  • West Coast rolls home to win the Travers Stakes

    West Coast is Best in Travers Stakes

  • Tapwrit is the morning-line favorite for the Travers Stakes at Saratoga Race Course

    Contentious Travers Stakes on Tap

  • Trainer Mike Johnson moves to Churchill when the Oaklawn Park meet is over in April

    Horseman Mike Johnson Knows a Good One in McCraken

    Since his high-water mark as a trainer, when Drogue scored a record-setting nine-length victory in the $100,000 Fifth Season Stakes for older horses in 2014, at Oaklawn Park, Mike Johnson has won only three races. But he's ridden some of the best.

  • Carl Nafzger with former assistant Ian Wilkes

    Wilkes Continues to Do Nafzger Proud

    As he took in Ian Wilkes' cool demeanor less than a week out from the first leg of the Triple Crown, it was hard to find anyone enjoying the ascent of multiple graded stakes winner McCraken more than Carl Nafzger himself.
