A Memorable Travers Day in Saratoga

  A warm thank-you to the 60 women and men who competed in Saratoga Living’s and NYRA’s Fashion Saturday contest on Travers Day.

Judges Liz Bishop, anchor of CBS-6 News, and Phil Bayly, anchor of NewsChannel 13 Today, had a tough time choosing the “Best Dressed” man and woman at the track. Winners were Natalie Guecia of Wantagh, Long Island, who wore a black hat and black-and-white dress, and Karl Smith of Fort Johnson, NY,...

Greg Montgomery

During the mid-1980s, while studying serigraphy at The College of Saint Rose in Albany, artist Greg Montgomery kept hearing people talk in reverential tones about some horse race called the Travers that was supposedly a big deal in fabled Saratoga each summer. “I really didn’t know much about horse racing at the time, and I certainly didn’t know anything about the Travers Stakes,” says Montgomery, a native of Washington, D.C. “I thought to myself that if this was such an important event, which I soon came to realize it was, that it should have some sort of signature piece of art to...
