By: BloodHorse Staff
Belmont Stakes Presented by NYRA Bets (G1) winner Tapwrit, who has been cooling his heels since his classic triumph, was installed as the 7-2 morning-line favorite in the field of a dozen sophomores entered for an exceptionally deep edition the $1.25 million Travers Stakes Presented by NYRA Bets (G1) at Saratoga Race Course Aug. 26.
With parity the name of the game for the 3-year-old males this season, Tapwrit is one of a fistful of contenders who could emerge this Saturday with a long-awaited grasp on divisional leadership. The Todd Pletcher-trained son of Tapit is set to break from post 4 and will be joined in the gate for the 1 1/4-mile test by stablemate and Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (G1) winner Always Dreaming, and by Preakness Stakes (G1) victor Cloud Computing.
