2007 Travers Stakes, Saratoga, 8/25

This race was supposed to be a cakewalk for Street Sense, since his three main rivals in the three-year-old division (Rags to Riches, Curlin, and Hard Spun) didn't run. But a complete upstart named Grasshopper really tested him in the stretch. Grasshopper is pretty high up on my list of horses to watch for the rest of '07 and into '08.
