Travers emerging as the leading option for American Pharoah

According to media reports and owner Ahmed Zayat's twitter feed, the August 29 Travers (G1) at Saratoga is the leading option for American Pharoah's (Pioneerof the Nile) next start.

The sublime colt exits a thoroughly dominant victory in Sunday's Haskell Invitational (G1) and several options remain for his next engagement, but Zayat appeared to rule out the August 22 Pacific Classic (G1) and September 19 Pennsylvania Derby (G2) on Tuesday despite being adamant that the decision remains in the hands of trainer Bob Baffert.

NYRA officials announced last week that the Travers purse, scheduled to be $1.25 million, will be increased to $1.6 million if Triple Crown champion American Pharoah competes.

Demonstrative, Divine Fortune meet again in Smithwick

Demonstrative (Elusive Quality) and Divine Fortune (Royal Anthem), the past two Eclipse Award winners in the steeplechase division, will have their latest showdown in Thursday's $125,000 A.P. Smithwick Memorial (NSA-G1) at Saratoga over 2 1/16 miles.

The pair last met in May at Nashville, when Demonstrative captured the Iroquois (NSA-G1) while Divine Fortune weakened to fourth after setting the pace.

The flat feature on Thursday's card is the $100,000 Quick Call, a 5 1/2-furlong grass sprint for three-year-olds.

American Pharoah's on his way back to Del Mar

Triple Crown champion American Pharoah (Pioneerof the Nile) left Monmouth Park the morning after his smashing victory in Sunday's Haskell Invitational (G1), bound for trainer Bob Baffert's Del Mar base.
