The 150th running of the Grade 1, $1.25 million Runhappy Travers will be the centerpiece of a supercharged Travers Day. Joining the Mid-Summer Derby for 3-year-olds will be five other Grade 1 stakes: the $850,000 Sword Dancer Invitational at 1 ½ miles on the turf, the $500,000 Ketel One Ballerina for filly and mare sprinters, the $600,000 Forego at seven furlongs, the $500,000 H. Allen Jerkens Memorial presented by Runhappy for 3-year-olds at seven furlongs, and the $700,000 Personal Ensign presented by Lia Infiniti for fillies and mares going 1 1/8 miles. Rounding out the blockbuster card is the Grade 2, $400,000 Woodford Reserve Ballston Spa for turf fillies and mares.
