2015 Travers Stakes Live TV, Online Preview

The 2015 Travers Stakes live TV and online coverage is set to take place Saturday, August 29 from Saratoga Race Track in New York. The action is going to be great and the fever pitch at an all-time high when Triple Crown winner American Pharoah makes his way to the turf. All of the action for this race can be seen on NBC nationally from coast to coast and online via NBC Sports Extra.

This horse is like a rockstar! American Pharoah has taken the racing world by storm and his trainer Bob Baffert are on some roll right now as they look to make horse racing history once again in New York.

American Pharoah has not only won 8 races in a row, he has made it look easy. If the three year-old can win Saturday at Saratoga and at the Breeders Cup in October, we will be mentioning him with all-time great to ever hit the track.

If there is a downfall to all the greatness, hype and hoopla  that American Pharoah gets every time he lines up in the starting gate, it is simply this – you can’t make any money betting him. Well, unless you have Donald Trump type money.

American Pharoah once again is listed as  the overwhelming favorite 1-9 or 2-5 depending on what track you may play at.
