SARATOGA RACE COURSE -- It is a big weekend at the Saratoga Race Course. Saturday is the running of the Jim Dandy and the Diana. Both races are viewed as the lead up to next month's Travers Stakes, the biggest race of the Saratoga meet.
This year's race will feature horses that ran in two of the big Triple Crown races, the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont. However, do not let the big names fool you, the competition is still pretty tough.
"Well the Jim Dandy, as you know, is the prep for the Travers. There's also the Hasko, but I think the Jim Dandy definitely favors horses pointing to the Travers because they have a race over the track, and it's always helpful in Saratoga. And it's an interesting addition this year, we have two horses from the Kentucky Derby," said Richard Migliore, NYRA Broadcast Analyst.
