Travers Stakes 2016 video analysis featuring Exaggerator and American Freedom

The 2016 Travers from Saratoga is sure to be a classic renewal with a full gate of fourteen, minus the late defection of Majesto.

Santa Anita Derby, Preakness, and Haksell hero Exaggerator is the one to beat but all three of those aforementioned grade one victories were contested on a wet track and he got plenty of pace help each time.

Haskell runner-up American Freedom is back for more and a bit less pace pressure on a fast track might help him turn the tables on Exaggerator.

Belmont Stakes 1-2 finishers Creator and Destin are also back in action in a deep, competitive edition of the mid-summer Derby.
