Rumors are August 8 for the Travers.  Should be announced soon.

Jack Knowlton, head of Sackatoga Stable, suggested Saturday that Tiz the Law can thrive beyond the June 20 Belmont Stakes given the timing of this season’s other major races for 3-year-olds. That includes what he’s heard about when Saratoga’s Travers Stakes (G1) will run.

Speaking on the Horse Racing Radio Network’s Equine Forum, Knowlton said the Travers will “presumably” position three weeks before its traditional date, on Aug. 8, to create a one-month gap to the Sept. 5 Kentucky Derby. The Preakness Stakes is then scheduled for Oct. 3.

---And this - good!

   The New York Racing Association, which returned to action this week at Belmont Park, hasn’t yet released a Saratoga stakes schedule, which could include one or more races that become part of the points-paying Derby prep series. Reporting for VSiN, Ron Flatter confirmed on Thursday that the Mid-Summer Derby will measure its usual 1 1/4 miles.

Yes!  The 2020 TC with a nice prep race at Belmont on June 20th!

I was surprised that the Travers is not a Derby Prep race. Of course, what *are* the Triple Crown races this this year? Still the Derby, Preakness, and Belmont? (Or should I say, Belmont, Derby, and Preakness).
