At approximately 6:15 pm, on Saturday, our selection in the Runhappy Travers Stakes, Race 11 at Saratoga race course, is #3 Uncle Chuck to WIN.

When Bob Baffert brought horses to the Travers in 2016 and 2017, he caught people by surprise.  West Coast (2017) went off at odds of better than 6-1 while Arrogate was almost 12-1 and both scored front-running, gate-to-wire victories.  He'll be looking to do the same this year with the speedy Uncle Chuck, but this time it won't be much of surprise if he pulls it off.  Sure, the betting and sentimental favorite will be Belmont winner Tiz the Law for his NY-based connections, but with all of the buzz surrounding Baffert's son of Uncle Mo, few will be shocked if Uncle Chuck spoils the Big Apple party as the clear second choice.  With only eight runners in this year's edition, Uncle Chuck figures to control the early pace, and the only question is whether he can get the 10 furlong distance and keep the likes of Tiz the Law, Country Grammer, and Max Player from catching him in the stretch.  We think he can, and it will certainly make the Kentucky Derby picture quite a bit more interesting if Uncle Chuck and Tiz the Law get engaged in a stretch battle at the Spa.  Saratoga is known as the Graveyard of Champions (just ask Baffert about American Pharoah in 2015) and we may very well see another example of that on Saturday.  Talented rider Luis Saez gets the call aboard Uncle Chuck, and the morning line odds are 5-2.  Play #3 Uncle Chuck to win the Runhappy Travers Stakes, Race 11 at Saratoga.
