Ahead of the Breeders’ Cup, there aren’t too many races bigger than the Travers Stakes at Saratoga. Nobody has ever won bigger in the race infamously known as “The Giant Killer.”
With Mike Smith aboard, Bob Baffert’s Arrogate went wire-to-wire to break a track record. The impressive 12-length victory demolished foes with Triple Crown experience: Gun Runner, Exaggerator, Destin and Creator.
