Anything Goes / Travers Stakes 2018 (Aug. 25)
« Last post by Hilda with Clicker on August 12, 2018, 08:49:25 am »
There is still a number of millionaire races this year! Next is Travers Stakes. It is nicknamed the "Mid-Summer Derby" and is the third-ranked race for American three-year-olds according to international classifications, behind only the Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes. First held in 1864, it was named for William R. Travers, the president of the old Saratoga Racing Association. His horse, Kentucky, won the first running of the Travers.

Past winners in real life:

  • 2015 - Keen Ice

  • 2017 - West Coast

Past Final Furlong winners:

  • 2019 - Ch. Don't Trip, Track: Fast    Time: 1:49.080    SF: 274. He is now inactive under Final Furlong ownership, but we have his half sister, out of amazing racehorse and broodmare, NCh. Trippi Flowers. Our filly, Fool For Flowers is now switched to steeplechase and doing well.
  • 2020 - Ch. Strike It Lucky, Track: Good    Time: 2:03.075    SF: 219. This year he won Dubai World Cup and Metropolitan Stakes.
  • 2021 - Ch. Ultimate Craving, Track: Fast    Time: 1:53.790    SF: 242. We currently own his dam, Ch. Opulent, which makes him a half brother to some of our foals! Opulent is a twin sister of NCh. Irish Gold.


Any plans? I may enter Ch. Crème Brûlée, although he's not really "stakes level" this year (mostly). But he likes the distance, and dirt. And his sire won the 2008 Travers Stakes...
