Week 5-Travers Week

It was a splendid Travers week at the spa-featuring of course the 137th running of the Travers Stakes. A nice crowd of 40,000 plus was there on a day when the sun never came out.

Bernardini ran a awesome race, toying with the 6 horse field. Bluegrass Cat was toyed with by Bernardini as he left Bluegrass Cat and the rest of the field in the dust at the last turn.

He is my choice for 3 year old horse of the year.
Also impressive was Henny Hughes in the King Bishop.
On Friday , Discreet Cat, demolished the field in a 3 yr. old allowance race. Keep on eye on this horse.

Siro's, Broadway and Caroline Street were rocking at night, as they should be.
Already starting to count down till next years travers.
