The Ultimate Travers Stakes Roundtable

August 27, 2021

It is not often you get three more savvy and passionate players together for a round table on a race like the Travers, the midsummer Derby. Past the Wire’s Geo Sette, Michael Vale and Jonathan Stettin take a deep dive look into the 2021 Travers Stakes at legendary Saratoga Race Course on this exciting episode of Past the Wire TV and also on our Gate to Wire podcast.

The talented trio go over each horse in the race and identify who they think are pretenders and contenders. They circle back with their top choices and their strategies on playing the race.

Here is the field for the historic Travers at Saratoga:

1- Midnight Bourbon, Ricardo Santana Jr.

2- Essential Quality, Luis Saez

3- Keepmeinmind, Joel Rosario

4- Dynamic One, Irad Ortiz Jr.

5- Miles D, Flavian Prat

6- Masqueparade, Miguel Mena

7- King Fury, Jose Ortiz

Led by the two year old champion and Belmont Stakes winner Essential Quality, who comes in off a hard earned victory in the Jim Dandy Stakes, the Travers drew a field of seven talented three-year olds. It will be interesting to see the analysis of this group of students of the game and where they ultimately land.

Thank you for tuning into this exciting episode of Past the Wire TV and the ultimate Travers Stakes roundtable or listening to our Gate to Wire podcast!
