Banree takes on males in Tremont


ELMONT, N.Y. – The New York Racing Association has more than doubled the purse of the Tremont Stakes this year from $100,000 to $250,000. The result is a much better group than in 2014, when the race had to be delayed five days due to a lack of entries and eventually went with a four-horse field.
