SARATOGA SPRINGS—Renowned equine artist Greg Montgomery, who has been producing artwork associated with Saratoga Race Course’s famed Travers Stakes since 1986, will unveil the 32nd edition of his annual Travers poster series at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame (191 Union Avenue) on Thursday, June 15 at 7 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public. Posters will be available for purchase and will be signed by Montgomery.
His poster series has been inspired by the rich history of the Travers Stakes, the first race contested on Saratoga Race Course’s opening day on Aug. 2, 1864. Named in honor of William R. Travers, the first president of the Saratoga Association, the inaugural Travers Stakes was won by future Hall of Fame member Kentucky, a horse Travers owned in partnership.
