What's New in Saratoga

Travers 2012 Logo Has Been Released


The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) released the new logo for the 143rd running of the Travers Stakes earlier today.


The new logo shows a silhouette of a horse and jockey on top of the signature Travers Canoe.

The canoe that sits in the pond in the Saratoga infield has been a part of the Travers since 1961. Every year the canoe is painted with the winners colors from the Travers Stakes.

The 143rd running of the famous $1 million race known as the "Midsummer Derby," will be held on August 25. But people don't have to wait until then to have a good time for the Travers. The Travers Festival will be running from Saturday, August 18 - Sunday, August 26, 2012.
