Asmussen reflects on meaning of G1 Runhappy Travers triumph with Epicenter

NYRA Press Office

When Hall of Fame trainer Steve Asmussen started his first horse, Track Ambassador, at Ruidoso Downs in 1986, he did so with storied racetracks like Saratoga Race Course in the back of his mind as places of legend, hoping to one day make it to the Spa to leave his mark at the nation’s oldest sporting venue. 36 years later, his i​mpact at Saratoga has been monumental, adding to his long list of accomplishments with a 5 1/4-length triumph in Saturday’s 10-furlong Grade 1 Runhappy Travers by Epicenter to earn his first win in America’s oldest race for sophomores.
