked through a half-mile in :46.44 and six furlongs in 1:09.95 as Midnight Lucky forged a narrow advantage with Unusual Way and Canticle also moving into contention. But there was no catching Midnight Lucky, who took command without being asked by Bejarano coming out of the final turn. The stretch run was no contest as Midnight Lucky opened up by seven lengths in late-stretch and continued to jog home with a new Track Record Time.

This is fabulous & Real. Monmouth Park (NJ.) racetrack announcer Larry Collmus is a real pro no matter what the horses are named. This full clip shows the entire race, with the two horses battling it out around the track until they pull ahead in a funny battle for supremacy in an argument as old as The Honeymooners. In some more fun racing news a fuss unfolded in Britain over research by mad scientists at the University of Edinburgh that suggested spending lots of money on racehorse stud fees will not bring the rewards people might expect. The researcher suggested up to 90% of a horse's lifetime winnings can be attributed to how the horse is reared, trained and ridden. The researchers compared the stud fees, winnings and lifetime earnings of more than 4000 race horses used for horseracing and breeding since 1922. Dr Alastair Wilson put it this way: "The offspring of expensive stallions might tend to win more money, but not necessarily because the horse inherited the best genes.
