Travers purse could be boosted to lure American Pharoah


New York’s horsemen would be willing to put up an additional $750,000 for the purse of the Travers Stakes this year to lure Triple Crown winner American Pharoah to Saratoga as long as the purse account is made whole through revenue on the day, the head of the New York Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association said at a board meeting of the New York Racing Association on Wednesday.
