Travers Stakes

On Saturday, August 8, 2020, the small town of Saratoga Springs erupted as hometown hero Tiz the Law posted the second-fastest time in 30 years while taking the $1 million Runhappy Travers Stakes (G1).

The Travers is a traditional centerpiece of the historic Saratoga summer meet. Also known as the “Mid-Summer Derby,” the Travers is one of the oldest 3-year-old stakes races in the United States.

Race Recap/Replay

Trained by Barclay Tagg and ridden by Manny Franco, the 1/2 favorite Tiz the Law gave a monstrous effort while never being asked for his best, winnin the 1 1/4-mile fast dirt route by 5 1/2 lengths wrapped up.

The 3-year-old Constitution colt improved his record to 7-6-0-1 with $2,015,300 earned for Sackatoga Stable, a small ownership group of Saratoga natives who pooled together $110,000 to buy him.
